The Article in the "Fbomb blog, A Feminist Breakup written by Julie Z, particularly interested me.
This high school girl is a self-identified feminist who helps her friend through a tough breakup. Much like herself, the author's friend has strong feminist opinions. Julie is somewhat surprised at her friend's dramatic reaction to an ended relationship because her friend is a feminist; in her mind, feminists' lives don't revolve around or are severely impacted men. The author debates whether a person's feminist ideals or personality determines their reliance on men.
In my opinion, I think it is perfectly normal for a high school girl to be emotionally distraught about a break up. I do not think that it is un-feminist to cry or want companionship. In my mind there is a big difference between revolving your world around a man and accepting changes in your life.
Julie brings up an interesting point of how feminists are viewed as "emotionless robots"; they are expected to continually persevere for their rights and think entirely independent of male influences. I think that behind a person's strong values also lies a personality. How they react in certain situations is based on both their values and their personality traits. I think that Julie's friend is no less of a feminist after a hard-break up; it is just her demonstrating her natural reaction.
