Masturbation Should Be Required To Be Taught In School

MaxTheDebateChamp
ArcTImes

Masturbating offers many benefits besides the feel. As the pro side I will be proving that teaching children when they are the age of 11, being that is the average age to hit puberty, would be an effective way to improve lives of both boys and girls. The con side must show the harms of masturbation being taught in schools. I did not post this round to be perverted, but because masturbation is a legitimate way to decrease health risks and to help improve quality of both male and female lives. Ple...

Homeschooling

GriffinSmith

I read what you said about homeschooling. And disagree with almost every point you made. Now, I should preface this by saying- I am homeschooled. However, don't think this gives me any sort of bias towards homeschooling. Just because I'm homeschooled, doesn't mean I enjoy it (though I do). I only want to state that I am homeschooled so that you realize that I am familiar with this on a very personal level and can see things from a different perspective than some people. 1). We socialize. I s...

Poor schoolchildren should clean up after rich schoolchildren or go hungry

The following conversation could soon take place in publically-funded school playgrounds in Britain if they adopt the American system of humiliating kids who are entitled to free school meals by forcing them to clean up after the rich kids. Teacher: I say, you there. Yes you, you nauseating little peasant. You're the girl who gets free school meals, aren't you? Little girl: Yes, sir. Teacher: Your sort make me sick, you scrounging little urchin. Who do you think pays for your school mea...

Should parkour/freerunning be taught as an elective in high schools?

T_parkour

I believe that high school students should have the opportunity to take an elective class to learn parkour and freerunning. For anyone who doesn't know what parkour and freerunning are, here are their respective descriptions according to Wikipedia: Parkour: "Parkour is a holistic training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners aim to get from A to B in the most efficient way possible.They do this using only their bodies and their surrou...

Whats the better nursery rhyme, Mary Had a Little Lam (con) or London Bridge is falling down (Pro)

benhazelton
elisofly2

London Bridge is falling down is very educational. It teaches kids an important event in history. What shall be your argument? Mary had a little lam is an incredibly stupid and immature nursery rhyme as it teaches nothing to the reader. London Bridge provides actual facts about British architecture....

Is 1/3 = 1

chilli0919
lannan13

Suppose this was not the case, i.e. 0.9999... != 1. Then 0.9999... < 1 (I hope we agree on that). But between two distinct real numbers, there's always another one (say x) in between, hence 0.9999... < x < 1. The decimal representation of x must have a digit somewhere that is not 9 (otherwise x == 0.9999...). But that means it's actually smaller " x < 0.9999..., contradicting the definition of x. Thus, the assumption that there's a number between 0.9999... and 1 is false, hence they're equ...
