Is "feminist" a bad word?

I'm going to keep my opinion out of this because I want to know your honest opinions. Is feminist a bad word? Does it have a negative connotation in your mind? Why or why not?

    I think that over the years it has developed a bad reputation. Mostly from people who have pushed their agenda versus fighting for equality. I think that it has gone from being about fair and equal treatment for women to more of women are better than men...that is not the message I ever want to present to my kids.

    Exactly...it's a good thought that has just gone wrong. It would be nice to have an organization or movement that stuck true to it's idea.
