Prostitution Should Be Legal

LuciferWept
landonsumrvl5

A short debate.Not to be confused with the unrelated debate on the morality of prostitution, the debate here is concerned with whether or not Prostitution should be legal.To briefly state my case:Prostitution, whether it is prohibited by law or not, will always exist in Society. There will always be a Demand for sex, and likewise there will always be a Supply of it. Many of the woes that people claim come with legalized prostitution (pimping, child traffi...

Qualified Immunity

Hayd

IntroHayd asked for people who were willing to debate old LD topics with him, and I was happy to volunteer myself. I don't believe Hayd and I have debated yet, so this should be a wonderful opportunity to do so--he is an excellent debater, and I look forward to our upcoming exchange.As this topic involves a controversial subject on which people may or may not have strong opinions, I have opted to nominate a judging panel of people I know to be qualif...

I believe we should have gladiator matches for death row inmates and prisoners with either life or just bad for the prison. For death row inmates it will be a 1 v 1.

I often encounter people who view it as extremely evil, but I just don't get that view. Does anyone who holds that opinion care to logically explain why it's bad?...

School uniform: good or bad

Sedna5
Beasterrr50

I think that kids uniforms are boring kids want to be unique they want to be their self no uniforms is one way to do that. Kids want at least a little bit of freedom and that's the way to give them the little amount of the originality they have but they can't use because they have uniforms. It's not like money or something like that but it is the ability to be your unique and original self. I think that you should consider to stop the uniforms in exchange for originality and with the originality...

Black History Month or any month celebrating a specific ethnic history only promotes more racism.

By accepting this debate, you realize that- 1. This is a controversial topic, relax and let's have a nice debate 2. I will be arguing that "Ethnic history months only promote more racism." 3. BIASED and UNRELIABLE sources are not allowed (philosophy, statistics, logic, and everything else is allowed.) 4. Clearly label parts of your debate speech so your points are understandable. 5. Finally, just so we both know what we are getting into, your first post or argument would be accept...

Do you think that watching violence on TV and in films encourages youths to be aggressive and antis

Quina

I believe that television does offer a window to violence, especially when they watch violent games. I have two grandkids ages 8-9, who used to watch some children's shows. I noticed that after they finish watching the show they run to their room and grab their toy guns, and start shooting at each other. In other occasions, they start hitting each other and fighting just like the show they just watched. I do firmly believe that some children's shows do more harm than good. I do not allow my gran...
