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Feminism is - in the end - an outdated form of Womens Equality, with the legislation and changes to law that have been placed in, the simple fact of the matter is that while inequalities do exist in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."

What it used to be: "the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes."

What it is now: a way for (mostly) women, with radical ideologies, to express their hate on men. Feminists believe in "the patriarchy" (a male controlled society), which in fact, does not exist (and if it were to exist, women would still not be able to vote or do other basic things in first world countries.) Feminism used to matter in first world countries, but it is now irrelevant. There is no wage gap, and there is no bullshit like there used to be. However; feminism (the non-radical kind), is needed in third world countries. Third world countries need much more equality, and there is already enough evidence to suggest that.

TL;DR: feminism is supposed to be about equality of the sexes, but it is now about abolishing the non-existent "patriarchy".
Friend: "I'm a feminist!"
Me: "So you despise men and believe in the 'patriarchy'?"
Friend: "No...?"
Me: "Then you're not a feminist... thank the lord."

Feminism is about abolishing the non-existent patriarchy.

The TRUE meaning of feminism was the movement that encouraged gender equality. The face of feminism today is not at all how it is supposed to be. Feminists can be of any gender. But in todays society, female feminists reject male feminists because they just "dont get it". Todays feminism has turned to the wrong direction. It seems that most of their movement is anti-male and pro-female. They are even against people who arent feminists. This is not what it was once before.

A TRUE feminist would accept anyone, even if they are against what they believe. A TRUE feminist would not push their belief onto others. A TRUE feminist can be of ALL genders. A TRUE feminist would fight for equality for EVERYONE. A TRUE feminist would not degrade another human being.

The word "feminism" was not made from and for only females. Just look up who created the word and what it was supposed to be used for.

The things feminism fight:
Sexism (which can be expressed by all genders)
Racism
Anti-LGBTQ
Pro-male
Pro-female
Harrassment (in all shapes and form)
Rape (for all genders)
Shaming (body, career, physical health, mental health etc.)
Pedophiles
And much more

DO NOT oppose feminism because of what it has become today. Those people are NOT feminists. They are fighting wrong fights. If you want equality for ALL, you are a feminist. But do not stoop to the levels to the point where you are degrading the name itself by going against what it rightfully was.
The feminism movement has changed for the worse.

Contrary to popular belief and perhaps its name, feminism is not, in fact, a movement based on female superiority, but rather that men and women and people of all genders are equal. The name may be misleading, but the Webster Merriam Dictionary defines it as ' the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes'. Thus, anyone who wants total equality is a feminist and can consider themselves as such. Men can be feminists as well.
Feminism is not meant to discriminate against men but empower all genders.
