I am doing several debates on the Big Issues. This is the second. My opponent and I will debate on the topic of affirmative action. I am for affirmative action while my opponent is against it. Round 1is for explaining rules and acceptance. Round 2 is when I place down several arguments and my opponent provides a counter-framework. Rouen 3 is for rebutting the arguments placed in Round 2. If either my opponent or I forfeit a round, voters should be aware of this and penalize that person by voting...

Homosexual couples can raise children just as well as heterosexual couples.

Danielle

This debate is based on my opponent's assertion that homosexual couples cannot raise children as well as heterosexual couples. He's agreed to debate me on this topic before; however, due to my work schedule I was unable to participate and had to forfeit. Apparently he has a lot of credible sources to back up his point of view. While I don't care about the automatic loss, I'd like the opportunity for my opponent to defend his beliefs. I'm planning on taking Thursday off, so hopefully that plus th...

Black people in inner city neighborhood should have no rational fear of the police

trueseeker

The news media has done an excellent job in convincing our society that police are inherently violent and racist and participates in an organized scheme to eliminate black people. As an African American citizen of the United States, I am dismayed how organizations like Black Lives Matter and the media continue to build on this MYTH. I proposed that there is no valid reason statistically or otherwise that would sustain the argument that Black people are facing systematic genocide by our nation's...

Modern Feminism is Necessary

dietorangesoda

Dietorangesoda and I have talked before about the necessity of feminism in the west, and have happily agreed to have a debate about it! So here we are now.For the sake of this debate, we have agreed that we will only refer to feminism in America and Canada. I'm more than happy to agree that feminism (or a form of women's/human rights movements) are needed in many parts of the world, especially developing countries. But for this debate, we are talking about the necessity of femin...

Was it right to kill the gorilla?

Sydonay
KuroOkami

OK I see your points they were not bad at all but let me break some things down for you. What you said was true humans are animals as well but isn't it then in an animals nature to protect one of there own kind? Also you said the gorilla did not harm the child (on purpose) but given another 5 to 10 mins would the gorilla have? In the end they made good judgement call to save the kids life. Also another point unlike you or me gorillas don't have a sense of themselves meaning they don't know how p...

Should Transgender MtF be allowed to participate in Miss, Teen, and Mrs Pageants?

genevieve00009
straightup.gong

Pageants are specifically designed for WOMEN! not MtF women. In my opinion, if a MtF woman wants to participate in a pageant, someone that is supporting this should try and create an organization where the pageants are for MtF contestants, instead of disturbing the contestants that the pageant was made for....
