Should Sex be a Forbidden Topic?

Sex is the primal drive of any sexually reproductive species. It is a natural phenomenon that occurs all around us. However, this topic is something that tends to be conversation families stay away from. In our modern society, protective parents are everywhere. But is it justified to avoid giving a child "The Talk" simply because it involves the action of sex? While there are some dark and vulgar sides of the practice of sex, the basics are just facts of life. If children are taught by th...

Judgement In America

In America many people are judged. Whether its their, ethincity, clothes, or "name". Some examples would be, on a recent subject Mike Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri being an african-american many other caucasians and african-american's thought it was because of his race. On another standpoint of judgement for the clothes idea. A man walks into a grocery store he's wearing some khakis a polo shirt and some nice shoes the store manager see's him and thinks the...

It is better to be a man than to be a woman in the United States.

PM1066

Despite decades of feminist advances to try to bring equality to the sexes, it is still far better to be a man than to be a woman. Even if absolute equality was achieved in all measures, being a man is superior. First round is acceptance. 2nd round is for the presentation of primary arguments. The only sources or references that may be used are the direct experience of the person in the gender. The 3rd round is for rebuttal of the second-round arguments, and final position. Only the rebutt...

This debate should be impossible to accept. I don't want troll or someone not looking for a real debate accepting this. Comment or message me if you are interested. This is debating open homosexual relationships or people being featured on shows directed to an audience 8+. You don't have to be homophobic to accept this debate. I can see both sides. I have done this debate before but a troll accepted and reasonable debaters were afraid of being called homophobes. There will be 4 rounds of this d...

Cigarettes have been shown to be as powerful if not more powerful than some illicit drugs in causing detriment to peoples health. Why then do we not ban these substances? Although a contentious issue, alcohol has been shown to have some benefits in moderation. In contrast, there has been...

Welcome to the final round of the March Tournament Bracket, hosted by Wylted! Congrats to my esteemed opponent, Lee001, on making it to this round! I look forward to a stirring debate on a controvertial topic. Just a note to voters: the ELO minimum has been set to 2500. I think this resolution is relatively straightforward, but I'll be as clear as possible. This is a policy-based resolution, and as such, it is my burden to present a case. The burden of proof is on me, as I am seeking to ch...
