Modern-day first-world feminism is no longer about gender equality. Many don't care about actual cases of misogyny in places such as Saudi Arabia. They are instead interested in convincing others of a "patriarchy" and a "rape culture" in countries such as the United States. Some have resorted to attacking gamers (GamerGate) and a scientist who wore a shirt they didn't like (ShirtStorm). Feminists seem to have become disliked, and why would feminism be disliked if it truly was a momevent for equa...

School sports are taking up too much time

I feel that school sports are not taking up too much time. If a student cannot handle the responsibility, they must handle that themselves. As long as a student can handle more than one "job," school sports do not take up too much time....

Which Is better? Rock or Country? (From a musical standpoint)

Music_Lover2615
sputnick1

My argument is that, from a musicians stand point, Rock music is better. Pop, rap, country, etc. are simple and basic. Mostly done on a computer and contains simple rhythms that require very little to no musical talent. They mostly contain 1 or 2 cord variations that are repeated over and over and over throughout the entire song, while rock musicians are constantly pushing the musical boundaries with complicated pieces and phenomenal drummers and guitarists. There isn't a country or pop artist o...

Should students be obliged to wear school uniforms?

ayylmao
scurry22

Students should not be obliged to wear school uniforms. People may say that it deters bullying because everyone clad in the same outfit makes them equal. Why do we need to force children to wear the same clothes to promote equality? Everyone is a unique individual and students should have the right to express their personality through their choice of clothing. That in itself will teach kids to tolerate and accept one another regardless of how we dress, and embrace one another's unique difference...
