    This for sure.

    I've seen female superiority stuff posted on here by a few women which has made me mad, as exactly this sets back the ideal of feminism and creates anti-feminism movements.

    When I think of feminism, I think of Winifred Banks.

    I'm not a feminist.
    Im for equality.
    I feel feminism oppresses me.
    I'm sure many people on here will laugh at me but feminism is about choice and I have a choice to not be a feminist.
    And just because I say that doesn't mean I don't want equal rights.

    I have had many debates about feminism both in real life and on the net (not so much this site) and I have been called stupid, uneducated, brainwashed, old fashioned, oppressed and a whole bunch of things by many feminists.

    I have seen women be attacked by feminist for what they do in the bedroom to how they live their lives to how they raise theirs kid to what religion they are.
    Its always the same story they are stupid, uneducated and brainwashed by society blah blah blah.

    I mean debates even on here have come down to shaving your vagina and the feminist movement it's just not my cup of tea.

    Believe what you want, stand up for what you believe in but don't degrade people who have different views to you. That's my motto.

    You know why I need feminism because right here on Bubhub people think I shouldn't have the right to do what I want with my own body. I am not a vessel.

    I call myself a feminist.

    I simply want equal rights and opportunities for both genders. At this time this doesn't exist.

    I have never met a feminist, here or IRL, that hates men or degrades them.

    There are extremists in every social culture, however most people ignore them...except when it's convenient to portray all people of that culture with extremist beliefs.

    I'm definitely a feminist but like others, I don't agree with ALL feminist movements and ideas. For example I'm really not a fan of Melina tankard reist at the moment. It's not that I don't agree with some of what she says but she just takes it so far, being offended by everything and it makes me yawn. I think some people think being a feminist means you HAVE to fit certain criteria. You have to hate the sex industry, you can't like to shave your pubic hair.. to me feminism is about women having freedom and equality, being treated with dignity and their contributions to society being valued and respected.

    Fundamentalists of every colour and creed are dangerous, destabilising and ruin it for the 99%. Islam, Christianity and feminism being excellent examples.

    2nd and 3rd-wave 'bra burning' feminists got all the press and unfortunately the feminist movement is fragmented now and unable to present a picture of what feminism means today. I think every woman (and man) who believes women deserve equal status to men is a feminist.

    As an aside, the decline of feminism loosely tracks the rise of Western right-wing ideology globally, and I am concerned by that.

    I wont identify as a feminist because I don't want to. It doesn't mean I don't believe in alot of what 'you feminists' (tongue in cheek) believe.

    I should add, anyone who claims feminism is no longer needed because women have equal rights now is wearing GREAT big blinkers. Take a little look into Iraq or Sudan and you will clearly see there is a BURNING need for feminists to stand up for our fellow women who ARE being violently oppressed, and are suffering terribly.
