Feminism

dwcyrus

I believe that Feminism is coming out of hand. At first it was a good cause and was for woman rights but now they are taking it too far. I believe feminism is the equality of woman but I also believe we've already got to that point. I think what some feminists don't understand is that some woman like being a stay at home mom and by them still pursuing it it makes them feel inferior. I've also met some feminist who say that they think that woman are superior and I do not think that is anywhere ne...

The United States Is A Christian Nation

Oxymoron
Magicr

Thesis: The United States was heavily influenced by Christianity and its basic tenets and are thus a Christian Nation. As Pro, I will defend the resolution by making it clear that the Founders explicitly state that they and the United States were molded by Christianity. First Round Is For Acceptance What I Mean By Christian Nation:

Death penalty is never justified, under any circumstance

I thank wrirchcirw for agreeing to debate this resolution. This debate is mostly a culmination of some things I’ve been reading up on local news, and my reaction to them. For the purpose of the debate, I’ll be arguing that Death penalty is never justified.Some definitions before we get started:Death penalty- also referred to as capital punishment. Execution of an offender sentenced to death...

A Good Debate on Gay Marriage

bsh1
InVinoVeritas

Thanks to everyone who expressed interest! Preface:I have seen many, many debates on Gay Marriage here on DDO--most of them are poorly constructed and not well thought-out. As someone who is gay, I also feel a need to set the record straight (pun intended) on many of the homophobic comments present in many of those debates. Therefore, to get this frustration out of my system,I would like to have a formal, polite, and high-quality debate on the permis...

cute_angel

Women are paid about 77 cents to every dollar a man makes. Women are also not commonly found in high power positions, especially in the government. For example, only about 20% of congress is female. This is not because there aren't enough very qualified women for the job. In my opinion as a man, I have found educated women to be much more rational than educated men. Women are objectified and dominated by men. What do you think?...

The United States should conquer Africa

BlackVoid

Blackvoid and I agreed to have this debate over Christmas break. I understand that he's currently busy, but I figured it better to send the challenge sooner rather than later, to better answer any questions. Specifications on the exact meaning of "conquer" and "Africa" will be elaborated on in the next round (don't worry, I'm not going to pull any semantic tricks.) Debaters are permitted to make a seperate debate to place their citations in, to save characters.A...
