Team Debate: On balance it is acceptable for men to objectify women

Mikal

As promised I would do more team debates in my term to spark better debates. I have gotten so much flack for my recent debate where people "rated models". Thus I am affirming the resolution that it is alright to objectify women. Resolution - It is acceptable for men to objectify women Terms acceptable - Able to be agreed on; suitable. Defensible , acceptable objectify - Degrade to the status of a mere object. To treat (someone) as an object rather than as a person This is a...

I think that the eleventh doctor and seventh doctor are the best. The eleventh doctor's boundless enthusiasm gave the viewers a sense of wonder on to what there is to come. His playful eccentricity gave you the impression that the Doctor was an unpredictable alien. But most importantly during his era the writers played with the idea that the Doctor may not be a good man but most certaintly he is a madman with a box. The seventh doctor was a dark incarnation it showed how much of a "villain" the...

I don't understand why Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton decided make a movie Threatening the life of North Korea Leader Kim Jong- Un thinking that it would funny.

I don't condone the that course of action Kim Jong - Un has taken to retaliate but what would you do if your life was threaten....

Romania was a more helpful ally to Nazi Germany than Italy during WWII.

Oliark

As I am currently obsessed with the whole World War II time period, I decided that this would be an interesting, not to mention original, debate to create. The premise will be as followed: Romania was a more helpful ally to Nazi Germany during the entirety of World War II than Italy was. I will provide a few definition/clarifications just to be safe.
