Are feminists sexists?

khushiiiii23
David_Debates

Since time immemorial, many things have changed. Time has brought an immense change to how the country used to function and many more. People blame feminists for being sexists because they have a stereotypical approach towards the definition of feminism. But they are oblivious of how modern feminists are striving to bring about a change in people"s mindset about feminism. What feminism really means- "the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes". You"re not a feminist w...

The god of the Bible is clearly misogynistic.

The Bible depicts God as thinking less of women by depicting them as inferior to men. God seem to despise women and their treatment in Bible has contributed to their historically inequitable treatment in western culture....

Earth is flat

Youngastronomer

It's almost 2017 and my opponent still believes that the earth is a flying ball! I intend to show my opponent that the earth is indeed relatively flat, excluding those mountains etc. My opponent is new to DDO, so I'll not be strict on structure, he can just freestyle....

Should homework be banned?

Qwerty750
Jac925

I believe homework should be banned since a study by UoM says that the average amount of homework sent home increased by 51% percent since 1981 to 2004. In a study by Stanford, 56% of students considered homework a primary source of stress. Symptoms of stress include depression, low energy, headaches, and frequent infections (stress symtoms from WebMD.com)....

MENS AND WOMENS BOTH ARE EQUAL IN MY OPINION.Women are now taking part in all the debates, elections and they are winning it also.Women are now allowed to go to offices and they also do the household work. Now housewives are not just housewives, they are the housemakers of our houses.To look after house and family, also needs skills that men don't have.Men cannot do the activities that women can do. WOMENS AND MENS BOTH ARE EQUAL.......!!!!!!!!...

"S" is not Harry Truman's middle initial

Kescarte_DeJudica
lighth0us3

In this debate, I will attempt to prove that, contrary to popular belief, "S" is not Harry Truman's middle initial. This will require disproving any and all books, monuments and government documents that read "Harry S. Truman". Why am I doing this? Does it really matter whether or not S is his middle initial? No, not really, but I am a little worn out on traditional debates and wanted to do something different. Here are the rules: 1. No Forfeiting. 2. Follow the Outlined Debate Structu...

Give me riddles

PowerPikachu21
Perussi

I'm going to do something a little different. The Contender must give me at least 6 riddles for me to answer correctly.All riddles must have a true answer. No presented riddles can contain a paradox (like saying "This statement is false. Is it?). If I do catch a paradoxal statement, I automatically get a point. If the question has no true answer (Can't really come up with an example), then I automatically get a point. I'll try to answer the questions the best I can, as to not ab...

THW implement mandatory military service

ZACwuzhier
Agonist

In a world where "freedom of choice" is a right people abuse wrongly, today on proposition, we believe that mandatory military service should be an exception to this abused right. Today I will begin the debate with two arguments: 1 How it will promote Equality 2 How they can protect others, and those before them. But to begin, I will present my Model: You must join between the age of 18 and 35, and you can have a week off for weddings, funerals, etc. Your time in the military will end after...

Alan Turing Should Have Chosen Celibacy

MasturDbtor
dr.jimmythefish

Alan Turing was one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. His contributions to computer science helped crack the enigma machine the Germans used in their submarines, and helped to push forward the progress of information technology. Unfortunately for the world and for himself Alan Turing was persecuted for being a homosexual, forced to chemically castrate himself, and driven to suicide. That was a horrible. Nobody should ever be persecuted for their sexual orientation, especially not...

Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?

Franchie
EXOPrimal

Life is sacred. This is an ideal that the majority of people can agree upon to a certain extent. For this reason, taking the life of another has always been considered the most deplorable of crimes, one worthy of the harshest available punishment. Thus arises one of the great moral dilemmas of our time. Should taking the life of one who has taken the life of others be considered an available punishment? Is a murderer's life any less sacred than the victim's is? Can capital punishment, the death...
