Should the government control what we eat at schools?


The government should not control what us as the youth of America and what we eat at schools. Michelle Abeam has taken things such as cookies, Gatorade, fruit snacks and chips from our schools. We shouldn't have the government telling us what we can and can not eat. We should be able to eat what we want and be in charge of how we take care of our bodies. We should be making our own decisions....

Should adolescents be able to watch porn?


Many mothers dont allow their adolescent son/daughter to watch porn which is completely understandable but why is it wrong.If you ask me porn is a great way to lower rape numbers and sex offending crimes.As being a adolescent hormones are high it is quite hard to stop thinking of this simple pleasure especially now where 13 and 12 year olds are getting pregnant.I believe the only way from letting your teen daughter/son from getting pregnant is porn.Teenagers simply aren't physically and mentally...

Treating cancer is better than preventing it, no matter the cost of life. About 200 Billion a year is spent on cance...

Feminism! Hooray!


Well I haven't had a decent debate in a couple months and and figured why not discuss feminism in modern day North America (when I say this I'm referring to Canada & the US of A, sorry Mexifriends). I've been having a lot of "good" back-and-fourths with Stefy about feminism and equality and such in comments and polls and whatever, so if she could accept I'd love it, but if someone else does I'd be just as happy.So as anyone who knows me on this site would al...
