Political Correctness on college campuses

Agbonne
Tru2Me

Political Correctness on a college campus has gone too far. I now cannot refer to anyone without worrying about offending them or "hurting their feelings," in some way. Is this really necessary to come up with a euphemism for every race, gender, religion, ability, disability, or mental state? Americans are plagued with hypersensitivity and in my opinion, this is weakening the strong backbone of this sovereign nation. The use of excessive political correctness is threatening the thought of the in...

Who would win? Marceline (adventure time) con, or Alucard (Hellsing Ultimate) Pro.

SketchyAlpaca

Note that I am talking about pre Schroedinger Alucard, and post Stakes Marceline. I believe that Marceline is more powerful and would win in a battle against Alucard. Marceline, first off, is a demon, not a vampire, and it has been proven that she can't be killed like an ordinary vampire, or demon. The only disadvantage she has ithat Alucard is the kingdom of Dracula, not just a single person. However, in previous episodes, Marceline has proven that she can suck souls that have already been cons...

Note: The framework of this debate is based on net benefit promoting the greatest happiness of the greatest number of people more specifically that students" safety is the most important duty of public schools. Our first contention is that probable cause is detrimental to school safety. Without probable cause, it is much harder for law enforcement and school administration to find hidden weapons, with can lead to school shootings. In these situations, students" lives are at stake.

Debate.Org User Information Bulletin (Official)

bsh1

Aloha!This debate, formerly known as the "Debate.Org Presidential Bulletin," is part of an effort I am making to reach out to more areas of the site and to update more users about site programs. I recognize many members may not frequently visit the forums, and so I conceived of this debate as an alternate way to disseminate information out into the larger DDO community. I will post information about several programs that users can avail themselves of in this debate,...

School Uniforms

School uniforms have been around for many years. I believe it's time to drop the uniforms, and allow students to wear as they wish. Many supporters of this highly-debated topic say that school uniforms keep students, especially the ladies, modest. I don't see how a short skirt is keeping the girls modest, and isn't that what the regular public school dress code is for? Keeping their students dressing appropriately? School uniforms are doing nothing to benefit the education system. Making...

Abortion. Yes or No?

alysonreid
YatesUni

Many religious families teach their children to not believe in abortion. Often, people believe that aborting a baby, kills it. But what about the children who are already born? The kids who were abandoned and left homeless because their mother couldn't take care of the child? What if they died just because they were forced to be born when the mother wasn't healthy enough? With protesters constantly trying to close abortion clinics, scenarios such as the ones I just listed are happening more and...

Evolution is a religion

Thiest_1998
rbhutoria

Hi I'm Thiest and I believe that evolution and science is an oymoron because science by definition is a study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. and since evolution does none of those things I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. By evolution I am talking about: Cosmic evolution: the origin of time, space, and matter from nothing in the "big bang" Chemical evolution: all elements "evolved" from hydrogen Stellar evolution: star...
