Round 1
Con
i just realized that i go first in this system and since i don't have any issue to say my stance on, this first round for me is kinda pointless. but tell me what issue you'll like to debate on.
Pro
From the comments:
"ill like to debate on why i think everyone is bisexual."

As such, the topic is:
"Everyone is bisexual"

You will argue that everyone is bisexual.
I will argue against this statement.

"Everyone is bisexual" means that every person in this world is bisexual.

What arguments do you have to support the claim "Every person in this world is bisexual"?


Round 2
Con
I believe that everyone is bisexual because what really determines our sexual desires? That is a philosophical question; no one can provide a factual answer; people can provide theories but no facts. my theory or belief is that we're naturally supposed to be on this earth to like whatever we want, and the question of who we like or exclusively like doesn't matter until we have to face the opinions of others. And I could go into anecdotal experiences with people to support that, but that won't do for this debate; instead, I think a better example is to look at our men of today and how they react to sexuality and what they want. as many "pride months" or "pride commercials" as we have, men liking men isn't cool in society. Many men will tolerate any lgbtq+ issue, but will most likely refuse to get involved. men and women throughout history have questioned their sexuality, so it's not like it's anything new. So, why don't men today want to confront it? There are a plethora of reasons why any given American man doesn't want to, but I know one for sure: societal pressure and what getting involved in such issues says about you. When you begin to question your sexuality, you are perceived as different or strange, and who wants that? and it definitely doesn't help; we don't get taught to love ourselves for who we are, so we just ignore it and make the real-life issues we all go through at some point in our lives (men and women) into something that doesn't concern/involve us. So, what does that leave us with? Men with conflicted sexual desires that must act a certain way because they believe that if they do not, society and the people around them will regard them as weak. But that's just one example of how societal norms limit the human progression we could have if it weren't for manufactured sexual desires.

My response to your arguments


I believe that everyone is bisexual because what really determines our sexual desires? That is a philosophical question; no one can provide a factual answer; people can provide theories but no facts.
Is an unsupported claim, in my opinion.

"What really determines our sexual desires?" is not a suitable argument to support the claim "Everyone is bisexual".

"What really determines our sexual desires?" is a question, not an argument.

Further, you claimed that no one can provide factual answer to it.

"Not knowing what really determines our sexual desires" does not lead to conclusion of "Everyone is bisexual".


my theory or belief is that we're naturally supposed to be on this earth to like whatever we want
Is an unrelated claim. 

"To like whatever we want" does not mean "We all want to be bisexuals".
It could very well be the case that "To like whatever we want" in some cases means "To like women and not to like men".

The claim was "Everyone is bisexual".
To support such claim, you must provide an argument that makes me unable to reasonably question such claim. You must convince me and others that every person in the world is bisexual.


and the question of who we like or exclusively like doesn't matter until we have to face the opinions of others.
Does not support your position.

"the question of who we like or exclusively like doesn't matter"
"the question of who we like or exclusively like does matter"
These are the claims that dont lead to conclusion of "Everyone is bisexual". 

"Having to face opinion of others" doesnt mean that "Everyone is bisexual before facing opinion of others".


I think a better example is to look at our men of today and how they react to sexuality and what they want. as many "pride months" or "pride commercials" as we have, men liking men isn't cool in society.
"It Isn't cool" does not mean "We all secretly want it".
The other explanation could be "we dont want it".


Many men will tolerate any lgbtq+ issue, but will most likely refuse to get involved.
"Refusing to get involved" and "tolerating" does not equal to "Everyone  is a bisexual".


men and women throughout history have questioned their sexuality, so it's not like it's anything new.
Could you provide us with the proof that every person questioned their sexuality to the point that this claim is true: "Every person is bisexual at some point in their life"?

I am ready to admit defeat in case you prove the claim "Every person is bisexual at some point in their life".


So, why don't men today want to confront it?
There are a plethora of reasons why any given American man doesn't want to, but I know one for sure: societal pressure and what getting involved in such issues says about you.
"Everyone not confronting their sexuality" does not mean "Everyone is bisexual".

Their sexuality could be "straight" or "gay". 

We have no way of knowing if it is true or false that "No man confronted his own sexuality".

If such claim is true, we still dont know if everyone is bisexual.
The other explanation for "Not confronting" could be that it is not true that "Everyone is bisexual" and that people dont confront their sexuality because they are ashamed to talk about it and it causes them to feel bad. Even straight people can be ashamed to talk about straight sexuality in details.


When you begin to question your sexuality, you are perceived as different or strange, and who wants that? and it definitely doesn't help; we don't get taught to love ourselves for who we are, so we just ignore it and make the real-life issues we all go through at some point in our lives (men and women) into something that doesn't concern/involve us.
Is not related to topic.

"Person will be percieved as different or strange if he questions his sexuality" does not lead us to conclusion that such person is bisexual. Maybe such person doesnt question his sexuality because he knows he is straight.

What does it mean to question a sexuality?
To wonder if I am bisexual?
Such wondering does not lead us to conclusion that I am bisexual.


So, what does that leave us with? Men with conflicted sexual desires that must act a certain way because they believe that if they do not, society and the people around them will regard them as weak.
Is a confusing claim. 

There is  no reason to believe in the claim "Everyone has conflicted sexual desires".

There is no reason to believe in the claim "Everyone has bisexual desires".

"Society and people regarding bisexual behavior as weak" does not tell us that "Everyone is bisexual".


But that's just one example of how societal norms limit the human progression we could have if it weren't for manufactured sexual desires.
I would like if you explain why you believe that everyone has bisexual desires, or why you believe that everyone had bisexual desires at some point in their life.


My arguments

It seems to me that we cant know for sure if everyone is a bisexual. We cant read people's minds. We dont know if people are what they say they are, or if they are just pretending. If we cant know that, then we also dont know if the claim "Everyone is a bisexual" is true or not.
