I am a feminist

Before you faint, explode, celebrate or whatever, read my description. This word, it may not mean what you think it means.

My definition of feminism is a desire for women to be treated as human beings, no more, and no less. It is not a desire to deny the biological differences between men and women, it’s not a desire for men to be treated as second class citizens. It’s a desire for women and men to be subjected to equal expectations within their capabilities, no unreasonable or unfounded assumptions of capabilities or limitations based on gender, and no expectations based on a preconceived notion of what your interests, tendencies, talents or preferences are because of your gender.

Just wanted to clear that up, and have the definition written for a quick link as a handy reference next time I rant about stuff that annoys me.
