White, non-Hispanic women have the lowest abortion rate of all ethnicities, and roughly 850k occur per year in the US, so there will be demographic consequences. The majority of pregnant women will likely cross state lines or secure an illegal abortion, but I expect that a significant minority won't, especially among poorer communities. The result will be a minor to moderate increase in non-White births, as well as crime rates, since legalized abortion is correlated with a 20% reduction in crime.
I don't believe any child should be forcibly born unwanted, and there are many historical precedents for the acceptance of abortion in European civilization, from the glory days of Greece and Rome all the way to colonial America. Hard-line stances against it are a result of modern Abrahamic religious influence mixed with black-and-white Republican moral idiocy. There is certainly nothing conservative about the practical impact of its ban.

Russia's empire will never be ethnically pure, but I do seem them as a force against degeneracy by the simple act of providing an alternative geopolitical pole through economic and military cooperation, allowing other nations to reject the imposition of Western values and forms of governance. They aren't quite capable alone, but certainly are with China and India as partners. All three have taken note of the West's extreme hostility, coordinated economic assault, and relative impotence that followed the Ukrainian invasion, as well as the risk of continued dependence on their systems.

For anyone curious, I'll paraphrase Spencer's dramatic overview of the dissident right. His perception is that they're going nowhere, politically, and that its most visible leaders, like Nick Fuentes and the NJP, are incapable of taking their views into the mainstream in such a way as to significantly impact policy. Fuentes was called a 'little tedious unbearable person' and the NJP 'stupid and ugly'; he wants nothing to do with them, his popularity has been eclipsed because that's the sort of crap the 'far right' likes, and he doesn't consider himself part of the movement because it has bad taste.

Elon Musk's Twitter by rubberbiscuit in SocialMedia
Curating information in such a way contravenes free speech, and it's remarkably arrogant to forcibly sift fact from fiction for other people, as if Twitter's employees have any special qualifications to do so. Of course, it allows the shaping of narratives, the influence of public opinion, and the muzzling of political adversaries.
[–]Dashing-Dove 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun - 5 months ago (0 children)
I'm under no illusion that Elon's decision was out of pure goodness. He's staked $44 billion on Twitter's success and secured his control over the platform. That audience of 205 million is waiting to see how he'll affect it, and they'll blame him if the user experience declines in quality.
Beyond that, why assume the current board makes better decisions than he would, or cares any more about the average person? To most dissidents, they're combating supposed misinformation by unilaterally removing content and banning accounts based on their own internal guidelines, extending to the silencing of a US president's voice to 80 million followers. Their impact on the political process and our governance is undeniable. It's done actively and in a biased manner, and they haven't been held accountable to anyone but their shareholders, who pressured them to accept the buyout. Dorsey himself admitted regret over Twitter's runaway censorship and supports a transition away from Wall Street influence by taking the company private.
Also bear in mind that Twitter is not a country. No one is ruled by them, only influenced. Their methods and policies, not their internal structure, will determine the extent to which they are authoritarian. Musk could gut the board, amends the bylaws, and declare himself sole director, but in terms of political power structure, the worst you could say is that he'll have overthrown an oligarchy, and none of those oligarchs were benefiting the causes I care about, nor defending free speech or representing the 99%.
I'll have to assume you're arguing in bad faith, or our conceptions of authoritarianism are vastly different. What point about Elon's past would you make? He's lied and been cutthroat, yes. I assure you, every multinational corporate representative on Twitter's board has done the same or worse, but without visionary ambition and a willingness to oppose their own cohort.
So are you satisfied with Twitter as it exists under current shareholders? The '99%' isn't a unified bloc favoring free speech, nor are they in control. A sizable portion doesn't care or actively supports deplatforming when it aligns with their political leanings. Twitter employees are overwhelmingly leftist as well. I'll take my chances with the eccentric billionaire who's publicly ridiculed and railed against their censorship methods. Blanket mistrust of the wealthy is a loser's strategy when attempting to effect change.
For the simple reason that interests align, in this specific case. Point me to a better billionaire capable of buying out Twitter, or an organization comprised of the 99.99% daring enough to do the same. They don't exist, and alternative platforms like Gab have their own set of issues. Musk is driven by objectives beyond wealth accumulation, unlike the other major shareholders, and has demonstrated contempt for the authoritarian influence and perverse cancel culture he's now set to undermine. I'm open to being proven wrong about this - if Twitter's censorship remains as suffocating as ever, whatever goodwill he's built up will crumble away.

