Well yeah I agree we should all be as honest as possible, but there's nice way and a shitty way to say things. I'm just saying try to err on the side of the nice way as that's all you can do in terms of being inoffensive. We're basically saying the same thing tbh, which is don't worry too much about word choice, just do your best.

That's why I said to just try and pick the least offensive word and not worry. If someone gets offended then that's on them. People will ALWAYS be offended, so all you can really do is try your best and be confident you weren't trying to be offensive. No point in worrying about an issue that will never be resolved.

First of all: I am speaking of mass shootings, not terrorism, but whatever potayto-potahtoh.

Second: I'm claiming that gun laws seem to be very ineffective at deterring attacks. Whether there are guns or aren't, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference.

So, with that out of the way, you're still incorrect. If anything, terrorism is on the RISE within the U.S. Europe had a rough time pre-2000's, but since the new millenia they've been a surprisingly safe area of the world with very few, if any, terrorist attacks besides that spike in 2015 due to the Paris attacks.

So, again, ARGUING ABOUT GUN LAWS SOLVES NOTHING. THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF GUNS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MASS SHOOTINGS OR TERRORIST ATTACKS. THAT IS THE POINT I'M TRYING TO MAKE:

It's kinda hard to take something out of context when the context is literally right there. I put the sentence in its entirety for you to read and everything.

I've literally said MULTIPLE TIMES that I don't agree that gun laws should be changed. How the fuck does that make me anti-2nd amendment?

Just because I don't support cramming 100's of guns inside of thousands of schools I'm suddenly an SJW who wants to take everyone's rights away? Get the fuck out of here with that; I am not advocating to make them illegal or to seize them.

It's so funny how I'm both an SJW (according to you) while also being a racist trump supporter (according to the liberal retards on reddit). So which is it guys? Am I an SJW soy-boy or am I misogynistic nazi? It's almost like you and others just use ad-hominem attacks to cover up the fact you aren't intelligent enough to actually argue the point I'm making.

[–]Zombi 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

training is neither costly or time consuming, its about the family. if the family they come from is experienced and supports guns, that experience is passed to the next generation.

So we should only employ teachers that have generations of gun owners that have taught/trained them? You know that's completely unrealistic and asinine right?

If you look at the reality, there are FAR more teachers that don't use guns than do, I'd say probably millions. So you need to train MILLIONS of teachers, distribute (meaning PAY FOR) millions of guns, and then take the TIME to train those teachers... It will cost time and money.

being able to protect ourselves is not the bandiad, the constitutional violations they call gun laws are the real bandaids, lol.

I'm saying you SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PROTECT YOURSELF. Again, you aren't solving the issue of mass shootings at all. You aren't looking for a way to stop mass shootings, you are looking for protection for when they happen.

I'm claiming guns won't solve the issue as in my example there are plenty of countries with stricter gun laws yet less mass shootings which kinda contradicts that point. If guns deterred violence then you'd expect the places with the most guns would be the least violent, but there are countries that have much stricter guns laws that have either zero or very few mass shootings.

my entire post is on how gun free zones are prime targets of mass shooting ops.

I feel we should stop the threat of massing shootings entirely, rather than mitigate the damage from it happening. You're suggesting a band-aid for an infection while I'm suggesting antibiotics, do you get it now?

you say teachers should try to protect the kids at school, but you dont want them to have the tool they can use to properly protect them?

Because I feel that housing 100+ guns within a school with thousands of kids knowing there is a gun within every 10 ft will just lead to more shootings rather than less. I don't trust kids or teachers to handle them properly without training which is both costly and time consuming. I think it's a completely nonsensical idea from a logistical standpoint and a I think it doesn't solve the ACTUAL problem.

You are extremely condescending, yet you have no clue of what you're talking about.

I'm all for the 2nd amendment, but I'm just using a real world example of the contrary being proven. I'm talking about other countries, not the US. Gun free zones don't really stop shootings, if someone wants to shoot people they can do it pretty easily with how many guns are out there on the street. I'm suggesting that gun laws are FINE as they are and that we should be concentrating on solving the actual problem. I'm saying arguing over it is a waste of time as the issue isn't about guns at all, so please reread my post because you've missed a lot of what I was saying. I support the gun industry, I just don't think they're the solution to this problem because they are a part of the problem. They aren't the problem.

