You've underestimated the degeneracy of the internet and it's influence on the direction for the culture. Of course it's hardly surprising. Normal people don't know about the dark corners of the internet and if they do they don't dare speak of it lest they be grouped with the degenerates, or worse expose the innocent.

Personally I think most of this is driven by the internet more than anything. I think the schools have just latched onto it as a progressive identity movement because they don't understand the underlying online forces where most the grooming takes place.

I bet if you banned all children from the internet until they were 18 you'd see the likelihood of trans identification drop to pre-2000's levels.

They'd only become a true problem if they somehow rallied around a singular coherent stance and religious dogma, I don't think that is a realistic outcome, people point out Trump as a potential contender of the kind of person who could manage that but if we look at the Christian nationalist attitudes towards Trump we see he was largely reviled by them before he won the nomination and it was only after that the Republican machine was able to repaint Trump as a god fearing christian rather than a pussy grabbing gay supporting money lover that he got any support from them. And we see now that even Trump's base will absolutely boo him if he says anything like "go get a vaccine" or whatever.

Point is he is powerless to control them. I can't think of anyone who is. The only way you can manipulate them to back you is if you've got a clear opponent you can keep their attention on. Once a dominionist or dominionist backed candidate in office they are powerless to enact any kind of lasting change. They cannot compromise on any issues when they've got the divine charge of their base or else they will lose that financial support. If they don't compromise they can't get anything done in terms of legislation and will likely get destroyed in subsequent elections.

The only real way I think this kind of no compromise Christian nationalism could actually enact their platform fully would be if they somehow work out their own internal differences, which frankly I think is impossible due to not having a common doctrinal dogma, you think Mormons Catholics and Baptists will trust each other with political power? Ha.

Second is they'd need to get a voting majority in the US. They're like maybe 10, 15 percent of the total population at very loose estimates. Maybe they are about 30% of Republican voters (but probably 50% of funding). They are forced to work with more moderate republicans to gain office, and they won't compromise so they can't do that.

Their threat is greatly overstated. Their rhetoric is strong but it's like a Schizophrenic Chihuahua trying to fight a Horse. It will make a lot of noise and be super annoying but it's going to get kicked if it starts to bite, or it will start chasing its own tail and become incapable of doing anything.

Yes it's the flip side of the coin to the whole "all gays are pedophile groomers" argument. Can't make these kind of broad sweeping accusations towards a whole group for the behavior of an extreme minority and expect anyone who isn't already firmly in your camp to take you seriously.

It just gives the problematic elements of any group an easy out and a shield as they can hide behind the majority of normal people who aren't that as a way to deflect criticism.

I think it's white supremacy repackaged. It's essentially encouraging people to separate along race lines again and filling the kids heads with ideas like "White people oppress Black People" which is functionally the same thing as saying "White people are stronger and more powerful than Black People" which isn't far removed from "White people are better than black people"

A lot of these kids if they are fed this for years and years are just going to grow up racist, if a white kid hears "white people are fundamentally racist" Bs their whole life a bunch of them are essentially going to go "well guess I'm racist and can't change so who cares" and will go on full KKK style.

Only way to achieve more equity in society between the races is to downplay racial differences encourage people to not self segregate into racially defined groups and focus on dealing with the real issues that effect the socio-economic gaps we see, namely, poor education and class divides, lack of upward mobility etc.

The clear exaggeration of this person conflating the backlash against trans issues in primary school with life becoming intolerable not withstanding. There is a small but persistently significant minority of Christians who essentially could be described as promoting a theocratic form of nationalism. Fascism isn't an accurate discriptive though.

Essentially these people believe that it is the duty of christians to run the government in a way that god will favor less god himself rain down divine punishments. They are essentially progressives in many ways save their opinions on abortion and gay marriage. See it as their divine charge to legislate morality.

It's nothing new in the American political landscape has existed since the puritans at least. They basically started a state where the church held a huge amount of political power and religious dissidents were shunned and banished from the territory. It's how Rhode Island territory got started after they banished Roger Williams for wanting to be tolerant to the Jews and other religious groups that didn't want to join the puritans.

