Feminism is a word that means equal rights for women. Technically, most feminists should actually be called humanists. I'll ignore that since it was, and to some extent still is an important movement. Way back in the day, life was pretty damn bad for women everywhere. No vote, no driving, you know about that stuff anyway. Eventually, much of the inequality dissappeared, thanks to the hard wark of early feminism. Sadly some still persist to this day. Fortunately, most people accept that such social changes are bound to be gradual, and eventually, true equality will exist. This is the type of world that everyone should strive to live in, not just feminists. But alas, in more recent times, there has been a growing movement of "militant feminism". This is alternatively known as female chauvenism, and feminazism. These people often demand MORE rights than men have, usually by arguing that they are superior to men and blame men for everything. Yes men started wars. Are you saying that women wouldn't have? Hilary Clinton supported the Iraq war. Margeret Thatcher sent troops to the Falklands. To propagate such a view on men is a sexist view you chauvenist pig-bitch. Such a view is not part of feminism, or at least it's original usage of the word. These people are betraying the women who fought for their rights. Possibly the worst part about them is that they are either the prevalent female authors and commenters for feminism on urban dictionary, or that these women are denying the existence female sexism that has taken seed among the femism movement. I've talked to these people. In real life. Not on the net. They DO exist.
Feminist of the militant variety(Yes, she actually said this):"It's not fair to generalise women, men allways do that" and "men shouldn't have any say in abortion"

Me:"I'd say TITS OR GTFO, but you're pretty damn fuck-fugly)

Feminism gets a bad name because of these asshats

Feminism a marketing strategy targeting women to give up their freedom at home in order to be slaves to the corporate game!
Feminism : You need a job or you're nothing.

Housewife : I enjoy my freedom too much plus having children is a 24/7 job. Why is choosing to be their for your family first, something we look down upon today and shame for if we are a woman? I thought 'equality' was accepting people for their life chooses and opinions?

The belief that women are and should be treated as potential intellectual equals and social equals to men. These people can be either male or female human beings, although the ideology is commonly (and perhaps falsely) associated mainly with women.

The basic idea of Feminism revolves around the principle that just because human bodies are designed to perform certain procreative functions, biological elements need not dictate intellectual and social functions, capabilities, and rights.

Feminism also, by its nature, embraces the belief that all people are entitled to freedom and liberty within reason--including equal civil rights--and that discrimination should not be made based on gender, sexual orientation, skin color, ethnicity, religion, culture, or lifestyle.

Feminists--and all persons interested in civil equality and intellectuality--are dedicated to fighting the ignorance that says people are controlled by and limited to their biology.
Feminism is the belief that all people are entitled to the same civil rights and liberties and can be intellectual equals regardless of gender. However, you should still hold the door for a feminist; this is known as respect or politeness and need have nothing whatever to do with gender discrimination.

An idea that stood for the equality of women and men once (about 30 years ago)but is now just about kicking men in the balls and treating them with extreme bias and unfairness.
"Dude how's your new job at the gas station?"

"It's great. I sure wish feminism hadn't frightened me away from college though."

A movement that promotes special treatment for women under the guise of equality. Feminists will try to justify irresponsibility by demonizing men. They believe that women shouldn't have to be accountable for their actions under any circumstances, and that the responsibility falls to men.

Egalitarianism is equality for all. Feminism is elevation of women.
Feminist: "Men shouldn't rape!"
Logic: *Men* aren't inherently rapists. Rapists, of both gender, shouldn't rape as it's against the law.

Feminism: "We live in a rape culture!"
Logic: Yes, thank god there isn't laws stopping me from preying on women! Wait a second, there is! Damn! So close!

Feminism: "Insert wage gap nonsense here!"
Logic: Go and google "CONSAD wage gap study"

Feminism: "Women need better treatment in prison, they get depressed when they can't see their children! They also get raped by their fellow inmates! Poor things!"
Logic: Thank Solomon, Gupta, Baby Jesus, that men don't get depressed or raped in prison! Women might need more sanitary towels in prison, that's about it. Also, I didn't mention this, but feminists also claim that the rules in female prisons are much more stringent that in male prisons. This can also be debunked logically seeing as a study conducted in 2008 concluded that on in every 18 men was incarcerated, while for women, it was 1 in 89. It makes sense that prisons with less inmates would have better control over them, kind of like how over crowed classrooms lead to children doing whatever the hell they want.

Feminism: "Domestic abuse nonsense"
Logic: So leave the relationship? No? You still love him? Why? He hit you. Obviously he's a monster. Oh, you smashed all of his stuff and told him you cheated on him with his best friend? You hit him first? Ah I see, poor you.

A hateful victim complex designed so that women in contemporary society can be sluts, princesses, or social justice warriors and if you openly disagree with their behavior or ideologies you are a raping pig cis misogynist.

The premise of feminism is that women are still horribly mistreated every day more so than men and that everything wrong with their lives is because the patriarchy. Because women have convinced themselves they are at a disadvantage, they have no shame in verbally harassing anyone who disagrees with them or silencing them altogether because the average feminist typically isn't capable of debating anything regarding feminism.
An excerpt from a debate of a man trying to reason with an advocate of Feminism.

John: "Mary, do you have any statistical evidence to back up your claim that men are more physically abusive than women?"

Mary: "Shut the fuck up John. You sexist white cis misogynist. I don't have to provide anything, you don't deserve it because you are such a hateful rapist pig."
