I would say that everyone is not equal, and feminism isn’t going to change that.

Males and females are different by nature. Our bodies, brains and hormones are different in so many ways. As a result, feminism (which is a purely social phenomenon) can never engineer total equality.

We are not equal, not yet. It is naïve to sit there demanding more 👏 female 👏war 👏 criminals 👏, to pretend that if the boards of weapons manufacturers are 50% women then equality has been achieved, and it's that sort of thinking that leads to some claiming the likes of Hilary Clinton and Margret Thatcher are feminist icons as powerful women when in reality they represent patriarchal systems as much as men - people talk of the glass ceiling breaking but never consider why the glass ceiling exists in the first place. In reality every aspect of society is geared towards inequality, from the commodity form and wage labour structure which creates the unpaid labour that is household management, a burden held predominantly by women due to the poor division of that labour, to the impact of policy failures by the right wing around war, healthcare, education and poverty, which disproportionately affects women, particularly women from marginalised backgrounds (e.g. working class, BAME, LGBTQ etc.). The entire premise of your statement is flawed

The same exact arguments have been taking place for over a century.

In the early 1900s feminism argued that disparities between the sexes were the result of sexism. People rebutted this claim by arguing that men and women are different. People argued that disparities where a natural consequence of these differences. It took a while, but feminism came up with a retort to this rebuttal. It's retort was as follows: "Gender is a social construct". "There are no differences between women and men". "Hence, all disparities are the result of sexism".
