Is nature worth more attention than technology

Tiny_beautiful_nature
dexterbeagle

Nowadays people spend so much time in devotion to technology (our little creation) but we often forget that nature is the one making our lives possible. She is the one that gives us unlimited supply of air and oxygen and she never demands nothing in return. Now imagine yourself creating something and than just giving it for free even though the users of your product harm you over and over again and never even thank you. I don't believe that you would last long. But we have to change our ways bec...

"Ladies first" implies sexism

Encore
blackkid

I will be arguing that one-sided chivalry is sexist and unjustified (so I will be Pro). Chivalry: "an honorable and polite way of behaving especially toward women" http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/chivalry Round 1 is for acceptance and position. 2/3/4 - debate; round 5 is for conclusions. Thank you!...

Should cannabis be legalized?

ludwiglindau
debatability

I do not think cannabis should be legalized in any way except for medical reasons. Cannabis is first of all a drug, allow using cannabis would send out wrong signals which could make people think that it's not wrong testing other drugs to, like heroin and cocaine. Think of it, "the state has legalized" a "drug". Then would some people think that testing other drugs is ok to. The drug do also contain the substance Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This substance can give bioeffects like euphoria,...

Hi debaters. This is my first time about to debate. I'm a future Lawyer, so I wanted to test my debating strength. I'm a university freshman by the way, starting the 25th of this month. As I do with all my debating, I like to give backgrounds in order for my opponents to have an understanding. Background: Anyways, I was on the public bus today on my way home from a long day at my university working out issues, and sadly, a woman was beating her child on the bus. He was a little boy, probab...

All feminist should be MRAs

Soadratm
YaHey

I strongly endorse and believe that it would be incredibly hypocritical to be a feminist and not be an MRA. I define feminist and MRA as anyone who openly supports and is a activist for the respective gender. 1) Feminist ideology stands for the equal treatment of women and men , however, we are currently seeing an strong political movement of feminist who propose the idea of patriarchy or male dominance of society. Whilst not all feminist address or believe in the patriarchy, it is pivota...

American Police are Overly Militarized

sengejuri
Mike_10-4

American Police, as most recently seen in the ongoing Ferguson, Missouri unrest, are overly militarized. BoP is shared. Overly Militarized = the employment of weapons, equipment, and tactics that are disproportionate to the threat. An overly aggressive posture that is counterproductive. Round 1 = acceptance only (no arguments) Round 2 = opening arguments (no rebuttals) Round 3 = rebuttals Round 4 = response/conclusion...

Online relationships don't work

Truth_seeker
TheShadowCupcake

I know i would've posted this when i was younger, but guess it'll have to do lol I argue that online relationships don't work for the reasons that we as humans need physical interaction (face-to-face communication, hugging, etc.) While yes, they might work for an extent, eventually, you will need to see each other in person. Online relationships of any kind can never substitute for real life relationships. Online relationships can get superficial as you both cannot know who the real person is...

Gun control in America.

debatergorl
ColePanell

I would like to debate for gun control in America. I am a firm believer that we need to work towards protecting our citizens, and this idea should outshine all else. The first round is for acceptance only please. As I know this is a very heated debate, remember to keep debates in the debate world and do not let it carry outside of that. Also, a word to voters- please try to put your bias aside and only vote for who made a better case. Thank you....
