They aren't just claiming to be feminists; they are feminists. It's all about microaggressions, safe spaces, and agenda pushing now.

The same people who attacked TFYC for wanting more women in game development? Not a very feminist thing to do.

If you can't tell I'm struggling to let go of the definition that has been used for hundreds of years.

Then you're struggling to understand history and how feminism hasn't changed one bit.

Middle class white women who don't like other people having fun? Check! Better ban alcohol and coffee houses because they distract from the womens!

Men not wanting to go into the meat grinder that is a world war? Well fuck them, better get some white feathers and start shaming any man not wearing a military uniform on the street.

Feminism hasn't changed. Remember "The winners write history" and consider everything you know about GOOD FEMINISM to be a lie, because it mostly is.

Anita Sarkeesian gave a TED talk, had an appearance on the Colbert Report, and made it into Time magazine's top 100 people of the year. Rolling Stone falsely accused a college frat for harboring a rapist and got away with it without having to change any of their editorial policies or discipline any of their employees. Ellen Pao was fawned over by the Guardian, the New York Times, and pretty much every non-right wing aligned newspaper for being an icon of feminism struggling against Wall Street misogyny even after nine out of twelve jurists agreed that she was full of shit.

The feminism that pushed for equal rights is dead. Now, it's all about infantilizing women + crying that they're being victimized so the SJWs can score points against the non-existent patriarchy.

Yeah when someone tells me they're a feminist the spectrum of beliefs they might have now range from the reasonable to deluded

Whoa, you're right. If they were just claiming to be feminists while doing nasty shit, they would have been banned by now. They are systemically protected while having the bullshit shield of "not real feminists".

Meanwhile I don't even remember the last time when I heard anything from "real feminism".
