The Massachusetts Man Suffrage Association argued that women's suffrage would not have a significant effect on government. Their argument was that it is the proportion of votes which decides issues, not the total number of votes. They also argued that women do not have better mental or moral characteristics than men, so that their votes would not have a sufficient impact. This article is interesting in that the men argue that women should not have suffrage "imposed" upon them, as if it would be a burden.
