White Americans usually do not need to compete with Asian Americans because of Affirmative Action.

NoRiceForU

Affirmative action should exist but white people shouldn't get an advantage over Asians through it. There's no reason white people should have an advantage over Asians both socioeconomically speaking and diversity speaking....

Life was far better before agriculture, and still better than it is now, on the whole, for humanity

Agriculture allowed for most of the evils we know today. Although life for a small minority of people has some good technology, on the whole, more people are suffering now than before agriculture....

Sexualising women in the mainstream media damages their psychological state.

Tommy.leadbetter
StephLou92

The continual sexualisation of women, and even men, in the media is damaging to women. It encourages women to harken to the sexual side of their nature above all else, and then makes them feel inferior about their sexual appeal through the portrayal of unrealistically attractive women using photo effects. Because they see sexual appeal as their most important trait, and they fail at it, they are depressed. This makes them obsessively buy beauty products and stay distracted from the true issue, w...

Men and Women Are Equal

SirCrona
Mister_Man

My opponent made statements on this topic that I feel deserve a full debate. First round is for acceptance. I will be taking the pro position in this topic, and as such will argue that men and women are equal. My opponent, should he accept, must take the con position and argue that men and women are not equal. A few rules for this debate: -No arguments from sexism or other forms of bigotry. For example: "This argument my opponent has made is biased because he is a bigot." would not be OK. H...

Gay Marriage Should Be Legal

TruthHurtsBro
wolf24

Overall I do not believe that this should even be a debate. Evidence has surfaced that homosexuality is generally not even a choice, it can be genetic and/or born with it. It is completely their decision and it does not affect the rest of society. It is not others business and it should stay that way. We have deemed homosexuality as taboo or just disgusting, mostly because of damaging religions, and any men and women alike are afraid to come out and be themselves. This should not be an enviro...

Abortion is wrong, but it should be soften in the case of a rape victim.

CleverGirl
KeithChan

Let me begin this argument by stating that life begins at conception. Murder is the act of taking another human"s life and abortion is nothing less than that. Abortion has become a commonly accepted idea that it is okay to take another person"s life. In my opinion, abortion can and will never be justified, except in the case of a rape victim. Think about this: by law, no other form of harm done by one person towards another person ever go unpunished. Why should the act of killing an innocent c...

should marijuana be legalized for recreational use

aiwaslex
thaiheisaguythatlikespies

I'm for marijuana to be legalized for recreational use, because marijuana can be as dangerous as "food" that we put into our body's. Most people are scared of marijuana and parents, grandparents and other adults tell us that marijuana can kill us. First if alcohol and cigarettes are legal then why marijuana can't be legal too. Alcohol affects on people are scary and unhealthy. People with alcohol addiction are unstoppable they can't control their actions and because of this many...
