Pro

i just need some arguments for for and against for an assignment, please help me!
Zarroette

Con

I'll assume the first round if for acceptance. Pro has the burden of proof to affirm that gender testing should be compulsory in the Olympics.

I await Pro's opening round arguments.

Con

My opponent has failed to provide arguments to fulfil her burden of proof.

Gender pertains to masculine and/or feminine features: gender is a social construct [1] [2]. My question to the audience is this: to what purpose does testing for gender serve? My opponent thus far has provided no arguments as to why gender should be tested, let alone be compulsory.

Again, I await Pro's round arguments.

I only said that I BET that CON will say so. I don't personally believe this myself. I never actually said anything negative about the way you do schoolwork. Also I find it very rude that you would curse at me on first glance.

well no because if i plagiarise i fail and i actually do my work properly, if i get some ideas from these arguments i can then go on to read books and articles to help me. I've already contacted the olympic committee to get some opinions and i contacted my teacher and he said that it is okay, so f off please and thankyou.

I bet Con's just going to say that Pro should lose conduct because she is using other people's ideas, thus plagiarizing

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Con. Pro forfeited multiple rounds. S&G - Con. In the one round that Pro did post in, there was a lack of proper capitalization. I saw no such errors from Con. Arguments - Con. Pro failed to present any arguments whatsoever to affirm her position. Since Con was left standing unchallenged, and Pro failed to maintain the BOP, Con clearly wins arguments. Sources - Con. Pro failed to utilize sources in this debate whereas Con did. This is a rare 7-point win for Con.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro ff many times, and made no arguments, so both conduct and arguments to Con. Only Con had sources.
