That the CIA should rig elections in post Arab-Spring countries to ensure the moderates win

Challenger is Affirming. "Rig" can mean a number of things and I am happy to let the challenger define it within the clear intent of the topic. This is my first debate here, and I'm more used to Australs and WUDC style debating than LD, but hopefully my arguments will be clear anyway....

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

If I were to say a something offensive and then forfeit the last three rounds, I would lose. By accepting this debate, my opponent agrees that in this case, the word "lose" means to have less points at the end of the voting period. This way, whoever my opponent can not immediately vote for me, making it a win on my profile, then change their vote later, making them win. The time to argue is one day so it move move quickly as I will be forfeiting the last three rounds of this....

Before I begin, I would to clarify the purpose of this debate. This is not a debate about whether or not schools should be teaching sex education.

My reasons for this position are as follows: 1. Most abstinence-only curricula contain errors and distortions of fact, and therefore contradict the purpose of educatio...
