No, I am most definitely not a feminist. In-fact I am very much anti.
"But you don't believe in Equality?" Actually I do, but that is not feminism. Consider that a reasonable person believes in liberty but may not wish to identify as 'libertarian', or how a person may support animal rights, but does not want to be called an 'animal right's activist'. The same is true here. Feminism is an ideology, as are most 'isms' and often entail far more than a simple disagreement/agreement of a statement, although obviously there are exceptions. In the case of feminism there is a pattern of behaviour that seems almost universal, and I think the times are gone when it can simply be described as radical. If you disagree with this, then please remember you are a hypocrite in the likely event you call 'men's right activism' a hate movement e.c.t. Anyway the political tennants of feminism tend to go something like this:
-Very left wing views, often anti-capitalist or at least socialist viewpoint.
-Encourages Hyper-sensitivity to the point that most simple jokes are some form of 'ist'
-Anti-Science paradigm, i.e that men and women are identical apart from their genitalia, and that any differences are as a result of social conditioning.
-Often vague about the distinction between equal opportunity and outcome. Sometimes touting the later to the detriment of the former
-Casual sexism/racism (ironic isn't it) , sometimes to the point where there is outright denial it is possible to be sexist against a man, racist against a white person e.c.t.
-Slactivist, Social justice type, anti-freedom type politics. Blowing all issues out of proportion, for example a women that chooses to be a model HATES herself, and anyone that buys it HATES all women. The word 'misogynist' used to mean HATE but has now been trivialised to a ridiculous degree. Sometimes this comes at the expense of actual real problems (for example the feminist T-shirts bought from a third world sweat shop).
-Bigotry against anyone that is not a feminist! Sometimes to the point that anyone with a slightly different political opinion will be shunned.
Anyway, not wanting to be associated with this sort of ideology which seems to be the norm now rather than the radical fringe, it makes sense to not want to call yourself one.
I support equality between men and women.
Feminism is still needed desperately in many countries around the world and, to some extent, even here, although I think we've reached the point in Britain when we can have general movements against things like domestic abuse and unequal salaries, instead of movements based on women's rights with these things.
There still does seem to be a slight gender pay gap (not as large as many feminists claim, though) and while I accept that women are more likely to be abused than men, I think there's a lot of overlap between men and women when it comes to these issues that it makes no sense to have movements concerning these issues purely from a women's rights perspective.
I'm amazed at how much vitriol there is towards feminism on the internet and elsewhere, though. People appear to be judging the idea based on some of its more radical adherents, which is just silly. There's an awful lot of hatred towards feminists in general and I often encounter people being casually sexist in order to annoy feminists, which, again, is just infantile.
I believe in equality, whether that makes me a feminist would be open to debate. Where I disagree with some feminists is that I am wanting the position of women to be equal, as better for all, not hating men.