Then you'd better keep armed police on site 24/7, because waiting for them to arrive costs lives.

I completely agree and I personally grew up with an armed officer at my school throughout every year. My main issue with arming teachers is that teaching is their job, not protection (though they should try to protect the kids if they can). I'd feel better with someone who's trained and professional being in charge of protecting our kids rather than Ms. Brown who's never held a damn gun in her life.

fuck them

I mean, it kinda directly contradicts the idea you're supposing, which is that more gun prevalence would bring about less gun violence... but yeah just ignore that part and carry on I guess.

I think moral authoritarians who want to micromanage the affairs of others are the biggest cause of violence in our time.

Yes, that is a very huge issue as well and I agree with you on this. I don't think denying teachers the right to bring a loaded firearm to school is being authoritarian, though.

You can't have that because the mainstream media insists on framing it as a Second Amendment issue. Gee, wonder why they'd do that?

Cause that's what gets people angry and tuned in. Who wants that boring old "No more dead children" stuff when we can keep that juicy news flowing! Just think about how much money you can make off of exploiting dead children, man! You don't wanna give all that up do you?

Except you can't use a fire extinguisher to start a fire. I agree that guns are necessary for protection in certain situations, but we shouldn't be loading up our teachers with guns; I think that's just a recipe for disaster.

There's also the fact that there are plenty of other countries with much less guns while also having much less mass shootings (or none at all) so I don't think the issue has much to do with guns. I think mass shootings are a very complex issue and I think guns are just a single piece that enables them to happen. If guns weren't here there'd be mass stabbings instead, or bombings, or some other horrible thing to fill that gap.

All in all, less guns probably won't solve the issue just like how more guns won't solve the issue. Actually understanding the root cause of the issue will solve it. Arguing over gun laws and distribution just stalls the progress being made.

Example:

Archimedes discovering displacement of water after taking a bath would be a shower thought.

That famous Albert Einstein quote about how insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results would be a toilet thought.

I thought this was a pretty clear question, but as with everything else you seem to just loving muddying the waters. Do you have any proof of left leaning subs on saidit calling for violence? Reddit is a different site, so citing their users as a reflection of ours is a little misleading.

This is a very, very simple issue to solve. If there are calls for violence on left leaning subs within saidit that have yet to be banned then /u/magnora7 is a hypocrite. If the calls to violence seem to be only an issue within your subs, then maybe it's something YOU'RE doing if multiple websites keep banning the type of communities you tend to build.

You ever have that thought? That maybe, just maybe, you're not some helpless victim? That maybe it's not the entire world out to get you? You ever wonder if there's a slim chance that it might just be you who's the asshole? Man, what a world that would be...

Is it Anti-Semitic to Point Out That Well Over 50% of The Bolshevik Government Was Jewish? by Jesus in conspiracy

[–]Zombi 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I have no problem exploring a conspiracy and speaking of it. I have more of a problem with people claiming they're not being anti-semitic when it's pretty clear from what I've consistently seen on this site that when speaking of the cabal/zionists/globalists people are either heavily implying or straight up referring to them as jews.

It's a generalization on par with those SJW's that say white men are sexist rapists that want to target minorities. No, not all white men are like that, we have a name for those kinds of people: racist misogynists. Refer to them as such or else you'll be seen as a bigot.

I just think if you're going to literally state "the jews are a part of the cabal" which is a very broad group of people from all walks of life, you should expect to be seen as anti-semitic. If you don't want to be seen as anti-semitic, then refer to them as what they actually are: zionists/globalist/whateverthefuck. At least don't try to justify your (not referring to you specifically here) beliefs by saying you're not making an anti-semitic statement because I see that as bullshit quite frankly.

I think it's odd because from what I gather, conspiracy theorists are very set on letting us know that they are NOT anti-semitic. You guys say it's the zionists that are the "cabal" or whatever, not jews as a whole.