These days the hardline political christians, some call them dominionists but even that exaggerates the level of organization and solidarity there is within their ranks. They largely hold only the the following in common, that America is a Christian nation and our government should reflect that, and that America needs to pursue good moral policies. They cannot however come to wide agreements on what being a Christian nation means, or what those good moral policies should be. So whenever they do gain some power they'll usually see a splintering of their base which allows for their opposition to make back their gains.

If we actually saw them gain wide power the only real issues they'd come to any agreement on would be repealing gay marriage and restricting elective abortions. They'd be unable to gain wide agreements further than that as exactly what restrictions on abortion should be would fall to debate and cripple their ability to get things done, and there would be endless bickerings between the progressive moralist authoritatian wings that see it as their charge to legislate vice from the world as the push for restrictions and bans on such things as gambling, guns, alcohol, tobacco, violent movies and TV and the like, and the more libertarian-esque leave us alone to do what we wish freedom focused constitutionalist types that would be pushing for smaller government and less power to enforce the kind of moralistic legislation the other wings want.

What people on the left fail to realize is there is no solidarity between the different groups of Christians beyond this vague idea of needing to fight against the liberal democrats. Christian groups will split their churches over even the most minor of doctrinal disagreements. They're threat to American democracy is hugely overstated, wherein lies the real danger of fascism. As the left continues to demonize their opposition and paint them as dangerous threats to society they only serve to further the attitudes that will lead to people thinking increasingly authoritarian and political restrictions on freedom of expression are necessary to stop this fictional existential threat to our society.

It's important to recognize the radical Christian Authoritatian wing of the republican party as something that's real, but we shouldn't overstate their importance or power as anything more as what it is, a small but rabid group that have a significant impact on republican fundraising and are easily influenced with the right kind of messaging. But hold little real political power and never will due to their inability to compromise or form coalitions.

As they say a fool and their money are soon parted. If you know the dance and song they like they'll throw money at you if you sing it.

It was a bit of a fad with super gay millenials for awhile. I've never cared when it's in the context of an adult party but the exhibitionists types always want to do it in public. Naturally the culture of "can't say anything against the gays you homophobe" meant nobody told these people, hey you're going to start getting loads of backlash. When the backlash happened they started to double down. It turned into a virtue signalling style thing for libs to pwn the right. Pedophiles naturally come to whatever grants them close access to children and the current climate where you can't call out inappropriate behavior without being shunned essentially gives them a carte blanche to do whatever they want.

It won't last forever. It only works as the majority of drag supporters are unaware of the pedophile element. They'll push too far as they always do get suppressed and go into obscurity for ten years or so until everyone forgets about it, same as with Nambla.

The gender demographics of video game players is quite interesting. Studios have been trying to capitalize on the "untapped" female market for decades to often spectacularly hilarious results. There were the Disney Princess games on the old Nintendo that failed spectacularly. To say nothing of the kind of shovel ware that got made with Barbie licenses and what not.

Turns out the games that tend to sell the most amongst women are things like the Sims, Animal Crossing, Bejeweled, and Angry Birds.

It's a form of viral marketing. Call it the "hate-and-switch" if you will.

Company makes a point to emphasize that "our new game will have a female/black/insert marginalize group here protagonist". In and of itself there's not real problem with this, but fans will be quick to criticize this for mostly good reasons like "gender of the protagonist has no bearing on whether the game is good, and they've got nothing to show for that" along with a handful of truly sexist or racist takes. Company then plays up the hateful response and repaints all the criticism of it as hateful and gets the internet to work it's magic as the white knights jump in to virtue signal and the anti-woke jump in to decry them and before you know it buzz is generated the name of the game is being spread everywhere and the company just managed to get wider coverage than they ever could have before. It's a classic move out of the trolls playbook. Say something you know will trigger people, sit back and eat the popcorn as they go at it. Gets a whole ton of people who'd never otherwise talk about your game to talk about it.

