Heavy stuff philosophy argument diagram

    Can someone summarize the arguments in this passage using premises and conclusions.
    I appreciate ANY feedback you can offer.
    "Voting Rights for Children"
    There is a gaping inconsistency in th logic of our democracy in denying children this fundamental democratic right. Many argue that children haven't the intelligence and experience to vote in a meaningful way. this argument was used years ago as a reason for denying non-male, nonwhite people the right to participate in elections. Nobody;s intelligence or experience is of more vlaue than someone else's. We all bring our own attribute to the ballot box whenwe select a candidate.
