Which VPNs are most trustworty, if any? Are they easy to turn off if I want to play an online game or something? How bad do they slow everything down?
Soylent Green is...your online history!
Ironically, the "House Freedom Caucus" supported this bill.
It's not just one party doing it.
The summary said,
The measure passed by 232 votes to 184 along party lines
Yes, it's one party doing it. First they changed the rules via the FCC, and now they've made it permanent. It's the very definition of "one party doing it".
The truth is that this vote changes nothing. The FCC had already revoked most privacy protections, and this vote just prevents those rules from being reinstated.
There are three assertions in those two sentences. The first and the third are directly contradictory.
But that might not indicate that it is reviewed by "your peers".
I have no peers.
I got your dimpled balls right here.
From now on, I only trust peer-reviewed Slashdot comments.
No, it wasn't. He was kicked out because his sexual proclivities include the domination of women, specifically. To quote Buytaert word-for-word:
Then he's a fucking moron, and he's going to be in for a shock when he gets condemned by the wider social justice community. Acting out Gorean fantasies doesn't mean you believe, in real life, in the subjugation of women any more than acting out Star Wars fantasies means you believe in The Force.
You are correct that traditionally it'd be conservatives making a stink about someones sexual proclivities. That has changed, and is no longer true
Conservatives still seem to be where the majority of attacks on sexual activities, especially non-"normal" sexual activities, comes from.
Do liberals do it? You'll find one or two, just as you'll find any large community has its outliers. But in reality, it's telling that the major schism that lead to the end of Second Wave Feminism and the birth of Third Wave was sex, and the degree to which Second Wave leaned towards prescribing right and wrong sexual behaviors, something unsustainable given human needs. Third Wave is known as "Sex positive", and it was the result of a sizable amount of debate involving everyone from sex workers to the BDSM community that drove Third Wave in that direction.
To put it another way: it's always been the case that the two groups have had people within them that want to control other people's sex lives. Liberals have traditionally done that less than Conservatives. And Liberals are less prescriptive than they were, not more.
Except if you are into BDSM involving fantasies of sexual slavery of women
That's right. Women and men acting out fantasies which are entirely consensual and, by definition, involve no real transfer of power, in private, are entirely fine, because nobody is subjugating anyone else.
Or you're a muslim
I've yet to hear a single so-called SJW argue that Muslims are right to subjugate women.
What almost everyone on the left believes is that simply being a Muslim doesn't mean you're deserving of hatred, that you should be dehumanized, that you should be blamed for terrorism, that you should be attacked, or that you should be forced to live in countries governed by extremists.
Kinda like we'd defend conservatives too if we were told they all inherently support terrorism, or that they shouldn't be allowed in this country if they're trying to escape a fascist regime.
Bondage, Discipline & Domination, Submission & Sadism, Masochism. (The "&"s are where the same letter is shared, not any linking of the two concepts.)
It's a generic name for all that stuff where something resembling power is exchanged in the context of a sexual relationship, in much the same way as LGBT(*) is a generic term for sexual relationships where gender/sex norms are unusual.
Within the BDSM communities, you'll find they usually use the letters "SSC", which stands for Safe, Sane, & Consensual - essentially do what you want with one another, but make sure everyone consents and that lines of communication remain open so if consent is withdrawn it can be communicated, practice safety at all times (it's relatively easy to accidentally injure or even kill someone if you restrain them, for example), and, well, snuff scenes are probably not sane.
Contrary to the grandparent's assertion, there's no opposition to BDSM from the majority of people interested in social justice - in fact, attempting to suppress someone else's sexuality is generally frowned upon by social justice types.
Did you actually ever read a peer reviewed article?
Jesus, I would have thought that putting the name of the peer-reviewed journal in the subject line would have been enough of an indication that I was kidding.
you are one of the leading denialists on slashdot
Ah, so you've heard of me. I'm also one of the leading conservatives on slashdot and a staunch supporter of President-for-life Trump.
