Men are smarter than women. Here's the proof:
mizkhan

Con

Here"s another study for the "obvious" file: Women are smarter than men. As you reach for this file (which by now should be located in an easy-to-reach spot on your desk) you will likely notice several other stories bearing the same headline.

For example, a 2008 Higher Education Policy Institute report said women are not only more likely to get into better schools, they"re also more likely to outperform the men once there.

Then, in 2009, a British researcher named Adrian Furnham released a report which said men and women likely have the same levels of intelligence, but men are more apt to think they are smarter than women. Another story for the "Obvious" file.

In 2010, some researchers created an online version of the popular board game "Trivial Pursuit" to study which sex has the better brain. Five months and more than 15 million questions later, the researchers said women answered more questions correctly than men.

Today"s report says women, on average, score 5 points higher than men in IQ tests. According to James Flynn, an expert on IQ tests, this is the first time in over 100 years women have scored higher than men, and it"s likely due to all that multi-tasking women are so gosh-darned good at.

"In the last 100 years the IQ scores of both men and women have risen but women"s have risen faster," said Flynn.

Why is this debate on the homepage? This debate is probably the worst model for the new users.

There isn't a clear answer. Until we can quantify how many smart men and women there are, compare the groups intelligence against each other and then see which is greater by majority (likely never), then by the people around there is usually a balance between them for various environmental reasons. No vote.

@Ragnar, avoid them. I would suggest you to youtube them to see their debates where they repeatedly insult people for no reason like he did on his posts.

Wow. I wish I would of seen this earlier. I could of commented and left a warning. This guy is part of the Manhood Academy cult. You should avoid at all costs because they are not interested in dialogue nevertheless a debate.

This has no point first of all the only reason girls are smarter because they mature fast but con gave a argument
Pro was a troll posting vids out of no where expecting to win and his account is closed thanks to all his reports.
They are both smart and the blame goes to pro because he brought the topic up

Wow this is way too popular a debate. Pro is obviously a raging troll and I almost wanna congratulate him because he has succeeded in reeling in these gullible people -.-. And con is just as bad as he says its obvious that women are smarter than men. Each gender is smarter in different fields, at least pro is having a laugh about this, but con is actually sincere in his prejudice!

This debate was stupid.
Both Pro and Con were wrong.
Men and women are EQUAL.
Any that a man can do can be done by a woman, and any thing that a woman can do can be done by a man (except childbirth).
I'm going to abstain from voting on this debate because both sides were so wrong.

Reasons for voting decision: Arguments to con as he posted an actual written argument. Conduct to con because he didn't only post videos. Videos do count as sources though.

Reasons for voting decision: a handful of video's of feminists being 'destroyed' in a debate falls far short of the argument that men are smarter than women, and con actually presented some evidence that women are equal to, if not smarter, then men are, though con's arguments became spectacularly sh*tty in the later rounds. Arguments to con though since pro still fell tremendously short of fulfilling his BOP

Reasons for voting decision: PRO had videos, which counts as sources for me. However, he failed to bake any written arguments. S&G goes to PRO because con forgot to capitalize a ton.

Reasons for voting decision: This is just.... sad. If Pro wanted to debate using videos, she should specify in the comments her intent. The format for the debates should be the same across both contenders to have an equal platform to judge off of. This is just my opinion, however. Correct me (with written words) if i may be wrong on this. All points to Con for conduct and arguments and having something to judge for SnG.

Reasons for voting decision: Some men are, however clearly not pro. CONDUCT: Hate content in most rounds, and refusing to post an argument even when prodded to. S&G: Con's use of all caps did make this comparable. ARGUMENTS: Pro failed to even attempt to make one. SOURCES: This would go to pro, if he had related his videos to his argument. Very tempted to award this to con, due to pro doing no more than source spamming... However bad sources from one side, does not automatically give it to the other (besides, to even grade this I'd have to at least skim those hour long spam videos).