Musk is a disruptor and a modern day railroad baron. I would prefer seeing the chaos of his egoistic ambitions unfold than the alternative, which is a crushing inertia preventing any positive change to the platform. We need more like him in the world, generally speaking - those that aim for the stars regardless of their cynical or foolish reasons for doing so. Moonshots rarely work, but when they do, they inspire and move humanity forward.
Don't be demoralized by the French election by Ethnocrat in debatealtright
This is the realization that France's native population will eventually arrive at, but it likely won't happen until conditions worsen enough that no amount of propaganda can mask the truth, and more alarmingly, perhaps delayed until the demographic situation is unsalvageable and their homeland is lost.
Another issue is that the fate of many elites is disconnected from that of their country. If its conditions are eroded sufficiently that no enclaves of safe luxury exist, they will sooner flee to foreign refuges than take action to reverse damaging policies like mass immigration from the 3rd world.

wrpgs fail at almost everything they try to do by [deleted] in Gaming
Try Tyranny. It's an Obsidian RPG that flew under the radar and features characters that are actually well-written and interesting, including the rival antagonists. You begin with a great deal of power and can abuse it in sadistic ways, strive for a balanced and logical approach, or pursue justice. The narrative wrangles with differences of moral philosophy and the consequences of seeing them through, which are considerable. 'Good' isn't always best. Unlike the typical bloated messes attempting to stretch out play hours, it's also respectful of time and has a relatively focused, concise story.
As for your overall thoughts on WRPGs, I'm in agreement. A major issue is that the larger projects are designed through collaboration across numerous departments and target a broad audience, meaning the edge is dulled and direction is lacking. Expenses have risen too, with most dialogue voice-acted, so deeply branching trees are difficult to justify when sleight of hand accomplishes the illusion of choice mattering, for one-and-done players who don't revisit content. Of course, the minds in charge of these stories are shaped by values rampant in the West, and more specifically California, so I curb my expectations of insight when certain subjects are broached in-game.

That sort of assessment is too absolutist to me. I agree that there are many people incapable of understanding those unlike themselves, but I've also known hearts-on-sleeves with endless empathy, even for seemingly unfeeling robots, and they learn to appreciate subtler demonstrations of affection. Sometimes they're even a complementary pair, balancing each other. For example, one taking the lead in social situations and the other serving as an anchor of reason. The couple I'm picturing has problems too, but they aren't insurmountable, and their marriage has endured for about 20 years.
The single clip that shows the two sides of the conflict by ifuckredditsnitches_ in debatealtright
I'm unfamiliar with Israeli architecture and find most modern buildings to be a disappointing medley of hideous experimentation or generic monuments to cheap, rootless consumerism. There is no doubt that Europe produced the finest in times past, at least to my tastes. As far as something deeper, I don't know. Some of the most musically harmonious and emotionally evocative creations are directly attributable to Jews, in addition to endless garbage like the linked example. As one would expect of troubled artists and a troubled people. What I won't argue against is that they're partially responsible, especially in positions of power, for harming traditions that are beautiful and worth preserving, as is liberalism.
His girlfriend probably wouldn't have chosen a horrid monster for a partner.

Russia bans Facebook by jet199 in SocialMedia

Lindsey Graham--a US Senator--can get away with advocating murdering someone on Twitter, but if WE do it, we're punished. by Chipit in censorship
My immediate and overriding thought - this man is a clown, and a careless one at that. Safe public disavowal from both sides of the political aisle.
I see that inclination manifesting from a few factors, one of which being a deep-seated resentment towards the host culture and its people. Creative mockery is a way to channel that resentment and inflict damage with low risk of severe backlash. This isn't unique to Jews, though they do seem drawn to it. Self-hating whites and others do this too, while aligning themselves into progressive counter-cultural movements that attempt to tear down the traditions that they internally feel contributed to their unhappiness. They find meaning in destruction of a society that supposedly failed them, and honestly? Maybe it has, but they frequently rage at the wrong causes with all of their ugly contempt, and in a metaphorical sense (to me, anyway), choose degeneracy and death over love and life. Some grow out of it, others never will.
As a side note, Ashkenazi are more likely to be schizotypal and manic depressive. Mental illness in general is correlated with creative output, making associations that normative minds wouldn't. For better and worse. Call it a spiritual illness or a genetic defect, it's there. On top of higher general IQ as a risk factor for mood disorders, ADHD, and autism. Stack it all up into a messy pile of abnormal behavioral filth.

