...why do people still listen to Scott Adams?
He's deluded about his self-importance, his shtick is always to appear witty by throwing a really bad argument at his nerdy audience.
He complains about marketing, and rightly so, but then blames science. WTF!?
If you learn about "science" from TV commercials and fashion magazines and sensationalist articles, guess what? You're not getting the real thing.
Putin is not an idiot.
Giving Russian population a boogieman and someone to vent their frustrations against reinforces his power.
When your "blue eyed" lifestyle will be used as an excuse to treat you like non-human, prevent you from marry other blue-eyed people or beat or kill you, maybe you will care.
Wait... So it's true?
There's actually people who believe "social justice warrior" is an insult?
Are you a status quo warrior?
Too many people here could benefit from having a look at the amount of shit women on dating sites receive.
First of all, yes, women are socialized not to make the first move and to be fucking defensive, and with due reason.
You have no fucking clue about how many of the women around you have been raped, and you have no fucking clue about how it feels like to be objectified every day.
I had no fucking clue myself and could not believe it until I started asking to women who trusted me enough.
My ex gf showed me her OkCupid inbox. It was daunting, outright dehumanizing.
(BTW yes, she does make the first move every now and then.)
I'm wasting a lot of time on OkCupid trying to write to women who are not interested in me or have to sift through huge piles of shit to even find my message anyway, so being able to contact only those women who are actually interested would be an awesome change for me.
BTW, to all the dudebros complaining about being called misogynists: Christie Mack was beaten savagely by her boyfriend and a shitload of people sided with HIM. At least admit that there is a cultural problem.
Thank you for writing this. Again, no mod points but a t least you are at 5 already.
Thanks. I wish I could mod you up.
I'm a man, I consider myself a feminist, no I don't feel threatened the slightest by feminists and feminism, I have friends of both gender that identify as feminists.
What's the big deal?
Is it so hard to consider that something is true even if it's completely out of your personal experience?
"Men too" is not an answer, because the harassment and threats that women face is disproportionate to what men face.
How old where you when you first feared to be raped? Now go ask your female friends.
A significant portion of women in the western world has endured sexual abuse and probably still bears the scars of that.
That's women that you see in your life, that you meet daily. Only they don't tell you.
Yes, men are also abused. It is a problem, but it's nowhere as common and nowhere as socially acceptable.
You don't know everything. Your perception is not all-encompassing. Your experience is not the same as those of the opposite gender.
Deal with it.
That's a good idea.
Human misery indeed.
How many suffer due to wars for the control of depleatable energy sources?
But let's talk about costs.
How much does the US spend for its military?
In which parts of the world is it deployed?
Mozilla is a pro-gay company with strong policies of inclusiveness.
Many felt that he was not suited to represent such a company.
A bit of a No True Scotsman here (you don't get to decide who really "follows Jesus" and who is misguided), but I have no difficulty to believe you are a good human being.
If you like anecdotal evidence, I am a hard core atheist and I have a wealth of friends with a wide variety of beliefs, which they keep away from me just in case.
Yes, but this makes the Bible more and more irrelevant.
If you have to interpret the text in light of the current ideas, why do you need the text at all?
So God pretty much set up Adam and Even to break a law *HE* made so that *HE* could justify to *HIMSELF* making them suffer through a reproduction system that *HE* devised?
Your God is a sloppy, sadist, horrid trickster.
