Topic: Serious Discussion / Is my being a white, cisgender, heterosexual male a bad thing?

You can either accept your privilege or not. Either way you still have it.

If that’s the worst you have to deal with, be thankful. Spend one day shopping with a black friend and then stop talking. Exit the house as a female and experience the sexual entitlement. Be something other than a white straight male once it’s dark out. Because you can’t, you’ll never know the experiences of others. That’s the whole thing people are upset with you about: Instead of acknowledging that you don’t know and regularly contribute to those people’s experiences, you complain about what little inconvenience your privilege causes you.

As a white cisgendered male, you are being a bigot here. I have a number of racial and sexual minority friends, and we all get along very well. Everyone has fun together and race, sexuality, and gender I.D. rarely come up. Most of usgrew up poor, in the Midwest. I never went to college, but I got a job as a machinist and worked hard for everything I own. You saying that all white people are privileged, and that its okay to be angry at a group for the actions of some of their ancestors is very insensitive of you. Btw my ancestors are largely Norwegian and Amish, mostly arriving in America after the civil war. Everyone has different life experiences, so judging someone based on what they look like is wrong no matter what.

No you don’t, haven’t you been listening? White people and black people cannot be friends because whites simply cannot comprehend what it means to be black, same way heterosexual people and homosexual people cannot get along because they are so different. There are huge differences between races and sexualities and you are being a racist/sexist by trying to befriend them and pretend to understand them.

Just trying to predict the reply if it’s anything like what you quoted

“But Ebola will wipe out humanity” – Scare Mongering Media

The only funny thing about the Ebola outbreak is when it first stared I noticed a few news outlets referring to it as a ‘new’ super virus…

There is a conspiracy to merge several unions such as the EU and soon to be fromed Asian Union.

What is this Asian Union? It’s not mentioned anywhere in your link.

It does make sense when you think about it, China and Japan have always been best-friends and all those other countries like North Korea, just waiting for an invitation to join hands with the rest of the world.

Or do you mean central Asia? That seems even less likely they want to be in any way joined to the EU and/or the West

Nothing’s really wrong with these people. He’s become a meme. Something new and cool to follow.

Don’t forget, most of these people live comfortably in the first world, and don’t work in health or the emergency services. Most have never really seen true sufffering or horrific injury up close, so to them it’s just an abstract concept with no real meaning.

Does it not suggest an alarming lack of empathy though that just because they are removed from horrors themselves they seem to view them like fiction in a movie instead of things happening to real people

I love when people talk about other people, like they know everything.
Imo, topic should belong to offtop.

I don’t think talking about certain celebrities counts as serious discussion.
I think general problem of suicide would fit better.

That reminds me, the original topic is, why would someone with all that fame and money kill themselves?

I guess we can only imagine what a burden all that fame and money must be.

Well i find it funny as shit that you haven’t taken into consideration of birthdays :P my birthday is Jully 19, 2000 :P I’m 14 you dumb shit…. once again get your facts right.

She might have done it by killing off the more dominate life form(s) and “starting all over from scratch”.

There is mounting evidence that we are in the early stages  of a sixth mass extinction event.

If so, then yes nature is ‘cleaning house’ of all more complex lifeforms, and we have a serious problem on our hands.

Let’s just hope Homo sapien is one of the species that gives way to something better

Topic: Serious Discussion / Should shark fishing be banned?

My main problem with shark hunting is that they are killed for a very small part of the body used to decorate a bowl of soup. If they were killed for their meat in regulation and the majority of the animal used then that is different but killing a shark, or rather maiming and leaving to slowly die, just for a bit of soup décor is rather a sick practice.

