The belief that women are (or should be considered as)either entirely equal or superior to men in intelligence, physical traits, or whatever else one could come up with. Okay, look, there's some interesting things to consider when it comes to how women and men are treated in society. It is surprising how some feminists use social injustices done to them in the past to justify their superiority. Of course women should be considered equal when it comes to value of life or starting wages (let the quality of work speak for itself, not gender you big business losers). Women should be able to be independant and make their own choices and let them BE HEARD. But, come on ladies, the feminazis and female chauvinists out there, let's not controdict ourselves here! You say that men being superior to women is wrong (true); people generally have the idea that women being raped or abused is totally wrong (which is totally true because it's HORRIBLE and WRONG and rapists deserve to GO TO HELL AND BURN). But pain is pain and inferiority is inferiority no matter who experiences it; some are men, some are women, but we all are human. People who are willing to do the very thing they loathe (such as forcing the opposite gender into inferiority) is no better than the people who did it to them first. When a women is abused by a man, we say "leave that bastard." When a man is abused by a woman, we sympathize with the woman, who usually complains of angry girl disease or something. Who holds the door for whom? That's right, men hold the door, pull out the chair, and places their coats over puddles for women. Yes, some men are total jerks, but some women are too. Women can rape and objectify men just like men can rape and objectify women. Women have their strengths and weaknesses just like men do. Women weren't built to be superior or equal (in every way) as men, and men weren't built to be superior or equal (in every way) as women. It's not about equality (what a crappy world it would be if everyone was the same), it's about balance. Why not embrace the things that make you YOU, with gender playing the role as gender only (I know, way too optimistic to be true but we can try, can't we)? Why not work on creating a world where people can be respected for the things they can do than the things they can't instead of COMPLAINING about everything? Racists, sexists, antisemitists, people against homosexuals, anyone who "hates" someone for any unjustifiable reason other than "just 'cause" (most reasons are stupid enough to be just so)only create imbalance. I mean, if some traumatic experience happened to you and you can't possibly heal and not be against a certain group, well, you're still hurting too, I understand that. Still, that gives you no right to lay that hurt upon innocent people (if you are mentally capable to know what you are doing). And no, being a feminist doesn't make you a lesbian or manly or whatever; your voice should be heard too, just, tone it down and focus on solving the issues rather than making more! I know, not a definition, but neither are a lot of other entries either (check out racism)...Oh, and by the way, I am 100% WOMAN, and can be proud of it without the need to belittle men. That's why I talk so much (ha). I'm against people using inequality to justify their own horribly prejudiced actions, that's all. Oh, and look at all the subtypes of feminists before anyone insists that feminists are only women who want men and women to be treated equal. Feminists are individuals with individual minds, you know. Don't use bias to support bias, please. It doesn't convince anyone but the insane and maybe your mother.
Consider the many forms of feminism: Amazon, Anarchist, Black, Chicana, Christian, Cultural, Difference, Eco, Equity, Equality, Fat, Gender, Individualist, Islamic, Jewish, Lesbian, Liberal, Marxist, Modern, New, Postmodern, Pro-life, Radical, Religious, Separatist, Sex-positive, Social, Socialist, Trans, Womanism. Not all forms or uses of feminism is justifiable. Feminism is necessary as a social movement but can be just as damaging once a group of mental or ignorant people misuse it.

The idea that stupid ugly women believe and say they should get the same rights as men, and then claim superiority to men. they believe that men should still hold doors for them and pull out their chairs and treat them like queens. when in fact they should get off their fucking high horse and do it themselves. don't expect equality when you believe in your superiority. Bitches, sluts, hoes, tramps, cunts.
Marci: womenz shuld get equeel raightsz!
Me: Yeah I think so too
Marci: yaaa can you buy me that purse????
Me: why don't you buy it. I don't think you need something that expensive just to hold shit. If you believe in feminism, then maybe you should buy it, I mean i would never spend that much money on a man.
Marci: I'M A WOMAN TREAT ME WITH RESPECT GOD DAMN IT BUY ME SHIT!
Me: why don't you buy me something?
Marci: THE MAN BUYS THINGS FOR THE WOMAN
Me: *facepalm*

Ideology that helped to justify half ass motherhood, glorified prostitution, and pretending to like what men naturally like. It helped to break up marriages across the United States leaving men without children to father and nothing productive to do. Founded by women who wished they had a penis and were ashamed of estrogen. Ironically, feminism is strengthened by preventing men from being men.
Frank: Hey where is your wife?
Eric: We got divorced, she embraced feminism.
Frank: Sorry to hear that. What now.
Eric: I guess I'll just work, watch sports, and rent porn.
Frank: Join the crowd.

The movement which seeks to place women above men and trample men into the dirt. Feminists will tell you that their aim is to bring about equality, but equality ceased to be the aim of feminism years ago. Women are now (and have been for at least 5-10 years) given exactly the same treatment in every area of life as men. Women / Feminists now wish to take over -- far from equality.
Joe: So Jane, tell me about Feminism.
Jane: Shut up!
Joe: No seriously, I'm interested.
Jane: Shut up! We don't need you, your just a man. A stupid male chovunist pig!!
Joe: O Jane, I can assure you ...
Jane: *Chokes Joe to death and cuts off his penis*

The result of society's failure to explain why women are MEANT to play a submissive roll in society. Feminism is the desire to either enslave or eradicate all men from the face of the earth. All feminism is radical feminism.
Why the fuck would it be called "feminism" if it was for equality?

She says she's a supporter of "real" feminism, but we all know better.

A doctrine, originally formulated during the 18th and 19th century as women's emancipation and suffragetism, that advocated the emancipation of women and attempts to get everyone else to recognize that women have equal rights to men.

Modern feminism is characterized by its doctrine of 'expanding choice for both genders', as feminists ostensibly desire a society where not only women may be allowed to do whatever they please (within reasonable, human limits), but to also allow men to enjoy the same freedoms as women should, which should include the choice of NOT doing something, if they do not wish to do so.

Unfortunately, thanks to misunderstanding and human nature, nobody really believes in this shit anymore, and people stereotypically associate feminists with hairy-armpit owning dykes who hate all men, and opponents of feminists as hairy boorish pig-subhumans.
It's fucking sad, but feminism is a great example of why humanity is a damn sight dumber than everyone likes to believe.

Just another ism to try and destroy the white mans world, because white women hate thier men, and dont want to be with or supported by them anymore. These kind of Women think they're goddesses in need of worship, this is why women seek men that deep down inside they deem lesser, like black men, because it makes them feel superior. Because we all know feminist have that kind of mind set.
just google white women, and all it comes up with is black men and white women interracial dateing, why are you women so keen on destroying white men? feminism
