Punishment for sexually abusing a 4 month old infant

bearski
Reductio

A 12 year old girl has been found guilty of aggravated sexual abuse of a 4 month old girl. The judge has sentenced her to die in the gas chamber. Most people believe that is an excessive, unreasonable, and unnecessary punishment. But there is disagreement over whether the girl should be sent to the women's prison to be punished or to a juvenile treatment center to be rehabilitated. Pro will choose whether to sent the child to prison or to a treatment facility Con (me) will oppose whatev...

Should people be allowed to have complete freedom of speech?

EljayShaun
EverlastingMoment

I'd like to debate about freedom of speech/ expression, mostly media censorship, but also in other areas of life. My stand is everyone should be given complete freedom of speech. Anyone should be able to express their views without restrictions, and at the same time, no one should be held legally responsible for any views or opinions they express. Just a quick example, if someone posts on a social media website, "All Muslims are terrorists and deserve to be killed!", my stand is that this person...

fgandler
Emmarie

Hard work or talent? People have been debating on this almost everywhere. These words are creators of many things, such as buildings, art, culture, etc, they all came to be because of hard work. Research shows that hard work is more successful than talent. Hard work is essential in one's life and is more important than talent because it guarantees success and talent can"t exist without it. Hard work is really important; it guarantees success and therefore is essential in life. As shown in the v...

TH will tax the rich and give to the poor

DebatingTZK
warmsoup

I agree with this statement. Some rich people look down on the poor and do not bother to donate money. If all rich people were kind, generous and caring, poverty would have become a much rarer thing and the world might and could have become a better and more caring place to live. Taxing the rich ensures this as many are not bothered or are too greedy and selfish that they do not want to donate. So, to help the poor gain some money for their lives and their families, taxing the rich would b...

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...

why we should not have zoos

mmmmmmmmmm
Zack28180

I believe that we should ban zoos because they do a lot of harm. First of all it is a lot of money to care for all the animals. The zoo has to pay for its new habitat, the food and water and they need medical care sometimes as well. It is hard to pay for that so then the animals wont be getting what they need because the zoo cant afford it. Second of all the animals Cant learn to hunt, the food is just set in front of them. If animals are born into the zoo they have know experience with the outd...

Jerry947 has claimed that "people have no right to get themselves killed [by euthanasia]." In this debate, I hope to convince him and the audience that he is incorrect. Should he accept this debate, I will begin my arguments in Round 2. Thanks....

The English Language Doesn't Have OFFICIAL Rules

Owlblocks
missmozart

The English language does not, nor can have, official rules. This is because the English language is a commonly agreed upon way of speaking that evolved over time and still evolves. Some might say that Oxford, or some other authority has the authority to determine the language's rules, and while these are generally accepted from an academic standpoint, the English language is a template upon which we build our own, personal interpretation. If Oxford had invented the language, they would have aut...

Marijuana Legislation should not pass.

LifeLightI
magic_magpie

Medical marijuana as well as recreational use of marijuana should not be legalized in the United States. I do not live elsewhere so i wont include any other countries. Medical marijuana may have certain benefits, but they are not benefits that out do any other type of medication allotted. Marijuana is a drug. It fogs up your brain and changes your perceptional views of reality; as well as your five sense. Cocaine is also a drug. Cocaine has some benefits. It wakes you up. So should cocaine be...
