slang word for "Masculism"
the belief that men or, in fact, our whole society including governments are subverted by feminism/feminists/women, making it impossible for men to live up to their "natural" potential of strong protectors
in many cases influenced by and linked to extreme right and anti-semitic ideologies
(in Europe) a mostly internet based movement fighting well organised edit wars and harrassing feminist activists, with notable exceptions such as Anders Breivik taking this ideology directly to the real world.
"Well, we need some opposition to feminism!" – "No we don't. We need social justice. Maleism is based on the idea of men's superiority. We need feminism, anti-racism, anti-classism." – "But men suffer too!" – "Yes they do at some points, and it'd be great of you to campaign against that. But neither feminism nor women are to blame. Take some responsibility, fight you own fights, be an ally to whoever is truly disadvantaged in a given society."

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

The basic idea of Maleism 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.

Maleism 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.

Maleists--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.
Maleism 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 maleist; this is known as respect or politeness and need have nothing whatever to do with gender discrimination.
