Steve is a highschool student who has a bestfriend named sherry. Steve feels as if his whole life is nothing but a big mistake.

He is such good friends with sherry that he feels that sherry should get it over with for h...

Capitolism

Harlan
Phil

Capitolism creates a tense society where everyone is working for self-promotion. All of our (American) society is based on someone trying to outdo someone else; someone trying to sell something to you; Someone trying to use you for a profit. They see you as a way to make money. Next time your outside in a city, take a look around. Theres billboards trying to use you to make a profit. Theres prople walking around with T-shirts that encourage you to give your money to certain large corporations. W...

It is too hard for women to escape domestic violence.

Cinammon1

Throughout multiple experiences discussing the issue of domestic violence, I have come to the conclusion that it is just too hard for women to escape. The ignorance that I have encountered so far is that everyone believes that women will magically become empowered by motivational sayings and speeches and just eventually leave but the fact remains that this is untrue. There are multiple thing that hold women in abusive relationships such as children, religious beliefs, and the biggest one of a...

1 gapping should be federal law or at least a social norm.

I hate people that don't one gap, and think it's absurd not to. No I won't define 1 gapping, and yes we'll be using my definition. It will be a fair definition and if you don't know what one gapping is you're probably one of those jerks that don't do it anyway, so I want to debate you....

Child pornography should be legal to posses.

DucoNihilum
rwebberc

Hi, and thanks for accepting this debate challenge. Might I make it perfectly clear to anybody reading this that I am not in support of child pornography, nor the production of child pornography. I strongly believe that abuse like the production of CP should come with punishment. My debate is on the topic of the possession of child pornography. While the possessors of Child Pornography may be sick, wrong, and perverted they are realistically doing nothing to harm anybody. They are not...

Abortion is wrong.

Alex
Tatarize

I am here, not only to state my opinion that abortion is wrong, but to also see the other side of the situation. God creates us all, with a unique personality and mind, and with a role to play in this world. Taking that chance from an individual is wrong. Abortion is murder, if you do not want your baby, or are scared, there are plenty of alternatives to killing it. One of the best, there are couples out there that cannot have a baby of their own and then there are people who are killing...

this house believes that breaking a promise is aleays immoral

francis
Danielle

i say in my side that breaking a promise is always immoral because in the first place when you make a promise you are committing something and if that happens absolutely there is a responsibility and if there is a responsibility specially those which are committed by a person he should fulfill it no matter what. second , I strongly believe that if you make a promise it requires action but action does not require a promise so why make such a promise if you can make an action without it. Yes it is...

Young people do not have good arguments.

Tatarize
Solarman1969

Solarman, you've made repeated arguments that youths are inherently unable to make good arguments and that more-over they do not have enough life experience to competently defend a position. 1) Regardless your age, you are unable to make a cogent argument on any subject. 2) Young people quite often have cogent arguments. 3) Attacking people on the grounds of their youth is simply an ad hominem attack. For example, you are apparently born in 1969 making you nearly 40. You've had a number...

Freedom of expression should not be supressed by accusations of sexism.

brian_eggleston
Danielle

I would like to invite a fellow debater to demonstrate that I am wrong when I contend that freedom of expression should not be suppressed by accusations of sexism and that the controversial comments I may make in the course of my arguments should be kept to myself. I would welcome a challenge from a male or female but I suspect I am more likely to receive a rebuttal from a man, as there appears to be far more male members of debate.org than there are female members. Interestingly, this mirro...
