  1. As the new debate season kicks off and teams around the country prep for tournaments, I hope you all remember why Whitman debate ceases to exist. This is a reminder that the Whitman team was not simply defunded-- it was shut down because of repeated instances of sexual misconduct and gender based discrimination. While the school's official statement may have glazed over the severity of the situation, this is nonetheless the case. I sincerely hope you all take the time to really inform yourselves about the situation surrounding the suspension before supporting Whitman debate or debaters, which inevitably ensures the existence of the debate culture that has hurt so many. http://whitmanpioneer.com/opinion/2015/05/07/guest-column-womens-victories-do-not-erase-systemic-debate-sexism/
