On Balance, the new DDO site policy reform is generally good.

I've noticed my opponent complaining vehemently over the new enforcement of site policy by the moderators. The policy can be found here:http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/40226/My opponent (since the posting of the reformed policy) has been very outspoken in his opposition of the policy. Well, I would like to challenge his position. I believe that the new site policy will be generally good.

Should a man hit a woman back?

The common theme is that it isn't "manly" or "masculine" to hit a female back. I would argue that this is invalid and as a human you should expect consequences after every physical action no matter your gender. I would argue that it is a feminist ideology to advocate tolerance when hit by a woman, and would propose to you that it is natural to defend yourself even if your opponent happens to be weaker than you. To justify homosexuality, some refer to the animal kingdom. I'm going to refer to...

The Bible does NOT say that gay marriage should be illegal and I would argue that it does not even call homosexuality a sin. What evidence do you have to support your position that it does?...

Why Perseus is the best mythological Greek hero of all time.

laurenjames
AthenaMusic10

Perseus is the number one best mythological hero of all time for many reasons. Not only is he the son of Zeus (the king god of the universe) and killed a crazy mermaid called medusa (the one with snakes for hair), he also showed much compassion by helping out someone that he did not even know. He, Perseus, is much better than Jason because although he was trusted to receive gifts from the gods, he was given them in ready-to-use condition, unlike how Perseus had to figure out the best possible us...

It's time to bring back the pillory

brian_eggleston

In times gone by, perpetrators of petty crimes, from all walks of life, were pilloried in public [1,2]. This involved the offender being restrained, often in prominently situated wooden stocks, and the public were invited to heap scorn and derision upon them. In addition, members of the public were also invited to pelt the incarcerated criminal with dog faeces and rotten food. I propose this form of punishment should be restored for petty crimes, such as comon assault, but also that the pill...

Competition is good for success.

Success is about working hard to do your best. Competition helps people to learn about their abilities and to create a plan for improvement. These skills are very valuable in the world as well. People can't choose their career paths well without knowing their strengths and weaknesses. The same is true in the world beyond schools. When a company hires an employee, it wants to see that this new employee has the ambition and the drive to succeed. A company also wants new employees who can identify...
