Is age an important factor in relationships?


No I don't think age matters in a relationship So long as the people involved are of age, which I believe is anywhere from about 16 and up, their ages should not matter or determine whether they have a serious relationship or not. Some people more than 10 years apart, even 20 have had successful relationships and marriages, so it really doesn't matter like people may think. So long as the love, care, trust and commitment exists, the age doesn't mean a thing. So...

Specifications on the exact meaning of "conquer" and "Africa" will be elaborated on in the next round (don't worry, I'm not going to pull any semantic tricks.) Debaters are permitted to make a seperate debate to place their citations in, to save characters.A...

Should people be vegetarian?


I think that people should be vegetarian for multiple reasons. There"s the moral reason; animals in the meat industry are treated horribly and you save about 100 animals every year you"re vegetarian. There"s the environmental reason; the best thing an individual can do to help the environment is become vegetarian. The amount of water and transportation(gasses), machines who need to be made is incredible....

Feminism is a form of sexism


Nowadays, the feminist movement is bigger than ever. They have achieved some great things against gender discrimination. However, feminism has sexist roots in it. I think that feminism ends up being bad for society, because it doesn't defend gender equality, but a prevalence of females before males. Also, it makes the gender problem very dualistic (men vs women) when It isn't (there are transgenders, gender fluids, etc.).Then, feminism shouldn't be celebrated, but fo...

Open and Concealed Carry should be allowed in every state permit free.


In this debate we will begin by talking about open carry. Open carry is the practice of carrying a weapon in plain view, not concealed, for personal safety. I am for this. I feel that if you can pass the background check to buy a firearm legally, you should be able to carry a weapon as the Second Amendment gives us the rights to bear arms to protect ourselves from an oppressive government and those who seek to do us harm. Here is Ky policy on open carry. This statement statement is about what is...
