mostlogical

I will argue why rape should be legal while my opponent will argue why it should remain illegal. Male debate only. I wish to have a serious debate. Rape: the offence of forcing a person, esp a woman, to submit to sexual intercourse against that person's will Please note: I am not questioning other laws e.g. the age of consent. If you think legalization will affect any statistic then you are free to make that argument I hope to have a friendly debate. Let it begin...

Abortion should be made illegal

Jcmiamiu7
WillYouMarryMe

Okay, this debate has some rules. First of all, first round is acceptance to the debate and rules and stating your stance in one sentence, but no arguing until second round. Rules are that, because this debate is formal, no insulting will be allowed, and to only exchange information. My stance on abortion is that it should be made totally illegal unless it poses a threat to the mother's life....

This vote was considered by me because when I thought for a while that when students have study hall they have to go to another teacher's classroom. Then i thought " Shouldn't children have the same environment that is as planned out as regular classrooms as they have for there regular learning day?" So I am voting yes for this vote and I am exited to see what the rest of you think!...

Aren't we Americans getting a little tired of hearing," That's not who we are...." Aren't we Americans getting a little tired of hearing," That's not who we are...." every time someone wants to kick America around, I for one American have had my fill of these Hate- America bashers, holier-than- thou, getting before an audience and pounding their chests and pontificating in righteous indignation about evil America.

Should Capital Punishment/Death Penalty be legal?

EAT_IT_SUKA
AlternativeDavid

This argument will be about whether or not the death penalty [1] should be legal, and my thesis will be: 'the death penalty should be legal.' My opponent's thesis will be: 'the death penalty should not be legal.' The burden of proof will be an equal amount between me and my opponent. Any information gained from internet research needs a link (and if you use an expert's [2] opinion, you need the expert's name as well as the link you found the information from), and any research from books needs t...

Political correctness attempting to limit free speech, and turn people into weenies

LoganHarclerode

The idea, of political correctness as it appears to me, is a blunt and obvious attempt to infringe upon the freedom of speech, as well as trying to limit expression. (Definition of political correctness I will be using http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/politically%20correct) Now obviously, for the sake of public safety not all words are safe to say, for instance screaming fire in a movie theater, But that is the only type of limitation to the freedom of speech I deem to be acceptable. Bu...
