This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

Should fighting violently against mental harassment be considered reasonable in the eyes of law?

Ritik33jain

You know..mental harassment could be just as painful as physical harassment ..so if somebody harasses you mentally(bullies for eg) and there's next to nothing you can do to stop them other than fighting back physically I.e physically harassing them..shouldn't that be considered reasonable in the eyes of law? I mean the judge can decide was it reasonable on person's behalf to be violent against the other person..but shouldn't the law at least give you a chance to explain why you reacted violently...

Animals should be given the same rights and protections as humans

Animals should be given the same rights as humans. They should not be kept as anything other than pets and should be allowed to roam free and their environments should be protected. Animal abuse would be meet with the same punishment as human assault or abuse. Animals can be eaten because we need good source of protein to be healthy but the animals would have to be hunted not kept in cages and be in production farms. Animals have been found to be intelligent, emotional creates that have very lit...

Is revolution important than Human Right?

davidko
Zarium

We are happy to here to debate such a important topic. I believe the "Revolution" is more important than Human right. I want you think about if you are in period of French Revolution. You got starvation, and poverty because of monarch (Louis 16). You don't have any human right. And you want to change government in a flash. And please think "How can I change the government from monarch to democracy?" There is not way to change except the Revolution! There can't be Human right without Revolution....

Homosexuality is psychological and not biological.

JackNapier
pakicetus

There is no firm biological basis to homosexuality, and when scrutinised it becomes clear that it is not rooted in the genetic or neurological but the psychological. I would regard homosexuality as psychological and emotional disorder, with the actions of homosexuals merely a symptom of that disorder. I do not believe there is any evolutionary basis to homosexuality in mankind, since the anus did not evolve to accommodate the penis. When one drinks or smokes they get ill for their organs h...

Should teens have the ability to leave home at there own will? (14-17)

Bigs2016
Arfmeow

I come here to ask one simple question, and that Is, should teens ages 14-17 have the opertunity to leave home? Now when I say "opertunity", I mean they would have the chance to go in front of a authority figure and be given the chance to show he/she is capible of being independent and should be allowed to have the dissition to move out. Now the reason I bring this argument is because a close friend of mine is disowned by his parents and breaks down in tears regularly. What I think should be all...
