I'm itching for a fight, so here's some ideas and the stances I would be willing to take.

The following topics were taken (with some modifications) from here.
To be art, something must have been created with artistic intent (Con)
Everything is art. (Pro)
Countries ought to engage in free trade. (Pro)
The French government's ban on Burqas is morally permissible. (Con)
The international community should adopt the legal doctrine of a “responsibility to protect.” (Pro)
Societies should emphasize protecting multiculturalism over encouraging assimilation. (Pro)
Within a functioning democracy, the use of violence to bring about political change is occasionally justified. (Pro)
In a democracy, felons ought to be able to regain their voting rights upon completion of their sentence (Pro).
In a democracy, no citizen ought to be deprived of their voting rights for any reason (Pro).
Checks and balances in a democratic system protect human rights. (Pro) 
Access to food, water, and shelter ought to be guaranteed to all people. (Pro)
Schools ought to provide safe spaces for students. (Pro)

I would additionally be willing to debate LGBTQIA+ policies, but only with an opponent who respects our shared human dignity. I'm interested in the policy discussions, not how far your head is stuck up your ash.

I'm willing to accept debates within the following parameters:
Time for arguments- one day to two weeks
Characters per argument- 1000 to 10000
Point system- winner selection

Before beginning the debate, we should work out mutually acceptable definitions of the words in the resolution, or change the resolution as needed.
I look forward to doing battle.

Hi.  I'm a radical feminist. 

And my feminism is based on sex not gender.  Do you really want me to shut up?  Or we could debate it, if you like.

Add this to the DebateArt section. Hardly anyone browses this section I think without knowing it.
Within a functioning democracy, the use of violence to bring about political change is occasionally justified.
I am guessing you are a socialist. I'll wait for the socialist revolution.
Access to food, water, and shelter ought to be guaranteed to all people. (Pro)
Confirmed.
