A person who holds that inequality exists between men and women, with women being treated as the inferior sex. American Feminists accomplished much in the 20th century, winning the write to vote, to work, and taking major steps towards total gender equality(we still aren't there, but the inequalities go both ways).

From it's very inception, there was bound to be problems down the road. If you have a ideology solely dedicated to solving the problems faced by one gender, it's going to ignore the problems faced by the opposite sex. For instance, child custody, prison sentences(women on average get 40% less prison time for equivalent crimes), cases of abuse(males being abused is seen as joke in american society), and divorce. Females in the USA hold a major edge over males in these areas, and yet I've never seen any feminists protests or even bring up any of these inequalities.

There still many places on earth where the term "patriarchy" would serve as an apt description of how women are treated. But when it comes to first world nations, especially the US, patriarchy just doesn't cut it.

One would think that any true feminist would focus on helping women in places where acid is thrown on a girl's face if she leaves home without her husband, instead of focusing on how the media "sexualizes" women, or how this movie portrays women as weak or that game portrays women as horny bimbos.

Just seems a bit silly to me.
Feminist 1: "This magazine portrays women nothing but fuck toys for the Patriarchy"

Feminist 2: " I would love to go protest the horrid living conditions of women in Iran, but that new movie came out that features a women who has sex a lot. It must be saying that all women are just sluts! We must stop the patriarchy from oppressing us!

A womyn who (ideally) wants both genders to be equal and equally treated. Feminists want prejudice between the genders to stop. Sadly, they have come to be known as viscious, man-hating extremists.
What we see-

Feminist: "Wer" was Old English for "man" and "wif" was Old English for womyn. Why have "man" and "woman" replaced them?! I want nothing to do with those pigs! Any wymyn who wear makeup, long hair, or skirts are endangering our civil rights! I want to see more men dead! Oh, and I'm proud of those who don't marry men and those who have aborted their children!

What they're meant to be-

"Feminist: Womyn want to be treated with respect and be treated equally to men whenever possible."

Ideology with many varying strands of thought. Some are genuinely noble and admirable with a sensible idealism, others are poisonous and based on a simplistic view of men.

However, the American Feminist movement has become so narrowly focused in recent years it has become a joke.

US Feminism has no working-class dimension, being dominated by middle class and Jewish women, and if anything it regards working-class women with a barely concealed contempt.
The Feminists did not condemn the exploitation of Jessica Lynch, which should have absolutley enraged them. Their behaviour towards Miss Lynch seriously weakened their already damaged credibility.

The US Feminist movement has no working-class base, making it impossible for it to achieve it's self-declared aims.
