Respect people's pronouns. Similarly - do not be racist, sexist, transphobic, etc.
I competed on the Policy/LD national circuit for most of my time in high school. I'm currently reading primarily semiocap and disability arguments in college, but I'm down to listen to anything.
Yes, I will vote for framework. I went for it a bunch my senior year.
K - be interesting!! a lack of enthusiasm or obvious disregard for the theory you are reading from is always really upsetting. I prefer if you have links to the plan action, but don't let that deter you from doing what you do best. Using the same language the other team uses to make link arguments is crucial in these debates.
*Unless told otherwise, I tend to decide these debates by asking the question of what impacts a ballot for either team would solve and filtering other arguments through that.
DA's and CP's - The more specific, the better. Well researched pics and advantage counter-plans are some of the best debates. Im open to cheaty counterplans, just be good at the theory debate.
T - I like these debates. I think about it similarly to a cp/da debate. Win that the da's to their model of debate, outweighs the benefit. I'll evaluate these debates by first resolving the competing interpretations/reasonability debate.
Unwarranted arguments even if dropped, are still not arguments. Tech>Truth but I'll likely be tired and if the debate is irresolvable, i'm more likely to do work for the team making more logical arguments.
I'm very susceptible to good humor and will probably give you high speaks if you make laugh.
I don't default judge kick - but can be convinced either way.
1nc contradictions are usually okay, double turns are not.
The side advocating for less change gets presumption.
