Should Animals Be Used for Cosmetic and Cleaning Product Testing in the USA?


Many arguments have arisen with the growth of the animal rights movement such as the difficulty of enforcing an abolition of animal testing. There are many animal rights acts that have been put into place and enforced that were controversial at the time they were created. An example would be the Humane Slaughter Act that prohibits the use of painful slaughtering methods on farm animals. The only requirements I could find for research facilities was the regulations for any indoor facility used to...

Should religious bakers be forced to bake cakes for gay weddings?


Hey everybody, I made this debate because I have many opinions regarding politics, social issues, and even a little bit of economics, but I have a hard time expressing them with people I know. So, I just thought it'd be great to share my views anonymously, and even get challenged on them, forcing me to really think. And yes, I know this is a rather old topic, but I still want to talk about it and debate on it. Well, before we get started, I just wanted to say that I completely support the rig...

Should Black Lives Matter Apply to Black On Black Crime?


I think Black Lives Matter should cover all things involving "black lives", that includes the black on black crime rate. Police brutality is one thing, but we are killing each other at a faster rate than other races are killing each other. And usually its over senselessness. I don't understand why we are more focused on forcing other people to care about black lives when we don't care about our own lives. Last time I checked rich black people never stay in all black neighborhoods. Why? Because t...

Homosexual couples can raise children just as well as heterosexual couples.


This debate is based on my opponent's assertion that homosexual couples cannot raise children as well as heterosexual couples. He's agreed to debate me on this topic before; however, due to my work schedule I was unable to participate and had to forfeit. Apparently he has a lot of credible sources to back up his point of view. While I don't care about the automatic loss, I'd like the opportunity for my opponent to defend his beliefs. I'm planning on taking Thursday off, so hopefully that plus th...

The Gender Spectrum is nonsensical


I have not yet had a proper debate on this topic. I assume that groups that believe in the Gender Spectrum have atleast some people who have proper and logical arguments to support this. If gender is a spectrum, i.e. a continuum between two extremes, then everyone would be "Non-binary". Which would make the concept of a "Gender spectrum" redundant and meaningless. Round 1: Greetings and acceptance; opening. Round 2: Arguments, rebuttals Round 3: Rebuttals and closing....

Using taxes to build football stadiums is not justified.


PrefaceI was recently made aware of the fact that, in the last few decades, new football stadiums have been constructed with the use and spending of our tax dollars. I personally was unaware of this, and do not support such spending by our government. I find it unjustifiable. Full Topic On balance, the use of our taxes to fund the construction of new football stadiums is an unjustified use of our taxes. <...

Multiculturalism is impossible because some cultures are better than others.


This is not a debate about race or religion! Believing one race is superior than another is racist. Believing that a culture is superior than another is a valid argument, they can be measured using Human Development Index, access to education, access to health care, literacy rates, poverty rates and anything that shows that cultures overall positive impact of human existence. Pro will make the case that all cultures are not equal, some are much better than others making mulitculuralism ine...
