Males and Females are equal right then why can't girls play pro.?
StarPenguin

Con

Yes girls should be allowed to play pro football. However, only in an all female league.

I feel like we should be able to play with boys too because we are just the same as them

In response to your statement, "we are just the same", that is scientifically incorrect. Males and females are very different from each other. As stated by Neel Burton M.D., "Men are physically stronger than women, who have, on average, less total muscle mass, both in absolute terms and relative to total body mass. The greater muscle mass of men is the result of testosterone-induced muscular hypertrophy. Men also have denser, stronger bones, tendons, and ligaments.".

Males and females should not play football together. This is not because males are socially superior to women. Instead, it is because men usually have a physical advantage over women.

females are just the same as men and we are going to prove it one day and all the men will look back to this day and be sorry they judge us females

Prove it one day how? There is nothing to prove. Men and women extremely different which why we call such differences a "gender". Males have penises while females have vaginas. Men produce testosterone while, women produce estrogen. Women can conceive children while, men cannot. Socially we are all the same. In result, gender should be irrelevant when it comes to wage . But physically, we are very different.

There is no women who is prepaired to play NFL football. It's not sexist, it's just true. One day there maybe one, but at the moment they don't have the body for it.

The reasons why that Girls and Boys are separated is because boys USUALLY have a stronger body build. Nuff' said

It would honestly be a slaughter if you put a female against someone like (RAy Lewis) I would honestly see some graphic stuff...

Actually no I did not. The question was "Should Girls be able to play pro football". The creator of the this debate was most likely referring to the NFL which happens to be MALE ONLY. I simply stated that girls should be allowed to play in their own league but not in the NFL.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct to Con, Pro forfeited 2/5 rounds. S&G irrelevant. The resolution was intended to be "girls should be able to play pro football" however, both Pro and Con seemed to agree that the resolution is really about if "girls should be able to play pro football WITH BOYS." Given this agreed resolution, Pro's only argument is that males and females are equal/girls and boys are just the same. Pro's proof? "one day...all the men will look back to this day and be sorry they judge us females." Con mentioned and sourced scientific evidence to the contrary including testosterone, muscle mass, and bone density, which is NEVER addressed by Pro, and Con's point that this physical difference would actually be unfair for a would be female footballer rejects the resolution successfully. Given no response from Pro due to the forfeits, it leaves me no choice but to give arguments to Con. No source from Pro. Con's source was used effectively to support a solid argument. Sources to Con.
