1. the advocation of social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.
2. an organized movement for the attainment of such rights for women.

A response to sexism, which is also known as an institutional barrier within a society that systematically prohibits women from gaining equal status to men.

While humanism may be the equal rights for both men and women, feminism is also significant because women have been historically and cross-culturally subject to being of lesser status than men. Because patriarchy is such a prevalent form of social organization, and because by its very definition it relegates women as less than equal when compared to men, as long as patriarchy exists, feminism exists by necessity.

COMMON MYTHS:
1. Men can't be feminists.
FALSE. Both men and women can support equal rights for women.
2. All feminists are men-haters.
FALSE. Feminists do not necessarily hate men; in fact, most don't.
Feminism exists because women are systematically and institutionally prejudiced against; it is not the result of one person's or one generation's choices, but because society has set women up to equate to less from the start.

A word made to accelerate the rights of women over men, commonly used in the early 20th century to equalize gender opportunities, such as voting and work rights. Commonly used by females on social media to start arguments about why women are de-moralized by statements of one male individual, or as an excuse to call males "oppressed white guys." Commonly confused with Gender Equality.
Correct usage: "Man, women cant work at McDonalds anymore. We need some feminism here so that women can have the same rights as men!"
Incorrect usage: Peter; "Hey Miranda, Why do all the girls I like date the assholes?" Miranda; "OH MY GOD PETER THATS SEXIST FUCKING DOUCHEBAG YOURE FRIENDZONED OH MY GOD FEMINISTS ASSEMBLE AND KICK THIS OPPRESSED WHITE GUYS ASSHOLE"

Feminism is a movement started by old faggot hags on their period.
Feminists strive for dominance, not equality.
"DID YOU JUST LOOK AT ME?!"
"Uh..Yeah...So?"
"YOU'RE A RAPIST! I'M CALLING THE POLICE!"
Feminism in a nutshell.

Feminism was about equality.Now (Modern Feminism) is about retarded women with no brain and no logic, bitching about everything men do and acting always like they are a victim.If you see a modern feminist you should shoot her/him immediately and make the world a better place.
Feminism is no more about equality.It is about retarded uneducated whores

The fetishization of species-wide female incompetence through reinforcement of in-group preference among females, and out-group preference among males.
Feminism is the most obvious antonym of Egalitarianism, in terms of etymology.

Feminism has a diversion of meanings
A long time ago it was meant for the rights of women, being able to vote and the ability to own land.
Very quickly, though, once the rights were gained, the feminists went to getting against using masculine pronouns to tell about a group of people that could be male or female.
Those 2 were very good examples of feminism.
Though then, feminism started becoming something different. Instead of changing "he" to "them" or alike, it was then turned into "she".
Alot of feminism was then women opposing men, women deciding that they were superior to males and they were better and more perfect in many ways.
Neither is true. Women=Humans and Men=Humans. Neither have a superiority to eachother.

From the start, it was going against sexism. Now, most feminism is becoming sexism itself.
Real feminism includes both men and women, also including myself.
I believe that men and women are equal and should not be subject to sexual descrimination.
Many of the definitions on here you may see is greatly biased, as the people for feminism only focus on the good; the thought that feminism is against all types of stereotype "ism's", and the people against, only focus on examples like Germaine Greer who is by far a fake and sexist feminist, who denounces all men to be subhuman, inferiors and rapists.

Feminism in general is a great view of humanity in my opinion, but many hurt the philosophie's reputation by turning the good
A True Feminist would say that Women and men are equal, they shouldn't be sexually torn apart in any ways
Sexist feminists would say that all gender neutral pronouns should be said using feminine pronouns
Actual example:
Sexist male: Women are shit
True feminist female: No, women are equal. Sexism is bad. Don't be like that
Another example
Sexist male: Women are shit
Sexist feminist female: No, women are the best and men are shit.
Another example
Feminism believing male: Men and women are equal
Sexist feminist female: No, women are not equal to men. Men are inferior.

A gift. Men are in a world where they are bombarded with media, largely pornography, that tells them that women are for one purpose: to look at and have sex with. Pornography is full of misogyny. Feminists want to make men human again; they want them to act like real human beings who think of women as real human beings too and not just as a package that is invisible without breast implants, a small waist, high heels...ect... Feminists see that men are raping women because pornography makes it seem like this is okay. Feminists see that pornography has integrated itself into our culture and American society so much that exercise classes consist of strip tease and 4 year olds are wearing mini-skirts. To clarify, this is one breed of feminism. Other feminists find pornography, an industry that puts women through miserable treatment and diseases, liberating. These other feminists find it liberating for women to fake orgasms and consistantly fulfill the desires of men.
Radical Feminism wants women to possess "power" consistantly through avenues other than sexuality. Radical Feminism wants to never have a woman's face covered in cum ever again.
