is Graffiti Art?

chloebits

Is Graffiti Art? Yes, it is. Grafitti is art and it takes time, patience and artistic skill. It kills time and even though it is against the law and it damages buildings, you can buy a building or highway and do it there and you are doing it to your property. Still not enough reasons. It is cool and gives people something to look at....

Do playing violent video games affect your mental health

DiligentSpace1293
akaRay

Yes, violent video games are something that can affect your mental health. Violent video games show gore, murder of people and animals, usage and abuse of drugs, alcohol, racial slurs, nudity and foul language. These things can cause serious problems, for example when a player is in rage if they died or lost a level they may slam their fist on a table or even more extreme smash their controller to bits and pieces. When playing a game you are so immersed into it you may not pay attention to thing...

Dress Code is Sexist

straightup.gong
Samcoder1

School's dress code in the U.S is utterly ridiculous. The schools would argue that the dress code is meant to bring professionalism, but it is indeed sexist. These rules specifically target girls and women. People are taken out of multiple class periods just because their shorts or skirts were too short, or their shirt was "too low cut", or they have a rip in their jeans above the knee. School dress codes are not teaching kids and teens about professionalism; they're teaching kids to be ashamed...

The fact is, we live in a very dangerous world, and I can pull from a number of different arguments. My religion tells me that pure evil cannot exist, but personally, it has to. Using the elephant in the room, let's discuss genocide. These are perfect examples of pure evil because there was such a lack of humanity on such a large scale. In fact, totalling every genocide in the 20th century, from the Armenians to Rwanda, roughly 19 million people lost their lives. These were innocent people who d...
