A movement to promote equality and fight oppression. That it does so at the expense of male power and privilege is a result of patriarchy, not feminism.
Feminism allows you to look at the world in a new light.

A view that treating men and women equally must involve man-hating given the universality of women hating by men who'd vote for this definition.
If feminism is where women have all the power, why do men have all the Presidency?

simply put, the notion that men and women are equal. feminism does not call for hating men, in fact, it abhors it. it is a call for human equality, regardless of race, age, and especially gender.
"I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute." ~Rebecca West

This word seems to set off a highly reactive defence mechanism in men whereby they express great hatred-fuelled statements against women. This reaction is rooted in man’s greatest fear and insecurity about the size of his dick. The hatred expressed is in inverse proportion to his dick size and tries to express his undeserved sense of superiority.

Most wars are started by men and much of the hatred and negativity in the world is due to this testosterone related need to dominate and control. Testoserone seems to neutralise any positive feelings towards his fellow woman (human being).

The examples of the voting for and against the definitions listed are proof that feminism needs to thrive even more in this world. It stands for justice, humanity, equality, love and peace.

If you aren’t for those things, you aren’t really human, and if you aren’t a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem. But thankfully, there are some normal men out there too. Oh well, I guess it’s true that men have a brain and it’s not in their heads. .
"oops you said 'get down on your knees and prove my adoration?' I thought you said to do you a castration. Damn... my hearing isn't what it used to be since you gave me that beating to the head for your dinner being 2 minutes late". "Oh well it was too weeny to matter anyway.. can't even see the diffence...get over it."

Feminism is the belief system that women and men are equal.
While the stereotype of cuttroat feminists is still burned into the minds of the close-minded (see the other definitions for feminism)it is only a derogatory stereotype used primarily by the ignorant. Feminism is believeing that women deserve the same rights, respect, and chances as men.
Quotes demonstrating my definition:

Real definition of Feminism:
"Feminism is the radical notion that women are human beings"
-Cheris Kramerae, author of A Feminist Dictionary, 1996.

Stereotype:
"Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians"
-Rev. Pat Robertson,
1992 Republican Convention

*Sigh* This is getting out of hand. Feminism is the idea that everyone is equal, plain and simple. Feminists are not 'ugly dykes' and are not 'the epitome of perfection'. Women who hate men are *not* feminists. Jeez, you all need to cool it.
Gloria Steinem was a feminist.
Virginia Woolfe was a feminist.
That chick at the bar who calls all men rapists was not a feminist.
