A realist. Someone who realizes men and women are not created equal and social expectations of men and woman evolve from simple biological truths. This is opposed to a feminist, who lives in a fantasy land where men and women are exactly the same and should be treated as such.

Antifeminists do not wish for woman to be "enslaved". This is an appeal to fear by many prominent feminist who would like to ignore the fact that men are expected by traditional society to do certain things we may not find pleasent either - such as go to war, work at a job we don't like, etc.

Rather, antifeminists wish to reduce the harm caused by feminists which has perverted the natural order of gender relations (which is largely a cultural universal) in favor of a plastic, manufactured society not based in reality. This type of society has lead to a gradual erosion of woman's happiness since the 1950's.
Feminist: Why should I be treated different from you just because you have a penis!!!
Antifeminist: There are more differences between men and women than that. Look at upper body strength, different cognitive functioning, pitch of the voice, The skeletal, respiratory, and muscular system, reproduction...
Feminist: aha! You just want to make me into a baby-making machine!!! You want to roll back society to the 50's!!!!
Antifeminist: well, studies show women were much happier in the 50's...
Feminist: So! I'd rather be miserable and free than happy and enslaved!!!!
Antifeminist: i'm not trying to enslave you...
Feminist: Yes, you said so!!!

1. One who rejects feminism (the ideology) not women (the gender)

2. One who believes in equal rights for both men and women
The antifeminist corrected the Women's Studies Lecturer on unequal payment for women, stating that such an assertion did not account for danger premiums, actual hours worked, paternity vs. maternity leave, retirement ages or lifestyle choices

A person who rejects the modern feminist movement, but believes that women and men should still be treated equally and have equal rights. Likely debates feminists on subjects such as patriarchy, the pay gap, and reproductive rights. Is NOT a misogynist.
Person 1: "Hey, what do you think of feminism?"
Person 2: "I'm an antifeminist, I disagree with it because it creates false issues and blows real issues out of proportion."
Person 1: "Wow! You must be a total woman-hating misogynist pig! I bet you think all women belong in the kitchen!"
Person 1: "Not at all, I fully support gender equality, but not the modern feminist movement because it is inherently broken."

A group of people who are generally noted as being against or denying the concepts of feminism. There are three sub-groups within Antifeminism similar to the two sub-groups within Feminism (Feminism & Feminazism/Modern Feminism). These groups are defined by their approach towards the subject of Feminism and how they stand towards the Feminism Sub-Groups, these three sub-groups are; Antifeminazisists, Standard Antifeminists & Misogynistic Antifeminists (A.K.A. Misogynists). Antifeminazists know the difference between Feminazis & Feminists while Antifeminists, do not, both Sub-Groups agree however that some statements made by Feminists in general are wrong, poorly worded or warped in some way. Misogynistic Antifeminists are usually seen as partially sexist individuals who believe that some amount of time in the past, civilization had reached gender equality and that women have gotten too much power.
The following is an example of all five sub-groups between Feminism and Antifeminism, A is a Classic Feminist, B is a Feminazi, C is an Antifeminazist, D is a Standard Antifeminist & E is a misogynistic Antifeminst.

A: Men and Women should be equal, there is bias towards men being hired at Company X
B: Men should always be put second to women, unless there are no women looking for work at Company X, Company X shouldn't hire any men and should fire all its current Male Staff, regardless of whether or not they'll be able to quickly fill the missing jobs.
C/D: The reason Company X doesn't hire as many women is because there are less women looking for work at Company X, therefore if Company X is hiring an equal percentage of the Male Employment Seekers & Female Employment Seekers then they are going to hire more males.
D: A & B, I don't understand why you are so against the idea of Men being allowed to work at Company X.
E: You're all wrong, Company X was better back when there were more men being hired, look at how ineffective it has gotten in its production, we reached gender equality Y years ago, this has just become about how much further women can force men to give in.

One who is against gender equality
The hashtag "#distractinglysexy" has recently become popular in response to antifeminist Tim Hunt's statement that claimed it was too difficult to work with female scientists in a lab.
