Porn is the perfect propaganda towards patriarchy
Debate Rounds (5)
I will be arguing that porn is degrading towards women on the terms that it treats them like sex objects, it is violent to women during production, and it promotes hatred toward women. I will be arguing that porn is a reflection of a predominately sexist society and promotes a patriarchy in every way possible
Con will be arguing that porn is not degrading or patriarchal by nature and will provide their reasons for it
I will be arguing that porn is not patriarchal by nature or degrading towards women.
Pro has already commited these fallacies:
1- Fallacy of Composition
2- Hasty Generlization
Pro is also begging the question as they have not defined what they mean by patriarchal or given evidence that pornography is patriarchal. I encourage pro to do this.
Problems with pornography being degrading or patriarchal by nature to women.
Not all pornography even includes man on woman or any woman at all.
Not all pornography is degrading towards woman.
Not all pornography is subjugates woman and even the opposite exist.
Not all pornography viewers are men watching women.
So the pro's position is already contradictory because the argument is pornography is "degrading towards women on the terms that it treats them like sex objects" and yet there are pornography where this is not the case.
It is like saying the internet is a tool for pornography, but this is contradictory because it is used for other things.
There are simply to many variables for pornography to deem it the "perfect propaganda towards patriarchy". It is cleary very imperfect as it does not hold water when one considers the variables.
I framed this debate wrong
I meant to frame it more in a way that is discussing how porn in a general basis (not all porn) is a large part of a growing sexist, objectifying and sexualized culture
If you want to debate that, I can challenge you, but honestly the way I framed this debate is not really how I intended to argue this.
Sorry, and thank you for your time
Pro wishes to cancel the debate.
It's better that pro realizes a mistake in the framing of their debate than try to argue for what they do not intend to argue, so this is best for both pro and con.
I recommend voters not vote on this debate either.
Anyways I'm going to try to redo this debate in the set up I originally intended
madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn
looking for an angry fix...
Yarely forfeited this round.
