woman is inferior that is what i will be arguing for because there isn't any woman who is known for her intelligence! okay maybe like 1 marie curie no one else literally no one else! where are smart women? in the kitchen!
Danielle

Con

Indeed, Marie Curie is widely considered to be the smartest woman of all time.

But then there is also...

Emilie Chatelet, who combined Isaac Newton"s (IQ=215) definition of energy (E=mv) with Gottfried Leibniz" (IQ=200) definition of energy (E=mv") with Willem Gravesande"s brass balls clay surface impact experiments (see: Leiden University) to synthesize the first version of the conservation of energy (vis viva into vis mortua).

In ancient Greece, Hypatia was said to have had a superior intelligence which surpassed all of the other philosophers of her time, and her accomplishments in music and science paled all others. Her IQ was thought to be between 180 and 200. She qualifies as a genius.

http://www.eoht.info...

And what about Emmy Noether, who was described by David Hilbert, Albert Einstein and others as the most important woman in the history of mathematics? In physics, Noether's theorem explains the fundamental connection between symmetry and conservation laws.

http://www.eoht.info...

Surely history (and present day) is riddled with women who are incredibly smart. Yet that is irrelevant to the resolution. Pro has the burden of proving that women are overall inferior to men, and this means by any/many/all standards. Pro has thus far only introduced intelligence as a standard for superiority, but others ought to be taken into consideration. For example women can give birth; men can not.

Women also have a higher pain tolerance than men.

Women have better memories, are better multi-taskers, better decision making abilities, they're better at finding things and better at cooperating.

Moreover, Pro has failed to prove that women are of inferior intellect to men anyhow. And furthermore, lack of educational achievement for women overall could easily be attributed to social factors that have inhibited women from attending school (or thriving) in the past. As barriers are decreased, women consistently prove to have equal and greater strengths to men in different and similar regards, depending on the individual.

Pro has not fulfilled his burden.

that was like 5 woman but you can think of 1000 man any second and every one will be able to think of smart man most people in the world could not think of smart woman. woman only recently eclipsed man in average iq because school helps woman and bullies man and gay dont breed. IQ has dropped by 14 points since the Victorian era. Woman is leading the world into deeper and deeper degeneracy. Salon magazine posted a pro-pedophile article. What is up woman? Bruce Jenner is seen as a hero. He was in his mid-sixties when he decided to do this. He has young daughters who will no doubt be emotionally affected by it. This is because of woman. Woman cause man to act stupid. Woman make up 99% of hell's inhabitants according to the Hadith. Woman is better at making kids, woman have been more unhappy now with rights than before without rights. Woman is happier as a pet.

rapeiskindofok forfeited this round.

My opponent hasn't made a case for why women are inferior to men; he's simply argued that there have (allegedly) been more intelligent men than women in history. I pointed out that lack of educational achievement for women overall could easily be attributed to social factors that have inhibited women from attending school (or thriving) in the past. As barriers are decreased, women consistently prove to have equal and greater strengths to men in different and similar regards of intellect, depending on the individual.

Women have better episodic memory than men, which involves recalling and describing experiences and facts. Men"s edge over women in numerical abilities has somewhat narrowed, and women are getting smarter faster than men according to various global studies [1].

Pro hasn't proven that women's intellect is inferior even though it might be different.

"Sociology and Anthropology Studies show that women speak and think more in a web fashion. Men think and talk more like a tunnel... women have a broader and more empathetic understanding of undercurrents, sensitivities, and contexts. Women's 'web thinking' perceives many varied elements and connections" [2].

Consider the fact that women outscore men on IQ tests; women outscore men in trivia; and a 2008 Higher Education Policy Institute report said women are not only more likely to get into better schools, they"re also more likely to outperform the men once there [3]. This contributes to my theory that as women are given more opportunities to succeed (equal to men) they rise to the challenge of exemplifying intellect that is greater than or equal to their male peers.

Women are not inferior.

My opponent has not provided criteria for inferiority, nor has he responded to my claims.

