Gender is Not a Spectrum

Jacesus
JMurphy

I personally believe that Gender should neither be a spectrum nor a binary. This stance stems from the fact that gender-fluidity and non-binary gender identification has been a "trend" these days. Before I start, I'd like to point out I hold no hate to gender-ambigious people, and any non-cisgendered person deserves as much respect as a cisgendered one. Still, I believe in the wrongness of the concept, and am going to discuss it from that point of view. I'd also...

Political Correctness is threatening free speech.

Iacov
joeymiller1234

In recent popular culture many social media sites are blocking or even banning users who are activist of unpopular opinions primarily supporting right wing views. It has become a social norm to accuse people who do not accept the use of modern labels such as the official 61 genders in New York. A recent example of this being Twitter drama in which Milo Yianopolas is banned from Twitter for "harassment" after posting a extremely critical review of Leslie Jones who recently starred in the new ghos...

Islam - A religion of peace?

TheRealBatman
thedynasty139

Just a quick disclaimer: I do not hate muslims or hold any prejudice against them. This is just a criticism of an ideology that they subscribe to. Over the course of the recent years, we've had many cases of attacks caused in the name of Islam. Nice, France. Orlando. Munich. Bomb threats. Women getting raped in Sweden and Germany in the name of Islam. However, leftism in the media claims that we should not judge the actions of an entire demographic who follow this religion, based on the actio...

Both Christanity and Islam encourage excessive cruelty to animals.

Stupidape
TheRealBatman

More and more I am seeing little use for either of these religions in modern day. Perhaps in a past era these ideas were necessary to survive. Yet, with no evidence of God I am beginning to question a religion who claims a supreme being created these morals, yet is very cruel to animals. I think it is well known about the Christian capitalistic factory farms. The old testament Kosher slaughtering of animals. That Christians can morally use animals for food, clothing, and experim...

ThinkBig
Amedexyius

I would like to thank Amedexyius for agreeing to debate this topic with me. PrefaceSince the recent mass shootings at Sandy Hook, Pulse, and many others, there has been an influx in demands to increase gun control measures. One of these ideas is barring those on the Terrorist Screening Datatabase (also known as the no-fly list, or the terrorist watch list) from purchasing firearms. Whi...

Mental Health is an issue within our education system

emily.baker012
pattywyatt31

In my opinion, the American education system is negatively impacting the mental health of students within the past decade. I make this claim based on 3 primary premises, the amount of homework given, the lack of support/education pertaining to mental illnesses and, the pressures of standardized tests. These main components of the American education system is causing too much stress on the students and without the proper resources and tools to help the students cope, it is causing a rise in menta...

The Earth is spherical and the Flat Earth hypothesis is false

Zaephou
humperdink

It is a widely accepted fact that the Earth, and all planetary objects are spherical (even though they may not be perfect spheres), and yet Flat Earth believers insist that the Earth is a flat cuboid travelling through space with a Sun and moon with a diameter of 32 km above it and provides absolutely no evidence for their ridiculous claims while disregarding the countless amounts of evidence we have for a spherical Earth as government lies. Flat Earth believers simply reject evidence such as...
