Bullying is okay. I mean like they have to be bullied for a reason. The weak deserve this treatment. The faster they kill themselves the better. The weak deserve this. The popular people get bored so they need a victim and what better than the weak. The more vulnerable the better. Like I said earlier the faster they kill themselves the better. You all were probably expecting me to be saying stuff like, "it makes them stronger". WELL IT DOESN'T. Their is not enough facts to back up the statement that it makes you stronger. If you are bullied, I'm sorry but it doesn't make you stronger. You'll get used to the pain and suffering and one day you'll just disappear. So you better just disappear sooner and get it over with.

Let me begin with analyzing your opening arguments. How do you even come up with such immoral ideas? Why do the weak deserve to be bullied to the point of suicide? Also, how do you define weak? How do you define "popular?" You have no factual support to back up these unbelievable arguments. The topic of this debate is, "Bullying is Okay." Not whether or not it will make one stronger. But either way, by saying that it doesn't make them stronger, you contradict yourself by admitting that bullying has a negative effect.

As con, my position is obvious; bullying is not okay. So many people get bullied; even bullies. In fact, some bullies are bullies because they are or were bullied.

Bullying has many negative effects. For example, mental damage is caused by bullying. Disorders such as OCD, depression, anorexia nervosa, bulimia, social anxiety- are all direct effects of bullying.

These disorders can lead to suicide and self harm, which no one deserves. It is absolutely unacceptable to say that one- because they are bullied- or because they look a certain way or act a certain way- should kill themselves. How dare you say, "The faster they kill themselves the better?" Put yourself in that context. How would you feel, and how would you respond? Your biased opinion on a topic you no almost nothing about blinds you to the reality that bullying does so much bad. It doesn't pay to be ignorant.

But not only does bullying take a toll on humans, no: it also takes a toll on the country's economy. I am unaware of your nationality, but in Canada, health care is free so every time a bullying victim harms themselves in any way- or even just receives counselling- it sucks from the public health care system. Taxes get higher, which leads to a wider gap between the rich and the poor.

Bullying also removes focus during school hours. A victim may not be able to concentrate either because they are being bullied, or a form of mental damage is affecting their thought process. Not only does it destroy their future, but it also destroys their country's future; in terms of not being able to get a job. At this rate, because so many are bullied, there will not be ample employees who are qualified or capable of doing such jobs as lawyer or doctor. This takes a huge toll on the world. That country will lose world trade partners, meaning economic recessions and inflations, alongside world-wide effects, assuming the country is of first-world status. This could mean that the entire world's trade markets and economies could suffer.

Based on the reasons stated above, be it resolved that bullying is not okay; and that my party should win this debate.
