Beauty is skin deep
Debate Rounds (5)
My opponent seems to be confused at what beauty being skin deep means. While Pro argues that people should who are fat, ugly, etc. should be considered beautiful so they can feel good about themselves, he fails to recognize he is explaining why beauty is skin deep. That being that what makes someone beautiful is based on his/her outward appearance.
So, I'd recommend my opponent argue for the side he is on, as to not make this debate easier on me.
http://dictionary.reference.com... defines beauty as:
I am not confused about what beauty being skin deep means. Beauty should actually be skin deep because most people judge others based on their physical appearance rather than their personalities. That is what really matters. Like the saying: "Don't judge a book by its cover, it's what's inside that's matters," - Michael Green (http://www.libraryofquotes.com...).
The quote shows that what is in the inside and nothing should be judged by the physical appearance.
By the way, I am a female.
Now I assume you'll want to go on with round 2.
If my opponent did build her argument around her correct uderstanding of the phrase "Beauty is only skin deep." Then I am to assume I misunderstood the point of her opening statements.
I interpreted what she wrote as what we appear as on the outside isn't what makes someone beautiful, but it is actually a person's inner character that makes them such.
That is, however, in direct contradiction to what "Beauty is only skin deep" means, which is that a person can have an amazing personality whether or not they are beautiful outwardly.
Regardless, she has yet to provide an argument to support her case, which means I have no refutations to deliver.
On to round 3.
Yes, someone's external beauty might lead to success, even fame. For example take a model who is successful. It doesn't matter to the designers, and fashion industry that use her if she has the qualities that make her internally attractive. As long as she has the typical six foot, 98 pound, perky, and defined features she's perfectly beautiful to them.
My opponent appears to be digressing at this point in the debate.
All of last round she went into how unimportant physical beauty is in life, and how harmful it is to society.
This is entirely irrelevant to my opponent's position, which is that beauty is purely physical, or merely skin deep. She has failed to refute my opening argument and thus her BoP remains unfulfilled.
Instead of posing an argument last round, my opponent asked a question. This continues to leave her BoP unfulfilled.
The answer to the question posed by pro is simple I do not have a desire to lose this debate. It was completely with Pro's ability to create a strong argument for her case, but she chose to instead argue for the opposite side. Letting a mistake that drastic go is not within my interests.
