Women should be treated the same as men in everyday life!

FOOTBALL TEAMS! SHOULD ALLOW WOMEN TO PLAY
WOMEN GET THE SAME PAY CHECK AS MEN
WOMEN GET THE SAME EQUAL CHANCE TO DO THINGS!

Well we can't change the whole world so let's stat with DDO.

Do women participate proportionately, being about one-third of the total membership?

Why are women one-third of the total membership?

It appears to me that, and correct me if I am wrong, that the cause of women participating or not participating in debates on debate.org, at least with the admittedly sleazy crowd I hang around with, is not due to their being or not being treated the same as men, and if I am not wrong then to what is it due?

That is not a good enough excuse blaming it on debate.org! Women should be treated fairly no matter what

My gynecologist wants to know what on Earth you are talking about.

The pro teams are not going to let any fifteen-year-old play anyway.

Olympics does it depend on the sport?

Skating pairs will be a whole lot different. There will be mixed and unmixed or else just unmixed and nobody wants that.

Next they will want skating triplets etc.

Gymnastics will let everyone compete on everything. Men on the balance beam and uneven bars and women on the rings, horse and parallel bars. Not just if they want to. They have to.

All the records will be held by men except horse hockey.

The men's synchronized swimming and ribbon dancing will be especially entertaining.

But women's wrestling and weight lifting will still be the most popular.

Women can retire at 60; men 65

Women get 8 weeks maternity; men only 2

Women get cheaper car insurance

Women get more money from court cases (especially divorce)

Women are still not expected to work

Women look after kids following a divorce.

Males who are sexually/physically abused are not taken seriously in court.

Female criminals serve less time in jail for equivalent crimes.

Far more funding going into women's healthy; when was the last time you've seen a leaflet about testicular cancer (yet this is the most commen cancer in young men)?

Mother's day is very important, but father's day is virtually ignored.

Males support female charities (eg breast cancer) when women don't support male charities (eg testicular cancer).

Th teaching style at schools favours females

Men buy gifts and look after the women in relationships when the women may not do anything.

There are many taboo such as "open doors for women" and "ladies first" etc that apply only to women.

There are many "women only" organisations. This is discrimination at it's worst and needs to be sorted out.

Women are treated better than men.

What about "looks" inequality? I really get screwed there as you can see.

Actually, in some parts of Eurpoe (I think Germany), they stopped using urinals in men's rooms, and now they have signs telling men to sit down when they pee. Where will it stop???

"I'm not going to debate a crybaby."
Too late....

Resolved: Women should be treated equal as men.

What they actually mean, is that women shouldn't be drafted, that husbands should have no say in abortion, that women need to make more than 53% more than men, that women should be let into things whether they are qualified or not.

Feminism disgusts me.

"Women should be treated the same as men in everyday life!"
Irrelevant. Read the resolution.

"FOOTBALL TEAMS! SHOULD ALLOW WOMEN TO PLAY"
They do, but no women are good enough to make it.
"WOMEN GET THE SAME PAY CHECK AS MEN"
Women that work the same hours at the same job who have not gone through pregnancy make 53% more than men. So, yes, women do need to make less.
"WOMEN GET THE SAME EQUAL CHANCE TO DO THINGS!"
If you want to have the same body as a man, then take steroids.

Y'all just need to shut up and appreciate that once we take everything into account, y'all ARE treated BETTER than us. Y'all just never work as hard...