If Elon Musk came up with a way to upload your brain to the cloud would you do it? by yabbit in AskSaidIt
Unless there's some method of encryption more advanced than the technology used to create the cloud, protecting the sanctity of my digital brain from tampering, probably not. That and it would leave my body quite lonely. I'm not ready to leave the physical world for an artificial replacement, as whatever humanity can build within it will pale in most regards to nature. This is my assessment based on current creations like games, which can be entertaining, but their systems are of limited complexity, and none match the visceral pleasures that an embodied mind can provide, like hiking in the mountains, playing an instrument, bedroom activities, etc.
There's also the strange possibility that the uploaded version wouldn't actually be me, but a duplicate, and the continuity of consciousness won't transfer over. Meaning a new 'life' will spring into existence, while mine will have been snuffed out. Same potential issue with fantastical technologies like transporters in Star Trek.

You can broaden the desire for plain old dirty sex to the entire population, though I agree that sleeping around is normalized among gay and lesbian communities, which some lament and would like to see changed. The trans entitlement is another matter, and it's stupid for the simple reason that attraction isn't freely malleable. Get in line for that relationship behind the fat asses and quadriplegics, they'll be waiting forever.
This is an important detail to keep in mind - sexuality doesn't singularly define every LGB person. Many have the same mundane concerns as anyone else and simply want to get on with their lives, as long as they can do it with a partner they love and no difference in fundamental rights. Unfortunately, the flaming screeching type is frequently shoved front and center by a hijacked, overly politicized movement twisted by corporate interests.
As for BLM, it's funny to me how blatant they are in their hateful biting of the liberal hand that feeds them, which is ashamedly only beginning to retract now.

Yunnan Sourcing is my preference for black tea, and I've sampled almost everything they offer. Black Gold Bi Luo Chun is delightful.

I would rather focus on eliminating the societal conditions under which ethnic outbreeding is considered necessary. In a healthily homogenous nation, unsustainable levels of population growth would be discouraged, and homosexuality might even be a benefit when it isn't culturally ascendant as part of the woke agenda. The least of your concerns will be lesbianism if greater factors like mass immigration aren't ended, which at its root is demanded by globalistic, corporatized economies and the tireless pursuit of profit.
Besides that, you would need to terrorize homosexual women into heterosexual marriages, which is abhorrently dehumanizing and wouldn't lead to a happy, cohesive family unit. Likewise for outlandish ideas such as baby-making factories. Any society taking such drastic measures probably deserves to have its systems torn down and leadership removed. At best, I would support a cultural shift away from the trendiness of alternative lifestyles, which can ensnare actual heterosexuals into dabbling during early adulthood and wasting their fertile years. Families aren't fashionable or affordable, and that's what needs to realistically change.
Jared Taylor Vs EMJ Official Thread by send_nasty_stuff in debatealtright
[–]Dashing-Dove 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun - 1 year ago (0 children)
The absurdity of EMJ is that he fully acknowledges racial advantages like sprinting or long distance running ability, as well as variable medical outcomes based on ethnicity, yet when pressed over his disregard for behavioral and IQ variance among populations, his fallback excuse is that the mind and brain are separate, as if that explains anything. He concedes the truth that ethnicity and biology are related, then retreats into a corner of nonsensical mind-body dualism. This leads to a horribly blatant blind spot that Taylor and the host immediately picked up on, agreeing to drop the subject - because at that point there was no point to further discussion. The cantankerous old buffoon led them to a metaphysical dead end.
On the other hand, Taylor dances around the subject of Jewish influence like Mossad is going to snipe his head off if he mutters the wrong phrase. I don't know if he holds back for strategic reasons, or genuinely believes that they can be brought into a white coalition as allies.

