Straight marriage should be legal.

TheodoretheMan
Apple7

Definition of straight marriage in this sense: the legal unity between a man and a woman. Excuse spelling please as I just broke my dominant arm, and am typing rather slowly. On to the debate. (Religion is not included in the debate) I believe straight marriage should be legal because (1) it is natural for a man and woman to be together. From the beginning of civilization they have been wanting to be mutually connected or, in today's terms, married. 2. Deducting from genitalia and genitalia func...

Are girls more than a distraction at school?

Girls should be allowed to wear whatever they want to school, as long as its not showing their, yano. We are telling society that " boys will be boys " and they will check girls out. Why should girls be punished for wearing what they like to wear? Boys are the ones that should be reprimanded for being boys! As long as girls aren't wearing bikinis, why not? If the shorts are above their fingertips, and those shorts are some of the only shorts their families can afford, how is it fair for them to...

We should institute "Artificial" Selection for the betterment of the human race.

To begin, I would like to elaborate on the topic. I believe that the bottom percentile of the population should be removed from the gene pool for the betterment of the human race. If this occurs, many beneficial results will be achieved. First of all, this will obviously control the population. This will benefit the environment and reduce the general strain that humans are putting on the earth. Removing the bottom percentiles will cause the "better" part of the...

Racism reflects the truth

Credence
JayConar

I do not agree that racism is morally right, but it is founded upon the truth. I will use African Americans as an example. One may believe that a person having black skin is also lazy, aggressive, poor or stupid. In fact a person having black skin may in fact be lazy, aggressive, poor, or stupid. It is also true that a person having white skin may in fact be lazy, aggressive, poor, or stupid. The point I'm trying to make is that it is not the color of the skin that causes one to be la...

Is Rasicm a real problem?

justin_cyfairdebate
Beginner

Racism today isn't a real problem, sure every now and then an african american gets shot by a white cop andthere are riots in the streets. But now minorities have the same abilities as whites. In fact many colleges accept more minorities then whites. Now today people dont care about diviserty. The only reason there are "hate crimes" is due to illicit behavior. How many times do you hear about minorities killing someone or doing drugs and getting caught. The thing is its not only one race anymore...

Should New Zealand Change It's Flag?

Kylar
Ulysses.Hood

Greetings everyone it's Kylar. I would like to bring up a very interesting topic to debate someone about. As some of you may know, New Zealand's Prime Minister has announced that there will be a referendum in late 2015 on whether the flag should be changed. I love studying vexiology-the study of flags and so this is pretty significant as far as flags are concerned. I am adopting the pro viewpoint for this debate, and I'll tell you why. 1. The New Zealand flag is very similar to Australia's and...

Should buffer zones for pro-life protesters exist around abortion clinics?

Stefy
Squirrelnuts57

The main argument against the existence of buffer zones is that they violate rights to freedom of speech and assembly for pro-life protesters, however, free speech and assembly rights do not extend to harassment. By being able to go directly up to a woman going to the clinic to argue with her and try to stop her violates her legal right to go to the clinic. One of the reasons that pro-life use in their argument is that the suicide rate for women after they have had abortions is extremely high....

If you are prolife (Abortion) then wouldn't you be against the dealth penalty? Pro(Agr) Con(Disag)

Devonne
JayConar

If one claims to be pro-life in terms with Abortion then wouldn't you be pro life for everything (i.e. death penalty)? When asked a question about Abortion, which I am against, I considered that I was pro life, but when I thought in depth of what it means to be pro life I thought: Would I be against the death penalty also, since it's the act or killing a human for a crime they've committed (not word-by-word definition)?...
