Homeless people are homeless by choice

Malik1228

The "homeless person" is either making calculated and immoral choices to be homeless, or they are perceived to be powerless agents who lack the capacity to exercise choices. I live in NYC and the amount of homeless people I see is disgusting, are people just that lazy to get a job....

Black Lives Matter Movement/Protests

Conservatism
KeyserSoze115

In this debate I will argue against the entire BLM movement. If you are not educated on this subject don't bother debating. I will not accept biased opinions of any kind. Emphasis on biased. It will not work because I myself am black. This is to be a statistically accurate and factual debate. Any form of trolling/lying and I will end the debate. I look forward to his/her reply....

The government should not run schools, all schools should be private.

Just as food is not provided for free, yet is a necessity for life which must be earned by parents to feed their child, the same should apply to education. From the financial aspect, not all private schools would be expensive, just like not all grocery stores are expensive. Schools in poorer neighbourhoods would cost less, the price being set proportionately by Free Market. Cheaper schools will not have fancy facilities but still can provide good instruction. Education only requires enthusias...

Feminism should not have been created in the beginning.

I know what you're thinking. I sound crazy. Why on earth with me, a girl wish that feminism wasn't born in the first place. Let me tell you why. Because you can not balance your drink if you tip it to one side. Meaning It should have started gender neutral in the beginning. That would have been a healthier way of tackling the issues of female rights and the inequality that happens between each gender. If you put a label on something to favor one side expect it to bite society right back in the b...

Is the United States of America Sexist?

brinzahar

Hello! First I would like to clarify that my position on sexism is that the US is NOT sexist as women and men are incredibly equal in this country. I also think we should focus on many feminist and political claims made by those who said the USA is sexist (rape culture, gender pay gap, dress codes, etc.) or you can bring a personal observation to the table. I would also like to lay out a quick suggestion, use citations. Thank you for your time, happy typing!...

This debate is a part of the DDOlympics Debate Tournament described here: http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/91542/ We are part of Group D, and as such, this is the first of two debates that both ShabShoral and I will be participating in during the group stage of this tournament. That being said, I'm excited to debate ShabShoral on this intriguing topic, and I"m looking forward to having this debate with him. I don't think there"s much need for ground rules here, but I will at...

The mentally handicapped people don't promote to society, so they should be eliminated.

SJM

I haven't participated in any debates recently, and the last 3 that I created, I was unable to attend to in the required time due to personal reasons. For this topic, please keep in mind that this is not against the physically handicapped, but mainly the severely mentally handicapped. I will save my reasoning for the next round, as this is just an agreement between me and the contender of this argument that he or she accepts my debate request. The rules to this debate are pretty simple: -No t...
