Fedoras should not be worn with the exception of the rare, proud ska punk bros. I believe the use of fedoras could be detrimental to not only the people donning these once ironic hats, but also to the innocent bystanders constantly assaulted by raging douche bros.

I'd like my opponent to convince me that fedoras should be legal.

This is a serious debate.

My adversary claims this is a serious debate, but offers no response as why fedoras should be banned.


She also claims that only ska bros should be allowed to wear them, so "innocent bystanders are not constantly assaulted by raging douche bags"

The amount of fail in this logic is kind of mind blowing. It hurts my brain to even think that there is a human being that can posses this kind of logic. Her essential claim is this

"If you put on a fedora, a magical energy shall posses you to be a raging douche bad so fedoras should be banned to prevent this from happening"

Last time I check, a fedora isn't a magical tool to turn people into azzholes. It is a fashion statement.


She has the burden

She is proposing a change in the norm, so the burden of proof is on her. For something to be banned federally there has to be due process and reasons as for it to be banned. A person is entitled to be a douche bag therefore even if we hypothetically where to admit that a fedora posses a magical quality to turn people into douche bags, this is still not reason enough to ban it.

Fedoras are just cool

Why the eff would you want to ban a fedora in the first place. Its pretty baller, and pimps where them. If you were my hoe I would give you the hand of justice for even proposing such a thought.

Closing

My adversary has provided no logical reasons as to why fedoras should be banned. If even people who tend to wear them happen to be "douchebags" as she calls them, this is not reason enough to ban them all together. A person is entitled to their own personality and this is not enough evidence to incite a change in what is already in place.

Her resolution is not affirmed.

I'm going to be honest, I love fedoras and always will. Your argument is, in all honestly, invalid and unreasonable. I will still wear fedoras daily.

I hope this argument makes you think twice before purchasing fedoras.

@Iamana: Please fix your vote. While on this debate it is of little consequence, votebombing and fluffing are habits best avoided.

Reasons for voting decision: No sourcing. S&G seemed equal. Pro forfeited her own debate, losing conduct. Con actually presented a case, while Pro did not, and won arguments.
