About Me:DDO since early 2015; this site has significantly changed my life. Disclaimer: My views on various issues, ranging from feminism to economics, have significantly changed since I joined. In fact, I held some views that I now consider indefensible. Many of the forum posts I made, and debates I participated in, are now in no way representative of my real views.
Activities:Mostly school-related activities, often formal debate, sometimes DDO. I've started playing online chess and listening to music for leisure.
Beliefs:I'm a modern liberal and a feminist. I believe in representative democracy under the framework of a constitution, with emphasis on protection for minorities. I also support a strong, independent central banking system, environmental protection, and comprehensive animal welfare legislation.
Books:Sapiens, What Happened, Understanding Power, Manufacturing Consent, Collapse, Animal Liberation, Practical Ethics, The Extended Phenotype, David and Goliath, The Point of View of the Universe, Sophie's World, Feminism Is For Everybody, The Story of Philosophy
Music:Snow Patrol, Paramore, Radical Face, Ben Howard, Radiohead, Mazzy Star, Civil Twilight, Yanni, Rickie Lee Jones, Pink Floyd, Alanis Morissette, Sufjan Stevens, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Linkin Park, Chvrches, Massive Attack, Ryan Adams, Jeff Buckley, The Black Ryder, The Rolling Stones

At last, we're doing this. You're probably one of the only people who would give me a good debate on this. I was thinking of setting a metadebate case... but I couldn't figure out what metadebate case would be clear to DDO judges, so that will have to wait. Context for the resolution: you are the world"s only sentient balloon. Someone had a birthday party for which they needed balloons, so they inflated you and suddenly you find yourself to be sentient. You can control whether you float upwar...
