Swag is essentially another word for cool. But, it's anything but cool. 13 year olds act like they're on the top of the world, by just saying it. If you don't think swag is stupid, take a look, at these pictures. And no, I did not make these. These are actually real quotes from people.

First of all, let's define the term "stupid" using Merriam-Webster's dictionary: "given to unintelligent decisions or acts"
(http://www.merriam-webster.com...)
The main problem with my opponent's argument is that it does not at all show that swag itself is stupid; it only shows that some of the people who use the word are stupid or that the term has been applied in a stupid manner before. This does not come even close to affirming the resolution "swag is stupid".
I will go ahead and present an opening argument of my own, showing that swag itself cannot be "stupid". The presented definition of "stupid" is such that it can only be applied to beings which are capable making decisions and/or acting; a being which is incapable of decision-making or acting cannot be "stupid" because it cannot make 'unintelligent decisions or acts' in the first place. In other words, the term "stupid" can only be applied to sentient beings. Yet swag is an inanimate concept, wholly devoid of sentience, meaning that the term "stupid" cannot be applied to it.
The resolution is negated.
