Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

Freeman
Contradiction

I want to begin by saying how delighted I am to be debating Contradiction on this very important social issue. It's good to be able to argue with someone who is so philosophically inclined. For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...

Abortion Is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Freeman
JoshBrahm

Allow me to begin by saying how pleased I am to be debating Josh Brahm. I'm sure that many of you will never get to read a more powerful case for the pro-life position than the case you will read in the course of this debate. And I only hope that I can do as well while I proceed to defend the pro-choice position. In this debate I'm going to argue that abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Unlike a person, a f...

Should public nudity outside nudist venues and beaches be legalized?

Dario_Western
Ajabi

Nudity might offend some people, but it does not kill, maim or injure anybody. Protagonists of nudism claim that liberalising public nudity will cause a drop in the demand for pornography, eating disorders and body image problems (particularly with women and young people), and a sharp decrease in sexual offences and unwanted pregnancies. Nudists who are Christians argue that public nudity should be liberalized because Jesus Christ did not condemn it in the Bible. Overseas nudists from Europe t...

Celebrating birthday is a burden of craps we own. Isn't it so annoying to wish everyone on their bdays, and being hurt if someone forgets to wish us back on our own bdays ??. I dont cerebrate bdays, its a waste of time, money and resources that add no quality in lives of others. It only boost our ego and greed up... I mean being ME for any reason seems ridiculous.. I would rather spend this day volunteering the foster home or with the people who are less fortunate.. Your thoughts ?? Agree or...

recently i found out no one has ever died on marijuana, and in the 1930's we were told its the most cancerous causing substance .but we use it to fight cancer today. i also learned it can help secrete chemicals in the brain. then were also told it kills brain cells and lowers iq. but if it did we would die from it, and everyone i know that does smoke seems very insightful creative also good with puzzles. and in the 40's or 50's propaganda in shows makes us have a murderous crave and causes viole...

JustAnotherThinker
RevL8ion

Cyberbullying is defined by Dictionary.com as the act of harassing someone online by sending or posting mean messages, usually anonymously. As for a criminal offense it is defined as an act punishable by law; usually considered a...
