1 gapping should be federal law or at least a social norm.

I hate people that don't one gap, and think it's absurd not to. No I won't define 1 gapping, and yes we'll be using my definition. It will be a fair definition and if you don't know what one gapping is you're probably one of those jerks that don't do it anyway, so I want to debate you....

Women have it easier overall in the U.S.

Aside from the debatable (and marginal) "income inequality", i stand by the claim that women in North America have a greater chance to succeed/prosper and live comfortably. Standard debate format for response: Greeting and/or Opening Rebuttal Rebuttal Closing General conceptions are fine but please cite any statistical data. You are welcome to bring up income inequality but please state explain how this hinders one from having a full and satisfactory lifestyle....

m93samman should rejoin debate.org as an active member

Greetings to all users of debate.org. In an extended hiatus, I was overcame to login to DDO for a reason that I can't quite place my tongue on. Upon logging in, I have found that the website has changed considerably. The active users I once new are for the most part gone, and a new set of users has taken their place. The website format is largely changed, and I find navigating it far more difficult than I care to admit. As I currently see it, I find no compelling reason to resume activity...

Rap Battle

This is a rap battle, self-explanatory. Censored cursing is allowed, but some things are over the line, such as very aggressively sexual or racist lyrics, etc. I'll let voters decide what crosses this line. There's a 48 hour debating period and a 2,000 character limit. My opponent must pass on a round, either first or last, depending on preference. Thanks in advance to whoever accepts....

"There is Only One Race, The Human Race" Is an Incorrect Statement

Hetaera
RyuuKyuzo

There is only one living RACE: Homo Sapien Sapien AND NO, I am not just repeating myself for giggles. The specific type of human YOU are today falls within that category, ALL OTHER RACES of humans are EXTINCT. Any reference to hair colour, eye colour, SKIN colour, is merely a reference to PHENOTYPE (http://dictionary.reference.com...) which is in reference to observable traits not to be confused entirely with GENOTYPE; however there is in fact a relationship between the two. To understand...