PS. Rape is not even a little okay.

It's cruel to mock religion. Which many have done and will continue to do on this debate if no one steps up. Honestly, guys. You crossed the line back in Tallahassee. As a woman, I do admit that I am irked by these arguments Pro has posted. I would vote Con but, really, I think it's quite wise to stay out of this, guys. The debaters both have their issues. Please stop. Both genders are equal and complement each other. While men tend to 'go into battle' more, women have the wisdom to see past border lines, which men are sometimes incapable of. Together, both genders could change the world for the better. If I see another troller (in this case, someone who makes fun of Muslims or something like that) on here, I will report them, with the permission of the debaters.
Thanks,

Okay!

Note: I won't waste my time with you.. You can misquote and misinterpret Islam as much as you can. I can understand what your aim is, although that is my personal opinion.. But anyways....

@ssadi

Quran (2:228) - "and the men are a degree above them [women]"
Quran (4:11) - (Inheritance) "The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females" (see also verse 4:176).
Quran (2:282) - (Court testimony) "And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women."
Quran (53:27) - "Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names."
Bukhari (6:301) - "[Muhammad] said, 'Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?' They replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'"
Muslim (4:1039) - "A'isha said [to Muhammad]: 'You have made us equal to the dogs and the asses'"
Tabari Vol 9, Number 1754 - "Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals with you and do not possess anything for themselves."

You bring shame to Muslims, you are not a real Muslim, you haven't read the holy Qur'an, you certainly haven't read the Hadith! You are just another infidel dog!

Guys. rapeiskindofok is obviously a white troll, not a real Muslim. I took this debate because I assumed he is some lonely young adult with no friends at all, whose parents probably don't love him and don't pay any attention to him, and who obviously has never had a girlfriend. My response to his troll arguments is probably the only interaction with women he's had in his whole life where they weren't making faces of disgust in his direction, or making fun of him for lack of social skills (God only knows what he really looks like). Think about it -- if your life is SO PATHETIC that you waste time making fake profiles on debating sites (can you BE any more nerdy then debating sites?!) for attention from fellow geeks... man... I mean this person has probably attempted suicide at some point (and if he hasn't, he should consider it) so likeee let's not make fun of him for being a troll, ok? Let's feed into it because he is obviously really troubled. You have to be really pathetically desperate to do this for fun.

The way I see it, a) rapeiskindofok is like a dead giveaway of a profile name. b) This debate is stupid, because it is scientifically proven every woman has an equal chance to be just as intelligent as man I don't need a study to prove that either. c) A woman decided to debate you, which must prove her intelligence. Also if she wins said debate on better arguments (and conduct because you conduct sir is about as horrible as a goat's), then she is superior to you in an intelligence aspect. d) You have set yourself up for failure because you opening argument was poor.

Ya.

So this debate is dumb, and I want to vote on it later so that Danielle can get the win she is going to deserve.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro essentially argues that men are smarter than women; the warrant being there are more examples of smart men than women historically. Con provides multiple such examples and shows that women outperform men on IQ tests, trivia and in schools. Pro drops all the evidence and merely continues making assertions. Conduct: Pro forfeited two rounds.

Reasons for voting decision: PRO contended that women are inferior; with exception of 1, women are unintelligent. CON rebuts with several examples of prominent women of high IQs and states several other attributes that women possess. PRO rebuts that numbers of intelligent women are far out shinned by much higher numbers of intelligent men. CON also states that education of women has improved their IQ (counter- productive statement to his contention) Women are causal to degeneracy of the world with reasoning that women make men do stupid things. (How women accomplish this is not stated) CON continues that 99% of hells inhabitant are women (no reason why given) Most of CON?s statements are assertions with no support. CON fails to address PROS women?s attributes arguments and further fails to address the remaining of CON?s contentions due to FFs. Win to CON. S&G: CON, PRO lacked capitalization, misused punctuation and plauralizatrion errors. Conduct CON, due to FF
