Noun. A person holding an attitude or philosophy in opposition to some or all feminist philosophy. Like feminism, this can describe a broad range of ideas, which we shall attempt to divide into 3 groupings.

Type 1) Egalitarian Anti-feminist. A person who believes in equality between sexes, but does not believe that Feminist philosophy shares those ideals. A person who objects to the idea that females are inherently superior.

Type 2) Natural Anti-feminist. A person who believes that the sexes are divided into various areas of competence, either by God or by nature, and that when a person of one sex steps outside the role of their designated sex, it results in either unhappiness or negative productivity.

Type 3) Misogynistic Anti-feminist. One who believes that women are inferior and ought to be under the leadership of or in service to males.
1) Upon seeing a bumper sticker that states "End violence against women!", a Type 1) Egalitarian Anti-feminist might think: "Why JUST women? Why not end violence altogether? Why should men be of lesser value?"

2)Upon seeing a bumper sticker that states "End violence against women!", a Type 2) Natural Anti-feminist might think:

"Yes. That is among the proper roles of a male; to protect and defend women. Women are not as biologically equipped to do that, and they need men for that purpose"

3) Upon seeing a bumper sticker that states "End violence against women!", a Type 3) Misogynist Anti-feminist might think:

"No. If you don't beat women from time to time, they get uppity. Women don't respect men who will not conquer them; that is why women go back to spouse abusers, but cuckold simps."

A person who, despite knowing that:

-women would not be able to vote if it wasn't for feminism
-women would not be able to go to school if it wasn't for feminism
-women would not even be literate if it wasn't for feminism

still rejects feminism altogether, because of some petty thing that a modern feminist said.
Crazy Modern Feminist: "Rawr, I am a feminist! Men are all pigs!"
Anti-feminist: "Wow if that's what feminism is, I am against it."
Me: "Wait, no just because that crazy lady calls herself a feminist, doesn't mean that that is what feminism is! You shouldn't shit on the movement all together, because in reality feminism is much more chill and rational. If it wasn't for feminism me and your mom and your future daughters wouldn't even be able to go to college. I really hope you read some history books and reconsider for the sake of humanity."

A realist. Someone who realizes men and women are not created equal and social expectations of men and woman evolve from simple biological truths. This is opposed to a feminist, who lives in a fantasy land where men and women are exactly the same and should be treated as such.

Antifeminists do not wish for woman to be "enslaved". This is an appeal to fear by many prominent feminist who would like to ignore the fact that men are expected by traditional society to do certain things we may not find pleasent either - such as go to war, work at a job we don't like, etc.

Rather, antifeminists wish to reduce the harm caused by feminists which has perverted the natural order of gender relations (which is largely a cultural universal) in favor of a plastic, manufactured society not based in reality. This type of society has lead to a gradual erosion of woman's happiness since the 1950's.
Feminist: Why should I be treated different from you just because you have a penis!!!
Antifeminist: There are more differences between men and women than that. Look at upper body strength, different cognitive functioning, pitch of the voice, The skeletal, respiratory, and muscular system, reproduction...
Feminist: aha! You just want to make me into a baby-making machine!!! You want to roll back society to the 50's!!!!
Antifeminist: well, studies show women were much happier in the 50's...
Feminist: So! I'd rather be miserable and free than happy and enslaved!!!!
Antifeminist: i'm not trying to enslave you...
Feminist: Yes, you said so!!!

A sexist person who believes that women and men should not have equality. They make posts about feminists hating men, while that is a sexist. These disgusting cunts actually believe that gender equality is not in a woman's civil rights.
Woman: I got raped the other day and I was told that it was my fault.
Anti-feminist: How could you spread lies? Women are men's toys. God made Eve from Adam because he wanted children, not because Eve should go out proclaiming equal rights! Women are men's property like Eve was Adam's.

Women and men who reject equality in pay, in the work place, and in the military based on biological differences, and in many cases based on religious doctrine

"Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream." - Rush Limbaugh

"Women's liberation is just a lot of foolishness. It's men who are discriminated against. They can't bear children. And no one is likely to do anything about that." - Golda Meir

"My analysis is that the gays are about 5% of the attack on marriage in this country, and the feminists are about 95%." - Phyllis Schlafly

"This is what sexual liberation chiefly accomplishes-it liberates young women to pursue married men." - George Gilder

"We must not allow ourselves to be deflected by the feminists who are anxious to force us to regard the two sexes as completely equal in position and worth." - Sigmund Freud

"Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." - Pat Robertson

"Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men - that's their problem." - Jerry Falwell
Antifeminists are at war with human rights and rational thinking.
