I've avoided this topic for too long, mostly because of my religious background and only I have only recently known a different path, atheism. Burden of proof will be upon Con, my opponent 51%. This is due to the nature of morals, actions are considered moral until proven otherwise. Just as a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

I am not part of the LGBT community but that doesn't mean i can't support the members. Why don't gays, lesbians, transgenders get the same rights as everyone else?...

Are all lives important?

JimMystic
evanjfarrar

I don't think so. I think we've had 'all life is precious' showed down our throats for so long that we think we can reproduce without any consequence. We can't. Our resources are not unlimited. Of course we need to reproduce but as I am writing this there are more people brought into this world than people dying which does not result in a happy ending. Not every life is important....

Are feminists sexists?

David_Debates

Since time immemorial, many things have changed. Time has brought an immense change to how the country used to function and many more. People blame feminists for being sexists because they have a stereotypical approach towards the definition of feminism. But they are oblivious of how modern feminists are striving to bring about a change in people"s mindset about feminism. What feminism really means- "the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes". You"re not a feminist w...

Black Lives Matter Movement has a Legitimate Purpose

All lives matter, more specifically, the lives of every human entity has purpose and equal rights under our nation's laws and beliefs. Correct? If all lives matter, then can someone please justify the unnecessary beatings from Caucasian cops being forcefully given to a large handful of colored individuals of a range of ages and gender. These beatings portrayed themselves in a pattern that many identified and became upset with. What happened to all lives matter? It wasn't there, it was being negl...

BOP lies with pro. First round for acceptance only. No new arguments in last round.Hey Capitalistslave!I'm so sorry but I set the debating character limit to 2000, incorrectly believing it would mean the limit was 2000 words without looking properly (I know its pretty dumb). Hence I'm restarting the debate with a 10 000 character limit.I hope that's ok with you!Also to clarify: Higher Education: education beyond secondary level/educ...

"Holocaust Deniers" Are simply, petty minded antagonists, who enjoy winding people up.

Sonofcharl
Ozzz169

We all know beyond any doubt, that the Nazi Germany lead "Holocaust" of the 1940's actually occurred. I would suggest that anyone who chooses to deny this fact, is being insincere and deliberately antagonistic. I would also suggest that there is no intelligent reasoning, to their supposed view point. Just a petty minded enjoyment, in annoying and upsetting others. Especially, people who are sill affected by or who have strong emotions, relating to events that occurred in Europe between 1939 an...

Should the term LGBT continue to be used?

differentveiw
firefury14620

The term LGBT should not be used in reference to the community because it is not inclusive towards the entire community which it claims to contain. This marginalizes these groups and to some level invalidates them. Furthermore, when people do try and include more identities, the term becomes a mockable mess of letters much too long for many people to remember and use. Instead, we should use the term GSRM (Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minorities) which is inclusive towards everyone, including but...
