The good feminism;
First wave feminism: Suffrage/right to vote for women.
Second wave feminism: Reproductive rights, legal inequalities, marital violence/rape issues, workplace issues etc.
The bad feminism;
Third/Fourth wave feminism: Patriarchy conspiracy, regretting consensual sex the next day is rape, white men are evil, men's testicles aren't allowed to take space between their legs on public transport (manspreading), men can consent when intoxicated but women cant, public shaming and boycotting people who disagree, imaginary wage gap that no serious economist takes seriously, teaching boys not to be boys, general man hating, even benign compliments constitute harassment.
edit: Sorry, I guess I couldn't describe it without a touch of childish inflammatory opinion, but it's accurate and true and pretending the Emma Watsons of the world are the real face of feminism today is simply disingenuous.

... is it possible that there are extreme cases being given far more weight than the aggregate would suggest, and this is 'flavoring' everyone's opinions on it thusly (both for and against)?
