Top Ten Topics Which Cause the Most Discussion

Whether you want a deep intellectual debate or just cause an argument, these topics will guarantee one of these.

The Top Ten

1 Politics

Politics are the definition of discussions. - Userguy44

One opinion I have on politics could affect the amount of followers I have. A lot of American users on here are either liberal or conservative. And if I say one good thing about Obama, I get bashed for it. Shoot me. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

You may have no interest in politics, but be assured politics has a huge interest in you.

"I learned early on, stay away from politics, stay away from religion and don't talk about sports. Those three right there will get you in trouble." - Gabriel Iglesias
Trust me, man. I know how it feels considering how I talk about politics a lot, though I've tried to lessen up on it and that I try to talk about other things. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Music

On TheTopTens, music is a big issue.

Well, yes. There's music, and then there's glorified noise.

#Classy purdy much guaranteed success if one can hit the right crowd. - moonwolf

It does for me and my closest Friends. Music is a great topic! - Curti2594

3 Religion

Most people stereotype it as atheists yelling at anyone who mentions a god or gods, but it goes both ways. Example:

Person 1:
Woah, my Pokémon just evolved! I'm so happy!

Person 2:
Evolution is NOT REAL! Start worshiping the almighty God and not Satan or have fun burning in the lake of fire!

Person 1:
...What if I don't believe in God...or Satan...

Person 2:

Person 1:
You do realize this conversation started with me talking about Pokémon, right? This is kind of ridiculous.

Person 3:
I agree with Person 1.

Person 2:
Well, you guys can have fun agreeing in the LAKE OF FIRE!

Person 1 and 3:
Let's just stop talking.

Person 2:

This is a legitimate conversation I had on social media. I was Person 1.

Social Media:
Man 1: My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends. I know the victims are in a better place.

Man 2: You idiot there is no god or heaven so stop wasting your time... Blah blah blah

The argument just goes on and on for pages about proof and monkeys and the Big Bang. Why can't people just accept that people believe in different things, always some people arguing back and forth but it gets no one nowhere.

4 Sport

Sports garners a bit more discussion for me then Music! Though all of these choices are reasonable topics! - Curti2594

Especially with my brother and Dad - Curti2594

5 Sexuality


Boy, oh boy. People shouldn't think of a person's sexuality as their defining characteristic. Just saying. - Elric-san

Well it can yeah. whether its how good another person looks or innuendos or When your plays Cards Against Humanity. - Curti2594

What is it now, LGBTAPQIFBOH+? - PetSounds

6 Video Games

Certainly does work. But you need friends who also play and know what your talking aboot or your just a weirdo - Curti2594

7 Relationships

Yes guys always wanna know about past relationships - RylinB

All kinds of Relationships for sure - Curti2594

8 Films

Isn't that the point of seeing a movie? to have a grand Discussion with someone aboot it? - Curti2594

9 Science

There is science, and there is junk science. And then there is theory, in which one's grasp of logic and the scientific method (anybody remember that? ) is critical in determining in which category (science or junk) any given theory belongs.

Hopefully, this list will bring substantive, relevant debate to this site, on many of the subjects you've suggested.

10 Death

It's not common where somebody dies and nobody notices or cares - EchoX0

I think we can all agree that this is bad - RecklessGreed

Anytime someone famous or close to you or someone you knew died it always brings a bit of a discussion

Also R.I.P. Muhammed Ali - Curti2594

The Newcomers

? Money

Interesting how nobody after three years thought to add 'money' to this list. Honestly, how many times have you asked or been asked, "What would you do if you won the lottery? "? It is such a common question yet we never seem to get tired of answering or discussing it. It is also the question that may lead to many long late-night conversations. - ParasN2000

Okay, I'm a self-professed grammar nerd. I even wrote an entire paragraph on why grammar is important for my language arts. - RiverClanRocks

Don't worry. I am known at school for being obsessed with grammar, and one of my friends actually abandoned me because I corrected his grammatical mistakes eight times during lunch. - MaxAurelius

I guess you could call me the grammar Nazi or maybe even Hitler when comes to grammar... - funnyuser

Wi done kneed know steenking gramma!

14 Abortion
15 Literature
16 Feminism

I actually have a friend who knows a lot about radical feminism, so most of my info comes from him, and we have seen so many things that makes us cringe at the thought (not saying all feminists are bad, just radical ones. - Elric-san

Feminism is dead, and so are the feminists' brains. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Ah, radical feminism. IT SUCKS. - RiverClanRocks

I don't even know much about radical feminists and I hope I never will. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