Disney does this a lot. Rememeber Force Awakens and all the "controversy" with the racists saying "hold up why is the stormtrooper black ain't they clones" from all those horrible racists that didn't read some spin off comic that explained that they weren't all clones? That's when I first noticed this style of marketing. It's been going strong ever since.

Eventually the market will get wise to it and it will no longer work and they'll have to move onto something else. But for the time being it seems like there's no shortage of people who will fall for it. Try to point it out to people in real life though and you'll find yourself the new target of these idiots wrath though so be prepared. People tend to respond very rudely when you suggest they're being manipulated.

Way I see it it's the same as Hollywood floating female 007 or female ghost busters or BBC floating female Doctor Who.

It's been done for years and it's not a problem with the protagonist being female. It's just a clear sign that they've run out of ideas and are scraping the bottom of the barrel to try to find something to keep their stale property relevant. Once they start doing the gender swap type story lines or whatever it's almost always going to end up becoming trite sexist stereotypes and embarrassingly bad plots and acting where they desperately try to make the show seem fresh but changing the gender of the protagonist doesn't actually do anything interesting.

There's loads of great movies and shows out there with female protagonist. There's loads of great games out there with female protagonists. But once you get to the point of "hey what if Mario was the one who was kidnapped and the princess has to save him" (and yes that happened and it was shit) level of just swapping the rolls around, you know it's gonna be bad.

It's pretty funny. I wonder if they'll remove the black characters since seeing them get shot by the cops might be considered racist. Or perhaps they'll remove the guns because it might encourage mass shootings. Or perhaps they'll remove the car theft mechanic because it promotes violence against cars.

Really it's quite hilarious to me. These games were always about being as unabashedly offensive and evil as possible and the same kind of people who can't separate fiction from reality are still railing against it save for now they've come up into the company itself.

Going to call it now, GTA6 is gonna suck. If this shit is happening it's going to absolutely stifle the writing and creative teams, we'll just get a soulless redo of GTA5 with a slightly better engine.

Granted I can't really see what people would expect from these companies unabashedly redoing the same concepts over and over again. How do you go on and improve from GTA5? Back to the Hollywood tried and true spiral of adding women or some other uncreative novelty into the game to try to mask for their own lack of creativity.

Clearly you've never sampled some of the more "exotic" non-western cuisines.

A revulsion to death is a normal survival mechanism. You see a dead animal you need to be aware of the threat that killed it can kill you. Same with old disgusting carcasses that are rotting. You won't want to get sick from disease.

A number of animals are super tasty even if you don't cook them. Horse. Chicken. Almost all kinds of fish. Hell even whale tastes great raw.

Cooking meat is just safer hygienically and usually makes things taste better. Horse is great raw but even better when you cook it a bit. And there's nothing more salivating than an almost raw super rare steak.

The Book of Relevation is clear:

Many things can be said of the book of revelation. This is not one of them.

I find the technological concerns to be somewhat rediculous honestly. Not in terms of government further seizing power and attempting to control the flow of money, great concerns there. But in terms of adding religious significance to that. Why would Satan need technology to use his demonic powers and influence? Wouldn't you be able to enforce such a thing through good old fashioned soldiers if you had the literal power of Satan behind you?

The Nero explanation by far makes the most sense. The coins are Nero's mark and you can't buy or sell without using his mark.

People have interpreted this throughout history in ways that have brought them to conclusions about their current world that fit into the prophecy. These prophetic explanations are clearly not inspired for the obvious reason that we can see with the benefit of hindsight. They simply did not happen. Doesn't stop each new generation from engaging in this folly. There truly is nothing new under the sun. Indeed all is vanity. Government control and resistance of the people are nothing new. The ultimate victory of the state over freedom is as much a utopian myth as the ultimate victory of the proletariat over the interests of capital. The sun rises and the sun falls, human are born, they struggle, and die, and the sun continues in it's path across the heavens unaffected by the strife of man.

