I do think 666 should be a special demon rank. Satyr, in keeping with the night elf theme, perhaps.

It's funny that America has such issues with anything sexrelated and still has an incredibly high teen pregnancy rating. The Netherlands shows nudity on tv all the time, has legalised prostitution and drugs and teenagers have sex at a pretty early age, yet has less drug-related problems, less people in prison, less teen pregnancies etc.(all % of total population ofcourse).

We're not letting you post porn on the site, if that's what you're asking.

That could be because of suppression more than anything. The more you bottle up your urges the worse they get, but that's just what I think.

Well, most the colonies were founded separately from the Puritans, it was only really Massachusetts. I mean, Georgia was founded for debters.


Most Puritans went to the Caribbean anyways. More money there.

I don't want to know what porn you guys watch. I don't even want to know that there is a link I could click on that would show me.

You're full of well-educated white folks there.

Most (not all, but, overwhelmingly most) of the teen pregnancy in America occurs amongst our impoverished minority population.

It's not a pleasant fact, but that's really all there is to it. You can point your overprivileged godless atheist finger at us and mock our religion, but that has nothing to do with the issue.

It's poor blacks and latinos getting knocked up. That's all.

It has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with poverty and misinformation. Religion plays a part in misinformation (ban on condoms) while poverty just means sex ed usually doesn't happen. There are still a lot of people who are stupid enough to think that "pulling out porn style" is perfectly safe.

I think it would be cool if we could choose between the rank themes like we do with the background.

It has a lot to do with race, and denying it for the sake of political correctness doesn't help the problem.

Cultural problems follow racial lines more often than not. That's just how it is. I'm not trying to suggest it makes any one race better than another - but each has its own unique set of challenges.

It's a culture of poverty, especially in regards to inclusion/exclusion. If you operate on the principle that only your group (inclusion) gives good information, and distrust outside information (exclusion) due to fear of groups in power over you, you end up not taking pertinent advice. Statistically poverty is the major factor in whether a teen grows up with accurate knowledge and decision making skills in regards to sex. It's fairly complex statistics to work through, but when you break it down to the primary factors you realize that race is the most ancillary of these factors. Minorities tend to be more impoverished in America than caucasians, and due to this use community resources (churches) for their education more so than publicly funded facilities. Religion is directly correlated with inadequate sex education, with the most religious being the most likely to advocate abstinence only education. Lacking information on STD and pregnancy, these kids then aren't adequately equipped to prevent higher incidences, and with a cultural stigma of abortion ingrained they end up bringing the babies to term.

So, overall, while race is a factor, it only affects probability when paired with poverty and religion levels, otherwise it isn't a significant enough statistic to mention.
