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.

Way for absolutely ANY girl (be it teacher, classmate, boss, co-worker, hell even the girl who works the late shift at burger king) to give you selfrighteous bullshit for a full halfhour about rights and discrimination when you've never done anything to a girl in your life and half the shit she's talking about never even concerned her and happened before you were even born. This generaly results in everyone within earshot to look down on you when 97% of the time you didn't even say anything wrong.

Many people are victims of this everyday but can do nothing because the moral highground has been stolen by whichever women pulled feminism on you.
John- "hey gary why the long face?"

gary- "last night I was talking about the olympics with amy and she asked why the men and women had separate events, I just said it was cause otherwise it wouldn't be fair, but she pulled feminism on me and locked me out of the flat cause she said I was a pig..."

John- "I feel ya man, we've all been there"

Judging by what it does feminism is a movement that seeks superior rights and privileges for women while hiding under the guise of "equality"

Feminists tend to claim that their movement is about "equality" and often use the dictionary definition as proof. But the thing is that what the dictionary says and what feminism does are two completely different things. Actions speak louder than words, therefore feminism should be judge by what it does instead of by what the book says. And through its actions the feminist movement has constantly shows that it isn't about equality, but is actually about female supremacy and misandry - skewed the system in women's favor, seeking superior rights & privileges for women, demonizing men & boys etc.. It is very obvious that "equality" is nothing more than a mask that the feminist movement uses to conceal its female supremacist and anti-male agendas.

Feminism is the idea we can solve all inequalities between the genders by focusing solely on the issues of one of them.
Feminism: Women being raped in prison? We have to stop this horror.

Men being raped in prison? Ha, they'll learn their lesson now

Feminism: Lets hold a women's rights conference. Yay for equality.

What did you say? A men's rights conference? Oh my God, the evil misogyny We have to silence these people.

An Ideology that supports that women are superior to men, whether biologically, socially, or mentally. Common to contrary belief, Feminists support sexism with female bias. If feminists really did want sexual equality, they would be called 'Human Equality Activists', and not 'Feminists'. As you can see, the word 'Feminists' stems from the word Female. If the movement DID support true equality, then the word would not be based off any sex as to avoid bias.
Feminists are supporters of Feminism, are also referred to as Feminazi's.

A hateful victim complex designed so that women in contemporary society can be sluts, princesses, or social justice warriors and if you openly disagree with their behavior or ideologies you are a raping pig cis misogynist.

The premise of feminism is that women are still horribly mistreated every day more so than men and that everything wrong with their lives is because the patriarchy. Because women have convinced themselves they are at a disadvantage, they have no shame in verbally harassing anyone who disagrees with them or silencing them altogether because the average feminist typically isn't capable of debating anything regarding feminism.
An excerpt from a debate of a man trying to reason with an advocate of Feminism.

John: "Mary, do you have any statistical evidence to back up your claim that men are more physically abusive than women?"

Mary: "Shut the fuck up John. You sexist white cis misogynist. I don't have to provide anything, you don't deserve it because you are such a hateful rapist pig."
