The average girl is less into music than the average boy

revic
Abdab

ONLY GIRLS UP TO THE AGE OF 20 CAN ACCEPT! The title of this debate is a feeling I got, but ofcourse it doesn't count as much for adults. Neither can I prove it by any statistics... So, I'll try to prove that you, my opponent, is less into music than the average boy of your age! Pretty bold I think, not knowing who my opponent will be... First off, what will we consider "into music"? How do we measure that? We will measure it by the time spent on music, and the interest in music. Aga...

Do you think women are still treated unequally?

Women are paid about 77 cents to every dollar a man makes. Women are also not commonly found in high power positions, especially in the government. For example, only about 20% of congress is female. This is not because there aren't enough very qualified women for the job. In my opinion as a man, I have found educated women to be much more rational than educated men. Women are objectified and dominated by men. What do you think?...

This House believes that violence in video games directly leads to real-world violence

Greetings and salutations, everybody.Today, I want to instigate a debate on a topic which has apparently gained some momentum, although I was only introduced to it relatively recently. I'm aware that not many people hold to the Pro position, but if there is only one person who does on DDO, then we have the potential for an excellent and...

Today's feminism is just an excuse for misandry.

SGM_iz_SekC
Dakota-Hiltzman

1st round acceptance only and in the final round no new info may be brought up. NOTE: This resolution applies to the USA only. no info from other countries may be brought up!!!! I have also made this debate almost impossible to accept! As pro I am arguing that today's feminism is an excuse for misandry, the belief that women are better than men, and that women are oppressed in today's society (all of this includes that women can't rape and that men can't get raped). Con is arguing agains...

Skeptics Should Argue with Theists

SweeneyTodd
nayme

Should the skeptical society continue to debate with theists and creationists on the existence of God and the issues within theology? Right now I am Pro but am open to be either side, so if anyone wants to be Pro, I can gladly switch to Con. Religious people don't often listen to what skeptics have to say. Should the atheist community continue to educate these people, or are we just wasting time? Is it pointless? Should we be concerned about other, more important issues rather than who believes...
