Maybe your feminism says Valentine's Day is an empty ritual of patriarchal capitalism that reinforces harmful gender norms and shames people who are single or who otherwise don't meet society's heteronormative, cisgender, monogamous expectations of romance.
Or maybe your feminism says we should reclaim Valentine's Day to celebrate all kinds of love between all kinds of people, including close friendships.
That's cool too!
Or maybe no matter what you think of Valentine's Day (or feminism), you'd still enjoy sending some fun cards to your feminist friends or significant other(s) this February 14.
