    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    It's pretty awesome that gay marriage is legal throughout the US now. I just thought I'd come back to the thread long enough to appreciate this change, since we spent so much time here examining and reexamining the issue from every angle. It would have meant something to me back then. And...

    Mega Evolutions Thread

    It would have been great if they added a little bit onto Kangashkan and Baby Kangashkan's designs for the Mega evolution. It looks really simple compared to the other Mega evolutions.

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    Why was the title added to? The purpose of my original title was to represent an unbiased platform that both parties could debate on. Now by adding a remark about what Jesus said/didn't say about gay people, it's not neutral anymore.

    Pokemon That look Connected But Aren't

    I had a theory waaaay back that Togetic and Latias/Latios were related. Because they both have that red/blue rounded triangle pattern on them. I think in a way, thematically they are connected, but not evolution-wise. Then Togekiss came along and abandoned the rounded triangle pattern.

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    I was using the term 'slope' as shorthand to refer to the progression of events, because I gathered from his description of 'fake progressivism that he was suggesting that was the kind of ridiculousness that too much unnecessary progressivism would make people demand, that eventually unmarried...

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    The thing is, gay people not being able to get a piece of paper is a lesser problem than bullying, restrictions against adoption, etc. It's definitely a lesser problem. But I don't see how this means that it doesn't matter at all. Just because we can't prove to a satisfactory degree that the...

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    Yes I can. What else is going to be a wedge issue besides something we're genuinely invested in? I don't want gay rights to be the wedge that prevents people from working together on the economy. It would be one thing if Snorunt Conservationist actually demonstrated that relenting on the gay...

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    It's a meta concept. 'Marriage' is more than the sum of a ceremony and all the observed rights of a couple.

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    The economy has been suffering for how long now? Gay rights is just one issue; unless the governments of the western world have been doing nothing but passing laws on gay rights 24/7, it's ridiculous to put the burden of paying more attention to the economy on gay rights activists. You can't...

    Ok, cartoon network is taking a turn for the worse.

    I don't think they're ruined; the only beef I have with them is their live-action programming. That doesn't seem right to me - it's Cartoon Network. And Kevin, the guy that does the bumps for 'Flicks' is kind of mindless. Usually there is some level of education or imagination in show bumps...

    United States Gun Control: Gun Control = Fascism Everybody!

    To a point it's not subjective at all. Just because you can use something in a different way, doesn't mean we refer to those uses as equal. Guns are specifically manufactured to blow holes in things. You can display them, but this is obviously a secondary thing to do with them. Guns aren't...

    United States Gun Control: Gun Control = Fascism Everybody!

    Why is it school in particular these shootings happen at? Because school sucks. It's the only place kids are legally required to spend most of their time guided by other kids who aren't generally good models of maturity, learning meaningless trends about how to act and what to like, taking up...

    United States Gun Control: Gun Control = Fascism Everybody!

    Also, the media has been wildly irresponsibile in their coverage of these shootings, probably contributing to the amount of copycat attacks happening. But I don't see Congress investigating that, or talking about regulating news coverage.

    United States Gun Control: Gun Control = Fascism Everybody!

    There needs to be a more broad-minded discussion about what guns are, what they represent. Right now we are saturated with the left-wing idea that there is no possible reason for guns besides sowing destruction and murder. This is an emotional response to a traumatic event rather than an...

    United States Gun Control: Gun Control = Fascism Everybody!

    I'm glad Cipher took this topic and not someone else. My perspective is this: getting a gun should be as hard as legally changing your gender. Maybe sans publishing it in the newspaper. I can imagine why it would be stupid to publish in the newspaper 'hey this person has a gun now'. It...

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    XD You can't go wrong with the highest gay quality! But that is very interesting. I've never heard of that hierarchy before, but it must add some very much needed perspective to the whole scene. I imagine it must be hard to be conservative about LGBT ideas and values though, because there's...

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    I had the idea to qualify it as 'predominantly same sex urges' rather than 'exclusively same sex urges', because honestly my parents raised me believing that people occassionally cross the aisle and then come back and identify as purely gay or straight again. Both of my parents had boyfriends...

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    I'd also like to point out that having same-sex urges doesn't necessarily make you gay. You're only gay if those same-sex urges have been consistantly predominant. Otherwise there are classifications like bi, and bi-curious. Of course mental conditioning would work better on someone who was...

    Homosexuality & Politics in the 21st Century

    Not true. There is a way to tell if each person is lying. That's why you get to know the people you're studying, and keep track of them over the years to see if they relapse. It's not really a matter of 'are you still gay?' / 'nope' / 'okay, have a good life'. For instance, I'll bring up the...
