US "bathroom laws", on balance, are justified and beneficial to society.

Cobalt

This debate concerns "bathroom laws" recently passed in the United States that involve allowing transgender people to use the bathrooms matching their gender identity. If it is not clear, I am taking the "Pro" side and will be arguing that these laws are justified and beneficial to society. Rules: 1. The scope of this debate should be limited to the contiguous United States along with Hawaii and Alaska. 2. Kritiks and purely semantic arguments are not allowed or tolerated. This is in pla...

Is Curry the best NBA player that about to take over Lebrons reign?

Adley104

I think Curry is the best player that is about to take over Lebron reign as best player in the world because Curry went back-to-back with the MVP awards curry powered the attack with his 402 three-pointers, shattering his own single-season league record of 286 set last season -- an increase of 116. Along with leading the NBA in three-pointers made for the fourth season in a row, Curry extended his streak of regular-season games with a three-pointer to an active league record of 152 straight game...

Let's say that if the earth was flat how would gravity function? In all fairness a planet can be somewhat flat, Google the dwarf planet Haumea it is kind of an egg shape. If a planet is spinning very very fast it w...

World War One was Morally Ambiguous

H501

I believe that the Germans are unfairly portrayed as "evil" in World War One. While this was certainly true in World War Two, WW1 had no "good and bad" sides. Please note that the argument is on the topic of WW1, aka the Great War. I don't want people saying "Oh, but the Germans killed Jews!"...
