Pop Singers These Days are Pushing the Limits of Sexual Meaning

Bonbonwinners

These days, the Hollywood celebrities seem to be pushing the limits a bit too far with the sexual meaning. Many of their songs have to do with sex or things that are not a great influence on girls and boys. In my opinion, they should not have so many songs that have bad influence on people (sex, drugs, girls, clubs, money), and especially teenagers. It's creating a new kind of social world, making teens feel insecure, and too self concious....

David12N

Good luck to my opponent! I will be arguing that the US should pass national "Stand Your Ground" laws. One of the most pressing issues in today's society is the issue of gun control.

However, the only way to keep people safe without infringing on their Second Amendment rights is to pass "Stand Your Ground" laws. Such laws allow people to use deadly force against any threat without retreat...
