Nowadays, women drink alcohol more than part. Every party must have alcohol drink and women drink it like a man. Drinking alcohol of women is seemed to be a normal thing. In my opinion, women should not drink alcohol for three reasons. First, it looks bad when women are drunk. You will say and will do everything by lose senses. It is very shameful. Second, drinking may ruin your future. You cannot protect yourself when you are drunk so you may have chance to be raped. You may lose virginity and be pregnant. You may out of school or university and may have abortion. Finally, drinking is not good for your health. Alcohol has affect to your health for a long time. If you drink it too much, you will fat and will be cirrhosis. If you pregnant, it will also affect to your baby. So women should not drink alcohol from these reasons. What is your opinion?

First I think, that nearly every argument, you found is not only suitable for women (okay, maybe the pregnancy and abortion should been left out...). Why ist there a difference between women drinking alcohol and men, who do so? Why is it worse, when women drink?

The second thing is.... of course alcohol is dangerous, if you drink too much, but in moderation it is like sweets. I guess there is no point in forbidding people, especially women, who (in my experience) are more responsible with( Sad that was the wrong preposition....) that topic, to drink alcohol. That's like a prohibition of coffee or something similar.

I really don't see why is it that women should not be allowed to drink. Men get drunk just as much as women. Alcohol (in large amounts) is dangerous to their health just as much. I agree with what the person above me (Anxi) had said--alcohol is like sweets, if you know your limits and know how to drink in moderation, there is really no reason for you not to drink (except when you are pregnant, of course).

Another thing is that if a woman is drunk, it doesn't give a right to any man to rape her. The fact that so many men have this mentality, that if a woman is drunk it's ok to rape her, shows that there's a problem in our society, not that women don't know how to handle alcohol.

Hi, I am not drink alcohols a lot but I think it is OK women drink alcohols. I agree with your third reason. I think alcohol does not any good for peopleís health. ÖBut donít you think itís same as men drink alcohols?? And also I think men look bad when they are drunk too. Donít you think it is shameful too??
Drinking alcohols are not good for the health but I think it is all their responsibility how much they drink and if you havenít drink much you donít make any trouble with men and also can have a fun time with your friend. So I dont think "women should not drink alocohols".
Hope youíll understand my opinion. Thanks.

I donít think that woman should not drink alcohol. It is same things that drunken man and women, because I often see man who drunk and doing stupid things. I think drunken men do shame things as well as women. If someone, who drunk, got pregnant, it is her fault, I think. Of course, I donít think that we should not consider all fault on her, but she might have controlled that her limit. If woman know her limit, she can avoid rape. I agree your 3rd opinion. But if we know our limit, I think it is good for your health!!! In our country, the proverb says that alcohol is master of hundred medicines.
So, I think it is OK that woman drink alcohol.

Absolutely right!!! Every person (man or woman) can decide should he/she drink alcohol or not... It's their own business... And let women drink, let their be drunk like a men - it will be fair. Am i right?
