I"d like to open up with a quote from Scott McNealy, who, quite elegantly, summed up the entire Negative philosophy in six words. *Clear Throat* "Privacy is dead, get over it." (http://moreintelligentlife.com/blog/julia-belluz/privacy-dead%E2%80%94get-over-it) I know, shocking right? But Privacy wasn"t taken away from us by the Government or anything, as Charles Nevin says, "This is an age which happily invades its own privacy" (http://moreintelligentlife.com/blog/julia-belluz/privacy-dead%E2%8...

This debate adresses accepting/condoning homosexuality.I have taken the Pro stance against the question, asserting that homosexuality should be welcomed and accepted by society.

I am looking to have a heated, but civil debate with someone vehemently against homosexuality. Since this debate is somewhat eccentr...

The resolution of this debate is:'Prostitution should be legalised by the government, in a similar manner to legalisation in Germany (1) and the Netherlands (2).'I will be CON on this issue, whilst my opponent will be PRO. Since legalising prostitution is a move against the status quo, Pro has the burden of proof to demonstrate that the benefits of legalising prostitution will outweigh the negatives. I will be making my own arguments against legalising prost...

Rules1. BoP (Burden of Proof) is shared.2. Religion can NOT be a factor in either one of our arguments. That will quickly twist the topic at hand.3. Minor trolling IS allowed. However, if it goes on consistently, it will result in a loss of conduct and convincing arguments.4. First round is ONL...

You can't justifiably forfeit someone's argument(s) for accepting a debate without permission.

TheJuniorVarsityNovice

Thesis: I honestly believe this. This will basically be a theory argument about how rounds should, or I guess, should not work. I will argue that based on the reasons which validate our authority to make rules about match structure, we cannot justifiably penalize someone f...
