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.

A movement that promotes special treatment for women under the guise of equality. Feminists will try to justify irresponsibility by demonizing men. They believe that women shouldn't have to be accountable for their actions under any circumstances, and that the responsibility falls to men.

Egalitarianism is equality for all. Feminism is elevation of women.
Feminist: "Men shouldn't rape!"
Logic: *Men* aren't inherently rapists. Rapists, of both gender, shouldn't rape as it's against the law.

Feminism: "We live in a rape culture!"
Logic: Yes, thank god there isn't laws stopping me from preying on women! Wait a second, there is! Damn! So close!

Feminism: "Insert wage gap nonsense here!"
Logic: Go and google "CONSAD wage gap study"

Feminism: "Women need better treatment in prison, they get depressed when they can't see their children! They also get raped by their fellow inmates! Poor things!"
Logic: Thank Solomon, Gupta, Baby Jesus, that men don't get depressed or raped in prison! Women might need more sanitary towels in prison, that's about it. Also, I didn't mention this, but feminists also claim that the rules in female prisons are much more stringent that in male prisons. This can also be debunked logically seeing as a study conducted in 2008 concluded that on in every 18 men was incarcerated, while for women, it was 1 in 89. It makes sense that prisons with less inmates would have better control over them, kind of like how over crowed classrooms lead to children doing whatever the hell they want.

Feminism: "Domestic abuse nonsense"
Logic: So leave the relationship? No? You still love him? Why? He hit you. Obviously he's a monster. Oh, you smashed all of his stuff and told him you cheated on him with his best friend? You hit him first? Ah I see, poor you.

Feminism a marketing strategy targeting women to give up their freedom at home in order to be slaves to the corporate game!
Feminism : You need a job or you're nothing.

Housewife : I enjoy my freedom too much plus having children is a 24/7 job. Why is choosing to be their for your family first, something we look down upon today and shame for if we are a woman? I thought 'equality' was accepting people for their life chooses and opinions?

In the USA, a movement created by the government to turn non-taxable labor (raising children) into taxed labor thus stealing more money from an ignorant population of tax slaves. Women foolishly believe this has some aim of helping women when it has only led to miserable working women buried in student loan debt who aren't even free to raise their own children. Hitler enacted free child are right away too..not to help women but to start the indoctrination of children even earlier. This movement has basically destroyed the family unit in the USA leaving unwed births at more than 50%.
Looking back on her life choices and down the barrel of 100k in school loans the professional woman now wonders why if feminism was about choices and equality....why was being a stay at home mother never a choice...

The belief that both genders should be equal by focusing solely on one of them.
Feminism is a joke.

A special interest group for women too unpleasant to get laid.
"I may not have a guy willing to fuck me, but I've got enough money from the government to buy a horse-sized dildo! Thank you Feminism!"

The belief in the political, social, and logistic superiority of women to men. Female followers, especially zealots, are known to embark on quests to recruit white knights in the most insidious and covert ways she can imagine. The belief that manual labour and the dirty, dangerous jobs are for men, whom they describe as disposable and inferior.
Feminist: #KillAllMen! Women are the wave of the future! All men are scum and should be disposed for women's benefit and women's only!
Female Detractor: Wow. Feminists sure do hate men. Not my kind of faith at all.
Feminist: Traitor! Feminism is about equality for the genders!
Male Detractor: But you just claimed, seconds ago, that women were superior to men.
Feminist: HELP!! POLICE! HE'S RAPING ME!!!
