Shafer117
Debater_Girl

Just because a brony (a man who watches MLP) doesn't mean that he is gay.

My argument in this debate is that a brony can be gay, but should not immediately be called gay until either he confesses or is proven....

fo-shizzle0855

US citizens should be the priority of the US government and president, they should have the sole right and power...

Whether animals deserve moral treatment.

Prox
AlextheYounga

Con Position: Animals neither have nor deserve rights, or any sort of moral treatment. Specifically, I will be arguing that morality only makes sense with respect to human agents and agents that can/may mimick human intelligence. Animals should only be treated as things or property. My opponent argues that animals should be treated with moral respect. We each will have to posit and defend an ethical philosophy as a framework to consider this issue, along with the issue, itself. Af...
