    Feminist = someone who thinks women should be equal.

    Are you therefore a feminist? Please vote in poll.

    Is that what it means? I thought it was an institute for women with extreme leg hair and no knowledge of how to cook.

    Damn, do I feel silly.

    What about you, Fishkin? Are you a feminist?

    By the way, thanks for not defining feminist as "random YouTube woman that thinks all men are rapists and thinks skyscrapers are oppressive because they appear phallic".

    You'd be genuinely surprised by how many people legitimately think that.

    Not gonna say i am a feminist but i do believe it should be equal.

    But feminism and feminazism are usually mistaken though.

    Poll needs an "Other" option too.

    Because if you put it like that and we take into account that definition only, sure, i'm a feminist. But when i see what some extreme feminists do under the flag of feminism, than i'm clearly not one of them and i cannot be a bigger meninist in those cases. :)

    I am a feminist in the sense that I think men and women should be equal.
    I am not a feminist in the sense that I agree with the inaccurate, misleading statistics and dogma that is perpetrated by the modern feminist movement.

    I think to be a feminist you have to really believe in the movement and understand the roots of feminism. So based on that I answered no.

    I do believe in equality not just for women but for everyone.

    Having said that, I don't agree with all aspects of it.

    Sadly a lot of the feminists think that hating men and not taking care of their children is feminism.

    ^Equality, right?​

    Be a civil engineer, be an electrical engineer, join the military, be a freaking Navy SEAL while you're at it... that is women empowerment. Running around topless in the streets is not.

    Agreed. My motto, especially towards modern feminism is "extremists ruin everything". There are very few pop-culture feminists today that aren't just man-haters masquerading under the guise of "feminism" and "social progress".

    But again, it's like that with everything. Extremists always ruin everything *cough* *cough* religionpoliticsandothercontroversialissues *cough* *cough*

    Feminists aren't that rare. I've slept with at least 10 now and they are insane between the sheets. In a good and bad way.

    My most successful pickup lines for feminists:

    * You're clearly a strong, independent woman. Can you come change my flat tyre for me?

    * Women should be able to hit on any man they like for wild, uninhibited, commitment free sex without being called a slut but most are too intimidated. You look like someone who doesn't conform to social pressure.

    * A woman's body is a miraculous thing. I wish I could give birth.

    * Too many women are ruled by their emotions. Feminists are just more evolved, they view sex as a mindless animalistic act leading to an incredible orgasm and I'll do anything I can to support your view.

    There are actually several subsets of feminism, although the two you often see being ridiculed are socialist and radical feminism.
    There are two innocuous subsets called cultural and eco feminism that don't live up to those negative stereotypes, with the former promoting some ideologies I could agree with.

    Feminism was born because women want all the privileges of being a man (career, respect in society, etc...) but they don't want to give up on the privileges they naturally have as a woman (depending on how beautifull she is she will have many many advantages). Soo feminsts do not aim equality, they want to get more privileges and don't want to give up on any.


    An there are those feminists who are fat and ugly and want not to be judjed on beauty. That's just my 2c thi

    Okay @Apricot this has been fun, but we all see the direction this is going very quickly...

    :(

    Why

    Why can't we just have an adult discussion about social equality
