1. "Humanism" already means a different thing. If it’s the "fem" prefix that is really hanging you up, just think of all the words using prefixes from other languages that have nothing to do with their meanings. Ambul-, for example, means "to walk," but our ambulances certainly aren’t ambulatory. Frater means "brother," but you can fraternize with men and women whom you aren’t related to. Feminism has that "fem" prefix, but it is concerned with more than just women and is practiced by more than women. The fact that "human" is in the word "humanism" doesn’t mean it’s the non-gendered form of feminism, because English doesn’t work that way.

    Dayum Baby: Should Iggy Azalea Be Writing About Female Empowerment?

    Iggy+Azalea+Sweet+IggyAnna Kendrick stole plenty of viewers’ hearts with her Pitch Perfect role so it’s no surprise that many were happy to see her on Saturday Night Live this past week.

    I had my eye on a particular part of the show that got me thinking about rap, race, gender and the work of Iggy Azalea.
