  1. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be supportive and protective. Just don't hold them back is all.
  2. True equality comes from people accepting one another for who they are and also fairly dealing with one another -- you don't necessarily have to like them but you shouldn't oppress others(even if its just mild bullying) because they're not to your line of thinking. That isn't right. One of the most obvious examples of this is gay marriage. Why can't gays get married? Why can't gay couples have children? Because conservative policy dictates that they don't have the same rights as everyone else even though in reality, it shouldn't interfere with their sets of beliefs or desires for life and happiness, so why stop them? Obviously in extremes cases(murderers, rapists, etc) there can be no middle-ground because one deprives another of an essential freedom.
  3. It's a general term used to apply against a male dominated society.
  4. ...Still not getting what you're saying. ):
  5. Repeat that, couldn't understand it.
  6. Conservative values also teach hatred against gays and anyone not counted among their own. Not saying core, meaningful tenants aren't without merit by any means but they tend to be taken to extremes or obscured in silly ideology. I like men and women -- should I get with a woman? I would want her strong, independent, someone that adores me cooking for her and questions my motives and thought processing. She will have just as much say as me in our relationship if not more. Because I wouldn't take the "role of the man" and "put her in her place" I'd be judged poorly. Should I get with another man? I'd probably be strung up and hung in a conservative society without a proper sense of counter-balance, let's be perfectly honest here. You're the same people that will make abortions illegal but then turn around and condemn gay couples from raising adopted children when inherently the amount of children up for adoption would go up and we already have problems with that as is. Even though most evidence out there(and common sense for that matter) points to gay couples making just as good if not BETTER parents than their hetero counterparts. I can attest to this from personal experience. Conservatism unfortunately, while withholding some wisdom, is a patriarchal political concept in of itself. It is largely outdated and often contradicts its own thought processes. We're not going back to that, I can almost guarantee it. Especially if what people desire is social freedom to pursue who they really are as an individual.
  7. The idea is more to the effect that we as males have utterly failed and not just in politics but in raising our children and setting standards for our communities. We've long held sway over what goes and doesn't as norms/standards. As a result there is still a strong sense of pointless hatred towards gays, more effeminate men, and more masculine women as they go against the grind, they go against the patriarchal expectation set forth. We need to spend less time thumping our chests and more time smelling the roses while supporting the people we love -- and no, bringing home "the bread" doesn't quite cut it. That's part of the equation, not all of it, not even close. This is a new age and we need to evolve to meet it.
  8. I hate to say this but all I'm hearing is a bunch of capitalist propaganda that blatantly ignores a myriad of factors. Like for instance... A minimalist lifestyle is being able to buy a junker car. Being able to have a junker apartment with some kind of roof over your head. Having some kind of healthcare coverage so you don't croak the first goddamn time you come down with something. To have enough money to buy some food and some clothes when necessary. Basically things of necessity that many jobs out there can't provide. So what do people end up doing? Working 2-3 jobs instead of 1, wasting away slaving for assholes who don't deserve that kind of toil for what they're paying out. Guess what? They ain't got time to go to school. They ain't got time do much besides bust their ass and survive. Hell school a lot of the time is a good way just to get in a huge amount of debt if you don't know what you're doing. So unless you've got assistance or made ALL the right moves earlier on in life and had the support structure of a functioning family unit, you're probably screwed and stuck in a self-perpetuating cycle that is only getting worse with each passing year because let's face it... RICH MOTHER FUCKERS DON'T WANT YOU TO SUCCEED AND THEY SURE AS HELL DON'T WANT TO PAY YOU. So let's stop bullshitting ourselves and stop pretending that things aren't so bad. That the greedy somehow aren't inherently greedy and here to screw you. Then we might be able to have a real discussion.
