The radical notion that women are people too.
Feminism: the right to vote, work, study, own property, have freedom of movement, be free of sexual harassment - for ALL adults.

1. The practice and/or idea that women and men are equal.
Mary shrugged off the stereotype of the man-hating feminist and embraced FEMINISM when she realized that it could potentially help her receive higher pay at work and aid her in countless other areas of her life.

A movement or social philosophy that advocates legal, social, and economic equality for women. Contrary to the beliefs of some misguided individuals, it derives no particular pleasure from the genital-related misfortunes of men, being rather preoccupied with such frivolous goals as getting paid the same goddamned money for doing the same goddamned work, not being forced to have babies, and not having to put up with shit from the entertainment, advertising and fashion industries that have a vested interest in making sure women hate their bodies.
"Feminism is a benevolent force that aids in providing the best opportunities for all members of society, and anyone who believes otherwise is a paranoid, reactionary fuckwit."

A view that treating men and women equally must involve man-hating given the universality of women hating by men who'd vote for this definition.
If feminism is where women have all the power, why do men have all the Presidency?

Feminism is a broad subject with many valid definitions. Among them the most popular and widely accepted is that it is the radical notion:

"that women are in fact human beings with the same basic human rights and needs for self fullfillment as men."

A definition that might seem flat and dumb to the less educated masses who might not consider the short historic period this has been an accepted idea. (some are still arguing.)

There are many challenges yet to conquer for the modern feminist, you need only take a look at the other definitions offered at this very site to get a general feeling for the hassle and dicrimination a woman or man feminist might encounter daily.
Next time ignorant suckers bemoan the fact that they no longer have the legal responcibility of the woman they choose to mary, the fact that they no longer have to fear getting a girl pregnant each time they have sex and the fact that they can afford the newest wide screen tv because their significant other was able to chip in cause she's like getting payed soon to be eaqually at her job. Take a time to think about what feminism gave you for free while you was busy scratching your balls and feeling underprivileged.

This word seems to set off a highly reactive defence mechanism in men whereby they express great hatred-fuelled statements against women. This reaction is rooted in man’s greatest fear and insecurity about the size of his dick. The hatred expressed is in inverse proportion to his dick size and tries to express his undeserved sense of superiority.

Most wars are started by men and much of the hatred and negativity in the world is due to this testosterone related need to dominate and control. Testoserone seems to neutralise any positive feelings towards his fellow woman (human being).

The examples of the voting for and against the definitions listed are proof that feminism needs to thrive even more in this world. It stands for justice, humanity, equality, love and peace.

If you aren’t for those things, you aren’t really human, and if you aren’t a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem. But thankfully, there are some normal men out there too. Oh well, I guess it’s true that men have a brain and it’s not in their heads. .
"oops you said 'get down on your knees and prove my adoration?' I thought you said to do you a castration. Damn... my hearing isn't what it used to be since you gave me that beating to the head for your dinner being 2 minutes late". "Oh well it was too weeny to matter anyway.. can't even see the diffence...get over it."
