'Women wearing make-up is false advertisement'

amyjones29

I've recently seen too many annoying and almost sickening comments on social media, mainly coming from men (also the odd woman), claiming that women wearing make-up is 'false advertisement'; i.e they're presenting themselves to men 'falsely' because they have make-up on. First off, women are not there to be 'adverts' for men to 'fancy', if a man is interested in woman surely they aren't just looking at their external beauty, there is more to a person than their appearance. As a woman myself, i...

abortion

nathan_k98

Abortion involves a mother taking the life of an unborn, defenseless child. Many argue that rape pregnancies pose a situation in which abortion can and/ or should be considered. What I don't understand is why the person least involved in the matter at all (the baby) is being punished most severely. That makes no sense. Another common argument is that the unborn fetus is not yet living at the time of abortion. Abortions can be done up to 24 weeks into the pregnancy. A baby's heart starts beating...

why we should not have zoos

mmmmmmmmmm
Zack28180

I believe that we should ban zoos because they do a lot of harm. First of all it is a lot of money to care for all the animals. The zoo has to pay for its new habitat, the food and water and they need medical care sometimes as well. It is hard to pay for that so then the animals wont be getting what they need because the zoo cant afford it. Second of all the animals Cant learn to hunt, the food is just set in front of them. If animals are born into the zoo they have know experience with the outd...

Is sexual orientation a choice?

Addy44
God_is_awesome

Sexual orientation is not a choice. You cannot control it. It is intrinsically in you, and you fall in love with whoever you fall in love with. I'd like to start off by giving you the definition of "sexual orientation." The dictionary definition is, "one's natural preference in sexual partners; predilection for homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality." (This definition can be found here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sexual-orientation?s=t) This definition is not exactly ho...

Clothing Style/Amount Should Be Up to The Individual and Not Enforced by Law

ForGrowthOfMind
Samcoder1

To begin I would firstly like to say I am not a nudist nor would I be if clothing was optional in society, so my opinion does not come from a bias towards my own agenda. However, I believe it is oppressive to force clothing laws on citizens. We began as a species that wore clothing only to protect ourselves from the environment and it slowly developed into a means of being stylish. That being said the amount of clothing a person wears is not a matter of morals, only a matter of taste. It is not...

fgandler
Emmarie

Hard work or talent? People have been debating on this almost everywhere. These words are creators of many things, such as buildings, art, culture, etc, they all came to be because of hard work. Research shows that hard work is more successful than talent. Hard work is essential in one's life and is more important than talent because it guarantees success and talent can"t exist without it. Hard work is really important; it guarantees success and therefore is essential in life. As shown in the v...