I find it somewhat humorous now that millions of Americans believe very strongly in the absolute inconvertible belief in the concept of a pre-tribulatuon rapture for instance. A belief that didn't even exist 200 years ago. Meaning that it hasn't existed as a doctrine for 90% of christian history. But now some treat it like it's an absolute undeniable fact of the bible. Of course these christians are easily manipulatable if they are ignorant of history. All it takes is one charismatic leader to step in and realize this power to control people's thoughts to mobilize people for their own interests. As has happened throughout history. And ironically the same thing that is happening in this passage of revelation where it talks about the beast leading people to worship him.

As the story of Exodus shows us. Moses leaves to the mountain, and without the religious authority and turning to fear, the people quickly rally around Moses Brother Aaron and he seizes the opportunity to start a new religion with him as the head. When the people are left without God they will create their own gods. To disasterous consequences. There is nothing new under the sun. It has happened before, it is happening now, it will happen again. American-nationalistic Christian beliefs are one such example created out of the cultural uncertainty that peppered the 1960's. Woke politics are the new religion create around the uncertainties of the modern era. It gives people their own golden calf to rally around, and escape from their responsibility to deal with the consequences of their decision of following the man that promised freedom but led them into the desert.

In a matter of speaking yes. I think it makes little sense to toss drug addicts in jail and saddle them with lifelong stigma and a criminal record to say nothing of what the financial burdens are. I think it exasperates the problem.

I think that we still need to have policy that greatly discourages addiction, including forced interventions into treatment for the addictions at some point for the most extreme cases. For something like, growing a few pot plants in your house, selling a bit of pot to your friend, getting caught with a bag of weed, the penalty should simply be confiscations with no further liabilities or legal action taken. Don't want to stick people with legal records and stigma for the drugs but also don't want to let them keep the drugs.

Granted if the drug addicts are violent and other crimes are committed besides simply having or trading for the drug itself then there needs to be prosecution for that. But nobody having a bad trip should fear arrest for going to the police and asking for help or medical intervention.

I believe anyone can identify as anything but it doesn't mean anything really.

I can identify as gay if I want but unless I start fucking men it doesn't actually matter.

I can identify as a pilot if I want but unless I fly a plane it doesn't matter.

I can identify as a misogynist if I want but unless I go around hating women it doesn't matter.

LGBTQHIV+ is a political statement. Nothing more, nothing less.

It's all about quantifying oppression and nothing is more oppressive than nobody recognizing your identity so once an identity is recognized a new one must be established that is not recognized so that you can be oppressed and continue the fight for acceptance ad infinitum.

What people don't really want to admit is that self defined identity is meaningless, only identities that are assigned to us by others are of any social benefit. In that way this movement is essentially just a power game, people want to seize the power to define themselves in other people's eyes so they can control how they are perceived. Naturally this is an impossible situation to fully achieve. As people will always make their own judgements about you. All the -phobia and -ist insults then only serve to deflect and discourage criticism.

This is why you see such a railing online over the concept of gatekeeping now. What is gatekeeping except having to prove to someone else that your chosen identity is valid? I identify as an obese to athletic trans-professional baseball player. Why is it allowed for the transphobic team to gatekeep my participation in the sport and fail to pay me a salary? I identify as having a batting average over 800 and a earned run average of 0. Why can they discriminate against my identity?

It's simply a tactic to intimidate and shut down discussion. People with confidence in their viewpoints have no need to resort to emotional tactics like this. It is however a very emotionally satisfying and effective tactic at maintaining ones own worldviews without having to put in any thought or effort at defining or examining them and risk changing your mind.

It is essentially similar to Orwellian doublethink. It's not far off of a church branding it's opponents as heretics. People don't want to have to think very hard. It's just easier to stop the argument with an ad hominem and shut down thought.

I'm happy to play devil's advocate on this one since I don't think it's discussed enough and people lack good arguments against it.

Why should infanticide be illegal? If a woman cannot or does not want to raise her own children is it not humane to allow her to euthanize them in a safe and legal manner rather than resorting to dangerous and cruel methods?

