"Hello. Do 당신 know who I am? Of course 당신 don't. I'm a nobody. I'd tell 당신 my name, but 당신 don't care. I'm just lonely. Nobody cares about me. Nobody cares what I think. People treat me like dirt. My opinion doesn't matter. Nothing about me matters. I try to say something, but nobody listens. They don't even try. I hate my life. I've never had a friend. I never even had a chance to make a friend. You're probably feeling sorry for me right now. But if 당신 knew me, 당신 wouldn't care anymore. I hate 당신 all. My entire life is pointless and sad. It's like I'm not even there. I never get to...

Note: It's kind of late at night so this is a bit rushed & disorganized (especially regarding the points about Depp, Rowling, and DeLisle) so if anyone needs any clarification 또는 더 많이 context 또는 would like to hear 더 많이 in depth about my personal feelings on each case, feel free to ask.

So this is inspired 의해 a recent experience that I had with 취소하기 culture 또는 an attempt at it. I have always been against 취소하기 culture mostly because I've had several bad experiences with it over stuff that was blown way out of proportion. It was used as a humiliation tactic and a means to try to kick me...

As of late, I've noticed several picks asking if it's murder if a crime is committed without mens rea. In all fairness, I'm paraphrasing, because none of these picks even mentions the words "mens rea" but the concept is the same.

For example, one pick asks if a priest should be convicted if he performed an exorcism which resulted in the link For that, I answered yes-- the priest should be convicted, 또는 at least charged with manslaughter-- but not murder. Similarly, there are link seperate link concerning the legalities of a burglar/trespasser getting shot and killed on someone else's property....

On and off for the past several years, I've been working on a bunch of 기사 here on Fanpop: interviews (so many interviews....), comic articles, reviews, and various "What is..." explanatory articles. One of the ones on the back burner has been the "What is Debate?" article, and since I haven't finished that, I have to summarize some basic points about debate:

1) 토론 is all about using arguments to support a position, thesis 또는 statement.
2) 토론 requires opposition: at least two sides arguing the truth 또는 fallacy of the thesis.
3) 토론 requires an audience to judge the effectiveness...

I'd like to start 의해 saying that this is just my personal opinion as to what a SJW is. I've come to notice that I have used SJW quite a bit on this spot and a few people don't know exactly what I mean 의해 that. So I kind of thought it'd be useful to make this 기사 explaining exactly what I mean when I use the term social justice warrior.
Before anything else; I intend no offense to anyone at all with this article. I don't hate social justice (not 의해 any means), I think social justice is awesome. What I don't like is what some people turned the movement into.

First and foremost when I use SJW...

My friend, an evolutionist, and I, a Christian, always 사랑 to spend a few moments debating with each other about evolution, the "Big Bang" theory, and religion (mostly God).

November 7, 2008, he and I started at it again on Msn. He actually put my skills to the test, as neither of us have had no high school 또는 college education on religion (so far), but I have gone to Church weekly, and will hopefully continue doing so. My friend, is frankly just extremely smart (I honestly can't elaborate on that....

Even the Joker's Had Enough Of This Bullshit
I believe in debate, discussion, and discourse. I believe in listening. I believe in multiple sides to every issue. I believe everyone is worth listening to. I believe there can be fault on "all sides," and that we can all be guilty of misunderstanding each other.

I do not extend these courtesies to racists.

Ideas are dangerous. They are wonderful and they are disastrous. They can be used and misused as weapons 또는 agents of peace. But when 당신 are met with a truly deadly weapon, giving it the benefit of the doubt and letting it do its thing will get 당신 and many others killed.

When it comes to...

link, the only feedback I received revolved around definitions of racism. Sure, the concept of reverse racism was partially what the 기사 was about, but it was also about what problems nonwhites have that whites don't face. It was also a list of grievances that need to be fixed. Those points were completely ignored.

When 당신 say that reverse racism doesn't exist, white people completely ignore the problems you're saying nonwhites face and the changes 당신 want to make to fight them. Instead, they do nothing constructive and just argue on behalf of whites. We - people on both sides of the debate...

Explaining What Makes America Great and Why We Must Protect It!

RUSH: Okay. Folks, let me get (for me on a Friday) a little serious here for a moment. I've had conversations in recent days, weeks, with liberals. Every time I mention this to you, I get, "Why are 당신 hanging around them?" Well, 당신 can't avoid 'em, and I'm not afraid of them. I like engaging them sometimes, because these people, many of them are just following a script. They've got their template, their narrative, and life is very compartmentalized and if something doesn't fit the little cocoon that they've woven for themselves...

While 글쓰기 linkI became fascinated 의해 school boards. I had been to school board meetings before the book was in my mind. They were meetings that were not too different from the one I described in fiction. They took place during the late 1970’s, at the height of a three-week teacher’s strike.

