That's egalitarianism. Feminism's own name is derived to mean for women. At one point before anytime recently it was about equality. Now its blaming all their problems on the "patriarchy". Feminism is "women need more because we is oppressed." They used ENTIRELY one sided statistics and lose of sense of rational thought over rape cases in courts. To hell with "innocent until proven guilty, she f**king said he did it." This was especially evident in the frat rape incident. There was A: No evidence and B: Inconsistencies in here story. A much better name would Feminazism. They blame all problems on one group and say to hell with due process. Sweep feminism into the dustbin of history.
@preploukus I agree that many 'femminist' values have been warped and twisted into a bias towards women. The real meaning of feminism, or at least what it means to me and I hope, many others, has been lost and it saddens me deeply. Feminism should mean gender equality and lots of people believe this however it is mistaken for female domination which is understandable. I call myself a feminist however I hate the name. It is gender bias to females which is ironic in itself for what we are meant to believe in. We need as a society a proper and genuine cause for gender equality instead of 'whiney bitches who won't make a sandwich'.
Any feminist I've spoken to has stated that she is for equality while speaking about something that that is extremely gender bias
