Hitting a girl is okay in self defense

Wylted
Garbanza

Minimum debates needed to accept is 5 to help prevent forfeits.There are idiots on this site who think it's okay for a guy to hit a girl in self defense. I'm under the impression that it's okay for a girl to hit a guy in self defense but not visa versa. BOP should be shared for this type of debate. Pro is arguing that it's okay for a man to hit a woman in self defense. I will be arguing that it's not okay for a man to hit a woman in self defense.The exception to this woul...

The United States was primarily responsible for instigating the Cold War

UchihaMadara
TN05

1. First round for acceptance 2. No new arguments in the final round 3. The debate should be impossible to accept. Finding a way to accept without permission will result in an automatic loss for Con. If you would like to accept, please say so in the comments section, and I will challenge you in a week or so. 4. By accepting the debate, Con agrees to define the Cold War as "the period of political tension between the United States and the Soviet Union lasting from the end of World War...

The minimum wage should not be raised to $15/hr for fast food workers

RoyLatham
TheHitchslap

Unions recently staged protests demanding that McDonald's in the U.S. should be required to pay workers a minimum of $15 per hour. An ABC News report provides some background on the issue [1. http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/fast-food-workers-demand-pay/story?id=20235304]. While McDonald's was the focus of the demonstrations, a law cannot target just one fast food company. If that were legal, other chains might get most of the business, McDonald's w...

Are femenists just blowing air through their lips? Are feminists just women who hate men?

Chrystahist
toughenough

No. Just no. When people point out injustices or things they see as unfair, I believe it is completely unfair to just point out and say that they are trying to be victims. I know from personal experience that sexism still exists today in America, and I don't hate men. I proclaim myself as a young feminist, but I don't hate the male gender. And the behavior of some men towards women is appalling....

Marijuana legalization

Gogert777
KhalifV

No acceptance, lets just go. Legalizing would make America's drug problem spiral out of control. Marijuana should not be legalized because there is already a weed drug problem in the US. Who is to say that said person would not pick up a bat and beat someone to death due to their impaired mental state? Marijuana impairs judgement on all levels. Marijuana is known to kill brain cells, smoking weed is a disturbing trend. Young people need to keep their minds sharp. There are far too ma...
