Women or men who believe that women should be treated equally as men. The problem with that, is it usually ends there - that is, feminists wouldn't give a fuck about it being the other way around (men being equally treated as women) to add to that, it usually isn't about having equality, its about having MORE. Also, if equal treatment is requested, then apparently feminists want to pay the bill and open the door for a man now. Oh wait, they probably don't - its equal, yet unequal treatment I guess. Makes plenty of sense.
Now, to address the stupid people who have a problem with the image of women on televison... GET OVER IT. For starters, and this is a big thing, the woman accepted the job to be on the show or commercial that portrayed her as the steryotypical houswife! What the hell! So, why don't you go down and attack her for doing that? And there is an entry about feminism by an author called "lick_it_bitch" who complains that tv sitcoms use skinny, beautiful women to be companions of fat, ugly men... and the tv shows that she lists to give examples of this are: "the drew carey show, family guy, the simpsons"... WHAT THE FUCK?!? TWO OF THOSE ARE FUCKING CARTOONS AND THE OTHER ONE IS THE FUCKING DREW CAREY SHOW SHIT!
And another problem I have with feminists is the fact that they seem to think that women should be treated equal simply because they're women. Nope. Doesn't work that way pal. If some womans a stuck up pompas ass bitch, no one should f@#$ing respect her simply because she's a woman.
Okay.... this is for people like (these are the usernames of people that have submitted entries) "Lick_it_bitch" and "unachicafantastica" as well as the rest of those extreme feminists. Go fuck yourselves, its because people like you that women (one of the most beautiful things on this planet) are being oppressed and even hated. And the last thing I would like to address - lick it bitch says (among a list of things that she disapproves of) "when its no longer legal to create or sell pornography showing a woman be violently raped" you are a fucking moron really... ITS FUCKING PORN! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR GOOD OL FASHION FAMILY FUN DON'T FUCKING LOOK FOR IT IN A PORNO YOU ASSWIPE. Shit...
Most feminists drive me effing insane

someone who believes the radical notion that women are people.
if you believe that women and men should have equal rights, you are a feminist. there's nothing "extreme" about it.

A feminist is a person who believes that men and women are equal (though not necessarily the same), and should be entitled to equal rights, equal treatment, and equal opportunity.
The attainment of women's rights to vote, own property, and become leaders in business and politics are feminist victories.

A person who supports equality between the sexes. Feminists can be (and are) women, men, and transpeople. Feminists are black, white, and everything in between. Feminists are straight, gay, and bisexual. Feminists understand that inequality effects everyone.

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.
John: Lisa's a feminist? You mean a bitch, right?
Max: She just believes in equal rights, man. I'm a feminist, too.

A feminist is a person, most likely a female herself, who fights for equality as women are seen as the weaker sex. A feminist is not a man-hater, which is what some people insist they are, though they are very 'pro-girl.' Feminism has been alive right through history, as females fought for their right to vote, work and receive equal pay. The world today would be very different if feminists never took action to change laws and empower themselves.
Kate Sheppard and Kathleen Hanna were both feminists.

Anyone who can read between the lines of misogyny. And then, with grace and intelligence, acts appropriately to fight against it.
Man, have you checked out the myspace page of A Panterinha? She is fighting misogyny one blog at a time! Now she is what a feminist should look like.

Bob the III: Dude, did you see this chick at our frat party? Smokin hot, riiight?
