The issue I care about is the misconception of feminism, and how it does not mean to hate on man.

Do you know people who think this?

While brainstorming for a topic to work on for my project, it came across me that so many others misunderstood feminism as women’s supremacy and the act of hating men. But that is not true.

Feminism means social movement towards equal rights for all genders. It doesn’t say that we have to hate men and that we have to have better opportunities than men. I wanted people to realize this, and stop sending hate towards feminists.

Why do you think people send hate towards feminists this way?

As I continued to research this issue, I noticed that the common myth of feminism/feminist is that they hate men, value women above men, unattractive, and not feminine. I disagree with all those myths. I do not hate men, I value women equally as men, and could be what they describe as “feminine.”

I think this issue is really important because if the misconception continues, people will negatively view feminism which wouldn’t be so supportive of our goals towards gender equality (SDG 5) and reduce inequalities (SDG 10). It could also make people hesitant at becoming a feminist. I also would identify myself as a bit of a feminist, but I was afraid that people would view me differently once I say that.

Have you ever felt this fear?

Below is the video that I found really inspiring.

I hope that you would be encouraged to become a feminist and correct people who view feminism as women’s supremacy.

Dear Kahyun:
I am delighted about your post, “Feminism Does Not Mean Women Supremacy,” because it really brings together the idea of feminism and what it stands for. How it’s about people fighting for equal rights but some people make it seem to be about supremacy. I feel like everyone should educate themselves on feminism to understand it better to know that this isn’t about supremacy but wanting equality. 
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think this issue is really important because if the misconception continues, people will negatively view feminism which wouldn’t be so supportive of our goals towards gender equality (SDG 5) and reduce inequalities (SDG 10).” I think this is important because people need to understand how important feminism is especially to bring one another together. Moreover, with people creating misconceptions this will sadly prevent people from wanting to join as they will think it’s about Supremacy when in reality it is about fighting for equality and preventing inequalities.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I really like the way you worded your work and how you provided a video for more. I also found it intriguing that you put questions throughout your post to have people think about it and comment on it if they like.

Dear Kahyun
I am supportive about your Post, “Feminism Does Not Mean Woman Supremacy,” because I see this a lot in our society and I don’t like it because I thought everyone has equality and not hating one and another. “feminism does not mean woman supremacy” and I Agree and all I want is equality to genders and support..
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I think this issue is really important because if the misconception continues, people will negatively view feminism which wouldn’t be so supportive of our goals towards gender equality (SDG 5) and reduce inequalities (SDG 10). ” I think this is hopeful because… There’s hope for equality and if people gave a chance to listen and it will reduce inequalities. Now a days people don’t listen and let people explain and show why but that will be difficult..
Another sentence that I agree was: “Feminism means social movement towards equal rights for all genders. It doesn’t say that we have to hate men and that we have to have better opportunities than men.>” This stood out for me because… more inadept thought in the article and its really creative and interesting to read. Keep up the good inadept thought in your articles and I really enjoy it..

Dear Kahyun

I am very intrigued by your post, since feminism is a topic that always argues with people. The reason why is exactly how you have explained in your post because the misconception of feminism is not only about what does that means but how we let the concept be misinterpreted in our society.
I strongly agree that you said in your post ”  I do not hate men, I value women equally as men, and could be what they describe as “feminine” because it explains the importance of what it means to be equal and not what is being a man or women. In this world still exist misconceptions of having equal rights and fighting for them. Your post and video remind me of the country where I come from, Albania. I have difficulties explaining to people what feminism means and what is important to be equal, usually, I argue with friends there because their idea of “feminism” is not right and women should be all the time after the man and not being able to be a leader or having the same post.
Thank you for your post and it really inspired me to fight the fear of being feminist.
