It’s wrong to demand equality because it will otherwise lead to the destruction of the long-held patriarchal notions which indoctrinated certain rights and liberties to women as a matter of pity.

We, humans, need one group within ourselves to be submissive to maintain the ridiculous sexist balance we always celebrated.

Feminism has always been about equality and the upliftment of a gender that was otherwise discriminated against for centuries.

If you think it is wrong, it’s only because of the fear of giving up on the hidden luxuries you enjoyed under the veils of patriarchy for all these centuries.

So nope, nothing is wrong with today’s feminism. It’s on point and the proof of that is the fear, the movement exerts on patriarchy and patrons of patriarchy.
