  • Chaney, Pence, Trump, Schlaffy, FOX news, Limbaugh, Coulter etc. No body does bullshit artistry better than them. They could convince thousands overnight that the sky is green or that there is a anti-Christian police force in New York. I am in awe at their ability to know something is pure bullshit, repeat the same lie endlessly…in the face of p…[Read more]

  • If people are that easily offended

    Being easily offended is a pretty strong assumption based on a video in which most of the comments don’t even mention “offended” at all on a topic that most people here have never suffered any problems or discrimination or pain over. Some LGTB victims have had it REALLY bad, especially if they have been endlessly…[Read more]

    Yes Unseen you are totally right. When academic research begins to support ideas you don’t like…you can always start finding flaws in it. I personally remember the first time I questioned research methods I never question otherwise, when the results went against everything I believed. I also like how, once, when I was horrified to read research…[Read more]

  • I’m not sure I fully understand why people would be offended by Taylor Swift’s actions

    First I’d recommend watching the video. Forget that its a terrible song. I think I counted just about every positive and negative stereotype I could think of after 90 seconds. Watching the lest was painful. I wasn’t particularly offended but my eyes rolled and…[Read more]

  • The Discovery Institute will takes its fight against atheism to a new YouTube channel. The comment section is worth a read just to see how impoverished religion leaves the human mind.

    The day that comment sections are banned into the bin of “terrible ideas” the world will become, over night, a much much much better place. A little of its lost…[Read more]

    Because they’re smart enough to know not to fuck with China LOL! To me at least that’s blaringly obvious.

    It’s not that simple. China has grown militarily but they hardly have as much intellligence capabilities nor the kind of illegal special opps or surgical strike experience as the united states. The point is, Al Qaida fucked with the US and…[Read more]

    It might be time to change jobs and get a fresh start with another employer.

    It reminds me of someone who told a gay friend who was discriminated at work “just go find another job where they are less homophobic”. It was the guys dream job where he invested a lot of sweat, hours, dedication and passion…but yeah…abandoning what you’ve built for…[Read more]

    you can’t just look at this stuff in black-and-white

    Ivy that is such a ridculous example. Work place seniority can easily be controlled for in statistical analysis. As can pregnancy as well as a long list of sterotypes that claim women are: less educated, less ambitious, less self-sacraficing, less dedicated, less cooperative, less intelligent a…[Read more]

  • The left-right spectrum is, as it is for the most part in Europe, the manner in which you sit various parties in the assembly. It ranges from hard core communism/anarchism to fascist white-supremacist. It is an extremely difficult spectrum to apply in some countries because first you have to pick which core value is most important when placing a…[Read more]

    In Chinese Xing Xiang, a Turkic Muslim region there is an extreme attack on Islam by the communist government who go as far as banning beards, disrupting prayer and putting millions through brain washing camp to erase Islam…at least as much as possible. The excuse is “radical terrorism” but that’s bullshit considering they don’t do the same in…[Read more]

    There are some fairly bat-shit insane hotspots in the world right now (let’s exclude North Korea for obvious reasons). The places where the most outrageous laws are enforced, where mob violence and honour based cruelty is common cover countries from Senegal to Indonesia and most are quite culturally distinct. They are: Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria,…[Read more]

    Who is up for some dead baby jokes? They’re my favourites but some of my friends plug their ears and go “la la la la la”.

  • Davis replied to the topic Why does college cost so much? in the forum Politics 1 week ago

    Expensive universities is a phenomenon seen in mostly Anglo-saxon countries and even then the differences are enormous. A Canadian or Irish university isn’t dirt cheap but there is a limit to how much they can charge. I think the average in Canada is $5,000 USD a year which incudes the best and most prestigious universities and several poitical…[Read more]

    Pope my question was extremely specific and very local. Would you vote in a referendum to rectify problems in wage gaps where age or pregnancy is not an issue and productivity is the same. I didn’t ask if you supported affirmative action or universal wage fairness. This referendum would happen wherever you personally live. You can vote yes or no…[Read more]

    Ivy I don’t know what your answer actually is. Would you try to rectify a wage gap that is objectively demonstrated? Yes or no. Maybe is also allowed. But “there are more important things to worry about” or listing speculative theories of why it might happen (totally irrelevant to a discussion on a case where something objectively demonstrated,…[Read more]

    As about comprehensive as you can get is a meta-meta study of meta-analysis andatheir own meta-analysis  done over several decades which rigourously control various factors which people usually use as excuses for why women who are equally productive make less than men. The result is: things have gotten better, which points to a recognition of the…[Read more]

  • Aboslutely love the straight pride video. Helarious.

    Every day is straight pride day. While I am sure that there are occasional unfair and quite rare “pick on straight people” days, beat up a straight couple days, kick your straight kids out of home days or “don’t give that breeder a job” days. I’m not sure that it’s really necessary to get…[Read more]
