There's a word for that, it's called egalitarianism (or equalism if you prefer). I don't buy the idea that feminism is anything but trying to empower women. And that's totally fine. It's just disingenuous at best to suggest it's anything more than that, that it's working to help men too, especially considering modern feminism's propensity for tearing men down more than boosting women up. I feel like every gender issue gets lumped under the umbrella of "feminism" simply because feminism is so popular and pervasive in modern society that it's the only term most people can think to use. Sure, all issues are both men's and women's issues in the very broad sense that men and women interact, but that doesn't really say anything.Another thing MRA talking points tend to do is paint themselves as 'separate from' feminist issues when they often are not. So I recall reading a previous post here where someone talked about all of these really great things, like fighting heteronormativity, letting boys be more feminine, not defining mens' worth by how much sex they have, and so on. But then, randomly, they said something like "Nobody's talking about this!" And of course that's not true at all, feminism most certainly does deal with all that sort of stuff.
I actually think a lot of young men are getting taken advantage with this, it makes me sad. I don't know if this is a common thing, but I remember talking with one guy who was sort of just getting into MRA stuff (like a sincere guy, he wasn't some opportunistic alt-right guy or anything). He's a feminist now because I guess someone showed him that, hey, a lot of these ideas you're talking about are actually repackaged feminism.
Though at the end of the day, it's all semantics and if most people are too dumb to call equality "equality" instead of "feminism," then uhh yeah sure whatever man, I'm a feminist too. But I don't want to be called that.
