Pro

I am gay in virtue of this debate being in favor of my own gayness 100%.
daytonanerd

Con

The 2 definitions of gay are being happy and being Homosexual. Since my opponent has the BOP, and he has proved none of these things, the voters should see this and vote Con.

I can't vote, but I feel like Pro offered sufficient proof as to being gay, since he said "I am gay". Regardless of the definitions raised by Con, the statement "I am gay" and Pro's reference to "my own gayness" proves that Pro is gay since he has offered his testimony as to that effect as a witness with personal knowledge of the facts. Therefore, Pro has stated his case and Con has offered no evidence or arguments to the contrary, I think Pro has won the debate, at least on arguments and sources.

Reasons for voting decision: While not in the debate (so it doesn't count), Pro's performance in other debates seems to prove that he is gay (though that is based on the slanderous definition, rather than the sexuality one).

Reasons for voting decision: Asserting something without proof makes your claim worthless. BOP not fulfilled.
