    There are plenty of cool and level headed people who have been to war too... doesn't mean war isn't fucked up.

    Also the corresponding effort they have to try to make traditional/Christian lifestyles seem terrible. It has been a big irritant for me lately how media slips in digs at Christians. Every meth head needs to be a Christian, every pedophile needs to be wearing a cross, every Christian in high-school has to be hypocritical and judgmental.

    That's the worst thing I've read in a long time.

    I am sure of that, I think online dating hook up culture is insane in general. Probably 100000000000000000x more for gays. When I go through my old sexts from online dating it ranges from "holy shit, I fucked that, I am AWESOME" to "holy shit, I fucked THAT?! What the fuck is wrong with me?!" When I go through my old sexts from girls I randomly hooked up with naturally (i.e. a tryst at work, a bar, the gym, class etc.) it's a sweet sense of nostalgia. I think internet/app hook-ups really disrupt nature.

    Most religious people tend to be very judgemental

    The question is why you are watching or aware of any of this stuff.

    I read this shit after reading and posting on a professional Santa Claus forum. I would say give them coal, but they might stick the coal up their butts for pleasure or use it for enemas.

    On a much happier thought many of the Santas that do home visits and parties saw a good increase for event bookings after the election of President Trump over the same time last season. They are also seeing an increase in preliminary contact as now is the time to start booking Santa as the schedule fills up quick.

    It's like Googles; they are good at pretending to be normal when surrounded by others, but among themselves it's a different story.

    I stop watching a show if it becomes a pattern, but it's so pervasive that it is hard to avoid. I am not talking about shows like Glee, where it would be expected.

    It's always good to be aware of what normies are watching. The culture is pervasive. I think we should be aware just not participating.

    Honestly I'd rather live in a predominantly gay community than a Google one for this reason.

    First world real estate is 90% comprised of living in any community but a black one.

    When I was a kid, "Smear the Queer" was a playground game. Now they have gay marriage and 2 male gay nurses live nextdoor to my parents. My state virtually bans guns, but turns the city into Amsterdam.

    I am only 30 years old. People were calling each other fags 8 years ago with impunity. The world changed rapidly.

    The late 90's might as well be the 1950s. Gay was the go to word for anything bad in middle school. Now they're painting rainbow flags on sidewalks.

    Despite that essay, the thing that annoys is how pushed it is by the mainstream, more than the actual behavior. Why the fuck does rainbow flag have to be on everything, you're nothing worth celebrating.

    Symbolism is very important for them to keep the political unit intact, without it LGBTQI(etc.) factions wouldn't have anything to do with each other.

    Ok, maybe I do need to make sure my boys learn to play sports so they don't get picked last...

    Proof that libertarians don't breed

    [​IMG]

    Most people have always viewed the political compass as the center being the average person's stance with deviations branching from there. Untrue! As you can see America falls mostly into the "I'm a social liberal, fiscal conservative" - you will often hear this parroted by white people age 35+ and/or the ones with children. It's a safe way to be politically correct while also supporting some level of useful policy.

    I don't even care what the color ratio is of the bottom right ... the brutality is how few of them there actually are.

    Anyone who has read the various writings of the founding fathers knows they discussed this end of the spectrum at length as a massive thought experiment. Slowly, they began to wrangle together a framework that could take these ideas and actually make them work in the real world by tempering them with the realities of human nature and the direction the population at the time would head under these circumstances. Thus, the framework of our country.

    Reactionary politics must be acknowledged. If you are a functioning person you will always react to your environment, this includes the sway of your ideas. Depending on your capabilities, in hard times you're going to swing top right or bottom left on this compass. During good times most people "even out" somewhere on the top left to middle.

    Pure uncompromising libertarians are so detached from the social fiber of the system they reside in that they miss the cue and don't ride the waves of change. It was fine to think this way 100+ years ago but the speed and information of our age demands the extremes. The top left and bottom right groups are nothing but scraps, we fight over them only because every vote still counts evenly. It makes much more sense to reach out to top left group because there are 10x more of them.

    Has anyone noticed how there aren't any big comedy movies anymore? That's because you can't make fun of funny things and everything today is lame as fuck. Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and the others used to come up with huge box office comedies and I would laugh my ass off every time. Dodgeball, Hangover, Wedding Singers, Old School and the like would never be made today. The last funny movie I could remember was Ted (2012).

    I still like just about anything with Vince Vaughn in it.

    Same thing with Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber etc. Tons of homophobic and racist jokes.
