Misinterpretations of the term 'FEMINIST':
Feminist = men hater. This is a confusion that occurs often in nature. Hating of men as a group, or generally hating a social group that presents a particular common trait (such as gender, color, belief, practice, hobby) constitutes a type of behavior which is known as discrimination. The term 'feminist' has positive connotations and thus is a term that differs and has nothing in common with the expression 'men hater.'

Misconception regarding the term 'feminist' = feminist means striving to achieve equality of men and women BUT on a social level. "Equality" in this context, means allowing the women to perform work that she can rightfully perform and rewarding women with the credit and respect due and commensurate to their respective intellectual abilities and work effort. Stating that 'women should pay for dinner just as men do' do not make the domain of what the term 'feminist' means. The process of romantic courtship as it is present in nature in most animal species involves the male gender individual performing certain rituals and displays of his physical qualities and his social power in order to advertise himself to female gender individuals as a good potential father (genetically, as well as in terms of his ability of caring for the offspring until they reach adulthood.) Therefore behaviors and displays that pertain to what constitutes "romantic courtship" have nothing to do with that which the term "feminism" describes. As "feminism" is a term that qualifies a woman from a purely intellectual and mental ability stand point.
In the light of misinterpreting the statement "feminism = women equality to men" we could ask a man and woman to perform a same physically strenuous task. It is expected and normal that a man would be more successful due to the more robust and rugged built of the male body.
FEMINISM -> does not argue with the laws of nature, it argues for an alteration of the outdated laws of a society.
Feminists ARE NOT Nazis, or women who can't get laid. The very existence of these views is proof that feminism still has a lot of work to do.
Some feminists shave, and some don't. Some are "fashionable", some aren't. Just like any other group of people.
Not all feminists are lesbians, though lesbians can be feminists. The ongoing Civil Rights movement and the push for gay marriage are often associated with feminism as each cause expresses a very sane desire to create world recognition of our intrinsic equality.
Max: She just believes in equal rights, man. I'm a feminist, too.
Jim the IV: Yeah man, but she's a feminist... so let's be really, really clever and tell everyone that she's a dyke that never shaves!
