Feminism was women's way of saying goodbye to men. And now men are beginning to say goodbye to women.
"Radical" feminism is 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.

An ideology defined by the following equation: F = (A + B) - C. Feminism equals Avarice plus Bigotry minus Conscience. Its most recent incarnation is characterized by supremacist whining, a form of double-think that would have made Orwell retch. Men are constantly reminded by feminists that women are taking the majority of jobs, starting more businesses than men, and generally acquiring more and more wealth at the expense of men. At the same time, feminists complain continuously about women's economic "oppression," (as though men have never been oppressed by impossible child support payments or unconscionable alimoney awards), the phoney "wage-gap" and the need for greater "equalization" (i.e. further plundering of men's earnings) in the economic sphere. Thus feminism gleefully predicts that men will become utterly disempowered while blithely demanding that they continue to subsidize the process. While perpetrating this nonsense, feminism still finds time to demand any prerogatives it deems fit to invent, squabble childishly about toilet seats AND AT THE SAME TIME complain about men's reluctance to commit to marriage (which, of course, is itself condemned as a misogynistic institution whenever it is expedient to do so). These are examples of the intellectual elasticity that allows feminism to present itself as correct on any issue, regardless of the facts or the eventual outcome. This, in turn, guides us to feminism's core philosophy: "Our say-so makes it so; if our pronouncements contradict each other, you males are required to believe both but only to the extent that they run counter to your interests and in favor of our convenience. This rule is absolute until it yields an outcome we don't like. Then we will pretend - and you are required to believe - that it never existed. Oh, and you are evil and sexist if you point to any flaw in this philosophy, even after we've abandoned or changed it. But you are a patronizing bastard if you fail to give our point-of-view your full critical consideration ... just as long as you don't disagree with it ... or agree with it for the wrong reasons ... and we will from time-to-time declare what the right and wrong reasons are ... and then change them to suit ourselves."
Feminism is nothing more than the politics of convenience.

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

Feminism is a politically correct, federally funded special interest hate group.
NOW's Clearinghouse Against Fathers' Rights, The 3.9 billion dollar VAWA based on the myth that only men commit domestic violence and only women are victims, feminists claim that the VAWA is sex neutral, but then, they also claim that feminism is about equality.

A left-wing movement in Western culture originating in the 1960's that seeks socio-economic equality between men and women.

Proponents of the movements cite years of hardship by women when they could not access the same basic privileges as men (e.g. such as the right to vote). They argue that even though throughout history most human societies have been patriarchal, rapid advances in the past hundred years have made it necessary to rethink the status of women in relation to men. They cite that the extremes of living in a patriarchal society such as domestic violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and discrimination against women as their primary reasons for supporting feminism.

Opponents of the movement argue that feminism has gone too far and has accomplished most of its original goals. They argue that if it proceeds any further, there is a real danger that feminism will go on to elevate the status of women and result in a generation of emasculated men. They add that feminism has hurt gender roles and made the typical family structure unstable and caused an increase in divorces, breakups, abortions, etc.. With a surplus of women working, they argue that this has resulted in them them being away from their spouse and children and them spending less time at home.
