    Some of them have words like "leave" under them so I've assumed it's an EU debate thing.

    Why? I can only see the negatives in remaining , especially with its undemocratic nature of the european commission.

    Periodically TSR releases sets of valid avatars. For example for last years general election, they released a set that had avatars depicting who you were voting for.

    So thumbs for leaving/remaining in the EU.

    I'm sure those voting stay in the debates forums can provide you with a whole host of reasons (many of which I agree with), but to put it plainly, I'm voting to stay in out of a gut feeling. I dislike the uncertainty over country's future, should we leave

    If it says 'in' then the answer is: because they're feminine e.g. emotional, fearful of the unknown (risks), and for maintaining the BS status-quo :yy:
