  1. Wanted you to see the many diverse topics I had come across for my persuasive paper.
    Once I found a truly interesting one…the ideas just flowed. No more writers block, indesicion…
    YEAH, you read that right…smartass…luv u.

    • Hahaha… that’s what makes them funny. Like it or not girls get more offended than guys… so speeches that are ‘anti-female’ are just plain more enjoyable because it’s funny when some one gets all defensive. Sorry but it’s kinda true haha.
      But in saying that… I am a fellow girl… but if you look at the bigger picture… half of those topics are true… sorry hahah

      • I was valedictorian, can speak 3 languages, and have a degree in Physics. And I’m a woman. with blonde hair! what? amazing.
        you’re a freaking idiot.

  2. hi…i wanted to ask……is there any topics that i can talk about in college? like topics that talks about what a college student should do ( time management when to study and when to play, how to control our cash, etc ) . i am suppose to give a talk…..but i was hopping for topics that have the same reign but different ….something exciting and will definitely catch the audiences attention. thank you. I’m hoping that you will reply as soon as possible on this webpage……because my e-mail is inactive …..thank you.


  4. Are you serious? These are some of the most offensive topics.
    Spousal abuse LOL
    Transphobia, halirous topic
    Women aren;t funny or smart or even people. Hahah

  5. so I guess im stupid because I have blonde hair… …………my speech is tomorrow and I need NON offensive ones and I need good ones not…”Blondes are STUPID” I have lots of blonde people In my school and im am NOT going to upset them by writing a speech about that……BUT some of them are pretty funny like don’t let your mom go on facebook LOL …..Adult children living at home can be a pain HAHA sooooo true but there is a ton more but just a heads up they are HALARIOUS

  6. I think that these topics are funny I mean some of them may be extreme but that doesn’t mean everyone should hat this website but we all have our own opinion

  7. I think some of these topics are so funny, I am a 50yrs old, going back to college. I wanted to do a funny persuasive speech. Women are easily offended, don’t take the post down. If you can’t laugh at things in life that are meant to be a joke or funny, then honestly your going to miserable. Lighten up. I found a few great topics to my speech on. Thanks for taking the time to put ideas out there.

    • It’s truw. But there should also be topics making fun of men. We can laugh at each other. If only one gender keeps being picked on, it shows lack of creativity and inability to think out of the box to make fun of the other gender. Let’s mix it up abit and make fun of each other and not just women. -Not offended, just spreading awareness. There’s more we can do.

  8. Thank you SO much persuasivespeechideas.org! Before this post, I didnt have a single funny bone in my body. Thanks to you, now I can spout ignorance to my friends and family without being judged because of it’s pure hilarity!
