Homosexual couples can raise children just as well as heterosexual couples.

Danielle
MouthWash

This debate is based on my opponent's assertion that homosexual couples cannot raise children as well as heterosexual couples. He's agreed to debate me on this topic before; however, due to my work schedule I was unable to participate and had to forfeit. Apparently he has a lot of credible sources to back up his point of view. While I don't care about the automatic loss, I'd like the opportunity for my opponent to defend his beliefs. I'm planning on taking Thursday off, so hopefully that plus th...

I've avoided this topic for too long, mostly because of my religious background and only I have only recently known a different path, atheism. Burden of proof will be upon Con, my opponent 51%. This is due to the nature of morals, actions are considered moral until proven otherwise. Just as a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Should kids (12 and under) have a cell phone?

TheBlackDragon04
Miriam14

Kids should not have a cell phone, because they are traveling into a era that they do not fully understand. They will be immature with it, and not actually use it for any emergencies. Think about it for a second. A maniac/raper is chasing you with a knife. While you are running for your life, do you really have time to call 911. No! Because you are trying to get out of there! Let me give you another situation. You just got into a severe car accident, would you call 911 or home to get help? Well,...

Extralulu12

Humans are definitely to blame for animal extinctions. We kill animals for our own personal gain. We destroy their habitats for our own personal gain. We kill them if and when they're inconvenient to us....

domestico violence against women should prevented by addressing male's psychological attitude

Andrea75
Mharman

it's well know that high percentage of women suffer from domestic violence. many studies has been conducted trying to focus on the causes of this violence. all these studies identified the risk factors in the attitude of male to maintain power and control. but the conventional approach to this problem is to punish Male's violence once the abuses already occurred. from my point of view it should be more useful to intervene by applying a psychological analysis to male who are usually at high risk...
