Homosexuality is a natural occurrence and is not significantly harmful to society.

By "homosexuality" I am referring to both "being homosexual" and "homosexual acts". I will be arguing that a) homosexuality is natural and b) that homosexuality is not significantly harmful to society. For the sake of specificity, the scope of "society" should not go beyond first world countries.Rules:1. BoP is shared. The winner will be whichever debater presents the most compelling arguments. 2.

They are pressured to be masculine, and gender equality is presented as a upward hill to them where masculinity is better than femininity. - They are pressured to surpass their feminine feelings. While women's natural mate selection centers around a monogamous, stable relationship, they are taught to be promiscuous and to th...

Gay Marriage

I think gay marriage should be allowed, because it's not harming straight people. Banning gays marring each other will not make them straight, so we might as well as allow them to marry. Also, everybody should have the right to marry, so only allowing people who marry to be straight is just unfair. Also for the people who say that 'Becuz teh biball sed so we shouldaint allow dam gays to marry meens tey shouldaint marry', the bible never condemned gay marriage, it only said 'Do not have sexual re...

Cultural appropriation is seen by some as controversial, notably when elements of a minority culture are used by members of the cultural majority; this is seen as wrongfully oppressing the minority culture or stripping it of its group identity.

TheWaywardWriter
HeavenlyPanda

In this debate, I will be arguing that feminism is not only overrated and irrelevant in most situations (particularly societal ones), but also has nothing to do with gender equality. Definitions: Feminism does not seek equality between both genders, but to give back everything women were denied. FIRST ROUND: Acceptance SECOND ROUND: Arguments THIRD ROUND: Rebuttals FOURTH ROUND: Conclusion Good luck to the future opponent....
