What confuses you the most about feminism?

People say that there are different ‘types’ of feminism, but don’t all feminists fight for the same thing?

I believe that feminism should be inclusive and intersectional, but I don’t really know what that means or what that looks like in practice.

There is so much history and conflict surrounding feminism – it’s hard to know where the movement came from.

I think feminist solidarity and gender equality are really important to me, but on a personal level, I’m not sure how feminism fits with my identity.

I don’t identify as a woman but I support feminist values. Can I still call myself a feminist?
