“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.”

REBECCA WEST

Feminism, the belief in the social, economic, and political equality of the sexes. Although largely originating in the West, feminism is manifested worldwide and is represented by various institutions committed to the act on behalf of women’s rights and interests. I assume that everyone agrees in equal opportunities in that one’s ethnicity, religion, sex, sexuality, nationality etc should not be a bar to an opportunity unless it would endanger themselves, others or that those qualities would be a reasonable bar to that opportunity so, feminism seems a good idea in fighting for women rights and equality. As more and more groups joined and labelled themselves ‘feminist’, the word feminism started to be misinterpreted.  When it comes to criticism of feminism, there is an automatic sexist label which descends upon you if you criticise feminism.

If by feminism you mean the modern manifestation of feminism which talks about “rape culture”, presses for gender quotas and imagines that boys and girls would be the same except for socialization, you will attract criticism.  It often goes out of its way to exclude men. Worse still, in the past years, feminism has actually fought against father’s rights. I think, one of the easiest arguments against feminists in this regard is that we shouldn’t achieve equality by stripping people of rights and freedoms. We should achieve equality by raising everyone up. There is another abused statistic used by feminists to tell women that they only get 77c for every dollar a man makes. Why do they say this? To get women to feel like they are being unfairly treated and become feminists. They don’t care about the women they harm to that end. The wage gap can only be created by adding the total amount men make and the total amount women make and then dividing each by the number of men and women. It doesn’t account for people working in different fields or even different hours. Men simply work more hours, so they earn more.

This is usually thrown around as a bit of a joke, but I posit that this actually encapsulates all problems with feminism: you are expected to follow blindly, and when you stray from the herd – NO MATTER YOUR REASON – you are shamed and demonized. The biggest problem with modern feminism is that entrance is mandatory. So the best argument against it is pointing out the hypocrisy in advocating ‘no means no’ when it suits you and not when it suits others.
