Are men sexist (yes/pro) or women sexist (no/con) [Who is more sexist to you?]
Debate Rounds (3)
I watched a video on youtube about some talk show supporting a woman that sawed off her husband's dick and put it in the garbage disposal in the sink because he wanted to divorce and I was completely horrified. I know, I know those talk show hosts don't represent all feminists and women but it still horrified me when one of the talk show hosts was like 'You wouldn't be acting this way if it was a girl's boobs' and one of the others was like 'No, it is different'. My thought is: Do women value equality or want to become the masters?
The only evidence my opponent has provided to fulfill burden of proof is that they once saw a talk show in which a bunch of women were happy that a woman had dismembered her husband.
I do not know if such a talk show segment exists, but if it does, I don't really see how it somehow proves that women as a rule are more sexist (or more frequently sexist? That's unclear too) than men.
I can find countless examples of men cheering for women receiving horrible treatment at the hands of their boyfriends. Whole websites exist to further this.
I would think the greater evidence of greater sexism lies in the vast disparities between men and women in social standing. Women make up disproportionately small numbers of elected officials, heads of companies, tenured academic faculty, Law Firm Partners, and Doctors within the specialties. If a greater sexism against women did not exist, I submit that these disparities would not exist.
Even if sexism were somehow more expressed by women, and CON has given no evidence that it is, it clearly isn't holding men back the way that whatever sexism exists in society is burdening women.
Over to you, CON.
I did read that like only 17 (published in 2013) women are at the top of countries out of like around ~200 countries and I'm aware of how their is few women at the top of high paying jobs and companies. But of course that is changing since technically the First Lady has a lot of power in the schools, and there is many examples of senators, judges, Supreme Court judges (not much since the max is 9 judges), representatives, et cetera. In the job department two things: 1. I am seeing alot of stay at home dads, [and] 2. Many men flunk out of schools; more than women.
I believe that women show sexism because. . .
They not only think as themselves as superior since they are smarter and more mature than us and they state it but they believe that us barbarians only play sports and beat each other up to gain superiority. That men are only used to do die in wars and lift heavy material. Otherwise they are useless other than chromosomes and sometimes becoming lovable gentleman.
While my opponent has done nothing to substantiate his claims about what women think of men, his willingness to generalize about all women and what they think is exactly proof of the kind of sexism we're talking about here, because that's sexist as hell.
We're talking about an instigator who saw a youtube video of some craziness and took to the net to show how THIS proves women are more consistently sexist than men, itself an extremely sexist action.
By contrast, I do not think all men are sexist (I certainly hope I'm not) and do not believe all women are either. What I CAN definitively show if I may belabor the point a bit, is that whatever sexism exists among the men who are largely in power has translated to a lack of women in power, which means it is, if not more frequent, is at least objectively more detrimental.
Thanks for the debate.
