Are femenists just blowing air through their lips? Are feminists just women who hate men?

Chrystahist
toughenough

No. Just no. When people point out injustices or things they see as unfair, I believe it is completely unfair to just point out and say that they are trying to be victims.

Marijuana legalization

Gogert777

No acceptance, lets just go. Legalizing would make America's drug problem spiral out of control. Marijuana should not be legalized because there is already a weed drug problem in the US. Who is to say that said person would not pick up a bat and beat someone to death due to their impaired mental state? Marijuana impairs judgement on all levels. Marijuana is known to kill brain cells, smoking weed is a disturbing trend. Young people need to keep their minds sharp. There are far too ma...

mrPrime
Swedishperspective

Standard debate format for response: Greeting and/or Opening Rebuttal Rebuttal Closing General conceptions are fine but please cite any statistical data. You are welcome to bring up income inequality but please state explain how this hinders one from having a full and satisfactory lifestyle....

1 gapping should be federal law or at least a social norm.

I hate people that don't one gap, and think it's absurd not to. No I won't define 1 gapping, and yes we'll be using my definition. It will be a fair definition and if you don't know what one gapping is you're probably one of those jerks that don't do it anyway, so I want to debate you....

Is acts of terrorism beneficial to the world?

Misunderstood_Principle
funnycn

I have been researching a lot lately to take my mind off the news and what's going on in the world. However, I believe that under specific circumstances that a act or terrorism could be essential to the world/ benefit mankind by bringing us together and or by lowering human population. Martain Luthur King was considered a terrorist among several other Human rights freedom fighters throughout american history but, Before I get to deep prewarning I am picking a VERY touche' topic here. Are Acts su...
