Yep, that's it exactly. Not.

There were these people, yes. So?

Feminist =/= feminazi.
But I have a hunch you think all women are the latter. Amirite?

The term "feminist" carries a depressing amount of stigma with it nowadays. I know lots of people on forums like the Escapist who maintain that they are for equal rights (they don't appear to be lying) "and feminists are not".
When did this happen?

All extremists seem to use the same rationalization for hating the other site, they pick the worst of a group - may it be ethnic, racial, political. religious, geographical or philosophical (yes, some philosophers - established ones - can be batshit crazy too) and use that as a base to smear the entire group. Most of them take up redifining the terms by which the other group identifies itself and change the definition of that term.
This is a perfect example of this happening.
History has disproven those claiming that women are inferior to men, so, not to call themselves feminists, they qucikly change around the definition of the word. And that's the core problem why extremists are extremists and what makes us call them extremists - they don't see that they were wrong and sure as hell can't admit they were wrong.

Damn, you punched that straw woman you made, right out of the ring.

Um yeah, no.

Inventening your own definitions is stupid, you unripe onion.

Insightful, accurate observation.
You win two Internets.

"it's also used as a defense for some women to get away with stuff other people normally wouldn't put up with. "

Feminism =/= female supremacy. End of story.
12/6/2012 6:58:26 AM
You're confusing the ideology with the loud, obnoxious minority. Feminists generally just want equality. It's the radical ones that want more power than men. Just like Republicans want to cut spending. It's the radical Teabaggers that want to stop the government entirely.
12/6/2012 7:04:16 AM
Uh, that's like saying the abolitionists were really for slaves becoming the masters instead of just wanting them to become free citizens. So, no.
12/6/2012 7:49:33 AM
No, Gigabutt-guy, Feminists want gender equality. Pick up a dictionary, dumbass.
12/6/2012 7:52:14 AM
Just a fairly common misconception, nothing really hateful stupid...

"Feminists are for female gender superiority"
Stop it gaylor(d), you're turning me on.
"As if females can do no wrong"
Well, speaking as a man myself, compared to you inferior subhuman misogynists, they can't.

The Crimson Ghost
I am quite female, quite a feminist & quite for equality. Nothing more, nothing less.
12/6/2012 9:24:44 AM
If yo ass want gender equalitizzle yo ass aint a gangbangin' feminist. Feministz is fo' female gender supaioritizzle, n' itz also used as a thugged-out defense fo' some dem hoes ta git away wit shiznit other gangstas normally wouldn't put up with.
As if dem hoes can do no wrong.
12/6/2012 9:25:47 AM
Stop trying to redefine feminism to fit your hateful viewpoint.
12/6/2012 9:48:33 AM
If you want female gender superiority, you're not a feminist. Feminists want gender equality. Hey! Who knows more about feminism; a feminist or a misogynist?
Wonder what Mr Gaylor means with "get away with stuff other people normally wouldn't put up with"?
Of course females can do wrong, we're just normal human beings, and human beings do wrong all the time; "Errare Humanum Est". That's sort of the whole point; women are normal human beings, not some oddity or minority, neither precious flowers nor stupid servants.
12/6/2012 10:18:56 AM
He's not wrong, a lot of modern "feminists" are essentially just women supremacists. That's nothing against actual feminists, but a lot of so-called "feminists" do exactly as the OP says.
12/6/2012 10:43:00 AM
This is actually a pretty sad example as to how feminism's own inability to police its fringe elements has prevented it from attaining the appeal of people who would otherwise support it.
