  • As pro stated: 
Whatever topic you choose of course, it'll fit whichever side it falls on for you in tandem with the position preset .
  • Meaning that for the topic I choose, I shall be pro and Mall shall be con. However, all the resolution entails is that to win, I must choose a topic alone. Consequently, all voters need to do is vote for pro based on the proposition of any topic at all. 
z. Topic
  • The topic I choose is "THBT rape should be illegal in the United States." 
  • In extension: I shall take the pro position, and Mall shall take the con position. 
  • Definitions: Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration carried out against a person without that person's consent.
  • To make it fair for con, I will allow him to make his argument so we each have 1 round for argumentation. 

Round 2

Rape should not be illegal in the United States.

Now nobody has gone over what " should" means in this debate so I'll be the first to do the honors and I thank you kindly for your hospitality.

Following that which is the cause or purpose connects the two.

For example, my inhaling these fatal toxic fumes , I should be dead. The effect following the cause logical follows and necessitates.

Rape should be legal in the United States. Now the United States has a government called the United States government or affectionately "Uncle Sam", ok.

This government has democracy to vote in elected officials to orchestrate the legality process. This government has democracy which in turn via those elected parties or directly through petition, vote in on laws.

There's a whole legislature, congress to pass or veto laws.

Whatever laws that are passed by the United States government should in fact be legal.

That's just simply what it would mean.

Something shouldn't be illegal and that thing is legally passed. It doesn't compute. These are opposite.

The laws put in effect via congressional, legislative, political arenas, that process ,the cause should be legally in effect as that what it means to put them in effect.

A vote, a pass on a rape law should be legalized because it would of meant the government has passed it.

Some honorable mentions for alternative arguments or points but are more splitting hairs are below.

Should the act of rape be legal?

Yes, in our dreams or for a more appropriate term " nightmares ".

Should not be illegal, rape that is where it doesn't exist.

I could make a case for what's called a "rape " scene in film and how real it has to look to still within the law .

The dream scenario, somebody can make a case about consciousness and experience being all there is necessary to constitute the act but be within the law.

But for the most basic simpler route, I'll stick with this main point.

Any law passed, rape, abortion, slavery, murder by the capital humanely and tenderly known as capital punishment should be legal because something happened called the "passing of that law", that's all folks.

  • Rape should be illegal because it entails the use of force against individuals who did not consent, or voice their agreement to have force used against them. This is instrumental to building a functioning civil society, in which people observe fundamental human rights such as life, and liberty. There is no logical difference between the legalization of rape in which people do not consent, and the legalization of murder, in which no one gives consent to have their life robbed from them. 
Something shouldn't be illegal and that thing is legally passed. It doesn't compute. These are opposite.
  • You can legally pass law/policy that makes an action illegal. 
Any law passed, rape, abortion, slavery, murder by the capital humanely and tenderly known as capital punishment should be legal because something happened called the "passing of that law",
  • We are not debating whether or not the making of the law should be legal, we are debating whether or not the action of rape should be legal. 
  • Con has made no argument against the resolution, so the decision is simple here.
