Con

Radical Feminism has been more abundant recently.

There is one case where there was a protest outside of a lecture hall at the University of Toronto. Radical Feminists blocked the entrance of the building. One person tried to enter the building and was denied access and humiliated by the protesters. That person was looking for closure after two of his friends committed suicide.

Radical Feminism is usually criticized for believing that men are the ultimate source of women oppression. The "patriarchy" , laws created by men, are not the reason women are in "oppression", it is the gender roles created as a whole society which creates harm to both genders.

(Not true ,but stupid common stereotypes)

"Females are physically weak" causes the gender role of males being strong protectors.
If males are not "manly" they get criticized by males and females.

"Males always want sexual intercourse" causes men to believe that they want sex, and the stereotype stops them from reporting rape. "He probably liked it"

Radical Feminism does not address these utterly important points. There is active sexism against men too and Radical Feminism harms and adds to the stereotypes of men.

Pro

You have not stated any rules; therefore I will act as I please in this round.

Definition

Radical feminism-is a perspective within feminism that focuses on the hypothesis of patriarchy as a system of power that organizes society into a complex of relationships based on the assertion that male supremacy oppresses women.

Harmful Protests

There is many cases of harmful protests with radical feminists. Namely,

and

https://www.youtube.com...

In these videos, we are able to see the harm radical feminism has done. From blocking entrances/exits to pulling a fire alarm, much harm has happened with with radical feminists.
This clearly shows the one case of harm done by radical feminists.

Ruining The Movement

Radical feminism is constantly having others believe feminism is a terrible movement. We can see comments from this video https://www.youtube.com...

The more of this crap that I see, the more I think feminism is a terrorist group.

Feminists would like to think that they are all about equal rights, but there is already a name for those people, they are called egalitarians, something which feminists are not.


As we see in these comments, many are bashing the movement of feminism as well as being confused by radical feminists and feminists. To these people, feminism will look like a terrible cause and one which will seem distasteful.



Rebuttals
I believe my opponent is confused. I am on the side of pro, meaning I am trying to prove radical feminism is hurting more than helping. You, as con, are trying to prove otherwise. Your argument helps my case.

Conclusion

A number of sources show radical feminism is hurting more than helping.

LOL OMG IM SO STUPID I cant believe I was on the con side. This was my first debate on this site, and also I posted this before I looked at other debates. I should have known the proper etiquette. I was wandering do you really agree with it, because I argue this with my friends and they get all pissed off at me, so I came here.
