    Have you watched the film bend it like beckham? That's a strong example, they don't let her play football because she's a girl.
    At what level?

    You do know that women's professional football does exist, right? :rolleyes:

    The fact that systematic oppression and discrimination is brushed away as "boys will be boys", "it's evolutionary", "they can't help it", "it's just how things are", proves that it is. No other -ism in society would be so protected or casually labelled as inevitable and moved on from.

    Absolutely, almost every strata of business, government, development and society is governed or predominately represented by Men.

    There will of course be exceptions in many circumstances, but the trend is clear.

    Damn right they do.

    And rightly so, I have never seen a female Athlete or team I prefer watching more than a male.

    Yes, sadly, I think male dominance is still present - the UK has still only had one female PM, and the US is yet to have a female President.

    Happily, I think male dominance on the way out, and that once it's gone, it will stay gone!

    Women in government is different though as they are elected. If people wanted more owmen in power then they would vote for them. Also far more men are going to be interested in politics than women (though not sure if this trait is due to natural brain differences or social pressures).

    Yes but I'm talking about her individually, HER family weren't exactly happy that she picked up a hobby that was football. If it was a guy, they would have let him go ahead with much less hesitation And is womens professional football enjoyed as much as mens?

    At the end of the day, it was her choice. No one can stop the girl playing football. For all people try to influence others and project onto them, they can't control someone else at will.

    And if not as many people buy tickets to attend womens football matches, then they obviously feel that they would not be entertained as much as they would if they attended a mens football match. Just the same principle applies when people decide to go to Premiership football matches rather than League 2 football matches. :rolleyes:

    You know, if I did witness such a situation it would indeed infuriate me. Although for extremely different reasons, I have to say. I don't look at everything through a Men vs. Women perspective.

    And also, I really don't see what you're trying to achieve in collecting confirmations from TSR members that we live in a male dominated society.

    Hi,
    I'm not collecting confirmations from TSR members, as you can see this is a debate, in debates we have to ask questions to points given.

    I'm just challenging your points and I can see that you have nothing more to say sir which is fine.

    Being the 21st century, 2013 we wouldn't really accept the fact that there is gender inequality but Is Male dominance still present in society?

    0<x>140
    It's all a question of definition. In Western countries are there any legal bars on full equality for women? No.

    But men continue to overwhelmingly dominate politics, law, the military, the university system, etc.

    I actually don't think we're doing too badly, considering it's only within the last 100 years that women have obtained their right to vote, and comparing that to all the rest of human history where men have completely dominated (with some exceptions).

    Humanity is changing slowly, but it's changing.

    All you've really done is tell me some story about a girl being depressed because someone said she shouldn't play football. I wouldn't call it a debate, lmao.
