I graduated from OU (Spring 2015). Now I'm an assistant coach at the University of Rochester. Wow, my 3rd year of coaching. Neat. I read a decent amount of critical race theory and have a decent sense of theory from wypippo, but like any judge, don't assume I know everything.

The less I say the better this will be because the debate is not about what I want it to be, it's what y'all want to make it. 

While I'm down for most things, don't say shit like "racism good" 

I believe in consent when it comes to filming rounds.

The flow isn't the word of God, but I do flow, and I ain't that bad at it, but it's just a tool for me to understand what's going on. 

A few arguments I will never vote on if they are the only arguments you sit with:

Kritiks shouldn't be in debate

"Performance" shouldn't be in debate

If this is all your 2AC/1NC has to say, you have lost. I will not flow the sections where you have this argument. I think it's fascist and I think it's fundamentally unfair to debaters that think straight-up policy debate is dumb cuz they don't benefit from politics or capitalism. It doesn't take a card to answer an argument after you really listened to what someone is saying. Stop avoiding debate. I think that folks who encourage these types of arguments are fascists who will ultimately hurt this activity because they don't want to encourage y'all to learn. I've seen this type of behavior in British Parliamentary debate and I don't want it to spread further in Policy debate because I think on a fundamental level that debate is about exchanging ideas and excluding kritikal and performative arguments that people worked on and got excited to share with y'all and excluding folks because you're scared to face new arguments honestly infuriates me. This is true for all levels, whether novice, varsity, high school, middle school or college.

Also, I strongly suggest y'all check out Keiko Takemiya's To Terra. It's really good.

 If I understood html, you bet I'd put a bunch of silly anime pictures down here.
