To prove Goldilocks was over 18, I figured that I would have to cross off who she wasn't. To start, Goldilocks couldn't be too young, otherwise, she wouldn't have been able to break the chair. She couldn't have been too old, or she wouldn't be able to jump out of bed quickly. Some more facts: The bears were eating porridge, which leads me to conclude it happened in the morning. Goldilocks also fell asleep. She must have not slept enough that night, which leads me to think that she is a criminal on the run who spent the night running away from the police. A runaway kid would have likely stayed in populated areas to get a job. The majority of criminals are over 18.
Interesting side point: In the original story, Goldilocks is an old woman without a name. Since I wrote Goldilocks in the title of this debate, I find it unfair to bring it in as an argument. Here is the story:
In my last argument, I forgot to put a source. Here it is:
My opponent says that, since Goldilocks was able to break the chair, she must have not been too young. I agree. However, it is possible that she is around 17, meaning that she is not necessarily an adult. She is innocent until proven guilty, so until it is proven that she is 18 or over, she cannot be arrested. My opponent also says that she must not have slept enough, as she fell asleep during what was probably the morning, so she's a criminal on the run who was running from the police in the night. It is possible that she hadn't slept enough the night before, but this doesn't mean that she's a criminal on the run. She might just be someone who suffers from insomnia.
Voters, please vote Pro. Goldilocks has not been proven to be guilty, and she is innocent until proven guilty. Make the right decision, voters.
