    you're an absolute melt if you believe either of those things and certainly not "very rational", you're essentially a laughing stock.

    i used to think like you, until i put in the effort to do a bit of research, now i don't know who was responsible, but the organisation to bring down the towers was certainly premeditated and intricately thought out and definitely had involvement beyond a few "terrorists" who got lucky in their ability to successfully hijack 4 planes, also i find it hard to believe so many credible experts/engineers/scientists would lie.

    but i'm not really here for a debate or to justify why i think certain things, nor am i here to be berated for sharing my unpopular opinions

    Castration does in fact affect the hormones of the ex-cons and therefore their mental/physical health, hence that's why believe the state shouldn't so readily resort to such measures.

    Nevertheless, I think it's great that we can agree to disagree. Sometimes discussions on this forum get very heated!
    likewise, a good amicable debate : D, someone already called me a "melt" haha yeah it does have serious lifelong effects, and thus only as a last resort is where i think it should be implemented

    have a good evening

    The middle east isn't our problem and we should have no part in it's politics unless it directly threatens us.

    The religious should get no special treatment that we wouldn't give to members of other ideologies, e.g - tax cuts, time off for prayers.

    The patriarchy doesn't exist and women aren't oppressed in our society.

    It's better to take precautions to avoid becoming a victim of a crime, then to expect criminals to stop committing crimes.

    Some religions/cultures are less compatible with western societies than others. Some are straight up incompatible.

    Marriage is absolutely pointless in the 21st century.

    The influence of American culture on the rest of the world is a terrible thing and America are only slightly better then the Soviet Union was.

    India had the potential to be a very great country. However the greed and corruption of its rulers did more damage to it then being a part of the British Empire did.

    People who eat meat should hunt, kill and cook a living animal at least once in their life.

    People today (ie - our generation) feel more entitled and are less capable at dealing with life because life is too easy for us. Too many of us are more then happy to give our personal freedom away to the Government in return for them to coddle us like children, so we can avoid taking responsibility for our actions.

    EDIT: oh and chocolate with raisins and nuts in it is better than plain chocolate
    I agree with so many of these

    People that say that they are not in favour of feminism don't boast about the fact that they are not feminists in order "to be cool". In reality, they show to the rest of the world that they have a lucid brain capable of processing rational thought, and the patience to listen to other people's views with regard to our world, without snapping at them and going on a rampage if other people's views are not compatible with their ideology.

    And, please. What I marked with (1) from your quote is exactly what feminist harangue is all about; if they don't like something, all they have to do is just take out their flashcards "sexist", "misogynist", "inequality", "oppression", et cetera and -at least in their petty purblind eyes- they've pretty much won the debate.

    With regard to (2) from your quote, can you write in a paragraph -as short or as long as you like- not why you think intersectional feminism is awesome, but why intersectional feminism is viable to our modern day society? I'm here to listen.
    There are people who refuse to listen on both sides tbh. You're painting your side in a very positive way when compared to feminists. Generalising gets you nowhere. Sure, some feminists may try to shut down debate by resorting to ad hominems, but so do anti-feminists. You telling me some feminists do it does not invalidate the fact that some anti-feminists do it too.

    Well what do you mean by a modern day society? Do you mean just the West, or the entire world? There's no debating the fact that intersectional feminism is sorely needed in the developing world, and one place where it is long overdue is Saudia Arabia. However I suspect you're talking about the West. Well, while things have progressed here, there is still alot to improve on. I'd say the focus should be on tackling cultural sexism, and how gender norms and expectations are percieved to hinder chances at jobs, cause an entitlement complex in some people etc.

    Intersectional feminism aims for equality likes other strands, but the great thing about it is it takes into account other groups. It's not just about white middle-class women, as is a commonly cited problem in other strands of feminism, but fights for women of colour, LGBT+ women, and also acknowledges how gender expectations harm men too.

    That's why I'm an intersectional feminist.

    Sometimes, just sometimes, it would be so much better if artists collaborated more often using their strongest talents.

    I sometimes hear songs which have great vocals but crap instrumentals, and vice-versa. :dontknow:

    - Windows 8 isn't that bad (shock horror)
    - Britain hasn't developed as much since the Victorian Period as it would like to think (I mean socially)
    - Opera is way better than modern music
    -Geeks are the coolest people around
    -Fruit is bad for you*
    Debate away

    *This isn't so unpopular any more - among the leading scientists. Turns out that humans just haven't evolved to deal with the amount of fructose we are pouring into our bodies each day. The British Government knows that the 5 fruit a day rule is totally out of date, but they're stubbornly refusing to drop it, saying that we won't understand... So think twice next time you take a bite into an apple for a "healthy" snack.

    I like megadeth, but they aren't like most americans ive met. Most americans i have met have the dumbest accent, they speak slow as if I am am idiot and cant understand if they go fast, they all seem to know everything and they all study law
    Lol Mustaine is one of the biggest Dicks in metal tbh, I'd go as far as to say he's even worse than Ulrich. If there was one type of American I would say I hated the most it would be people like him.

    People who take Computer Science are often the most judgmental people and are often extremely bigoted.

    Also, people who say that 'all pop music is ****' need to get their head out of their ass and realise that it is popular for a reason.

    I don't really like malformed babies. People like to say they're beautiful but they make me cringe. Thankfully, I've a neutral expression naturally so it doesn't show.
