Should transsexuals with penises use the girls restrooms or locker rooms?

Herooftheyear
Coveny

I don't think gender dysphoria should be encouraged just because someone thinks they are something that they are not. I will not call a cat a dog even if the cat thinks its a dog. Your mental state doesn't or shouldn't effect reality nor will i let it....

God exists.

Ockham
creationtruth

The proposition is that God exists. Pro will be defending the proposition that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists. Pro can define the God they want to defend, within reason. An example of a reasonable definition of God is "an omnipotent, all knowing, perfectly good being." An example of an unreasonable definition of God would be "love" or "the universe." The point of this requirement is to allow Pro some freedom to define what they believe in or...

Basic arguments (no rebuttals) 3. Rebuttals. Definitions: Objective: Based in the object, rather than the subject, of the object-subject relationship.

Morality is indisputable.

CosmoJarvis

Thank you for participating in this debate. I will be arguing in favor of the view that morality is indisputable. In order to qualify for this challenge, you must have completed at least 1 debate. (IFF) morality requires principles (AND) principles require truth (AND) truth requires fact (AND) fact requires indisputability (THEN) morality cannot be disputable.

Secular Morality (Pro) vs. Reigious Morality (Con)

TheMarketLibertarian
QueenDaisy

This debate has 2 resolutions, 1 for each side, whoever proves their resolution wins. Pro must prove that Religious Morality is fallacious, and that there is an objective way to judge human behavior. Con must prove that Secular Morality is fallacious, and that there is no objective way to measure human behavior aside from a religious text.
