Rules:

1. No plagiarism. I did before. My friend abruptly caught me and scolded me. He had a book checked out at the Library just that day, dedicated to politics. He flipped through the pages wildly. I was reading a book. A seal pup felt sharks were still prowling around the sea. He nudged me. He retorted, "According to this, if you copy someone else's work without their consent, claiming it as your own, you would be infringing copyright!" He cared. Fear dissented, as I've done so a lot. This will result in a loss of a conduct point and argument points.

2. No trolling. This will result in a loss of a conduct point.

3. Opponent can first subsequently present their arguments. Don't have to.

Response:

Ah. You know. It's not that women just receive less money for their work from their business owner because business owners oppress them due to their gender. 1 thing, their occupation. Wage? Lower. Wow, do ideas diffuse. Women scowl at us for this reason.

However, your position? Pro. That means that you believe that it is unfair that women make less money than men. You contradict your own position. Automatic loss.

Alright. First, women are NOT paid less than men. But if tthey were, it would be fair. If they were, it would be completely coincidental. Men just happen to have the higher paying jobs.

Response:

NO! Without any rippling water, you can't judge. However, this? Women do indeed make less money than men, HENCE THE TITLE. Why? Wage? Lower. My title isn't even ambiguous. They don't receive less than men.

Three quotes. "Women do indeed make less money than men"-Con "They don't receive less than men."-Con. "You contradict your own position. Automatic loss."-Con Also,please reply to my points. It's coincidental. If people that eat pancakes and like to play basketball on Mondays,Tuesdays and Thursdays but not Wednesdays, Fridays, or weekends, would you say their being discriminated against? No, of course not! They just happen to have lower paying jobs, work less hours, don't make their bonuses, or a combination of these (Plus many other factors, I'd list them, but I think you get the point). Exact same thing with women. Now, you might say "Why do they have lower paying jobs, and work less hours? Because they're being discriminated against!" Again, not true, exact same thing, it's coincidental! Thank you.

No, it's reallly not. It's like asking "Is it good that the waterf is rippling?". You reply, "No". The person who asked you asked why. You reply "Because it's not rippling at all". Granted, it's not a direct answer, but it contains merit.

It's like someone asking, "Is the water rippled?" You reply, "No." The person who asked asks you how. You reply, "Because, from my vision, the water is rippled." WTF
