There could be tons of reasons why women didn't do debate. My personal feeling was, its just a game.
When I first got into college, I was a drink. I loved beer pong, bar trivia, debate, Call of Duty, etc.
Most of the girls I knew liked recreation time too, but they were focused on things like grades, graduating
So maybe the women were just a little more mature, and didn't want to waste their time with a game that wasn't going to help secure them a job or education.
However, the debate community is so arrogant that they feel they are the end all be all of education and greatness, and feel everyone else should feel the same way. So there HAD to be more of a reason for women not to denbate than it was just not that important.
