• It absolutely is.

    While feminism was a totally relevant movement back in the early 1900s, modern feminism has no place in society today. During the fight for women's suffrage, women were clearly oppressed compared to men, but today the same cannot be said. Women are no longer a minority, they have every right that men do, and more often than not, modern feminists are just attention-seekers. Myths like 'rape culture', pay gaps and others have been fabricated, with no obvious purpose other than to aid the attack of men.

  • It is obsolete

    I don't look at my male friends and think "you're rapists" I think that feminism is needed in places like Africa and India where females are actually opressed. The term women is also obsolete because anybody who thinks they are a woman will be called "she" and feminists belong in one place: HELL

  • Yes, it very much is

    I would agree with the feminists if they focused on actual issues (acid throwing, child marriage, etc.) instead they complain about unimportant or non-existent topics on the social media of their choice. Modern feminists also seem to have a distaste for facts and research, and love perpetuating falsehoods such as:

    The pay gap (http://www.Consad.Com/content/reports/Gender%20Wage%20Gap%20Final%20Report.Pdf)

    The "one in five" statistic (http://www.Bjs.Gov/index.Cfm?Ty=pbdetail&iid=5176)

    The lovely logic that "rape culture" exists, because you don't think it exists

    "Women are stopped from going to 'male' fields" (https://youtu.Be/YTOFXLl7eh4) Warning: Norwegian

    And many, many more

    I could go into how hostile feminism is to men (manspreading, #Killallmen, etc.) but we already know that.

    The concept of feminism is good, but it isn't necessary anymore in the civilized world

  • Feminism is obsolete.

    Feminism's first goal was ensuring that woman and men are treated equally and fairly in society. Nowadays, more woman than men are getting accepted into universities and hired into well-paying jobs after graduation because of sexist laws which call for ''affirmative action'', or hiring someone based on their gender/race and not for their merit. Also there is no such thing as a pay gap anymore and anyone who actually believes in such a myth isn't worth listening to because they're just spewing lies. Modern feminism is all about relegating men to a lower social position and making them feel bad about ''rapes'' they didn't commit or other atrocities against women that they apparently ''take part in'' just for having been born male... Feminism is a joke.

  • Not at all

    There is clear gender inequality in society. Women are paid less for the doing the same work. The so-glass ceiling, while broken in many areas, does still exist. Consider the American political situation. Only 20% of US senators are female, and less that 20% of the 114th congress is female. If men and women were considered equal then that kind of inequality would be statistically impossible.

    That said, the feminist movement has largely shot itself in the foot by indulging instead of condemning extremist factions. By failing in the past to soundly condemn “man-haters” and those who lack personal responsibility, feminism has greatly hurt its own cause.

  • It is certainly not.

    Despite what many individuals would think, women are not considered equal to men. Any statistic on average income will show this-women are not paid as much for doing the same job as men, and there is still a considerable amount of prejudice and sexism in the modern world. It is nowhere near as bad as it was when the idea of "feminism" became popular, but it still exists. Many extremist feminists take it too far, that is true but that does not mean that feminism should not exist. In response to the comment about rape culture, the fact that the comment used the term "fabricated" when describing rape proves the opposite point- that rape culture is (apparently) still an issue. That is not to say that there are not cases where men are purposefully considered inferior in some extreme instances, because there certainly are. The actions of a few do not, however, equate to the entire movement being obsolete and irrelevant.
