"Modern feminism is riddled with false information such as the wage gap, and shirtless protesting is stupid and idiotic. When a man wears a shirt with a half naked woman on it, feminists say he can't wear it, but when feminists get accused of wearing sexual and/ or provocative clothing, they say they can wear whatever they want? Which one is it feminists? Lets be honest here, if you really care about women's rights, go to a third world country and help out women with NO rights." -collinator405 For most of what he said I'm all for and I don't quite understand feminism because it is always contradicting or so I believe.

My opponent's opening argument was more of a non-sensical rant you would expect from a reactionary anti-feminist.

1. The wage gap is not a myth.[1][2][3][4][5]
2. Men wearing shirts of half-naked women have no taste. (Though they clearly have a right to wear it.)
3. Women who dress like sluts have no taste. (Though they clearly have a right to wear it.)

Outside of this, my opponent has made no argument related to modern feminism.

I believe the argument he wants to make here is that modern feminism is contradictory at best. Women wish to be accepted in their new roles in society as equals and not as the traditional house wife, care giver, submissive woman. Yet those same women would hold men to a traditional standard when it comes any interaction between the two sexes. For example many women still believe a man should be the aggressor during dating, should protect a women, should pay for first dates. etc. In short I think he's trying to say women are trying to "have their cake and eat it too".

I agree with your statement. As a woman I understand where they are coming from but, as you said they do make confusing arguments.

Are you asking for someone to education you on feminism?

or

Are you looking to debate the principles of Modern Feminism vs Fringe 'feminism'? Because there is not debate in your opening statement.
