Women Waring tube tops should be band!!!!!!
Debate Rounds (5)
I would like to make it known that due to my opponent misspelling the resolution, it would be incredibly easy to make a semantic argument and assume my opponent was speaking about a musical band; if I am mistaken in the assumption that Con has simply misspelled the resolution then I ask that they notify me of my error in the next round. However due to the context of Con's argument I will assume they've simply made a grammatical error.
It should also be noted (at least by the context of my opponent's opening arguments) that Con is actually in favor of the resolution while I am meant to oppose the resolution. That said I ask that the voters pay not mind to whom is Pro and whom is Con as they seem to be transposed.
Again, if I am mistaken in this regard I kindly ask Con to inform me of my error in the following round.
That said my argument will be a very simple one; that denying a woman the right to wear a specific type of clothing infringes on her freedom of expression. Fear of potential harms that may come by committing a certain action is not a compelling reason to vote in favor of restricting essential rights. If I really wanted to I could argue that exercising the right of free speech may mean one is killed for offending one in their vicinity. We know this is unlikely but it is still very much so possible; to assume that we should take away or limit this right based on potential harms is absurd. The same concept is true for the freedom to dress however one wishes.
That said, my opponent's rape argument should not be accepted as a reason to make tube tops illegal as the women who choose to wear this type of clothing are aware of the risks present in wearing such clothing. To deprive them of their rights knowing they have the capacity and logical faculties to be aware of this risk is unjust.
Please vote for me!
Next I allude to my opponent's language as a reason his position is illegitimate; he makes Women out to be property instead of free agents capable of protecting themselves. The undermines my most basic argument of freedom to express oneself.
Potential harms don't negate the right to express oneself, and fear that a Woman's safety may be compromised because she chooses to wear revealing clothing is not a compelling argument to violate her rights.
Finally I ask you to consider the implications of negation; what are we saying about men when we assume they're rape any woman wearing revealing clothing? The answer, is not much. We propagate the absurd idea of rape culture and unjustly violate mens' rights.
I ask for a vote in affirmation.
state of mind what i am saying is that we need to protect women as independents to protect their women hood and their person. so yes u should vote so vote for me so that my opponent can understand what this debate is truly about and thats the protection of females and other people alike!!!!!!!
Furthermore my opponent has completely dropped my prior arguments. Women deserve to have their freedom of expression protected and my opponent would have you scrap that on a baseless fear that they may get hurt.
