A feminist is the bravest and most honourable person (man or woman) out there who has the guts to stand up to all the irrational, MANIC HATE that every single man on this site expresses toward women.
Please read the entries and you will realize how much women are hated by men and how much we need feminism. And you will be genuinely afraid. Who are these people?
Equality is more that being equal under the law. We will have true equality when
- men are encouraged to have a bikini wax twice a month (200 US Dollars), legs and armpits as well please
- men have to wear high heels that mutilate their feet and skirts and tiny tops
- men are told that they are worthless if they have wrinkles and therefore have to buy anti-aging products like there’s no tomorrow
- men will be ostracized severely if they wear the same piece of clothing twice
- beautiful men marry ugly women as frequently as beautiful women marry ugly men
- men take the last names of their wives as frequently as women do
- “pussy” and “cunt” are no longer used as insults
- men and women split the household chores and the “bringing up kids” duties evenly
- women no longer get paid less for the same work
- 95 % of domestic and sexual violence are no longer committed by men against women
- … The list could go on forever
There is no equality, not even in the Western world. If you are a fair person (man or woman) you will agree and try to make this world a better place for EVERYONE. Men and women.
Jason: I am a feminist.
Redeck #1: Boooooooo Hoooooooo Let's kill him, boys!!!!!
Nomal person: Wow Jason, you have balls to risk the wrath of every hick out there!
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.
A straight male who doesnt express enthusasium towards chauvinistic remarks
Your buddy is such a FEMINIST , he doesnt show any interest when we go on with chauvinist jokes .
A person who is feared and hence defamed and discredited by jocks, frat boys and men of inferior intelligence and/or sexual prowess.
Bob the III: Dude, did you see this chick at our frat party? Smokin hot, riiight?
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!
