I have

6 articles, an insect, a calculator,

a basic verb, a stack exchange, four spaces,

a core muscle, some males, and some black goo.

I have more, but I risk giving myself away too easily.

Who am I?

I think you are

Antidisestablishmentarianism

6 articles,

Antidisestablishmentarianism - and each "an" contains an additional "a".

an insect,

Ant

a calculator,

TI (Texas Instruments) as suggested by GentlePurpleRain in the comments.

a basic verb,

is

a stack exchange,

SE

four spaces,

Tab (in code styling, tabs are often set to four spaces)

a core muscle,

Ab

some males,

men

and some black goo.

tar

I have more, but I risk giving myself away too easily.

It is 28 letters long.

Title

Antidisestablishmentarianism is a political movement that developed in 19th-century Britain in opposition the Liberal Party's efforts to disestablish or remove the Church of England as the official state church, thus being the great English debate, credit to ArnaudMortier.

    $\begingroup$ Very nice! This is the answer I was looking for; however, the title and the calculator clue were intended to be clued differently than you answered. $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Mar 18 at 16:57

    $\begingroup$ @Brandon_J Would the title refer to the very basic meaning of the solution and the implied debate? $\endgroup$ – Arnaud Mortier Mar 18 at 17:07
  • $\begingroup$ @ArnaudMortier could you elaborate (maybe in rot13) what you mean by "very basic meaning"? I think you are on the right track, but I'm not 100% sure. $\endgroup$ – Brandon_J Mar 18 at 17:16

Extremely partial answer:

Core muscle - Ab.
Articles - Likely a and an, not the.
