'Women Might Get Raped If They Debate Men', So This College Debate Tournament Banned Men

Via TheCollegeFix.com,

It’s unfair. It’s sexist. And women might get raped.

That’s why a “special [debate] tournament” held at the University of Vermont this past weekend banned men from competing, organizers and participants in the North American Women’s and Gender Minorities Debate Championship told the Associated Press.

Rather than admit the deep sexism inherent to their view, they claim that women “have to be that much better than men to overcome bias on the part of many judges” and “point to statistics that show they are less likely to reach the top echelons of the activity”:

“There is also a lot of sexual predation that happens in the debate community,” said UVM debate director Helen Morgan-Parmett.

“The tournament, I think, provides a safe space where people feel they are debating other women, and their bodies aren’t necessarily on display.”

Intercollegiate debates have been gender-integrated for six decades but women still lag in participation. Sarah Sahagian, program director for Speech and Debate Canada, said women simply can’t measure up yet:

I think even when I was a participant there were women who did well, there were women who won things, but on average, the average female debater did not do as well. Disproportionately, male debaters did better.

Headline should read "women admit to being inferior".

If you are equal, then you should be embarrassed by affirmative action and other forms of *help*.  Non whites and now women admit they can't cut it on an equal basis.  I LOL at their foolishness.

Take away their vote and make them one again property of their fathers/husbands UNTIL they demand to be equal without special help.

Methinks she doth protest too much.  Dollars to donuts that there is a chubby girl furiously spanking her monkey hoping to be taken with force on their planning committee.  The fat hogs that attend something like this event are hoping to be raped.  It seems like an engraved invitation.  Kind of turns me on them advertising so blatantly for it.  But as I said "fat hog".  I am sure the best way to get them lubed up would be to rub your tallywacker in bacon grease.  And that is what you call "boner kill"

Yes, a lot of predators in debating clubs. All jocks, frat boys, minority athletes get on debating teams just to hit on the women. However, it also seems like all these jocks, frat boys, minority athletes are still better debaters than the girls.

It's like David Hogg. As he makes his inane fiery speeches, you can see his eyes ogling the girls, looking up their skirts and down their blouses. He's definitely a debate predator. A master debate predator. Watch out girls!

Women need to learn to take soft 'advances' in their stride. Just don't react; males are like that because they often use another part of their anatomy than the brain for thinking.

If the 'advances' come within arm's length they can hit hard on the temple with their knuckles. This could fell the male and the female can walk away. If one is lucky he won't get up ever which could (perhaps) prompt other males to start thinking with grey cells. 

Remember: The length of one arm.

Smart men admit to reality. My gender bungil, short for wedge tail eagle, would I want to debate with a bunch of women, would I need to be banned from attending, are you fucking kidding, absolutely 'NO'.

The Women's Department of Redundancy Department, banned men from attending an argument amongst women, to date zero men have been barred from attending, it is expected no other men will also be refused entry, although it is hoped that some women will invite some men, so that the men can be barred from entering.

Else the ban would be considered redundant, although that is within the guidelines of the Women's Department of Redundancy Department, it is hoped that at least some men, who were invited (forced by their spouse to attend the non attendance) will be redundantly refused entry, in order to justify the redundant banning of the attendance of men.

There is no case for equality, and their banning of men means they know it.

Either, everything is in fact racist and sexist, as feminists claim; even Uber. Or, the emperor simply has no clothes. Affirmative action has proven that some people have to be handicapped to give others a fighting chance at equality.

👉 Equality is nothing more than a myth, a religion. It doesn't exist beyond a belief.

Women do not claim to be fully equal to men in the world of sports. They do claim to be fully equal to men in the world of intellect and assertiveness. If they demand recognition of such equality, they should compete for it on a level playing field.

I personally think America should have an all-woman army, no men allowed. That way, when America loses its next war, we can say, "Well, no wonder we lost. It was just a bunch of girls."

Ok. Let's go there.

You will not find a Miss Universe in VT.

LL Bean reigns Supreme. In a way there's a reason for that. Weather, non- cosmopolitan, comfy, etc.

But over time, it breeds SLOPPY. Combine it with outdoorsy, yankee do it yourselfer and you may not have a lesbian, but you have a woman who looks like she may be.

Then the lack of esteem, introversion, and way too much exposure to earthy crunchy commies and you get this.

This is laughable and truly pathetic.

Please do not send your kids here. Even if they ski.

College fix comments are great lmao:

"Ah the good old days when it was ok to rape the female debaters right on stage."

 

"Headline: Men banned because women deemed themselves too fragile to compete with them. If they're worried about being raped, they should concealed carry and shoot somebody that tries to rape them."

What's that you imply? Women not using logic, reason and having their judgement swayed by emotion? Inconceivable! I've got two women, both heads of departments that both believe the other is being uncooperative. Both need to work with each other to make their lives and work easier, guess who's department is stuck trying to get them to work it out, yep mine. It's hell, they will not even sit together to discuss what can and cannot be done to resolve the issue.
