There are so many misconceptions when it comes to feminism as people have come to see it as a negative thing because of the connotations people have put on it.

1~ Being feminist does not mean we want to be superior to men!!

The common misconception is that feminist means woman want to be superior to men as we have been inferior for so long. THIS IS NOT FEMINISM! Feminism is the pursuit and advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.

We need to teach our sons and daughters this message if we want to change the world

2~ Being feminist doesn't make you a man hater

Feminism isn't about hating men, that's called Misandry!
It's so sad to hear when people refuse to call themselves feminist because they think that means hating on men, that is not what being feminist is about!

3 ~ Feminists Are A Stuck Up, Crazy, And A Touchy Bunch

That's like saying all football players are stuck up, dumb jocks
or that all netball players are catty bitches
or all artists are smokers and druggos
or that all gamers are geeks and have pimples

4 ~ Feminists Cannot Be Stereotypically ‘Feminine’

Being a feminist does not mean that you dont like to dress up and wear heels, it does not mean that we don't like to be given compliments, it does not mean that we don't like to be given surprises by men, what it means is that we know when a man opens the door for us it's out of politeness not that he thinks we can't do it for our selves.
If a women's dream is to be a housewife and stay at home mum, good on her
If she wants to go out and own her own business or play sport for a living, good on her
If a man wants to be a stay at home dad or a cook, good on him

if he wants to own his own business and go out and work every day or play sports for a living, good on him

Look at gender on a spectrum not as two individual groups fighting each other!

5~ Men cant be feminists

Feminism is about equality between the genders...
there for a male who is a feminist is fighting for equality between the genders
and a female who is a feminist is fighting for equality between the genders
they are both the same thing
gender doesn't matter
