"You can't believe in equality for both genders and/or sexes unless you share MY definition. It doesn't matter what you honestly believe or say you believe or that you act upon those beliefs. But that you have the same title as me."

It's not my definition it is the one that the language has adapted into that term, it's like saying "I'm a television" while i may have a separate definition for the word that definition is not widely known and in terms of verbal or written discourse using it as such creates confusion wasting time and effort when i can use more accurate and established terms to better portray what it is that i believe myself to be.

"It's not my definition it is the one that the language has adapted into that term"
Then by that point, you can't honestly say what it is. Because I'm fairly certain not everyone shares the same grand definition that you do for what a feminist is.
" it's like saying "I'm a television" while i may have a separate definition for the word that definition is not widely known and in terms of verbal or written discourse using it as such creates confusion"
Honestly you can't compare a solid object to an entire mindset/ideology. That's the problem these labels and terms produce, they're trying to take complex issues, and make them simple so people can say what they want about them, without actually thinking. This is prevalent by the U.S.'s 2 party dichotomy.
"when i can use more accurate and established terms to better portray what it is that i believe myself to be."
That's what you should do, instead of saying "I am an egalitarian" because what you say is an egalitarian may mean something different to me, then to someone else, and so on and so forth. We should put forward ideas, not labels.

<<------ this i use this to tell me what a feminist is, anything past that is defined by other labels and words that can also be found there.

I compared them as a bit of a hyperbole but the point is still valid and wasn't addressed, if you take a label you claim that you share the beliefs of that label/ideology, for example you could claim to be a christian all that tells me is you believe in Jesus Christ, if you wish to be know for more that just that one point you must use other terms and labels so you aren't writing a book to cover what can be said in a few bullet points when there is no term or label define a point.

<<--- this again if you do not know the meaning of a word you should not just make one up, an egalitarian is someone who believes everyone is equal and should have equal rights, if you find my definition to be flawed check the book there is a reason it's there.

I highly doubt that considering that's a Latin dictionary that uses "Lorem Ipsum" which is specifically used to make no sense.
But honestly, once again, there's the issue of one books definition changing from another's.

Dictionary.com 's definition:
adjective
1.
asserting, resulting from, or characterized by belief in the equality of all people, especially in political, economic, or social life.
Oxford Dictionary's definition:
adjective
Of, relating to, or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities:

Now, lets say you believe that all people believe are equal and deserve equal rights.
And lets say I believe all people are equal, but do not deserve equal rights.

Am I still an egalitarian? Am I not? Your answer, and my answer, and someone else's answer may differ quite a lot.

"this again if you do not know the meaning of a word you should not just make one up"
I don't think so either. You should present ideas as they are, ideas, instead of a blanket label for people to assign their own definitions to. Because people certainly will.
" if you find my definition to be flawed check the book there is a reason it's there."
Oh yes. Let me check the "Lorem Ipsum" dictionary.
Oh wait, its a Latin poem that's been heavily altered to make no sense, and is only used in graphic design to show how text would appear.

I actually completely agree with your feelings on the term feminist. Share most of those sentiments too. Of course there are definitely male feminists, and at times I would say I am one of them. But at the same time...I don't want to be called a fucking feminists because if it's truly for equality shouldn't it use a word that includes both genders? (And I guess for all those wacky what are they called..."animalkin", all genders? Know what I mean?)

And also yeah I am sure there are dudes out there that use "I'm a guy and a feminist! Fuck!" as a means to get some action. There also some guys out there that completely throwaway their self-respect and say shit that people want to hear, but not what they truly think. Those type of people just piss me off.

If you completely agree you should use the term egalitarian it's a better word and is more accurate.

Yeah i agree that there are people who can be born male and feel more like a female and it's brilliant that sex changes are a thing for them most of the time this comes down to something medical causing hormones to work differently for that person the whole more that one gender thing is stupid and as well you either have a penis or a vagina your gender counts on that if you're a man who wants to be a woman then you are a pre-op man not a woman if you were a woman you wouldn't need a sex change and vise-versa.
