Does the Gender Age Gap Exist?

mgracehaze

I believe the gender wage gap exists. I don't think the gap is huge, but from the research I've done, women are on average paid 20% less than men. I have looked into fresh out of college statistics, race, and age. I can't find any definitive proof that it is a myth other than Ben Shapiro's argument that it doesn't exist. I am curious to hear both sides of the arguments, if you could provide statistics and/or sources for your opinion, I would appreciate it. I am just trying to fully understand...

Should Fighting be Allowed in Hockey

Chase_M

Fighting in hockey has always existed as a defining feature of the sport, and it has been accommodated in the rules for the NHL since the league's establishment in 1917. The practice of fighting in NHL games should be protected because it is not simply an exercise of unchecked aggression, but rather a tool to be used to hold players accountable for their actions. With 12 players on the rink at once and only 3 officials to regulate them, players often get away illegal/dangerous checks. In the abs...

Abortion, after the first trimester, is murder

CluelessDatabase
Ayokos

It is my position that abortion, after the first trimester, is murder. My argument isn't a legal argument, but rather a moral argument. So arguing that it isn't legally considered murder is not a valid argument. Rules:1. First round is for acceptance, as well as providing additional definitions if so desired. Clarifications may be provided in R1 as well, or in t...

What should we name this planet?

The way voting should work is you should pick pro if the name you picked is only one word and con if the name you picked is more than one word. The name that gets picked the most will survive on to round 2. Here's a link to the planet:http://orig11.deviantart.net/9456/f/2011/058/d/2/earthlike_planet_2_by_bbbeto-d3akqvq.jpg...

That we should restrict free speech to combat the rise of right wing populism

rowey2000
Neuroguy23

Right-wing populist parties, individuals, and activists worldwide are a threat to minorities and to democracies. Side government solves this problem. I think courts should decide if these are right-wing populists using five criteria: 1. Nativism (ie. the scapegoating of immigrants and ethnic minorities) 2. Hostility towards elites (especially institutions like the media and the courts) 3. An accessible or authoritarian approach to law and order 4. A disregard for political correctness and...