  9. Corporations and businesses do make jobs, the people who start them do take risks, etc... all true. However, they DIDN'T do it alone. From every pawn to every knight at their disposal, they have all helped to build that company into what it is. Corporate entities tend to forget this and they owe it to their people to ensure they're taken care of. Instead many do the opposite of this, they take and take even as they profit while making no efforts to streamline business in more efficient ways or cut costs towards the upper-echelon who get far more than what they need or often times deserve. The problem today is that it's become too one-sided. People should be more adequately paid, no one should ever not be able to live a minimalist lifestyle when working for multi-billion dollar entities, period. Doesn't matter if its the service industry or Walmart.
  10. I'm a firm believer of defeating the 'Patriarchy' and bringing about true equality. Women must be empowered to do this. They must be encouraged to take up leaderships roles, roles in creativity(especially concerning mass entertainment), and men in turn should be emboldened to help them on their journey through life as mentors and partners -- not as their overlords. Until then young boys and men are going to struggle with what it means to be a 'man' and how best to co-exist in the modern world. It is unfortunate when a man finds that his sexual prowess is somehow the measure of his life or that his aims are to essentially marry a woman so that he can have what amounts to a servant at his side at all times. No wonder why sexual assault and frustration among men are so high! I LOVE female protagonists. I'm a huge fan of Disney princesses and the likes. I've even gotten into collecting the films and such. I even enjoy writing for them. I personally want to live in a world where men like me can adore the cute and pretty, to find passion in things beyond "MAN STUFF", rather than be judged and thought lesser of. Why not? Isn't that what we should be striving for always as a society? To break down barriers, find common ground, and create a true sense of equality among our people? We won't have such openness and consideration for one another until, again, the 'Patriarchy' is brought to its knees. Otherwise we'll always be forced to act and conduct ourselves how they desire it so. I truly believe it's time for us men to step down and help hoist up our sisters and daughters to greater heights. We've had our time and we're failing the boys of tomorrow by perpetuating this nonsensical view of manhood. So I want to know what you think. Would the United States of America benefit from the rise of feminism and for men to take on supporting roles?
  11. Rugby is a pretty brutal sport man. That said, a lot of the injuries you suffer with that sport are external. The sheer force of tackling and the size of the men you speak of causes internal damage in our football, it's obscene. So... should we argue which is more stupid then? The one where you namely go home cut up and bruised or the one where you go home with a brain concussion that'll cut your life nearly in half if not destroy it before that point? I think I'll take the prior. However if I have ANY choice, I'll go with soccer. I appreciate technique and finesse far greater than how hard you can hit stupid with other stupid.
  12. Or maybe he's tired of "playing sides" and wants to get real? Doubtful but he definitely had a moment of clarity there either way.
  13. Just so you guys know a lot of these animals were nearly extinct and saved by this "canned hunt" fiasco. So I don't know, take the good with the bad I say. However, if you truly disagree with hunting animals like this you need to approach it with a more sensible point of view. Not just, "Hahah, I want to see that bitch raped by a gang of men. I'll put the bullet in the back of her stupid head to finish her off." -- No joke, one of the many lovely comments made towards her. There's no excuse for that kind of behavior.
  14. I thought Bush was a pretty terrible president... and he was a governor. Honestly, aside from a run-of-the-mill citizen running for president, I'd prefer a military leader with actual combat experience that has yet to be tainted by the politics of Washington. They at least tend to better understand the costs and realities of war and are less tied to the typical nonsense of either party.
  15. I think a lot of concepts and values they feel are true to the heart of the American people. Unfortunately I personally feel they're fighting losing battles(such as gay marriage) and often get portrayed improperly by the media due to their opposition where it is simply not necessary. They also sadly don't seem to understand that a lot of their more "hawkish" counterparts within the same group are an ironic departure from the "pro-life" message that a lot have concerning abortion. Hard to really fight that battle when so many are willing to send our young men(and women) to die in foreign lands in unproductive and costly wars. How can you care so much about a fetus that has yet to develop into a true being when you're more than happy to send off fully developed human beings to senselessly die or get maimed? Both sides have this weird habit of shooting themselves in the foot on a plethora of topics.

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.