Yes I've noticed similar things. I think most people who aren't gay have their experiences colored by primarily negative encounters with gay people which then drives the as you say needless hate on gay attitudes. Since if you are an average straight person your encounters with people whom you are aware that they are gay will basically only be when they are behaving in these kinds of extremely promiscuous ways and that will naturally lead to them thinking that all gay people are like that. Which I think furthers this kind of social gulf and mistrust between gay people and straight people.

Random sex without relationships tends to lead to empty feelings and I don't think really helps with making people really be happy with themselves. I've seen very similar reactions from straight people before when you mention such things but they can't really use the homophobic angle. I think it's more or less the same, straight people from very strict conservative backgrounds tend to have a similar sexual awakening period if you will. The innocent homeschool girl turned immediate slut stereotypes if you will, I don't think is much different than what we see some gay people go through during their coming out.

Yeah I mean there are many games especially smart phone games that do essentially work this way to get you addicted and then charge you money as a way to remove the frustration. But not all games are equal here, this is largely the problem with microtransactions essentially being a form of gambling.

Typically any sort of game or sport or anything worth doing is slowly going to ramp up the difficulty as your skill level increases or else it will become boring. I think a lot of the problem is though that you've got kids totally engrossed in the game and giving it far more significance than it actually deserves. I've always been the type of person that ramps the difficulty up in games because I find the intellectual challenge of finding ways to overcome the stacked odds to be stimulating,in that case failure is welcome because no failure means the game is too easy and not worth my time. but a lot of people play games with a more mindless simple dopamine release with no actual intellectual effort provided.

Using a simple example is something like chess. Some people will get totally engrossed in it to the point they become upset and angry when they lose even if the loss is fair. They allow their competitive desire to win to overcome their sportsmanship and reality that it's merely a game and winning or losing is less important than improving your skills at it.

In the context of a video game, turning the difficulty to zero on chess is basically what a lot of mobile games do, you get the dopamine rush from winning , you aren't actually doing anything productive at all, it's not engaging your mind, you aren't learning to adapt to new situations, it's just mindless.

Lots of online games basically fall into this category where the game is designed merely to maximize time spent online so you keep dragging your subscription out. In order to get to the parts of the game that are stimulating and fun you've basically forced to spend inordinate amounts of time farming for items or slowly watching numbers go up for repetitive tasks. There's no real challenge or skill it's merely a case of work. That's not a good way to spend ones free time as that work is ultimately pointless towards anything material.

The anger issues are what happens when you've devoted so much time and energy of yourself that you've allowed the game to take an unhealthy status in your life. Anger at a game shouldn't result in outbursts and screaming, it should just result in you turning the game off going outside and doing something else.

I think the problem for a lot of kids is that with modern society, parents are essentially hampering their children's normal development do to various reasons, fear, not having enough time to spend with them, not having a safe engaging environment for them to explore on their own terms. Kids feel this but can't express it, the games offer some of what they are longing for so they are attractive to the child but they won't provide all of it. I think for the most part kids will lose a lot of their obsessive interest in games so long as they have something else engaging for them in real life to make use of instead. But I think for a lot of parents especially in urban environments they do not allow the child enough freedoms to really go out and be a kid on their own so that leaves the games as the child's primary source of exploration of the world and only real outlet for them to truly be a child in the traditional sense.

It's s very difficult issue to deal with, on the one hand I think some games like Minecraft despite having the potential for addiction as with anything are essentially open ended sandboxes where the kids are free to essentially build and play with whatever they can find so it's naturally very interesting to them. I'd go so far to say it's good for them provided it doesn't eclipse real world experiences and life. Especially if they are in the game playing with their in real life friends it's not wholely without benefit. It's better during covid lockdowns for example for the kids to do that vs being alone 24/7 with absolutely no social contact bored out of their minds.

The issue though comes from providing kids with that real world experience now. You've got to really give the kids more independence than most parents are willing to give them anymore. Got to let them go out and play largely unsupervised or at least supervised by the other kids and not try to give them these kind of very restrictive controlled overly safe child environments that are so common these days.

