Re: What makes your life worth living?

I would highly encourage you to look at the world around you, in which babies and infants die painful deaths in their dozens every day, and ask yourself "why does God will this?" You will tell me, of course, that these babies and toddlers, who God deems fit to die painful, horrible deaths, are sinn...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

D who must not be named was never particularly extreme in his views. He left because he was having a very difficult time at home and vented his frustrations in a foolish attack on the site's leadership. Krellin had his own issues for which the forum and its debates were a kind of escape. Al Sweareng...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Well, you would do :razz:. The changes made to the forum back when we moved away from the old style created an environment fundamentally hostile to any view that deviates from the mainstream, where the mainstream is broadly defined by US liberal media. As this has been in place for some time now the...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

My preference, for some time, was to move away from the topic I said I liked the res evil movies and your response was "Yeah, women suck and can't shoot the guns though". Wow... You genuinely can't read something without reimagining it as having some fantasy meaning that fits your ideology. What a ...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

I have made no demands of you at all, Doom. I have criticised your enthusiasm for sexism, expressed a few of my views, and mentioned to JECE (as he seems extremely interested for some reason) what sort of arguments would stand a higher chance of changing my mind. Whether or not you wish to try doing...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Saying something exists isn't expanding the point. If she wanted to expand the point she could have said who has lowered lowered the rate of crime and by how much, and what strategies they took that might have contributed to this. How it compares with the rates in similar countries that didn't adopt...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

You don't think that this new wave of (I hesitate to use the word feminist as it doesn't resemble much at all of traditional feminism) thinking is a product of left wing philosophy? Not all lefties have been infected by the madness, but the origins are very much on that side of the spectrum. It's li...

You can dismiss the harm done to women and men by the ideological dogma of the supposedly progressive left all you want, yoyo, but I will stand for equality and treating individuals with respect regardless.

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Nice try? What are you talking about? It was yet another sexist statement after a series of others. If Doom wanted to expand on that point she could have, and it may have made for a more constructive conversation. If it was meant to be a reminder that women are considered ignorant then it failed aby...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

You can save your sexist dribble about evidence being somehow feminine for someone else. I believe that you noticed the dripping sarcasm and simply ignored it as an excuse to call Doom427 sexist. Proud of you, chap! An excuse? I called Doom427 sexist because that's what they are. All that nonsense ...

Re: War, what is it good for?

Answer: lose all land gained since the start of the war. Define "the start of the war". I imagine many Ukrainians will agree with you, but they may well be agreeing different things. One massive headache for the West that isn't given nearly enough coverage is there are now an enormous number of Ukr...

Re: War, what is it good for?

Pre-invasion it was roughly 60-40, or maybe closer to 55-45, now across the whole country it is closer to 90-5. And in the areas occupied by Russia, the hatred of Russia is very high. Though some are not willing to b'é open about it, because if they openly express anti-Russia sentiments and Russia ...

Re: War, what is it good for?

But in all seriousness, do you really think that any of these areas support Russia's invasion in the present moment? It's highly unlikely. However there's a massive difference between supporting or opposing an invasion, and how they might like the end of the invasion to play out. I suspect that a l...
