Spanking your child is considered abuse

ctfurn24
GenesisCreation

I have no idea as to why parents think its okay to hit children. Even if a child is acting out violence is never the answer. Not only is hitting a child hurting them physically, but it's also emotionally and socially hurting them. Some children grow up to be an extremely violent person. A child that gets abused at home is most likely to end up being socially unstable and may even suffer from severe depression. There are so many cases in the world where a child had been killed by their abusive pa...

Legalization of Marijuana

AnOddBeauty
BangBang-Coconut

Marijuana, otherwise known as Cannabis sativa, is a simple plant that grows from the Earth. This leads to the other names of this government hated plant... Grass, weed. Marijuana is not a drug by any means. It comes from the green element. And if you should so happen to set it on fire [another element] there are some effects. You can't put two natural substances together and say it's a drug. That's no drug, that's nature....

Zionist-Jewish Networks Should Be Considered as Some of the Most Probable Perpetrators of 9/11

MassDebater69
Badtothebone

Investigations into the collapse of the World Trade Center, the beneficiaries of 9/11, and other issues surrounding this event have demonstrated, clearly, the overwhelming flaws contained within the "official narrative". A much more plausible theory is that Zionist and Zionist-Jewish networks, who were directly involved in the companies and institutions surrounding nearly every major aspect of 9/11, were probably involved in the attacks in order to bring US troops into war against Israel's enemi...

Round 1 is for acceptance. New arguments can be introduced in rounds 2 and 3. Round 4 is reserved for rebuttals, extension of arguments and a final wrapping up. Round 5 is for reply. Sources do not have to be cited for this debate. I would like to thank my opponent in advance and look forward to a engaging, civilized debate....

Ban Trade With China

Matthew3.14
MasturDbtor

This is a debate of whether or not trade with China should be banned. The parameters are to be set for trading with the US and trading is limited in definition to being only for tangible elements or items not including intellectual items. This was a class debate. I won, but my friend (who was my opponent) wants me to debate on DDO to be his "rematch." First round is acceptance....

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

aliasam1337
FieryPassion

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

Altering our body to be fit for society...

kuroshitsuji
Travniki

Throughout our lives, society has told us how we should look to be deemed beautiful. We try to reach an impossible goal, and waste effort in trying to achieve that goal. We look at these "picture perfect" people and envy their flawless beauty. However, in reality, they are just as imperfect as the people society criticizes. We are so insecure that we go as far as to alter ourselves entirely to achieve that desired flawless appearance. Billions of dollars are spent annually on cosmetic and hair...
