Is it okay to censor nudity and swear words but not extreme violence?

Fuzzed
xitost

On mass media, theres this strange phenomenon. You can watch Family Guy where a baby tortures a dog. You can watch South Park where a child gets another child to eat his parents. You can watch the serial killer Dexter kill people and carve their bodies up. It is absolutely acceptable to show violence so severe it would make many of us sick to see in real life, but censor's feel that the F word that we all hear daily, or a womans nipple (which most of society would have seen by age 16) i...

Should prostitution be illegal, while pomography is not?

Link123109
FAAL

No, prostitution should not be illegal if pomography is not. They are literally the exact same thing, save for a camera. Pornography is defined as "printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings." While prostitution is defined as "the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for payment." Pornstars are people who actually do this for a living...

Police in Baltimore should not wear riot gear.

Wylted
Arter

The rounds are 3 hours long and have a 2,000 character limit. So before accepting, keep that in mind. I'm willing to negotiate down to 60 minutes if the timing of acceptance is right. Full Resolution: The police in Baltimore should not wear riot gear, unless there is a high likelihood of a riot actually breaking out in the particular area they occupy. We will not be defining high likelihood at all. Just use common sense to determine what that means. So no semantics and let's just debate wh...

Global warming is an issue.

kdog519

I feel that global warming is a huge issue, it is destroying our earth! It is harming animals and our environment. Without putting a stop to this, there could be many more problems in later time. We are already using so much of the Earth and destroying it by using too many natural resources, but by causing more global warming, we are making it harder for the Earth to catch up with us using all its sources. Its hard for the Earth to support us so we need to keep that in mind and make sure we are...

Women have less rights than men in the US.

First of all I just joined this site, so don't expect too much from me in terms of knowing how to navigate around the site and do everything, but on to the debate! I believe strongly in the fact that men and women have equal rights (In the United States, don't bring other countries' rights and laws into this). I will name some points and facts that I AGREE WITH and have researched below. Agree or disagree with each point and state why you do, and if you think of more points then go ahead and bri...

Does hair connstribute to show if you're gay or a lesbian?

Misatheginger
8elB6U5THIqaSm5QhiNLVnRJA

This isn't a religion argument. Coming from a catholic girl, I have gay/lesbian friends and support them no matter who they choose to love. Have you even seen a guy/girl change their hair style out of nowhere? Does it surprise you? It surprised me when my friends have changed their hair color or cut their hair, but does it contribute to their sexuality preferences? In my view, it does. Every one of my friends who have "came out of the closet" have changed their hair in different ways. Different...
