Controversial Topics for Essays and Speeches

Controversial Topics for Essays and Speeches

When professors leave the choice of essay or speech topic on you, there’s a myriad of options to choose from. Controversial topics are not for everyone, but if handled well can really boost your grade in any given class. Controversial topics have been covered before to some degree by our authors, among them:

But if you’re looking to write about a controversial topic that hasn’t been done yet you came to the right place. In this article we’ll be going over very controversial topics that have been deemed ‘taboo’ by society and the media at large. We’ll also provide you with tips on how best to go about writing an essay or giving a speech on any of these twelve topics; while still making sure they don’t slip into the realm of ‘offensive.’

Controversial topic number one: Abortion. Controversy exists on both sides of the fence when it comes to the abortion debate. Pro-lifers will say that it is murder and pro-choices will claim that women have the right to choose what happens with their bodies. If you are planning on writing an essay or giving a speech in favor of abortion, then use this controversial topic as your subject matter… but be prepared for some flak for taking such a stance. Controversial topics don’t always have to take place in the political arena; they can also be about social issues like homosexual marriage or abortion. Controversial topics shouldn’t be avoided because they controversial (but also shouldn’t be overused). Controversial topics often win more points on standardized tests, especially the AP exams. Controversial topics are also great as a means of getting your professor’s attention because debating such issues in class can be fun and allow you to debate both sides (in favor of and against the controversial topic), only further proving your worth as a student.

Controversial Topic number two: Religion. Controversy exists on both sides of this fence as well; those who practice religion and those who do not. When writing an essay or giving a speech about any one of the many different religions, remember that it is important to be balanced between what you say in order to not alienate people from either side of this controversy. Controversies surrounding religion can be many things, but one of the most obvious is the historical controversies surrounding religion. Controversial topics about religion can also cover modern day issues like homosexuality and abortion among different religions. Controversial topics that deal with any one modern day issue often go over more smoothly than those who do not because more people are informed about these controversial issues.

Controversial topic number three: The death penalty. Controversy exists on both sides of this fence as well, those who are for it and those who are against it. If you are writing an essay or giving a speech in favor of the death penalty than be prepared to have some flak about taking such a stance because more often than not people are against the death penalty. Controversial topics that deal with one versus another typically do better in more conservative communities where people favor the death penalty over alternative punishments for violent crimes.

Controversial topic number four: Gay marriage has been covered by our authors before but it is still a topic of controversy. Controversy exists on both sides, those who are for gay marriage and those who are against it. Controversial topics that deal with one versus another typically do better in more conservative communities where people favor traditional values over additional rights for homosexuals. Controversial topic number four: Gay marriage has been covered by our authors before but it is still a topic of controversy…

Controversial Topic number five: Marijuana Controversy exists on both sides, those who smoke it and support the legalization of marijuana and those who do not. Controversial topics dealing with one versus another typically do better in more liberal communities where people favor legalizing drugs like marijuana to make them less accessible to teenagers. Controversial topic number six: Marijuana Controversy exists on both sides of this fence as well; those who smoke it and support the legalization…

Controversial topic number six: Technology Controversy exists on both sides of this fence, those in favor of it and those in opposition to it. Controversial topics about technology can also cover who should have access to technology and whether or not information technology is good for society as a whole. Controversial topic number seven: Technology Controversy exists on both sides of this fence because some people are in favor…

Controversial topic number seven: Education Controversy exists on both sides, those for education reform and those against reform. Controversial topics dealing with one versus another typically do better in more liberal communities where people favor making the American educational system more like their own country’s educational system which is often seen as better than the American system. Controversial topic number eight Education Controversy exists on both sides of this fence because some people are for reform while others are against it.

Controversial topic number eight: The legalization of drugs Controversy exists on both sides, those who sell illegal drugs and want them legalized so they can make more money and those who believe in the War on Drugs to keep drugs illegal so people don’t get addicted to them. Controversial topics dealing with one versus another typically do better in more liberal communities where people favor legalizing drugs like marijuana to make them less accessible to teenagers.

Controversial topic number nine: Animal testing Controversy exists on both sides, those who are pro-animal rights and those who think animal experimentation is necessary. Controversial topics dealing with one versus another typically do better in more conservative communities where people favor traditional values over additional rights for other sentient beings. Controversial topic number ten: Animal Testing Controversy exists on both sides of this fence as well; those who are pro-animal rights and those who think animal experimentation is necessary

Controversial topic number ten: The legalization of same sex marriage Controversy exists on both sides, those who support the traditional definition of marriage and those who believe in legalizing gay marriage Controversial topics dealing with one versus another typically do better in more conservative communities where people favor maintaining traditions over expanding rights to other groups.

Controversial topic number eleven: Contraception Controversy exists on both sides of this fence as well; pro-life and pro-choice groups. Controversial topics that deal with one versus another typically do better.

Controversial topic number twelve: Pornography Controversy exists on both sides, those who think pornography is harmful for its viewers and the ones who think it’s just a normal part of society Controversial topics dealing with one versus another typically do better in conservative communities where people favor traditional values

Controversial topic number thirteen: A woman’s right to choose Controversy exists on both sides, pro-life and pro-choice Controversial topics dealing with one versus another typically do better in more liberal communities where people want a woman’s choice to be respected Controversial subject number nineteen: A Woman’s Right to Choose Controversy exists on both sides of this fence as well, the pro-life and pro-choice groups

Controversy also exists on both sides, those who support gun control laws and those who think guns should not be availed to civilians.
