Debate Virginity, wow. I am immensely intrigued on how you came up with that. It's bloody brilliant! But unfortunately doesn't exist.

Anyways, the definitions below are provided by Dictionary.com
=P

Virginity- the state or condition of being pure, fresh, or unused.

Debate- a formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers.

I fail to see how by not having a debate, you are pure, fresh or unused. We have all had arguments before!

Thank you, Brie, for requesting this debate. Though my R1 will be short, I am quite sure I will enjoy it.

You state that:

"Virginity- the state or condition of being pure, fresh, or unused.

Debate- a formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers."

Though I prefer Merriam-Webster, these will do just fine.

Virginity: Simply summed is unused.

Debate: a Formal contest in which there is an aff or a neg.

Debate Virginity: Unused advocation of the negative or affirmative on a resolution esp. in the sense of a formal contest.

If one has yet to debate, they have not used debating skills before. Therefore, they are pure or unused.

I believe my opponent has actually provided my evidence for the win but I shall also propose:

Since I had willed it as a term, both corresponding words in the human language that may be compatible, I have made it existant. Such as the concept of the word "Pie." We all know what pie is. If you don't... Well, you are missing out. But a word or phrase is set in place to affirm in a vocalized sense what the image or idea is. In this case, the word "Pie" represents the image or corresponding idea of the pastry.

This being said, rather than saying "That pastry filled with the fruits and sugar." We call it pie. The same caqn be said for debate viginity. We have a concept of a first-timer's debate I just gave it a name. Therefore, you no longer have to say: "I have taken your first debate." You may say "I have taken your debate viginity."

Thank you,
-EG

That's rather disappointing. Regardless, I extend all of my previous argument and profess that you must, by all currently produced logic, vote PRO.

Suppose its not all bad as you did get the midnight special. I would assume you got a good deal too.

I'm actually ashamed to look back at my old debates... but to answer your question, I lost it to a user named "MidnightSpecial". The account is closed, so I have no way of knowing if the user was a he or she.
