I believe that feminism is a good thing for these reasons:
1. Feminism is the belief that men and women should be equal.
2. Many feminists also believe in total equality, including of races, gender (or lack of thereof), and sexuality.
3. Though many say that men and women ARE equal, we still have the wage gap and problems such as abuse, rape, prejudice and many others.
4. Along with those, we validate the pain of men who have the same problems.
5. There is such a thing as rape culture, and it has been proven many times.
6. We stand against both public and internalized misogyny, which is a problem in today's society.
Thank you for reading my opinion on feminism. I'm sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes.

Con

Feminism is bad because it typically turns into women claiming they are better than men, NOT equal. Feminists also have different opinions on people being transgender, they don't all think it is good. Feminists also believe in abortion, even if a baby is unborn it is still a human that has a future and its the same thing as murdering a small child, there are much better alternatives like giving your baby up for adoption.

Prove it.
5. There is such a thing as rape culture, and it has been proven many times.
Yeah, just not in america, in the middle east, thats a real rape culture, yet you people praise Islam and ignore.all the horrid situations that it causes. In america , rape is one of the most serious crimes you can commit. If you honestly believe that we live in a rape culture you are ignorant and are listening to the feminazi propaganda that has ruined true feminism. As i have stated before. A man can have his life ruined by just the accusation of rape, not even a conviction. How can you say that we live in a rape culture?
6. We stand against both public and internalized misogyny, which is a problem in today's society.
No you dont, you purposefully create situations in your head so that you have something to fight for. In reality you cause most of the problems you whine about because you want something to whine about. You make things up, twist and ignore facts, and utterly shut down anyone who disagrees with them or deny that the facts they are presented with are true.

I sincerely hope that you read this and at least think about the subject at hand, do some actual research instead of just believing the propaganda the media spews out.
I would be more than happy to have a civil debate about thiswith you, But based on your points im sure it would be very easy for me to win

I am gonna provide a counter to eavh point.

I believe that feminism is a good thing for these reasons:
1. Feminism is the belief that men and women should be equal.
Yeah, it is, or at least it used to be. But in todays society it means something entirely different.
2. Many feminists also believe in total equality, including of races, gender (or lack of thereof), and sexuality.
Many feminists also believe that men are evil and all men are misogynists. They also have a tendency to believe that their opinions are fact and that everyone should conform to the way they think. And if someone doesnt, they are a facist nazi woman abusing bastard who need to be eliminated.
3. Though many say that men and women ARE equal, we still have the wage gap and problems such as abuse, rape, prejudice and many others.
The wage gap is a myth, its been debunked too many times to count. The earnins gap however is a real thing. That women on average earn less than men. There is a fine line between the two and the factors that determine which is which.are very clearly defined. As for the abuse, rape, prejudice, etc, everyone has these issues. Everyone has their own predjudices, and what about the amount of men that are raped? Never seen a feminist cover that before, men are abused too, even more so in this society by the women who claim to be the victims. I have an honest question, are you someone who thinks that any woman who accuses someone of rape is always telling the truth? If so, ive got news for you, innocent until proven guilty, thats how all judgments are supposed to be made. A woman can destroy a man's life just by accusing them of rape. They dont even have to be guilty. Word count limit so i need to make a second comment.

Feminism is not needed in todays society. Woman have equal rights as men. Feminism is a good thing when its needed but in today's society it isnt necessary. While woman do experience harassment, that occurs to every human being, no matter the gender or race. Most so called "feminists" nowadays are just liberals who claim everything is sexist or misogyny, like air conditioners (look it up)
