Feminism is Wrong

TheBenC
He_Needs_Some_Milk_69

Open to anyone. Start the debate right away. He we gooo! Feminism in it's current form is a terrible sexist movement that needs to die a quick and painful death.

It is about making women superior to men....

ban islam or kill all muslims are the only solution to the sickness of islams existence muslims are not immoral if they have no choice.. islam must be banned from all civilized nations, so that the curse of war becomes clear to muslims, as they will be forced to live in muslims countries or will have to convert to escape that horror prison.. islam is not a religion but a political way of creating a war with no end.. a religion is relied on, while islam is forced on people.. so without a cho...

It is a well-known and very evident fact that movies fall short (sometimes hard on their faces) wh...
