TBH, I think if you stand your ground and just laugh at these people for being the violent bat shit insane freaks that they are, they will get tired of throwing their temper tantrum before you do. Thankfully, since they are narcissistic losers who are offended by everything, there is always a new person to who refuses to bend the knee to trans ideology for them to target and harass

So it appears there are people on twitter who think biology is a white colonial notion imposed upon the rest of the world to make us believe in the "European" notion of male and female. We were all stupid and ignorant before whitey came along. A thread. by Susiesmum in GenderCritical

How do you overlook Ishtar tho?

Ishtar should be #1

Inanna is an ancient Mesopotamian goddess associated with love, beauty, sex, war, justice, and political power. She was originally worshiped in Sumer and was later worshipped by the Akkadians, Babylonians, and Assyrians under the name Ishtar.

Pretty sure the "satanic panic" started the trend. It was a moral panic, similar to the moral panic around childhood kidnappings in the 80's and the panic around shark attacks in the summer of 2001 I believe.

I recommend searching up Jonathan Haidt on YouTube. The guy has a couple of lectures which give a good overview of the phenomenon.

Reddit has a block feature. I don't know if this site does, but it ought to add one soon. The whole purpose of the block feature is to give the user control over their interactions with poorly behaved people.

That being said, your reply above isn't much of a counter argument. It's just feelings and speculation. Why should my freedom of speech and expression be limited because some pathetic spineless weasel can't handle abrasive rhetoric? That type of person is not someone I really want to discuss anything with anyway. Limiting my free speech already makes me want to leave this site. Catering to retards will turn this site into a shitty reddit clone and will make me want to leave even more.

I suppose this world just isn't the place for me, since unlike most of the people who inhabit it, I have principles and actually stick to them.

Only in the strictest sense.

Wrong. You prove yourself wrong below.

If all anybody posts is "you're a goddamn shithead and deserve to die" or similar ad hominem, dragging the discussion down the pyramid of debate, then they will get removed along with their posts.

👆🏼That isn't the strictest sense. The strictest sense would be to remove/censor law breaking content, such as threats of violence and the non-consensual publishing of private information (doxxing)

The raises the question: So what? People have a right to express themselves freely. This includes the right to be rude, vulgar, obscene, and profane.

It is not a rights violation for someone to tell another person to "get fucked." In fact, certain circumstances warrant a response of that nature.

In the ~5 years I spent debating people on reddit, I would regularly run into people who were adamant ideologues. They did not arrive at the beliefs they had via careful reasoning. This being the case, it generally was not possible to get them to change their mind by providing them reasoning as one cannot be reasoned out of a position which they did not initially reason themselves into.

Many a time I would refute the persons position in multiple ways. I might explain to them how it is that certain premises were flawed, how it is that their position is actually subordinate to my dominate more foundational principles, and how it is that the foundational principles can be leveraged to construct a more consistent and understanding of objective reality. At this point I would be met with abjectly retarded cognitive dissonance of one kind or another or outright denial that their position was thoroughly refuted. For situations such as that, the pyramid of debate no longer applies, since I had engaged their argument/position from the very top of the pyramid with the strongest possible refutation. In cases like that, I think it's perfectly permissible to indulge in whatever category of ad-hominem, insults, or flaming suits the situation.

This blanket rule is retarded and needs to go.

This is akin to commenting, "this isn't a free country, I can't throw shit and piss at people on the street."

It is not. See reference to rights violation above.

"This isn't a free country because I can't punch people in the face" would be akin to complaining about censorship because you cannot say "I'm going to run a backhack through your IP and steal your credit card information."

Censorship is acceptable when a rights violation is at play. It is not acceptable when people are simply exchanging harsh words in what is essentially a chat room.

Democrats DESPERATELY Trying To Stop A Biden Vs Trump Debate And Its Sad by Tarrock in politics

I honestly hope there is no Biden/Trump debate.

Biden just doesn't have it in him. He wasn't interested in running for president in 2016. For whatever reason he gave in to the pressure to run against Trump's reelection this year.

Geriatric abuse is not fucking "okay," and I have no interest in seeing Biden get publicly humiliated on live TV, even if the guy is a creeper with terrible politics.

Shame on the democrat party for running a candidate that is exhibiting early signs of dementia.

Running businesses/industries for profit allows owners to reinvest in better capital goods.

Every single business is trying to compete with every other business in a free market. When profit is made, businesses do not just sit on it and/or hand it over to the CEO. They would be foolish to do so, as the company/business which elects to purchase better machines will be able to cut their manufacturing costs and pass those savings along to the customer/consumer. This in turn allows them to out compete the business which sat on the profits or gave them out to the CEO/share holders/whatever.

Profit in healthcare allows better medicine and techniques to be developed.

Profit in prison can be monetized along the lines of rehabilitation, since there is no motive to bar people from producing economic value.

Profit in education allows for the best teaching techniques to become popularized and new/innovative teaching practices to be rewarded.

The government is balls deep in all of these industries in terms of the way they are regulated and subsidized by taxpayers.
