>women were more likely to identify as feminist, nine per cent v. four per cent of men
>men were more supportive generally of equality between the sexes - 86 per cent compared to 74 per cent of women
>Younger women were more likely to call themselves feminist, with 19 per cent aged 18-24 using the word, but they were also most likely to oppose feminism
So men are more likely to support gender equality, while women are more likely to be feminists instead
More evidence that feminism is finally dying out. The number of people they can con into supporting their cult is dwindling, by this point I doubt many people who truly support gender equality are still gullible enough to be feminists. The movement is almost entirely made up of people who openly oppose equality now
Feminism in Britain has gotten some much deserved bad publicity recently in regards to equality. Pic-related, a british uni was going to observe International Men's Day this past November, and raise awareness of men's issues. The Uni had already focused on women's issues many times before
But, feminists threw a fit and made the uni cancel the day, because gender equality should focus solely on women's issues
Just a few hours before the Uni decided that male suicide is a non-issue that should never be discussed, a male student killed himself. Another victory for feminism!
Similar issue in Parliament with International Men's Day. A male MP suggested they have a talk about men's issues, since Parliament regularly talks about women's issues. A feminist MP objected and said nobody should discuss men's issues until women make up half of Parliament.
Fortunately feminists lost that round and Parliament actually did have a discussion on men's issues
Gender Equality-- Gender eshmality. All these leftist names are bullshit buzzwords for the general overarching goal of ruining society. There's nothing behind it but the general arch of any infiltrated society generally lurches leftward anyway.
And once we've ruined society we what, dance in the ashes? These people think that they're doing the right thing you know.
I was raised as a man in a household that considered itself heavily feminist, but no one in my family ever espoused stuff like this. It's hard to say what feminism really represents these days. There are lots of old guard feminists that still identify as such and fight good fights, but the label has been taken up by so many people with so many different ideas that I feel like it doesn't mean as much as it used to.

Any feminist alive today became a feminist during a time when most feminists opposed equality. Feminists in the 70s opposed equal custody rights for fathers, believed that DV was only men abusing women, because women couldn't abuse men, and were responsible for the bullshit "patriarchy theory" that's responsible for the problems feminism has today.
Sure you had a few good feminists, but by the end of the 70s most of those had broken away from the pack. Believe it or not most MRAs back then were even feminists, but by the late 70s it was clear that you couldn't support gender equality and be a feminist.
The belief that second wave feminism was only about equality is historical revisionism, period. Almost anybody who truly supported gender equality in the 70s became an anti-feminist by the 80s
>The funny thing with this is that feminism is simply supporting womens equality to men. So everyone who says they support equality is a feminist in everything but name.
There are a lot of different kinds of feminism, and that's my kind. It's hard to say what makes a "true" feminist. We have to admit that there are people who take things further than that though, and in negative ways.

I'm gonna look into that when I get the chance. I definitely don't know as much about the history of feminism as I'd like to. That said, I'm not stupid enough to trust 4Chan on feminism.
>the history of feminism as I'd like to
Even in the beginning of feminists, there were radicals. Look at the Suffragettes in the UK, moderate women's rights group (National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies) were about to get the right to vote by negotiation although the Liberal majority at that time was not safe enough (1908-1913).
Then you got Emmeline Pankhurst and her Women’s Social and Political Union attacking churches, police officers, sacking shop, terrorising everyone. This lead to a backlash against women's rights as a result.
Of course now Suffragettes are glorified and the moderate are completly forgotten, yet they did more harm than good at the time.