The only way we can really do that anymore is by promoting very strong communities where neighbors know each other and are able to trust that at the very least they are all looking out for their kids safety. I don't think we really have that anymore as people are becoming more and more increasingly fearful and scared of the world and this will push the kids further and further into these virtual spaces because they become the only real place the kids can play since we've more or less prevented them from going anywhere else.

It seems unironically homophobic to me to not be honest about where the disease vectors are coming from.

Like we don't want gay people to get sick do we? I certainly don't want that. I'd say most everyone of any political of religious persuasion doesn't want that regardless on their opinions of homosexuality.

If we obfuscate the very real risk that this is now mostly just being spread at gay orgies then it's just going to mean that gay people go to these without understanding the actual risks that they take on themselves. And they might go and unknowingly contract and spread the disease which will cause more gay people to suffer.

People will tell me that I'm homophobic for suggesting that going to an orgy at this time is not advisable but it baffles me. I'm not saying this because I want gay people to suffer, quite the opposite, I'm not trying to suggest that it's specifically an issue with the orgy being gay, it's the orgy that is the issue not who is attending it. People aren't stupid they're going to notice who is getting sick and who isn't regardless of official statistics.

I should think that gay people would want to adopt a very strong anti-orgy stance for the time being rather than decry those who point out the risks as being homophobic. As things stand now this is just going to result in a lot of gay people suffering directly from the monkey pox and from more social ostracization later as normal people don't want to get sick.

If anything I think this strategy of making it taboo to mention that it's primarily being spread among homosexual men that are sexually active is going to have the opposite effect as intended. And these people making the policies are just going to be dumbfounded about that and just go and blame it on bigotry instead of being introspective and consider their own messaging might be flawed.

I'm very much on board with decriminalization of most aspects of it as there is little reason to arrest random people who want to grow it smoke it or sell small amounts of it.

I think legalization is a different matter however. It's still a drug and I don't think it's good to make it kosher for commercialization. Similar to alcohol and tobacco commercial regulation is needed otherwise you'd get shit like the tobacco companies marketing towards children.

I'm also very much of the mind that while pot is probably safer than alcohol overall in a lot of ways, that still doesn't mean that it's safe and I think that widespread social issues can form if it's normalized. It's very much brave new world like with any drug, take a soma holiday and don't come to terms with the unpleasant and inhuman realities of the modern world.

I have heard throughout my life time and time again many so called men of god revealing their diverse prophecies surrounding the mark of the beast and what it is, end times alarmism is the Christian expression of the same malady that effects the climate alarmists that insist the extinction of man is coming soon, and the same grifters are there to swoop in and take advantage of a group that will become loose with their money for tomorrow we die.

I've known people who enthusiastically embrace every crackpot endtimes prophecy, barcodes are the mark of the beast. Television is the mark of the beast. Credit cards are the mark of the beast. Going to church on Sunday is the mark of the beast. How they continually fail to identify the false prophets is concerning to say the least. I could understand falling for it once, but when one is proven false they seem all to willing to line up happily for the next one.

He was very interactive with visitors, leading him to be ostracised by his fellow chimps. In 2008 he was injured in a brawl with several other primates.

Wow I must say this is 2022. There's no reason for those Chimps to be so bigoted. This zoo must give the chimps DEI training immediately.

Town elders instructed the owner not to go to the police.

"They said I should not take him to the police, but rather let him pay a dowry for my goat because he used it as his wife," said the disgruntled owner.

Wrote this on reddit, whole thread of people justifying failed antidepressants by [deleted] in whatever

[–]Alienhunter 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

My opinion on all of this is drugs in general are not inherently evil and can be used for some benefit but are inherently dangerous to differing severities and should be used with a great amount of caution that unfortunately is not a decision that can be left up entirely to the individual in question due to the real dangers of abuse and dependence, neither should the decision be left up to a for-profit medical industry that has an incentive to keep people as customers over fixing their problems.

I think many people correctly know that the reasons for the depression ultimately come down to the inhumane conditions imposed by modern urban lifestyles, but unfortunately the solution in some cases is not possible for someone who has already fallen into a depression cycle and is unable to pull themselves out of it so the drugs can be a lesser of two evils situation in those cases.

