I think kids shouldn't be aloud to play Minecraft because there is a lot of bad people, and language on almost every server, and it could teach kids that it is okay to play, and say those things. If I ever get a Minecraft account, I would report everybody that I heard say that language.

I accept my opponents challenge and wish her a good discourse!
I also would like to point out a spelling error in the resolution. The word "aloud" is used when I am quite sure that my opponent intended to say, "allowed."

I will start by refuting my opponents "contention" and then building my own argument.
If a child is exposed to foul language on a Minecraft server, then it is up to the parents of said child whether or not they want their child exposed to said language. It should be the decision of each individual parent as to whether or not their child is allowed to go online onto servers that may not be family friendly. Furthermore, if a parent didn't want their child to experience such foul language, they could easily set up their child's computer in such a way that prevents the child from going on to any online servers.
My opponent believes that the problem is in the game, but Minecraft does not encourage the use of vulgar language. Minecraft encourages exploration, fun, and creativity. Minecraft is a fun game that appeals to all ages, due to the "sand-box" nature of the game. This allows players to explore and express their creativity in a fun and appropriate way.

This leads me to my primary contentions.
A) The game allows the child to express creativity
B) The game is family friendly
C) The game is entertaining
