Why are gays so evil? I think they probably just want to be evil. If gays are evil then they are not good. Why do we need evil that is not good? We do not need evil gays. So gays are useless and evil. So either they should stop being evil gays or stop being.

1. Introduction

First of all, I'd like to thank my opponent for creating this debate, and wish him/her the best of luck. Thanks! :D

2. Burden of Proof

As my opponent seems to be affirming that gays are, in fact, evil, he/she needs to fulfill the Burden of Proof in order to win the debate.

3. Definitions

gay (noun) - A homosexual, especially a man.

evil (adjective) - morally bad.

4. Rebuttals

"Why are gays so evil?"

That's a great question. In fact, it's essentially the topic of the debate. You should probably use logic and evidence to answer this question if you would like to win.

"I think they probably just want to be evil."

However, you have provided no evidence whatsoever that gays are evil (or want to be). Why do gays want to be evil (what about homosexuality makes one evil)? You must answer this question to win this debate (as you have the Burden of Proof) - to say only that you think something doesn't make it true.

"If gays are evil then they are not good."

Yes. According to my definition, evil means morally bad, and bad is not good. Congratulations.

"Why do we need evil that is not good?"

I assume that you mean 'society' by 'we'. I agree that society doesn't need evil - especially evil that 'is not good'. Congratulations once more.

"We do not need evil gays."

As far as I know, society doesn't need any evil, so yes. Congratulations again.

"So gays are useless and evil."

Where did you deduce this from? Your argument has essentially been an incoherent collection of baseless assertions for which you provide not the slightest shards or shreds of evidence. In order to affirm that gays are either useless are evil, you must provide evidence or a logical proof.

"So either they should stop being evil gays or stop being."

I'm not sure where you derived this conclusion from. Please explain. Once more, you've provided no evidence that gays are evil, so I see no reason why they should stop being evil or stop being.

5. Conclusion

At this point in the debate, all of my opponent's statements have been successfully refuted.Pro must defend his statements or provide new, valid ones (with evidence) in order to win the debate. Thanks, and good luck! :D

Reasons for voting decision: Con's rebuttals went uncontested, so Con wins arguments. Whilst Con's only sources were dictionary references, this debate was largely about semantics, so I'm okay with giving source points because of this. Conduct goes to Con for Pro's round forfeits.

Reasons for voting decision: I don't really like noob sniping, so I'm giving pro conduct. Con was the only one to make a real argument, use sources, so they get those.
