And just remember that the poll results will only show what gagers believe not what the rest of the world does.
- Yes, it is not clear anymore what the purpose of the movement is. As a result many people are getting the wrong idea, damaging the movement image and dividing society even more.
- No, the movement has always been solid on its goals. Opposition has been harsh nontheless noticeable progress has been made. The more support the movement gets the more united our society will be.

I am a feminist but I want equality for both genders, so to me the definition of a feminist is a person that wants equality for all genders, I do not hate men and I don't hate women but I do hate bigoted men and women, people that blame everything on the opposite sex. Men are suppressed they get assaulted and raped, but because they are men their told to suck it up or be happy that they were assaulted, even the definition of rape is against them in a way, they're told how to look and how to act just like women so when people ask if it's easier to be a men or a women the answer is obviously neither because both sides have pressures dictated on to them by society. This fight between genders needs to stop so we can come together and fix what we have struggled with for awhile there shouldn't be things like oh he's a man he needs to look masculine or she's a woman she should be small and feminine, men can wear makeup and be pretty, women can belch and curse like sailors.

I think there's a real movement to discredit feminism being led by the Pussy Grabbers and Brett Kavanaughs of the world.
good question. i don't think it's losing it's purpose as much as there are less things to fight for and the things they fight for are often times more difficult to accomplish or even figure out how to truly fight them... early it was far easier accomplishments (voting, workplace equality, pay gaps, etc) but now you get into more difficult to accomplish issues like sex trafficking and what not which are already illegal so you are not working against a single offender but rather a cloaked unseen plethora of offenders.
kind of like black civil rights. the fight was easier when there were clearly defined institutions that you could address (schools, government, etc) but now you are simply fighting general racism which isn't coming from a single source and isn't always readily apparent who it comes from or how to fight it