As a high school senior, I thought that the teachers were foolish for walking out on their students. I had the union president as a teacher; she used post-strike class time to pontificate the union position—and I resented it. I felt that I was being used to carry the union’s message to my parents....

An add mocking "Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week" at Georg Mason University, 2007
I found myself typing a long reply to one of MajorDork74's 코멘트 on his link. If you're too lazy to click on the link, the image is a bumper sticker which says "If it's OK to call 부시, 부시 대통령은 Hitler, then I say it's OK to call Obama Muslim."

And the general response was, "Call him whatever 당신 want, but this statement doesn't make sense... how is being a Muslim as bad an insult as being called Hitler? I'm sure 당신 can think of worse and 더 많이 accurate things to call Obama."

The Major returned with, and I quote: "Obama does a lot of things that people do not know about. How do 당신 know he does not...

Okay, okay I admit so far communism doesn’t seem to have worked too well, what with Stalin with his work camps and his unrealistic 5 years plans 또는 Mao with controversial philosophy and catastrophically cultural revolution. However firstly I’d like to argue that the 모델 cited above don’t actually correspond to Marxism in its purest sense, at all. Mao’s theory, in fact has little 또는 nothing to do with Marxism. Mao’s conviction is 더 많이 about the population’s ability as a whole to achieve anything through hard work and determination has nothing to do with the conventions of communism,...

The origin of life: During 읽기 an interesting novel about Dawkins and his theories on evolution, I discovered this particular bit. Dawkins has no solution for how life actually evolved, 또는 arose. Dawkins says: 'It is a complete mystery' (if 당신 wish to know more, read chapter 13 of The Greatest Show On Earth: the Evidence for Evolution)

I would like to point out that I have not really found a viable explanation for the origin of life, yet. I suppose that people assume it was the Big Bang and the consequential events following after, which caused life to erupt in the form of micro-organisms....

Idk if anyone’s noticed (lol) but I’m filthy mad about this election. Not just because of Trump himself, but because the whole thing represents, better than anything, one of the world’s most significant problem in recent years. We are moving away from our Enlightenment ideals - tolerance, progress, and liberty - with fanfare. Under the guise of saving western culture, we are threatening its core principles. We are neglecting the lessons of history that millions fought and died for: authoritarianism is a dangerous (yet insidious) thing, vilification of minority groups is wrong (demonstrated,...

I see the concept for Schrodinger's Rapist getting a lot of flack. People, when confronted with this idea, say things like "This is stupid. Not everyone is a rapist!" 또는 "This is just feminist propaganda meant to instill paranoia in women and make them afraid of men."

I personally think that everyone who wants to abide 의해 the theory has every right to do so. Let me give 당신 an example:

About two years 이전 I was seventeen and during 할로윈 break I was working in my Mum's office. But there was one 일 when my Mum couldn't drive me 집 and I had to get the bus. This was all fine - I was perfectly...

This is ALL made up but conversation is possable and in some cases has happened*


A woman was walking down the 거리 when she saw a man 읽기 the bible.


Woman:Why are 당신 읽기 that?

Man:*looks up* Because I'm Christian

Woman:Why are 당신 Christian?

Man:*shrugs* Because God is the creator of all things.

Woman:*smirks* Oh really? Are 당신 sure about that?

Man:*nods*

Woman:*sits 다음 to him* What about bananas? They are made 의해 people.

Man:They are?

Woman:*nods* And our words, are the words we speak to communicate to one another made 의해 him?

Man:No, but when I ment created all things I ment...

On July 11th, 여우 News' Kelly File featured a focus group to talk about the Dallas Shootings, Protests, Black Lives Matter, Obama, Race and more. This was in direct response to increasing tensions between the police and specifically the Black US population. If 당신 know anything about me, 당신 probably know how important I believe it is that people keep talking in a constructive manner in order to come to real solutions. This is why I do not like hypocrisy when it comes to tolerance. I just happen to believe in beating 불, 화재 with water, not with 더 많이 불, 화재 as I believe it only fuels it and makes...

85 percent of the time, I like to think the world's a wonderful place. we have tecnology and nature all rolled into one delicious sushi-package, we all have different place to visit and new things to learn. most of the time, the world's a very pleasent, innocent place to be. But 15 percent of the time, horrible things happen. people crash planes into buildings, tecnology is faulty, nature is being destroyed and the odd teenager sometimes drops a baby bomb on her parents and boyfriend. but only very ocassionally...

We have a lot of problems in our world. Some issues are things that would be prevalent no matter what. But I firmly believe that the main cause of the majority of problems in our world is human closed mindedness. Think of how many issues we could avoid if we could just open our minds to other ideas, and think how much 더 많이 advanced we could be. Here are a few examples of issues that could be avoided if we could open our minds to other ideas.

Racism
There are many people who hate a group of people just because their skin is a different colour than their own. But really, if 당신 think about it,...
