Same sex marige


ok before we start a dabate this is my first one so it will suck Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and wellbeing of the spouses. The promoters of same-sex "marriage" propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and...

to be pupil better rather than student


Today all people know that after schools pupils should enrol on a course of university, there is a doubt that some of the children want to stay in schools. So there is a question what is better to be pupil or student? From my point of view, to be pupil better rather than student. You know that when we became student we have a lot of problems, but these problems we should solve by ourselves. And we have a big responsibility on everything. And it makes our life difficult. In contrast to be pupil m...

Casual sex is irresponsible because it has great potential to cause suffering


These arguments are presented in ascending order of the instigator's belief in their philosophical importance. There is ALWAYS a risk that having sex will create life, which you will then have to either raise or terminate. To create a human life without being ready to provide for its happiness is irresponsible because it causes human suffering to that created child, and may even create suffering to the zygote if it is terminated (please note with respect the "may". We don't know whether or no...

14+ year olds should be automatically tried as adults


Brain researchers B. J. Casey and Kristina Caudle stated that when no emotional cues (when we are required to make decisions in the heat of the moment) are present, teens are better than adults at controlling themselves. [1] While lots of crimes involve emotional cues, it's no different for teens because adults are held responsible for their actions.It"s true that the prefrontal cortex is still developing in teens, but it is not defective.

Marijuana should be legalized


In many states, they have begun to drop the noose that restricts medical marijuana use. In my state of CA you will find more dispensaries then star bucks.. however I think everyone should have this choice, and that it shouldn't be only ok for the terminally ill. I want to argue that this should be the federal standard(legal), and that marijuana has been taboo for so long, based on ignorance and denial. I am (pro) so will be defending and asserting this motion.<...

Someone Should Create a Separate Nation For People of "Alternate Sexualities"


I will be arguing in this debate that the US (or some other nation) should create a nation that will serve as a safe haven for LGBTQPZN (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Questioning, Pedophile, Zoophile, and Necrophile) people from all over the world. It'd be a nation set aside specifically for these people. Straight or asexual people would be second-class citizens in this nation, in the same way that LGBTQPZN people are in many parts of the world. I will also discuss which part(s) of the wo...
