When it comes to equality amongst the sexes, feminists strive for the equal rights for women and men by destroying the supposed “patriarchy”, or so they say. The feminism of today known as “third-wave feminism” has evolved into a vindictive, man-hating philosophy that strives to belittle men and establish a new matriarchy.
Now, do I believe that all the women who identify themselves as feminists, insane? No. I know several ladies who identify as feminists, whom of which are actually sane and respectful individuals. These particular individuals are people I have come to respect despite the fact that I don’t believe in the feminist movement.
To clarify, I am not against equal rights for men and women. That couldn’t be far from the truth. Women deserve the same God-given rights as men. However, I cannot bring myself to join a movement where the majority of its members are insane man-haters. Instead, I consider myself an egalitarian, and as an egalitarian, I believe in equality regardless of sex, gender, race, ethnicity, etc.
The definition of egalitarianism according to Google is: “Relating to or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities.” And While the definition of feminism is: “The advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.”, that is hardly what this “third-wave feminism” stands for.
An interesting poll conducted in Britain found that 86% of men believed in equality of the sexes as well as 74% of women, while only 7% of people defined themselves as feminists. In America, a poll conducted by YouGov and The Huffington Post found that 23% of women identify as feminists as well as 16% of men, and still 85% overall, believe in equality of the sexes.
People just aren’t buying into the movement as they used to. Feminism used to stand for the equality of men and women but now-a-days, people are becoming aware of what it truly stands for, and that’s the hatred towards men. Egalitarianism however, has always stood for equality. Feminism truly has evolved into a vindictive and spiteful movement, hell-bent on belittling men.
