Having seen Pitbull15's thread in the forums I decided to challenge him in order to show him that teenage suicide is in no way selfish.

Definitions:
Teenager: A person between 13 and 19 years
Suicide: The act of killing oneself intentionally
Selfish: Concerned chiefly with one's profit or pleasure

Burden of Proof is on Pro.

Structure
Round 1: Acceptance only
Round 2: Arguments and Rebuttals
Round 3: Rebuttals only

I hope my opponent accepts this in order for me to show him the correct view on this terrible issue.

I accept and I will be arguing that teenage suicide is never rightfully justified.
Debate Round No. 1

simpleguy forfeited this round.

I'm sure my opponent had a perfectly good reason for forfeiting. Perhaps we can do this debate again later. Please don't vote for either side.
Debate Round No. 2

I didn't realise I'd set this debate to 24 hours per argument, and as all my other debates were 72 hours I completely forgot I had to do this one. I thank my opponent for his generosity, maybe we'll debate this again later.

Yes, we should. Such a topic requires a lot of thought...

How would we get this removed?

@Mydinosaurhands: I think you are right. Everything done in relation to ourselves is by definition selfish. But I guess the real question is whether or not suicide is ever rightfully justified assuming it's a normal teenager.

@simpleguy: Okay, this debate might still have a chance.

I suppose given that all our actions are taken to feel good, it could be considered selfish.

Oh sorry, my mistake, arguments only.

Just a question, you said we're having arguments AND rebuttals in round 2? Or are the rebuttals going to be in the 3rd round?
