Females are born. The stereotypical roles, behaviors and appearance of women varies across different cultures. No female is born with the knowledge that she should grow long hair, apply makeup, dress in skirts and heels, smile sweetly, speak softly and provide caretaking to men.

Actions and behaviors which promote males and male-dominated social systems are not feminism. Women who value and promote the rights and protection of men over women in any circumstance or situation are not feminists.
