Hmm... interesting.

I'm assuming the following is the resolution: "I'm the Prettyiest girl in this damn Debate place"

My opponent has an immense burden of proof, as she will have to prove how and why she is prettier than every other. I assume by pretty, my opponent means she is more beautiful or more pleasantly pleasing than every other girl on DDO. First and foremost, my opponent is a skull with crossbones. I think most people would agree that skulls are not pretty. My opponent should have fun proving why skulls are pretty and how her skull is prettier than every other girl on DDO. Also, here are three girls on DDO who are much prettier than Pro: cjae92 [http://www.debate.org...], asiandebater [http://www.debate.org...], and JBlake [http://www.debate.org...] --- JBlake is the one on the left. In conclusion, I have effectively negated the resolution which my opponent still has an immense burden of proof for.

Thank you for taking this debate, I'm sure it will be a good one.

REBUTTLE: I'd first like to point out that there is no definition of beauty, but ONLY opinions. Sure, you can dictionary.com the word, but they are mere thoughts of what that person thinks the word means. Pretty to you could be thin, blonde, green eyes. But to someone else it could be short, dark hair, and blue eyes. It's only a opinion. Negating my argument is next to impossible; you can't prove there is only one definition.

Just a generalization of my contentions:
CON 1: I'm better looking then anyone else on Debate.org
CON 2: This is my opinion, NO ONE can prove an opinion to be false. After all it is an opinion.

Just some values:
Value: Ones right to have an opinion
Value criteria: Freedom of speech.

Vote pro fo sho.

<"CON 1: I'm better looking then anyone else on Debate.org">

+Unproven, invalid contention backed up in no way whatsoever.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<"CON 2: This is my opinion, NO ONE can prove an opinion to be false. After all it is an opinion.">

+Uhh, I don't have to prove an opinion to be false (although I did). You have to prove your opinion to be true as instigator and pro. Also it is my opinion that you are not the prettiest, so using your logic my opinion would stand.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Just some values:
Value: Ones right to have an opinion
Value criteria: Freedom of speech."

+Straw man, Pro's values are irrelevant. I'm not infringing on your freedom of speech or your right to have an opinion anyway. This is DEBATE.org after all...

=========
CONCLUSION
=========

As instigator and Pro, my opponent has the burden of proof. In this case, Pro has an immense Burden of Proof - she has to prove that she is prettier than every girl on DDO. I have proved otherwise and met opponent has failed to put up an argument. Resolution negated.

I am well aware of my job as pro. Thanks for trying to clear that up.

I proved my contention to be true. I'll restate it:
Beauty is an opinion. In this case MY opinion, not yours. You may be the one who is unclear of your job as con. To negate and fault my case. You cannot do that, seeing as how your opinion is irrelevant to the topic. It's not logic your attempting to use, its an opinion your using. This can't negate mine.

My value stands strong. Its not that you are "infringing" my values, but that they make my case plausible.

My proof is my opinion, and you can't negate beauty is not an opinion, thus this is an easy win for pro.

My opponent's reasoning and lone contention is summarized as follows: My (Pro's) opinion is that the resolution is true, therefore the resolution is true. This is a prime example of circular reasoning, or begging the question - which is a logical fallacy [http://www.fallacyfiles.org...]. My opponent is somehow mistaken that just because it is her opinion, it is automatically true. However, if this was the case, Pro would win every case... ever. Yes, "pretty" is subjective, but it is more than possible to debate subjective topics - which I did and Pro refused to do. Resolution negated.

Pro made the positive claim she was the prettiest. Therefore, it is her burden to do so. I, however, am not responsible for proving a negative, that is just nonsensical.

I hold the position that both debaters hold some burden. Many others feel this way, too.

For the record, I left the argument vote neutral.
