@Tree of Death I agree that women don't have equality rights but modern feminism is all about misandry and female supremacy.

Fox-"Killing all men" and eroding fathers' rights is not 3rd wave feminism. Feminism fights to end gender violence, ensure reproductive rights for women, and works to create maternity leave and other important things. Thus, feminism is still relevant and is still equality.

@Fox- You have a point, but you can't just focus on the extremists and ignore those who are doing good. Of course some branches of feminism are prone to misandry, but these are mainly fringe movements. The majority of feminists are fighting for the causes outlined in the article I cited.

True feminism: Advocating for equality and talking about both mens and womens issues. Radical feminism: Advocating for female supremacy and ignoring men's issues.

True. But the title of the poll is "Is feminism equality?" This should be taken to mean true feminism. If you were to outline a branch of feminism that you believe is not true feminism in the title, then there would be no argument.

Well debate.Org doesn't have an editing feature so I can't do that.

@Tree_of_Death, not being condescending here, legitimately asking. Could you name some of the ways feminism is actually about equality? The page you linked to simply pointed out problems that aren't related to equality at all. It also didn't have any information about what feminists are actually doing in an attempt to fix those issues.
