A movement or social philosophy that advocates legal, social, and economic equality for women. Contrary to the beliefs of some misguided individuals, it derives no particular pleasure from the genital-related misfortunes of men, being rather preoccupied with such frivolous goals as getting paid the same goddamned money for doing the same goddamned work, not being forced to have babies, and not having to put up with shit from the entertainment, advertising and fashion industries that have a vested interest in making sure women hate their bodies.
"Feminism is a benevolent force that aids in providing the best opportunities for all members of society, and anyone who believes otherwise is a paranoid, reactionary fuckwit."

A view that treating men and women equally must involve man-hating given the universality of women hating by men who'd vote for this definition.
If feminism is where women have all the power, why do men have all the Presidency?

Feminism is a broad subject with many valid definitions. Among them the most popular and widely accepted is that it is the radical notion:

"that women are in fact human beings with the same basic human rights and needs for self fullfillment as men."

A definition that might seem flat and dumb to the less educated masses who might not consider the short historic period this has been an accepted idea. (some are still arguing.)

There are many challenges yet to conquer for the modern feminist, you need only take a look at the other definitions offered at this very site to get a general feeling for the hassle and dicrimination a woman or man feminist might encounter daily.
Next time ignorant suckers bemoan the fact that they no longer have the legal responcibility of the woman they choose to mary, the fact that they no longer have to fear getting a girl pregnant each time they have sex and the fact that they can afford the newest wide screen tv because their significant other was able to chip in cause she's like getting payed soon to be eaqually at her job. Take a time to think about what feminism gave you for free while you was busy scratching your balls and feeling underprivileged.

A gift. Men are in a world where they are bombarded with media, largely pornography, that tells them that women are for one purpose: to look at and have sex with. Pornography is full of misogyny. Feminists want to make men human again; they want them to act like real human beings who think of women as real human beings too and not just as a package that is invisible without breast implants, a small waist, high heels...ect... Feminists see that men are raping women because pornography makes it seem like this is okay. Feminists see that pornography has integrated itself into our culture and American society so much that exercise classes consist of strip tease and 4 year olds are wearing mini-skirts. To clarify, this is one breed of feminism. Other feminists find pornography, an industry that puts women through miserable treatment and diseases, liberating. These other feminists find it liberating for women to fake orgasms and consistantly fulfill the desires of men.
Radical Feminism wants women to possess "power" consistantly through avenues other than sexuality. Radical Feminism wants to never have a woman's face covered in cum ever again.

A movement created to promote equal rights of men and women alike, simply put.

Many definitions try to degrade this notion by stating that it has backfired and turned into a reason for hating men. This is not the case. The reason people would think this is because in today's society many men are still raised on the notion that women are inferior and must be oppressed. They therefore promote hate against equal rights between men and women and try to degrade it in any way possible. Note that not all men are like this, but the majority are.

There will always be sexist men. That is the unfortunate truth.
Feminism is a notion to equalize the fields and make people realize that men and women are equal in every way.

Feminism does NOT support hate against men, it merely states that men are NOT SUPERIOR TO WOMEN. Get it in your goddamn heads, people.

“Feminism is the idea that we can make both sexes equal by focusing solely on the issues of one of them.”

Judging by what it does feminism is a movement that seeks superior rights and privileges for women while hiding under the guise of "equality"

Feminists tend to claim that their movement is about "equality" and often use the dictionary definition as proof. But the thing is that what the dictionary says and what feminism does are two completely different things. Actions speak louder than words, therefore feminism should be judge by what it does instead of by what the book says. And through its actions the feminist movement has constantly shows that it isn't about equality, but is actually about female supremacy and misandry - skewed the system in women's favor, seeking superior rights & privileges for women, demonizing men & boys etc.. It is very obvious that "equality" is nothing more than a mask that the feminist movement uses to conceal its female supremacist and anti-male agendas.