Should women have the right to vote? by [deleted] in debatealtright
[–]Dashing-Dove 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun - 1 year ago (0 children)
One vote per wed family household, and how the spouses jointly decide should be up to them. No children or home property? No vote. I don't believe forward-thinking policies are as important to people when they have no future generation to care about, meaning children of their own, and they'll have less stake in local conditions and governance when they can simply end a rental lease and move.
Extended military service could be an alternative means of securing voting privilege, for people who are infertile or unwilling to have children, and don't own property for whatever reason. Committing 5+ years of one's life to the defense of a nation should be enough sacrifice.
Also, no convicted felons or 1st generation immigrants should ever be able to vote. This would partially limit the destructive incentive of politicians to support widespread immigration and the release of criminal recidivists. A corollary to this would be the elimination of jus soli birthright citizenship, so those born to non-citizen parents would no longer have it automatically conferred.
Lastly, voting should require a basic knowledge test on each candidate and ballot choice, to be designed as neutrally as possible, with bipartisan oversight and mutual agreement. Anyone who fails their test is denied the ballot. This will help to root out ignorant and lazy voters who have no business deciding any future but their own.
Is the Pfizer COVID vaccine safe? by Pink in debatealtright
Anecdotally, four family members of mine have been vaccinated by Pfizer and experienced no side effects beyond a light immune response; one had a swollen lymph node near the injected arm, all were temporarily tired and achy, two had minor headaches. Symptoms ended after a few days and they've seemed completely normal for multiple weeks now, with no lingering problems.
Keep in mind that the viral load on the body from a full-blown infection could be considerably worse, if not lethal, and Covid is likely here to stay or will remain prevalent for years. Your chance of acquiring it goes up and up, so from my perspective, why take the risk if immunization is available? The potential for long term damage from Covid has been proven, with elevated stroke risk, brain inflammation, cardiovascular and lung damage, etc.
The conspiracy about population control through immunization also doesn't make a lick of sense to me, because mRNA is rapidly used up and vanishes from the body within days, and the spike proteins that your cells churn out are gradually degraded and removed after a few weeks, leaving nothing to be latently triggered by some heinous plan. The spike protein was also examined and doesn't resemble syncytin-1 (a placental protein) whatsoever, so it won't cause infertility like some initially feared. Normal births have already happened with vaccinated women. Fearmongers need to do their research, because as an initial skeptic, I did mine thoroughly and had my worries sufficiently relieved.
The only reasons I would advise against taking the vaccine without a doctor's consultation is if you have a history of allergic reactions to injections, or if you've already recovered from Covid and are paranoid about some undiscovered long term impact of the vaccine, which I find highly doubtful but won't explicitly say is impossible.

A big flaw about white demographic change that can't be ignored. by radicalcentrist in debatealtright
Walmart has no prestige in Brazil. You'll find plenty of Brazilians who travel by plane and bring back suitcases full of American-branded merchandise, for themselves or for resale. That's irrelevant though, and you misunderstood. Everyone is vulnerable to empty consumerism when there's a void where community should be. Worse is that suppressing the racial identity divides and disables, preventing political traction to combat predators in business and finance. It blinds us to the notion of blood and soil. We don't have fully unrestrained capitalism, but yes, government is in bed with corporations that demand the best in each role they need - for the cheapest price. In other words, hire overseas and screw the natives.
Nationalist populism is an enemy that could force them to treat existing citizens better if they want access to its market. Yet, guess what happens when that market isn't worth enough for them to care, or if they can buy off the politicians and the populace is too distracted to hold them to account? That nation loses all leverage. Now, if the populace does rise up and accurately identifies the traitors in their midst, and some of them choose a violent solution, that would prompt elites fleeing. It's happened throughout history, and some among them have large noses even if they don't deserve the full blame for our situation in the west. As it stands, no one is lifting a finger except by ineffectual protests and minor rioting.
Whether or not there is collusion among world leaders to intentionally reduce the white population is irrelevant to the fact of demographic change, and that they're actively supporting that end through their immigration policies and widespread anti-white demoralization attempts. My own belief is that selfish motives are at work when hatred isn't. Leaving aside the hate, leftist politicians benefit by importing minorities, because their votes are predictable, and corporations receive an influx of cheaper labor for manual purposes or even highly specialized tech roles. It keeps the system churning for those who reap the rewards and can insulate themselves from the negative effects.
Suppressing white identity also weakens the social fabric, atomizes people, and encourages them to indulge in mindless consumerism while offering little objection to increasingly predatory profiteering and worsening wealth gaps. There's less resistance all around, more confusion and chaos, and those who already have a winning hand can hold onto it all the better when populist threats to their power are minimized. Also keep in mind that the left speaks in moral language, and they hold their disparate identity blocs together by constantly presenting a convenient enemy; the white male, the chosen sacrificial lamb whose blood and tears must flow for justice and equity. It's a smokescreen while money changes hands behind closed doors and the brown masses receive just enough welfare to stay on the plantation. They're keeping this sham rolling as long as possible before the guillotines are inevitably constructed, at which point they'll flee to the next victim nation if they can't successfully avoid a collapse or shift the blame for it elsewhere.
South Africa nearing collapse: 40% unemployment and white led secessionist movement by casparvoneverec in debatealtright

