First I will go on to state each opponents strongest argument and then I will go on to discuss who I feel won the debate putting my personal basis aside. Corissa’s strongest argument was that exposure to violence can cause aggression in children. Children will grow up to imitate what they see and think that violence is the norm. She justified her argument by stating the statistics of children who watch media violence compared to those who do not and stated that their long-term aspirations included being criminal or “thugs” instead of doctors a more socially expected profession. This went against Kara’s argument that there is no link between violence and children unless we were to look at other variables including mental illness or children who are exposed to
Most of these girls come from broken homes where parents have given up or are absent; they’ve also dropped from school. Quérouil also states that “contrary to their male counterparts, who fight to gain control of a council estate block, those girls get into fights far from their homes and without any financial motivation” (2012).
