You always had a choice - to be a stay at home mom/wife or to work. Clearly you are a feminist because you chose to work. But you would also have been a feminst if you chose to stay at home and collect wife bonii. That's really just the core of feminism - being a feminist.

Here's how it relates to you - with increased access to birth control and abortion, less babies will be born to women who are unlikely to raise them to be productive members of society. That alleviates your future tax burden.

If you're saying that the core of feminism is giving women the ability to make a choice about what they want to do with their life, then it sounds like a pretty good movement.

That should be the core of any movement.

Do whatever you want, provided you're not directly hurting someone else by doing it, and deal with the consequences of your decisions.

These types of articles have become unintentionaly hilarious because apparently anything a woman does now promotes feminism.

Although - this type of thinking does align with their constant accusations that any action a man takes promotes the patriarchy

I don't think the hilarity of this article was unintentional. It's clearly sensational click bait meant to get a rise out of people.

The "consequences" of the bad decisions women make are typically passed on to the taxpayer, fwiw.

Please describe how this is apparent.

Has 'Big Feminism' come out in support of this woman as a feminist example?

This is literally a woman, saying about herself, that her behavior is 'feminist'. And you are using this to criticize feminism itself rather than the woman. Feminism may or may not be a terrible movement (everyone can have their own opinion), but using this example to suggest the things you are suggesting is an example of very poor reasoning skills.

Women making a decision about working or being a SAHM getting a wife bonus is passed on to the tax payers?

Or are you talking about the various childbirth consequences of sex? A decision made by two people of different genders, typically.