Ok, I accept that. Not all rectangles are squares and all that. What I don't get, though, is if it has nothing to do with jews, but zionists as a whole, then why even make a post like this?

You do realize how constantly bringing up jews when "it's not all jews!" makes you seem anti-semitic, right? If being a jew doesn't mean that much, but at the same time you guys constantly bring up how many jews are a part of the "cabal" - a supposedly evil organization bent on world domination and war - it just seems like at the end of the day it really isn't about the zionists, but the jews.

I've been told that you can be a zionist and not be a jew; ok, sure. So why do I only hear about the jews? Please tell me why it's ALWAYS about the jews?

Yeah, I'm glad you can see my point now. I'm all for decriminalization of all drugs tbh, for reasons I've already listed. I don't think it's a bad thing at all, but I think legalization is the ultimate goal.

I don't want monopolization over the marijuana industry either and I'll fight right alongside you for laws that allow us regular Joe's to open up small businesses in that market. I can understand your worries on that front, but that's why we need to focus on the actual issue: lobbying (something I'm vehemently against. It's basically a legal bribe and it's corrupt as hell).

I completely understand your worries about over-regulation within the industry as well. I agree; we should be cautious of the laws introduced and "go over them with a fine toothed comb" because as you've stated: huge companies will be looking to stomp out any and all competition through standards that smaller companies just cannot compete with (such as high fees for licensing or expensive materials required to be up to standard as an example). I'm not completely against regulation, though. I feel it's necessary to protect the consumer and the workers within any industry (see the 1920's meat industry for an example of how no regulations can harm and even kill people). I understand your fears of over-regulation and how harmful that can be for small business, but the solution isn't to keep it decriminalized, it's to fight to create a system that benefits small business and the consumer equally, while reigning in the larger corporations to avoid monopolies.

Decriminalization = I won't be murdered for smoking the kush or growing it how I please

Decriminalization means you cannot produce or sell the item. So, no you cannot grow your own weed, you can just own it. This still gives the government power to arrest you for growing a plant in your back yard and also gives the cartels (who rape, murder, and torture thousands) power.

Legalization with cronyist ideologues = It's not decriminalized stupid, ....

That's true of literally anything legalized, it's unavoidable if you live within the USA. I'm sorry bud, but if you don't like it then leave. Also, how horrible to have standards and practices! I can't just sell you bunk weed and I have to adhere to regulations?! Oh the humanity! I'm guessing we should go back to the days when the meat industry literally cost you an arm and a leg to work within as well.

Now decriminalization is great, but legalization needs to be adequately moderated and written into law by the locals and community, not by corporate lobbyists

Then fight against lobbying laws, don't spread this bullshit about legalization. Your problem is with lobbying, which I wholeheartedly agree with, yet your misconstruing it with legalization when they're two completely separate issues.

DECRIMINALIZATION IS NOT THE SAME THING AS LEGALIZATION. I'm for out right decriminalizing marijuana for a competitive market to spring up locally, everywhere. Decriminalization means, you will not be arrested, unlike legalization, where if you don't pay you monstrous fees for growing a few plants, "say hello to the SWAT Team."

Again, you don't understand what you're talking about. Decriminalization means you CANNOT FORM A MARKET AROUND IT because you can't sell it or buy it! You can only own it, which again, provides criminals, cartel members, gangsters, and every other scumbag a market to profit off of.

Please, explain my fascist thinking? Is it facsist to NOT what centralization of power through legalization with obvious cathes, but I instead want OUTRIGHT decriminalization of marijuana. Not sure what you're not getting?

Because you misunderstand your own argument and you don't understand what decriminalization actually means. It changes NOTHING about the current system and only benefits those who already own weed. You can still get sent to prison for selling large quantities, you can still go to prison for buying weed. You're still giving the police and in turn the government the vast majority of power over the situation.

My statement at the end, while slightly immature, is implying that you are uninformed about how this works and you should not vote because of that. I'm saying you are holding back progress and keeping things largely the same by voting the way I predict you'll vote.

I could care less about the bill as it has no effect on my life. I'm making the point that just calling someone a shill doesn't automatically make their point any less valid and all it does is make the debate come to a grinding halt.

