    Because I believe that we are in fact, different. Why would I want to be equal to a man? I'm not a man. And saying that women are equal to men suggests that women are less otherwise. We are designed and programmed differently, for different tasks (evolution-wise). There are jobs that we can both do with the same efficiency, and there are ones that suit better one sex or another.

    You spelt it wrong, it's 'feminazis', and yes but unfortunately it looks like we're about to delve into a very dark future of feminazism.

    Most feminists in this country tend to be white European or white British. Avoid those groups and you're good.

    Equal doesn't mean identical. And the whole point is that our ideas of what constitutes a man or a woman are flawed and harmful

    Typically speaking, yes men and women are different biologically. But a major point of feminism is that this should not be something that resigns women to certain aspects of society. For starters women can be strong, something considered to be a masculine trait, and in the case where a strong woman wants to do a physical job (firefighter, military etc.) she should be allowed to do so. This is what feminism is about. Equal in opportunity.

    Some reject the name but the majority of women are behind the core beliefs even if they do not realise it.

    Yes, no opposing view to yours could possibly have any merit to it, and anyone prescribing to it must just be ignorant. What an enlightened point of view.

    Exactly. And as well as letting women be strong, it is also letting men be emotional. It should be alright for men to cry or to take work within traditionally female workspaces - like fashion or nursing. It is not about being identical, as RobML said, it is about being given the opportunity and seen upon as equal both socially, economically and politically. Being a women and not believe in your own rights to be equal to men is very sad.

    There is a difference between a feminist and a bile spewing feminazi.

    What is with this obsession that feminists have with knowing who and who isn't a feminist? Who cares? Let women believe what they want to believe, isn't that what your movement is about anyway?

    I'm simply #HeForShe, not a feminist. Social constructs place negative pressure on both men and women, it's a two way street.

    Thankfully, yes.

    And within feminism, there are many branches.

    There are plenty of non-feminists. The reason for that is primarily the fact that feminism currently portrays a very violent image of a woman, and that is not always so appealing. Naturally, though, as previously stated, most women do realise what their actual rights are, and will support them without necessarily being 'feminists'.
