Quebec Separatism

comport
Buyhers86

I feel that as a self-proclaimed minority, Quebec is taking advantage of the rest of the Canadian provinces, they use our federal government's money, they are given all the same health benefits, and they are in most cases admired by English-speaking Canadians. Maritimers often journey out to the great city of Montreal, to vacation and embrace the French culture. Meanwhile the Francophone are loathing the Anglophones, and wishing they could be rid of us, and rely on themselves rather then the Can...

With even pages to report people. Also we are warned about this on tv at school and we only go online to chat to friends and meet friends friends....

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

The first round is for the laying down and acceptance of the match rules. The second round is for saying our opinion and reasoning. The third round is for arguments against the opinions. The fourth round is for the summary and closing statements. If my opponent chooses to accept the challenge, these are the rules we shall follow....

Feminism is used against men.

salshasam

First round will be an acceptance round. I think feminism is used against men and is insane. My opponent (obviously) will think the opposite. After an opponent has been chosen, we both will come up with rules. 4 rounds (1 acceptance round) translates to 3 rounds....
