Feminazi

Feminazi:
"Feminazi is a term popularized by radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh and in use since the early 1990s. It is a portmanteau of the nouns feminist and Nazi. The online version of the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the term as used in a "usually disparaging" manner, to describe "an extreme or militant feminist". The term is used pejorativelyby some U.S. conservatives to criticize feminists that they perceive as extreme."
I really hate this word. Almost anyone who uses it? Uses it only to discredit feminism/women if they're discussing their rights in a manner that doesn't please them. Feminazi is an insulting way to instantly discredit anything a woman has to say next. It requires no skill to use, and a woman doesn't actually have to be a feminist to suddenly be termed a feminazi. If you're a woman, and you're speaking your mind, you are automatically a feminazi.
A lot of people tend to use this term for misandrists (women who hate men). What do we call men who hate women and try to police their rights? Usually, something along the lines of Mr. Senator or Father. The truth is, men controlling women don't have a derogatory term that can be applied to them---that's because if a man who acts hateful of the opposite sex, that's normal.
Remember when I wrote about the Nice Guys? They're huge on this. They tend to think their entitled on calling a woman a bitch or a slut or a girl who only dates douchebags if they don't agree or try to have a romantic/sexual relationship with the supposed "nice guy". Their misunderstood! They just want a nice girl to love! Well, the first start to loving a woman, hun, is to start treating her like one. Not some lifeless piece of cardboard that's there to please you and suck your cock. Trust me, I know those ones. For men who are surprised by this (which I highly doubt you are, given), don't be. Women have to put up with this shit all the time. Woman is a human being, same as you, and she has the rights to her choices on her body and mind. If she doesn't want to have a relationship or sex with you, don't be mad. If you do get mad, then this is probably a sign that you are exactly the problem I am talking about.
So stop using the word feminazi to a woman who voices their rights, and maybe start listening to what they have to say before you try to shut off their ideas from you with one word.
