    Why is your reading comprehension so terrible?

    I know what the literal meaning of cuckold is ffs. What I was saying is that the word is so overused that it loses it's original meaning. I used the word 'fag' as an comparison. When I say something like

    "give me one ****ing statistic that gives evidence of cuckoldry being more of 'a thing' than it was in the past, fag. And why are you so obsessed with people's fetishes anyway?"

    I'm not calling you a homosexual, because the word 'fag' is now so widely used that few people associate it with its actual meaning anymore. It has become desensitized to us. The same can be said for 'cuck'. In both examples, the words are pretty much used to describe "something that I don't like".

    Quit being a typical ignorant cuckservative, lacking reading comprehension and spouting conspiracy theories that have no ground in reality
    I can't be bothered to read all that shite. I read the last bit though ha. I bet you buy into all of that gender bullbshit. Aka there are like 50 different ones. You do look sort of trans. Anyways transgendered individuals are mentally ill.

    Haha, you're too lazy to read ~9 simple lines of text? I'm beginning to understand why your points of view are so retarded

    My avatar isn't me, it's a screenshot from the film 'La passion de Jeanne d'Arc'. It's a one of my favourite films, which I'd absolutely recommend to anybody that's into historical movies or biopics. I doubt that you'd enjoy it though. Not enough explosions or titties to keep you focused, especially since your attention span isn't even developed enough to comprehend a couple sentences. Your time would be better spent angrily commenting 'degenerate CUCKS' on cuckold porno videos while guiltily masturbating to them and clearing your search history

    Joan of Arc wasn't a ******, and I'm not sure why you're so obsessed with trannies. I certainly don't care about gender as much as you do, since you're the one that's bringing it up and all (possibly to not-so-cleverly divert attention from the fact that you can't find a citation to back up your dumb cuckold conspiracy theory you mentioned earlier).

    But since you asked, no I'm not a liberal. Neither do I care about your gender identities. You can identify as whatever you want, I don't give a ****. It's funny that the same people who attack trannies for being different (usually the alt-right) are the same people that cry about their free speech being taken away because they can't say n***** in school, though.

    I am also interested in this. The right don't really seem to have a comprehensive uniting viewpoint on climate change (especially from country to country), so I'd like to hear what you think!

    I'm not alt-right, but I am "of the right" I guess, so here goes.

    How is climate change affecting the environment?

    It's hard to say. The global temperature has warmed by like a degree over the last century or so, which doesn't quite seem catastrophic.

    What is your definition of climate change?

    Noticeable changes on the weather patterns and climate that result in a significant change in our environmental landscape.

    To what extent do you think does climate change affects you?

    Again it's hard to say. But basically I don't think it does. It could be impacting me in some way I don't notice, but if I'm not noticing it I don't know how it can be that big of a deal.

    Do you feel climate change is an issue?

    I get genuinely uncomfortable with this topic. I'm not anti-science by any means. I think anti-vaxxing is stupid, I'm pro-stem cells and all the rest of it. I want to be terrified of climate change. But I struggle to buy it. And the main reason for this is that the doomsday predictions have been made so many times and pushed back again and again and again. If the science on this were that sound, and if climate change were the apocalyptic threat that people tend to believe, you would think that we would start to notice it by now. Even a little bit?

    How far do you think climate change is affecting the environment?

    Again, the climate has warmed one degree in the last century. It's not effecting the environment in any meangingful way, not right now at least.

    Do you think climate change is preventable? If yes, say how?

    No, in fact I think we're basically helpless in the face of the environment. If you look at the climatological data from the last few hundred thousand years, the earth's temperature is wildly unstable. We've been alive since about the second-to-last major spike in this graph, and I can only assume we weren't contributing to it greatly back then. I basically think we're ****ed if the climate changes intensely, and I can't see as we have the power to stop that happening.

    I'm not phobic. It's a perfectly rational distaste for a reprehensible set of ideas.

    Is climate change preventable?


    Ummm, since when did man have ANY sort of control over the climate, I would quite like it to be slightly overcast and around about 60-70F with moderate humidity all the time, but instead I have to put up with humid 80-90, or freezing fog, or rain the vast majority of the time :/

    Oh, and is would absolutely love not having to put up with meteorologists being wrong all the time

    Stupidly worded question is stupidly worded.

    Poorer Whites and Hispanics are more likely to engage in criminal behaviour than their middle-class counterparts, sure, but they're still not on the level of the Black community. I'm reluctant to call things racial issues very often, I'm an individualist and I think most people's problems are their own. But this is clearly a serious issue facing almost exclusively Black communities in the US.
    You're right that poor blacks tend to commit more crime, but 'socio-economic conditions' refers to much more than just wealth. Black people don't go "gee I'm poor, guess I'll go shoot a couple people". Rather, there are other factors.

    For example, population density is linked to significantly higher crime rates. Poor whites typically live in rural areas, with most blacks being clustered in cities. Poor parts of cities, which happen to be dominated by blacks, tend to have particular high crime and murder rates due to, for example, the gang activity that develops in them (it's not like you see much organised crime by any race in the suburbs).

    As a result, there is a bigger focus on these sorts of areas by the police, which accentuates these stats as you are more likely to get caught for a crime in areas which are more highly monitored. The urban police forces also tend to have more resources, and there are likely to be more cameras around. (You could note that policing tends to be based on quantitative numbers based results, so it is in the police's interests to arrest as many as possible).

    Add to all this the disproportional amount of adverse effects that still linger from racial segregation in America, like the racial motives for many arrests, and you have some examples I believe to be the primary reasons for such a significant difference.

    Besides, even if blacks were somehow genetically inferior and have some sort of baseless unscientific aggression gene (I don't know if you believe this, but plenty of the alt-right does), I don't believe that it should make any difference to an equal rights stance.

    Distaste for Islam as a religion doesn't equal a prejudice towards Muslims themselves, which is how I would personally define 'Islamophobia'. The former is much more rational than the latter.

    A dislike of a religion doesn't mean that you dislike everybody that follows said religion.

    I agree that the rest of what you've written are contributing factors to crime, but I want to make 100% clear so there is no doubt, I absolutely do not believe this. Never have, never will.

    I do think you overlook a cultural malaise in African-American communities though, one that can't reasonably be blamed on the residual effects of the slave trade. Particularly I'm thinking of the astonishing ~70% fatherlessness rate in the black community. And I say that it can't be blamed on slavery because this hasn't always been a problem. Rather, the fatherlessness rate in the black community was stable prior to the Civil Rights Act and has steadily climbed since ratification.
