Pro

Art just sucks and only wimps like art. Bet you can't prove me wrong?
The_Chaos_Heart

Con

My opponent proposes:

1. Art sucks.
2. Only wimps like art.

My opponent has failed to define art in this debate, so I am left to search for a definition myself. I propose, for the purposes of this debate, art be considered to mean any form of creative pursuit. Things like painting, drawings, music, literature, which serve no real world purpose other than to be enjoyed and reveled in.


Now my opponents former claim is a bit dusty, as appeal is something which is entirely subjective. Certainly my opponent may not enjoy art, but how does this become some form of inherent measurement? If we were to measure art based on subjective appeal, we would get no where. So what about a group measurement, comparing the collective appeal with collective disinterest? But even that is still largely subjective and based on spread and popularity. My opponent has failed to give any form of way to determine that art sucks. They have simply made the claim, and expect us to agree.


Now look, art has existed since the dawn of man. Paintings and music have followed us everywhere, across every culture. It should be obvious to anyone that art has huge appeal, else there would not be such droves that pursue it. Painting may have fallen out of the public eye in this day and age, but professional photography is it's modern replacement. And music still plays a major role in our lives. Clearly, art does not suck, as billions of people across the globe revel in artistic merit every day.


My opponents latter claim is easy to disprove. Only wimps enjoy art? Leonardo Da Vinci was a wimp? Vincent van Gogh, who cut off his ear, was a wimp? Ludwig van Beethoven was a wimp? I could go on and on, listing badass artists, but I've already made my point. Clearly not ONLY wimps like art.



My opponent has failed to defend his case, which falls apart in light of my own.

Perhaps I didn't have to, but then again, my goal isn't winning. It's pursuing truth.
