Women could not compete in the vast majority of male dominated sports
Debate Rounds (3)
"If any male and female leagues merged, there would be an extremely low percentage of women playing in this "coed" league" Good point, but that's not the argument. Even if there is NOT a lot of women playing, the ones that are can still have an opportunity to compete. I also don't agree with you in that statement. Many women are interested in Coed sports and aggressive sports in general. There is even a women coach for the Buffalo Bills and it's encouraging women to stride for Coed sports.
"never be a dominant female athlete who plays in a league full of men." Why? How would you know? It hasn't really happened yet has it? Women are fast, smart and they can be strong. Much stronger than a lot of men I know. Basketball is a perfect example. Women can be HUGE. A lot of women I know are very tall. Much taller then some guys in the basketball league. Woman do not have a limitation when it comes to performance. They do not have limitations when it comes to aggression as well. Anyone can be strong/aggressive and women could easily have the same perks men have to make it into a league.
That's an opinion.
"The average height of a WNBA player is 6'. The average height in the NBA is 6'7". "
Evidence please? Sure women are smaller but you don't need to be tall to play basketball. Sure, you could do better if you were taller, just like you could do better in Soccer if you're faster... but you could still preform well.
"Men were designed to develop bigger, faster and stronger than women due to evolution."
What? Of course they are... but we are talking about the MEN who play sports and the WOMEN that play sports. Not every man that plays a sport is "big" or "aggressive". Meaning a women that is considered "aggressive" could definitely beat a man who isn't. For example, for basketball (professional) men are generally taller... but there are a few select women out there tall could STILL be considered tall... Just because men are "GENERALLY" taller doesn't mean women are not tall.
"We'll have to agree to disagree, but the answer to the question on who is generally more athletic between genders, males are the obviously the frontrunner."
WHAT? The argument WAS NOT... "Men are generally more athletic than females.." Your argument WAS, "Women could not compete in the vast majority of male dominated sports." You proved nothing! Even if a man's usually taller than a women in basketball leagues, women should still have an opportunity to COMPETE. Besides, you're acting like every male athlete is some tall, fast, aggressive, steroid-loving, muscular Hulk Hogan.. For example, you're acting like every basketball player on a NBA is like 7'2. There are some women out there (who play) that are taller than some of the athletes that play in the NBA.
Thank you for this discussion/debate. I enjoyed it.
