Gingers are regular human being but with different colored hair. What is the big deal, this sistuation is almost like a whole other era of racism. Very immature people. Thanks go out to those who dont bully gingers. My friend is a ginger and because of the relatively nice school that we go to, she doesn't really get noticed because of her hair color, but because of who she is.
Fact: Gingers are one of the most bullied people in the world. There is even such a thing as "kick a ginger" day in Canada.

I accept.

Shared BOP. I will be debating that gingers are not normal human beings.

Considering you did not post any definitions, I will do so. This was the first definition of normal that popped up so we will be using it for this debate.

Normal - conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural. (1)

My argument is quite simple.

Gingers are not normal because they are not usual, are abnormal, are not regular, and do not conform with the standard type of human beings.

According to three sources, only 1-2% of the world population is made up of gingers (2)(3)(4) and that brown haired people are dominant at 38% of the world's population. (5)

In order to be normal gingers must be in the highest percentile of their hair color, but they are not.

Therefore, gingers are not normal human beings.

Thank you! Pleasure debating you.

It is normal to have brown hair because the majority of people have brown hair. In the same way, it is normal to be born with a kidney because the majority of humans are born with a kidney. It is also normal to not have brown hair because the majority of people do not have brown hair. Gingers are normal because they do not have brown hair. Gingers e not normal because they are gingers.
Normal is simply all about the majority. Your logic is flawed for not being able to see that.

In saying that Gingers have to have the highest percentage of hair color is basically saying that only brown haired people are normal. Which in your argument that 38% of people have brown hair means that the other 62% of people who don't have brown hair are not normal. Your argument is flawed to the point that stupidity seems like your only solution to trying to prove a point. I mean no offense, it is just that you have no argument.

Easy to form a debate against (not saying win), options for con I see are as follows...

1. Troll.
2. Semantics of how everyone is a beautiful and unique.
3. Point out actual flaws to them, such as how they sunburn more easily than normal people.

I would take this, but due to the opening remarks it seems really personal to pro.
