I debated in high school in LD for 4 years at the local, state, and national circuit, and 2 years in PF. I did policy debate at UT Dallas.

I'm fine with speed just please be clear.

LD:

I believe you need some sort of framework/way for me to evaluate the round. Don't assume that because I do policy that I default to a consequentialist/magnitude impacts. If you want me to evaluate that, you need to have a value/criterion that says that I should evaluate arguments on the scale of consequentialism. I ran different philosophical frameworks when I did LD and enjoy listening to different ones and the way you justify your position through it. You may be able to convince me that disclosure is good in LD. PLEASE STOP USING "WE"

Policy:

I'm going to be honest when I say I'm a predisposed to preferring topical aff positions in policy because I have mostly preferred/debated topical policy debates. That is not to say that I won't vote on them, just that I am not the best judge to evaluate K v. K debates, and K Affs v. Framework debates. However, I do have experience running/understanding those arguments because my partner and I ran a nontopical aff for half a semester, so don't stop running those arguments, just make it easier for me to understand the method by which I should evaluate the round. Oddly enough, I'm fine with evaluating Topical Aff v. K debates, and enjoy seeing good ones. I think you need to win a link (by link, I mean a link, not a risk of a link, I mean a LINK) in order for me to vote on any K/DA. Disclosure is good.

General:

- Debate is a game, I believe that you shouldn't bring your identity or feelings into it.

- The point of debate is to be persuasive, so I think that as long as you persuade me on something, and have some cards (even if they're untrue) then I'll vote for you. I love people that can answer arguments using a few logical responses. Quality over quantity.

- I will vote on everything in round if it's explained well and you win the argument. Caveat to that is that I don't care about out of round impacts or voting for you because you're discriminated against

- Debate warrants, not tags. Name the argument not the author. I don't know your case as well as you do to remember your authors name

- Policy: presumption flows neg because if you can't prove that the plan is a good thing from the status quo, then there is no reason to vote for you. LD: I can be convinced either way, but it's VERY unlikely for me to vote for presumption in LD on either aff or neg

- DAs need to have Uniqueness, a Link, Internal Link, and an impact. K's need to have a Link, Impact, and Alt (though it doesn't always need it, you need to tell me it functions as a linear DA). CPs need to have a counterplan text and a net benefit.

- Condo is basically Dispo because you still need to answer offensive arguments on off cases in order to kick them. You can still win condo in front of me though, I've gone for it a bit and won off it, so as long as there's clear abuse/lack of response, go for it.

- I don't really care about T/Theory unless there's a clear violation that was dropped with good extensions or a long ass shell in LD

- Also LOL @ you if you try to post round me, because idgaf, and my decision isn't fucking changing :)

- My RFDs are generally blunt, so don't get offended, I'm only trying to make you a better debater

- I'll give you extra points for being funny, but don't be rude

- If you have any questions: message me on Facebook, Instagram, or email me at aishabawany98@gmail.com
