I am all for women's rights, but it seems modern day feminists are just taking everything overboard, and are more about man hating than they are about increasing equality for women. I think Feminists are actually giving women a bad reputation and actually hurting people's views on women / women's rights, they definitely are for me.

You shoulkd ignore what type of feminists call themselves. It's easy to tell from what they say
Sadly they do drag down the name incredibly. Some one needs to round the girls from Buzzfeed and kick them out of the band

Whinging about nonissues like the way men sit or talk isn't the best way to look like a credible cause. I'll find the source later, but more people believe in women's rights and equalities than those who identify as feminist.

There's always been idiotic whiny people supporting pretty much any cause. But now, any time a flurry of tweets are sent about some vaguely feminist issue the press jump on it. After all, nothing brings in the ad revenue quite like angry controversy, no matter how overblown it might be.

There are valid criticisms to make against feminism, but every time someone brings up the petty rubbish that the media has used to create a storm in a teacup, I cringe a little.

Feminism is a distinct ideology with a distinct theory Bash. Its theories are flawed and hate filled. The name of feminism is not dragged down by the actions of its followers alone but by feminist theory itself. This is an ideology based on, marxist, communist beliefs, on the flawed, sexist principle of 'patriarchy'; that man is privileged and woman is disadvantaged by man. Feminist theory preaches that family, the idea of a father, mother and children is wrong. It preaches that there is no such thing as human nature, man or woman, that heterosexuality is sexist, that pedophilia is natural, that men are inherently evil and this is just the tip of the ice-burg that is this warped ideology. The vast majority of people do not know anything about feminist theory besides its exoteric generalities "equality"..."choice" etc....it is the furthest thing from equality and choice.

"Feminism has nothing to do with equality, and it is not about fairness. Neither is it egalitarianism, nor is it born of the liberalism of the Enlightenment. Feminists are not interested in equality of opportunity, irrespective of race, colour, creed – or sex – principles that are universally accepted as right. Theirs is the communist-utopian definition of equality qua sameness: parity of numbers disconnected from achievement through merit and ability, and divorced from skills and attributes."

Mainstream feminism (or alternatively, white feminism) that's adopted by the likes of Tina Fey, Lena Dunham, Emma Roberts and Taylor Swift is essentially white supremacy disguised as female empowerment.

They hijacked third wave feminism from black American women and turned something that included and empowered disabled, trans, sex workers and black women into watered down, performative, #heforshe mediocrity that is benefitting only themselves and their counterparts.

I think you need to make a distinction between feminists and man haters. The two are quite different although some man haters might state they are feminists.

Most men that tend to despise feminists are weak betas that feel threatened by them.
