In this day and age feminism has become a hot topic and somewhat a trend so regardless of whether one knows the meaning of it or not, they call themselves that. Many have have simply labeled themselves feminist to escape the onslaught of criticism they’d undoubtedly receive if they said otherwise.
According to the oxford dictionary, feminism is:
The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.
A lot of social media warriors twist and turn the meaning of the word for their own gain and sometimes even feuds are started about its meaning in different contexts.
Furthermore, we have this disease of just wanting to prove ourself right whether we are right or wrong. We want to prove the other party that we are much more intelligent than them and so we can win against them even if what we stand for is wrong.
Quratulain Balouch, the famous Pakistani singer-songwriter had enough of it and decided out to call out the bogus feminists and intellectuals in her tweet:
