Power should not derive from heredity. It should derive from the consent of the governed. That was established in the 17th (18th?) century. Ideally, there should be nobody governing anyone, but if we have to have a leader, I'd rather they be elected.

I don't think anybody cares...no offense. But in response- I think it would be morally unethical to change what your child may be, think, or look like unless it is a detrimental health issue What's your reasoning? Changing one's sexuality implies that there is something wrong or undesirable with th...

I think that being pro-life is absolutely incompatible with being Feminist. I know that there are women who call themselves "feminists" while being pro-life but it sounds really absurd to me, like it would be someone calling herself "communist" while voting Trump. Communists for...

You need a hunting license for that, mate. And this isn't a discussion of right/wrong for abortion, this is about contradictory views within the definition of feminism. I'm not debating abortion I'm debating murder. The claim was feminism meant standing up for "all women's rights." That l...

Ultimately, feminism means standing up for all women's rights, even the right to choose. But if someone wants to ban abortions nationwide to where there is no option of choice, what do you say there? Then that's antifeminist. A woman- really, a person capable of pregnancy- deserves the right to bod...

Dodes Hitler's old house really have any cultural or historical significance? I mean, it's just an old building that's kind of sitting there. Might as well pave over it and make it into something that benefits the people.

I would like to state first off that I am a man and a feminist. Can a person be labeled as a feminist and still want to deny women from having abortions? It feels very contradictory and backwards logic to want women to have greater rights while simultaneously wanting to restrict them. How exactly w...

They'll hardly be missed. The chan sites in general are just terrible places for terrible people. There are the occasional, beautiful memes and GT stories that arise, but that doesn't outweigh the horrifying shit that's normally there.

Regional forces aren't always capable of retaking their region singly-handedly, and defender forces can't always be mustered in a timely fashion. Sometimes WA intervention is actually necessary.

Profiling groups based on things like race, nationality, or religion is just a tactic that oppressive groups use to justify their mistrust and hatred of minorities. And it's only against minorities. The vast majority of school shooters in the US have been white males; are we suppoed to profile them?...
