Con

Well considering we have a sexist troll here I'll like to see what he has to say about the status of women. I argue that women aren't inferior to men. I will like to present to my opponent, Queen Elizabeth I of England, the sole monarch of Britain from 1558 to 1603. http://en.wikipedia.org... During her reign she accomplished such tasks as defeating the Spanish Armada and brought about the golden age in a male dominated world. More to come next round...

But monarchy is retarded so that immediately falls apart.

My opponent failed to address the topic of focus as to women being inferior to men so I'll provide more reasoning as to why I don't believe this to be true. I'll like to point out the status of women in various Islamic religious scriptures. First, the Qur'an states:
"O you who believe, it is not lawful for you to take women as heritage against their will. Nor should you straiten them…." Surah Al-Nisa:19" Which proves that women are not the property of men as was commonly believed in many western cultures.
And a Hadith:
"O' ye men. Fear Allah and treat your women with kindness."
(http://www.answering-christianity.com...)

Also, from a secular point of view:
According to the Canadian Constitution of 1982, both sexes are equal and it has been semi-successful in striking down discrimintory laws. There has also been many successful women throughout Canadian history. http://www.mta.ca...
ManPower

Pro

First, I don't give a poop about the Canadians, they wear strange hats.

Second, men have higher IQs and larger brains that women

Third, the intellectuals deserve more than the dim-wits.

Forth, men are more muscular that women and are better at hard labor.

Fifth, hard workers deserve more than the unproductive weaklings

Sixth, whether islam is sexist or not is of no concern to me, I'm not muslim.

Con

My opponent failed to provide statistics for each of his arguments. I urge you to vote con!

I will also like to point out that without the existance of women it would be impossible for men to exist as we're the only ones capable of reproduction so in that aspect women are superior. We made you, men!

Pro

That's just what all those Islamo-Feminists out there want you to think.
Debate Round No. 3

Con

Once again, my opponent failed to post any valuable argument whatsoever. Vote con!

This has nothing to do with "Islamo-Feminism" as you called it(besides, muslims shouldn't have to fight for women's rights as Islam is supposed to already provide that). This is to do with the fact that society as a whole accepts that women are capable of doing things men do. Women can be doctors, construction workers, politicians, etc just as well as men can. Sarah Palin ran as John McCain's running mate and will be running for president in 2012. This is some proof that women can perform well in politics. If this wasn't the case she would still be stuck at home in the kitchen cooking for her husband and kids. There are also high-up women CEOs in various companies.
ManPower

Pro

Just cause she's popular doesn't mean she would do a good job.

Further more, I love you.

Vote pro and God will reward you for your wisdom.

Double fail from Con-Pro.

I think Con won with minimal effort. You could win with... "No."
