Pro

i have been on crutches for only 1 day and i am black and blue all over. i have not been able to go around for 2 days because i can't walk in them without crying. whoever is arguing against, best of luck :) (you must have experience with crutches for non bias)

Pro

i have sprained my ankle, and have to be on crutches for to months. they are clunky, uncomfortable, and i can't carry anything while on them. i haven't been able to move around for the past few days because my entire body hurts, so i am stuck in bed :/. i used to think they were cool, until they ended up under my arms and i nearly threw them in a fire

vote for pro :)

Con

Crutches help people who hurt their legs walk. They are very good. They are comfortable.

"I'd been brought up on the Upper East Side in a WASP society, which was death on crutches." - Harry Matthews. (I don't know how Harry Matthews is but he is important so listen to his wize words)

This guy would be brought up in death itself if it was not on crutches.




This guy is very happy he has crutches. Although the picture does not clearly show this, he is saying "Come to pappa!" to the crutches. [2]



This chick is also happy she has crutches. The smile is proof that crutches are great. [3]


Now my opponent's argument.

"i have sprained my ankle, and have to be on crutches for to months. they are clunky, uncomfortable, and i can't carry anything while on them."

You can't carry anything if you don't have them either


"i haven't been able to move around for the past few days because my entire body hurts, so i am stuck in bed :/."

Thats why you have crutches. So you can move.


Crutches look nice and are very good. Vote con

"i used to think they were cool,"

They still are


"they ended up under my arms "

Thats the point.


"i nearly threw them in a fire"

Stupid.


"vote for pro :)"

Very bad sentence structurarly because the colon does not go next to the ending parentheses because you didn't have a starting one. It is grammatically incorrect. And its information is false. Do not vote for pro. End of story



Vote for con because Crutches are great.

Reasons for voting decision: In this debate, PRO had a biased opinion due to the fact she was on crutches. Con pointed out how much crutches can actually help when pro only looked at the downsides. Arguments and grammar to con. Links also go to con because he is the only one that used them.
