Modern Feminism is Necessary

Mister_Man
dietorangesoda

Dietorangesoda and I have talked before about the necessity of feminism in the west, and have happily agreed to have a debate about it! So here we are now.For the sake of this debate, we have agreed that we will only refer to feminism in America and Canada. I'm more than happy to agree that feminism (or a form of women's/human rights movements) are needed in many parts of the world, especially developing countries. But for this debate, we are talking about the necessity of femin...

Open Campus Lunch

JAD13
Mia13

Students should be allowed to leave school for lunch. They should be able to leave school grounds because it gives students a sense of trust and responsibility. For example if a kid were buying lunch at a sandwich shop and had the choice between a bag of Cheetos or a vege sandwich. In this moment he is making a choice if he chooses the healthier option it proves that he is making a responsible choice for his body....

Biotechnology

Biotechnology The newly-formed technology creates plants that uses a lot of soil"s resources and loses its ability to continue growing crops in the future, even when crop rotations are used. It can take a very long time (might take several years) for the soil used for growing these crops to recover from just 2-3 years of biotech plants being grown. All plants have that characteristic level of cross-pollination. When biotech plants have come into contact with normal crops, the hybrids that are...

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheist know truth from fiction?...

Bound_Up
Hayd

Actually the 1st Amendment just prohibits Congress from passing certain kinds of laws, like ones that take away free speech. "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech." Doesn't say that state governments can't pass laws that take away free speech. Or that local governments can't. Or that your sc...

I am challenge samaya to this debateThe resolution: A Totalatarian State is more effective than a Democratic StateI will be arguing for the stance of a moderate Totalatarian state where people still elect leaders but it is only one party. This party controls everything but has some exceptions to its power such as rights of the individuals. It is somewhat constrained by things like the U.S constitution. However it can bypass things such as a senate and a ho...
