What exactly is ‘feminism’? Google gives me the definition:
“The advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.”

If we look at the definition, it simply states that women should have equal rights to men. If this is the case, then why do I see so many self-proclaimed feminists out there screaming that ‘All men suck!’ or ‘Men should be enslaved!’ ? Is it not equally as wrong to put down men, just as some men have done so to women? Is that not just sexism in itself?
I am all for men and women having equal rights in education, work and society.
But the fact is that, there are some self-proclaimed feminists that I could certainly live without.
Seeing a working woman is absolutely brilliant, but sometimes they too can act pompous.
Some ‘feminists’ think that being something as simple as a ‘housewife’ should be shamed upon. Is it so wrong for a woman to love her family and be fine with her husband being the breadwinner? No. Again, it comes down to being able to make your choices. To be a housewife or a mother is no less important than striving to be a working woman. Just because she chose this path, does not mean she is any less for woman equality than you are. If she wants to put on an apron, make her husband happy and care for her children – it is up to her. It’s her own choice.
There is nothing worthless about a woman who prefers to have a family to take care of rather than work.
I sometimes see other women angry over the fact that certain movies do not have female heroes.
An example of this would be the recent (awesome) movie ‘The Avengers’ and about how Black Widow was nothing but a sexy background character who could be Iron Man or Thor’s backup. Apart from those statements being inaccurate; I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. There are other movies to which a woman is the main hero, so I think that if you want to watch something which portrays that, then go do it. Do not criticize a movie for their lack of female heroes.
Women rights are important, but that doesn’t mean you can act so self righteous.
Again, everything I have said is my own opinion.
