The first round will be to establish some rules and someone to accept the debate. I will be standing as neg. Rules: -Keep this formal. No insulting, no bias. Facts. This will make the argument much easier to do. -You don't have to cite sources, but please make sure you know what you're talking about. -No trolls. Looking forward to a good debate. (Don't get offended, it's my catchphrase) May the best douche bag win....

Hamas are justified in their actions

While some mainstream media may have a pro Palestinian bias, I have found it is rare to find any that actually voice support for Hamas. In fact they are considered terrorists almost universally, even by 'so called' neutral media. I'm taking this position on what is Hamas' current position as I do realize that documents such as the Hamas Charter of 1988 are deeply antisemitic and were made back in a time when Hamas were bitter following a succession of failed battles. I'm excited to take a de...

Should being a member of a group diqualify a person for a position

jakelittle135

There are certain organizations which people may have belonged to that automatically inform people about their political philosophies and prejudices such as belonging to and representing the NAACP,ACLU, or the KKK. Yet in the past members of these organizations have held positions in which unbiased opinions from those holding such positions were expected to be unbiased in rendering their decisions effecting the public. Isn't it, when allowing persons who have belonged, to and in some cases rep...

Gay Marriage should be legalized

Danielle and I are both from America so for the sake of simplicity this is in reference to American policy. Nobody below 2500 ELO can vote on this debate. The reason is to eliminate some bias which is always present in issues like this while being as inclusive as possible with the voting. Danielle feel free to start arguments in first round and pass in last or to just accept...

warren42
TBR

This debate was inspired by director Michael Moore's tweet calling snipers cowards who will shoot you in the back. *Note, the "shoot you in the back" part is not a part of the resolution, but rather used to provide some more context. The full resolution is "Snipers are cowards."* http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2916171/They-cowards-not-heroes-Michael-Moore-slams-military-assassins-Oscar-tipped-movie-American-Sniper-hits-theaters.html Round 1: Acceptance (and any definitions Pro w...

porn to be made illegal

Debating.girl
JustinBieberFan123

Yes, porn is a huge part of society however Porn should be made illegal as it causes many issues. Firstly; young people are exposed to it as it is just a few clicks away, it can be accessed from mobile devices, tablets, computers, and also even on TV. Young people think that it is normal to watch it as their friends or older siblings have, but it isn't cool at all. It can cause all sorts of long term issues. Porn stars are fake, they have implants and cosmetic surgery to get behind the camera...
