Real feminists do exist in the moderate left and the majority of the Republican party. The quintessential feminist is someone who believes that all people - including females - are created equal, and therefore deserve the same rights, freedoms, and treatment under the law. The groups mentioned above do believe in this principle.
Today, many people who brand themselves "feminists" on the progressive left want a different kind of equality: the equality of outcome, but only where it benefits women. For example, they want affirmative action to push more women into the stem field; their logic is that we need an equal amount of men and women in the field, otherwise it’s sexist. But then why is it the case that they don’t want to bring up the number of women in other fields, such as in brick laying? Why don’t we say the Justice system is sexist because men occupy the majority of prison cells? Why don’t we have affirmative action for male nurses?
The reality is, today’s “feminists” are actually female supremacists. They want the state and institutions within to implement programs and laws that elevate women while diminishing men. Equality of outcome that is applied in this arbitrary manner clearly detracts from the equality of treatment under the law, as laws are established to always help one group at the expense of the other. True feminists constitute the majority of people in America. The feminists I am haranguing are thankfully a minority, but unfortunately they are loud, and their autistic clamor carries a lot of weight in our institutions.
