Should schools be able to limit students' free speech in school?

kitkat8273
Food136

Schools should not be able to limit the online speech of students because it violates the First Amendment, it should be the parent's responsibility to limit their child's online time, and it's important for students to learn to deal with social issues on their own. The First Amendment states citizens are allowed to express and to be exposed to a wide range of opinions and views. It was intended to ensure a free exchange of ideas even if the ideas are unpopular. There are laws that if the opinion...

This debate is a part of the DDOlympics Debate Tournament described here: http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/91542/ We are part of Group D, and as such, this is the first of two debates that both ShabShoral and I will be participating in during the group stage of this tournament. That being said, I'm excited to debate ShabShoral on this intriguing topic, and I"m looking forward to having this debate with him.

Dog Fighting Should Be Legal

Danielle
ThinkBig

I would like to thank my opponent for agreeing to debate this with me. Dog fighting is a type of blood sport generally defined as opposing two game dogs against one another in a ring or a pit, for the entertainment of the spectators or the gratification of the dogfighters.Please note that just because I think dog fighting should be legal, doesn't mean I think it is good.The first round will be for my contender's acceptance. I look fo...

Justification for neonatal male circumcision

AltoInferno
G3PF

Hello, and to whoever may be my contender and peers for this debate, welcome. To start this off, I am a circumcised male who believes that the routine circumcision of infants, for non therapeutic or non religions reasons (though I would argue against those reasons as well, but that is for another debate), is not medically justified, and violates both the circumcised individuals freedom of choice, and the doctor's "do no harm" Hippocratic Oath. A sample of the reasoning and justifications f...

Homeless people are homeless by choice

Malik1228
apple9530

The "homeless person" is either making calculated and immoral choices to be homeless, or they are perceived to be powerless agents who lack the capacity to exercise choices. I live in NYC and the amount of homeless people I see is disgusting, are people just that lazy to get a job....

Gay marriage should be illegal

tejretics
Cooldudebro

Pro should begin arguing in Round 1 and post only "no round as agreed" in the final round; we each have 3 total rounds to argue. [Arguing that same-sex couples can have equal rights without use of the word "marriage" is not allowed, since that's entirely semantic, and the resolution concerns the institution of gay marriage itself, not what we call it.]...

There are times both in which abortion should and should not be allowed

InsaneSanity
Geogeer

I should clarify my position because the title isn't long enough to accurately describe it. I am arguing that there are certain times when abortion is wrong and should not be done, and there are times that it is acceptable. Con will try to prove that it is either always acceptable or always wrong. Rules: - Obviously, there will be no attacks on people and no anger. We are debating, not having an online shouting match (as happened between some idiots in my third period today but in person)...

Whaleiams
PowerPikachu21

According to the dress code of most public schools around the world, hats shouldn't be worn inside the school building. Do you agree that hats are disrespectful, distracting, and dangerous, or do you think that hats give personality, pleasure, and positivity?...

If you voted for Donald Trump you are racist.

Yes, this can be proven time and time again. The Klu Klux Klan, publicly endorsed Donald J. Trump. And recently, he came out with a "Muslim Ban" that would lead many people to believe that his agenda is to create fear in minorities....
