My opponent has stated in the comments he wishes to forfeit the debate.
As I can't be bothered to write out my arguments, I make the assertion that I am the physical manifestation of god and as such I declare that quotas make turtles cry, and would steal everyones KFC (I have atleast one vote now).

Heeble dee weeble bee, muppetry.

I forfeit this debate. I made the mistake of believing I would be con.

This challenge was initially opened at a mildly ridiculous feminist, who refused it, and I didn't want to waste the effort spent preparing for it.

Reasons for voting decision: No real arguments here but to counter balance TUF's vote. Plus both sides did not honor the R1's agreement. So this is just a counter balance
