Cultural Appropriation Should be Based on Intention Rather Than Race

AbbytheRitter
blackkid

I will be arguing that adopting aspects of another culture is not inherently wrong based on the race of the individual in question, but rather of their intention in doing so.I have seen people argue that, for example, a white person wearing a bindi or performing certain traditional religious customs are forms of cultural appropriation and are therefore inherently wrong.I disagree. I believe it is not wrong for a white person to wear a bindi if they have studied and truly believe...

Bogcha

As a student, I find myself surrounded by people who, not only seek to oppress and bully the people who are open and serious about their sexuality, but also label others as gay etc based on their outward appearances. why? it isn't like that when we grow up, is it? get jobs, start families? are we oppressed throughout our whole lives unless we go with the crowd? if that's the case and I, as well as other young people from all walks of life, am destined for, then why shouldn't I declare myself...

Legalization of Illicit Drugs

Drug prohibition has been a huge disaster with terrible consequences. Economics of legalization and drain on budget (prohibition) 1. More than $51,000,000,000 is spent on the war on drugs annually. 2. Tax revenue that drug legalization would yield annually, if currently-illegal drugs were taxed at rates comparable to those on alcohol and tobacco: $46.7 billion 3. Cartels' biggest selling drug is cannabis, legalization would give that money to legitimate businesses and the states through...

polygamy should be legalized

GOAT_23_6

I believe that polygamy should be legalized because scientifically it is a better way to spread genes for the better of the human race. also for those people who are super religious god never condones it much like he never straight up condones divorce. also there are numerous other religions that have polygamy as an accepted practice so isn't it against the constitution for them to deny you a wedding permit to marry multiple people. what about those people who love both man and women i myself am...

Same Sex Marriage

theisticscuffles

This is a debate on the legal institute of marriage, and the application to same-sex couples. First round is acceptance. Rules: (1.) DO NOT involve religion. Doing so will result in immediate forfeit of the debate. (2.) Keep it friendly. Coexistence is the key to these debates, keep it civilized. (3.) Do not include personal morals. Keep this debate purely intellectual and political. Comment below to apply, I will choose an opponent. This debate should be impossible to accept, doing so...
