I know it would, but the fact that they shy away from the word feminism is one reason we need it. female tropes are considered as weak and things to be ashamed for (perfect example: women wearing trousers are fine, but men wearing skirts et yelled at, above all from other men)
people need to realise that FEMININ things and feminism is not the enemy, patriarchy is, because the believe that white men stand above everthing is rooted so deep in our society that people get killed because of it every day.
Yeah, there were 'feminists' that hid their true (and fucked up intentions) behind that word, but those were only a few. Same as there are really rude vegans, but I don't hate my friends when they call themselves that :)

We need to unlearn the hatred that's planted so deep within us
(I probably sweared off the topic a few times, sorry, I often have trouble concentrating and getting my thoughts in order)

I just told my flat mate about our discussion and he said he was fed up with me always talking about it, not because he's against feminism, he is a feminist himself, but because he believes that trying to teach sexists/homophobes/transphobes/etc about feminism, is like telling an asshole not to be an asshole - it's a shout into the void.

But I believe I can make a difference! And teaching people that FEMINISM = GENDER EQUALITY is the first step :D

Don't be the product, buy the product!
