Affirmative action is warranted, yet, not equivalent to reparations for slavery.

TheDebater_101

Affirmative action is a system that was designed to counteract the various prejudices, biases and shortcomings that have been proven to exist in the current system. Though commonly mistaken as solely for melaninated people, affirmative action makes exceptions and allowances for many different groups of people. [i.e. handicapped, women, etc.] Shared BoP Opponent must show how affirmative action is an unwarranted policy that aids only melaninated individuals. Opponent must also prove how affi...

pedophiles should be put to death

bballcrook21

Paedophiles should be put to death because they cause harm and mental scaring and if put in jail they may escape and continued their mass destruction of a child's innocence (perhaps repeatedly).Not only is it safer it may urge the victim to move on knowing that their molester is no longer alive to hurt them....

Gay Is Okay

The U.S. recently passed the law allowing gay couples to get married, but some how, people decide it's still worth protesting against. I still don't understand why. Gay just means that two people of the same gender fall in love. There is no harm in loving someone. According to society and the media, relationships are in, so why is a relationship with two guys or girls bad? Twaimz (Issa) once made a video on YouTube called 'You're Gay' in which he protested against haters and stood up for the...

A Society in which nothing is secure

Lookingatissues
Thefightforfreedom

The Citizens of America today are in a state of unsettled fluctuation where it seems, nothing from day to day remains the same and there are no longer solid understood permanent established guides to live their lives by. Isn't this unsettled condition of present- day life a policy for the dissolution of a nation. Russell Kirk in his book,"The CONSERVATIVE MIND" wrote this about about America's people and the unsettle conditions in which they are living today, "Our great danger lies in the radi...

Animal rights

Conservative12
BillyTheForumGuy

I am challenging Billytheforum guy to a debate about animal rights from a response about the opinion topic "Animals in cages (yes) or set free (no)". I am against animals rights and all organisations for it quite simply put I believe in unregulated animal abuse and testing. I will be organizing my three main arguments in the form of questions, they are: 1. Why should animals not have rights? 2. Why are animals property? 3. Do animals feel anything like us humans do? 1. "Why shou...

Polygamy should be legalized in Canada

catastrophy
Lee001

I will be arguing that polygamy should be legalized in Canada because I don't think it is fair that we do not recognize polygamy but legalize other forms of marriage laws such as same-sex. I do not believe it is up to our government to decide what our citizens should practice in terms of marriage or what they shouldn't. If we believe in rights and free will, who is the government to say polygamy should be banned?...