Where did the post say that was the entire law?

Oh, come on now. This is such a weak argument. I'm saying that it was presented as if it was. Again, I say "here's a picture of me". You see only a finger. You say "that's not a picture of your whole body" and I say "Of course not! I never said it was!" Yeah, I'm technically right, but I'm still very misleading.

The fact that they're spending their time writing, debating, and passing stuff like this supports the OP's position that Jews have much influence over the US government, and nobody has posted anything to counter that specific argument.

Maybe it's because the jews have had people like you and OP insinuating that they're evil warmongers who rule the world behind the scenes? This isn't new either, this is centuries of hate thrown at them. They're the only group that is hated to such a degree that one of our largest atrocities, Hitler's attempt at genocide, was committed against them. Do other groups deserve the same laws? Yes, but I can understand focusing on the jews.

There are very many people who HATE jews all over, I've seen them. Certain people may not like blacks or the spanish, but the jews get a different kind of hate. They're the only group of people I've seen universally despised all over the world. The second would be black people.

I'm disputing that just because someone follows more mainstream beliefs doesn't automatically qualify them as a "shill". The word shill is used to discredit someone solely based on an ad hominem attack. No matter what anyone says it will not matter as long as they are a shill. Hence there's zero counterargument when you label someone as a shill. It's anti-intellectual.

If you're truly right in your stance then you shouldn't have to resort to name calling. Whether someone truly is a shill or not should have no bearing on what the points they're making. If their points aren't valid then it doesn't matter who they are or who's paying them, you should be able to rationally argue against them.

Imagine if I just said "Oh you're just a conspiracy theorist, I don't give credit to anything you say". I might joke a bit or laugh at you, but I sincerely try to level with you guys and I do try to hear you out. It's lazy to just discredit someone and name call because they believe something you don't.

Well we totally need to design the system so people cannot take advantage of it. That's literally the core principle of the best systems: make it idiot proof. It's a horrible idea to just trust random people to do the right thing, eventually they won't and that's where things go wrong. It's very easy to just not go near the edge of a building, but we have guard rails for the idiots who just don't get it. Same goes for any design; if a human can fuck it up in some way they will fuck it up in some way, intentionally or not.

I think the clear distinction here is between advocating for something and passively watching. Sanctioned suicide isn't advocating for people to commit suicide, it's supporting those that have already made the decision. Watchpeopledie is also passively watching death, not advocating or trying to incite death.

The clear difference in u/magnora7's judgement of these three subs is right in his post:

Neither openly advocate violence

Please notice neither ADVOCATE violence, meaning none call for others to commit violent acts. From what he said, s/PhysicalRemoval was openly calling for violent acts. I don't really see how there's confusion here, he said it pretty clearly already...

So, if someone just so happens to have an opinion that is counter to yours, they're a shill? You just dismiss everything they say no matter what?

/u/wizzwizz4 and I seem to share a lot of the same stances, am I a shill too? Is everyone who doesn't believe the jews run everything a paid for shill? You realize that is an INSANE amount of money to pay merely to try and convince you to believe the "globalist narrative", right?

When people have your beliefs there is ZERO room for discourse. There is ZERO room for the pyramid of debate and it goes against everything this site stands for. You've ALREADY made up your mind and your position, no matter how much contrary (factual) evidence is provided, will never change.

You must understand how it's nearly impossible to have a debate with someone like you due to this, right? I'm not going to try to convince you of anything, but I do want to say that you're stunting your own growth as a person by being this way.

Let the kid jerk off, I could give a shit less. There's a huge difference between letting them jerk off in their own privacy and caring so much about it that you buy them a sex toy.

We care that other adults want to buy a kid a fucking dildo, we could give a shit less about if the kid is masturbating. There's a difference between saying masturbation is ok and buying someone a goddamn dildo.

Edit: Just thought of the perfect analogy. It's like saying buying your 16 year old shots is just like telling them it's ok to drink because they can't control that. No, it's not OK to buy your kid liquor, it's fine to be reasonable though and not punish them for doing something everyone else is doing (drinking).

