Political, economic, personal, and social equality between men and women was defined and established by a variety of sociopolitical groups and philosophies that have long been associated with feminism. The term “feminism” dates back to 1895. Women battled back then for a variety of causes, including equal pay, equal rights, and an equal share of property. What we witness today is post-feminism, a time when women have already attained the objectives of the first and second waves of feminism while criticising the risky objectives of the third and fourth waves, which pose an existential threat to human society in many nations. Even though they identify as feminists, famous people and authors including Camille Paglia, Christina Hoff Sommers, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Lisa Lucile Owens, and Daphne Patai disagree with some aspects of feminism. For instance, they contend that radical feminist viewpoints are detrimental to both men and women and that feminism frequently encourages misandry and the elevation of women’s interests over men’s.

What is Pseudo-Feminism

Since 1996, fake or pseudo-feminism has been gaining ground in various nations, including India. Politicians, elements opposed to the nation, terrorists supported by the state, and even Marxists all had a part in the development of phony or pseudo-feminism. The fact that women’s income tax slab is greater than men’s is an example of fake feminism. A woman is exempt from paying taxes if her income is between $3,000 and $5,000,000. Why should just males pay taxes if both sexes earn the same amount of money? In several nations, women are also entitled to free rides, free medical care, and free food at certain establishments. The entire goal of feminism has been undermined by all of this.

Equal treatment ceased in fake feminism

Every victim should be treated equally if true feminism were to be practiced. Victims would cease to be male or female but only victims of abuse. However, this is regrettably untrue. While administering justice, Indian Family Courts and Indian Criminal Courts exhibit a morally reprehensible and unethical prejudice towards women. Abuse of the law favours women. Pseudo-feminism asserts that either women are more deserving of respect or that individuals of other sexes are not. Pseudo-feminists are also called “feminazis” on the Internet by keyboard warriors; these people are people who do not fully understand what feminism is and who search for evidence of injustice and violence when none exists.

Feminists have begun to use it as a tool to oppress people of different genders, namely males and other women who support equality for all. 53.2% of the rape cases reported in a 2014 study by the Delhi Commission of Women (DCW) were untrue. And when it soars to 90%, the percentage is only going to increase. In Indian courts, the number of fake cases is rising. The harm is so great that these situations are now a factor in our fragile society and weak economy. Governmental organisations currently exist in nations like Brazil, China, Russia, Japan, and the USA to combat and eradicate this pseudo-feminism.