It's not that they don't work, it's more like they are the equivalent of telling someone that the solution to stop feeling unhappy is to go drink a bottle of whiskey. Works similarly. Changes your brain chemistry. Makes you numb to your situations and the problems surrounding you, and does provide you with a brief vacation from life and stress if done right.

But it's hardly good for your health and certainly not something you wish to use in lieu of actually fixing your problems.

I think the core of this like with other issues is people tend to take extreme positions and react to each other which obfuscates the actual more subtle and complex realities that are faced. There are many people myself included who are highly sceptical of anti-depressant use for very good reasons, but our side is mired by people who will go out and demonize and decry the people that use them with claims that they are weak or the drugs are completely unnecessary without understanding the subtleties and hopelessness that people with depression feel. Likewise people who have seen success with them rightly swear by them but their circumstances don't necessarily apply to everyone else and it can be easy to ignore the problems with them as like with any drug, they aren't without a cost.

But this is like demonizing heroin for hospice patients in a way. Heroin is something best avoided by all, due to the horrible risk of addiction and overdose shortening and eventually killing you. But if you're going to die soon anyway, the lifelong addiction to heroin that can be the result of heroin is only going to be a problem for a couple of days since you're not going to live long anyway, so it becomes ethically justifiable to give the hospice patient whatever eases their suffering since it won't create more later.

Anti-depressant are not much different. For most, change of environment, exercise, all sorts of lifestyle changes are the best option and can fix the problems without needing to resort to drugs, but once the depression reaches a point where it's truly beyond the person's ability to pull themselves out and the risk of suicide is paramount, then the anti-depressants are justifiable to use, they may cause some long term issues that will need to be sorted out but if the alternative is death then it's the lesser of two evils.

From my understanding what section 230 does is twofold.

One, it protects websites from being liable for what 3rd parties post on them. Provided they take some effort to remove illegal material when it is posted.

Two, it gives immunities to websites from civil penalties for material removed in good faith regardless of whether or not the material actually is illegal or not.

While removing the second part might help somewhat to deal with the YouTube type demonization instances, since websites are basically able to remove or promote whatever they want anyway it's not particularly relevant to the average user in my opinion.

If the first part is removed that would open up websites to be prosecuted for what people post there. Meaning that if someone posts a large amount of copywrited material, illegal pornography, threats or other such material the website could be sued or prosecuted for publishing the material. Naturally no one will want to open themselves up to such liability so it will mean websites with user submitted content will essentially be forced to pre-approve any and all submissions before they are published which would fundamentally break the way most social media companies operate. Perhaps in the long run, that would be a good thing. But it would hurt their profitability immensely and would greatly increase censorial tendencies imho. The consequences of repeal are not so simple.

I don't think that's a viable solution. Private companies can and do have a legitamate interest in restricting speech on their platforms depending on the circumstances. For example I may wish to set up a discussion forum on my companies website for my products but choose to ban discussion of anything that isn't directly related to my products or company. For example, US politics in general.

This is clearly a different situation than an outfit like twitter which I see as more akin to a publisher at this point. But even publishing companies have the ability to decide what they do and do not want to publish.

I think the biggest problem with Twitter is it has more or less established a kind of monopoly on the internet along with other large companies such as alphabet. But beyond that the viral nature by which content spreads and the lack of transparency do to the internet's anonymous nature or who is making the content and who how and why the algorithms are picking what is being chosen for spread are not at all well known.

Been around for a long time. I don't think there are any clear genetic markers for any sexuality and the mechanisms that determine what causes someone to be straight or gay are not well understood.

Asexuality makes the most sense as something but the way I see it used it's actually shorthand for "low libido" so it's not a sexuality so much as it's a lack of sexual drive.

Pansexual and polysexual I'm still not sure what they mean and how they differ from bisexual. My best guess from people I've met is it's a largely female phenomenon from the "I'm not like other women" personality type. Though I do think the concept of like generally vibing with the other persons personality rather than desiring sex and stuff, explanation I've heard trends as normal for women.

