It's time to bring back the pillory

brian_eggleston

In times gone by, perpetrators of petty crimes, from all walks of life, were pilloried in public [1,2]. This involved the offender being restrained, often in prominently situated wooden stocks, and the public were invited to heap scorn and derision upon them. In addition, members of the public were also invited to pelt the incarcerated criminal with dog faeces and rotten food. I propose this form of punishment should be restored for petty crimes, such as comon assault, but also that the pill...

If gay marriage is fully legalised in the united states, then so should Polygamy

Speakerfrthedead
Delinquent

If Gay marriage is legalised in all states of America, then so should Polygamy.I will only focus on Polygamy in this debate and not trail off into bestiality or the marriage of inanimate objects (which I heard has happened in Japan).Imagine that right now, homosexual marriages were legal and fully allowed in ALL states of America. But that was it, the government decided to change the laws to only that extent. What about people who wish to marry not just one person, b...

I thank wrirchcirw for agreeing to debate this resolution. This debate is mostly a culmination of some things I’ve been reading up on local news, and my reaction to them. For the purpose of the debate, I’ll be arguing that Death penalty is never justified.Some definitions before we get started:Death penalty- also referred to as capital punishment. Execution of an offender sentenced to death...

I have entertained myself by reading some of Bettabreeder's debates on homosexuality. His arguments were in my opinion lurid but his oppponent's weren't exactly strong and detailed. So I decided to challenge him to this debate.Rules:1. For once, Bettabreeder should use proper spelling and grammar.2. All arguments are acceptable, no matter how weak; use what you think is strong.3. Round one for acceptance only.4. List your...

Not ALL pedophiles are sick, whacked out child molesters. Are all straight men rapists?

deadroot414

READ MY ARGUMENT BEFORE YOU CALL ME A TERRIBLE PERSON. I beg you-please allow me to explain myself. You do not know how much I DETEST bastards who actually DO either WANT TO or actually DO RAPE OR MOLEST children. This does not mean I hate pedophiles. Whether we like it or not, we all have our own tastes. We will never be all the same. Are all straight men rapists? Or are all tattooed people thugs? Or are all schizophrenics evil? NO. It's the same with innocent pedophiles....
