Should Harambe be a meme?

I hear the name "Harambe" a lot, mainly on YouTube. But is he really that special? I personally don't think so.Rules:1) Burden of Proof is shared. I must show that Harambe isn't worth being a meme. The Contender must show Harambe should be a meme.2) Just because it is so, that does not make it good. Arguments like that are Appeal to Tradition. Saying Harambe's a meme, so it should be so, is fallicious.3) Forfeiting counts as an inst...

Here are some terms that need to be defined: Transgender - Noting or relating to a person whose gende...

Wylted
ThinkBig

I don't like posting a bunch of rules because honestly everything should be up to debate, so just first round for acceptance, and the topic is the resolution. Society in the topic line assumes a modern 1st world country just to simplify things, and so the debate does not get off topic....

Veganism

Lets get something straight. There is something seriously wrong with our society. We have actually turned animals, that think and feel, into sandwiches and coats. What is wrong with us. Good people follow the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Animals qualify as others. They do because they feel like we do. Pain, fear, grief etc. Meat, dairy and egg eaters don't care about animals. They don't care about what pain they cause on others. As long as they get their...