Frankly I think all of these are simply coping mechanisms for people who feel isolated due to perceived feelings of abnormality due to not lining up with the Hollywood ideal of sexual proclivity. Except for homosexuality cause that's actually easily defined.

Honestly, the other half of the answer (independent from, as said, the "you're not allowed to say no to them" fact), is that these are insane narcissists

Well yes. Anyone who would respond with shock and try to guilt you into having sex with them is an insane narcissist obviously.

The rest will make you look like the insane person. While I can certainly appreciate the surrealist comedic aspect of it. I trust you are socially competent enough not to attempt that strategy in real life and not expect a bunch of white knight types to jump to "her" defense. Though perhaps one of them will allow themselves to be coerced into non-consensual sex in order to show how virtuous they are.

As much as I enjoy the giddy middle school humor or saying a word over and over again that pisses people off this is of essentially the same level of maturity that the people chanting "gay gay gay gay gay" in response to the Florida bill were expressing.

I mean the guy vandalized the bakery. If he's committed a crime, he's going to have to expect punishment for it. Even in this kind of circumstance.

What would be a far better tactic to deal with this kind of thing would simply be to have a number of concerned community memebrs of adult age to attend this event, and report any and all sexually inappropriate behavior to the police after the fact so those responsible can be detained.

This shuts down the event but leaves the Bakery looking like the victim and the potential pedophiles free and clear.

A far more effective strategy to deal with these is to simply have a number of people attend with a notepad and a pen to document the activity. Their mere presence will be enough to set off anyone with untoward motives and will not result in the bad optics and legal shield that illegal activities such as vandalism provide.

Rememeber the ultimate goal isn't to stop this particular event. It's to keep children safe everywhere. If these people know they are being watched carefully and will be caught if they attempt to do anything to the children they will move on. Do not give the media an angle to demonize your side. Keep things on the offensive by keeping them on the defensive.

There's way more than three people there so the question remains. What exactly were these people arrested for?

Firebombing a maternity clinic is essentially domestic terrorism. It's really bizzare they choose to do this in a state with already very strong abortion laws.

No means no. Not dropping the issue after constitutes intentional sexual harassment and I can file a legal complaint there.

But no means no. And I don't even have to give a reason. But if you must ask for a reason, know the reason is because you asked for a reason, which shows a disrespect for my own autonomy and is by it's nature consentphobic.

It's just doublespeak so they can claim they are being fair. In reality it's very simple, follow the money, if something spooks advertisers they will supress it. Which is why you'll never see a major YouTube Video getting pushed that points out why it's largely pointless to subscribe to a VPN service.

A serious question here.

Would you prefer if I told you that the reason I am not interested in sex with you is because you are trans? Or would you prefer I simply tell a half lie and say it's because you are unattractive and ugly? Perhaps telling you I think your personality is ugly is better? Or will that cause a disphoria because you identify as a nice person?

Or are these supposed reasons never really stated? I'd expect in 99.9% of situations that you are getting rejected softly with normal white lies like, you aren't my type. Rather than the unstated meaning of that which is more like "you look ugly to me".

Yes there is no evidence of fake shower room gas chambers. They told the Jews they were going for a shower, then took them to a very real gas chamber that wasn't fake.

Yes the Nazis certainly just sat back and twiddled their thumbs while being perplexed at why the Jews were suddenly wearing Jude stars, getting serial number tattoos, and cramming into trains to go off to kill themselves at study camp. Absolutely baffling.

Well it's emotional immaturity and poor self control. It's not at all uncommon for men especially to have issues with this. The game is simply exasperating it and can form a vicious cycle where they become more angry and more frustrated due to gaming more and accomplishing less.

It's a common issue with the kind of bulldozer parents that try to remove any and all obstacles from their kids lives. Poor sportsmanship and the like, the absence of any kind of "bullying". You'd be ridiculed and shunned if you behave that way in a sporting event. But a game is private so it doesn't happen.
