I, as pro, would like to argue that my opponent, phantom, has a very terrifying profile picture.

Con

Lol!
I accept, and promise not to change my picture while this debate is going on.

Looking forward to an interesting debate!
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

My opponent appears to be using an improperly sized, 75x100px picture as his profile picture.
It seems to depict a dead Osama bin Laden frantically searching for virgins, which are no where in sight of him. He also portrays a very lustful expression in a deceased state.

This, to me, is extremely horrifying, disturbing, gruesome and heinous. The notion that he seems to be in need of virgins even in a deceased state just adds to that.
phantom

Con

My opponent uses gruesome, horrifying, terrifying, disturbing and heinous to describe my picture.

That would mean that when you look at my picture you are terrified, horrified, grossed out, and disturbed. My picture may be a little gross but it is not terrifying.

If these things did happen to you then you must be very weak in stomach.

Since most people don't have a very weak stomach most people are not terrified, horrified, grossed out, and disturbed when looking at my picture.

Vote con.

Pro

My opponent seems to have made a very incoherent rebuttal to my arguement. I do not see any correlation between "weak stomach" and "terrified".
He also states firmly that his profile picture is not terrifying in any way, yet it depicts a terrorist that terrorizes people, lusting away. How is that not terrifying?

My opponent seems to also partially support my stance when he says that " My picture may be a little gross".
phantom

Con

Weak stomach is just a figure of speech. My point was you must be terrified, horrified etc... very easily if that happens when you look at my avatar.

My opponents logic is faulty.
If you saw a picture of a dragon would you be scared?
If this were so, Bin Laden could bomb America with pictures of himself and everyone would be pissing in their pants.


Pro has not shown how looking at my avatar makes people terrified, horrified, grossed out, and disturbed.


Bin Laden rocks. Vote con.

I think he has a more gruesome and horrifying picture now than he did at that time.

Reasons for voting decision: I find the picture humorous from looking at it, and Con capitalized on arguing to the readers like me 'what do you feel from looking at it?' So it goes to show Pro could call an apple an orange repetitiously the whole debate if he wants to but my taste-buds are still not fooled.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro did not prove that con's picture was horrifying etc. A picture of a dead guy isn't scary, especially when it isn't even that recognizable as Osama
