Boys are mentally superior to girls
Debate Rounds (1)
"He achieved a perfect score in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Circuits and Electronics exam. That is one of the hardest academic feats an adult can achieve, let alone a child. This proves that boys are mentally superior to girls".
This argument is an extreme fallacy and makes little sense. Your only argument is based on such examples therefore it cannot be a valid argument. It is the exact same as saying that a few priests harmed some little boys therefore all priests are pedophiles. (excuse my lack of a better example but it is the exact same principle). It is a ridicoulos notion and an unfair generalization.
Bringing this back to the debate title I will actually attempt to use cited sources for my argument rather than irrelevant individual examples that have no validation (with all due respect).
Also you failed to define "mentally superior" however you seem to just deal with intelligence from your argument so I will do the same.
Here are the graphs that chart the mean IQ of the NCDS respondents by sex at ages 7 and 11. Notice that girls are slightly statistically more intelligent than boys at both ages. At age 7, the mean IQ for girls is 100.6 while the mean IQ for boys is 99.4. Also At age 11, the mean IQ for girls is 100.4 while the mean IQ for boys is 99.6.
Also girls on average mature faster than boys,(http://www.federalwaymirror.com...)
The male advances in intelligence do not appear until after puberty. Since girls mature faster, they have an upper hand of making decisions faster than boys at an early age.
Based on all I have just said and the studies shown, I think it is realistic to conclude that Boys are in fact not mentally superior (intelligence) to girls.
Thank you for the debate and I wish you luck.
