Envisage

Because they will already be in the nude. And it will be already normal....

DebaterGood

there is a new ride sharing app for women that dont feel comfortable with male drivers, i think its ok, but if we switch it with race then it doesnt sound ok, from a business point of view it is valid to discriminate based on job qualifications, so if the app is for women & if they dont feel comfortable with male drivers then its a valid justification to not hire man, but if white people would feel uncomfortable with black drivers based on the claim that most offenders of inter-racial crimes bet...

The topic of debate is as follows: I would like to start off by submitting a scenario. Suppose you are travelling down a track in a runaway trolley Cart, you are travelling at 60mph and the brakes are broken. At the end of the track in the distance you notice 5 workers going about t...
