It is the end of the world... something bad is going to happen and the world's governments plan for it by creating bunkers where a select few will live on and survive.

Given that one of the roles of these people will be to rebuild society, is it ok for gays/lesbians to be discriminated against when selecting those who go into the bunkers on the grounds that they won't contribute directly to rebuilding the population?

Thank you for a nice debate topic.

You have selected CON, so you think that they should not be allowed into survival shelters. I selected pro, and I think that they should.
Before I can put together a successful rebuttal to your arguments, you must do these:

1) Why they shouldn't be allowed
2) Have MULTIPLE arguments that gays should not be allowed, not just the repopulating one
3) Why gays are lesser than the average saved human

Thanks, I look forward to a good debate!

I can't post anything here, since my opponent still holds the burden of proof.

Well, I guess I'll post an argument anyway.

You state that the main reason gays should be left out is because they can't reproduce. They can do other things, though. Like they could farm, gather food, build things while everyone else is off repopulating.

Well, another full forfeit. Ah well.

@MyDinosaurHands Pro wasn't wrong. While there are two words that are both negative in the resolution they are unrelated and therefore do not cancel each other out. Like Input said, the resolution is unclear. A resolution should be a statement not a question.

Pro was wrong. Con was against the idea that gays/lesbians should not be allowed in. That's a double negative, which meant con wanted to let them in.

Input If that is the case then I accept the challenge. I will argue they should be permitted access.

I would accept the challenge, if I knew that the challenge were a statement & not in question form.
I believe riscos/Con is stating that:
In the end of the world situation, homosexuals would not be allowed in bunkers to be saved for a type of New Earth since they will not to pro-generate a race/homo-sapiens/humankind for the future.
Is that interpretation correct?
You know, biblically, Noah & the Ark situation had a similar occurrence.

If you think they shouldn't be allowed, then I will argue that they should.

Sorry, what is your view? Should or shouldn't they be allowed in shelters?
