    This facile dictionary definition argument just will not die, will it. You know full well how much baggage the term has. You know full well that words change over time. You know full well that the feminist movement is so much more complex and convoluted than the notion of gender equality.
    The feminist movement for the most part does support the one key issue of gender equality, there's just a few people, like the one who wrote this buzzfeed quiz, and other tumblr "feminists" who want to try and ruin the name of feminism into something that supports women as greater than men, not equal. This minority shouts louder. I believe this minority is also the reason some people wont associate themselves with the feminist movement, when in fact, all you need to do is support gender equality.
