'Chick' was originally designed to be a play off of 'chic' in order to contrast the depressing, straight-laced nature of most conspiracy news
shows with a more feminine and upbeat theme.
I personally just don't see an issue in it. I don't get easily put off with something feminine or even something that brings attention to a feminine
angle. I think we've been programmed to think anything that brings attention to the feminine or even the masculine as being wrong or even
I think THAT actually does more of a disservice because it makes us feel ashamed to identify with femininity or to feel as if we have to be some sort
of gender neutral entity to be taken seriously or accepted.
I don't know. I guess judging by my frequent use of pink avatars that I am very strongly, loudly, and proudly feminine and don't fall into the trap
that I HAVE to undergo gender neutrality to be respected.
Perhaps it's a form of anti-feminism, if you will.
Women in the spotlight often take on a sexually ambiguous persona so I'm kind of glad to be
able to be myself instead of being some overly PC serious 'must act androgynous' type.
That's just the way I see it, at least. It's another's right to disagree. I just try not to fall into the trap where we have to be eggshell walking
neutrals but instead can be what we are. I kind of feel like it says 'The women have something to say and we like conspiracies, too!' Not 'Well, I
better hide my sexuality if I'm going to do this.' I like the one of 'We're here and we're female.'
My perspective at least.
