Overview.


I am open to judging many different styles of debate but that does not mean I am willing to listen to foolishness. If you are reading an argument that is silly, please don’t.

Full disclosure: I am not in a place where I can hear arguments as to why death would be good. These won’t work for me emotionally or academically. Generally, arguments that talk about death/suicide make me uncomfortable at this time. But that doesn’t preclude me from evaluating impacts like war, nukes, or famine etc.

Specifics

I’m a person who prefers promptness on the part of the debaters and will work to eliminate down time during the debates.

In my personal academic work I study literature at the intersection of race, gender, and economic systems. Thus, I am most comfortable on those terms but I can read and pick up things quickly. This is my first tournament on this topic. Please be mindful of that. I do not know the acronyms. I am not familiar with topic short hand.

If you are advocating for policy options or critical approaches to the topic, you better be able to defend why.

i have debated with a plan and not. Both are fine.

With me it’s always better to fully describe your arguments rather than to quickly rush past something. I’ll let you know if you’ve been talking about something too long.

I prefer to hear what you say rather than marvel at how “fast” you think you are. I can follow debates at any speed however clarity is key.

I’ll give you commentary at the end of the round like standard and you can always email me with questions later.
