My opponent ManPower believes that men are much better than women. I believe women should have the same amount of respect men get.

This dipstick thinks women are as great as Men. But who is it who really provides all the fundamental structure for society?! Men are much more successful than women and have a much higher average IQ. When you give control to lesser life forms all of society become negatively effected. You wouldn't give control to an animal would you? No, they are fit to be pets(slaves). women are merely in between a Man and an animal.

Thank you for posting your next argument.
Fist of all, one can not say that men are more successful then women. The reason why is because there is a lot of different types of people, some more successful than others. I do not know if you noticed but the leader debate.org is a women.
First of all women are not a lesser life. Second of all respect and control are to different things. Giving a women respect will not make her the leader of the world.
I would not give respect to an animal, but I would to a women.
Also, women are part of the fundamental structure for society. If there were no women, there would be no men. I look forward to your next argument.

You stated that the leading person on this site is a women. Does that make her more successful? No. It means she wastes more time in front of the computer instead of living a fruitful life.

Concerning control vs. respect; it is disrespectful to some to forcibly take away what control they have. Animals could rule in society but because Man is more able and successful than animals we take away their control and give it to ourselves. Men are better than women yet for some perverted reason we choose to respect them and give them control. Where is the logic in that? I say let the better rule.

Throughout history there have been great minds like Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler who saw that their was something wrong with society, then through their reasoning picked out the parasite that caused it, and then conceived a system which defeated that parasite. Marx said it class, Hitler said it was race, I say it's gender, it's that simple.

Thank you for posting your next argument.

Argument extended with the debate leader board. The woman is more successful debating.
Debating a waist of time is other matter which I will gladly debate with you after this one.

Your logic about Respect and control is not right.
You said, "Men are better than women yet for some perverted reason we choose to respect them and give them control"
The way you phrase that means that you are against men getting respect and control, since you are talking about the man.

Please explain yourself when it comes to Hitler, please give me the quote you are referring to.

I don't understand how you thought my statement implied that men not get respect and power, it implies exactly the opposite.

Do I REALLY need to go find a quote that shows Hitler had a problem with Jews?! REALLY?!

Thank you for posting your argument.

You have failed to do what I asked. I will try to explain the simple law of grammar.
Look at this example.

"An apple hangs on a tree like an orange, yet for some strange reason, it's red."
You are talking about the apple in the first place, just like you are talking about the man.

I noticed that you claim to be a Christian. God commands women to respect their husbands, but he also tells men to respect their wives.

Audience, please vote Pro.
ManPower

Con

In your analogy where you replaced giving control to women with the color red, implies that giving control to women is a fundamental piece of being a man. THAT makes no sense. My statement does.

The Holy Bible is the most sexist document I have ever read and it is what I shape my life around, I could not truly be Christian without being sexist. My father was a great man but he was far to submissive to that ***** he called a wife. She was always trying to take control even though my father was obviously the more dominant, intelligent and deserving person. One day he conjured the guts to realize what was happening and he put her in her place. But that wretched, lonesome species of his wife reacted like an animal and shot him, she was taken to jail, leaving me all alone, that is what feminism causes.

I say that both of you are wrong, women shouldn't get the same respect men get, because the assertion that men automatically get respect is completely wrong in the first place. Do you respect a man who live in his parents basement, one who cannot economically support himself, one who dropped out of school and/or is forced to live on the street ? Most likely, your answer is no. The people who are in the situations I mentioned above are mostly male. Men that are respected, have good-paying jobs and live successful lives. Men don't get respect, men must EARN it. Perhaps one mistake women do is that they fail to realize that, and instead just expects to get the same respect as the previous male boss got. Or perhaps men and women must use completely different strategies in order to gain respect. In that case, if something can be done, the goal should be to achieve equal OPPORTUNITIES for both parties.

How is it that men are any better than women? Women are just as powerful. Name one thing a man can do that a woman cant and I can probably prove you wrong.