People saying he should buy his child a sex toy are completely missing the point. He's not "repressing her sexuality" by not buying her a dildo, what the fuck. The kid can use her hands just like every other kid her age. Sexually repressing her would be making her wear a chastity belt. How fucking weird do you have to be to think giving your kid a sex toy is in any way OK? Let alone a 12 year old. This is exactly why I left reddit.

Imagine buying your mom a dildo. Imagine buying your dad a fleshlight. It's sort of crossing a line. Again, I just wanna reiterate that I understand 12 year olds are learning about this stuff and sure, maybe a talk is in order. There's a mountain of difference between speaking to your child about safe sex and masturbation and buying them a dildo, though. The kid isn't going to be traumatized by having to resort to showerheads and toothbrushes. She'll be fine without the dildo meant for adults that are 18+.

If you show me convincing evidence (not conjecture) that they are mercenaries for the U.S. then I'll change my tune, but all I've seen is stuff like what's in OP: very loose connections. Like how OP uses toyota trucks as "evidence". Yet there's no evidence of who supplied those trucks to them, we just know that they're made in Texas. It's one thing to assume and form the opinion that they U.S. supplied them, it's another to have verifiable evidence that they did.

What is intelligence to you? Does a genius need to be intelligent to be considered a genius? by Zombi in AskSaidIt

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

I feel everyone is a genius when it comes to something. I don't believe you need to be "smart" to be a genius either as I've been proven wrong on that front. I think intelligence comes in many different forms. To me, our definition of what makes someone intelligent is very narrow and doesn't take into account its many forms.

As an example, it's like saying "blue" is the only thing that is a color. So in order for anything to be considered "colorful" it must have blue in it, when in reality there are far more colors than just blue. There are colors we can see and are used all the time, then there are colors we have no way of truly "seeing" like ultraviolet and infrared light. Yet even if we can't see those colors, they're still there and they're still just as valid as other colors.

I feel that genius is creatively applied intelligence. If you are intelligent in an area and you apply that intelligence in the right way, you are then a genius. Of course there are tons of intelligent people who apply it in the completely wrong way. Now what is "the right way"? I don't know, really. You just know it when you see it, there isn't a concrete definition for that.

LOL.

Good job refuting my claim with... nothing?

Check the child mortality 300 years ago, you give the wrong number,it's not 80%.

Obviously I'm not quoting a direct statistic here. If you REALLY want me to then I can, but it's a very well known fact that both abuse and mortality was MUCH worse 300 years ago compared to today. The statistics of life expectancy are skewed so far down BECAUSE of infant/child mortality. If you lived to adulthood it was very common to make it into your 60's and even older.

There is no daycare at that era.

Yes, because children were doing hard manual labor when not in school, if they even went to school in the first place. What is better for a child, gaining an education or working your hands to the bone in a rye field?

LOL. We live longer, but not healthier.

That's completely up to the individual. You certainly have the option to eat MUCH more nutritious food in today's society than even 50 years ago. Nobody is forcing anyone to eat McDonalds every day. On average height and weight have increased due to our food being much more nutritious than 300 years ago. This is, again, a fact. The fact that people CHOOSE to eat worse doesn't mean that our food is actually worse, we have the much more variety and nutrition within our food than we had back then.

Beware feminist attack for saying this, Rockefellers funded tons of money for it, but it's the choice of most people.

So you're saying feminism is making disconnected children due to women being empowered within the workforce and this was all funded by the Rockefellers for... some reason...?

You lost me on the last part. The reason women are entering the workforce and working longer hours, while encouraged by feminism, is mainly due to higher divorce rates and wages not keeping up with inflation. Single mothers are much more common now and they need to work twice as much to earn the same paycheck they would make 40 years ago. Not sure how the Rockefellers fit into that...

(the 140-characters design make sure everyone who had dyslexia can read it), and Instagram, which is most dyslexia user-friendly. It makes them dumber and dumber.

That's not how dyslexia works at all and you can be dyslexic while also being very intelligent. Twitter, instagram, and facebook are meant to be concise and easily consumed. There isn't really a relation to someone's intelligence and their social media usage, but there is towards their mental health. Using social media has been proven to cause/exacerbate depression/anxiety.

