High School Curriculum Should Be Changed

heatherash
Oliark

I will not argue that it is important for individuals to be knowledgeable in subjects such as math, science, history, etc. However, I do not believe that school teaches you what you REALLY need to know to survive in the world. Yes there are classes that one can CHOOSE to take to learn things such as accounting, however it is not mandatory. (Furthermore, do you really believe that a teenager is going to WILLINGLY take a financing class, or a politics class?) There are classes that I find to be...

Spanking is child abuse.

Spanking is child abuse because it is wrong to touch people without consent. No one has the right to make another person feel unsafe. If you would not hit an adult, you should not hit a child. Everyone has the right to feel safe in their body. No one the right to another person's body....

The antigay position is a religious issue that should not dictate the law. No one has the right to force religion on other people. There is nothing wrong with being gay. If two consenting adults are in love, they have the right to get married....

Minimal Moral Justifican for Torture

Donya813
Jvelez9

There are outstanding discrepancies of moral justice/injustice that appear to be betwixt and between of resolution that are subsequent to the act of torture. The foundation of torture has spiraled ethical controversies, concerning the righteous boundaries of such procedures and whether they should be acceptably retained. In agreement with those who are in favor of tortuous acts up to the degree that it does not conflict with total morale, we can concur that torture is performed centrally as a me...

The use of phrase "I treat you like a lady" is hypocritical in the modern western society

hurma
Garbanza

A friend of mine recently told me "I treated you like a lady", while referring to a welcome I received at her house one evening. I claim, that the use of the phrase"I treated you like a lady" is hypocritical in the context of a modern western society. The term lady is outdated and refers to women of high social class largely before the beginning of the 20th century. Thus, modern westerners (of any gender) do not have a practical day-to-day understanding of what it means to be a lady, as they...

Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized In America

gerkraine
Philocat

Gay marriage should be legalized in America. There is no logical reasons as to why it should not be, but regardless, I am going to debate the most common reasons against it. The main reason people are against gay marriage is religious reasons, mainly Christianity. Religious people will say that marriage is reserved for a man and a woman, and that homosexual relations is an "abomination". However, that should have no place in a legal decision. If you recall, this land is created on the bases of...

Should pornography be considered illegal?

Zepha
awr700

The porn indusrty gives massive amounts of tax revenue in many states acroos the U.S. In California alone the porn industry generates over 36 million in taxes. This is very beneficial for states to have this extra source of income. Porn also helps keep the general populace content. The only possible downsides are that it can make people feel bad about themselves and that it promotes the physical side of sex more than the emotional....
