Lmao, I always knew reading comics was my religious calling.

I love Runaways, but if your looking to become updated on the current status of the marvel universe then i wouldnt suggest it, simply because, although its a part of the marvel world, it does tend to keep within its own part of it.
I say, if your buying Trade Paperbacks, pick up the first volume (at least!) of ed brubakers run on captain america. Not only is it an awesome comic but the events within connect to the marvel uni at large.
If it "discounts" everything, then next time your wife or girlfreind has sex with someone since her hymen will not be broken she will not be cheating on you.Your right about one thing Cezar, You either are a virgin or your not.
Just remeber that. ;) Someone can still contract a disease from all those other activities.
Everything counts. You either are or you are not a virgin."
What's debatable is the criteria for virginity, and according to the Medical definition Methos included above, that means if the hymen is intact, a girl is still a virgin.
For example, if You have a girlfriend who kisses other men behind your back, well... She's definitely cheating on you, thats true, but if her hymen is intact, she's also still a virgin.
Btw, I'm guessing you missed the question I asked you earlier, since it was put in an edit. So here it is again -
"Can't you at least admit that, according to the Dictionary definition of the word Mainstream (the link to the Cambridge website was included previously and you can google Oxford) that your views are wrong? "
I've become so jaded with the all-action superhero titles that i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to read if you looking for superheroes that actually solve crimes.
The obvious choice to me is, of course, Detective Comics but the problem is that it doesnt always live up to its namesake, and i certainly cant afford to just randomly buy old issues and TPB's and hope for the best.
Any-whoo, thanks for any help on this.
"Be a general badass...Rule number 1 in supervilliany =]
You make a lot of interesting points Methos, and alot of questions that probably need answers before Wonder Woman grows to old to f*ck.
Hell, each questions worth its own dam thread.
Although I think you may have made a mistake at the start, i'm not sure so bear with me. Hopefully you'll get what i'm trying to say.
Let's assume the the scientific definition of virginity at the start of your post is true for now...
That is - you are a virgin until you've had sexual intercourse with the member of the opposite sex.
Now, to me sexual intercourse means penetration with, youknow, the appropriate organs. If you agree with me that this is true...
(Jesus, i've just realized the f*cking surreality of this conversation. Lulz)
anyway, if its true then your sentence
"the standard definition of virginity lets you get away with having a lot of different kinds of sex was still being able to call yourself a virgin." - may be circular, or something.
I think it depends on your use of the word sex, if sex to you means more than "intercourse" then you've assumed your conclusion. And if if means precisely that (which is what i usually use it for) then your statement is wrong because they're can be no more than one "kind" of sex i.e. intercourse. Everything else such as fellatio or whatever, would allow you to keep your scientifically defined virginity because its not sex as specifically defined as intercourse.
EDIT: @ Cezar -
Can't you at least admit that, according to the Dictionary definition of the word Mainstream (the link to the Cambridge website was included previously and you can google Oxford) that your views are wrong.
Its not about letting each other believe what we want, if that was the case neither of us would have even bothered trying to convince the other in the first place.
Its about who has the stronger argument for truth, and from the beginning i've based mine on sources higher than personal opinion i.e. www.comichron.com for sales numbers, and the online cambridge and oxford dictionary.
I think the best villains are the ones you truly believe are capable of "winning" against the hero.
Its not just believing their capable of defeating the hero in a fight or even killing him, although that's definitely a part of it. They have to be able to attack the hero in ways that he nor you ever expected.
I think thats why everyone loves the joker, Cause when he's written well, he's completely unpredictable.
I dont think Magneto has ever considered himself evil, and considering his backstory i've always thought that was one of his most interesting qualities.
Very well said. You make good points about what exactly makes a virgin
I already thought she was, well, eh, let's just say active =] but i didnt know they were creators who have tried to canonize it in some way.
