Men and women are equal. I will argue that this statement is false. My opponent will argue it's true.

Rules: No new arguments in R4

Men and women are equal, I will argue this is true.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

Men and women are not equal. Due to evolution (or "god" if you are one of the cray crays), men and women have evolved into different roles. Men are better at being the hunter/provider type, and women are better at being the nurturing/mother type. Of course, these are generalizations, but since we are talking about men and women and general, we will be speaking in generalizations.

Because of these differences, men and women have different strengths and weaknesses as well (in general). Men can build muscle easier than women can, for example. http://www.livestrong.com...

The list of course goes on and on, but in order for a statement to be false, only ONE example needs to be given.

Men and women are not equal because men can build muscle easier.

Men and Women have equal abilities, there are both female and male athletes, there's female presidents and male presidents and also female soldiers.

There's males and females practically almost everywhere, they appear different however their abilities are almost the same.

Also women can take pain as well (pregnancy), meaning they take more pain than men.

Men take pain by fighting, injuries or war.

Human beings aren't different in any way, they both have abilities whether male or female.

You fail to understand the definition of equal. Similar does not mean equal. It means similar.

Equal means the exact same.

Yep, I failed to understand what you meant. I've lost.

Jammie, like I said, give me the definition of equal YOU would like to debate, and if I agree with it, I'll accept.

If you define, I will debate

But yet again you need to specify. Any reasonable person can agree men and women are unequal biologically, yet some may argue they are equal in the eyes of the law. Do you understand what I mean? If you don't define 'equal' then we cannot debate.

I was just curious what you wanted to argue; I meant equal as in equal...same strengths, weaknesses, etc....

You are the instigator. How I would define 'equal' is of no importance. If you define equal then we can get somewhere but otherwise I wouldn't bother as I have no clue as to how I would argue my side. You could mean equal in law, in society etc. Me and others need more information.

How would you define it?

Jammie
I would be interested to debate this with you, yet you have not defined 'equal'. It would be easier for me and others if you could include more detail. Thank you

If you're arguing against that statement being false, then aren't you arguing that it's true, too?

Reasons for voting decision: Pro conceded, although Con was a bit rude when pointing out Pro was at fault in definitions. Also, this means the instigator defined in R3, which is another example of bad conduct. Instigator should have defined all terms in R1.
