If Gender is subjective, then it has no practical usage

NKaloms
Overhead

A contentious issue today is gender identification. Many individuals no longer believe that gender is binary and is instead on a spectrum. If this is so, and gender is subjective to this or that person, then I propose that gender no longer has any practical usage and we should get rid of "gender" altogether and instead use only our biological sex to identify our human species, male and female. My opponent's goal in this debate is to prove that if gender is subjective, it still has practical...

I know that the philippines is not as bad compared to other countries when it comes to crime rate, but it's bad enough that our president promised to wipe out or at last reduce the c...

Information Transferred over Older Mediums Is Always More Legitimate

The older the medium over which information is transferred, the more legitimate the information is. For example, information received face-to-face from another person is always more legitimate than information received through texting on a smartphone. My thesis for this debate is similar to a quoted claim I made on Twitter on December 28, 2016 (https://twitter.com/paulemok/status/814322169119383552), "'The older the medium that information is transferred, the more legitimate the information o...

privacy vs security

diustroyer
Shad0wXx

I think security is more important than privacy because If you cant say or type something that would get the cops suspicious about you then don't type at all in that cause and if people have less privacy cops can find more online terrorists so in that cause security is more important than privacy....
