Do you think that watching violence on TV and in films encourages youths to be aggressive and antis

Quina

I believe that television does offer a window to violence, especially when they watch violent games. I have two grandkids ages 8-9, who used to watch some children's shows. I noticed that after they finish watching the show they run to their room and grab their toy guns, and start shooting at each other. In other occasions, they start hitting each other and fighting just like the show they just watched. I do firmly believe that some children's shows do more harm than good. I do not allow my gran...

Dog Fighting Should Be Legal

Danielle
ThinkBig

I would like to thank my opponent for agreeing to debate this with me. Dog fighting is a type of blood sport generally defined as opposing two game dogs against one another in a ring or a pit, for the entertainment of the spectators or the gratification of the dogfighters.Please note that just because I think dog fighting should be legal, doesn't mean I think it is good.The first round will be for my contender's acceptance. I look fo...

This debate is a part of the DDOlympics Debate Tournament described here: http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/91542/ We are part of Group D, and as such, this is the first of two debates that both ShabShoral and I will be participating in during the group stage of this tournament. That being said, I'm excited to debate ShabShoral on this intriguing topic, and I"m looking forward to having this debate with him. I don't think there"s much need for ground rules here, but I will at...

Gay marriage should be illegal

tejretics
Cooldudebro

Pro should begin arguing in Round 1 and post only "no round as agreed" in the final round; we each have 3 total rounds to argue. [Arguing that same-sex couples can have equal rights without use of the word "marriage" is not allowed, since that's entirely semantic, and the resolution concerns the institution of gay marriage itself, not what we call it.]...

There are times both in which abortion should and should not be allowed

InsaneSanity
Geogeer

I should clarify my position because the title isn't long enough to accurately describe it. I am arguing that there are certain times when abortion is wrong and should not be done, and there are times that it is acceptable. Con will try to prove that it is either always acceptable or always wrong. Rules: - Obviously, there will be no attacks on people and no anger. We are debating, not having an online shouting match (as happened between some idiots in my third period today but in person)...

Homeless people are homeless by choice

Malik1228
apple9530

The "homeless person" is either making calculated and immoral choices to be homeless, or they are perceived to be powerless agents who lack the capacity to exercise choices. I live in NYC and the amount of homeless people I see is disgusting, are people just that lazy to get a job....

People should be allowed to wear what they want.

Andrea75
AmericanDeist

during the last year we have assisted an increase of anxiety over muslim dressing. this anxiety is probably justified by the surge in muslim refugees. some countries like France ruled that the face covering should be banned. in my opinion the battle over the veil is making it harder to muslim to assimilate. i support the idea that people should be allowed to wear what they want....

Should we legalize abortion

TheDebater14
TheMonsterKing456

I think they should,because abortion can cause mental disruption. Abortion is also killing innocent lives. Based on the word "fetus","embryo" and "zygote" are living organisms. Thus abortion is harming a living thing. Furthermore, abortion is a choice made by the mother. If you force the mother to abort the birth, it is against the law. But the mother should just deliver the baby and raise him/her just like any normal human being....
