I have always understood feminism to be women's rights activists, but some people want to change that into being 'equality'.
For feminism to be for equality you would need to look at some of the things that also work against men. But feminism is female centered. It is only focused on women in society. Therefore, it cannot be for equality.
MRA is also not for equality but a movement for men's rights.
This doesn't mean that they are against each other since neither of the two wants either side to have less rights.
But I have been seeing recently in the media that a lot of celebrity females are saying that if you are not a feminist you are part of the problem because feminism just wants 'equality'.
I think this is very destructive for any type of discussion because you take the notion that women are oppressed in society to be a fact, even though we technically can't prove it.
Below is a video I think people should watch because she brings up some good points. I just want to see a nice civil discussion :)
