I would like my opponent to start off

I thank my opponent for this debate.


Judging from the title I will set the BOP, as my opponent has failed to do this.

--Pro must prove that people should not have a problem with homophobes--
--I must prove that people should have a problem with homophobes--

__
I will begin with my arguments.

A1. Homophobes have a hatred for a sizable portion of the american population.


According to Source 1, 10-20% (at least) of the US population is homosexual (gay or lesbian.)

Now, this is not even counting closeted homosexuals!

This is around 1/10 to 1/5 of the US population that would be under fire from homophobes. Clearly this would be a major cultural dispute.


I can't think of any more so I will wait for more arguments and rebuttals.

Debate Round No. 1

Pro

being homophobic doesn't necesseraily mean that you hate the Gays to the extent of killing them. It just may mean that they don't like the idea of a man on man and a woman on woman. It doesn't have to mean that homophobes want everyone who is gay/lesbian to die

My opponent has not refuted my arguments. He responds with a non-fact based opinion and no specifically marked rebuttals.

Extend all arguments and vote pro
