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Feminism is - in the end - an outdated form of Womens Equality, with the legislation and changes to law that have been placed in, the simple fact of the matter is that while inequalities do exist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

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.
