Anti-bullying should be promoted more at schools

2ninjacat

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among all aged human beings. Bullying is repetitive bad behavior resulting with depression, lower marks, loss of friends or even suicide. People bully because they feel the need or loss of power, so to regain that feeling, they need to sabotage somebody else that is weaker than them. No one likes bullies, and I mean no one. Forms of bullying is teasing, name-calling, inappropriate sexual comments, threatening to cause harm, taunting, being physica...

Is prevention of cancer really the best cure?

Everstart
2ninjacat

1. Cancer is an acceptable price to pay for the prosperity and knowledge produced and obtained by the jobs it creates in the fields of research and treatment. 2. Cancer is an acceptable price to pay for the morality of waiting past puberty to reproduce which leaves the window open for the epigenetic damage to accumulate from environmental pollution sources, causing cancer. 3. Treating cancer is better than preventing it, no matter the cost of life. About 200 Billion a year is spent on cance...

Should adolescents be able to watch porn?

Many mothers dont allow their adolescent son/daughter to watch porn which is completely understandable but why is it wrong.If you ask me porn is a great way to lower rape numbers and sex offending crimes.As being a adolescent hormones are high it is quite hard to stop thinking of this simple pleasure especially now where 13 and 12 year olds are getting pregnant.I believe the only way from letting your teen daughter/son from getting pregnant is porn.Teenagers simply aren't physically and mentally...

Being a pedophile is not morally wrong

Canuckleball

I feel that being a pedophile is not inherently wrong. I would argue that it is a serious mental disorder that should be treated and hopefully cured, and would encourage someone who deals with these urges to seek professional help without fear of being shunned by society. Let me be very clear: ABUSING A CHILD IN ANY WAY IS WRONG. No one in their right mind would argue that taking any action that harms, threatens, intimidates, or discomforts a child, especially by a person in a position of po...

Animals should have the right to life and liberty

RoyalFlush100
UNpeacekeeper

First round is acceptance only. Animals will be defined as any species that is part of the Kingdom of Animalia, except homo sapiens. Liberty will be defined as the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life, behavior, or political views. This debate assumes humans have these rights, but may lose them if they violate another person's. Pro cannot introduce any new arguments in the final round, as Con has no chance to rebut t...

Women should not feel offended when called 'babe' or 'baby'.

Iamright58

Women should not feel offended when called 'babe' or 'baby', since it is not necessarily an insult. It is rather a compliment, to express admiration for the women, which in more often cases would be beautiful. It can boost her self-esteem. Also, many waitresses call men clients 'honey', since they have the right to do it, men should also have the right to call women 'babe'....
