Gay Boy scout leaders.

KingDebater
Dann

The boy scouts made a big mistake when they maintained their position on not allowing any gay leaders [1]. This is because little boys need a diversity in activities, life isn't just putting up tents and tieing knots.What the boy scouts are missing out on are the cool, hip and fun activities that gay leaders would introduce, such as Extreme Sewing Adventures and Radical Rainbow-drawing, with merit badges complete with pink glitter on them.

Should women have weapon or not... ?

Women should not have weapon. as far as i concerned that girls or women have touchy heart means they are very sensitive and if they are provided weapon, they can kill anybody for their own purpose... i would say, women should not be provided weapon this will ruin the economy and women will become criminal.....

People charged with terrible crimes where there is no question of guilt shall be immediately charged

Ariel Castro held 3 women captive and abused and raped them for 10 years and before one of them finally escaped with a child on her side. This is enough evidence to go ahead and charge and sentence him without having to have a trial....

tobacco usage

iamrightyouarewrong

Tobacco is a huge money maker worldwide and we should keep it that way.I have had family that has gotton cancer from smoking and trully they have told me in person: "Smoking is what did this, and the only way you are a true man is if you smoke enough to get cancer"so cancer is not an issue with smokingAlso it is the persons choice to smoke and if they regret it in the future they have no one to blame but themselvesthis is why I urge a pro vote.

Secrecy of Area 51 should be told

Jgar259
imabench

It is not fair that in the United States we can't know what is happening like the government has Area 51 as such a secret that we can't know what it is. I thought this was a free country can't we know what is happening in our country because if we can't than why is it so secretive is there aliens or you found the body of Jesus. Can everyone decide or vote on the government telling us about area51 or for they not to tell us. I'm going against the government that they should tell us about Area 51....

Ariel Castro VS Jodi Arias (who is worse?)

RocketEngineer
ConservativePolitico

Hello everyone! Based on the two biggest issues on the news during the last week, I think this would be a fun debate. How this will work, is that my opponent will pick one person in round one. This debate will be about determining who is more sick and twisted out of Jodi Arias, and Ariel Castro. I will take either one. Debate will take place in rounds 2 and 3. Thanks in advance to whoever accepts this. :)...

Abortion should be illegal with exceptions

STMAknight92
merciless

This is my first debate so please just bare with me. i have had this argument before, but it was me vs. 6 Catholics and they wouldn't let me speak, and just decided that they won. plus they were very aggressive. My point is that people who go and have sex and get pregnant then just because they don't want a child, or feel they aren't ready, should not get the option of abortion. i then feel that the people who are raped, abused, or could possibly die during the pregnancy or birthing proces...
