So. You won last debate against me because I had to leave for a convention on debating in Washington D.C. You also won because you voted for yourself blatantly and obnoxiously.

I challenge you to a debate on whether or not homosexuality has a negative impact on society. Slightly different prop, yet still centered on this issue.

Accept..?

Firstly, I would like to point out that me voting for myself was not unjustified as I was completely entitled to it for all votes were actually supposed to go to me because you forfeited, it doesn't matter what your excuse is. Therefore, not completely giving me seven points and only six was actually generous on my part and you should be thanking me instead of calling me obnoxious. However, that's another story for another day and I don't have the time to care about a debate I already won.

My opponent has started a debate on which they will stand on an affirmative stance that Homosexuality does not harm society. I will be debating on the negative stance, therefore I will be arguing that Homosexuality does harm society. As my opponent is the Instigator, they carry the Burden of Proof, so I will await their arguments in order to refute them.

Homosexuality doesn't harm anybody. I don't see why gay marriage can't be legal. Let the religious institutions decide.

Homosexuality itself is not killing anybody, however, it is my personal believe that GAY MARRIAGE, should not be legal. Please notice the difference. Also, please stop showing poor conduct.

If it's not harmful, why should it not be legal? Hahahaha!!!!

I do not truely believe this, I was having a debate with this person before about homosexuality but not necessarily the same topic. I was arguing that gay marriage shouldn't be legalized, I wasn't saying that homsexuality was harmful to anybody. However, my opponent seemed like she really wanted to take this debate due her loss in the last one so I took it. I have a couple arguments I could use but nothing that I'm sure I could win a debate on. I would like to debate you on some topic but I don't know if this is a good one.

No, but I will debate you on this topic. You will bear the burden of proof to show that homosexuality is harmful to society, since your views are not shared by the law of the land. I am ready when you are, and I would like to point out that you are a bigot if you truly believe that.

if someone would like to debate me on this topic I wouldn't mind. Also, if you want me to create my own arguments for this debate I can do so, my opponent was responsible for providing the burden of proof, but she didn't post any arguments so I had nothing to say. Is there any way for the creator of the debate to delete this?
