Resolved: That the fight for LGBTQ equality should be less focused-on than it is.

ConservativeDDO
Teaparty1

Round one is for acceptance only. I don't care about proper formatting, I only wish for my opponent to argue his/her point as best as possible. As Pro, I will attempt to explain why LGBTQ equality is not as important as people make it out to be. Good luck!...

Should CA be split into 6 states

bluekittykat
PlagueDoctor

NO WAY!! This is a illogical idea! Imagine visiting a friend who lives an hour away, but then finding out you have to cross a boarder to get to them! Or, if you have a great job that is a few hours away. You might have to cross from Silicon Valley to Central California. Also, Jefferson is a strange name. So is Central California. And if people want more counties, CA already has 58. We don't need 12 more!! Raise awareness and prevent CA from splitting up into more states. Stop this absurd idea fr...

Violent video games, banning of

Alice-is-always-right
TGambit

I think that violent video games should be banned because what good are they doing to society!!! Violent video games encourage a more violent society. The exposure to violence such as killing and assault. The extent to this brutality has become ridiculous and we are letting people play them for hours on end. What is this doing to our young people who are influenced by what they watch. For example there was an 14 year old boy committed murder with a hammer after repeatedly playing manhunt which...

Affirmative action

Dictator777
desertdawg

I am strongly against affirmative action for 3 reasons- firstly affirmative action leads to reverse discrimination. Secondly, it lowers the standard of accountability needed to push students or employees to perform better. Thirdly, it chooses people by merit or race not taking into account their merit, achievements, competency etc. Pro- affirmative action side will argue that it serves as a compensation to the minorities and people who were oppressed and strives to bring in equality. To this I s...
