Capital Punishment

Complicated-Character
debater409

I would like to begin by saying the obvious, that not every crime is worthy of the death penalty, and that not all killers deserve it either. But if someone is perfectly aware of the atrocities they are committing, can it even be questioned that they deserve to die? In my opinion: no. But logically, this should be treated as case by case. For an example of a case where capital punishment shouldn"t be considered as a form of punishment, I bring up a book I read in middle school, titled Monster....

Gay Parenting

My last attempt to debate this was taken on by a non-serious debater, so I'd like to try this again. Many arguments against the legality of gay marriage include the sanctity of the family. According to social conservatives, gay people are deranged, perverted or otherwise unfit to provide a safe, functional and/or loving family environment in which kids can be raised successfully. At the very least, they argue that a proper home is strictly defined by having both a mot...

The Parole Board has failed in Protecting the Community

The parole board has a duty of protecting the community not endangering it, so why are giving parole to murders and sex offenders who will get parole --> re offend --> kill/murder or rape someone and then back in jail when they should not receive parole in the first place...

Gay Adoption and Parenting

Many arguments against the legality of gay marriage include the sanctity of the family. According to social conservatives, gay people are deranged, perverted or otherwise unfit to provide a safe, functional and/or loving family environment in which kids can be raised successfully. At the very least, they argue that a proper home is strictly defined by having both a mother and a father. As such, despite the fact that lesbians can still get pregnant and gay couples can adopt, many people are...

Gay Marriage

Gay marriage without a shadow of a doubt should be completely legalized. It is unfair and unjust to say two people who care about each other can't do whatever they want with their relationship within the confines of the law. If something that has no negative effect on an innocent party, especially any effect at all, then it should be legal; gay marriage should be legal because what two consenting adults agree to spend their time doing, especially if it's none of your business, shouldn't be pun...

"Check your privilege" is an absurd saying if you say it just because of someone's race or gender.

I understand that white people and men have always had privileges while African Americans, Native Americans, women ect were discriminated against. I understand that American Indians and African Americans have higher poverty rates as a directs result of the racism that existed in America and which still exists today to a certain extent. Many Native Americans for example are poor and suffer from substance abuse as a result of the trauma they faced in boarding schools they were forced to attend. Th...

Crimes Should Have Victims

Just to make everything clear with this subject, I'll list a few definitions:Victim: a person harmed, injured, or killed as a result of a crime, accident, or other event or action. Crime: an action that constitutes an offense that may be prosecuted by the state and is punishable by law.I personally believe that in order for anything to be "illegal", it should have a victim. For example, murder obviously has a...
