A very cleverly rebranded form of sexism that specifically looks out for the interests in women alone.

It is for the above reason that such a movement is a hypocrisy and should not recieve government funding. FACT.
Germaine Greer pertains to feminism. Germaine Greer is a sexist dickhole.

A radical social movement that promotes the idea that men are not people.
Feminism is the belief that men are not people.

The act of not shaving your legs.
After reading Maya Angelou, my girlfriend told me she was going to embrace feminism, so i told her to shave her pits and call me.

Feminism is a word that has done a complete about-face in it’s history as a word, which has not been long. Originated in the era of the sixties when there was a general explosion culturally in music, drug-taking, awareness of ecology, questioning of authority, and rebelling against anything that was middle-class, capitalistic, white-male dominated and anything considered to hinder personal expressions of freedom.

Women at this time fought not for very long, for the right to not be portrayed in media as sexual objects, and not to be seen only as semen receptacles for men. They wanted to be taken seriously and not judged by what they looked like, but wanted culture to embrace women of all ages as they were, not what men wanted them to be, i.e. Barbie doll obedient blonde brainless bodies.

Unfortunately, the male-dominated media quickly established the potential for this trend to cut in to market forces which used female bodies/images to sell things.

So, the media really dug it’s heels in, playing on women’s most vulnerable insecurities, perpetuating myths about feminists being sad bra-burning butt-ugly, dykes, and after a time women, rather than carry on fighting and being seen as the media-defined feminist, just decided it’s easier to give in. In the early seventies, one TV program which started the ball rolling down this brainwashing exercise was “Charlies Angels” – oh girls yes, you can fight off murderers and survive extraordinary car-chases with not one hair out of place or any makeup smudged…AND have a flat stomach 24/7/365!! Hooray! The way women gave in though to media’s pressure on feminists, in the way women are very good at, is to go into denial about the whole issue, and accept the media hype that true feminism is really about validating yourself through what you look like and what men (and other women) think of your appearance. Whole industries thrive on this factor, cosmetic surgery, fashion, diet foods, psychotherapy, make-up, blah blah.

Women today are not only accepting this new definition, they are embracing it one hundred percent, emulating the likes of the original Barbie wannabe, Pammy A, Victoria Silvstedt etc (there are now just too fuckin many to mention). They are also bandying about the psychobabble term “body-image issues” accusing each other of bowing to media pressure, when in fact it’s no wonder that most women DO have issues around body-image. This is just another way of getting women to compete with each other and “keep them down”. Vast amounts of energy and money are spent on “shopping til you drop”, enhancing or re-defining bits of their bodies that don’t quite measure up to whoever or whatever the media is defining as “perfection”, learning how to lap-dance for their man, and this is all called “empowerment”, freedom and oh such fun! Really, it’s just another form of sexual slavery. Side-note: it is proven than women still earn less than men so where do they get the money? One interesting spin-off of this is that the BigBrother contestant Nadia (UK), who is a trans-sexual, paid for her boob job by being a prostitute. No one batted an eye-lid here about this. Perhaps it’s because she did it as a man, not a woman. Hmmm.

So to summarise, feminism originally meant freedom from being bound by male-dominated rules of sexual objectification, but today means just the opposite. To get anywhere as a woman, all along it’s been the same old story, it’s just been re-packaged and sold back to women where they are now not only the product, but the consumer. Wake up ladies.
OK I'll spend a fortune looking like your ultimate whore, but don't expect it for free....in fact, expect it to be very expensive. Alright? Cool.

The belief that women are (or should be considered as)either entirely equal or superior to men in intelligence, physical traits, or whatever else one could come up with. Okay, look, there's some interesting things to consider when it comes to how women and men are treated in society. It is surprising how some feminists use social injustices done to them in the past to justify their superiority. Of course women should be considered equal when it comes to value of life or starting wages (let the quality of work speak for itself, not gender you big business losers). Women should be able to be independant and make their own choices and let them BE HEARD. But, come on ladies, the feminazis and female chauvinists out there, let's not controdict ourselves here! You say that men being superior to women is wrong (true); people generally have the idea that women being raped or abused is totally wrong (which is totally true because it's HORRIBLE and WRONG and rapists deserve to GO TO HELL AND BURN). But pain is pain and inferiority is inferiority no matter who experiences it; some are men, some are women, but we all are human. People who are willing to do the very thing they loathe (such as forcing the opposite gender into inferiority) is no better than the people who did it to them first. When a women is abused by a man, we say "leave that bastard." When a man is abused by a woman, we sympathize with the woman, who usually complains of angry girl disease or something. Who holds the door for whom? That's right, men hold the door, pull out the chair, and places their coats over puddles for women. Yes, some men are total jerks, but some women are too. Women can rape and objectify men just like men can rape and objectify women. Women have their strengths and weaknesses just like men do. Women weren't built to be superior or equal (in every way) as men, and men weren't built to be superior or equal (in every way) as women. It's not about equality (what a crappy world it would be if everyone was the same), it's about balance. Why not embrace the things that make you YOU, with gender playing the role as gender only (I know, way too optimistic to be true but we can try, can't we)? Why not work on creating a world where people can be respected for the things they can do than the things they can't instead of COMPLAINING about everything? Racists, sexists, antisemitists, people against homosexuals, anyone who "hates" someone for any unjustifiable reason other than "just 'cause" (most reasons are stupid enough to be just so)only create imbalance. I mean, if some traumatic experience happened to you and you can't possibly heal and not be against a certain group, well, you're still hurting too, I understand that. Still, that gives you no right to lay that hurt upon innocent people (if you are mentally capable to know what you are doing). And no, being a feminist doesn't make you a lesbian or manly or whatever; your voice should be heard too, just, tone it down and focus on solving the issues rather than making more! I know, not a definition, but neither are a lot of other entries either (check out racism)...Oh, and by the way, I am 100% WOMAN, and can be proud of it without the need to belittle men. That's why I talk so much (ha). I'm against people using inequality to justify their own horribly prejudiced actions, that's all. Oh, and look at all the subtypes of feminists before anyone insists that feminists are only women who want men and women to be treated equal. Feminists are individuals with individual minds, you know. Don't use bias to support bias, please. It doesn't convince anyone but the insane and maybe your mother.
Consider the many forms of feminism: Amazon, Anarchist, Black, Chicana, Christian, Cultural, Difference, Eco, Equity, Equality, Fat, Gender, Individualist, Islamic, Jewish, Lesbian, Liberal, Marxist, Modern, New, Postmodern, Pro-life, Radical, Religious, Separatist, Sex-positive, Social, Socialist, Trans, Womanism. Not all forms or uses of feminism is justifiable. Feminism is necessary as a social movement but can be just as damaging once a group of mental or ignorant people misuse it.

Feminism is something practiced by certain women. They beleive women are equal to, if not superior than men, and deserve equality. But what women forget is that they are physically weaker than men, have to keep a healthy body to have children and are not drafted. The only right women should have is to choose whether to wash lights or darks first.
Male: Want to hear a joke?
Femnazi: No you male chauvisnit pig, i must go burn my bra in protest and not shave my armpits because it symbolizes something gay
Male: Feminism
Femnazi: you male pig, how dare you belittle wom--
Male slaps woman silly, makes her shave ehr legs and pits, put her bra on, shut her bitch ass mouth and cook breakfast
