  • Mood:
Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

I thought feminism meant I'm allowed to choose to be barefoot in the kitchen.

I thought feminism meant I'm allowed to go barefoot in the kitchen.
The choice bit becomes implicit doesn't it?

(Yes, it is an lj icon. No not mine. Don't know whose. No, I don't want to discuss the quote.)
I want to paint it on a t-shirt, but I'd feel stupid if I found out it was spelled wrong!
