Abortion should be legal

fire_wings

I'm going to be doing a short debate on abortion. It has only 6000 characters, and only three rounds.The structure will be that the first round will be for arguments, the second will be for arguments, no rebuttals and whatever. The next round will be rebuttals of the opponent's cases, there will be NO defense in each other's cases. If any puts his/her defense in the debate, then they LOSE the debate.This debate will be impossible to accept right now, as I'll probably...

Should Transgender MtF be allowed to participate in Miss, Teen, and Mrs Pageants?

Pageants are specifically designed for WOMEN! not MtF women. In my opinion, if a MtF woman wants to participate in a pageant, someone that is supporting this should try and create an organization where the pageants are for MtF contestants, instead of disturbing the contestants that the pageant was made for....

Independent Western thought is impossible

Kalleth

I will be arguing that, due to the impact of media (all forms) and consumerism, it is now impossible to have an independent thought or a unique emotion.

Political Correctness on college campuses

Agbonne
Tru2Me

Political Correctness on a college campus has gone too far. I now cannot refer to anyone without worrying about offending them or "hurting their feelings," in some way. Is this really necessary to come up with a euphemism for every race, gender, religion, ability, disability, or mental state? Americans are plagued with hypersensitivity and in my opinion, this is weakening the strong backbone of this sovereign nation. The use of excessive political correctness is threatening the thought of the in...
