Words ... meaning and feminism

"If you look at feminist in dictionary, it means some one who believes in equals rights of men and women... .......that word is weirdly used in our culture that some women think if you say you are a feminist that some women is going to start yelling at them............but that is how words work oh yeah I am a doctor that does primarily does disease of the skin. Oh so you are dermatologist? Oh no thats way to aggressive word for me....."

I really laughed out loud when I first heard the above comedy bit. Then thought some more, it is still funny but I am not signing up for the feminist tag and continue to believe in equal rights for all, cutting across the stereotypes.

The problem as he partially explained is that the word feminism has been usurped to mean various other things including hatred for men. Like the word Pro-life - a simple meaning word that has been abused by the wrong people.
