I am arguing that feminism is a dumb movement and serves no valuble purpose in the modern landscape. I am refering to the dictionary.com definition of feminism: the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men. My reasons are as follows:
1. There is NO legal right that women have over men
2. Women get full custody rights over a man in the case of a divorce
3. If a women steals a mans sperm, she can sue him for child support
4. Feminists shut down a male suicide convention
5. Feminism only helps women
6. 75% of suicides are male
7. 84% of homocides are male
8. 99% of war deaths are male
9. Serious issues women face are ignored by feminists (women not being able to show their face in public in some 3rd world countries is one)
10. The wage gap is a myth that has been debunked many times for the following reasons: men take less time off, competitiveness, ask for raises more often, work higher paying jobs (no this is not sexism, this is good life choices), hours in the office, etc.
11. The term "mansplaining" is a sexist term
12. The majority of body shaming is by women
13. Feminism endorses movements that are terrible (fat acceptance is one)
14. Feminism rejects facts
15. Feminists will complain about the STEM field even though women have a 2/3 acceptance over men
16. The 8% rape claims is false statistic is from a 1996 FBI paper that also says 33% have a lack of evidence (which means they are likely false)
17. Male children are mroe likely to be abused than females
18. Mothers are twice as likely to abuse children than fathers.

If you do accept this debate, please, DO NOT say that I'm sexist or that I'm stupid. Win the debate with facts and statistics. That being said, hit me with all you've got.

I think that feminism should be in order because women are the best of many of the genders. We all know there are many genders but women are the top of the food chain! #Hillary4president

All of my arguments are on my previous round. To summarize them, women have equal rights and any indiference within social constructs is equalized with disadvantages that men have. Women actually have MORE legal right than men.

I am arguing against first world feminism. The movement, not individuals.

By the looks are you talking about feminazi or just feminism in general?

I'm not interested in responding to a gish gallop. Please restrict yourself to, at the outside, 5 points per round and actually develop them.
