Me, because I want to live in a better world and I want my children to live in a better world.
Any woman who says she is anti-feminist should forgo:
- her right to vote.
- her right to bodily autonomy including any recourse to the law if she is raped or abused by her husband
- her right to receive the same pay as a man for doing the same work
- her right to attend higher education or be employed as a police officer, pilot, etc
- her right to own property
etc (the list is long, very VERY long)

I need feminism because I work in a female dominated industry because I'm awesome at it, not because I'm female! I need feminism because I'm the mother of two little boys who will most likely be husbands and fathers one day.

The advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
(Not 'hating men, hating feminine clothing/style, and advocating against shaving underarms and legs' )
So yeah, if someone says they don't believe in feminism, according to the above definition, it can be assumed they are against equality for men and women.
I love men. I have 9 brothers

WAF... what the f*^k are they on?? I feel sick just reading the headings of their articles. Teaching your kids not to follow their dreams?? You can be a good Christian without denying yourself everything, good grief! And you can be a great mother & partner without being a doormat/slave/zombie.
I need feminism because:
-we haven't achieved equality yet;
-I don't want DD to ever be made to feel she isn't as good as someone else because of her sex.
