Are girls more than a distraction at school?

alyssbu
Credence

Girls should be allowed to wear whatever they want to school, as long as its not showing their, yano. We are telling society that " boys will be boys " and they will check girls out. Why should girls be punished for wearing what they like to wear? Boys are the ones that should be reprimanded for being boys! As long as girls aren't wearing bikinis, why not? If the shorts are above their fingertips, and those shorts are some of the only shorts their families can afford, how is it fair for them to...

We cant imagine "aliens" as long as there is no clue.

akhlakm

The first round is only to accept the debate. This debate can also go a bit of topic, if needed. I would like to say that its unpredictable how aliens look like and why aliens wouldn't do "invasions, attack, parasitizing..." My opponent should explain why he/she believes that we are related to them, that they are invading us or any other "ET" topic in this way....

gay marriage should be legal

I believe gay marriage should be legal everywhere. Most arguments against gay marriage are ridiculous. Yes, the Bible is against it, but what if your atheist and the bible has no part of your life? The dumbest one I've heard is that if gay marriage is legal more people will become gay and society will collapse. 10% of the world is gay and it's stayed that way for a LONG time. Gay marriage is actually a good example for your kids. It takes a lot of courage for two girls or boys to be proud they a...

0.9999 (repeating) = 1

TheTom
Jzyehoshua

Normally debates are about opinions. This is about fact. I maintain that 0.9999 (going on forever) is the same thing mathematically, and realistically as 1. I expect my opponent to have an understanding of math, such as basic algebra, and rules of infinity. First round is for acceptance AND posting arguments. For the sake of simplicity, the term 0.999... will mean 0.999 repeating. FAIR WARNING: This is a mathematical fact. The evidence is on my side. If you choose to accept this argument, you...

Should boys and girls be put into separate schools?

Luxray2854
FakeAmericansUr

More or less what I would like to argue is a recent issue concerning all boys/all girl schools. Some people say that these would help in increasing our children's knowledge, where others say it'll do more harm than good. Put into words however, the benefits outweigh the problems. When only teaching one gender, teachers get to tailor their teaching styles to the behavior of their students more efficiently than any public school can. One thing it does too is shut down many of the stereotypes of...

DEFINITIONS:Mental: Of or relating to consciousness (a "Mental reality" being one that is contained solely in consciousnessReality: That which is real - that which exists. In this debate, PRO will argue that there must be a non-mental reality, with "mental reality" used as defined above.

Should kids have more rights at school

Monkeysent
FreedomBeforeEquality

I think kids should have more right at school because basically the adults at the school have full control and the kids never get to have a lot of say. If kids got a say then maybe kids will be a little happier about going to school. If kids had a rights at school they would be able to do stuff like change lunch period time. Increase lunch time etc....
