US "bathroom laws", on balance, are justified and beneficial to society.

This debate concerns "bathroom laws" recently passed in the United States that involve allowing transgender people to use the bathrooms matching their gender identity. If it is not clear, I am taking the "Pro" side and will be arguing that these laws are justified and beneficial to society. Rules: 1. The scope of this debate should be limited to the contiguous United States along with Hawaii and Alaska. 2. Kritiks and purely semantic arguments are not allowed or tolerated. This is in pla...

Australia Day should be changed from January 26th to another date.

Australia day has a black history. In reality it's the anniversary of the white mans arrival and seizure of Australia. If your ancestors were dispossessed, slaughtered and their families had children taken away and stolen from their arms, Would you celebrate the day it begun? Should Australia day be changed from the 26th of January? For aboriginal people Australia Day is a day of mourning. It reminds them of the genocide that occurred to their people, a time when British settlers separate...

Australia Day should be changed from January 26th to another date.

Australia Day should be changed from January 26th to another date because of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people find Australia Day so offensive and they need to be recognised. Australians to this current day do not recognise the background history that Australia Day means for the Aboriginals. It"s simply insane that anyone could expect Aboriginal people to embrace January 26 as the national day, given what Australia Day actually means to them. Australia Day portrays a variety of meanin...

Introduction:Imagine that you’re pregnant. You can’t bear to go on with the pregnancy, because your newborn would surely not fare well under your current economic state, in which you are burdened with so much debt that you could barely provide for yourself, let alone a newborn. The nearest abortion clinic is a few hundred miles away in another city—another city that you cannot travel to, considering the fact that your car has been repossessed....

Why Australia Day should be changed

CaitlinHS
Jessie.do2015

January 26th, the day that marks the arrival of the first fleet in 1788 is intended to bring the population of Australia together as one. Although, it has been recognised that instead of bringing both Aboriginals and non-aboriginals together it is creating more of a division. January 26th is not the right date to celebrate this, in respect for the Aboriginals. Firstly, Australia Day is known as a mourning day for most Aboriginal and Terror Strait Islanders. When Captain Arthur Phillip arrive...
