I have a question. If feminism is about the equalization of rights between men and women, why isn't it called equalism?
I hear constantly that men should be feminists because all it calls for is equality, but if that's what the movement really wants then why is it titled in support of only one of the groups it is hoping to equalize.
I asked this to a professor i know who is very passionate feminist, and she showed me this image and that this is what feminists want, equity not equality:
But I am sorry how the fuck does this make sense with any feminist arguments? Isn't the whole point of feminism to stop how society sees women as less from the start? and how a women should not be judged just for being a woman? but if equity is the defining principle then isn't that quite literally saying that women are less from the start and therefor need more help to be as good as men.
My point is if that feminism isn't about equality anymore it's about "feeling" equal than actual equality stop telling me that it's about equality
