why do we listen to music with curse words.why should we listen to rapper call us hoes, bitches. thats not right
Logical-Master

Con

My opponent argues that listening to music with curse words is not right, but presents no reasoning for this. Since he presents no premise, he does not have a valid argument.

According to a study provided in "Journal of Personality and Sociology (Vol. 84, No. 6), most people's music preferences fall into four categories: http://www.apa.org... . Reflective and complex, intense and rebellious, upbeat and conventional, and energetic and rhytmatic. These terms outline ones personality. Thus, people listen to music based on their respective personalities.

So with that said, I submit that my opponent is equating personal preference with right and wrong. Obviously, there is no right and wrong when it comes to personal preference . . . although to use "politically correct" reasoning, as long as there is no harm in listening to any genre of music, there is no
problem.

Keep in mind that it is my opponent's job to back up his claims. So far, he hasn't done so. That alone is enough reason to vote for my case.

Thank you.

Debate Round No. 2

Pro

JheneBaby forfeited this round.
Logical-Master

Con

My opponent has forfeited his round and has presented no arguments to address my own. Thus, an extension of my arguments well warranted.

Reasons to vote for con: The pro presented no evidence to support its claims and the con presented evidence to counter the pro's claims. On top of all that, the pro essentially concedes to the con's case through dropping all of its arguments (by means of not responding).

Thanks and good night.
