"The official definition of antifeminism is this:
Noun 1. antifeminism - activity indicative of belief in the superiority of men over women
male chauvinism, chauvinism
sexism - discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of the opposite sex "
The real definition of antifeminism is:
Noun 1. antifeminism - activity indicative of disbelief in the superiority of women over men, opposition to female chauvinism, opposition to chauvinism, opposition to sexism, and opposition to discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of the one's own or the opposite sex "
Rather the different meaning than what feminists lkike to THINK anti-feminism means.
I do see Dr. E's point in how the term, at this stage in the game, could do more harm than good. Methinks "Anti-SEXISM"* seems to be the most accurate description for my beliefs and may fit what others here think as well.
*Since this the core of what its about. I don't advocate sexism towards either gender. (Disclaimer: I do sometimes make comments that may SOUND sexist or anti-female; but the reality is these comments are directed at the way women have embraced the "anything goes if you're a woman; women great/men pigs; I'm a strong and indepenendet woman (as long as the gov't gives me special powers and pays the bills); you men are responsible for yourselves AND me, I am accountable for nothing" mentality of female sexism/chauvinism/misandry. Or to put it another way, I DO reject those women who have chosen this path, but I likewise acknowledge that a FEW women have not gone down that path and that therefore the female of the species IS quite capable of being fiar, just, reasonable, responsible, and pleasant. My gripe is with sexist, selfish, and stupid women, not with women collectively- I'd just like to see the balance between the two shift.
