I Like to Debate

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 572 People

    Basically if I hold knowledge within on a

    subject, I have to get it off my chest eventually. I feel like this is a good trait to have in teachers, but I don't want to teach. I want the world as a whole to know this specific fact that I have been pondering for the past 2 months. This, debating, is how I relieve myself of...

    Chicken Or The Egg?

    Alright, so far this seems like a group of intelligent people. I am fairly new to debating and I will be honest by saying Im not well educated, so my information may be incorrect, but I will accept these maturely. I recently came across a question about whether the chicken or...

    I speak my mind about a topic

    or statement that I feel was falsely put out. Most people have a problem with it, but I say What the hell, might as well. Am I right? I mean why bottle your opinion to make someone else feel better? That's just cowardish in my opinion. If I think you're wrong, I'll say I...

    I've been debating competitively

    since my sophomore year of high school. I'm currently on scholarship debating for my college. I love the activity and I love the people in the community. My partner and I did really well this year, and I can't wait to do well next year too. The activity has done so much good for...

    Power.

    Power is my motive behind everything.  As bad as this may sound, I just like being in control and having power.  I enjoy proving others wrong regardless of what it takes to get there....  I'm not a complete b*tch about it, but I will sometimes go out of the way...

    Depending on the topic, of course. Philosophy is a favourite - I've never studied it, but I have plenty of ideas of my own.

    I actually love it. I'm captain of debate team

    at my school. It's fun to debate random topics and just be given one, because if I don't agree with it, it makes it more challenging, and I like challenge. It also gives the debate less a chance of being biased. But anyways, if you guys have a topic, I'd be happy to debate down...

    Hello Fellow Debaters!

    I love to debate. I am part of our school's debate circle. I feel that I'm myself when I debate with others. And most importantly it helps and trains my self confidence. Yet there are new members. And they are most likely to be very judgmental. So can anyone give me some...

    Only The Strong

    I enjoy a good debate because I care if my beliefs are built on solid logic and as such, I want them challenged in order to see if my opponents are able to recognize faulty reasoning or other chinks in my armor regarding my world views. Debate is what set me on the path to...

    Ok, So If I Willingly Share My Wife With Other Men Is This Cheating?

    I believe if you (the spouse) are willing to share your spouse with another that they are not cheating on you. Cheating is a state of mind---any thoughts?

    I have just had one of the best debates I have

    had in 4 years. Worthy opponent and I just spent a long time discussing something. And at the end of it, don't hate each other. The issue was unresolved. But that is often irrelevant.

    I am one in a select few,

    who will admit to being extremely under educated and yet, I still like to debate and discuss just about any topic. As long as all parties can retain themselves from going ape-**** if someone doesn't understand something fully or whatever, its all fun and games.

    I have strong opinions on things,

    but I tend not to debate them unless I know enough about them. So instead, if I have a differing opinion, I'll present it in the form of questions to probe for more information. This way it is not combative, and allows people to be more open to an idea that conflicts with their...

    Discussion Is the Best Form of Learning

    I really like to debate. To discuss with someone about something either of us holds dear, or to use it as a learning opportunity if I really don't understand the allure of a certain position. Value debate is fun as long as you don't get bogged down in real world examples...
