Why do so many women claim to be feminist when they are not?

Why pretend? What's the point?

    The easiest way to get into a feminist's pants is to pretend to be an "ally".

    It's less a pretense then them not knowing what the hell the word means. Any man who calls himself a feminist does the same thing.

    "Why do so many women claim to be feminist when they are not?"

    Because feminism is purposefully left undefined by the feminsts that hold positions of power in the feminist movement. This works to their advantage because the only definition for feminism comes from 100 year old classic feminism which was defined as the advocacy for women to obtain equal Rights.  Now ... who is NOT on board for women to have equal Rights anywhere in the first world??  No one, and that's exactly the point.

    So while that outdated definition for feminism is no longer the reality for the current misandrist feminist movement, the movement will gladly accept anyone and everyone who is willing to call themselves a feminists no matter what they believe in, for numerical support.

    A person who believes in equality for women is really just a common, everyday person today in the West.  A feminist on the other hand is something quite different.  This again, all comes down to definitions.  And speaking of definitions, even feminists themselves cannot seem to agree what "feminism" actually means. This is obvious to anybody who hangs around forums like these where you can see equality minded feminists defending the man-hating radical feminists just because they both call themselves feminists.

    If a truly equality minded woman is a feminist, but also a man-hating radical is a feminist too, then we should NOT hop onto a cause where it is possible to promote hate. Modern day feminism lends itself to that possibility.

    If they claim they are, then most likely they are and that's all we can say about it. People don't usually put themselves ina specific group if they can't back it up.

    Who are you to say someone isn't what they claim to be? Have you interviewed them and discussed their beliefs with them? A feminist is simply someone who believes in equality between the sexes.

    I don’t know. I am a feminist because I think men are not needed in any society except for heavy lifting. They are only needed for jobs that require lifting heavy objects and doing risky jobs like coal mining. Can’t wait for artificial sperm so that we can eliminate men from procreation.

    To hide their misandry. Feminism is the excuse of women to hide their misandrist attitude.

    Feminism has no definition. Anyone can believe anything and call themselves a feminist. They range from egalitarians to flat out misandrists.

    A better question is whats their blood type. 45% of population is blood type O and 35% are blood type A and 15% are blood type B and 5% are blood type AB.

    blood type O feminists are stereotypical feminist like what you described

    blood type A feminists tend to be quite judging, but a bit more academic
