People often ask why Women Against Feminism exists. One reader recently quipped that women being against feminism is like fish being against water. And yet the fact remains that most women don’t identify as feminists. Polls in the US show that as few as 18% of women there call themselves a feminist. In the UK, the equivalent figure for feminism is even more bleak at only 7% of women. This is despite more than two thirds of women in both countries supporting equality of the sexes. Read More
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines feminism as “The theory of political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.” By this description, I should identify myself as a feminist, but modern-day feminism has taken a different path that I cannot relate to. Read More

Rape has always been an inevitable talking point of feminism. In fact, any time I have immersed myself in feminist perspective, much of what they believe seems to boil down to sexual assault, rape and violence against women.
The objectification and sexualisation of women is something widely discussed in the feminist world. These concepts, along with the “Patriarchy” are the primary issues at the core of the third-wave feminist movement. Read More

I have been a men’s rights activist since a few years. Ironically mostly after I got in social work and they tried to brainwash me with feminism, I ended up knowing too much about it and placed myself against it. I’m not against women’s rights. I’m a woman, and not a conservative one for sure. But I am against feminism, the movement. Most people think it’s illogical with everything I have been through. So I’ll do a quick summary first. I have been victim of bullying from 6 to 17. I developed borderline personality disorder and it normalized violence in my life. I then went from abusive man to other abusive man. I had to get the police involved a few times because they beat me and one even broke 2 of my ribs. Read More
I feel like I live in the world that is extremely sexist… against men. The country I live in has become extremely misandrist, and I am becoming increasing afraid that if I have a son he will grow up in a world that ignores his issues and attempts to make him feel guilty because he is a man.

This WOMAN does not support it. They call it a women’s march but it’s only for women who share the same thoughts and beliefs as they do. That means they are the women who believe X,Y and Z. Oh and hate Trump even though he hasn’t done one thing yet. Way to be open. Way to be accepting. Way to NOT represent all women.
I am all for equal pay with men, but marching and chanting isn’t going to do a damn thing. In fact, it’s going to do just the opposite. Trump won, get over it and also give him a chance. The Country needs UNITY not more DIVISION and all this does it keep us from getting together.
I am a black anti-feminist woman and my husband is a white man who has never been against feminism, or given feminism much thought. Last night we had an interesting conversation over dinner.
We own a building with several apartments and at the moment we are changing the renter of the apartment that is closest to the apartment that is our own. We don’t live there all the time, but we are there often. We had to choose between two applicants, one is a woman and one is a man. They earn similar amounts, and both work near by. The woman smokes and the guy doesn’t. Read More

I’d rather appreciate everything that has come within the past 100 years than try to fight for more.
In response to an article I recently read “You Are Not A Feminist, But I Am For You”.Feminism, the word currently very popular around the globe. This is what I have to say about it in response to this article I read. I’m not a feminist and I truly don’t want to be. I don’t want you to be one for me either. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the word Feminism it means the advocacy of woman’s rights on the basis of equality of the sexes. Being a feminist isn’t going to stop or help sexual assault, arranged marrigaes, stay at home dads, violence, the victims in Nepal, single mothers, and young woman find a good husband. Feminism doesn’t even mean the same as to what this writer is saying. Read More

Firstly, how much equality? That sounds like a daft question to some, but what I mean by it is do you want equality of opportunity, or equality of outcome?
Equality of opportunity means that men and women have the right to acquire the same opportunities, chances and success – providing that other requirements are met.
Equality of outcome is more about distribution, rather than equal rights. It means men and women – as gender collectives, rather than individuals – having the same result in terms of numbers. Other requirements here are basically irrelevant. This is best explained in an example. Read More
Coming from this lovely tumblr
1. They constantly victimize my gender, and I find it insulting.
Treating women like victims instead of empowering them does nothing but hold us back. I don’t feel disadvantaged as a woman and I don’t need other women making me feel like a victim when I’m not.
2. They try to convince me that I’m a feminist when I tell them I’m not.
“Oh you’re not a feminist? So you don’t believe in equal rights for men and women?”
“No. That’s not what I said.”
“Well if you believe in equality, then you are a feminist.” Read More
