    Depends, if you mean an actual feminist that stands for equal rights then I wouldn't care.

    If you mean the average feminist that has hatred towards men in general and wants female liberties then no.
    From my personal exp, they do have equal rights actually no they have more rights within the west.

    1. Women have the right to genital integrity
    2. Women have the right to vote without agreeing to die
    3. Women have the right to choose parenthood
    4. Women have the right to be assumed caregivers for children
    5. Women have the right to call unwanted, coerced sex rape
    6. Women have more rights regarding their sexual freedom


    I seriously can't think of any regarding men, can you? if so post.

    I never know what to expect when someone tells me their a feminist.

    There is a potential they are normal people who just show some interest towards issues which may currently affect women etc. However on the other hand they could be a half-crazy man-hater who can barely string a sentence together without referring to some patriarchy they have decided exists.

    Unfortunately the amount of lunatics currently supporting feminism its probably a 50/50.

    Nah. I'd rather wife someone a few tiers above a doormat. I mean, I'm sure submissive feminists can exist in principle, but in reality, the type of woman who identifies as a feminist would probably want to be an "equal" in our relationship. HA. As if. I would NEVAH.

    I don't want to marry but I would prefer being with someone who supports gender equality, whether they're feminist or not.

    Definitely wouldn't want to be with someone who identifies as anti-feminist though.

    So kindly remind me of the last time a group of feminists rallied in support of extending prison sentences for women? Or to increase mental health and suicide awareness for men? Or to increase workplace safety for men? Or to spend more money on research for male dominated diseases and cancers? Or stopping domestic violence against men?

    I can't recall such a thing ever happening in the history of humankind
    Given you appear quite enthusiastic about potentially knocking a hypothetical girlfriend's jaw clean off it wouldn't seem sensible for you to encourage protests against domestic violence full stop.

    Didn't vote because I don't mind. As long as it wasn't a major part of their life either way I'd be fine. If they were over the top feminist or anti feminist that would get really annoying quite quickly

    It depends what sort feminist as feminism is very broad. There are all sorts of feminists like liberal, Marxists and radical. Liberals I guess are more laid back because they believe things are getting better through laws, changes in social attitudes and more equal socialisation of both sexes. Unlike Marxists and radical feminists they dont want a far reached revolutionary change....and they aren't men hating.

    What you're describing is an egalitarian not a feminist. Feminist only focusses on women's rights.
    are u socially conservative?

    as in

    gender roles
    class system
    strong military
    monarchy and family values

    ur kind of not in line with the times

    Any man who believes the feminist propaganda and identifies as a feminist should hand in his testicles imo.

    I wonder, has anyone conducted a study regarding i.q and feminism? I'd put money on there being a link between low i.q and being a feminist. I mean, you have to be either stupid or delusional to believe things like "1 in 4 women are raped" or that women are "oppressed" in the 1st world.
