The first round will be acceptance, and each participant will state his or her primary argument.
The second round will be elaboration/full explanation of each participant's argument. This round will require each participant to put forth a substantial amount of evidence and provide as many sources as necessary.
The third round will be strictly rebuttal.
The fourth and final round will be strictly counter-rebuttal.

To my opponent: I thank you for accepting this challenge and wish you the best of luck.

My primary argument:
A person's sexuality is not an inherited trait or determined at birth. Rather, sexual orientation is fluid and can be determined or changed by post-birth experiences, circumstances, and decisions. In this sense, a sexual preference (for example, homosexuality) is a choice. Recent arguments stating that a person is "born with" a sexual preference fail to realize this key point, making them unsubstantial/incomplete. Furthermore, these arguments lack the proper amount of evidence (for example, discovery of a gene for sexuality) to be considered viable (1).

I accept this debate.

I will be arguing sexuality determination at birth front the scientific evidence that genetics and processes in the womb determine sexuality and the nature of sexual orientation. Also the self-report of gays will be included.
