Ten Most Controversial Debate TopicsRickyReeves I am a Debate Student, and I feel that these topics are controversial.
The Top Ten
Not really. It doesn't make sense to ban all child performers, maybe some especially those that aren't in overly pressuring industries, and that are doing it for fun. A young violinist is a child performer, yet he is never told he should stop performing? My guess is that people don't really understand what 'child performer' means and assume, erroneously, that it involves acting or singing, which is not true.
No they shouldn't - ElSherlock
Child Performers should not be banned because there can be some really talented children out there. If we just ban them SO much talent,shows, and movies will be lost. Think about it. (Also by the way I agree Full house was awesome! )
No. Full House was awesome.2 Comments
It is more selfish to allow a baby being born into a world where it is not wanted and in a society that is already crumbling than letting it rest in peace where if the mother is eventually ready to have a child it can be welcomed. Meaning it would be placed into a bad environment where it would have lived a much tougher life. BUT not only that a life which already exists and is present on this world is going to suffer even more with mental and physical pain being brought on by being forced to have a baby in which this woman does not want.
It's the mothers choice at the end of the day and what she does is her decision alone
Euthanasia happens only when someone will only suffer and never recover. As for abortion, as a guy who can't get pregant I feel indifferent about it. - Kuro
Abortion is murder, but I'm pro choice, and that won't change - Luckys25 Comments
Animal testing should be banned. If it is necessary, I understand how testing for medicine could be helpful to us, but testing cosmetics on animals is a definite no. Cosmetics aren't life-saving, so they shouldn't kill animals to formulate them. Also, humans are already killing off so many innocent animals through hunting, pollution, and in the meat industry-- is it necessary to kill even more?
I'm an animal love at heart as well as a vegetarian, but if a vaccine, medicine or new drug doesn't work and hurts or kills something, I'd rather it be an animal. Also if the roles were switched- people being tested and animals left alone, people would be saying that animals should be the ones being tested. - RustyNail
Yes, especially on cosmetic products.
It depends on what they're testing and how the subjects are treated. - RoseWeasley9 Comments
Since it hasn't killed anyone and alcohol & cigarettes are allowed, then totally. - Kuro
Yes. It should. Especially for medical use. - DarkBoi-X
For medical pruporse only - ElSherlock
Of course. Honestly, that shouldn't even be a question. Love is love. All love should have equal rights.
Yes. It should stay legalized in the United States because some people are homosexual because of the nature of the human brain. - JoeBoi
No.What is the purpose of marriage if same sex marriage be legalized? Bible isn't the only basis.It is beautiful to look if a women to women and men to men what is the purpose of a sex and gender? what I'm pointing here is I disagree to legalized same sex marriage.
nah - Crizz13 Comments
Well, the only people that should get the death penalty are rapists, serial killers, and terrorists. - JoeBoi
No. Mass murderers and pedos should get it. - DarkBoi-X
Depends - XxembermasterxX
No, it shouldn't. If it were up to me, murderers would be put to death, or put in jail for life. Same for rapists and other terrible people like that. - LordDovahkiin5 Comments
God created science. - I80
Science, since it actually has proof. - Kuro
They don't serve the same purpose and you don't have to choose between them - Alkadikce
Religion - Luckys10 Comments
Yes and anyone who thinks otherwise is a jerk( this coming from a 12 year old)
Yes - yungstirjoey666
Yes. - DarkBoi-X
Ofc! It should not matter about the gender of the parents! As long as the child is in a safe home10 Comments
No.. that's like a kid being payed for going to school. That's not how it works lol - xEliHbkx
What if they have jobs but they are currently not in their home country where their job is for about 30 years now, my mother herself is in that position.
No they are housewives for a reason.
Nah. They should just go find a job3 Comments
Yes - blackflower
No on abortion, yes on euthanasia, if with the patient's consent. - LordDovahkiin
Yes and yes
Prostitution itself should be legal, but it should be independent work; no pimps involved - yungstirjoey666
It is already illegal - ElSherlock
Prostitution should not be made illegal. Rarely do women have complete power over their bodies and someone else's, especially when it comes to sex. Even if it is male prostitution this is a well paying and an economically beneficial job that if controlled and done in the right way, benefits everyone involved. I don't want to be a prostitute, but props to anyone who chooses to do so. We should not be putting people in jail for doing something to benefit themselves, especially if they chose to do it. It isn't our choice, it's theirs. - Pergipsy
It already is illegal, and no.4 Comments
I don't care
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder <3 respect all.
-peace, el wazir
If you put someone down that tried their best to look great and just because you're too lazy to take the steps they did means beauty contests should be banned, no, I don't think so. Why don't we stop showing professional athletes, some of us aren't as good and it makes us feel insecure. Why don't we stop letting people be rich, it makes the less fortunate feel bad. Get this joke of a controvery outta my face... firstname.lastname@example.org if u wanna talk about it.
No, but it should be regulated - yungstirjoey666
No. It can be used for self defense. - DarkBoi-X
America's obsession with guns is ABHORRENT! In the countries where guns are illegal, there are N O SHOOTINGS!
Yes - blackflower3 Comments
Depends on the reason. - DarkBoi-X
No, every animal to ever exist has naturally feared death, so if someone kills themself they do not fear the very thing that all species are fearful of.
No, it is round. - I80
No, unless your brain is flat. - MrCoolC
No, it's shaped like a dick - RoseWeasley
Actually, it's shaped like a banana3 Comments
I only recognize Israel. Palestine is probably just an area controlled by terrorists with no real government. - JoeBoi
Israel - ElSherlock
Whom do you choose - homeland of Jews/a bunch of goons
No. Whoever thinks this is probably a member of the Taliban. - DarkBoi-X
Whom from what middle eastern country put this here - Kuro
No! - RoseWeasley
NO WAY! Whoever came up with this was probably a man intimidated by a woman's intelligence.7 Comments
On child and animal abusers - RoseWeasley
It should be legal on criminals. - DarkBoi-X
On rapists and pedos yes - yungstirjoey666
If the volunteers agree and get payed. - XxembermasterxX3 Comments
You can't control what people say or think no matter what you do - Kuro
No one should say it with hard r but only black should say it with the a. - Luckys
No one should say it - ElSherlock
Nobody should be able to say it - RustyNail6 Comments
No it's not - ElSherlock
Water is wet, sure it makes other things wet, but that still doesn't mean it's not wet. I just don't understand why everyone believes water isn't wet.
No water is not wet. Water is what causes something to be wet. An object being wet is an effect. One thing or concept can not be both a cause and an effect. I REST MY CASE.
No it isn't! of course it isn't! is fire burn?2 Comments
Well it depends on the mind of said serial killer. Psychopath? Nature. Sociopath? Nurture.
Kill serial killes
Neither. Both might be too extremist. - JoeBoi
Meninism is for incels - Kuro
Depends on feminism - ElSherlock
As a male, we've never really been oppressed so Meninism seems stupid.
But for Feminism it depends. Not a huge fan of 3rd wave feminism but other than that it's fine. - DarkBoi-X
These dragon ball fanboys - ElSherlock
Goku is omnipotent and superman is not... Superman's weakness lie in the Kryptonian stone but Goku has no weakness... As it was stated in Anime that Saiyan is a race which becomes more Powerful and Stronger as they fights more battles...
Super man will of course win
Goku. - LordDovahkiin2 Comments
Fortnite. It's more intense and fun. I also like that you can build and mess around in it. PUBG is too serious and realistic.