South Africa is a beautiful land, particularly the Cape. I hope those who developed it can reclaim the place and boot out the incompetent socialists who will have caused its collapse. It's sadly the case that these things require widespread suffering to rouse the population into action. Which side emerges victorious in a conflict may depend on outside influence.
So now Richard Spencer is counter-signaling Keith Woods? by tantamle in debatealtright
Do you think anyone following Keith's account is going to be demoralized by Richard calling the tweet trite? At this point, I'm somewhat embarrassed to have used this many words to discuss such a minor exchange.
More broadly, demoralization is absolutely at work by our enemies, and it's a steady barrage to grind us down from every angle. I won't object to assertions of defiance and the suggestion that blood and land are bound, which was Keith's intent, only that it's counterproductive and unnecessary to rail so hard against Richard and so-called countersignaling when the statement he's replying to is dumb and wrong in a literal sense, and while normies will see it and think - "yeah okay buddy, Ireland belongs to all of its citizens." If he were routinely a monkey flinging shit with no substance behind it, I would be a harsher judge.
Nothing is inevitable. You just have to fight like a bastard, and do so intelligently against a system and people that want you eternally silenced. On that, we can surely agree, methodology aside. I'm going to step back now, because I'm tired of defending the man. I don't even follow his fucking Twitter, nor Keith's.

Campers are missing out if they only experience nice weather. There's a primal excitement to storms, and rain showers lead to beautifully vibrant leaves and rapidly flowing waters that give a little extra oomph to the place. I love the warmth of hot cocoa and a cozy sleeping bag, sheltered from the elements but feeling it all around. Plus the shared suffering strengthening a bond when things go awry.
Being told your nation will always belong to you inspires complacency. What we're lacking are plans of action to rectify the situation, and the broad public will to see it done. Some inroads can be made politically, and by convincing others. I would suggest the greatest difficulty right now is that people don't understand why demographic change is problematic, and they're unwilling to listen, because it goes against years of social programming. Alerting people to those problems doesn't imply there is no hope to fix them, and it isn't whining. If anything, Keith calling Ireland a captured utterly subservient state would qualify as such, also claiming that the democratic process failed for them and there is no solution. Woe is me, bitch more. Richard's take is that sovereignty depends on the population actually doing something. That's how I read it, anyway.

Style of optics, then. Seeking to minimize supposed in-fighting. The examples I've seen are weak and barely qualify as such. They're strongly worded disagreements at worst, which I would expect to be welcomed by anyone seeking the truth or best way forward. The level of hypersensitivity on display reminds me of leftist snowflakes. As for normies, obviously don't go around performing a Nazi salute or anything that would provoke an immediate gut level emotional recoil leading to hands over the ears.
With that said, what use are trite expressions like "X nation belongs to Y ethnic group and it's inevitable." No, it isn't, there's no need to even argue. False on the face of it. I would rather rile people up with actual information giving them an "Oh shit, we're losing our country" moment. How bluntly depends on the audience. You'll risk alienating Twitter users with statements like Keith's just as much as by Richard's reply.
I will agree that Keith is by nature more relatable and speaks in a calm way that can pull normies in. Maybe Richard can work on that, if he cares to, but I suspect he's too prideful and internally annoyed over the state of the world to tone down his rhetoric. I don't believe in casting him aside for this, or moving on from him as your original post suggests, because he has value intellectually and doesn't just regurgitate talking points. Being challenged is important for the community.
I've heard him talk and he comes across as genuine, whatever the objections to his effete speaking style or argumentative behavior. I just think his mind follows patterns of logic that lead to occasionally fucked suggestions, like supporting Biden. If he wanted to grift, he's doing a poor job of it, and half of the alt-right seems to dislike him, so that's some truly stellar infiltration. The most worrying hunch I have is that he thrives on chaos and is too confident in coming out on top of the heap. Jack Dorsey would probably send him to re-education camp if given the opportunity, along with every one of us.
He made no such case. The only inevitability is that the Irish will become a minority ethnic group by 2050 if demographic trends continue, at which point their nation will no longer belong to them. Keith himself isn't stupid, and there is a place for positivity. Circling the wagon over a blunt Twitter reply just strikes me as pathetic, as does the obsession with optics. Lawdy me, oh dear, oh my, Richard B Spencer's being a meanie again! We might lose a boomercon from such foul behavior! Quick, someone flush the black pills, it's an emergency!

