Bullying is a good and essential aspect of childhood and should not be abolished

CalRed
Stuhan18

In schools, there is an effort to get rid of bullying as some kids have committed suicide as a result. I agree that extreme bullying and bullying in General should not be tolerated, however the focus should be on empowering students to face bullying, stand up for themselves and others, and develop a backbone. Unfortunately with the emphasis on the bully and getting rid of bullying so much kids lose important opportunities to defend themselves or be courageous in the face of peers. Being bullied...

Examples: Using a condom, Background checks (ie: knowing the person well for a few months befo...

Homosexuality is quite unnatural!

WildMick
Fuzzed

Last year a certain Lynnette Cowper on www.patheos.com purported to show seven "iron-clad" reasons (at least she thought so) why homosexuality is NOT unnatural! Without going into great detail concerning her "refutations", suffice it to say that essentially she based her argument predominately on the notion that because homosexuality occurs elsewhere in nature (i.e., within other species), homosexuality is "natural". But what she failed to consider is that the term unnatural has other equall...

Should prostitution be illegal, while pornography is not?

Link123109
Biodome

No, prostitution should not be illegal if pornography is not. They are literally the exact same thing, save for a camera. Pornography is defined as "printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings." While prostitution is defined as "the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for payment." Pornstars are people who actually do this for a livin...

On balance, the world would better if there was one language everyone could speak

RoyalFlush100
Zariah

Pro (me) has to prove that the world would be better if there was one language everyone could speak and Con has to prove that the world would be worse if there was one language everyone could speak. First round is acceptance only. Con cannot introduce any new arguments in the final round as Pro has no chance to rebut it (only respond to anything Pro said). We'll say for the debate that there would be one language in everyday use, but some may still study others (like people do today wit...

Being a pedophile is not morally wrong

Canuckleball
creedhunt

I feel that being a pedophile is not inherently wrong. I would argue that it is a serious mental disorder that should be treated and hopefully cured, and would encourage someone who deals with these urges to seek professional help without fear of being shunned by society. Let me be very clear: ABUSING A CHILD IN ANY WAY IS WRONG. No one in their right mind would argue that taking any action that harms, threatens, intimidates, or discomforts a child, especially by a person in a position of po...

Should Dzhokhar Tsarnaev face a death penalty from the Boston Marathon bombings?

sassypup419
TBR

I think Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should face the death penalty. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should because he hurt and killed more than dozens of innocent people. He could've also been working along side Isis. He did this because he didn't care about what people thought. Minutes after the bombing, him and his brother walked into a market like they didn't care or know what just happened. He caused the death of an eight year old boy. He caused a runner losing both of their legs and ending up with prosthetics. It i...
