Hello,

I am relatively new to Debate.Org. I hope to have a nice time here, but mainly I am here to improve my debate skills. I really prefer a less formal debate as I'm 13 years old and like a typical teenager I'd rather not do research unless I have to. I look to engage in some active controversial conversation while at the same type maintaining a happy environment. I really have nothing else to say, and at the same time some of the previous sentences was just there to adequately fill an introduction paragraph.

Tl;DR: Hello

Thanks. I've been following Mikal's debates as a lurker. He is well known here, I presume.

Yes, but not as well known as me.

Lol, just kidding, yes he's very well known on here.

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

Meh, please not yet. I have a tendency to not proofread so I often have poor word choices and run on sentences. But hopefully I'm good enough for a 13 yo lol

That's why I gravitate toward philosophical debates. That way, I can just write off the top of my head and not have to look up a bunch of sources. I'm lazy that way.

There are 15 year olds on this sight who can beat me, so I doubt the "for a 13 year old" qualification is really necessary.

I know age does not matter (to a certain degree), I just wanted to give a humble impression as a newcomer.

Sure, but I have 4 (i think) debates going on already and I have Full Orchestra, a Speech Tournament, and a ton of grades to catch up. I also don't feel strongly on any issues right now so it would be awkward for us to come up with a topic that I don't particularly care about and for me to accept. It would be a half-hearted attempt at most (for me) even if you decide to go full vigor. But sure, why not.

Lol I have. I think 3 debates going, and I'm going to have 4 more running within the next few days. Perfect!

Prostitution should be legalized.

God probably is not real.

Gay marriage should be legalized.

Any of these...?

Not really... I don't want my browser history filled with prostitution statistics (parents) and I see the Con side as the losing one in the second one. The third one has been debated over and over and if the anti-legalization-gay adults can't think of anything then I doubt I could either. At best I could just parrot their points. (Currently gay-advocates are winning right?)

And if you are a flirter, Dee Ann is a USERname I got from my WiFi router (DN5TP)

Hello,

Correct.

I hope to have a nice time here, but mainly I am here to improve my debate skills. I really prefer a less formal debate as I'm 13 years old and like a typical teenager I'd rather not do research unless I have to.

So, debates like this? http://www.debate.org...

I look to engage in some active controversial conversation

Go to the politics, religion, philosophy and society forums. You'll literally see nuclear warfare.

while at the same type maintaining a happy environment.

Well, from what I can tell it seems like you've come at the right time.

I really have nothing else to say, and at the same time some of the previous sentences were just there to adequately fill an introduction paragraph.

I didn't even do one. Took me a while to work my way up. I guess you could say I started from the bottom, and now I'm here.

Tl;DR: Hello, I'm relatively committed to debate.

I'm also the Troll Goddess of Reason. Sacrifices are appreciated but not necessary.

So much this lol. But when I do have to use sources I try to go all out. Like at least 10.
