    Are you a male feminist?

    Yeah that all makes good sense.

    It's just a shame that 'feminism' has been so badly tainted by these groups of extremist women who call for the most ludicrous and absurd measures to be taken to narrow gender difference. Most famous feminists we can all name fit into this group too.

    As far as feminism means the belief that women and men should have equal opportunities and have decisions made about them on an individual level rather than because of their gender and yadda yadda yadda, I'd consider myself a feminist. I'd also consider myself a masculist because, by the same token, they essentially do (or should) have the same definition.

    This, but I prefer to go by the catchier term: egalitarian.

    This way I avoid all the negative connotations the term "feminist" has garnered over the years due to the male hating section.
