Not even bad in an entertaining way. That, and he's incoherent as hell.

I like him and generally approve, but I don't think he deserves as much praise as some people think he does. He's done good things, but he hasn't really had many direct accomplishments these last few years. To a large extent, though, I don't think it's fair to hold that against him, but he gets attributed for things (like gay marriage) he didn't have a ton to do with. Like with Republicans that praise Reagan for "winning the Cold War" Obama just sort of happened to be the one around when it finally happened.

I like it less and less these days but it's still better than most options of its kind, I guess.

Pro-choice (not a wishy-washy Moderate Hero on women's basic rights).

What's a moderate hero position on this issue, in your view?

What are the "signs of being gay?" The last Lady Gaga mp3 left my iTunes in 2011

Even just casually talking about it in any way other than trying to give your trolling legitimacy would do.
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Breaking: Supreme Court rules SSM a legal right on: June 26, 2015, 05:49:54 pm
A ban is in order. Obvious trolling is unacceptable.

You just don't want someone with different views than you to be able to speak.

No, it's because you claim to be a gay person who hates gay people! You are obviously a troll!

It's amazing how you equate opposing aspects of gay culture as "hating gay people."

You have displayed absolutely no signs of being gay aside from insisting that you are after saying insane bulls**t like 'THE GAY GESTAPO.' There are plenty of gay people out there who don't like "gay culture" (I guess I'd be one of them) and plenty of gays who don't care about marriage, but I've never seen any of them that act like you.

Generally the self-hating gays keep the gay thing to themselves.

Someone please restrain me from answering that question. Someone please restrain me from answering that question. Someone. Please.

You're asking me to prove that I am gay? What would you like me to do exactly?
11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Your opinion on Abortion on: June 26, 2015, 04:08:23 pm
Pro-choice except in the 3rd trimester with health of the mother/baby exceptions.

Also I love this notion that it's the evil men telling women what they can't do with their own bodies. What a tidy little narrative. It conveniently ignores the fact that women are nearly as opposed to abortion as men are, and even if you nitpick years the numbers are not far apart, obviously must vote for those politicians/policies literally by the millions, and there are plenty of female anti-abortion elected representatives.

My view on abortion more broadly is this: Women should be afforded the right to have an abortion because it is only fair. I think opposition to abortion often is informed by misogynistic attitudes, but it is not entirely so. According to the CDC only something like 1.5% of abortions actually occur in the third trimester, and this is the point where the life argument does genuinely affect me, so there's no real loss in opposing it from then on, in my view, within reason. In the end, the debate on the policy should be had on the merits of the policy, instead of creating fictional narratives about it.

Whatever your disagreements with Wu or Sarkeesian, it remains that there is no reason at all for them to be targeted by the vitriol and threats of rape and violence.

Clearly.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: John Oliver condemns online harassment, the Internet responds predictably on: June 25, 2015, 12:22:57 am
He really meant well, but Sarkeesian, no matter what you think of her, is too toxic to use an example regardless.

This. Same goes for Wu. John Oliver chose possibly the worst two people for his examples he could have.

Wu to some extent is arguable considering she's displayed behavior that borders on paranoid delusions and has often picked fights herself, but Sarkeesian hasn't ever really done anything to deserve it. A lot of her work is atrocious but it's really no justification for hating her with such a passion.

The sad thing about Anita - aside from the sad things about Anita that go without saying; harassment, etc. - is that if people had simply left her alone there would've never been a big thing. Anita's famous for being harassed, not famous based on the quality of her work, which has only gone up marginally since she received such an influx of funds. She was doing the same old thing on YouTube for around a couple years before she got discovered through that infamous Kickstarter and people flew off the handle about her for literally no good reason whatsoever. If the edgelords of the internet had simply decided to leave her be, she would've continued being about two notches above nobody, toiling away in YouTube obscurity. The reaction to this video is the same kind of stupid bulls**t.

And yes, more needs to be done about online harassment, making certain things more explicitly illegal, giving tools to pursue it, etc etc. No sane person really disagrees, it's just that many of the people don't comprehend what they're making laws about. Important distinction. Good video. Oliver's doing good stuff over there.

I think I still have some long rambling drunken PM of his about how much he's baffled by gay people. I liked him though.

24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 5th Circuit upholds Texas abortion restrictions on: June 11, 2015, 03:38:52 pm
I'm generally pro-choice (with stricter limits), but I have to say that pro-choice activists are really dumb about politics.
All health and social care should have regulatory standards, and it is not unconstitutional to legislate for these standards when it comes to abortion clinics.

A lot of the na´vety from those who declare that regulations result in "impending deaths of victims of rape in back alley hellholes" is no more sensible than religious fundamentalists declaring that same-sex marriage results in polygamy.

I have no problem with regulations aimed at abortion clinics, but I do have a problem when they are transparently being used as a means to shut as many of them down as possible.

There's one of those good Canadian political plot twists I love so much.

Can the NDP beat the Bloc again? Sure, like Holmes said they've done it once already. Will they capture like 57 of Quebec's seats again? I'm pretty doubtful. The first piece of genuinely bad news for the NDP in a little while. They're really going to have to knock it out of the park again.
