THBT the government should protect the minority group"s culture

hanwoo
Zarroette

I believe that the minority's group should be protected from the government because if the government protects the minorities, the government can receive taxes from the minorities. For example, China's more than 5000 minority groups, if China supports them the China government can exact taxes....

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

RoyLatham
jopo

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...

Should girls be able to hit a guy and expect not to get hit back? (please speak in general context)

kizzet
lillawyer

Simply stated, I will start off with the argument that although guys are generally physically stronger than women (There are few exceptions of course), many girls believe it is okay to hit a guy. I don't think guys should ever hit a girl without a good reason, but if a girl unintelligibly hits a guy who is stronger than her, like if a man picks a fight with a bear, you should expect consequences. It's ridiculous for girls to take advantage of the socially accepted fact that "guys shouldn't hit g...

Do use of "profanities" hinder one's credibility/argument?

Mister_Man
Mr.Grace

This came to my mind after finding it is against the terms of service to use profane language on this site. - Does this really matter? I do not imply insults. Insults and profanity or swear words are completely different things. The Wikipedia definition [1] is what I will use. If you do not like that definition, please provide your own. My argument is that the use of profane language should not only not offend someone if it is not used in the form of an insult, but it should not take a...

Mandatory Drug Tests for Welfare Recipients?

IwinYoulose333
AIyssa

I started this debate as more of a discussion instead of an argument. I am personally for the use of random drug test for welfare recipients, because I don't believe most taxpayers want to directly fun drug money for other people. I am interested to hear the other side, however, both in my opponents arguments, and in the comments. By the way don't tell me I should have gone to the forums for a discussion; those places are evil....

This is my first debate, so please go easy on me. I know it's overdone, but this is a test of my debating skills. I wasn't sure about the amount of rounds, so I just put 5. First round is for acceptance....

Australia doesn't exist.

Xziandonlitona
smellyunforunate

There's no proof that Australia exists. For all I know it's made up. It's just fake information being shown on the news with a bunch of rehearsed stuff about australian animals that may not even exist. Is this some sort of twisted hoax?...

Abortion should be illegal

OtakuJordan
whiteflame

Thank you in advance for accepting, Con.As Pro, I shall be arguing that abortion should be illegal with no exceptions. Abortion shall be defined in this debate as "a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus."[1]The first round will be for acceptance. Trolling and insults will result in a full seven-point loss.Sources1. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion
