I’m writing a debate, the topic I chose is “females should not have to pay for “feminine items.”
I have a few reasons why like its not our choice to bleed every month so we shouldn’t have to pay for that. I just need help coming up with some other reasons why or just anything that I could use in my debate. Please and thank you (:

well things dont really work that way. food still costs money. its not our fault that our bodies require it to live.
I disagree with your first reason because even as it is not your choice it is also not the choice of anyone else who might otherwise pay.
But, other reasons for you:
- As a basic necessity, maybe society should pay for basic necessities.
- Let the men pay, men are supposed to pay for everything.
I guess both your reasons do make a lot of sense when I look at it that way. In that case maybe I should pick a new topic? I’m not very good at deriding debates D:
Can you choose any theme to argue for? That one looks like only really creative thinking or persuasive speech could make it seem realistic. It’s almost like saying that females shouldn’t have to bear the burden of being female. Or living beings shouldn’t have to pay the price of all the suffering of this difficult life. I guess maybe I agree. Nobody should have to pay, everything should come free, that would be the best of all possible worlds. We didn’t cause any of this, why should we have to pay for any of it?
Yes it can be anything that I want I want it to be as long as its somewhat debateable or persuasive so I guess this is a good topic because not everyone will agree. I know things like food and water are a necessity and so it makes sense that we pay for that but when this is specified at women why should we pay for something that us females didn’t cause. I feel very bad for any family that has many girl children. But I guess they make lots of money from these sales and the world revolves around money. If money didn’t exist things would probably be chaotic, people would take as much as they wanted and then it would be boring because there would be no pleasure to it, because I know when I buy something I feel pleasurable or proud of my self if it was somethig expensive. Life would get boring I we were just able to take anything we wanted. Oops sorry for getting off topic!
I want to suggest one that I think would be easier.
People should be altruistic and go out of their way to help each other.
This makes sense but it is also debatable because everyone is selfish and they don’t want to have to do anything if they won’t be rewarded for it.
And the reason why people should help each other… I don’t know but there must be a reason, look at this whole help.com with people just randomly helping.
I would probably change that to something basic to everyone which will make it more difficult to argue against. What about toilet paper? Why is it considered a luxury (and, therefore, taxable)? Is there any hygienic alternative? Do we really want people who can’t afford to wipe their butts to go without? There is theft because of this. Toilet paper is stolen from public restrooms constantly. That’s why there are dispensers that guard the paper rolls with lock and key! There is a report on germs in retail shops that give nasty results - a lot of clothing on the racks are contaminated with…ugh!…fecal matter!! How disgusting!! So, yeah, the affordability and availability of toilet paper is even a public health issue.
Ohhh that’s a good idea! And I like your evidence as well (: a little gross but still very true. Well I’m gonna sleep on this and hopefully I can figure out what to do. Thanks (:
In muslim countries you don’t have toilet paper at all, they use water to clean themselves and maybe carry a cloth to wipe after they cleaned themselves. In Dubai in the airport for instance or in Kuwait, you have to pay to use toilet paper. A shower hose is attached to every toilet and that’s what they use instead of toilet paper.
But going back to your original question, if women shouldn’t have to pay for sanitary items, then parents of babies shouldn’t have to pay for diapers either, or old people who can’t control their bowel momevements and have to have adult diapers should not have to pay for that either, or there should be twice or three times the amount of man’s toilet available everywhere because men use two or three times more the toilet than women so it is not fair for men to have the same amount of toilet available then women etc. etc.
