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 biggest disgrace to my gender.

Feminism used to be about women getting the same rights as men, such as the right to vote and equal pay at work.
Now feminism is a movement full of women who seem to think that their ability to push a baby out of their vagina entitles them to bigger and better everything.
I am a young woman and I disagree with feminism.
It is pretty hypocritical to expect to be treated special because you are a female (such as tighter laws concerning rape or more leniancy if a woman becomes pregnant) yet they get upset when they aren't being treated exactly like a man. The feminists need to realize that women are not better than men. They are EQUAL. You don't see any laws that provide special treatment for men do you?

Example: Once I saw a feminist say that abortions should be legal AND be free. I am all for abortion rights, but demanding that it be free because your ass couldn't use the proper birth control before spreading your legs is absured.

And before you pull the rape card on me, keep in mind that if you go to the hospital after being raped, they give you medications to prevent pregnancy. I see no reason for free abortions.

A movement to promote women's interests at the expense of men.

Despite claims by some moderate (and misled) feminists to the contrary, feminism is not a movement for the betterment of men and women. If it was, it would be called humanism.

Feminists are not concerned, for example, about the fact that four times as many men commit suicide as women or that fewer and fewer boys attend college or graduate from high school.

Feminists demand that we treat men and women as exactly equal unless it suits women to differentiate between the sexes.

For example, a typical feminist will see no irony in arguing on one hand that women need more protection from domestic violence, rape and sexual harassment but on the other hand that women are just as good as men at construction and fighting crime, fires and wars.
Question: How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer: That's not funny, you sexist pig. I will report your hate speech and ensure that your career and reputation is destroyed. We need a speech code to regulate people such as yourself. And you need to attend sensitivity training so that you can be re-educated on the benefits of feminism.

A relentless political advocacy group pushing for special privileges for women, which pretends to be a social movement advocating equal rights for the genders. Because women have already achieved more than equal rights, a modern feminist is either an ignoramus or a liar. Current feminist dogma is based either on lies, or on emotional appeals. Shaming tactics are used to defend their position and to silence opposition. The central tenant of feminism is a belief in the patriarchy, which is in a giant amorphous conspiracy in which men conspire to oppress women. Because patriarchy can be used to explain everything, and there is no event which could possibly take place to disprove its existence, patriarchy theory is on the same level of intellectual honesty as astrology and homeopathy.

Accomplishments of Feminism:
-- Rewriting history to make people think that feminism earned women the right to vote and to work outside the home. What really happened was that technological advances made it possible for the first time in human history for women to be financially independent. When this happened, women asked for equal rights, and men gave it to them.
-- Making men and women hate each other.
-- Turning women in the US, UK, and some other western countries into vicious, useless, self-entitled cunts.
-- Destroying men's dignity, and in some cases their rights.
Feminism:

Feminists Claim: Women are more likely to be victims of violence.
Reality: Unincarcerated men are more likely to be victims of every type of violent crime than unincarcerated women, apart from rape. The majority of total rapes happen to men in prison.

Source: Bureau of Justice Statistics

Feminist Claim: Women make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns, and this is discrimination.
Reality: The 77 cents statistic comes form comparing nurses and hair stylists to doctors and lawyers. When one factors in things like work hours, work experience, education, and job position, women make closer to 95 cents for every dollar a man earns.

Sources: You should go to wikipedia and click on the little squares. Some of those squares include sources like consad research corporation, and Times.

Feminist Claim: There is work place discrimination against women.
Reality: More laws have been passed in the past several decades protecting women from dirty jokes than laws have been passed protecting men from dying. Affirmative action for women is explicit discrimination against men, and there is no such institutionalized discrimination against women. Women are the only ones who have the right to sue for having their feelings hurt.

The abuse of something that once stood for equal rights for women. Now it is just used to take away rights from men and make them second class citizens.

An idea that stood for the equality of women and men once (about 30 years ago)but is now just about kicking men in the balls and treating them with extreme bias and unfairness.
"Dude how's your new job at the gas station?"

"It's great. I sure wish feminism hadn't frightened me away from college though."

Feminism is the radical notion that men are not people.

Feminism dehumanizes men for political gain. Here are some examples from leading feminists in their own words:

"Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a maximum security prison, except for the imminent threat of release."

Germaine Greer.

"All men are rapists and that's all they are."

Marilyn French, Author; (later, advisor to Al Gore's Presidential Campaign.)

'To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he's a machine, a walking dildo." Scum Manifesto. (Valerie Solanas)

"All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman." Catherine MacKinnon (inventor of the sexual harassment paradigm, prominent legal feminist scholar; University of Michigan, & Yale.)

"I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He's just incapable of it." Former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.

"MALE:...represents a variant of or deviation from the category of female. The first males were mutants...the male sex represents a degeneration and deformity of the female. MAN:...an obsolete life form... an ordinary creature who needs to be watched...a contradictory baby-man..." A feminist Dictionary; ed. Kramarae and Triechler, Pandora Press, 1985:
Typical feminist: "Men tend to be more violent because of their testosterone-fueled macho tendencies. But feminism is against sexism"

A view that treating men and women equally must involve man-hating given the universality of women hating by men who'd vote for this definition.
If feminism is where women have all the power, why do men have all the Presidency?
