Homosexuality - a lifestyle AND a "non-choice"?

phatso86
Ragnar_Rahl

i'm not sure if this counts as a debate but here goes: can the homosexuality be a lifestyle while at the same time not be a choice? is this not self-contradicting? I only question this because homosexuals never seem to defend this "stance" correctly, and by "correct" i mean having a basis on reality. Perhaps it is my line of reasoning that is flawed, but here how i logically see it: lifestyle - a self proclaimed choice, hence perversion non-choice = either mental(psychological) or physic...

Death Penalty

Ore_Ele

Full resolution: The death penalty is an ideal form of punishment for particular criminal cases. My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

There should be no law against smoking while walking down the street or in ones vehicle/home, or in some/most places. Unless marked as a non smoking place people should be allowed to smoke there.

Infanticide should be legal in the United States.

Freeman
sherlockmethod

The United States should allow the use of infanticide in the case of infants with severe medical complications. This policy should be adopted because euthanizing infants in some scenarios can be a valid moral option since certain infants can be born with absolutely terrible life prospects. For example, there are a number of instances where infants can have terminal ailments that cause them to suffer immensely after birth before killing them shortly thereafter. In these situations, infanticide sh...

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

Hey you! Yes you - reading this. You are a racist! Oh, yes you are, and if you don't like being called a racist, sue me and I'll take you for every penny you've got (provided I win this debate which will form part of my legal argument, so please vote for me folks otherwise I'll be bankrupted). You see, it doesn't matter from which ethnic group you originate or how politically correct you like to think you are, the fact is, each and every one of us is a racist. To illustrate my point, pleas...
