CaptainDogma
Ariesx

If you will take this debate put "ACCEPT" and then make your argument. If not simply put "DENIED" and just leave it there. Now for the rules:ROUND 1:ARGUMENT PHASE this round isn't worth any points, but it will start things up. We're not making any rebuttals, but we are making our own argument. ROUND 2:REBUTTAL STAGE this round is worth 2 points for whoever refutes more points.ROUND 3:ARGUMENT PHASE(2) this round IS worth points and it's all about execution, and whoever makes the more compelling...

[1] (laws are voted on and passed directly by the people) Republic: A constitutionally limited government, of the representative type, created by a written Constitution[1] (laws are voted on and passed by represen...

Is it justifiable to disobey laws?

ChuckTheDuck
WillRiley

Breaking laws and being able to justify it does not necessarily equate with being in the right. Civil disobedience is usually paired with men such as Martin Luther King Jr. or Gandhi. What is usually left out is the people who were less than successful with their movements. A well-known German once stated in his book Mein Kampf, to "forgive your personal enemies, but not those enemies of god". This German later took to power under the name Adolf Hitler. The proverb "the road to hell is paved wit...

Do you think that society's views change the way we dress?

LindaRose97
gannon260

For my Extended Project (A-Level) I am trying to research whether people feel pressurised by society or the media and maybe other factors to dress in a particular way. The idea of this is that I want to compare how people dress today (in the 21st century) to how people would have dressed and what would have been acceptable in say Regency England (15th to the 17th century). I personally think that people (especially women it seems so far from my research) do feel pressurised by the media and by s...

Are girls held to a higher standard than boys?

adroth19
Nivek

Yes, they are. Girls are held to a higher standard just because of stereotypical people from the moment they are born. The first double standard is pink vs. blue. Pink is supposed to be a girl and blue a boy but sometimes it doesnt have to work that way. Girls are allowed to dress and like the color blue as boys are pink. But all in all, girls are held to the standard where they are supposed to be perfect in the eyes of someone. Skinny, good grades, responsible, caring are just a few things that...

Do physical punishments create a good person?

DebaterOfTheMonth
Blade-of-Truth

Physical punishments such as a butt spanking or a beating does create a well mannered child. Personally, I used to get D's and F's constantly in my early life, I was always getting into trouble and causing havoc throughout my early life. My parents would also punish me physically, or as simple as taking away something that I used constantly. This greatly benefited me in so many ways. After two years of this improvement, I started making A's, B's, and C's. I felt like a much better person after t...

The Washington Redskins should change their team name

UchihaMadara
kbub

Thanks to Kbub for agreeing to debate this topic with me! Standard DDO rules apply: first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. A couple of important notes to make on the resolution... -- "Should" implies some sort of obligation, legal, practical, or ethical (or all) -- BOP in this debate is shared; Pro must show that there is some sort of obligation for the Redskins to change their name, and Con must show that there is not. For anyon...

Gay marriage should be legalized.

AshleyWalker75
Lexus

Everyone, men and women, without any limitation due race, nationality or religion should have the right to marry and to found a family. I believe that gay marriage should be acceptable in all places around the world because it shouldn't matter how old or what gender you are, love is love and no one should tell you otherwise. Therefore, gay marriage should be legalized....
