Does World of Warcraft truly increase the number of virgins in the 18-30 age range?

No_Promises
Nails

It has been years since i've played but i believe it has always been an unfair assumption that World of Warcraft ritualistically produces virgins. ----------Contentions----------- 1) My view on this moot has led me to believe that it is not actually the game that is increasing the number of virgins aged 18-30 but, in fact, it is the people who have the characteristics that would be found in those of of a "post-pubescent virgin" are actually drawn to this type of game. They require an outle...

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

Firstly I would like to thank my opponent for excepting this debate, and thank the genius that came up with this quote, Albert Einstein. "Your common sense is your natural ability to make good judgments and to behave in a practical and sensible way." Google dictionary (1) Prejudice-Having an opinion on some one or something before seeing it. Working with my definitions, which other than minor semantic corrections are to be used throughout the debate. Looking at the definition of common...

Abortion

Pat
swaqqasolves

As said in the title, this debate is about abortion. I am con, so will argue against. The challenge is open to whomever takes it. This is my point of view: Abortion is an act of murder, wherein a human being is removed from the uterus of the mother, resulting in the death of this baby. Abortion is a violation of human rights. It violates the unborn baby's basic right to live, and should be illegal, except in unusual circumstances. This would include, but not be limited to, rape, moth...

Britain is not a meritocracy

Having read all of the arguments stating that Britain is a meritocracy, I cannot see their point! What part of our democratic society that this country is based on is meritocracy? I welcome any views the opposition may have to this & will argue strongly against them. I hope this will be a lively, interesting debate....

Is having widespread advertising good for a society?

Con The levels of advertising are just too much these days. You cannot walk down the street, ride on a bus, watch television or read your email without seeing advertisements. People shouldn't have to have their lives attacked by a huge quantity of information they might not want. Advertising leads to many people being overwhelmed by the endless need to decide between competing demands on their attention – this is known as the tyranny of choice or choice overload. Recent research suggests...

Cannabis should be legalised across the globe.

Tommy.leadbetter

Cannabis should be legalised across the globe. I am not saying it is harmless, I am saying that a government who bans it's citizens from using it has become over controlling. This debate is about freedom and democracy, more than the health risks of cannabis. Also, this debate is set in the context of the current world affairs. One must accept that they think alcohol, coke, cigarettes e.t.c should all be illegal, if they think cannabis should be illegal as well, based on its health risks....

Online relationships don't work

Truth_seeker
TheShadowCupcake

I know i would've posted this when i was younger, but guess it'll have to do lol I argue that online relationships don't work for the reasons that we as humans need physical interaction (face-to-face communication, hugging, etc.) While yes, they might work for an extent, eventually, you will need to see each other in person. Online relationships of any kind can never substitute for real life relationships. Online relationships can get superficial as you both cannot know who the real person is...

Should we judge people before we get to know them?

Mister_Man
mubaracus

This is a simple case of "don't judge a book by it's cover," however, the cover says a lot about the contents and the premise of the book. I will be assuming the Pro position obviously. We will take into consideration anything we see about a person's physical appearance, including their clothing, car, etc. Anything they're wearing or own the first time you see them without engaging in a converastion. No rules - swear all you want, etc, but I'd like you to be serious - no trolls, please....

In times of utter despair, the only thing a person can hold onto is the idea of hope.

JMac3.1415926

A person does not only have to hold onto hope to get out of their situation. Hope can be the key to survival, but just hoping won't do anything. Maybe a little more effort into getting out of despair will work, but clinging on hope will help less....

janus777

I am in the believe that it should be illegal for all gay couples to adopt or raising any child. I have known a gay couples who have adopted there "own" child, and I saw have it ruined there kid. When he started going to school people started bulling him because of his gay parents, and he"s been going though a hard time ever since. He does not have many friends and generally he is just having a hard time being social. But I can see why, one time one of the boys from his class where holding a bir...
