Here's the problems defining feminism:

1. The definition is old as fuck and if you think the meanings of words don't change over time or vary from culture to culture then you're delusional, and using an appeal to definition fallacy.

2. Feminism is a movement, and as with all movements their goals change over time.

In short, the current dictionary definition is unreliable. Modern feminists campaign for "safe spaces" (spaces in which free speech is shit on, sometimes segregated by race and gender), an end to "man-spreading". More radicals will call for things such as national castration day and shipping of all men to concentration camps. If you identify as a feminist, and you do not believe in the false victim narratives, the concepts of patriarchy, toxic masculinity and internalised misogyny, then my question to you is why on earth would you tie yourself to a movement that by in large does. Feminism does not equal equality, it's simply a vehicle towards it; unfortunately, the vehicle bounced right off the metaphorical wall of equality and got launched so far back that the driver decided to say "fuck it" and reverse as far as they could. If you wish to be someone who believes in equality without being tied down to a movement so incompetent that they believe that the gender wage gap is down to sexism, I suggest you look into egalitarianism.
What a surprise, that teacher force feeding those young girls identity politics and a victim narrative bigger than Kim Kardashians ass is a big advocate for feminism

The reason chivalry is dead.
Guy: (holds the door open for the seemingly kind lady)
Feminist: Don't hold the door for me asshole. I'm a strong and independent woman and I can hold the door open for myself.
Guy: Don't flatter yourself, I hold the door open for dudes too.

the feminist movement of the 1970s is not even comparible to today's feminism that is complaining about video games and movies

The singular theory and belief that women within the western world need a system to prop them up and give them equality on every issue from social reform to political placement. This theory ignores the vast amount of information and evidence that every issue it brings up is primarily based around a choice that a woman makes compared to that of their male counterparts.

The movement contains a vast variety of different perspectives, all centring around the doctrine of "patriarchy" and the newer "Kyriarchy" systems, that inversely target the men of the world, placing blame on their gender for the theorised problems of women in the modern world.

It has a track record of imposing itself on other systems of thought and belief as in "feminist science" and "feminist psychology", rarely producing things that are of worth to the field the feminist label has been placed on it.

Feminism is - in the end - an outdated form of Womens Equality, with the legislation and changes to law that have been placed in, the simple fact of the matter is that while inequalities do exist in the world, the primary reason for these are womens choices rather than an imposed system of male supremacy.
"I think that there should be equal amounts of male and females in board rooms"
"I agree...want to take the training course we offer so you can do that?"
"what, I...no-no thanks, I'd rather moderate and keep things a certain way on Urban Dictionary, I mean if I don't, some alt-right, cis, het white male might make posts that disagree with how I see the world."

In theory: Social Movement for Equal Rights.

In practice: Social Movement for Women Privilege.

Feminism can't be criticized within reason because you're automatically sexist, misogynist and are performing hate speech, even if what you're saying makes sense.

Most feminists you'll encunter are unreasonable. They have a shield and are in defence mode. It doesn't matter what you say, you might as well point out all the inconsistencies of feminism in the world, their way of arguing is by ignoring all your points and stating or even shouting their worldview because "they are right".

Another reason why you can't reason with feminists is because it's not just ignorance but deliberate ignorance. Any feminist who would have wanted to see the truth for herself could have just googled the other side of the argument and she would have seen:
- While males don't have as much privilege as feminism states.
- Bad things feminism has done making the world an even more inequal place.
- Feminism's worldview is inaccurate and sexist.

It is important to notice that not all feminists are bad, only the majority of them are.
It is also important to notice that not all women are feminists, dispite of feminism worldview that a non-feminists woman is a victim of the patriarchy, they are just women with reason. One must only google image "I don't need feminism" to see it.

As the maker of this I might be labeled by feminists as a sexist, a women hater and stuff like that. Feminists love labels.
- Feminism fights for equal rights!

- If feminism is for equal rights, then why has feminism tried to ban peeing while standing up in Sweden or fought against female rapists being arrested, charged and convicted of rape, in India ?

- Those are feminazi, bad apples, not feminists!

- But I see them all the time, pretty much all "feminists" I see are feminazi while there's only a handful of good feminists that have little influence compared to what you would call feminazi.... And the "patriarchy"... where males have unearned privilege and all the rights they need is not even backed up by anything, workplace death is 9-1 to men, worse sentence for the same crime is 20-1 to men, homeless ratio is 4-1 to men, winner of child custody is 5-1 to women, not to mention that women can decide alone whether they want to do an abortion if they don't want the child even if it's the men's child too, but if the man doesn't want the child and the woman does he still has to pay alimony, men can't get as much as women with good looks either, where is our privilege ?

- STOP OPPRESING ME WOMEN HATER!

Feminism is the radical notion that women are human beings too.
Yes, we know they are. But that's not what feminism is about.

Anti-feminism is the radical notion that by taking men's rights you don't make equality.

- I don't like feminism.
- You're a women hater, sexist, alt-righter, wicked person.
