Encore

I will be arguing that one-sided chivalry is sexist and unjustified (so I will be Pro). Chivalry: "an honorable and polite way of behaving especially toward women" http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/chivalry Round 1 is for acceptance and position. 2/3/4 - debate; round 5 is for conclusions. Thank you!...

mrPrime
Swedishperspective

Aside from the debatable (and marginal) "income inequality", i stand by the claim that women in North America have a greater chance to succeed/prosper and live comfortably. Standard debate format for response: Greeting and/or Opening Rebuttal Rebuttal Closing General conceptions are fine but please cite any statistical data.

Hi debaters. This is my first time about to debate. I'm a future Lawyer, so I wanted to test my debating strength. I'm a university freshman by the way, starting the 25th of this month.

Background: Anyways, I was on the public bus today on my way home from a long day at my university working out issues, and sadly, a woman was beating her child on the bus. He was a little boy, probab...

I hate people that don't one gap, and think it's absurd not to. No I won't define 1 gapping, and yes we'll be using my definition. It will be a fair definition and if you don't know what one gapping is you're probably one of those jerks that don't do it anyway, so I want to debate you....

Is it racist to only date your race or only a particular race?

foreduca
distraff

Firstly, I'd like for this debate to be mature. I'd prefer to have just an exchange in views, nothing hateful; nothing racist. Secondly, the debate should be in some sense academic; that is, have at least some understanding of race, racism, it's history and how it functions in society as well as an understanding of people from a variety of backgrounds. Format of the debate: Round 1: Acceptance and any other pleasant exchange. Round 2: Presentation of Arguments. Round 3: Rebuttals Roun...
