There are a variety of ideological groupings which call themselves feminism, and some of them are in contradiction with each other.  As such, one cannot support all types of feminism at the same time.  The FeministWiki is for people who adhere to a relatively straightforward and classical interpretation of feminism: the liberation of female people from male supremacy.  This is sometimes called ''radical feminism'' because male supremacy is a radical notion for many people, and its elimination requires radical changes to society.

Male supremacy refers to social and political systems that use stereotypes, myths, discrimination, belittlement, violence, and other means to keep men in power and women oppressed.  Women are then exploited for reproductive and domestic labor, men's sexual gratification, and more.  Male supremacy also causes collateral damage to some men and boys.  For instance, effeminate boys and gay men are often targeted with severe punishment for failing to uphold the myth that men are inherently masculine.
