It is stupid to compare politicla correctness to the rules of a religion

RoyLatham

My opponent claims it is stupid to compare the rules of political correctness to the rules of religion. He quoted my claim in his list of the top ten most stupid things said on DDO. [1. http://www.debate.org/forums/miscellaneous/topic/35982/1/] This debate provides him with an opportunity to argue for his proposition that the comparison is "stupid." Pro gave no unusual context for his claim, so the primary definition of "stupid" applies: not intelligent : havin...

My opponent is to post his argument in Round 1. I ask my opponent not to make any kind of argument or rebuttal in Round 4, considering that I'm making no type of argument in Round 1. Burden of Proof is shared by Pro and Con. I ask voters to vote fairly when this debate enters the voting stage. I wish good luck to my opponent, and may the debate begin....

Should schools be allowed to take non-educational Trips?

edibleshrapnel

I was very lucky to have 3 field trips my eighth grade year, but I still think I could've had more. I'm in High School now and I am in a band, and we had a difficult time having the band being able to go to SeaWorld. I've never been to Disneyland in my life. But I've been to Disneyworld. The District isn't even paying for the transportation, we've been forced to do that on our own. But that's besides the point. One of my trips I took in eight grade was going to see Iron Man 3. And tha...

Is abortion ok in some situations? Or is it totally wrong?

Cin
RoyalSon

I believe abortion is alright in certain situations. Say, if a woman got raped, then she is allowed to have an abortion. Or if the baby is going to be born with a fatal disease, or you know it only has such a period of time to live, why would you cause it pain? It's better to save his/her misery than to have to put them through that....

Gay rights should be legal because we live in a progressive society and saying that people who love their same sex shouldn't get married because that's not traditional, is extremely ignorant!...

Male domination is necessary for a society to have net gender equality.

FrancesHill
sgr159

I am a woman and I oppose gender equality on the grounds male domination is required for a society to have net gender equality. The equal influence of men and women on society is desired. Men and women have an intrinsic forms of influence on society due to biological factors. Social constructs, such as relative degree of social equality, represent extrinsic forms of influence on society....
