Phil: I don't understand what's wrong with Steve. He says everything is sexist and insists on pointing it all out to everyone around her--all the time! He won't listen to reason, and when I showed him irrefutable evidence, he blocked me.
Devon: I'm pretty sure he caught a bad case of feminism from his woman. Just leave him alone. He will snap out of it when he grows up.

The most crippling mental disorder in history. Feminists claim to be in support of equal rights for both sexes, but this was never, is not, and never will be true. If a man/woman so dares as to say that women have more rights than men (which they do, it's been proven several times), or even disagree with feminism in the slightest form, feminists will dog pile them until every bone in their body is broken. Feminists have been known to:

Hate men
Hate women
Believe in female supremacy
Be extremely hypocritical
Be relatable to Nazism
Censor free speech
Fry more brain cells than Donald Trump

Don't ever take feminists seriously, otherwise they might infect you too.

an idea that involves the fair and equal treatment of people, regardless of their gender. A feminist believes that while women are physically different from and think differently about some things than men, this does not make either superior or inferior, it just means that they are different and should not be used as a basis for preferential treatment either way. Supporters of equal treatment for both genders are called feminists, whether or not they themselves are female.
Note: some feminists, often referred to as feminazis, have given feminism a bad name by claiming that men are evil and that oppression lurks everywhere. This is unfortunate, as real feminism is about gender equality.
Feminism means that women are not *better* than men, just different from them, and should not be treated any better or worse than men for it.

A movement aiming to improve life for women, give them more rights and privileges. Back when women were treated unequally, this seemed like a strive for equality. Nowadays, the goal is unchanged. However, modern western society already has gender equality under the law in all aspects, so feminism strives for higher, not equal, rights.

A common misconception is that its goal is equality. That is the goal of egalitarianism.

Feminism has often attempted to bite more than it can swallow: trying to assimilate the atheist, homosexual, trans communities and other minorities that never asked for their 'help'.

Synonyms:
- ass cancer
Feminist: Yay, gay marriage is legal now! Score for feminism!
Homosexual: STFU, Feminism didn't do shit to help.

Femism is a collection of ideologies that have existed for around 200 years or so. It is used as a blanket term for many things, but really there are as many types of feminism as there are cats. At its root, feminism has been about equal rights for women, (votes, pay, legal, social, respect).

Some people accuse feminists of hating men or viewing women as superior. Some radfems are like that, but most aren't. The very difficult struggles of women in the 20th century has resulted in signifigant gains for women IN 1ST WORLD COUNTRIES, to the point where some crazies call men worse off than women. Feminism isn't solely focused on women (it's more focused on womens issues, but most fems don't ignore men's issues), most feminists do not view men as inferior.

Feminists are mostly proponents of that people a. shouldn't judge based on gender and b. aren't limited by their biology. Thanks to feminists, sexism and rape are despised, pay diff. and legal discrim. are illegal, sex is much less taboo, the patriachy is gone and now women don't obey husbands or fathers, among many others. Now to the dark side. An new feminist ideology has emerged, not focusing on places that need feminism, like Iran where women's rights are in the dark ages, they instead focus on people's free speech first world countries. These feminists focus on a very vauge patriachy, and rape culture, and use it as an escuse to control people's speech. Remeber that it is a diverse label and you should be fine.
Past:
Feminist & feminism supporters: "we want the right to vote and equal pay!"
Man #1: "I'm too poor to care"
Man #2: "you crazy woman"
Man #3: "This cannot happen. If you seccede then I can't keep paying you a dime a week to make clothes in my factory"
Now:
Man asks a girl out, she says fuck you loser, man calls her a bitch
Nearby Feminist: "YOU USED A GENDERED SLUR, YOU MISOGYNISTIC BASTARD, YOU CONTRIBUTE TO RAPE CULTURE"
