Does songs need to change?

BenjaminStigsen

When I debate I don't debate to be like "I have the facts and know what I'm talking about" I mostly debate because I want to hear opinions and different angles on certain topics. I know this has been a subject that has been going on for a very long time and it will keep being a topic that's going to be going on for a very long time. This is about the topics in songs. What I mean by that is songs that gets millions and millions of views for singing about money, women and drugs, while songs that m...

Jurrasic World was not Sexist.

Stwop12

When JW was released in 2015, there was some uproar regarding protagonist Claire Dearing's portrayal. Social Justice Worriers (SJW) accused the film makers of including a sexist stereotype in place of a strong female lead. They pointed to the character's arc, which dealt with Claire breaking out of her cold corporate exterior and embracing more motherly qualities, but primarily they spotlighted the character's excessive use of high heels, which even had her unbelievably running away dinosaurs in...

Long Island should be its own individual American State.

JENYS

Instead of having to listen to any of New York's governors and laws, how about listening to its own governor and laws? That way, if New York creates its own law that becomes problematic, Long Island won't be affected at all like it is now, and besides, I live in Long Island, located east of NYC and south of Connecticut. For example, if New York wants to ban pets from all hotels, Long Island may allow pets in hotels, but it's up to each hotel owner. Also, if New York wants everybody to take Spani...
