society at times can seem so heartless
very shallow and fake
in the way it deems a girl ugly or a boy a 'queen',
it's very judgmental with it's take
always seems to put someone down
for reasons that hardly matter
such as who's eyes are brighter, who's gay
or who is fatter
it's society's ideas that stubbornly remain the
very same
it's bothersome and illogical, now who will
come and join me in the game?

Let's attack every claim you make.

1. To whom is it that society can seem heartless? Everyone? Some people? I think society seems less heartless than the barbarity to be found in nature.

2. It is shallow to reward people based on their beauty, but equally shallow to assume people who are not stereotypically attractive are somehow not repellent or even shallow and fake in their own ways.

3. Judgement is the human condition, but not the fault of society.

4. Society does put people down at times. Point conceded.

5. Sometimes, however, those reasons DO matter. If I put down a rapist for raping, judge him even, I'm doing a good thing.

6. People who's eyes are brighter, are gay, and fat, are objectively better people than the rest. DISPUTE ME.

7. Society is in constant flux. Our attitudes change dramatically over time. They don't remain the same at all. You know how I can prove that? YOU CAN VOTE NOW!

8. It is bothersome, but there is probably a great deal more logic behind it than you give credit.

9. I have joined you in this game by debating you.

There are even poetry contests within the debate contest format, but this wastn't declared to be one.

Oh hon, let me be clear, I don't even dislike it as poetry. It's just, well, this is a debate site. There are forums you can post this kind of thing that people would probably love to read.

Oh? I sorta felt like it was left open ended. Should I have responded with poetry in kind?

Is there a resolution to be debated, or is this supposed to be poetry contest? Perhaps the debate is about unfairness and cruelty being a bad thing? Or what?
