Hello there, today I will be arguing on a debate that has been appearing in this site a lot. And I though I would partake of it as well. Today I will be arguing about Feminism and how feminism is cancer and is how most feminist are sexist towards men. Here are my arguments.

-People say that the feminist who act sexist towards means are actually feminazi. First of all, if you actually look at the definition of feminazi, it saying that feminazies are radical feminist. Which means that they still are feminist. It also annoys me how people say that feminism isn't cancer because feminism is supposed to mean equality between men and women. When most of the time the people who say that are sexist themselves. Also I think that people should instead be an egalitarian rather than a feminist. Egalitariansm is much better than feminism since they don't JUST include equality between men and women, but they include equality between everyone.

- I also just wanted to clarify that I'm not saying that all feminist are horrible. I'm just saying that there are a lot of feminist who are.

- One thing I'm predicting that the con may bring up is the gender pay gap. But this has been proven false on many occasions. Here are some examples

- I would also like to add( if it hasn't already been added) is that if woman have been getting payed less than men, than wouldn't the companies that were doing this get sued because of the equal pay act passed on in 1963?

-Now I agree that there is still some sexism and abuse towards woman. Like woman in the middle east getting stoned to death because of genital mutilation. Other than that, there really aren't any more sexist problems to be solve for woman.

-There are a lot of feminist who complain about a lot of things about somehow being sexist. In this video that I'm about to show you, we're going to have a feminist who is complaining about why toys are sexist. Here's the link.

Ok so here are some of the points this person is trying to make in the video

-She's complaining on how whenever she goes to the girls section, there's all of these pink everywhere and a bunch of barbies and dolls. But whenever she goes to the boy section, there a bunch of monster trucks, cars, and action figures. She's saying that she hates the "girly" thinks and that the world is telling girls that you have to like this and boys you have to like that. Well first of all, the reason that there is so much pink and so many dolls is that because the majority of girls like those. People wouldn't be selling stuff that they don't like. Same with the boys, the majority of boys like those cars and monster trucks. But there are some boys who like dolls and there are some girls who like cars. I understand that. Some of my best friends who are boys like the color pink and some of my girl best friends like to play sports and video games.

-Another thing feminist might want to complain about is how woman receive so much abuse and pain from men. When actually, it's the men that receive more abuse. Statistics show that other than rape, men have a higher chance of being affected by any other crime.

- Imagine a very amazing, nicely polished, expensive, and large house. That house can represent old feminism. Now imagine that same house but with a HUGE amount of termites in it. Those termites represent the average feminist. Now imagine pest control, those are the good feminist. The pest control is trying to save the house, both it can't. The termites are to strong. There's no saving the house. The house now looks very worn down and ugly. That's modern feminism. There are too many radical feminist to be able to restore feminism to want it once was. That's why, in the end, it's better to just burn the house.

Well, that's all I have for now. And as always, I wish my opponent good luck.

Cancer: An abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, in some cases, to metastasize (spread).

Feminism: The advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Is: Used as to describe equals.

By definitions, feminism does not equal cancer. Despite the horrendous consequences of these two disastrous things, feminism doesn't attack and kill the host's body, it destroys the host's brain cells as well as other people's not under the harshness of this plague. Furthermore, as my opponent admits, the difference between feminism and cancer is... Cancer can be cured, feminism can't and must be destroyed by means of fire.

First of all, why did you even accept this debate? Second of all, the expression "Feminism is cancer" is a metaphor. Learn your figurative language.

I would also like to ask the voters not to vote for anyone because the con didn't counter any of my arguments and still hasn't actually said if he/she is a feminist or not. This means that either the con counters my arguments, or I will forfeit this debate and ask the voters not to vote.
