    if feminism was about EQUALITY, why is the word based around one gender?

    Feminism is the idea that females will one day be equal to males. Males already have too many privileges compared to women and I don't care what you say, that is fact.

    *sigh* if only feminists could debate without getting triggered. yes, in the past society was sexist, but not anymore, both genders have equal privileges, therefore feminism is obsolete, and I don't care what you say, THAT is fact.

    feminists highlight plenty of male issues such as the dangers of hyper masculinity, boys suicide rates and suppressing emotions. lots of feminists also address gender roles and allowing boys to take on traditionally "feminine" interests.

    honestly, this conversation is tired. if you don't want to be called a feminist, just get on with your day.

    You should watch the Red Pill documentary by a Feminist (who later left the movement).
    It completely shits on the false belief that males are privileged.

    Many cinemas had to ban the film including Australia because Feminists were protesting and giving bomb threats. Fr.

    Here's a review if you're interested in it:

    Feminism is called this because it was a women's movement started by women to bring women's status up in society. Early forms of feminism were not pioneered by men. While there are male feminists now, their role, typically, is to help encourage women's equality to everybody else. So feminism is a correct name.

    Stop calling feminists "feminists" and just call the people who don't support equality "sexist", then everyone who does support it "human".

    Because the movement started out being one that advocated for women's rights to be equal to men's rights. In a time when women had little to no rights, there was no reason to also advocate that men needed more rights as well, so the whole movement was called feminism because women deserved the rights men had. Whether it is focused around women still is another debate that I am not willing to have, but I digress. Why is the word MANkind based around one gender too. All words have their origins.
