    Default Need help coming up with a topic

    Hi guys, I need to have some help with coming up with a Persuasive Speech for speech class at my school. I was wondering what you guys think I should do some of my ideas are: why we should not have main political parties, why we need net-neutrality,why gay marriage should be legal.
    Im looking for some other ideas and I was hoping you guys could help me come up with a topic by suggesting some topics.

    Net neutrality is a current topic that has a strong Pro-Con component that would be easy to build a persuasive speech around. Your strongest speech will be about a topic that you are genuinely interested in. It is easier to persuade others if you feel passionate about the topic at hand, as long as it's rational! Your interest/ passion will show in your body language, audience engagement and in other ways that will reinforce your message. (referred to as non-verbal communication)

    I would stay away from the political and religious (including gay marriage) areas because they are topics that can evoke a strong response, not always in your favor. You have to know your intended audience (your teacher mainly, and classmates)VERY well before venturing into highly controversial topics.

    MY suggestion? Pick something you can have fun with, and are interested in.

    Since you identify as gay, (sorry that really sounds clinical) topics such as hate crime legislation, the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, and gay couples adopting children in your state are areas you could look at. If you don't want to go that way, look at environmental issues ( is nuclear energy really that bad? or HEY! Cloth diapers may not be the right answer for the environment!) or using genetically modified grains to feed poor countries.

    What are YOU interested in?

    in case you do end up using gay marriage as your topic...

    The 2009 BBC Reith Lectures with Michael Sandel had a very interesting episode that discussed the moral, political, religious and social aspects of the gay marriage debate.
