To me, feminism can be summed up with this quote;
"Men, their rights and nothing more.
Woman, their rights and nothing less."
The gender graduation rate in high school, 84% (girls) 77% (boys).
Modern feminism is about fighting for women to have all the benefits of being a man, and none of the drawbacks.

'Equality' - to me - is a matter of being treated equal in various ways by people like employers [when we're assigned and accomplish the same tasks] and the law [here the law just can't make up its mind - drunk sex, for example, is unfairly applied to men and women, giving man this concept of 'authority' or 'superior states of inebriation' in which they're held more responsible for their actions]. But beyond things like that, it's case-by-case, depending on the interpretation and application of that term.
Anything that tries to diminish femininity and undervalue my choices I've made as a stay at home mother offend me to the utmost and don't represent feminism - but it furthers a prejudice against women. I've probably bitched about that more in my life than anything else, as well as how poorly many women who are 'uber-feminist' look down on males.
