Should Holocaust Denial be considered hate speech?

Whether or not the Holocaust happened, should it be considered hate speech to deny that it did? How is believing something did not happen synonymous with hate? Who is being hated here? Jewish people? If someone were to doubt whether OJ Simpson murdered Nicole Simpson, would that mean that the person necessarily hated Nicole Simpson? How is simply denying a fact a form of hate speech? At best, you can call these people uninformed, ignorant, etc., but I fail to see how this is automatically an...

First round is for acceptance only. I will start the affirmative in round two. Assume the following: 1. An American employee is fired by an American employer covered by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. 2. The employer fires the employee soley because the employee is transgender.

Insurance Exclusions Against Transgender Persons Should Be Eliminated

I tried to get this debate started a few months ago but, as was pointed out to me by a voter, I didn't get much traction with the topic because I used the term GID (Gender Identity Disorder) and did not reference the term Transgender. Of course, with the new DSM-V the proper term is "Gender Dysphoria" ("GD") To be clear, the resolution applies to transgender persons who have been diagnosed as having GD per the WPATH standards of care and who have met their obligations for treatment, e.g. appr...