Before the first industrial revolution, people have to have more and more healthy children for farming, they got the most benefit for having more than healthy 10 children, they have no dare to treat them bad since bacteria and viruses can kill them easily at that era, they thought their parental investment is rewarding in future.

Yeah, tell that to all the child labors laws that were passed and constant physical abuse within households. They had 10 children because 8 of them would die before the age of 12. The population didn't explode until the baby boomers, which brings us to....

After the first and second industrial revolution, it's still rewarding, but the early investment is higher and higher to create a qualified workforce, they started to cut down numbers of babies.

The third industrial revolution: the environment changes too fast, they don't know what they can get from the child in the future, with tons of child abuse.

There are less kids being born because condoms and birth control are more prevalent and medical treatment has improved greatly. There's MUCH LESS child abuse today than there was 100yrs ago. You used to be able to hit kids with a fucking paddle in the middle of class. You would be thrown in jail for that now.

The fourth industrial revolution: robots gap all the job," what the hell I have to take care of my generation Z child? I should work more for myself, the wage is the reward, parenting =no money rewarding."So you can see they use different ways to cut down the time of parenting, and warning each other don't use too much time to take care of their children as a wise option, many "heroes" on TV dramas showing they have the dreams they chasing and leave their under 10 years old children. (I thought it's a huge plot hole that such a person with such lack of caring personality, how can he being a hero?)

Again, we have LESS children because as people become more healthy and educated, they are much less likely to do irresponsible things such as having a child at 16. Our population is fairly level currently. What is your obsession with having kids? We don't need to be CONSTANTLY growing in population size like a goddamn cancer lol. We live longer and healthier lives and so do our children. There's little need to keep popping them out.

That said, I do agree that there are major problems with our current society as a whole. I think you're right about a lack of connection between parent and child in modern society. I also think social media is a cancer on the mind capable of a lot of damage. I just disagree with your interpretation of how social media affects us and the reasons for why we are more disconnected as a society.

[–]Zombi[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I look for the merit of what I'm feeling; I mean a 'feeling' is just a signal to the brain; interpretation, and ranking of that signal is a function of reasoning; the stickler though, you need critical thinking skills(seriously not being mean, but most people? LOL) to beneficially interpret said signal.

I don't mean it like that lmfao! I mean like, say, abortion for example. I feel that a womans body is hers to deal with as she pleases, so I'm pro abortion. Yet, I also think in the back of my mind that when does a human become a human? Where is the line there? I can't help but think in some way it IS murder because that baby would have become a full person if it was aborted. So these two feelings conflict and I don't exactly know how I feel on the subject. Saying it's fine makes me feel bad for the kid, but saying it's not goes against my principles. Do you see how something like this is conflicting?

Of course there is depression and anxiety type of "feelings", but I've been dealing with that for more than a decade now. The only reason I can even deal with them now is because I had to realize a long time ago that those feelings were just chemicals and would pass sooner or later. It's hard to stay on top of, but after a looooong time struggling with it nowadays I'm much better at telling myself that.

I can see what you're saying. I use the word "love" a lot because I've always been under the impression that those you love would know you the best, but my main point is I just don't feel "connected" to others. I like other people obviously and I am able to form bonds, but I just feel like it could be more. I don't know how I can make that bond "deeper" though.

I just feel like I'm missing something, you know? I feel like I should be feeling a certain way when I'm not and maybe that has to do with your last point:

Maybe, like maybe because i don't know, to open up you might need to know yourself a bit more. Helped me out.

I struggle with this so much as I get older. I just don't know what I can do to understand the person I am any more, you know? How do I know when I've comprehended myself fully? Will I ever? There's been times when I've thought I've known who I was, but I always end up doing something (sometimes a good thing, sometimes a bad thing) that shows I'm capable of much more than I knew.

Sometimes I'm in a situation where I have thoughts/feelings that contradict eachother. How can I say I know anything about myself when I don't even know how to feel? It all just gets so confusing and the deeper I think about myself and my wants/needs/thoughts/past actions the more "lost" I get. It doesn't help that revealing those parts of me, the parts that may help others get to know me better, feels somehow so vulnerable. Maybe that's my issue? Maybe I'm afraid of being taken advantage of by letting others in?

