Death Penalty


Full resolution: The death penalty is an ideal form of punishment for particular criminal cases. My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

A Good Debate on Gay Marriage


Thanks to everyone who expressed interest! Preface:I have seen many, many debates on Gay Marriage here on DDO--most of them are poorly constructed and not well thought-out. As someone who is gay, I also feel a need to set the record straight (pun intended) on many of the homophobic comments present in many of those debates. Therefore, to get this frustration out of my system,I would like to have a formal, polite, and high-quality debate on the permis...

Today's feminism is just an excuse for misandry.


1st round acceptance only and in the final round no new info may be brought up. NOTE: This resolution applies to the USA only. no info from other countries may be brought up!!!! I have also made this debate almost impossible to accept! As pro I am arguing that today's feminism is an excuse for misandry, the belief that women are better than men, and that women are oppressed in today's society (all of this includes that women can't rape and that men can't get raped). Con is arguing agains...

THBT Marital Rape is Feasible


Pro Says Marital Rape is Feasible. Con Says Its Just Conjugal Rights. The issue of marital rape is controversial as it has emerged to destroy and suffocate many spouses. Most claims made cannot be proven but since it is rape (mostly females), it has to be taken seriously. Failing to consider that the other spouse also has conjugal rights....

Should cannabis be legalized?


I do not think cannabis should be legalized in any way except for medical reasons. Cannabis is first of all a drug, allow using cannabis would send out wrong signals which could make people think that it's not wrong testing other drugs to, like heroin and cocaine. Think of it, "the state has legalized" a "drug". Then would some people think that testing other drugs is ok to. The drug do also contain the substance Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This substance can give bioeffects like euphoria,...

A woman's place is in the home


Research shows that the majority of people believe that a woman's place is in the home: looking after the children; attending to domestic duties and ensuring her husband's dinner is on the table when he comes in from work. [1] Sadly, many women these days have chosen to abandon their feminine duties and pursue careers in industry and commerce instead - and it stands to reason that their families have suffered as a result of their neglect. Meanwhile, there is mass unemployment with the resu...