Richard 100% has an ego, but he usually has fair points as well. He wasn't even particularly rude. Calling a statement trite and meaningless shouldn't be so triggering. Keith is a big boy and can handle it - which he did, in a civil fashion. As far as the suitability of platforms for discussion, I will agree that Twitter ranks at the bottom. Unfortunately, people are driven to type where there are eyes to view it, no matter the character limit.

Lack of downvotes is super helpful, and it's my favorite change, since it reduces groupthink and encourages free expression. Debate isn't necessary, just say what you like without being a complete dick knob. Judging by your introduction, you won't have a problem. Welcome!
Keith: Ireland belongs to the Irish. It's inevitable.
Richard: Slogans like this are so trite as to be utterly meaningless. Is Ireland not an independent Republic that derives sovereignty from the populace?
Keith: Ireland is a captured state utterly subservient to international capital and its social agenda. The Irish people already voted overwhelmingly against having Nigerian anchor babies in their country.

What a feud - not. Richard has a habit of calling people out for dumbass comments regardless of their position in or out of the alt-right, and he doesn't mince words. It certainly comes across as abrasive, but I think there's usually substance to his critique, and not mere attention-seeking contrarianism, so I'm glad he's around, even though some of his takes are insane or driven by lust for power. Closing ranks isn't always the best course.
I mean, take apart what Keith is saying. "It's inevitable." Is it really? No, the Irish are losing their fucking nation at a rapid rate. Most western homelands are subservient to international capital, but it doesn't mean the people are enslaved. They can and should spread the truth, convince others, and enact political change that extricates themselves from their unenviable position. That is sovereignty, and it doesn't come unless you take it by force of arms or a silver tongue. The English aren't an occupying force in the year 2021, turn both eyes to the banks instead. Keith seems to understand this, but his original statement was simply wrong.
Is anyone here pro choice? by [deleted] in debatealtright
I am pro-choice, because it's eugenic and prevents unwanted pregnancies to lower IQ unwed mothers. The babies born would, on average, have worse childhoods than if they were wanted and planned around, with a greater chance of growing up in a broken home and engaging in crime. This is the case with or without factoring in ethnicity.
On the subject of declining overall birth rates, the main culprit I would examine is wage stagnation relative to inflation, and the preoccupation of women with careers. Simply put, babies are too expensive and prospective mothers have other life priorities, on top of contraceptive access and whatever self-interested anti-natalist cultural influence is at work.
Declining birth rates are a problem because our whole economic system is structured around high sustained growth and the expectation that younger generations will always be there to replace the increasingly burdensome older ones in the workforce. You might also realize why immigration is such a desirable thing to traitorous politicians, regardless of the impact on crime, economic opportunity for existing citizens, and culture/ethnic composition.

Calling them losers certainly isn't going to stop them. Figuring out why they're doing it and addressing those factors might. Let me posit a question - who has more to offer a rural Chinese woman, farmer Wang who will consign her to subsistence living and borderline squalor, or upper middle class software engineer Dave from Palo Alto? The answer is obvious. And no, successful businessman Chen from Shanghai isn't going to take an unmarried woman in her 30s. Dave's got no such inhibition. He's also likelier to let her do as she pleases, with fewer gender-based expectations. Essentially, her quality of life and freedom are secured with him, if not her happiness. Now what can Dave offer Susan, a marketing consultant whose income matches his own? Personality and looks matter a lot more to her, and it's a woman's market in most western countries. To add onto this, Dave's a 7 and he knows he's worthy of a girl who's at least a 6. Susan's a 5 but she's inundated with 8s. The rural Chinese woman? 9 and she can't find a fucking 4. I hope this clears up the cause, somewhat exaggerated as it may be. As for a solution, beats me.

