Are men better than woman?
Debate Rounds (3)
Are men (Plural) better than woman (Singular)?
Yes, many men are better than one woman at many things in that many are better than one, except at being the one woman.
Many Men's lives would be harder than one woman's life. Many men would have had more life experiences.
From a singular vs plural perspective, well, there is not much to debate. I will take this as a typo and you meant "women".
I would also like to say that since the openinng argument are 2 questions and the con side is not taking a side, then I would argue that if I take either side, "Women are better than Men" or "Men are better than women", I would succeed in this debate as long as I prove that they are not equal.
But since the topic is Are Men better than "Women"? and I am taking the pro side, I will have to interpret that Men are better than women... (sadly-as a feminist). I will go ahead and argue that men are better than women, but in nuanced ways, that show women have harder lives.
Since women have the harder lives, than men, then men have it better than women is what I will argue in the end.

Let's start with the easy stuff first.
Physically and due to testosterone, on average, men have greater muscle density than women. For the same amount of working out, men progress to higher weights more quickly. Women have to put in more effort, but if you look at weight lifter Katie Sandwina and others women can lift more than men. As for fighting, I would bet on Ronda Rousey if she fights Floyd Mayweather.
There are plenty of exceptions, but on average, mentally, men have less mood swings and are better at separating their emotions from their actions. It is easier for men to act single mindedly.
Many of the other things that men are better than women are societal or cultural. Both are equally good at math and Stem jobs. It is more a matter of focus and time spent learning rather than something innate. Other than the hormonal differences and child birthing, it is quite hard to point to something not driven by society. Women can take a lot more pain then men and are able to live and cope with pain a lot better than men. It could be from child birthing, but even women that have not given birth can take a lot of pain.
Going back to hunter gatherer days, it made sense that men hunt due to the inherent dangers of other predatory animals. Men were not at the top of the food chain and were eaten. Short life expectancy. From above, giving birth is also dangerous. Many Women for giving birth. Women staying home with the children and recovering made sense with the breastfeeding and how vulnerable children were. Also, families were bigger with extended families all living together. So women had more help gathering for the hearth, crafting, and doing household labors. Getting men to stay to raise a family were debatable since Families were in larger tribes. Older women were more dominant. With hunting, men had the more dangerous occupation and they were more expendable. When hunters got better at it and were bringing home better game and families getting smaller, then things started changing and the patriarchal society started.
