"Equality" is not an argument

Can you name one white rights group who says on their mission statement that they are against equality? I don’t think so. 

I can’t believe that I actually have to say this, but throwing around a fluff word like “equality” is not an argument. Maybe they exist, but very few people are going to say outright “I hate equality”. Across all shades of the political spectrum, surprise, you hear people say “I love freedom, liberty, equality, etc.” 

Yet people have debate for centuries about what those terms are. Surprise, you can’t fully represent those concepts on an internet debate or a decontexualized single line about how “you need feminism”. Throwing out a term like equality, acting like you’ve won the debate, and saying that you know people’s own beliefs better than they do doesn’t actually mean you’re right.

So enough with “feminism is equality.” We all need to know what equality is first, thanks.

    Feminists say equality because saying ending sexism is too scary.
