THBT denial of rights of an individual can be made only if it infringes upon the rights of another.

UNSTABLE
Mike_10-4

I think that a person's right should be denied only if it infringes upon the rights of another and not when it causes harm to those who exercise the rights themselves.Like smoking should only be banned if it affects others(like passive smokers). But a person should be allowed to smoke if they want in private without affecting others...

The term "Rape Culture" is Beneficial to society

This is all in regards to first world countries. Primarily America and Canada. I tried having this debate before, but like way too many debates here, my opponent left the planet. I will try again - almost anyone can accept. If you cannot, leave a comment and I will decide if I will debate you - I...

HINDI should not be used in India for its development.

gsairam
Atheist-Independent

Hindi might be the official language or national language of India but my question is why Hindi when we use 90 % only English in almost all the various industries , companies, etc . W use the UK English text in most of the daily life and moreover English is regarded as the global language but still Hindi is our national language. Why? if you say that's because most states of India speak Hindi then I believe there are 10 times more people in India who speak English. now the world calls for...

WesternGuy2

They limit rights Yes the good old constitution the foundation of america and this debate Some opponents claim that uniforms are not a fix-all for the problems that plague schools, but instead, violate a student's right to express themselves, as guaranteed by the First Amendment. In a school in california, 73% of the students claim that their first ammendment rights were violated. After they signed a pettition the school went back to the old ways. The case Tinker v. Des Moines decided that s...

Nonsensicality
somenerd224

Gay marriage is good. Some people would say that in the Bible, it rules against gay marriage, saying that 'any man who lies with another man is sinful', but it also says in the Bible as well that Jesus (you know, the guy who the Bible was practically based on) said to love unconditionally. And if you also view this topic from the religious perspective, if God created mankind, and created everything about them, and knows the past present and future, then He created homosexual people. And why wou...

It is stupid to compare politicla correctness to the rules of a religion

RoyLatham
imabench

My opponent claims it is stupid to compare the rules of political correctness to the rules of religion. He quoted my claim in his list of the top ten most stupid things said on DDO. [1. http://www.debate.org/forums/miscellaneous/topic/35982/1/] This debate provides him with an opportunity to argue for his proposition that the comparison is "stupid." Pro gave no unusual context for his claim, so the primary definition of "stupid" applies: not intelligent : havin...
