Fashion is an invented social construct primarily used to reinforce elitism

LoveAndDebate
Futurepresident2048

New here but please feel free to challenge me if new yourself or experienced pro. I currently feel that the fashion industry is an invented social construct primarily used to reinforce elitism, and provides no benefit to society and infact is often a overall negative. To clarify 'fashion' I do not mean people dressing the way they want to, but more the industry;Catwalks, designer brands, magazines, the idea of 'trend' & 'trendiness'. I believe that for example 70's style clothing looks wo...

Kids learn just as much at a public school then a private school.

ProConIK
Wylted

The false accusation is made everyday. "My kid will learn more at a private school, and my kid will then excel more and not do drugs." Before you can even write, your destiny is written. Your destiny doesn't include a type of school. Your kid has a personality. It's not the type of school that will keep your kids out of drugs. It's your kid. Your kid can do well at either school. Its up to the kid how much they want to...

Should doctor assisted suicide be legal?

Sebastian_Ley
Sapphique

This is my first debate, so I figured I would start off with a subject that is both fascinating and controversial. Doctor assisted suicide is the process of a medical professional euthanizing a patient to relieve them from pain, be it mental or physical. The debate will be structured as such: Round 1 is acceptance, round 2 is your main points, (no rebuttals), round 3 is rebuttals, and round 4 is closing statements. I am debating for the Pro side of this debate. I hope to have a good debate,...

the Earth is not 6000 years old (or similar estimates)

WaywardSon
nojmanestro

So This is my first time debating on this website, and I though that this would be a fun topic. The main idea of this debate will be about the age of the earth. This will have nothing to do with religion, just scientific Evidence. I wanted to engage in this debate because of my fundamentalist christian background. I am no longer of the christian faith, but I do still love to entertain all theories on a purely subjective basis. This debate will not take into account any religious text, only scien...

Was Hitler right?

I declare that Hitler, if given enough time, would have improved the economic recesses of Europe, Western Asia, Northern Africa, and possibly the Americas if allowed to invade Antarctica. The penguins would have worked for him in huge ice factories....

Race is a Biological and Genetic Construct caused by microevolution and segregation

Anarcho-Socialist
striatedgs

Hello. I am arguing in favour of the scientific fact that race is a biological, rather than only a social, construct. Before I start, I must define some basic terms: Race: A separate group of people within a species that has obvious, heritable phonotypical variations. Species: A group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding. Social Construct: Social construction is how society groups people and how it privileges certain groups o...

Eternal life is existing

Therammo
He8it0412

The basic premise proceeds from the assumption that the probability of a world coming into existence exactly like our own is greater than zero (we know this because our world exists). If space is infinite, then cosmology tells us that our existence will recur an infinite number of times. We also know for a fact that we are made of atoms and particles. Giving infinite time and space, there will eventually be same atoms and particles IN SAME ORDER, therefore our existence is cyclical and not li...

The Use of Animals within Scientific Research

dayawjmsc2015
DayawKmsc2015

Before the publication of "On Fabric of the Human Body" by Andreas Versalius, people were dissecting animals in hopes understanding the human anatomy. It was not until Versalius had published his book that the world understood the functions and positions of organs within the human body. In comparison to animals, many areas were positioned differently than the human body. Animals also have alternate functions to certain organs due to their diets and their habits of walk, mating, etc. Currently, t...
