Should Transgender MtF be allowed to participate in Miss, Teen, and Mrs Pageants?

genevieve00009
straightup.gong

Pageants are specifically designed for WOMEN! not MtF women. In my opinion, if a MtF woman wants to participate in a pageant, someone that is supporting this should try and create an organization where the pageants are for MtF contestants, instead of disturbing the contestants that the pageant was made for....

Rape Is A Good Thing

BryanMullinsNOCHRISTMAS

Rape is a good thing if you just let it happen. If a man wants to have sex with you forcefully and protectively; if you just let it happen, you will be alright (sometimes, its tough love) those are 2 wills for each other if you fight the rape, that is against the man's will if you don't fight it, you'll feel sexually delighted if a parent told you "you should be ashamed of yourself" the parent is against your will ignore people who say "you should be ashamed of yourself" those people a...

Decriminalization of All Drug Usage

One of the most heated and consequential endeavours of our time is the War on Drugs, which I am in full opposition against. In this debate, I will argue in favour of the decriminalization of all drug usage, even though I still would institute certain punishments for the actual production and distribution of some particular drugs, like krokodil for example, but the private usage must not be punished. my opponent will...

Should Animals Be Used for Cosmetic and Cleaning Product Testing in the USA?

Many arguments have arisen with the growth of the animal rights movement such as the difficulty of enforcing an abolition of animal testing. There are many animal rights acts that have been put into place and enforced that were controversial at the time they were created. An example would be the Humane Slaughter Act that prohibits the use of painful slaughtering methods on farm animals. The only requirements I could find for research facilities was the regulations for any indoor facility used to...

Are Diverse Ranges Of Students Helpful In School?

Joey888
TheBenC

Hello. Today I will be talking about whether student diversity in the classroom is important or not. I believe it to be so, mostly because I have the idea that we will eventually work with people of different races some time in our lives, sooner or later. Having diverse classrooms will help students because during school hours, they will have to work together, and they may even play together during their recess. Preparing students for the future is the motto of many schools, so prepare them by i...

Should people be allowed to have complete freedom of speech?

EljayShaun
EverlastingMoment

I'd like to debate about freedom of speech/ expression, mostly media censorship, but also in other areas of life. My stand is everyone should be given complete freedom of speech. Anyone should be able to express their views without restrictions, and at the same time, no one should be held legally responsible for any views or opinions they express. Just a quick example, if someone posts on a social media website, "All Muslims are terrorists and deserve to be killed!", my stand is that this person...

Fire does more harm than good ?

I heard on the news was how bad the air was from the forest fires; now this is not something that happened overnight. What a lot of people don"t realize is this has been building up for years. You see, it takes soil, water and carbon dioxide to grow trees. Now more than one million acres of the forest has been burnt, this in turn destroys the trees leaving no shade to help keep the snow from melting in the spring, which means we are headed for a drought. By destroying the trees there is not...
