In retribution, they develop four times more of a chance in encountering a mental health disorder, then one in public. Though many may argue that others classify one who's committed a crime to have a mental illness or dissorder, police officers detain one out of two that have a history of a mental illness/disorders, and the majority of the time will d...

Japanese internment by the U.S. during WW2 was justified

Danielle please read round one again before accepting. Let me know if anything is unfair to either of us so it can be amended. I hate FDR and I like using this as an example of how horrible of a human being he was, but I have a confession. As bad as his policies were, the policy in question was justified.

JoshThurlbur
nobleislandbag

52% of teenagers do not identify as exclusively heterosexual. (according to a report by the J. Walter Thompson Innovation Group) 35% of Millennials fall in the same category, and the percentage keeps declining as you move to older generations. This is because gender identity is not primarily caused by nature, but by things like upbringing, your environment, and your education. I stand in affirmation of the following resolution: Gender identity is caused more by nurture rather than nature. We wil...
