Ask any questions


I saw your debate as regard to answering any question for sure.I'd like to answer the five questions you posed him. I'd like you to write your questions in capitals.

Less than 3 means defeat (for me).Round 1 is acceptance and posing tho...

Homosexuality is okay!


I believe that homosexuality is okay. It may be odd behavior, but that doesn't mean it's bad or immoral. It is their right to have the same rights as "straight" people.

In rounds 2 and 3, we will both argue why our definition is better. Voting rules: - Reliable sources are not taken into account - Forfeit means loss...
