Wylted 100th Debate: The United States should implement caning as a punishment for criminals.

Wylted
thett3

This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

A woman's place is in the home

brian_eggleston
PartamRuhem

Research shows that the majority of people believe that a woman's place is in the home: looking after the children; attending to domestic duties and ensuring her husband's dinner is on the table when he comes in from work. [1] Sadly, many women these days have chosen to abandon their feminine duties and pursue careers in industry and commerce instead - and it stands to reason that their families have suffered as a result of their neglect. Meanwhile, there is mass unemployment with the resu...

Stealing for survival must not be punished.

DebatingQuest

Stealing for survival must not be punished. The person does it because he/she has no other option. If , say, women in a war zone steals the bread because there is nothing else to eat then that is not a crime. Such woman can not be said to be a thief....

Was commuism good for Russia or not?

I think that it was good, for the fact that they had complete control over their country. I personally think that it should be that way in a country and that the stronger force should be in command....

Gay marriage should be illegal

tejretics
Cooldudebro

Pro should begin arguing in Round 1 and post only "no round as agreed" in the final round; we each have 3 total rounds to argue. [Arguing that same-sex couples can have equal rights without use of the word "marriage" is not allowed, since that's entirely semantic, and the resolution concerns the institution of gay marriage itself, not what we call it.]...

There are times both in which abortion should and should not be allowed

InsaneSanity
Geogeer

I should clarify my position because the title isn't long enough to accurately describe it. I am arguing that there are certain times when abortion is wrong and should not be done, and there are times that it is acceptable. Con will try to prove that it is either always acceptable or always wrong. Rules: - Obviously, there will be no attacks on people and no anger. We are debating, not having an online shouting match (as happened between some idiots in my third period today but in person)...

Microagressions and safe spaces

Cobalt14
WhyAbhorReality

I am looking for someone who would like to debate that microagressions are a real issue and one that requires "safe spaces" in places like collage campuses. This person should be prepared to argue what qualifies as a microagression, how and why they are a real issue, and what the consequences of a microagressive statement might be.The first round of the debate will be used to explain our side of the debate, the second round will be used for a rebuttal, and the third round should be used to reply...

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....
