Should the man decide whether or not the woman has an abortion?

lazanya27

Well, it should most definitely be more in favor of the woman's choice. The woman, the one that would have to actually give birth to and care for the child, would/should definitely know the risks of having a baby. The men don't have to participate in caring for the child, but don't tell the woman that she can't have her own baby! It's her body, and she has every right to do what she wants with it, so back off....

I'm the biggest Tolkien fanatic!

9spaceking

I am willing to assume that I am the most fanatical about John Ronald Ruel Tolkien's mythopia on this website. I believe I know more about it than anyone else (with the exception of being able to speak any of his languages). I would love to see someone beat me so I know I am not a loner on this subject. In the first round you must state 1. approximately how long you have been a fan. 2. what books you have read and how many times. 3. what nationality you are. I have been a fan from...

Gay Marriage

Why are so many people against gays and gay marriage? Most of the people that oppose gay marriage make claims that it's against their religion. Everyone else seems to be making idiotic claims based on hate alone. My question is, what is it to you? Why do you care? Please, I want a good clean debate. Don't accept the debate if you don't intend to actually debate....

Sexual penetration of any kind is a form of rape.

KristinaC
emospongebob527

Disclaimer: I am not a radical feminist, but this is an idea that is rather interesting, and I actually think is based in truth. The Argument: Sexual penetration of any type is a form of rape. Sexual penetration = the act of penetration for sexual stimulation. Rape = the compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse. This argument includes but is not limited to sexual penetration commited by one's self, with permission, and by any object. While ori...

Essential state services should not be privatized

udongnoodles1211
Ameliamk1

The privatization of state services will only be disastrous, and as it will only result in the future as a huge mistake. In this debate, I'll define 'essential state services' as 'state services which are always needed for citizens to live with comfort, such as medical services or in the case of South Korea, train services and etc'. Moving on to my argument, our first argument is about rights. Ladies and gentleman, privatization will only result in people becoming unable to use the services p...

Competition is good for success.

ahro0703
Dennybug

Success is about working hard to do your best. Competition helps people to learn about their abilities and to create a plan for improvement. These skills are very valuable in the world as well. People can't choose their career paths well without knowing their strengths and weaknesses. The same is true in the world beyond schools. When a company hires an employee, it wants to see that this new employee has the ambition and the drive to succeed. A company also wants new employees who can identify...
