A word on Feminism

I don't usually do fact I never do this, but this needs to be said with so many people misusing the term feminism is a word on Feminism.
Too many people mistake feminism with Misandry.

Feminism is a collection of movements and ideologies aimed at defining, establishing, and defending equal political, economic, and social rights for women.This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment (Wikipedia). Do not get it confused with Misandry, which is the hatred of mankind and the likes.

It seems that nowadays, radical feminists and a mass of uneducated/online band-waggoning man haters, get that mixed up. In no way do you have to hate men to be a strong independendent woman with rights. In fact, hating men isn’t at all what feminism is about. Hating men will not get women rights, nor will it put them on equal grounds.

I am a feminist and I say that proudly, but it really really makes me sad when I see women man-bashing for the sake of feminism. Why redirect the anger/hate? Why not aim to absolve it all together. That is all, if you managed to read my little thought rant, thanks/sorry.
