Homosexuality is not a decision, it is natural
Debate Rounds (5)
The topic of this debate will be: "Homosexuality is not a decision, it is natural". The pro will be arguing that homosexuality is not a decision, and that it is natural. The con will be arguging that homosexuality is not natural, and optionally argue that it is a decision(However this leads on if it is not natural).
Decision: "the act or process of deciding; determination, as of aquestion or doubt, by making a judgement" 
Natural: "existing in or formed by nature ( opposed to artificial): anatural bridge." 
In this debate, we will be referring to natural as something that is formed by nature. Making a decision does not constitute being formed by nature.
Round 1: This round will be used for acceptance of the debate and/or for any definitions either side would like to make prior to their arguments.
Round 2: In this round, both sides will state their arguments. Neither side will respond to each others arguments directly.
Round 3 and 4: In this round, both sides will respond to/rebutt their opponents arguments. No additional arguments may be made during this round, only response to pre-existing arguments.
Round 5: In this round, both the pro and con will conclude their arguments. No additional arguments may be made.
Burden of Proof: The burden of proof is on both the pro and the con. Pro must prove that homosexuality is natural and is not a decision, whereas Con must prove that homosexuality is unnatural, and optionally that it is a decision(However this follows if it is unnatural).
Respect: Both the pro and con must be respectful to each other, and must refrain from any insulting, discriminating or harmful remarks that are not directly relevant to the debate.
Evidence: Provision of evidence will be required for any kind of statistical/scientific finding. All evidence mentioned or used during the debate must be cited or else the opposition will not be required to respond to the particular argument in which the evidence is used.
Listing of Arguments: It is required that when making an argument, that it be labeled and optionally numbered. If an argument made by either the pro or con is not able to be clearly referenced, misinterpretation will be the fault of the person who made the argument. In other words, number/name your arguments so clarity can be ensured.
I'm very sorry I messed up your debate like this. Truly!
