this argument does not work anywhere near as strongly in favour of your position as you appear to think it does. though, on point, i'd like to cite this as a direct example of how including direct references to the correct age of consent in the rules directly encourages debates over the age of cons...

What's with all the Pole hating going on in Britain post Brexit? It seems like all of the sudden half of the UK wants to throw every last polish person into the North sea kicking and screaming. idk i thought most of the poles went home as quality of life in poland went up and quality of life in eng...

Debates regarding marriage age are tapdancing right on the line; acceptable when focused on the "entering a legally binding contract" angle as noted in the next point, not acceptable when it's focusing on the sexual consent angle. If you're not sure, better to simply avoid it. again, why ...

Abolish gender is at best a utopian pipe dream or at worst a TERF dogwhistle. Marriage? Abolishing it would at the very least mean that there is no longer any legal and fiscal recognition of it. But, it seems that the legal institution, at the very least, of marriage ought to include more types of ...

There have been widespread public allegations that Russia sought to influence the 2016 referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU. The impact of any such attempts would be difficult – if not impossible – to assess, and we have not sought to do so.

We had a moratorium on certain subjects, due in part to the very large tendency of such topics to attract a type of user we do not want on a website used in schools and possessing a large underage population. Unfortunately, this moratorium was poorly documented at the time, and between that and the...

So it's bad because fuck you got mine? uhm...no. It's bad because a bunch of people who don't go to university and will never benefit from it are having to pay to assist others to go through universities, and to open up doors for them that they can't open for themselves. Also, Scotland can't afford...

I know of one current mod who's previously stated moderation methodology is highly suspect. I'd trust them to smite spambots and pornposters, but I'm less inclined to trust their opinion on flaming and trolling when the target is a minority. What's this now? if people actually tried posting their g...

If any of those who have wish to say so publically, that is their choice. alright, makes sense, cool. If not, it is their choice, and is private. that's fair.

And really, knowing that the question was likely coming, he should have worked out an answer before he was asked; he allowed himself to get tied in semantic knots over the issue. So even if we argue that he was unfairly punished for his views, he also didn't show the political skills necessary to r...

hot take: tim farron's position was reasonable and moral given his circumstances and it's only due to the UK's insistence on ideological and cultural purity he got booted. essentially, he was punished for being a wrongthinker.
