Some women do protest and disrupt events aimed at addressing men's issues, but that shouldn't paint all feminists with the same brush. The majority of feminists really do believe in equality. The problem is the very vocal minority who give the rest a bad name.

However, Feminists protest when men get togather and discuss issues that face them, Like divorce law, child custody, and prison sentances. However most of these are them screaming that they agree that men deal with these issues. but instead of produtfully trying to aid or unify they stll tare them down. ( University of Teronto). however this is the radical neofeminism, not equallty. and call it feminism or egalitarianism, if you're truly fighting for equality, you're fighting for whats right.

I agree about the name, but it is hard to rename an entire movement without losing most of the followers. Real feminists are still fighting for equality and do sometimes fight for men's rights too (parental leave for example).

Agreed. however I prefer egalitarianism to feminism. that small syllable has made the whole movement isolated to mens issues and voice

True feminism yes because there are still sexism practices and there are still problems. That said, hating men and blaming everything on the patriarchy is not true feminism. Real feminists look for equality, not blame all their problems on the evil men.
