Should gay marriage be legalized?

justaloser

As a lesbian atheist, I strongly believe that gay marriage should be legalized, but I'm up for a friendly debate. Keep in mind, though, if you say "f*g" one time, I'm not going to listen to a single thing you say....

The use of torture is justified in ticking time bomb situations.

For the purposes of this debate "torture" is defined as those methods of interrogation revealed as being used by the CIA on GITMO detainees. These methods include physical and psychological stress, the most severe being water boarding. The methods are non-lethal. An ABC News article describes the methods, at least in general: [1. http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/Investigation/story?id=1322866.] The article says tha...

I would like to thank my opponent for this debate. Not going to post my argument right now, as I am on an iPod and to do so would be a pain. Looking forward to the debate. :)...

Should Animals be kept in a zoo.

I think that animals need open space to run free in the wild. Not cramped in a glass box. Why would we take animals from their natural habitat to be put up for display. Good luck to the Pro side....

Trolling and insults will result in a full seven-point loss.Sources1. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion

Does the media report fairly? Does it ever cross the line between reporting and creating news?

dbkpop
footballchris561

I have noticed recently that there are a lot of news stories that are told in different ways on different channels. This makes me think that some of the news channels are either reporting with an opinion or creating news so they have news to report. Even when there are similar accounts, the numbers in a lot of stories are skewed one way or another, in such a way that they can not be true. This means that they are creating some of the news to make it seem like it is a bigger story than it really...

Prostitution should be illegal.

Nymphomaniac
Mister_Man

This debate is about prostitution. I believe prostitution should be legal, but I've chosen to argue a side I don't believe in, to keep things interesting. This should be fun! There are three rounds. The first is for acceptance. The second is for arguments. The third is for rebuttals. I have made the voting open to members with a minimum Elo of 2500. I also ask voters explain their decision. That should keep randoms from voting and ensure a fair assessment....
