First of all i want to say that most of the entries on feminism are disrespectful and infuriating. The arguement that feminism states that women are better than men was created and is sustained by insecure men who are afraid of patriarchy tumbling down on their priveledged ignorant heads. WAKE UP people and look around you. all those "examples" of brain size, decreased male entry into college, etc are just excuses to either degrade women or only superficially examine the issues of gender equality.

FEMINISM IS:
1.)respecting people of all genders (recognizing the diversity in sexuality, from homosexuals, transgendered, heterosexuals and transexuals) as human beings that deserve to be treated with respect.

2.) recognizing the past inequalities that have historically denied women access to many social, economic and political spheres that are mostly occupied by men.

3.)Recognizing the result of these inequalities have lasting impacts today
respecting a person enough to ask their consent before having sex

not seeing a woman as an object but as a human being, this means making eye contact not checking out her body

listening to women (and men of course) respectfully as you would men

if you are a heterosexual straight white male, check your priveledge when talking about equality and recognize other people's experience as valid instead of monopolizing experiences relating to gender equality

feminism is RESPECT

The belief in the political, social, and logistic superiority of women to men. Female followers, especially zealots, are known to embark on quests to recruit white knights in the most insidious and covert ways she can imagine. The belief that manual labour and the dirty, dangerous jobs are for men, whom they describe as disposable and inferior.
Feminist: #KillAllMen! Women are the wave of the future! All men are scum and should be disposed for women's benefit and women's only!
Female Detractor: Wow. Feminists sure do hate men. Not my kind of faith at all.
Feminist: Traitor! Feminism is about equality for the genders!
Male Detractor: But you just claimed, seconds ago, that women were superior to men.
Feminist: HELP!! POLICE! HE'S RAPING ME!!!

A view that treating men and women equally must involve man-hating given the universality of women hating by men who'd vote for this definition.
If feminism is where women have all the power, why do men have all the Presidency?

A redundant movement that granted women all wonderful things men earned without earning them (the right to vote which men only had because they had to pay for it with conscription which means they're life could be put on the line at any moment). The movement has devolved into a hate movement where anything not giving women special treatment is hating women thus justify hate against men. The movement as a whole refuses to fact check anything like "women get paid 25% less then men" which is false, they EARN 25% less because they take lower paying jobs and don't work overtime as much... women are paid the same period it's in the books. The movement is just hate and will only be hate, they don't give a shit about anyone but women and will trample men to get what they want. We are not insecure, WE just see through your bullshit.
"Feminism, the inability for women to accept reality so they have to blame things on others"
"I showed a feminist yesterday that it is illegal to pay women less". "What did she say?". "She looked at it and said patriarchy and to stop oppressing her"

an ideology that focuses on woman being treated as equals to men. There is no sexism in this concept- because we live in a patriarchal society, males are automatically given a superior position. calling feminism sexist is also ignoring centuries of history where men have oppressed women.

a common misconception about feminism is that one is supporting woman's equality but opposing man's. This is not true. Supporting something like gay rights doesn't mean you're against a straight person's rights, and the same goes for feminism in terms of equality between the sexes.
woman:
I refused to receive a higher pay check than my male co-worker for doing the same amount of work because i support feminism.

man:
I refused to receive a higher pay check than my female co-worker for doing the same amount of work because i support feminism.
