Should art be taught in schools?

Rainyi

Should art be taught in school? Why, what a wonderful question. Of course, I would say yes. Obviously. But there is more to art than just jumping around looking like a maniac (and just for your reference, that does not happen). I dance six days a week and I can honestly say life has been moving to my bad side, I wake up gloomy and not happy at all. But I remember that I once got A's and B's and now I have A+, and no, I don't have time to study so I remember things and I move along. Art can a...

there is no logic in fantasy logic is absolute if you are lost in the forest and hungry, and you pick up a mushroom and eat it, does it matter what you think is going to happen if the mushroom is poisonous? logic is determined by matter, not by your thoughts.. you crazy person :) you cant read these words on the screen with your eyes closed, cause and effect, absolute if apples became poisonous today, and...

Should prostitution be illegal, while porn is not?

Link123109
Ragnar

No, prostitution should not be illegal if porn is not. They are literally the exact same thing, save for a camera. Pornography is defined as "printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings." While prostitution is defined as "the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for payment." Pornstars are people who actually do this for a living. They...

Is rape taken as seriously as it should be in America?

Josh.S
Mister_Man

I do not think rape is taken seriously in America. I feel like I live in place where rape is promoted in our music, media and movies. I will be mostly discussing rape towards women, since it's more commonly reported. For instance in 2012 a 18 year old female was raped at a frat house and they completely mishandled the situation. They gave her an option of confronting her rapists and started to make her story seem like bogus. Here is a link to the article. http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/201...

Should the pledge remain in the public school system?

Unpopularopinion
shaduwarsenaal

There are no benefits to having 6-18 year old's do the pledge. They don't even know what they are pledging about, they do not use it for its purpose, and they do not suddenly become more patriotic after saying it. When students are taught the pledge, they are not told what they are saying, why they are saying it, or even what the word "allegiance" means. All they are told is "you're gonna say this and you're gonna like it!" Then during the moment of silence, when we're supposed to appreciate our...

Are dogs better pets than cats?

HannahC2002
Littlelarge15

Dogs are better pets than cats because they are always glad to see you. My dog, Peppy, always gets so excited when I come home from school. Dogs always seem to know what you're thinking and feeling. They're very compassionate. My dog will always cheer me up when I'm sad. Cats, on the other hand, are very above it all. They often seem like they don't need you. One can't just pick up a cat and cuddle with it because most cats don't like being held. They will scratch at you, and it hurts a lot. Cat...

It is likely that a God or gods exist

orangutan
usernamesareannoying

Is it likely that a God or gods exist? I am not interested in a semantic debate. By God or gods, I do not refer to a specific monotheistic Judeo-Christian conception of God. Rather, I use a more general, commonplace definition in which gods are either supernatural creators of the universe or even simply supernatural entities that are responsible for a specific aspect of the universe (for example, Poseidon is the god of the ocean, or Mars is the god of war). That is not to say that God cannot...
