Should social media comments be protected by free speech?

Lids
Susanita

There is much controversy over the topic of free speech in social media comments. I believe that people should have the right to free speech on social media sites. One reason for this claim is that the internet is a place where anyone can share their opinion freely. Free speech has been an important part of the web for as long as it has existed. To take this away would prevent millions of people from expressing their views, and would go against the most fundamental aspect of the internet. We nee...

Career debate: Psychiatry

Capitalistslave
GodTier

Rules of debate:1) Con should name a career that they will be arguing for in round 1. Since we will both be arguing why our career is better than the other, we both have a burden of proof. 2) No insults, personal attacks, ad hominem3) The total number of rounds used for argument should be the total you see here minus 1. This is to keep the total number of rounds used for argument even between us, since I am not using round 1 for argument4) The last r...

What Grande PATISSERIE is better

Well, I think that the Cheese and Berries flavor is more consistent than the Apple flavor. With the apple flavor you only get one flavor and for the same price? So why wouldn't you want to 2 flavors for the same price? It's crazy that this is even an argument. The nutritional facts may vary by person, but for a good snack during 3rd hour, you can get 250 calories worth of deliciousness. The Apple flavor has 370mg of Sodium, so obviously the Cheese and Berries flavor is a healthier choice and a g...

Should Transgenders Be Allowed to Join the BSA

TMNGerbil
BrendanD19

Let us assume that by transgender people we mean girls "feeling" they're boys. The BSA - BOY Scouts of America - is specifically for boys. Yes, there have been girls in it before, but that was either cub scout leaders or CO-ED/venture groups. I know because I'm in one. Those girls who believe they are boys have that right to live in the delusion that they are boys, but that doesn't change their genetical make-up. "Oh, but what about 'the treatment'?" That does nothing. It's just like som...

Transgenders who identify as Boys be allowed to join a Boy Scout Troop

princesspetty
Cogitatio-et-veritatis

Transgender children who identify as males should DEFINITELY be let into a Boy Scout Troop. It is a boy scout troop not a biologically born boys troop. Many children who change genders do it because they aren't interested in what their original gender does or is classified as. If a biological girl wants to become a boy and join a boy scout troop, let him/her. They probably aren't interested in selling cookies and doing crafts (although that isn't all girl scouts do) should be able to join a BS T...
