I’m so sick of this anti-feminism bull

Feminism, at its core, is about civil rights and equality for ALL regardless of gender, race, sexuality, etc. Are there people who take it too far? Yes. Are there people who skew the definition to fit their personal needs?…

Well I’m glad you feel that it doesn’t matter how you talk to people. Good luck with your pursuits. I have no desire to continue this conversation. Enjoy your day.

First of all, I really don’t appreciate how you responded to this. You don’t know anything about the kind of activism I do. I do go out there and try and make a difference through actions, not just words.

Second, I’m not asking anti-feminists to jump on board. You don’t wanna join? Fine. But the bashing of feminism is sad and rude. And it’s the same for feminists who do it to anti-feminists. The whole thing just needs to stop.

Finally, there are good feminists out there. Just like there are good people who don’t agree with feminism. You’re missing the main point of that argument: that people are only portrayed in one light rather than showing the good and the bad.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I really didn’t appreciate how you responded. It very much felt like an attack rather than a well thought out response. You don’t have to agree with what I’m saying, but there should be respect in responses. I’m not looking for an argument, but I’m always down for an educational debate. Attacking me is not a debate. It’s an ad hominem argument that just comes across as rude.

I disagree with a lot of what you’re saying but I respect it. I just think that feminism IS humanism. It’s a movement that women started for suffrage, yes, but it has evolved since then. And I think people are just afraid. They might not wanna be associated with those “bad apples” but like I said, it’s up to us to say this is not what feminism is about. Also, feminism started as a gender issue, but it has definitely extended to include other issues (ie: race, sexuality). Also on my phone so can’t hit all your points but that’s an overall response lol

Feel free to disagree, but I honestly think the problem is more about BAD people defining themselves as Feminists: in my experience, there are so many 'female supremacists' and 'men haters' who use 'Feminism' as a means of justifying their nastiness... I think it's more a need for 'real' Feminists to say "Get lost, and stop using our name to justify being a piece of crap!" . But obviously, that is just my personal experience :)

McMelon Answer:

Oh I agree. I think that’s a really good argument and it’s something that should also be addressed when we talk about feminism as a whole.
