NO. I would not break up with my other half for being anti-feminist, and I am feminist. The reason is because I want to be able to show him that I am a great woman, which is what most anti-feminist males need to know. I'm romantic, intelligent, considerate, and on his side. I am opposed to women getting abused and held back for being women - that's what it's about for me.
If we ever got to the point where he says, "I dislike feminists.. but you I like," then that to me is a ground-breaker. It shows that the more positive influence I can be as a feminist, the better. I wouldn't be interested in changing his mind if that's not in the cards. But I have to be the good example to make him see that *I'm* worth fighting for.
If every man had a woman in their life like that to respect and be on their side for, then really, feminism has done its job. You can't make someone think about the big picture and expect them to show support for some Sally-Sue who lives 2000 miles away who didn't get a promotion in the fire-department because she was a woman, but if his viewpoints closer to home include fighting for my rights because we are connected, then that's important enough to me.0
