Feminism

Korov007
YaHey

Feminism is a threat to society. Feminism encourages false rape accusations and stereotyping men as bad. I'm not saying that women don't have the same rights as men. I'm saying threatening to call the police for something ridiculous is completely obscure. I didn't know who to debate so I just put a random name lol...

Why the death penalty is ineffective and should be banned by the house

Samuel60
DonRCavalier

In this debate I will be arguing that the death penalty is ineffective and due to its ineffectiveness it should be banned by the house. The reasons that I will use will be that it's expensive, it causes racial disputes, it endangers innocent lives, and finally it doesn't deter crime rates. This is how I will put it down: 1.Introduction of the debate (first round) 2.Opponent's statement that he/she will agree to debate. 3.Arguments from both 4.Rebuttal/or counter argument 5.Conclusion...

Death Penalty

Ore_Ele
Danielle

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...

Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral

RationalTheism
VenomousPen

I wish to thank my opponent for engaging me in this debate. I look forward to a spirited exchange. I will be defending the historic Christian position that homosexual behavior is immoral. Using the same method that Paul employed in Romans 1:26-27, I will argue that homosexuality is wrong because it is unnatural, meaning that it is contrary to the proper functioning of human sexual organs. Additionally, because both myself and my opponent are Christians, I will also make use of Biblical passag...

At this moment universal background checks are not mandatory in the United States, although many polls show 90% of the public think there should be universal background checks. I will be arguing for the implementation of universal background checks...

Suicide should be a crime

Cermank
Romanii

I thank Romanii for the agreeing to debate this resolution. I'm pretty sure this will be an interesting debate, especially because I don't really have any strong opinion on the topic- although I do believe this is one of the fundamental topics- views on which have an impact on individual opinions on a lot of topics involving the interactions of state and rights. First round for acceptance, no new arguments in the last round. Over to Con :-)...