Of course. Imagine thinking no. - DarkBoi-X

The big gay - Kuro
Straight...how it this controversial.
They gave us existence lol. - Crizz
YES, YES IT SHOULD.
No. You pray to someone you have never seen because you have faith in Him.
No. Praying is having a conversation with God, even though he knows everything you think. Prayer is an action to show faith.
If I ask you do unicorns exist, you will probably say no, no one had ever seen one. So why believe andere pray to something no one had ever seen?
I don't see how... - LordDovahkiin

We need this to create catgirls, so I support 100% - Kuro
If it were to remove hereditary diseases, then yes. If it were so parents can change how their kid looks and acts, then no.
Yes - blackflower
Yes, they should. To properly care for and feed dogs, it costs hundreds of dollars every year and we should not have to pay to give love to a well deserving animal. - Pergipsy
Yes, only makes sense.
In certain tech classes maybe - Kuro
Then you're bi/pan - Kuro
Its called being bisexual, that when you're attracted to both sexes. And its okay.

Great movie1 Comment
Kirby will suck them up
That movie sucked. Also Batman. - LordDovahkiin
I honestly believe that the priorities should be geared towards nearby countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia. However, Europe should not deny refugees either, considering the fact that refugees have been going through hell escaping from wars; accepting refugees is a basic human decency. I don't know what these alt-right people are thinking, but there are more important things to worry about than "preserving" culture. - yungstirjoey666
The only thing I’m worried about this is overpopulation. I understand that these people have risked their lives fleeing their unsafe home countries, but how about we let them in. - JoeBoi
Yes - blackflower
I'm not religious, but I still agree with this. - Kuro
Who cares? Gods sins outweigh our own
Yes but I love to wear it all the time.
Yes it is a disgrace to the fashion society1 Comment
They both suck - yungstirjoey666
My girl Clinton - Luckys
Clinton - blackflower
Clinton, she sucks, but she's god compared to Trump!
What delusion do you live in? It's not an opinion. Trump is much better than Clinton. - LordDovahkiin
