Honestly I can't help but wonder if this is just the natural change in the cost of housing. House prices continue to go up and up. That is not sustainable. You end up with people like my in-laws who have a three bedroom house that is worth $450,000. That's insanity. That can only be sustainable if everything goes perfectly. As soon as any little disturbance, like say shutting down the economy, comes along everyone is fucked. They can't make these insane payments and they default. This seems like part of the natural process of things that will bring the inflated cost of housing down. Yeah it sucks, but what the hell else did we think was going to happen? Did we really think we could continue to sell homes at hundreds of thousands more than they were worth and it would just stay that way forever?

Exactly. The only time you ever fire a gun is when you are trying to kill something. You don't shoot to wound or to frighten. You only shoot to kill.

Why don't the feds throw every antifa and blm in jail? by Honestanonymous in politics

We put people in jail for behavior not beliefs. You can believe in the goals of Antifa or BLM even if the rest of us think it is dumb. You can't burn down a city though. I wish the feds would start arresting more of them for rioting. That shit does need to stop.

No you don't get to watch someone else get raped. Even if they "retroactively consent" which by the way is not a thing. Legally consent has to be given at the time of filming. Children are not legally allowed to give consent to sexual activity.

Huh. That is different. In the U.S. each state is allowed to determine their own rules. Some states shut down completely. Some states, like mine, only had shutdowns in urban counties while rural counties with few cases did not shut down. The lockdown for my county and the surrounding counties was announced around 2pm and was set to begin on midnight that night. We all just ran to the grocery store, liquor store, and then the weed store. There was no trivia. There should have been. I could have used some entertainment standing in the long ass line at the grocery store.

I am immunocompromised(lupus, sjogrens, RA, and FMF) so.....not the asshole you think I am. If I feel unsafe or that I might get infected I don't go somewhere. It's called being responsible for your own health. We don't require people to wear masks for any other disease. Why not the flu? Last year I had the flu for three months. Literally three months of illness. It sucked, but I'm not about to require that every other person in my general vicinity wear a hot uncomfortable mask when it is 95 degrees outside.

Why not use this as an opportunity to explain the racism of the past? Why can't this be used as a teaching tool? Why do we have to get rid of all the shitty things humans do? Maybe it would be helpful for people to learn about the growth a culture can achieve. Maybe it would be useful as a tool to help people explore some of their own prejudices and grow to become better. Do the people who had this memorial changed think they somehow changed history. The dog was named nigger. That isn't nice but it is reality. His name wasn't magically changed to Spot because they changed the memorial.

In all fairness Assad did purposefully release a very large number of militant islamists at the beginning of the Iraq war. They were delivered to the Iraq-Syria border and allowed to cross into Iraq. His hope was that the militants would cause chaos in Iraq while sparing Syria. You can see how well that worked out. When these Syrians began teaming up with the local Iraqi militants the whole thing became a terrorists wet dream that we call ISIS. It's hard for average citizens to fight back against that. Not impossible, but difficult.

Zero humans are harmed in the creation of a video game. Zero. No one gets shot or stabbed because they lost in Grand Theft Auto.

Actual real life humans are harmed in the making and distribution of child pornography. Not only is the act of raping a child harmful, but the distribution of that material is damaging to their psyche. Imagine having no idea if the guy standing behind you at the grocery store just jacked off to images or videos of you being raped. An adult does not have the right to distribute a sexual video of another adult without express permission. Why would you think an adult has the right to distribute a sexual video of a child who very clearly did not consent to any of that?

Trans who was just browsing offered a personal case worker from the insurance company to make sure everything goes smoothly navigating their medical system. Anyone here ever gotten that for their normal or even very-serious medical procedure? by BettysBitterButter in GenderCritical

If you have a condition that is expensive you will get offered a similar service. When I got diagnosed with an autoimmune disease I was offered this. It was offered to me again when I was diagnosed with a genetic disease. I also have BCBS, so maybe it is something that BCBS has while other insurers do not.

I understand why TIMs are afraid to use the men's bathroom. They are afraid for the same reason that women are afraid. Anyone with a feminine appearance is at risk for being attacked in a men's bathroom. Yes even TIMs who do not "pass" are in danger of being attacked. If TIMs were fighting for a 3rd bathroom that was gender nuetral , or even better a "family" bathroom that is able to accommodate a large range of needs (moms with kids, elderly or disabled individuals, transgender people, etc), then I imagine many more of us would stand with them to fight. They are correct when they say that as a society we should make sure everyone has a safe place to pee. They are incorrect when they say the only way for a TIM to be safe is to violate the safety standards we have created to protect women.

We need to free homeschooling parents to do what is best for their child, not what meets the state’s standards. by WooWhoVintage in Barefootandpregnant

[–]Caffinatedllama [score hidden]  (0 children)

I wish that homeschooling parents got a tax refund for the portion of their property taxes that went to public schools. It is criminal that parents are forced to pay for sub par education by threat of having their homes taken from them. Then on top of that they have to pay out of their own pocket for all of their children's educational materials. I imagine if those sweet checks the school district got from taxpayers dried up that the school district might get their crap together.

I don't understand how other people don't get this. The majority of trans people have other diagnosed serious mental illnesses. Of course severely mentally ill people who screw up the balance of hormones in their body having increasingly worse symptoms. This is not rocket science. The exact same thing happens to mentally ill people who are not trans. Hormones are serious business, and fucking with them generally leads to a bad time.

Birth control can be used to treat hormonal acne, very painful periods, PMDD, and many other disorders. It makes sense that a facility that houses a large number of women who are of menstruating age would have the appropriate medication to treat disorders related menstruation.

This is going to work about as well as the other mask mandate in my state. After having enough methed out pissed off rednecks scream threats at store workers the authorities decided not to require it anymore. Turns out if enough mean rednecks just refuse to follow your rules you can't actually enforce them. I don't know who Wal-Mart thinks their clientele is, but in small town America this isn't going to work.
