Women on US submarines

browncd81
Danielle

I will preface this debate with two facts: this is my first debate on this site, and I am a former submarine officer, having served for 3 years on a submarine stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. I think the Navy is making a mistake in allowing women to serve on submarines, but perhaps someone can change my mind...

Women are smarter than men

ca2005
Debater1346

Women have a higher IQ than men because they are more committed. Nowadays, in high school, middle school, collage and elementary school girls strive to get good grades. Unlike boys, they study and, boys, by "study" I don't mean reading it once and closing your notebook. Girls memorize. In fact, women have more capacity at remembering than boys. This allows them to get better grades and to have a bright future. I rest my case....

Welfare Recipients Should Be Subject to Mandatory Birth Control

Illegalcombatant

I would like to debate the idea that welfare recipients should be subject to mandatory preventative birth control (i.e., contraception, not abortion) for the duration of time that they receive benefits. I will be arguing in favor of this position.First round is acceptance, with second and third rounds set for rebuttals, and fourth round is closing arguments with no new points being added.Thank you. :)...

A woman's place is in the home

brian_eggleston
PartamRuhem

Research shows that the majority of people believe that a woman's place is in the home: looking after the children; attending to domestic duties and ensuring her husband's dinner is on the table when he comes in from work. [1] Sadly, many women these days have chosen to abandon their feminine duties and pursue careers in industry and commerce instead - and it stands to reason that their families have suffered as a result of their neglect. Meanwhile, there is mass unemployment with the resu...

On balance, Anarchism is More Humanitarian than State Planning

Sieben
Danielle

Every broad argument will be tagged with a letter/number. Elucidation: D1) On balance: Keep the framework reasonable. Ignore the possibility that aliens could invade and destroy every society beginning with consonants. Employ ceteris parabis assumptions. D2) Anarchism: The lack of aggressive monopoly. In this conversation, aggression is distinct from coercion according to the Libertarian ethic. The forceful defense of self ownership and peaceful homesteading is "coercion", not "aggre...

Does Abortion Kill a Human Being?

JoshBrahm
jeeoh

I believe abortion kills a human being. We know the unborn is biologically a member of the human species, because she comes from human parents. Her DNA could also be tested in utero, and we would always find that she has human DNA. Most pro-abortion-choice people, however, agree with the above statement. Their issue is usually the question of whether the human entity killed is a "person," or a member of our species that has basic rights. The pro-choice ad...

The god of the bible does not exist in reality.

debate0101
RonPaulConservative

When the following question is raised, "Does god exist in reality?", it can cause so much confusion. Primarily because the term "god" by itself is ambiguous and does not have a definition that everyone shares and agrees upon. But if you refer to a source that could provide a central definition for such entity, then it helps clarify such question more clearly. A good example that could be used as a common source to identify a particular god and it's unique properties would be the bible: "Do...

Should transgender person be aloud to use a bathroom based on their identification or biology?

Edmond.T
Artipex

A transgender person be using the bathroom based on biology. As a parent, you want to be able to know and see what type of a person who walks in and out while your child or children are using the bathroom. Many people might change their personality for a second in order for them to achieve their goals. For example, a men or woman might pretend to be transgender after seeing someone whom is attractive to them using a bathroom, which can easily cause them to sexual abuse or offend someone in the b...

Speciesism is an unjustifiable form of discrimination.

Freeman
bluesteel

Of all the various forms of discrimination in the world, one of the most common can be found in the way in which humans have treated non-human animals, both in history and in the present day. For as long as the historical record goes back, speciesism (i.e., prejudice on the basis of species membership) has lead most humans to treat animals as if they were mere tools for human fulfillment with no significant moral status. What's more, these views have been defended not just by the general public,...
