Prostitution should be illegal.

Nymphomaniac

This debate is about prostitution. I believe prostitution should be legal, but I've chosen to argue a side I don't believe in, to keep things interesting. This should be fun! There are three rounds. The first is for acceptance. The second is for arguments. The third is for rebuttals. I have made the voting open to members with a minimum Elo of 2500. I also ask voters explain their decision. That should keep randoms from voting and ensure a fair assessment....

Should marijuana be legal in all states?

larsheyton

Marijuana is not a damaging "drug". Marijuana is actually a plant,not a drug. There are no chemical processes or alterations to make it the way it is. There are no risks of withdrawal sickness or addiction. The effects it induces are not bad, either. It is not a hallucinogen, it just makes you incredibly tired,giving you a state of relaxation. If marijuana was legal,it would replace the tobacco industry. Cigarettes and dip are much more dangerous than marijuana. Cancer rates would lower, second...

Should Kids Get Tattoos

Chandler19
JMcBride

In the 20th century, only rebels and biker gangs had tattoos. Today, one in five Americans have at least one tattoo. However, just because everyone else has one, doesn't mean you should get one. Three reasons you should NOT get a tattoo are they're permanent, it's unsanitary, and most people think they're ugly. First off, all tattoos are permanent. Whether you get a small Japanese symbol that no one can read or a pair of wings on your back so you can jump off the roof and finally fly, they wi...

The first pregnant man was not a man, thus he is not the first pregnant man II

funnycn
wampe

The first time I debated this, my opponent forfeit. I remade it.I hold the position that the first pregnant "man" was NOT a man at birth, thus he/she should NOT be considered the first pregnant man. Con, or you, hold the position that he is technically a man, thus should be considered the first pregnant man.

The Humanities are an important part of any Education Curriculum

UchihaMadara
Pfalcon1318

Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, given Pfalcon's history of being an honorable opponent.There are a couple of important definitions for this debate...Humanities- subjects relating to the study of human culture; generally includes art, architecture, music, literature, the performing arts, and the history of each of those...

Should Minors Ages 14-16 Be Allowed To Get Tatoos With A Parent's Consent

chocothunder

I am for minors ages 14-16 getting tattoos with a parent's consent. Think about it. If a family member passes away, and they didn't have any belongings or trinkets left behind to give them, this would work. Say your grandparents died. You didn't know them very well or anything about them, except that they loved you very much, and didn't have anything to give you to remember them by. A tattoo can't get broken or lost; it's the perfect solution. Also, if minors age 14-16 think that are "grown" and...

Meditation should be compulsory for all citizen of post-industrialized societies.

infiniteone
Shrek_sDrecKid

Firstly I purposely gave this debate an inaccurate title. No person has the right to have authority over another (parents and children excluded), therefore a law stating all people must meditate is wholly wrong. However, education about meditation should be taught in schools as a compulsory and offered to all citizen on a free and leisurely basis. People in post-industrialized societies are suffering from overloaded subconsciousness. Technology has created a symbiotic relationship with the brain...

Discrimination can sometimes be correct.

RatofDoom2
Imperfiect

Discrimination is never correct due to the fact, that it pointlessly hurts people for no apparent reason. How can judging someone on their sex, skin colour, or even hair colour ever benefit our society in any way, shape or form? It makes no sense. People using discriminative terms for no logical reason are emphatically wrong. Think about it this way: The person who is being insulted at with your discriminative statement could go onto self harm or even commit suicide. There have been many...
