Eating Meat is not Inherently Unhealthy or Immoral

Bennett91
Ajabi

This debate is specifically to debate against the strict dietary values of veganism. I ask that a person who identifies as vegan take the Con position. Round 1 is for acceptance, definitions, and also a brief paragraph on position and beliefs (not hard evidence, just explain where you will be coming from). I agree that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is unhealthy with it being a high fat, high sugar and low exercise diet. However I believe the health problems associated with meat are not...

Women have it easier overall in the U.S.

mrPrime
Swedishperspective

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....

Marine Mammals under human care

PotBelliedGeek
agennarelli

In this debate, I will argue in favor of keeping marine mammals under human care. To clarify, I will support the AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) in their captivity methods and purposes. This does not include SeaWorld, as they are not part of the AZA and I do not have a direct association with them, thus I cannot speak for them. My opponent will argue against the AZA, and will argue in favor of marine mammal release. BOP is shared....

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

9spaceking

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....

Sex is not an hardship of life.Some people are satisfied by sex but all need to lead a life other than sex.There are people in life w...
