If you had to pick between one or the other, what would you rather have with your partner?

Haroush
whiteflame

In this debate, I'll be arguing in favor of intellectual attraction over physical attraction, if we as people had to pick one or the other and couldn't have both. Con will be speaking in favor of physical attraction and how it would be better to have physical attraction with your partner versus intellectual attraction. This is how it is going to go. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening statement as to why you are in favor of intellectual attraction or physical attraction (the pros of i...

Consensual Necrophilia

Jifpop09

Thanks to Jifpop09 for his willingness to engage me on this controversial topic. Just so he and anyone reading this is aware, I will be utilizing (as well as expanding on) arguments I'd made in a previous debate on this topic for my opening arguments. I will, of course, post new arguments for rebuttal and conclusion in the final round. In case there's uncertainty here, I'll provide some definitions: Consensual: relating to or involving consent, esp. mutual consent. In this case, consent...

Should Abortion be abolished?

Should abortion be abolished? I think that it should because your taking another life away from a human being that you were once in their position when you were a baby. How would you feel if you knew that your mom decided to kill something that would have been her blessing?...

Equality In Human Society Is Impossible

Schopenhauer
YYW

Essentially, I will be arguing that economic and social equality in human society is impossible, and that it is unachievable by humans. No trolling, the lay out of rounds are detailed below 1. acceptance only 2. opening arguments 3. rebuttals and closing remarks definitions 1. Equality-the quality or state of having the same rights, social status, etc. By the way, for the purposes of this debate we will be assuming that equality is not subjective, rather a universal concept. Meaning that t...

Should Transgender students be allowed to choose a bathroom?

asidy
murphm17

I wish to debate whether or not transgender students should be allowed to use the bathroom not meant for their sex. I vote no. 1. What does it solve? The idea is supposed to allow transgender students to be more comfortable when using these facilities. These facilities are separated by SEX not GENDER. Transgender students have a gender not matching their sex. This is the problem, but is also very unintuitive. Transgender is when the gender does not match up with your sex. Since bathrooms a...

It is stupid to compare politicla correctness to the rules of a religion

RoyLatham
imabench

My opponent claims it is stupid to compare the rules of political correctness to the rules of religion. He quoted my claim in his list of the top ten most stupid things said on DDO. [1. http://www.debate.org/forums/miscellaneous/topic/35982/1/] This debate provides him with an opportunity to argue for his proposition that the comparison is "stupid." Pro gave no unusual context for his claim, so the primary definition of "stupid" applies: not intelligent : havin...

Is gay marriage wrong?

MrSykoCat
The_Scapegoat_bleats

No, it isn't. I'm not gay myself (or even religious) but to deny the right to have a gay marriage is to deny the right to persue happiness, which is protected by the Constitution of the United States of America....

Is the word "racist" too overused in middle and high schools?

Swiftwoof
grayger

I believe that the word racist is too overused. All you have to say is something about a "white chair" and they call you a racist. Is it really racist? Is it even necessary? Nope. I think it is just a word commonly introduced to the people overusing it and it's really easy to point out. Do you agree?...

AmberLanesa

I believe masturbation is something that is degrading for women, and honestly you lose a lot of respect for yourself when doing it. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I'm open to hearing other peoples input....
