Being wary of Fake feminism

“Feminism,” as per the Oxford English Dictionary, is the belief and aim that women should have the same rights and opportunities as men. It has nothing to do with man-hating, gender-bending, or anything else. It’s just female advocacy. When people begin to stray from the main point of feminism and use it as an agenda, it turns into the belief of “fake feminism.”

There are feminists, and then there are fake feminists. Fake feminism says that women should be respected more or that people of other sexes should not be respected as much. The worst thing about living in a culture where women face many problems every day is that some people hurt the word “feminism.” Few people on social media know much about feminism, so they end up being fake feminists.
