Pro

The media consumes us as much as we consume it, new trends, beauty tips are communicated through media. Therefore media serves as the basis for high standards of beauty within a society.
Vajrasattva-LeRoy

Con

Your argument is nonsense.

Beauty is in the eye (mind) of the beholder.

How high is up?

Here's another fact to support the idea that beauty standards aren't high because of the mass media:

There are huge #s of different people in, or observing, the mass media, many of them having quite different ideas about what constitutes beauty.
As far as I can tell, there's no consensus, no agreement.
Young people might insist that young people are beautiful, or that old people aren't;
old people might insist that old people are beautiful, or that young people aren't, etc.
Blonds, brunettes, redheads, baldies?
Long hair, short hair , no hair?
Hairdos, hairdon'ts?
Men, women, girls, boys, others?

Forfeiting a round isn't forfeiting the debate.
You really shouldn't vote based on how many arguments each side comes up with.
