I frankly believe that celebrities should have more privacy rights than they have now because it is one of the 30 Human Rights. They are humans like us just with an abnormal career.
JustinBieberFan123

Con

Pro affirms that celebrities deserve more rights of privacy than the average human being. However, to affirm that specific people deserve more rights than others is not equality. To say that they need more rights, would imply that they are greater than everyone else. It is unfair if they had more rights than any other person, only based off what career path they chose. It is known as "human rights" for a reason... They are human - they get as many rights as any other human being.

Features such as the paparazzi are known to stalk famous people - they might already be breaching privacy rights by doing this. Nonetheless, if celebrities received more privacy rights, it wouldn't just mean that the entire paparazzi would be eradicated. There is no logical way to deduce that outcome.

To conclude, if celebrities received more privacy rights than any other human being it is inequality. Inequality should not be encouraged so the assertion should not be implemented. I have also stated that it would not be effective, nothing would stop the paparazzi from doing what they are doing. Pro's logic is that if they have more rights, stuff like the paparazzi would not happen. The same logic can be applied to murder, just because there are legal laws in effect, and committing the crime would be breaching human rights , does not mean that murder does not occur.

Over to you, Pro.

Looks like my adversary was kidnapped or something.

I suppose this is the part where I say "I extend"?

Oh well. Might as well just post a recipe for cookies.

"Ingredients
Serves: 72
85g best-quality cocoa powder
400g caster sugar
125ml vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
250g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
60g icing sugar

Method
Prep:20min " Cook:12min " Ready in:32min
In a medium bowl, mix together cocoa, caster sugar and vegetable oil. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the cocoa mixture. Cover dough, and chill for at least 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Line baking trays with parchment. Roll dough into 2.5cm balls. Coat each ball in icing sugar before placing onto prepared trays.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand on the baking tray for a minute before transferring to wire racks to cool." (1)

But remember, diabetes is a thing now.

Nonetheless, what Pro is affirming would logically be ineffective, and would encourage inequality... ...and she did not post a recipe for cookies! Why do celebs need privacy? When they could have cookies?

Hmm. Why instigate an argument when you can't appear?

Very well, for people who want to learn how to ride a penny farthing, here you go:

>jethro_purazo: Moderator removed vote<

Voted 7 points to Pro. The RFD was as follows: "Yes. Their life should also be private."

*Reason for removal.* This RFD failed to explain every single point (argument, conduct, S&G, sources) and seems to have voted based only on personal opinion, which is impermissible.

Jet hero, voting doesn't work like that. Just because your opinion differs from mine, doesn't mean that I automatically lose the debate. *Vote bomb alert*

Artists' life should be private. Everyone deserves privacy. Privacy shows respect.

Poe-vahkiin, she stated in the first round, "I frankly believe that celebrities should have more privacy rights than they have now". More privacy rights means more than other people.

Anyways, thanks for your response.

Though the lack of comments guarantees victory from con, I would like to point out that Pro never said that celebrities should have more privacy than other people, but more privacy than they already have. I agree, as the information posted about celebrities is usually biased, and can give someone an falsely made reputation that may not fit their actual beliefs or actions.