It maybe ‘culture’ but once they are extinct their culture will have to change definitively so the whole “preserving culture” angle is rather short sighted as the culture could be preserved for longer if they protect the ecosystem that allows the culture to exist.

ive spoken to her about some of the problims just a few days ago, o i will kno if what ive said has had any inopacted on her, if so i hope it inproves our relationship, still need to talk to her on one other thing which i feel needs improve on, but due to a bad experience she had with her last bf, iam not sure if its some thing we can aculay improve on, but if she realy does love me in will do any thing to keep us together am sure she will try, well at least i hope so. as its the one thing thats making me feel that i have more of a really close friend that feels tat we close enough to hug in kiss without aculy beaning bf gf, if you get what i mean.

a i things were to be more active in the bed room, i would feel our bond will be stronger in i would feel less tempted to doing the ame things with some1 else, as those thoughts have came in to my mind a few times in if i did have a mate tat was up for that i would probaly take it, and am not happy with my self for thinking these things.

but hopefuly when i do talk to her about it he will listin and would want to do some thing to help our realasonship and to help make our bond better and to help me not think these bad thoughts

So long story short she’s not having sex with you as much as you’d like so you are thinking of cheating on her, yea it’s clearly love!

What you are describing is what happens in relationships. When they are new there is a lot of emphasis on the physical, then when that starts to subside then you find out if it was love or not. The two partners find a new balance that they both are happy and content with and that’s a good sign it’s love, otherwise it’s not meant to be and that’s how the very worst relationships are formed where people force themselves to carry them on while one or both are unhappy or even cheating.

What have you tried other than telling her you want more sex? Have you tried doing things for her? Maybe she’s bored of sex with you and that’s why there is less, could try making it feel more special again. Or try building on something other than sex if you truly want it to last?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Bad times versus bad memories

If by death you have your memories replaced then what was the point of living so long? May as well just swap out your memories sooner and jump off something.

This is similar to the differences me and a friend have on our view of doing things. We like to go for road trips for example and he always wants us to go as far as possible and see as many different things, even if it means we just go from one to the next without time to enjoy them because he likes to tell people the tale of what he’s done more than he seems to enjoy doing it. I prefer to do things and enjoy myself rather than rush the moment so I can get home and start remembering it (guess that makes me one of Helltank’s Epsilons)

Topic: Serious Discussion / Castoreum

I don’t get the point of this thread, people happily eat meat, organs, chicken ovulations, cover themselves in perfume containing whale vomit and drink animal lactations. Adding a bit of beaver scent to the list doesn’t seem all that shocking

As said above there are much more disgusting things in use in the food industry

Oh yea, those idiots who release lab animals into the wild, to proliferate and destroy ecosystems they have no business being involved in, really aggrivate me. Sometimes it seems that eco-terrorists really are aptly named, because they cause real, and lasting harm to the ecosystem.

Problem is, as the OP is really asking, how do you create any movement for change, without attracting the nutjobs who then procede to bring the movement down from the inside, by acting before bothering to put their brain in gear, or out of selfish overly-aggressive interest dressed up in sheep’s clothes? As the movement increases in size and power, it attracts more and more of both parties until the core group are effectively pushed out, in the public eye.

Short answer, you don’t.

Back when I was studying and unemployed I used my spare time to volunteer at an animal sanctuary. Like most things these days it has a social network page on Facebook. After open days there were normally the same complaints “if you claim to like animals, how can you serve meat on open day, it’s barbaric, you are evil etc”, once one started it was a landslide. The self righteous I hadn’t ever met in 12 months of working 40 hours a week, judging, condemning as evil, people who gave their free time to a charity, all over dietary preference.

I think the problem is that lot of the time the nutjobs that take the more extreme action are not actually people who put time and attention to the cause. They are people that take an interest in passing, then grab hold of an idea because they want to seem to be noble and doing the right thing, though they don’t actually understand fully what impact their actions may have. I would suggest there is some neurological link to social grieving, the idea you have to cry loudest when someone dies to show you cared most, and I would defiantly suggest that media, and social media has played a big role

Somehow, it doesn’t much surprise me that such is the way ya see it.
It truly is much more than that…..if ya give it a chance.

Just some people seem to think the forum is about them rather than the topic…

Living in a country that puts the criminal before the victim then I would rather have the death penalty and get rid of some of these ‘people’ than keep triple murderers around then give the £800 damages and God knows what tax-payed court costs over some lost nail clippers and fruit juice

Karma, I think we are referring to people like PETA and the morons from the OP’s video, not stamp collectors…
Stamp collectors have never thrown buckets of stamps over me and tried to push their misguided agenda to me
