Why feminism or masculine-ism is a wrong perspective in the modern sense?? Feminism, in the sense; the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men. Alternatively, Women Rights Moment. Although, Feminism basically represents ‘the equality of women.’ now-a-days, it’s more of free will and freedom to commit crimes against men by women. It’s irony that our society doesn’t believe men gets raped too. Recently, a boy in Sweden got raped by radicals, which resulted in riots. A friend of mine told me that gays tried to molest him. This doesn’t mean we support crimes done by men or any human. Crimes committed by women against men rarely gets justice.
Society blindly believes ‘Mard ko dard nahi hoga’(Men will never experience pain). Such radical notions are a huge threat to ‘Humanity’. Recently, we heard about the death of Bollywood Actor Sushant Singh Rajputh. We also know heard about Rhea Chakraborthy & drug mafia going on India. Despite this, we blindly believe in various social stigmas. All these incidents remind us of a huge threat to humanity. So, Feminism or Masculine-ism is all biased, and often misused to get undue benefits. Can we use ‘Gender equality’ instead of biased above mentioned terms??
History of Feminism:
The 19th and early 20th century feminist activity in the English-speaking world that sought to win woman's suffrage, female education rights, better working conditions, and abolition of gender double standards is known as first-wave feminism. The term "first-wave" was coined retrospectively when the term second-wave feminism was used to describe a newer feminist movement that fought social and cultural inequalities beyond basic political inequalities. In the United States, feminist movement leaders campaigned for the national abolition of slavery and Temperance before championing woman's rights. American first-wave feminism involved a wide range of women, some belonging to conservative Christian groups (such as Frances Willard and the Woman's Christian Temperance Union), others resembling the diversity and radicalism of much of second-wave feminism (such as Stanton, Anthony, Matilda Joslyn Gage, and the National Woman Suffrage Association, of which Stanton was president). Eventually campaign for gender equality also started in UK, Persia, etc. Anti-slavery campaign of United States of the 1830s served as both a cause ideologically compatible with feminism and a blueprint for later feminist political organizing.

Greatness of Women:
Yatra Naryastu Ramanthe Poojathe Tatra deevataaha.
Demi-Gods cherish and worship the place where women are present & respected.
The above Vedic quote signifies the significance of women.
Adverse effects: Eventually, ‘Feminism’ or ‘Masculine-ism’, became biased and individuals have had been manipulating law & using this gender bias as means of unethical living. Pseudo-intellectuals started to manipulate terms organized campaigns, protests to create unrest, which ultimately has become a huge threat to humanity. There’s no one to fight for humanity, every one are associated with some or the other stereotypical cult as ‘anti-racists, feminists, patriots, religious, spiritual etc. We have forgot the very thing that’s common to all of us that’s ‘Humanity’. There’s nothing wrong in getting associated with groups, it’s human tendency, as long as we don’t become Radicals and pose threat to Society and most importantly Humanity.
“Feminism or Masculine-ism, shouldn’t be a way of unethical & malicious living.”
Natasha Devon, Telegraph says:
‘At the end of the session, one of the Society's senior members said: "It's great that you don't think there's any misogyny in your world, but I think if you talked to these men for long enough you'd find there were some pretty sinister ideas about women buried somewhere beneath the surface."
In that moment, I suddenly realised why so many aspects of the modern feminist movement in Britain irritate me so much. Don't misunderstand, I'd consider myself a feminist and I'm all for structural changes which ensure equal treatment of the sexes - the types that are working to ensure we have an equal number of female MPs and laws to prevent female genital mutilation, for example. But cultural "feminist" changes, the types that insist lads mags, Page 3 and wolf-whistling are automatically offensive and should therefore be scrapped from the public consciousness, I have always struggled to comprehend. For, at their crux is the notion that men are either genetically or socially conditioned to be evil. This explains why relatively harmless acts - an admiring glance, a whistle, a propensity for lads mags - are imbued with such weighty significance, often lazily labelled as "rapey".’
This clearly gives an idea how feminism is getting manipulated?
It doesn’t mean women are not suffering. Men dominate women, we have been hearing of a series of rape cases starting from ‘Nirbhaya’, Justice has been delivered to most of the victims. In Manusmriti, it’s given that; ‘Persons who kill, rape, & who are corrupt, who poison others, who confiscate others’ property should be hanged.’ In fact, a lot of agitation has been going on in twitter about hanging rapists.
‘Whether you fight for gender-equality or anything, remember you are fighting for humanitarian values.’
The balance of yin and yang is important. If yin is stronger, yang will be weaker, and vice versa. Yin and yang can interchange under certain conditions so that they are usually not yin and yang alone. In other words, yin elements can contain certain parts of yang, and yang can have some components of yin. This balance of yin and yang is perceived to exist in everything. Then only Chi energy balances and rises within.
Although, it doesn’t got any nexus with genders, it has to be accepted that the characteristics are opposite & are much prevalent in any individuals irrespective of gender, race, etc.
Yin-Yang signifies the notion;
'Human race & Humanity prevails with balance between the opposing forces.'
Vedic explanations on Yin-Yang:
As per the Vedic philosophy & Ayurveda, there are about 108 Nadis in our body.
Nāḍī (Sanskrit: नाडी, lit. 'tube, pipe, nerve, blood vessel, pulse') is a term for the channels through which, in traditional Indian medicine and spiritual knowledge, the energies such as Prana of the physical body, the subtle body and the causal body are said to flow. Within this philosophical framework, the nadis are said to connect at special points of intensity, the chakras.The three principal nadis run from the base of the spine to the head, and are the ida on the left, the sushumna or Brahma Nadi in the centre, and the pingala on the right.

If you look closely at the above info & compare with the Yin-Yang, we could find similarities. What was Yin? happens to be Pingala, what was Yang? Happens to be Yang. Chi energy is Prana(Life force). Similarly, we could find many concepts that are common to Buddhism & Sanatana Dharma.
In the current context, men & women are having different abilities & challenges. Our society has assigned certain responsibilities as humans. Primary among them is ‘living & earning in such a way, so that it doesn’t affect society.’
‘The Greatest service you could ever do to society is unifying mankind.’
It’s absolutely unobjectionable that we are equal as humans, irrespective of our gender, caste, religion, race, nationality & we don’t have to justify it unnecessarily.
‘Respect humans for humanity, not for their associations like gender, race etc.’
