Is sexual orientation a choice?

Addy44
God_is_awesome

Sexual orientation is not a choice. You cannot control it. It is intrinsically in you, and you fall in love with whoever you fall in love with. I'd like to start off by giving you the definition of "sexual orientation." The dictionary definition is, "one's natural preference in sexual partners; predilection for homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality." (This definition can be found here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sexual-orientation?s=t) This definition is not exactly ho...

The Movie is Better than the Book

TheGodson
Midnight1131

I'd like to make a statement that movies in general are better than the book. "Better" is a loose interpretation on purpose to encourage a wide scope of things to use to prove each side's point. When I use the term "general" I mean usually. That means if you don't know the story and someone asks you "Do you want to watch the movie or read the book of ______ story?" that picking movie will be the better option. Rules: 1) Trolling equates to a definite loss. 2) First to Forfeit a round res...

Beyonce's halftime show

Beyonce's decision to dress up in support of the Black Panthers was uncalled for. Why is it when I white person does something it is completely racist, but when a black person does the same thing they are standing up for what they believe? What if white people went and paraded around in White cloaks? Neither of these two groups should be supported they are both racist and completely offensive! The Black Panthers support Black Power right? What happens when a white person goes around shouting Whi...

Should schools conduct random drug testing?

123haha
jglass841

Hello, I believe that drug testing in schools should not be allowed to occur. In a national study by the University of Chicago, 76,000 students were surveyed and there was no correlation between the drug use of students that went to schools that conducted drug testing and those that did not. Based on this study and many many more, drug testing is simply not an efficient deterrent. Next, drug testing is inaccurate. Based on several statistics, (that I will name if necessary), drug tests can bri...

Less Gun Control

tombob930

I am here to debate why we need less gun control, and why it does not work. If you accept then you have to debate why we need more gun control and why it works. First off, gun control does not stop the criminals from getting a guns. It's the same reason why drugs are outlawed yet it"s so easy to get drugs. We have had the war on drugs, we made them illegal yet America is having a huge drug problem. You can even get drugs in prison. The thing about increasing gun control is it makes it harder for...
