Resolution: In Britain, men are discriminated against more than women.

Structure
Con will start with his opening in round 1, I will state my opening argument in round 2, and the rounds after that will be used for arguments and rebuttals until Con's round 4, where he'll simply say "End of debate".

Rules
1. No trolling
2. No personal insults
3. Con cannot write or imply an argument in the fourth round.
4. [All Standard DDO Terms of Service apply]
5. Breaking any of the rules will result in a 7-point forfeit.

Thank you.

So what? Men are inferior, rude, loud human beings. Women are the future of this world.

My Arguments

#1: The right to financial abortion

Men do not have the right to a financial abortion in cases where they are unable to/don't want to provide for their child [1], whereas if a woman is unable to/doesn't want to provide for a child, she can have an abortion [2].

#2: The Cancer funding gap

Prostate cancer gets under half the amount of funding that breast cancer gets [3], as pointed out by Prostate Cancer UK. Although it is one of the more treatable types of cancer, particularly if diagnosed early, one man dies every hour from it, says Prostate Cancer UK.

#3: The Domestic violence shelter gap

Despite the fact that 40% of domestic violence victims are men [4], and that when you factor in suicides, more men die as a result of it [5], there is approximately only one domestic violence shelter for men for every 180 there is for women [6].

I'll leave it there for now.

Thank you.