I agree with your 3rd point, but I feel you're completely misreading his point in the first 2 quotes.

He's not saying he wants this place to be a left leaning liberal paradise. He's saying he's worried the users kicked off reddit (who are much more likely to be right-leaning) will drown out left leaning stances. He's actually advocating for free speech and equal representation, while it seems like you're advocating for censorship with how your response amounting to "If you want more left representation then you should just leave." If he had said "We should promote those with left leaning views" then you'd be correct, but he isn't and you're not.

He's not advocating to silence the right or dissenting voices, he's advocating for more representation for the left. You're actually the one advocating for censorship/anti-first amendment rights right now...

They auto banned anybody who posted there regardless of context.

Whenever I see people say shit like OP I always roll my eyes. I'm sure it happens, but it's not likely. What is likely is that OP was acting like an asshole or said some really fucked up things and labels it a "dissenting political opinion".

This was a great documentary on the competitive gaming community, weird how they kept showing some weird clear rock when talking about salt, though.

Not too up to date on mods, but tekkit is always great. I highly enjoyed thaumcraft as well.

Beautiful bass! How much did it weigh? Seems about 7-8lbs from what I can see.

It was an amazing commentary on the 2016 presidential election. Completely captured the atmosphere of that era and was a stunning recreation of the terror it brought. Great movie, 10/10 can't wait for the sequel: The Happeninging.

Well of course, the website looks like it's straight out of the 90's! Either way, the substance was already there and has been for years. It's not a bombshell, more like a re-release.

Don't worry, the website design makes that blatantly obvious lmao.

Seems like an ARG. Cool find, most likely some web series is linked to this site.

Where is your logic at? How does masturbating lead to a mediocre life? Please, connect those dots for me as I cannot possibly see how a good life and masturbation are mutually exclusive. Do you have any proof of what you're claiming? Or do you just have opinions...?

At least that paper has actual sources and people with proof of their education backing it, unlike you. You're just some random internet person, how do I know YOU'RE not a government shill trying to oppress natural human desires?

I think you see my point lol. If there was some actual discussion to be gained from porn then I'd be with you, but we can have many discussions about porn without it being on the site (this thread is a brilliant example of that). It's just not worth the risk/effort for how little it would actually contribute to the site's goals.

Yeah, I didn't mean to drag autistic people through the mud there; just clarifying what he said is all.

Well I'm not against porn per-se. I just think the reasoning of "it brings about novel discussions" is a bit bullshit lol. It's to jerk off too and NEVER in my life have I walked away from a porn sub/site and thought "Wow, I really had a thought provoking discussion there." I've always walked away satisfied and ready for bed, though.

There isn't a "no nudity" rule, there's just a no porn rule. You want to discuss the human body and it's nude glory? I don't think magnora7 would be against it.

You want to post a chick getting DP'd in "Big Black Cocks 5"? Yeah, I don't think that will lead to any kind of meaningful discussion. This is a site that's set on meaningful/dense encounters with thought put into those discussions.

Again, I just wanna say I have no problem with porn. I watch it all the time; love the stuff. I just think it goes against the goal of the site and doesn't spawn much meaningful discussion beyond "nice tits".

Pro nudist sites, sure. We're not talking about nudist sites here, we're talking about porn. Again, lets be real. You go to pornhub and you sincerely believe it's the same display of nudity as a nudist colony? You really think they're the same at all? We're talking about pornography not nudity in general.

I personally don't see much of a problem with porn, but lets be real here:

Ooh! If you love the human form, you can discuss the unique features of any part of the person's body. :3

We ALL know this is bullshit. There's no actual discussion within porn; at least none that is thought provoking. You're masturbating, not writing up a lecture I mean come on now.

Are there thought provoking discussions about porn? Sure, but I've NEVER seen an actual well thought out debate on gonewild or pornhub or any blatant pornographic site/sub.

Lets not act as if the creepy guy talking about a chicks ass is trying to start an open discussion on the female body. Can't make much of an argument when you're stroking your dick with one hand and typing with the other.
