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...

Homosexuality is immoral

J.Kenyon
JimProfit

JimProfit has been trolling the forums lately with his anti-gay spiel. Whenever called out on it, he has been unable to coherently explain *why* he thinks homosexuality is immoral. This has led many to speculate that his feelings are owing to personal issues with denial and self-loathing. Here I've provided him with a platform to explain his views to the DDO community and to dispel such rumors. Because Pro has an onerous burden of proof to uphold, I'll give him a head start to lay out his cas...

Tatarize

Before i begin i would like to say that i am not a rascist,nor Nazi,etc...and this is based on what i see in my school and schools nationwide. I am white and i am Scots-Irish and German but most importantly i am an American. When are the blacks going to start saying they are Americans instead of African-Americans. We don't go around saying we are European Americans,Asian Americans etc......we are a unified country...we know your black you know im white. In the inner-city there are many young kid...

Backpacks are better than purses.

I am a woman who doesn't carry a purse. I think they are frivolous and a waste of money. Many women carry purses as a fashion statement and spend more on a new purse than their car payment (ex. Coach brand). I say just use a backpack. They are more practical and you can carry books around which will give you something to pass time if you get stuck somewhere. Plus you don't need a closet full to match your outfits. One for all works just fine!...

DoctaFly
Kleptin

Black people are cool yo. They are funny, intelligent, good at sports, prideful of their heritage, aspirational, chill and da schizz. I LOVE black people. And I love it when they beat down crackas. They deserve it. Who dares to disagree? What say you, whitey?...

Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs

schoolglutton
frank_gore_is_da_best

Claim: Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs Argument: Over 98% of abortion cases happen prior to the 21st week of pregnancy(1). Over 59% of abortion cases happen prior to the 9th week of pregnancy(1). My argument will rest on maintaining that abortion is morally permissible at least up to nine weeks into the pregnancy. 1. http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html...

There should be an age restriction to the people who can participate in debates.

buletman
Rob

First of all, I have wanted to start this debate for a while, but my problem was wondering which side I fell on. There are many young adults on here, <18, that are very capable of forming logical, rational arguments. With that said, there are also some who can/choose/do not do this. However, since I believe this site's main endeavor is the creation of knowledge, in order to not chance missing out on knowledge, we should not restrict anyone from debating, and that is why I'm against creatin...

Cats are the greatest animal known to man.

Yraelz
solo

Let me start this debate with a definition. Cat: Any of several carnivores of the family Felidae, as the lion, tiger, leopard or jaguar, etc. This of course also includes your common domestic cat. Animal: any member of the kingdom Animalia, comprising multicellular organisms that have a well-defined shape and usually limited growth, can move voluntarily, actively acquire food and digest it internally, and have sensory and nervous systems that allow them to respond rapidly to stimuli:...

Black Rednecks and White Liberals

Paradigm_Lost
Danielle

I recently read a book entitled "Black Rednecks and White Liberals," written by a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute, a conservative think-tank on the Stanford University campus. http://www.tsowell.com/Rednecks.htm Needless to say, the book is compelling and chock-full of well-sourced material lending credence to his suppositions. There are a myriad of topics contained within the book, however, as the title of the book suggests, I would like to discuss, well, black rednecks and white li...
