The amazing spin on wikileaks and how the public buys it 31 Extended Discussion 9/7/11 10:45pm
tererun the spooky
Sorry if this is a bit off-topic, but your description of why Assange has been accused of rape is absolutely wrong. http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2010/dec/17/julian-assange-sweden (Trigger Warning: description of sexual assault) According to the statement, Miss A then realised he was trying to have unprotected sex with her. She told police that she had tried a number of times to reach for a ...

Do foreigners make better Americans than Americans? 94 Extended Discussion 8/11/11 6:07pm
Riviera de la Mancha
I think so, but not for the same reason. It's not that they love it more, it's that they do more. People who were born here seem to take it for granted. People who had to earn their citizenship seem to know and care more about this country. I hear people say that they're proud to be Americans but I always just feel lucky. I didn't have to do anything to become an American. I was just born here. ...

Modern Feminism Is Crashing in the ******** Ocean 207 The GD 5/8/11 2:35pm
Critique of Pure Reason
I did actually trim them down a lot. The FAQ pages I linked were specific answers to some of the vague claims he was making, debunking myths and explaining misconceptions that he expressed belief in, and general explanations that would explain the concept to him. All of those pages are fairly short and to the point. My first post here had six links. Later, I trimmed it down to five and gave a ...

Is it possible to be an Atheist who believes in astrology? 21 Life Issues 5/10/11 6:45pm
SakiOhMa
Yes. An atheist is just someone who doesn't believe in a god or gods. Technically you could even be in some religions and be an atheist because those religions don't necessarily believe there's a god. It is strange, though. Atheists tend to be pretty skeptical in general so most don't believe in astrology or stuff like that.

Modern Feminism Is Crashing in the ******** Ocean 207 The GD 5/8/11 2:35pm
Critique of Pure Reason
The whole thing, basically. You kind of just ramble on in your OP insisting the same things over and over, and I haven't really seen you address them in the thread. When you do it's very vague. Some of your unsupported/unclarified assertions: Facts are ignored Dissent is condemned Presumption of guilt on men Seeking to elevate women above men Treating women as perpetual victims Modern ...

Modern Feminism Is Crashing in the ******** Ocean 207 The GD 5/8/11 2:35pm
Critique of Pure Reason
You haven't actually provided evidence. You've basically just insisted the same thing over and over again with a few very vague examples that you don't clarify or show evidence of. Yet you're making some huge claims about a movement that I happen to belong to. I'm telling you that I simply do not see these things in the feminist movement. You should be able to point out some specific examples ...

What do you think of Portal and Portal 2? 6 Gaming Discussion 5/4/11 10:14am
Toxic Paradox
Good idea. You really don't want to skip the first one. I love both games and I can't really say I liked one over the other. They were pretty different.

So Osama wasn't a Muslim? 41 In The News 5/6/11 9:02pm
DomaDoma
So, if I understand correctly, you're arguing that Osama Bin Laden was a Muslim leader because he was both the leader of a group and a Muslim?

Critique of Pure Reason
You know you haven't supported anything you said in your OP, right? You made blanket statements and backed up exactly zero of them with evidence, examples, or details. If you're going to argue that feminism is wrong and a failure and yadda yadda yadda you need to back it up. Those are some pretty tough charges and I think that you owe your audience an explanation. Especially the feminists in it ...

DomaDoma
I don't recall him saying that, actually. ="Barack Obama"]As we do, we must also reaffirm that the United States is not –- and never will be -– at war with Islam. I’ve made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam. Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims. Indeed, al Qaeda has slaughtered scores of Muslims in many ...

I'm a little sad that I can't go today. I just moved to Hawaii from San Diego and one of the things I miss is Comic Con. Another thing I was disappointed in is that interesting tours don't come here often. Oh well. Thanks for coming to visit fans in the middle of the ocean!

Religion: Weapon, or Tool? 18 Morality and Religion 4/5/11 7:18pm
Immaculatetrol...
"Every tool is a weapon if you hold it right." -Ani DiFranco It can go either way. I don't think that religion is a good thing overall. I don't think that much good can come of people using obedience rather than consequences ("does this hurt or help?") as their basis for morality. BUT, for some people religion has made their lives better. Some people are inspired to do good because of it. So re ...

Discrimination Against Women (or: Why I am a Feminist) 10,654 Extended Discussion 12/29/12 7:28am
lumnata
guardian.co.uk | Radical feminism: what it is and why we're afraid of it This article talks about how stereotypes about feminism keep people from listening to feminists. Research suggests that, in the popular imagination, the feminist – and the radical feminist in particular – is seen as full of irrational vitriol towards all men, probably a lesbian and certainly not likely to be found b ...

New Abortion Bill Redefines Rape 86 Extended Discussion 2/4/11 3:46am
PhaedraMcSpiff...
I have. It's very vague language and very short. It's kind of like it's just thrown in there to make the bill look more palatable and doesn't really seem sincere. I'll quote it verbatim: It does specify "forcible rape". It also allows for exceptions for the woman's life but not for her health in general. So if there's a good chance you would be disabled or injured for the rest of yo ...
