  • It is the definition of anti-feminist

    Actually, it is anti-woman, but clearly anyone who believes that a woman isn't complete unless she wants or has children has a lack of respect and understanding of women. The world would be overpopulated to an even greater extreme if every woman had children, which would cause even more problems.

  • It is anti-feminist.

    Women have the right to choose whether they want to be mothers or not. When President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that women must become mothers in order to be considered complete, he believes in restricting the choices of a mother. By wanting to restrict a woman's choice, his statement is anti-feminist.

  • Yes, it's very sexist.

    Erdogan will never have to be pregnant or give birth, so his statement is very sexist. No one is required to have children or give birth. It should be a personal decision. You can definitely live a "complete" life without having children, whether you are a man or a woman.

  • Yes, it is

    Yes and good for him. Feminism is sexism,plain and simple, and there is no room in the world today for sexist statements, right? The sword cuts both ways and if men cannot be sexist then neither should women be allowed to be. Equality sounds great until you have to actually be equal
