Con

Should beauty pageants be banned?
sewook123

Pro

I accept.

As Pro, I am arguing that beauty pageants should not be banned.

I would first like to define some of the terms.

1. Pageant:
1. a : a mere show : pretense
b : an ostentatious display
2: show, exhibition; especially : an elaborate colorful exhibition or spectacle [1]

2. Ban
: to forbid people from using (something) : to say that something cannot be used or done
: to forbid (someone) from doing or being part of something [2]

I await Con's arguments.

Pro

Since Con failed to provide any arguments, I will provide mine.

Because of lack of effort by the instigator, I also will not put much time and effort into my arguments.

People who have strong self-esteem and consider themselves beautiful should be allowed to enter beauty pageants. Beauty pageant is a form of appreciation of human beauty. People should be allowed to present their beauty and to view and appreciate human beauty. This appreciation will fill everyone with delight, joy, and love for humanity and will thus prevent future wars.

Beauty pageants have gone corrupt and stupid. Moms force their kid to partake in pageants and even go as far as abusing them. They undermine people as though there looks are all that matters. They absolutely disgust me.
