As a guy, I can't help but feel that Feminism often attempts to make itself look like a complete and total joke. It's followers are often complete blind to the hardships of the other race, but are more than capable ot perceiving anything that would harm women in any way, shape or form (sometimes, not really).
I'd love to know what makes you a feminist? I'm going with the modern definition of Feminism.

As long as boys and men who display their perfectly natural human emotions are mocked and derisively called girls/bitches/pussies, there is a need for feminism.
As long as there are countries where women are disowned or killed by their families for being raped, or married off to their rapists, there is a need for feminism.
As long as women being targeted by their current or former romantic partners make up the largest demographic of homicide victims in America, there is a need for feminism.
As long as stay at home fathers are mocked and told they're not real men for letting their female partner take financial care of their family, there is a need for feminism.
As long as male victims of female domestic abuse and rape are not taken seriously or supported because people are stuck thinking how could a man possibly let a woman, his inherent inferior, do such things to him, there is a need for feminism.
As long as there are thousands, if not millions, of people who genuinely believe that women shouldn't be in leadership positions because of hormones, there is a need for feminism.
As long as "you ____ like a girl" is used as an insult, and most insults towards men target their masculinity or accuse them of femininity, there is a need for feminism.
As long as women are shamed for things men are glorified for, there is a need for feminism.
As long as women get an advantage in custody battles because society has painted a picture of us as being inherently maternal and made for nothing more than child rearing, there is a need for feminism.
As long as women are denied the right to bodily autonomy, there is a need for feminism.
There is no country in the world where feminism isn't necessary, for the benefit of women and men. Because patriarchal views and the demonizing of everything arbitrarily deemed feminine or even loosely associated with women have harmful effects on everyone.3

There is no "modern definition" of feminism there's just one definition of feminism and it's definitely not the one that stuck up machos like you try to make out of it. Feminism is simply fighting for women so they can have equal rights. Exactly in the same way that say, Martin Luther King was fighting for black folks to have equal rights. I can't here this "feminists want female supremacy" bullshit anymore. It makes me so angry. This is NOTHING any feminist EVER said. It's bullshit that patriarchic jerks came up with to discredit feminism. It's exactly the same that was happening in the 1960s when white racists started saying stuff like "black civil rights' activists want to create a black dictatorship and suppress us white people". It's a lie and a very vicious one that is.5
