In the "Characterization Marches On" section, the usage of the word "feminist" is completely unecessary. Feminism is not synonymous with gender equality - it is a specific group/movement which, in our modern society, is incredibly flawed. One can be for women's rights and not be a feminist.

I put this here because I want TV Tropes to understand and hopefully tweak their vocabulary in the future.

Actually, "feminist" is the usual term for people engaging for women's rights.

Perhaps, but it's unecessary here. Like I said before, one is only a feminist if they outright state they are. Assuming otherwise is like automatically pigeonholeing anyone for animal rights with PETA.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
