DOPEYOLOSWAG420

Con

I dont think girls should be able to go to school. They should just stay home and knit us sweaters or something like that. They are all annoying and they do not deserve to have an education because men are the more superior gender.
Ragnar

Pro

I accept the debate. I shall easily prove that the benefits to education for girls, far outweighs any harms my opponent cares to prove.

To start without educated women, we would not know the shape of DNA (vital to understanding how it works), the existence of pulsars, we wouldn't even know that sex is determined by chromosomes [1].

Debate Round No. 1

Con

DOPEYOLOSWAG420 forfeited this round.
Ragnar

Pro

I confess, I only accepted this because I found the resolution too brainless and offensive to be allowed to remain in sight.

Anyway pro has put forward no more than a Self Refuting Idea [2]. There are about 3.65 billion females on the planet, if they combined their efforts knitting sweaters, the rest of us would drown in the tide of knitwork; even if some of us hid from it, crops would be denied access to sunlight and die, and thus the death of the whole human race.

Admitedly the death of the human race is morally neautral, but it would be inconvenient for we who count ourselves among its members. Far better for us to keep them busy in school, and not causing an extiction event.

Con

Ragnar

Pro

I admit I have only given subjective reasons to vote, those who are human should probably vote in my favor.

As I'm quite aware of the controversy of my pro-women views, I will not complain of any protest votes against me, so long as they limit themselves to conduct.

Anyone who thinks women shouldn't have the same rights as men is a sexist bastard.
