Mikal

Con

Disclaimer : I am pro gay marriage. Noob sniping this resolution





My adversary is claiming gay marriage is not bad. He is pro this resolution. I am taking Con

What I must to do win - All I must do is show one circumstance in which gay marriage is bad. If I can show one negative effect from gay marriage. I win this debate

Pro

155401didio forfeited this round.
Mikal

Con

Disclaimer : I do not believe any of this, but sniping the restitution.

As I said all i must do is shown one scenario in which gay marriage is bad and I win

Negative effects on children.

Recent studies show that homosexual couples deny the right of a father or mother to a child, and that this can lead to the child suffering negative effects and showing symptoms such as violence. Studies also show they have a higher chance of ending up in prison[1]

Conclusion

The resolution is not upheld

ok first of all i didn't ask why you think being gay is wrong, i asked what is wrong with gay marriage. They don't have to be married to have kids. They dont have to have kids, they have the right to get married it doesn't effect you.
Mikal

Con

My deluded adversary has no idea what a resolution is

"Gay marriage is not bad"

That is a resolution and you affirm this with pro and have no upheld your BOP

Sadly this debate ends with a clear and concise win for me.

Well, I actually have to disagree. didio's topic is "gay marriage is not bad" Providing one negative instance that can result in making gay marriage doesn't make gay marriage bad in general. For instance, the Chevy SSR was considered one of the worst cars ever because of its ugly design , underpowered engine and heavy weight. If the topic was "cars are not bad" does that mean that presenting one terrible car model mean all cars are bad?

The difference might be that I'm not very good at debating.

I do the same thing. I debate like 5 things at once, so I can really only take one serious at a time.

I take debates on about 5 different topics most of the time. If one of them pops up and I oppose the resolution I take it. Seasoned or newb, i I do not discriminate. The only topic that good debaters clash with me on is the death penalty and I have a number 1 vs number 2 battle coming up and I owe another friend in the top 10 a debate.

There are certain topics I will never pass up on taking.

Well, I most definitely can not give you an actual debate because both the Pro and Con would be based off of opinion and not fact. Im curious to see who will actually take this challenge and what the outcome will be. Have a nice day and make gainz ;)
