Womens rights are one of the dumbest things in todays society. men and women are in no way equal and should not be given the same opportunity in the career field. Not that women are useless or anything, just that they are not fit for the same things as men are and we should not be given equal rights.

Thank you for this opportunity

If I am correct, your making a narrow argument regarding women rights as it relates to employment. You assert that women should not be protected by the 14th amendment since they cannot physically do everything a male can do. My opening statement will challenge that position only. If your argument is more broader to include all women rights--such as privacy rights as it relates to abortions or voting rights then I will address them later. You make two central points in your argument: [1] Women rights are no longer needed today [2] Women cannot perform some tasks that men. I will address them below.

Women cannot perform some tasks that men

I will start out be tackling your second position first. You assert that there are career fields that should exclude women because they are not suited for them. First, you failed to identify one such occupation that you refer to. It is impossible for me to rebut this argument until you provide such examples. Second, and more importantly, women rights as it relates to employment do not force an employer to hire woman based on her gender--it simply makes illegal for employers to deny employment, promotion or any employee related benefit due to it.

Women rights are no longer needed today

The points asserted in your argument is precisely why women rights are still needed today. Unfortunately, even in the face of many women currently working in male dominated professions, there are some males that would agree with your position. Even today, the income gap between women in certain career paths lags that of men in the same field of work. Hopefully one day there would be no need for women rights, but not until people such as yourself changes their mind sets.

thank you and I look forward to your response

Reasons for voting decision: Con's forfeit was a conduct violation and pro pointed out that women's rights only protect them from being discriminated against for their sex and does not provide protection against being unqualified for the job.
