Girl's Public School Dress Code

madisony_123
leoghakj

I believe that when you interrupt a girl's school day to force her to change clothes or to send her home because her shorts are short, and her bra straps are visible, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education. You are telling her that making sure the boys have a distraction-free learning environment is more important than her education. You are telling her that boys are more entitled to an education than she is....

Do you think that people rely on Technology too much?

KateHylian
user_name

I believe that people currently rely on technology far too much. They use it now more as a way to get them through daily life. Jobs positions are taken over by the use of technology, people are becoming lazy and using it instead of doing things physically/verbally. As well as this, another thing I would like to add is that children are being introduced to the current technology at too much of a young age, becoming addicted to it and thinking that it's a supposed-to-do way of living....

People that self-harm, or cut themselves, are selfish and attention seeking

Aralie

My argument is that self-harmers should NOT be regarded as selfish or simply attention seeking. A large majority of these people self-harm for specific reasons, such as to relieve mental or emotional stress. Also, the stereotypes that you usually see cut exclusively on their wrists, where most people can easily see. This is not the case for most self-harmers. In fact, most people choose to cut on their upper thighs or stomach, regions of the body that are not usually visible with clothing on. Th...

Travel from Africa to the United States should be banned for a certain time period, for the safety of the American citizens. 7 people in America, in all, have or have had Ebola.

Travel from Africa or certain parts of Africa should be banned....

The first pregnant man was not a man, thus he is not the first pregnant man

I hold the position that the first pregnant "man" was NOT a man at birth, thus he/she should NOT be considered the first pregnant man. Con, or you, hold the position that he is technically a man, thus should be considered the first pregnant man.

Guantanamo Bay should be closed down

Zman_82nd

Guantanamo Bay is a notorious US military detention camp that is the site of many atrocities, and as a result should be closed down immediately. Established in 2002 as part of the War on Terror and the aftermath of 9/11, this detention centre has been used to interrogate people who are suspected to have been involved in terrorism, particularly in the Middle East. However a better word for interrogation might be "torture." When Obama was elected President, one of his core promises was that Gua...

Wandenreich (Bleach-Pro) vs Akatsuki (Naruto-Pro)

TheGodButcher
UtherPenguin

In all out war post war Akatsuki even with the reincarnations, Madara, and tailed beasts would lose to Bleach's hidden army Wandenreich. Both Naruto and Bleach characters are able to use their abilities to their full potential with no limits, chakra and rishi are essentially the same thing. Only manga material can used in this debate. I will begin my argument after someone accepts my challenge....

Is Evolution Scientific?

Nathan.apologetics
2-D

The belief in evolution is a remarkable phenomenon. It is a hypothesis that is defended by the scientific community with a fiery passion, despite macro-evolution's (evolution from one distinct kind of organism into another) contradictions with several key scientific laws. The origins, insufficiency of substantial evidence and the inconsistencies of evolutionary dogma will be outlined in this debate.Evolution is a hypothesis that contradicts physics,biology,the fossil record and common...

Freedom of the Press ought to be valued over National Security

SpiffyTexan
Daltonian

No government ought to be without censors; and where press is free, none ever will. -Thomas Jefferson It is because I agree with Thomas Jefferson that I must negate the resolution resolved: That national security ought to be valued above freedom of the press. Now to define some key terms. Definitions: National Security- The responsibility of the government to protect the lives of its citizens from threats, both foreign and domestic. Freedom of the press-The right, guaranteed by the First...
