I make sure both sides get an opinion. But, if someone keeps poking and prodding at me that there opinion is better...I sure as hell will poke and prod back.

I don't think there's such a thing a 'counting' in a debate. To treat a debate as a contest is to miss the point of the exercise, which is to entertain and enlighten. My goal in any debate is to foster further growth of my partner's ideas through contact with my own, and to receive the same opportunity in return.

I don't believe in objective right and wrong in most areas, and barring a few especially dire subjects, I don't try to change how other people act or think, because that, itself, is one of the few things I consider to be 'wrong'.

As for practical arguments, I will voice my side of things, as anyone would, but I'm fairly susceptible to forceful personalities, so I usually end up with the short end of the stick. Charisma, not correctness, is what 'wins' arguments.

I don't usually mind if people have different opinions, or even when people question my opinions.
The one exception is when they have an opinion that is not supported by a reason, those people should be used to test new weapons on.

I let people think the way they want. So yeah,I let them have their opinion

I really only see what I say for anothers considerational purpose.

Even further I don't mind close-minded people either.But I'd rather a close-minded person admit they are the so,and we end it at that, than someone hide the fact that they are close-minded just so they look good to others.But also I have to take it into fact that maybe some don't even see it themselves.

No, that is silly. That sounds arrogant and a bit obnoxious to me to assume only your opinion should matter over another individual. I would not care if you dislike something I enjoy to answer your example, for it is your choice to not watch it.

Opinions are entirely subjective. I can usually respect someone's opinion, because I know a lot of people do not agree with my views. There are some things I just don't want to talk about though. Whenever, the death penalty, rape, killing people, the state of the government/economy/world, religion and stuff like that comes up, I just don't want to hear it. I have my views and opinions, and droning on and on about how wrong I am is not going to change my mind. I like learning new things though. When someone presents an educated argument and teaches me something, I will change my opinions accordingly, or at least be able to see something from a completely different point of view.

When it comes to anime, I get that a lot of people aren't going to like the shows I like. I thought SAO was pretty good. Was it perfect? Hell no. There were holes in the plot and a few other things that kind of bugged me. But I still enjoyed the series and gave it an 8.5/10. I loved Attack on Titan. It wasn't perfect, but it really kept me entertained. 9/10 in my book. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Ai Yori Aoshi, and DearS were all shows I didn't really enjoy. Maybe I need to watch them again subbed instead of dubbed.

I think everyone is like that deep, deep inside. They just don't admit it or see it all that clearly. We all have opinions and therefore believe that they are morally correct or just makes more logical sense in general, it's just that some people are more open-minded to others opinions while others may not be. As for me, I'm a little more open-minded

I can accept that people are entitled to their own opinions, however, the only opinion I will ever take seriously is my own.

I love other peoples opinions at times, it good to get another's perspective. It also promotes interesting discussions.

I might offer my two cents, but never force someone to think a certain way.
I go with the flow. If someone takes my two cents and decides they'd like to go with it, cool.
If someone hears me out, looks at my two cents and throws it on the floor, cool. It's ok

I respect everyone's opinions, I just let them know they are wrong

But really, I only disagree with people's opinions when they are baseless ("Anime is gay!"), or when they disagree just to start fights ("Battle Royale was a terrible movie, don't you agree? You don't? WELL FUCK YOU!").

Other than that, I am fine with people who are wrong.

NO! my opin is worth squat. As long as no children or animals are being hurt.....I don't care. I voice my opinion..buts its just one of many. And I don't care if you agree with me or not....your opinion is just as valid as any other.

It depends .. is it an opinion that's going to get someone killed, or is it a harmless opinion?

Because I really don't care unless they're a threat to me in some way.
