    "Is feminism about gender equality?"

    No. MOST ordinary people believe in gender equality. FEW people identify as feminist.

    On top of this, there are equity feminists ... the earlier feminists that actually believe in equality, that are called "anti-feminists" by the mainstream gender feminists that disavowed them for daring to disagree with the gender feminist direction into misandry.

    Feminism is now tainted with the deceptive action of man-hating prominent "feminists" that use the classic definition of "feminism" in an attempt to have all other "feminists" cover for their misandrist actions. This is why feminism keeps losing support year over year. Eventually, self-proclaimed feminists can no longer justify defending man-haters as feminists just because they choose to call themselves feminists.

    But the biggest problem today with identifying as a feminist, is that the PROMINENT feminists that hold positions of power within the mainstream feminist movement are on the public record with their shameless man-hating statements made under the banner of "feminism" ... to no challenge to their prominence, or direction of feminism. So feminism is actually that ugly stuff that they promote that looks nothing at all like gender equality. And trying to convince people that feminism is just about equality, while the most of the prominent feminists are out in public making a complete mockery of that ideal, is futile.

    At the start it was about gender equality, but as the gap that separated both men and women is starting to close in what feminism used to be will be known as common sense and the rest will be known as.... people trying to switch the power dinamic?

    Kind of makes you wonder if feminism is really about ‘leveling the playing field’ or just not allowing the ‘opposing team’ to get on the field in the first place to ensure an easy victory ...

    It actually is about gender equality, specifically about closing the gap between men and women. Since women have been marginalized for years and years (we only got the right to vote a century ago as of the New Year!), and we still have to deal with disadvantages in various areas such as the workplace or with making calls about our own biology.

    With every cause there are radicals, so sadly there are women who want to see men in the place we occupied in the social order not that long ago. The first generation of college women was actually full of lesbians who wanted to meet other lesbians, since they didn't exactly have gay meet-and-greets back then. The college environment was the next best thing.But the true point of feminism is to improve society eventually to the point where no person will need extra help based on their gender. Everyone will have equal opportunity for things as long as they're willing to put in the effort.

      Yawn. There is no right to vote. Women were also voting at the start of the country under the same laws as men. The only time women were held to different voting laws was a short period of time in the 20th century after the laws were changed for men.

    Q.  "Is feminism about gender equality?"

    A.   No.  Feminism is not about gender equality.  Feminism has lobbied for and won many, many policies that advantage females over males and are not equal.  Examples include having women added to affirmative action, women owned business advantages, various healthcare advantages, WEEA and VAWA..  Policies that advantage females over males are not equal.

    Q.  "The majority of people in colleges are women. How do you explain that?"

    A.    One of the laws feminism lobbied for and achieved is the Women's Educational Equity Act  or WEEA, (1974) which also created the Women's Educational Equity Act Center which was given money annually by Congress and the authority to influence K-12 education to focus on girls. (1)  It should come as no surprise that since passing this act, boys have done relatively worse in K-12 with few and fewer going onto college.

    While the Women's Educational Equity Act is a U.S. law, many other countries have made similar changes to their education systems.

    Feminism isn’t and never was about gender equality.  As the name suggests, it’s about what’s best for women.

      I disagree. It is for what is best for feminism - it is distinctly detrimental to the well being of many women as well as most men. In fact with it's attacks on freedoms and justice, it is distinctly detrimental to all including feminists.

    Watch out for flying pigs.  FEMinism is about gains for FEMales.  By definition.
