Feminism has become synonymous with man-hating. The mere mention of the word “feminist” has become misconstrued as “man-hater”. Feminism is now widely regarded as the belief that women should be more powerful than men; a form of male subjugation. However, this is a blatant misconception.
Let us explain the two keywords here according to Oxford dictionary, Miriam Webster and Wikipedia. Merging the definitions from all 3.
Man-hating or misandry.
Feminism is the belief that women should have the same rights and opportunities as men; the political, personal, economic and social equality of the sexes (both women and men). The struggle to achieve this.
Misandry is hatred, contempt and prejudice against men or boys.
From the definition above, you would understand that feminism and misandry(man-hating) are as different as light and day.
Feminism aims to achieve equality in all aspects of life for both men and women everywhere in the world.
Feminism is not about the superiority of the sexes or encouraging women to subjugate men.
It is about the interest of women and men.
