It depends on your definition of feminism. If you mean feminism from the '60's and '70's, then I support it. It's fighting for equality for women. However, modern feminism seems like it's more concerned with superiority than equality. So, the ideal of feminism is something I support, but the modern interpretation is not.
@TigerOnTheProwl This I agree with, too many feminists are extremists recently and it's making real female feminists like me, who only want equality, look bad... People lately have such inferiority complexes.
At the very least Canadian men are willing to talk about it because it is one of the most prominent social issues currently. Not everyone knows what they want feminism to be so some people are given negative ideas about it. I personally feel women should given equally respectful treatment as any person. I easily find that there are many women whose skill and achievements are worth admiring.
I disagree that most feminists are extremists. That's just what the media pushes at us. I mean, they push super negative images of men as predators and I don't just assume all men are predators. The media always shows the extremes. Almost no Canadian woman feels she is inferior to men, which means almost every Canadian woman is a feminist. If almost every Canadian woman is a feminist then most feminists in Canada don't act in that annoying way. The fact that feminism has been twisted to mean man-hating is just another example of how women's issues get twisted to be men's issues. It's ridiculous in my opinion that this conversation turned anti-feminist so fast. Feminism is equality. It's about raising women up to be equal to men. Anyone tearing men down to be less than women are not feminists, they are misandrists, and men who tear women down to be less than men are misogynists. Those are the only definitions. The issue is agreeing that someone who is a misandrist who calls themselves a feminist is in fact representing feminism, and that is an issue with your ignorance of misandry, not the definition of feminism.
