Pooping in public is bad form. When someone poops their pants, or drops their drawers in the middle of a crowd and pokes the turtle head, it is not socially acceptable behavior.

Who dares to oppose this position?

Harumph! Harumph, I say!

Just to clarify, are you for or against public bathrooms? You have chosen the 'Pro' position, which would indicate that you are for public bathrooms. However, you have then gone on to say that "pooping in public is bad form". You seem to be arguing against your own stance. Can you please clarify your exact stance on this issue.

Cheers, Leethal

I am in favor of people who are against pooping in public; Ergo, I am against PDP, or public displays of poop. If public bathrooms conceal said pooping from view, than I am in favor of such stalls. However, I am STRONGLY opposed to the sights, sounds, and smells of all things poopy.

I am, however, in favor of Richard Pryor. Well done, sir!

You said in your second round that you are "against PDP, or public displays of poop. If public bathrooms conceal said pooping from view, than I am in favor of such stalls." This is a false dichotomy. I don't believe that if public bathrooms were completely removed from society, then we would be overrun by raw sewage in our streets. I'm not sure in which part of D.C. you live, but I can't imagine that the 'PDP' problem is particularly bad there. There are several reasons why you don't see alot of 'PDP' in this day and age, and none of them have to do with the fact that public toilets are available. The reasons why I personally don't 'go' in the middle of the streets range from health issues and the smell, to social respectability and the fact that, well, it's disgusting. If all public toilets were banned tomorrow, I'd either go home for my business, or hold it in. And so would everyone else.

You have said that you are "STRONGLY opposed to the sights, sounds, and smells of all things poopy." I can imagine that alot of people are, although maybe not as STRONGLY as yourself. And yet you are in favour of what are essentially giant rooms made specifically for the public display of the "sights, sounds and smells of all things poopy." In fact, the only place I EVER encounter these sights, sounds and smells you are so fervently against, is in the public bathrooms you are so fervently for. Once again, it appears as though you are arguing against your own stance.

If you are so against "public displays of poop", then why did you post this debate on a public forum? Ba-zing!

leethal! You're...NOT DUMB! Excellent work, my friend! When debating such a fine specimen of stupidity, one can be tempted to, how you say, stoop to their level? But you haven't! Good work.

Hoosierpapi,

why are you so mean?
why are you just so rude in general to everyone?
your name has popped up a lot while i'm on this site,
and you always manage to say something very rude to these innocent people!
why can't we all just love each other? seriously, what will your mean comments do for this world?
people have had debates about your rudeness ok? your getting attention.

and might i just throw this in your face, you said "somethign" instead of something.
aaaahhhhhh the world's going to end!!!
lets point it out to everyone on the site in attempt to embarass you!!!!!!!!!!!

My friend, I hardly tried to suck up to you. Is that the best you can do to try to berate my position? I do in fact love Pryor. Who doesn't? It was a neutral observation. If you want to construe it as sucking up to you to fit some agenda you may have, then by all means, go for it. Reality suggests somethign different, however.

Touche. Doesn't change a whole lot about the fact that your sense of humour leaves much to be desired, and that you clearly tried to suck up to me in the debate by praising Richard. Does it?

LMAO leethal...you claim I spoke in a "supid, unarticulate way?"

ROFL. If you are going to insult someone's grammar and/or ability to articulate, be sure you speak in an acceptably articulate manner yourself, you idiot.

The word is INARTICULATE.

ROFLMAO.

I prove my point about leethal's moronic status.

pro, your first round is non-nonsensical. the topic is public bathrooms, not pooping your pants.
pro, your stance seems to be against poopin in public, yet your job is to advocate said action (in public bathrooms, of course)
con, good job pointing out pros logical fallacy
pro, never forfeit a round

because pro was barely coherent, and never actually presented any points. so con basically wins by default

Haha. I knew exactly what you were trying to say, but as you said it in such a stupid, unarticulate way, I was easily able to turn your own argument back on you. That's why i won the debate, you see? What I actually meant in my last round post was that your argument itself was 'poop', and so why would you post such a poopy argument on a public site, if you are so vehemently against public poop. I see your sense of humour is about as good as your debating skills.

P.S. I don't care if you are in favour of Richard Pryor. That was a pathetic attempt at sucking up to me. Nice try.

leethal is a friggin mron. I'll try once more to explain it to him. slowly.

I am against public poop. I am in favor, however, of public bathrooms that are used to direct said public poop into proper waste facilities so that the poop is not released on public streets, in parks, on doorsteps, and in leetha's momma's hair. well, maybe the last one is acceptable.

Now, leethal, what does discussing this in a public forum have to do with anhything? You are logically tryign to argue that I contradicted myself by arguing that I am against public displays of poop in a public forum? LMAO. That doesn't even make sense. jackass. Nice try, though. A + B = TYUQ in your mind. Not suprising whatsoever.

Bless hidden poop! Amen!
