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"

Feminism is

Feminism is a politically correct, federally funded special interest hate group
NOW's Clearinghouse Against Fathers' Rights, The 3.9 billion dollar VAWA based on the myth that only men commit domestic violence and only women are victims, feminists claim that the VAWA is sex neutral, but then, they also claim that feminism is about equality.

The biggest disgrace to my gender.

Feminism used to be about women getting the same rights as men, such as the right to vote and equal pay at work.
Now feminism is a movement full of women who seem to think that their ability to push a baby out of their vagina entitles them to bigger and better everything.
I am a young woman and I disagree with feminism.
It is pretty hypocritical to expect to be treated special because you are a female (such as tighter laws concerning rape or more leniancy if a woman becomes pregnant) yet they get upset when they aren't being treated exactly like a man. The feminists need to realize that women are not better than men. They are EQUAL. You don't see any laws that provide special treatment for men do you?

Example: Once I saw a feminist say that abortions should be legal AND be free. I am all for abortion rights, but demanding that it be free because your ass couldn't use the proper birth control before spreading your legs is absured.

And before you pull the rape card on me, keep in mind that if you go to the hospital after being raped, they give you medications to prevent pregnancy. I see no reason for free abortions.

Used to be all about getting women the rights that every man had, like voting, and driving and now, it's backfired like all holy hell.

Rather than being about equality between the sexes, it is all about what concessions can we get women so that way men have to go out of their way to treat them different, rather than equals.

Now it is equal to Nazism in it's zealous pursuit to destroy all that is manly such as lumberjacks and beef jerky by making them politically correct, such as lumberperson and cured beef.
Feminist-"who cares that the movement is nothing but reverse discrimination, as long as my daughter gets more oppurtunities than my son"
Me-"And thats why Feminism is good?!? You know who else tried shit like this? Hitler, that's who..."

Feminism is the radical notion that men are not people.

Feminism dehumanizes men for political gain. Here are some examples from leading feminists in their own words:

"Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a maximum security prison, except for the imminent threat of release."

Germaine Greer.

"All men are rapists and that's all they are."

Marilyn French, Author; (later, advisor to Al Gore's Presidential Campaign.)

'To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he's a machine, a walking dildo." Scum Manifesto. (Valerie Solanas)

"All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman." Catherine MacKinnon (inventor of the sexual harassment paradigm, prominent legal feminist scholar; University of Michigan, & Yale.)

"I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He's just incapable of it." Former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.

"MALE:...represents a variant of or deviation from the category of female. The first males were mutants...the male sex represents a degeneration and deformity of the female. MAN:...an obsolete life form... an ordinary creature who needs to be watched...a contradictory baby-man..." A feminist Dictionary; ed. Kramarae and Triechler, Pandora Press, 1985:
Typical feminist: "Men tend to be more violent because of their testosterone-fueled macho tendencies. But feminism is against sexism"
