for a job that is the same, as in if you do the same job as a woman does, i dont think you should be paid more. women and men are equal and i think they should be paid the same amount if they are doing the same job.

i agree with my opponent that if women do the "same" job as men then they should get the same pay. The problem is that women simply cannot do the exact same job as men the same way they do it. If she could then she wouldnt be a women. Men also can't do the exact same job as women the same way they do it. So it holds that women by her very definition shouldnt be paid the same as men. nor men the same as women.

my opponent forfeited... what a fricken joke!

I'll say again that women might be better, or they might be worse. either way they are different, so their pay should be different.

But... they do get the same pay. the wage gap isn't because of sexism. It's because women work lower-paying jobs for fewer hours. https://www.bloomberg.com...

That is not the resolution. The resolution is: "i think women should get the same pay as men do".

The funny thing is, Con didn't refute the argument.

"i agree with my opponent that if women do the "same" job as men then they should get the same pay."

That was the resolution! So much for an actual debate...

Con: It'll be funny if you point out the vagueness in the Resolution. Instigator only says that women should get the same pay as men do. Which men? There are many different levels of income that men occupy. She could be arguing that women should get paid nothing at all, or she could be arguing that women should get paid an astronomical amount, both despite her views on "equality".

But don't do it anyway, because it'll be annoying.
