TLDR: debate however you would like in front of me. I'll evaluate whatever you give me to the best of my ability.

Tech beats truth in front of me every time. I don't care if the T was frivolous, I'll drop the most generic aff in the world if they lose the T flow.

Speed: 6. If you aren't clear, then it makes my job infinitely harder. If you spread through the standards on T, Theory, and other analytic arguments, I won't feel guilty if it doesn't make it onto the flow. I can only evaluate what I was able to flow.

K: cool

CP: Cool

DA: Cool

FW: Cool

T: Go for it

Performance: Go for it.

Over/underviews: Please

Non Topical affs

I am open to new uses of time, performance, and affs that are not topical. However, I feel it is the burden of the affirmative to provide solid framework telling me to evaluate the round differently than if I were a traditional policymaker.

Topicality I'll be honest here. As aff, I was frequently non topical and as neg I read T all of the time. I am okay with T hacks, and I won't punish an aff outright so long as they can provide ample reason why their aff would be preferrable to the topic. I will default to competing interps on T debates generally.

Spec args I actually thing it's pretty valuable. I would rather see a spec arg than an agent CP.

Nebel T: You can read it, but its a vertical battle to me. Whole res is stupid. I would much rather see infinite affs on the wiki than listen to an infinite amount of PICs. Don't tell me you couldn't read anything against the aff if you're compotent. Force them to defend generics, read a K, go for an abusive CP. I don't really care, but the notion that negs should get infinite access to DA and PIC ground because they aren't feeling like doing prep work doesn't fly for me. You didn't have 15 minutes before the round to prep out your opponent, you had infinite time to prep out conceivable positions.

Debate authors: this is my pet peeve. Debate people are great for advice at camp, they're not gods on the T flow. Cut it out. "Don't use me in round," Steve Knell, 2015

Theory

I diverge from most policy judges in that I actually enjoy theory. However I have some specifics.

1. If you make me vote for disclosure theory, I'll hate you

2. Condo is legit, severance is fine. Agent, process, and inherency cps are are legit theory violations.

Kritiks

I don't really feel like I should have to put a section in here for K's but, here we go. I was a K hack that read Queer Theory/Ableism all of senior year. I believe that the K is a valid argument, and provides great (if not real world value,) intellectual value. I am familiar with queer, fem, and ableism literature as well as biopower. If you choose to read other identity critiques or something that isn't a "generic K," I may call for evidence. I will evaluate arguments I am unfamiliar with to the best of my ability.

Perm

Most CPs are totally able to be permed. I require debaters explain how the permutation is functional first, and evaluate whether or not the perm harms the integrity of the kritik if that becomes relevant. I am happy to grant perms, but if you do not tell me how the perm would function, I will most likely conclude neg.

DA

Honestly, disads are my least favorite arguments. If you want me to vote for it, you're best going for a CP/DA strategy.

Other things about me

  • Kanye, Migos, Uzi, and Yachty quotes will grant extra speaks
  • Drake references are minus points
  • Sass is welcome. Being an asshole is frowned upon.
