Sexting

Ohgolly
AlternativeDavid

So I am a 16 year old girl and I say that sexting should not be illegal for someone under the age of 18. Sexting which is when nude or semi-nude photos are sent over the phone through messaging having a sexualized meaning. I believe that people should be able to have to send or possess pictures that were willingly taken or willingly sent. If it's a problem that someone threatens to leak the photos they should of thought harder about sending them to that person. People need to realize they can't...

Welcome to the final round of the March Tournament Bracket, hosted by Wylted! Congrats to my esteemed opponent, Lee001, on making it to this round! I look forward to a stirring debate on a controvertial topic. Just a note to voters: the ELO minimum has been set to 2500. I think this resolution is relatively straightforward, but I'll be as clear as possible. This is a policy-based resolution, and as such, it is my burden to present a case. The burden of proof is on me, as I am seeking to ch...

Noob debate, more for practice but I'd appreciate a challenge with feedback. Cats eat the local wildlife which was there first, also they just don't care about you, sorry, but they're just evil. Ever heard of guide cat? (this is just a practice debate, I'm not truly a cat hater though I think there are too many and they do have a bad effect on nature)...

The USSR was the most valuable Ally in WWII

Hello, I'm Billy. If you're a British or French person, you may have heard this from an American: "We saved your butt in WWII." As an American, it may sound irony, but I disagree. Many Americans don't realize how powerful the Soviet military was. Before I get into that, I'll list the Allies and the Axis states. Allies (combatants): Soviet Union, United States, United Kingdom, China, Poland, France, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Norway, Denmark, Yugoslavia, Greece, Luxembourg, Netherla...

Lane splitting and Filtering should be legalized.

When riding a motorcycle of standard size you tend to find that the other vehicles on the road lose sight of you. Cell phones, GPS, passengers, and even watches distract drivers into accidents every single day. The most common collision associated with these distractions is a rear ended impact (most commonly at a traffic stopping point). Collisions in closed or caged motor vehicles are never good, yet the more severe collision type is found when an enclosed vehicle hits an open vehicle. In these...

The legal drinking age in the United States should be lowered to 18

zmandebater
DrewMcD

There are many countries that have instated legal age limit for drinking laws deeming the legal age for all, or some types of alcohol to be 18. At 18 people normally have less responsibilities, so drinking will not effect their day to day living any more than some one who is 21. At a younger age people will also start to slow down their drinking habits. Brain development is relatively done by 18 as well. It will also bring in more spending for businesses, and possibly causing people to get jobs...

Varrack

I think Gay marriage should be allowed. it is their choice not ours. also if it makes hem happy then let them be! We tell each other not to judge and yet we judge gays, really it is not acceptable. we should love them for who they are. Even if you hate them cause God created them differently, let God deal with them....
