I find this totally bizarre, like i would dating a guy and then at some point during the first few dates i tell him i'm a feminist and i can see their face drop... like why do you guys do that?

Because feminism's image has been forever tarnished. The general assumption is that most feminists are crazy man-haters.6

they are just misinformed, like most of the people on this site. They hear the word feminist, and they automatically think femiNAZI and women who hate men and want not only equality but superiority. They picture extreme feminists who march in the streets and are psycho. They are too ignorant to realize most feminists are nothing like that. It's almost as if the word itself has been given a bad image due to so much misinformation by the media, the internet and elsewhere. It's quite a shame because if they really new what feminism was about, I'd think they'd be much more open to it. In fact, most people are feminists, they just don't know it and wouldn't wanna associate themselves with that word. You don't have to be an activist to be a feminist, it's a belief, basically that no one gender is superior to another and it actually doesn't only fight for women. Anyway, long story short, he's ignorant. And do you really wanna be with someone so ignorant and close minded? you could do better :)3