To atheist/agnostic alt-righters by [deleted] in debatealtright
I did some quick research and you're correct. Kill the Gays was never used by the Ugandans, but by Western media. The bill is still called Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014. While not as bloodthirsty, it sends a resoundingly literal anti-homosexual message, and I wouldn't fault people there for protesting against that language regardless of the bill's actual intent. That's for them to decide, however, and it might not be worth the cost of incurring actual persecution by raising a fuss.
The Ugandans sure have a knack for awfully misleading bill titles. It's also damning of their legislature and overall society that a bill was named Kill the Gays over Kill the Rapists, as if executing homosexuals has greater moral credence or popularity than, you know, preventing the rape of minors. (edit note: bill isn't named Kill the Gays. Thank shitlib media for the misrepresentation)
Cuckold extraordinaire: Conservative SCOTUS refused to take because they feared riots. by casparvoneverec in debatealtright
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." I'm reminded of that quote in this situation. If the statement is true, Justice Roberts and those in agreement with him are placing more value on societal stability than fairly arbitrating the case, which cedes the presidency and has broad ramifications that harm the American public, not least of which is trust in elections - regardless of the extent of fraud and whether it sufficiently tipped the electoral vote. It's a sad state of affairs that I'm not even surprised by the possible moral cowardice of our highest court.
How is it Zionist or imperialistic? The people there should fight for whatever rights they wish to have, especially when they're being actively persecuted and can be executed, mutilated, or tossed into prison over their sexuality. If you mistook that line of mine as a suggestion for the US and other Western countries to dictate social policy by economic or military pressure, NO. I'm rewording it.
Wait for data once the vaccine's been introduced to the population at large, skeptically assess it, and only then decide to take it. Science works best when distrust is the default mindset, and not only among researchers. If they can get away with shitty study design because no one cares to look carefully for flaws, some will, especially when profits & grants are involved.
It's genetically degenerate (duh, no reproductive impulse), but unless actively encouraged by society, isn't a problem, because the percentage of the population that's actually homosexual is sub-10%. Morally degenerate? No. I have absolutely nothing against people who fall into the category and prefer the same gender (I am one of them), but the community in the West has gone beyond gaining equal rights to suggest warping children with hormone therapy, inculcating them with sex ed far too young, destroying traditional gender roles and the family unit, etc. These have negative effects on the broader population, leading to weaker adults who are less well-adjusted and more prone to mental & identity problems, and also likelier to support leftist political policies for social reasons.
Basically, people in 3rd world shitholes should push for the human rights they lack, and people in Western countries should accept the equal rights they already possess, without trying to dominate the culture and shove their sexuality in everyone's face, then carry on with their lives exactly as they wish to live it. They'll have no trouble from me. Oh, and I don't particularly care about marriage - just don't force pastors to perform them, because that is infringement upon religious rights. Find a church that genuinely supports you and your partner instead.

Looking around today, there really aren't that many stable alternatives with similar design, so this project you both took on couldn't have been timelier. Whole communities sought a place to regroup, and now we all get to come along for the ride - which thankfully isn't catastrophically tipping over from the load or eager to censor. I think that's how it often goes, nothing gets done until someone's finally frustrated enough that they say 'fuck it' and do it themselves. It's how I got started with game modding and learned basic coding, because I realized certain things could simply be done better, even by someone with comparatively little experience. Having that validated by others can rewarding too. I love to see my stuff downloaded and actively used.

Agreed. Against people who have such a vehement and instinctive bias against his positions, Striker's polemic is impotent. He's more effective with viewers who already accept some of his basic axioms. It's also difficult to finish a point when every sentence is cut short by haughty laughter from the other side, goading him like he's a bull.

This was a shit show. Destiny and Vaush were predictably hypercritical of argumentation without citation from academic studies, and when statistics were provided, they dismissed them as irrelevant because they're intellectually disingenuous and wanted to rhetorically win the debate. They weren't open at all to inductive logic stemming from those statistics. Striker played into it and seemed as though he hadn't prepared much, switching tactics to anecdotal personal experience or attempting to convince by prima facie observation and reason, which was even easier to dismiss. The amount of interrupting was absurd, exacerbated by the weak moderator, and caused me to eventually tune out.
