Isn't disliking all feminists because some seem to, well, hate men (and other stuff lol) similar to how people dislike furries because some of them are seen as "freaks"? Idk I guess one bad apple spoils the bunch.
I'd call myself a feminist, I support equality and all that. I know there are quite a few feminists who think it's okay to try and put themselves above men but there are also quite a few who just want equality for all genders.
Well I'm not gonna tell you who to like and dislike, I just thought I'd put in my two cents
I'm anti feminist because it's filled with an unfortunate number of people who perpetuate ideas such as rape culture, but ignore the travesties against women in ACTUAL rape cultures. And when an anti feminist such as myself begins fundraising for such women, it pisses those feminists off.
Disliking feminism doesn't mean you dislike all people who call themselves feminists, does it?
Did this actually happen, or is it a hypothesis of yours?
Not necessarily, but that seems to be the way OP is operating, which I would guess is what Rose's post was addressing.
There is no "technically" about it. The feminist movement isnt the be-all end-all of the women's rights movement. This has already been established, use your brain, wanting equal rights for EVERYONE doesn't make ANYONE a feminist.The definition of feminist is "Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve equal political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment." so technically if you're an 'anti-feminist' then that means your against wanting women to have equal rights to men, but I do see why some people dislike feminists (term put lightly) as some self-labelled feminists don't 100% understand the concept and think that feminism is more about women having more power than they do now rather than having equal rights.
This actually happened when AmazingAthiest actually started raising money to help women who are actually oppressed.
I'm operating in a general sense. When, from what I've seen and heard and experienced, I say fuck feminists, I don't mean to say fuck the individual people so much as fuck the movement and what people therein insist on taking it in the direction that it's going in. If there was a miscommunication on that part I'll admit to it probably being my fault. But I digress.

You said being against feminism makes me against women's rights. So, yeah.I didn't say that someone is automatically a feminist for wanting equal rights for everyone, but not every self labelled feminist is the stereotypical triggering tumblr user that overdramatises everything.

Feminism exists for what ever purpose the people within the movement itself says it exists for. And again, an unfortunate number of people say it exists for truly disgusting and hypocritical reasons. The 2 (Furries and Feminism) can't really be compared for the purposes of this conversation. One has a goal and pushes for certain political ideas, the other dresses up. Period. I have yet to hear anyone say that they "reject" the furry fandom in the same way that I'm saying that I reject the feminist movement.Feminism exists to better women's rights, however some people use feminism wrongly and to empower themselves, which is the reason as to why you may hate this movement of such. As someone said earlier on in this thread, it's like somebody hating the entire furry fandom and opposing anybody who says they are one just because they have heard of the negative stereotypes and certain individuals who reflect badly upon the true diversity of the fandom.
Why did the feminist cross the road? To suck my dick.The way #3 was done had me rolling XD
