Ground rules: No new arguments in the last round. This includes counter-arguments, but you can back up ones you have made with new sources and statistics. Provide sources for arguments and statistics that are not common knowledge. Burdens: The Pro has to prove that women are not paid less for the same work as men. The Con has to prove the opposite. Argument 1: The pay gap doesn't take into account life choices. According to Forbes (https://www.forbes.com/sites/karinagness/2016/04/12/dont-b...

The goal for Pro (me) will be to demonstrate why Purushadasa is NOT a good debater. The goal for Con (you) will be to demonstrate why Purushadasa IS a good debater. Burden of Proof is shared on both sides. It's hard to prove is someone is "good", but at least attempt. I know this debate might be a little cold-hearted, but I'm really fed up with Purushadasa....
