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.

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"

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*

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"

Feminism was women's way of saying goodbye to men. And now men are beginning to say goodbye to women.
"Radical" feminism is now being blamed for driving a wedge between men and women. But the truth is that most women were perfectly happy to sit back and watch it happen.

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.
