My name is Grant Milliken and I am a sophomore transfer student coming from The University of Texas at Arlington and am a psychology major. I am from Fort Worth, Texas but know Austin well because UT is my dad’s alma mater.
Feminism to me means striving for equality. Although I like this idea of feminism, the feminism I most commonly encounter is radical feminism. I think this form of feminism hurts true feminism by making it appear sexist against men. This diminishes the true goal of feminism that all people should be equal.
I think as a class the best way to succeed is to engage. To me there is a difference between engaging and participating. When I think about participating, I think making myself talk to get points towards my grade. When I engage in a class I am interested and want to talk about the subject matter. No matter what the goal of the class is the students must engage to get to that goal.
