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!!!

Someone who regards the human race as a line of Barbie and Ken dolls. Any man or woman who doesn't fit the model of a Barbie or a Ken is deemed defective. (Unfeminine women are accused of "trying to be men," un-masculine men are deemed "pussies" or "fags," etc.) The anti feminist blames feminism for the fact that the sexes don't look like the cast of "Leave it to Beaver" or "Happy Days," assuming that tomboys, career women, homosexuals, and nerds never existed before the women's lib movement of the 1960s came along and "destroyed femininity/masculinity."
