The definition of equality, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is “the quality or state of being equal; the quality or state of having the same rights, social status, etc.” In the social and particularly feminist quest for equality, it’s important to recognize another facet of equality: we want women to enjoy the same rights and status as men have, not to bring men to the degrading level we are on. For example, you can find a number of videos (like “Blurred Lines”) where the genders of male and female have been swapped, and men are placed in a degrading, minimizing standpoint. While the common cry here is “It feels bad, doesn’t it?” it’s important to remember that this is supposed to be educational, not punishment. Feminism does not advocate any degradation, regardless of gender. To use an analogy, bullying the bully only creates a greater divide between two groups, and stalls any effort to eliminate the bullying as a whole.
