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.

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.

Simply the belief that women and men should be treated equally.

This is very different from man hating

"Man hating" is bashing all men

Feminism is feeling we should have the same rights infact, many men are feminist as well.

Movement that promotes the equality of not only man and women, but also the rights of every human independently of race, age, nationality, sexuality, religion.

Often confused by the empowerment of women and oppression of man.

Most people don't believe that feminism supports equality, seeing that the base of the movement's name is "female", feminism was created firstly to support the oppressed gender at the moment which were females but as years passed by, feminism started to support other oppressed groups such as homosexuals, transgendered, Muslim, Jews, etc..
Feminism also fights against gender roles, stereotypes, beauty standards and other problems commonly found in today's society.

Feminism means, in fact, equality.
I'm a hardcore feminist that fights for the equality of every human being!

An archaic term that is coined to mean equality between the sexes. First and Second wave feminism still follow this definition, and the suffragettes deserve respect for winning the women the vote and so on.

However, there is a different kind of feminism today. 3RD WAVE. The third wave is what today's society knows as SJWs, "The Triggered", Tumblrinas, and Feminazis. These loveless creatures usually take the form of an obese woman with brightly coloured hair and an attitude even more unattractive than their physical phenotypes. The third wave are a very, very different breed of woman in comparison to the other waves, and should not be associated as such.

Third Wave Feminism can be described as: "A political movement of prejudiced first world women who wish to silence free speech and dominate the world in a new age of matriarchy"

That being said, there is also the sad loveless creature known as the "male feminist" who is even more hypocritical, delusional and sees supporting these women as the only way they could ever be loved, but this rarely works out as many feminists are also queer/lesbian and despise males.

Billie: "No Bob, that's not right. The first and second waves actually helped the world."
Bob: "Oh right, sorry. 3RD WAVE feminism is cancer!"
Billie: "haha"
