why you being so PC person198?
I think we should call it Egalitarianism. look it up on Wikipedia.
if women are given preferential treatment that isn't progressive. it's just role reversal. giving one gender preferential treatment isn't progress, it's regression. that is exactly what feminism is supposed to be trying to stop.
Any civilization that treats it's women with respect is more progressive. So no issues if women are given preferential treatment.
While I am fully aware that there are factions within feminism that this would be accurate for, what actions lead you to conclude that feminism as a whole is not about gender equality?
From what I've seen, feminism is not for gender equality so I feel that the name is quite suiting.
It's more like we are supporting a group of people who are being treated unfairly and deserve equal rights.
Like Dave said, there are extremist, but the movement itself isn't negative.
To believe that men and women are equal right now in all countries, is to live in ignorance of the truth and undermind human rights.
You guys act like females never got in trouble and your living miserable lives. Like stop lol
Feminism does still exist and continues to be necessary in America today. Just like any other movement, there are fanatics who take it too far, but that doesn't change the necessity of fixing the problems that still exist.
Why should a movement change its name? What difference would it really make what the name was? A rose by any other name...
that's exactly the point I'm making, people misunderstand the word, and so their are a lot of feminists that are actually sexists, giving feminism a bad name
Well feminism doesn't exist in America any more. Only man hating.
