If you want additional rounds, please comment or send me a message. Please do not forfeit. I want to debate this not because I actually believe what I am writing, but because I am a Christian and I am struggling and I am not sure if I am a true Christian or not.

Girls should be allowed to wear whatever they want to school, as long as its not showing their, yano. We are telling society that " boys will be boys " and they will check girls out. Why should girls be punished for wearing what they like to wear? Boys are the ones that should be reprimanded for being boys! As long as girls aren't wearing bikinis, why not? If the shorts are above their fingertips, and those shorts are some of the only shorts their families can afford, how is it fair for them to...

Should boys and girls be put into separate schools?

Luxray2854

More or less what I would like to argue is a recent issue concerning all boys/all girl schools. Some people say that these would help in increasing our children's knowledge, where others say it'll do more harm than good. Put into words however, the benefits outweigh the problems. When only teaching one gender, teachers get to tailor their teaching styles to the behavior of their students more efficiently than any public school can. One thing it does too is shut down many of the stereotypes of...

We should institute "Artificial" Selection for the betterment of the human race.

jcv999
Credence

To begin, I would like to elaborate on the topic. I believe that the bottom percentile of the population should be removed from the gene pool for the betterment of the human race. If this occurs, many beneficial results will be achieved. First of all, this will obviously control the population. This will benefit the environment and reduce the general strain that humans are putting on the earth. Removing the bottom percentiles will cause the "better" part of the...
