Read stemalclean's argument, It's on point. There are certain things kids should not have access to, for their own good. Now, there are intelligent children out there, of course, but as a general rule, anyone under teen age should not be allowed to participate in debates. Heck, many arguments I've seen on this site already sound very ill-written and stupid, and could be kids lying about their ages, so OPENLY allowing them in could only cause more chaos.
Racism against white people is ignored Now, while I wholly agree that there is a valid reason for it to be largely ignored (as history is certainly not on white people's side in this situation), I don't think people should blatantly disregard any clear act of discrimination against white people simply on the premise that their "privilege" has caused them to be spoiled and undeserving of equality.
While there are indeed still racist white people in the USA, the level of hate towards other races among normal, rational-thinking white people is practically non-existent. Compare it to fifty, one hundred, two hundred years ago - the general consensus of white people's views towards other races has drastically changed.
Because of this, I maintain that the above counter-argument - that whites somehow "deserve it" due to their predecessors' (now-despised) views and actions - is ludicrous.
And yes, yes, I do realize and fully admit that racism is far more commonly experienced against non-whites. No, I'm not white.
It is Legal While others may see it as rude, if your personal convictions lead you to refuse service to a party that you don't wish to associate with, you have the right to refuse that service which you provide.
Yes, it may seem rude and ill mannered, but they have every right to do so.
I think it should be taught so students can consider it. Even if some may oppose the ideas of the theory itself, I think that for the sake of consideration, evolution should be left in science textbooks. This is so students can decide for themselves if they accept the theory or not, and by allowing that freedom, the school shows that they are being neutral in the teaching of their students and allowing them to develop their own worldview.
Do you honestly think that companies would hire men if they could get away with paying women less? C Companies would be hiring females left and right.
Aside from that, the myth of the wage gap is just that - a myth. The "gap" was found by taking a broad estimate of men and women across all kinds of jobs and comparing the two, which is ludicrous. It doesn't take into account the different choices that men and women often make, and the fact that men are far more likely to take more dangerous jobs and women are likely (not being sexist) to stay at home or work shorter hours.
Of course, there are women who work the same as men or even more, and they are almost always paid equally, if not more, than their male peers.
It's not "plain and simple sexism".
Nearly everyone on the other side is biased and does not know as much about ST as they do about SW. Before I begin, note what I've called attention to in the headline above. The people on the other side are saying things like "If you said 'yes', you have truly never seen a Star Wars movie before". Ridiculous! I actually have seen one more SW film than ST and I still believe ST would win in a battle of the two universes.
Star Trek is much larger in scope. They have perfected travel at Warp Speed, far exceeding anything Star Wars ever had and giving them a chance to explore reaches of the universe that Star Wars characters would never get the chance to. There is such a multitude of diverse species and organisms that it's almost impossible to list them all.
