The resolution is simple. I want to debate a girl on this who would try to prove that guys' lives are more difficult. I, a guy, will try to prove that girls' lives are more difficult.


Note: This debate is only open for a girl to accept.

A guy vs a girl both arguing for the opposite side.

First round, Con must only state "I accept".
Second and Third rounds are for arguments and rebuttals. Can may not make any new points in her last round.

I look forward to this debate.

Hi, I'll accept the side of men. I'm new to this site, so I'm not sure if I'm supposed to give some of my argument straight away, but I will state some facts. 40% of all domestic violence happens to men, just to put some perspective into the argument that women are the only real victims. Now that you know that men are actually victims too, I will give some other opening facts about this issue. 1 out of 10 male on male rapes are reported, making the 3% of men in the UK that admit to male on male rape and the 5% that admitted to the same as a child even more disturbing, not counting prison rape. The CDC reported males being forced to either penetrate or give oral sex to women being a surprising 4.8%; 1 out of 21 men. There was an experiment where at first, a male fought with a female (verbally) in public, in a crowded area, loudly so everyone could hear, and pushed her maybe once or twice, and people started whipping out phones to alert authorities and ran to go get help. The experiment then reversed the situation, waiting until different people were in the area and put the man as the character being abused, and the woman actually punched him a few times while yelling at him. The bystanders simply looked out of curiosity, sometimes laughed, and kept walking. That should show how people feel about abuse. I can link to the video if I need to, but I don't have it on hand.

As we all know, there are two conflicting genders in the human race: Men and Woman. Each gender faces their own set of problems, however, women’s lives are more difficult. Over the next couple rounds, I will prove to the readers that women’s lives are more challenging than those of men’s. Thank you.


{P1} Appearance

Woman are under constant pressure to look good. Whether it’s pressure from men, or pressure from media, woman always feel the need to look presentable no matter where they go. When women don’t look presentable, they are scoffed at, as noticed in the common “Walk of Shame” a woman must do after a one-night-stand. Now, let’s look at the facts:


According to a study that polled 1,000 U.S adults, the following information was found:

We found that 35 percent of women use one or two products daily, while 17 percent use three or four products a day.

Meanwhile, the majority of men (54 percent) don’t use a single product when getting ready in the morning.” [1]

This is the reason why, according to a study from Mint, the average woman spends about 15,000 dollars a year on makeup. [2]

This is an interesting way to depict it: [5]

{P2} Jobs

The debate has gone on for so long: Why don’t women get paid as much as men?

Obviously, financial discrimination against women is well-known and quite common.


An article on the Huffington Post states the following, Women still earned only 77 cents for every dollar that men earned in 2012, according to new data from the U.S Census Bureau.” [3]

A similar discrepancy between the pay of women and men is still around today. Even though women fight for equal pay [4], men still dominate the workforce and are rewarded more in return. The article I provided [4] gives some very interesting points on this topic.


{P3} Sex

This is one of the hardest parts of a woman’s life. So many times, men pressure women for sex, and if they give in, they are considered impure. As well all know, ‘boys become men’ when they have sex, but women are deemed impure once they lose their virginity. In many countries, women are stoned for losing their virginity or even for marriage not approved by her parents.[6]

A known phrase can sum-up this point:

A key that can open any lock is a master key. However, a lock that can be opened by any key is useless.

(Think about it)

My fellow citizens, I have shown that women face harder challenges in life than men. I have shown evidence, support, and further research for my arguments. I will continue with more points next round. Thank you.

My opponent has forfeited her round.

Thus, there is no rebuttals to make, so I will re-paste my previous round and allow her to make her argument. If she does not uphold her shared BOP or she forfeits her round, the winner is obvious. Thank you.

Okay, I will post my argument. No need to say I accept. Just go into your arguments. As a suggestion though, make sure you read the rules clearly before you accept. I hope you can start fresh on this site. Oh, and voters may not like the fact that you broke the rules.

Okay, I will post later. So, you don't have to wait.

Thanks.

That's very ignorant, Shadow-Dragon. Lesbian females are as female as straight females.
