Con

Women tend not to support torture against POWs, criminals and terrorist.
That is because they are weakened by emotional burdens, because they are female.
That is immature!

In new research published in the journal Cerebral Cortex, an international group of researchers led by a team from Newcastle University in England found that girls’ brains march through the reorganization and pruning typical of normal brain development earlier than boys’ brains. In the study, in which 121 people between ages 4 to 40 were scanned using MRIs, the scientists documented the ebb and flow of new neural connections, and found that some brain fibers that bridged far-flung regions of the brain tended to remain stable, while shorter connections, many of which were redundant, were edited away. And the entire reorganization seemed to occur sooner in girls’ brains than in boys’ brains. Females also tended to have more connections across the two hemispheres of the brain. The researchers believe that the earlier reorganization in girls makes the brain work more efficiently, and therefore reach a more mature state for processing the environment.

Just because you can make evidence that women are smarter than men, that does not make them more mature.

How many woman have been persuaded by their boyfriends to make a porno and forgotten about it, until it surfaced on a Internet site?

Please read the report, I will quote it again,
The researchers believe that the earlier reorganization in girls makes the brain work more efficiently, and therefore reach a more mature state for processing the environment.

Teenage boys are more secure in their porn assigned sex roles as dominates and violators than women are in their roles as masochists

This argument goes unwarranted, therefore I can dismiss it as such. I have proven using research that females are more mature than males, my opponent has failed to defeat that argument, or prove his own case. I have done what I can due to the 30 min time limit and 1000 character limit, thank you and vote Pro!

boys may be more immature but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

Not surprising but bad article. The study ONLY states that more connections are made at different ages between girls and boys. It also then states ""The loss of connectivity during brain development can actually help to improve brain function by reorganising the network more efficiently. Say, instead of talking to many people at random, asking a couple of people who have lived in the area for a long time is the most efficient way to know your way. In a similar way, reducing some projections in the brain helps to focus on essential information."

So the author is making a broad conclusion, that more connections makes a brain more mature. Whilst the study mention that pruning is done to achieve a more streamlined approach. If boys make less connections they have less to prune.

Yes, Humans!
Torture is a serious skill learned by soldiers with great care and often interest.

Also, some people would argue that torture is immature and childish. This whole debate becomes meaningless.

Reasons for voting decision: Neither provided a decent argument nor answered the initial question. The pro: only stated a quote from an article, nor did he include quotation which is the reason I will be subtraction a point for grammar. The source he provided just states they physically mature quicker in some cases, not whether or not they are overall more mature (the study is for 4-40 year old people, not adults). Nor does he make the tie with this study to maturity. (Note: After voting pro continuously messaged me about the decision, after asking 3 times for him to stop. ) The con: Really had no solid argument at all, no statistics behind is claim that women supported these issues, no made the connection to the topic. This was not a debate about which was more mature, it was a question about if women are more mature than men.
