    I support gender equality so I'm not a feminist. Couldn't vote because theres no option for me.
    So what you're saying is you don't know what feminism is? Ah, okay.

    Phew, the egalitarians are winning. Thanks TSR. Faith in humanity restored. Here's a nice egalitarian channel, with... a lot of feminazi and liberal, neoprogressivist bashing: https://www.youtube.com/user/SargonofAkkad100

    I personally think that men and women have different roles, but they are still equal.

    Of course - who doesn't support gender equality? It's the 21st century.

    But not a radical feminist. Those peeps just go too far.

    I hate when poll options are worded so that I can't tick any of them.

    Is there anything wrong with 'yes' and 'no' as answers?

    The fact that there's an option in the poll that says "I believe in equal rights for men and women" (which I voted for) has been overlooked by many is very telling that feminism, for many, clearly isn't about equal rights. They've practically looked at the equal rights option and thought "no, I don't support equal rights, I think women should be first class citizens while men should be second class". As a man, I can't support such a movement.

    The term "egalitarian" doesn't quite have a ring to it, so perhaps that's why people chose feminism.

    They can dress it up as equal rights all they like, but a lot of them aren't smart enough to keep their real intentions hidden

    Its all well and good preaching 'equal' rights but as soon as it starts turning in their favour so to speak, no way

    Does sound a bit like you possess a keen interest in eagles on first read. Why not just use the term "equalitarian" which according to the dictionary is an alternative term and just sounds and fits better.

    Sounds too much like "equestrian", which itself brings to mind bronies. No one wants to be a brony.

    Why does it matter whether it's called egalitarianism or feminism? It's the same thing so why is there an argument? Seriously who cares.
