Con

This is a debate on simply Miley Cyrus. Not on her show, just her as a person. I am totally against Miley. She is a horrible role model for the millions of young girls that look up to her. This is a short first argument I know, but I do need something to rebut. Thanks so much! :)

If she is as bad of a role model as you say, then the millions of girls that look up to her can find a new one. We all know she is simply another breast-fed by Michael Eisner, bubblegum-pop light as a feather mass consumption of idiocy model, right?

Or do we?

Why is she a bad role model? What specifically has she done? Has she committed any felonies? Does she smoke crack? Does she abuse little children?

First, the debate is started under the assumption that "Don't Break my Heart, Jr." is a role-model. Can you please clarify the difference between a "good role model" and a "bad one"? What values/criteria do you assign to good and bad, respectively? How do your personal ethics, which you are judging one person with and projecting onto "millions of girls," affect your point of view?

Second, this person is young, attractive (I use that word loosely, I'm sure she is to some), talented (even more loosely), and successful. For our culture of consumption that worships exploited barely-there teenyboppers who "live on the wild side," I can see no better role-model. This is America: the market provides what people want. They wanted, and still want, this young lady, evidently.

Another defenseless position... Why put up a debate if you aren't prepared to discuss your ideas critically?

My argument stands for this round.

My opponent has forfeited by not giving an argument, and then by not rebutting anything I said. Whatever your feelings on Miley Cyrus:

I'm with CON in my heart, but I don't think he/she can recover after PROs great opening statement. I shall see.

Is it just me, or is there an influx of debates about trivial topics lately?
