    There is a common misconception that feminists are reverse sexists, however, unlike male sexists who oppress women, feminists do not seek to oppress men. Rather, they seek equal compensation, opportunities, and treatment across genders.
    Feminism seeks to achieve equal treatment and opportunity for women in order to achieve similar opportunities across different fields of work and culture and equal respect in a variety of roles. Feminists theorists often explore the concepts with regard to which of women’s experiences are taken as normative, as well as the ways in which inequality is compounded by the intersection of multiple factors and identities.
    The goal of feminism is to create equity, which is essential for leveling the playing field to ensure that no one’s rights are violated due to factors such as race, gender, language, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, political or other beliefs, nationality, social origin, class, or wealth status.

    Feminism is the belief that men and women should have equal rights. It’s about acknowledging both the genders equally, none more or less than the other. It’s about assuring that girls and women get the same opportunities that boys and men get in their lives. It’s about learning, unlearning, and relearning the basic concept associated with women’s equality. It’s not about hating men. It’s not about women’s superiority. Feminism is about accepting and empowering women to stand up for their rights and not about ridiculing other genders or hating other genders. Feminism is about accepting and empowering women to stand up for their rights and not about ridiculing other genders or hating other genders. This is what feminism is about. It is a movement that empowers women and gives them a voice to stand up for themselves. Feminism is about accepting and empowering women to stand up for their rights and not about ridiculing other genders or hating other genders. The radical thoughts of feminism give birth to Pseudo-feminism. Pseudo-feminists want a world that is ruled solely by women and they use feminism as a tool to propagate their idea of superiority. This is a reason that many people do not support feminism and call feminism a fake movement, there are also many gender clashes because of the false portrayal of feminism in society. The truth is that the whole movement cannot be defined by only a fraction of pseudo-feminists. Women deserve equality, not superiority. Feminism is for everybody. Both genders have the right to feel vulnerable or strong. Feminism is a movement that fights against the inequality of women and it is about all genders deserving a fair chance. The feminist movement should not be misguided by the false narrative set by pseudo-feminists. If you have read till here, you must have already known what really is feminism and what it isn’t!

    The real meaning of feminism is – equal rights to women as men. Men and women should have equal political, social and economical rights. Feminism= equality. This is how simple feminism is. Feminism is purely a movement which intends to enlighten people with a goal of improving gender equality and strengthening women’s status our society. It’s main aim is to lift up women and bring them to the same level as men. It gives women the much needed voice in a patriarchal world. It ensures that women are paid equally for the same work and are not abused by men. It supports equality in education and opportunities. People who are unaware of the real meaning of feminism often end up being a pseudo feminists, who want a world ruled by women. They mock innocent men and try to resolve all injustices done on women my targeting and demeaning men. Nowadays more and more men have started becoming victims of pseudo feminism. For instance, if a woman comes out about her defamation and harassment by a man, people start blinding believing the girl without any proofs without even letting the man speak in his defence. They start bashing the guy without listening to his part of the story. Just like a rotten apple spoils the whole barrel there are some people whose deceiving ideologies has destroyed the true meaning of feminism. Instead of bringing equality between genders they tend to blame men for all the injustices done to women. They believe they that in order to uplift one gender there is a need to suppress the other. People believe that feminists want to control the world and put men down. While we must know that this is not Feminism. If you believe in the equality of women as men then you are a feminists. Feminism never aims to degrade any gender.

    Feminism means the dismantling of patriarchy and liberation of women. Feminism is the movement that aims to achieve equality of opportunities after the patriarchy is dismantled from this society. Feminism isn’t making things worse for both men and women in the name of “equality”. What we see nowadays is, when a woman talks about her rights, you’ll always have a guy responding that the same thing happens with him too, and that it’s normal. Just because something is common does not mean it’s normal. Exploitation of anyone is inhumane and wrong regardless of their gender. And just because majority of people are exploited, it doesn’t mean that the minority of people should also be exploited in the name of “equality”. What we need to realise is that as long as patriarchy exists, there can be no equality in this society because it wouldn’t even make sense.

    Feminism also doesn’t aim to hate on men. Some people who hate or discriminate against men in the name of feminism are nothing but mere ignorants who just want to misrepresent feminism and divert people from the real aim of the movement. I feel that this shouldn’t even be called “pseudo feminism” because attaching the term feminism to this stupidity is just a disgrace towards the actual movement.
