    Re: how to debte

    Making people take positions in debates that go against their idea is common in debatibng. remember that the idea is to sharpen your skills at arguing, so forcing you to argue for something you don't believe in is, I think, a good idea. You have to make your arguments as convincing as you can- if you argue weakly because you support feminism, then you aren't debating. Then, after the debate, you should be able to argue better and more strongly for feminism.
