As for your actual stances, I would've been on your side for all of them except for China. I think in general American's attitude to China is very hypocritical in context to how we would treat other non-Chinese nations doing what China does. Although I do realize that China is quite a powerful nation. I do suspect a lot of Americans do not realize this though...
I completely think that what China is doing is awful and actions need to be taken....but....Why do it at the Olympics? Must we wait 2 or 4 years everytime we want to make a statement? If we wanted to address China's human rights violations, why have we not done it yet?

And the group that was arguing the pro position at the debate was saying that America was a beacon for human rights, freedom, and equality....I disagree. We parade this nation to be so great, when in reality, we have, and currently are committing grave human rights and civil liberties violations at home and abroad. Also, another way to make a statement against China? QUIT BUILDING WAGE SLAVE FACTORIES IN CHINA! QUIT BUYING CHEAP SHIT FROM CHINA! QUIT BORROWING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM CHINA TO FUND THE WAR!

A girl also said that tihs effort to bring homosexual rights up to par with hetero rights sounded socialistic. "All this talk of making everyone equal...that sounds alot like socialism and communism...and I dont think anyone here wants socialism and communism."

Really? Because I am pretty sure those are economic systems, and besides that, equal rights is an essential facet of our democratic system. Dumbass.

Okay, that's a good point. I didn't look at it from that angle.

And yes, you hit the nail on the head about why we tolerate China

If you smoke pot, more power to you...but you just dont see many teachers involved with mind-altering drugs. Except my English teacher, who smells of vodka.
