    Considering how you probably oppose men judging women on their weight would you date a short guy?

    What do you feel about the role of men in feminism? I shy away from the label 'feminist', not out of disrespect for the movement, but because I'm aware it's not a black-and-white issue and I'd rather not be seen to appropriate a term and a movement for women.

    Are you the sort that believes in equality of all people regardless of gender. Or are you the sort that thinks that women are fundamentally in some way better than men?

    Alright Ill ask a legit question which I enjoy asking feminist as there is usually a very varied answer.

    As a previous poster pointed out there is some vitrol about the modern feminist movement, with that in mind why do true fighters for equality not identify themselves as Egalitarian's instead of Feminists? As being a part of the Egalitarian movment allows you to campaign for equal rights for all rather than more rights for one specific group.

    This article, written by a guy, sums up a few of my thoughts on the issue personally.

    a feminist was originally mean to be someone who believes women and men should have equal rights, its just some people take it further. people get mistaken because the name has the 'fem' in it and assume its promoting women above men but the 'fem' is actually because men already have there rights the women are trying to get .

    Out of interest, why do you perceive it as a 'movement for women'?
