“Great is the power of steady misrepresentation; but the history of science shows that fortunately this power does not long endure.” ~ Charles Darwin.
Polite is not correct or nice. Frank is not wrong or nasty. Feelings or facts, as seen?
An example of how criticizing white people can be funny (because it’s true), fine (because it’s put in a polite way) and not anti-white.
I’d argue that adventuring spirit is the reason we had Empires.
And for That’s Not Sexist Because It’s In the Bible.
I already know this but it’s well put. I find it funny when fake manosphere Christians bring up Eve like that’s a real point. Are you missing a rib too? And Lilith is Jewish. There’s no such thing as Judeo-Christian because Nietzsche came up with that to trash-talk two religions at once et cetera et cetera…
It’s good to explain to these people what really happened – according to the Bible they do not read except in snippets on wikipedia.
A man did something he knew would make God mad – and the woman got blamed for it. I’ll take World History for $100.
Based on a literal reading of this fact, women can educate themselves with as much knowledge as they want with God’s blessing aka only men are forbidden from knowledge. Probably because you know, what they do with it.
~nukes going off in the distance~
So, if we’re being pedantic like many male theology students, Christian only universities should be women’s only universities, right?
Or do we only apply the one-sided stuff when women get the short end of the passage (like explicitly mentioning female virginity because it was written by horny men)?
Double standards are fine if there is a sound reason given at the same time (so in this case, in the Bible, preferably same gospel). In that case, I think it’s presumed men would be virgins upon marriage based on the rarity and expense of prostitutes. Nowadays all you need to do is buy them a drink.
Yet it never mentions whether it was OK if she lost her virginity to the man she was marrying….
It kinda reminds me of the hypocrisy (always wrong) of the hijab/niqab/burka – if it’s really about modesty, the men would wear them too.
Like old nun clothing, matched up to priest clothing. Fair standard. No free rides here, sinner.
Ignoring the “my opinion of science is the correct one 4eva” scientism faux angle.
Ignoring that snarky insinuation.
“You were dangerous.”
When someone has a problem with you telling the truth (say, citing modest stats, no commentary), it isn’t a problem with you, per se.
You’re the fleshy human convenient punching bag.
The Devil with a face. You can’t punch evil in the face.
Victim culture and corruption is fueled with the blood of truth seekers. Think of it as ideological welfare to go with their ideological imperialism (all not-Us people are bad! ~ literally the opinion of bigots, literal definition).
Bigots used to be liars who refused to hear the truth. Problem is, they’d try to ban it from others’ ears too.
It’s mind boggling when they dispute facts.
Not opinions, not skews, but bare, blunt facts.
What could I do? you think. I’m the messenger. I didn’t design any of this reality. You think I enjoy this??? Seriously!?
I’m pointing and describing it. I don’t like it either, but you don’t change things by ignoring them.
If logic worked on them, you wouldn’t have to explain it for them. They’d seek the information themselves, we have the internet now. They’d ask you things. Idiots are uppity. If you’re right, and especially if you explain it well, they’ll derail; they’ll slag off your personality (bitchy, rude) or tone (arrogant, condescending). Reaction formation is real.
Save those who want the truth (see Best Post).
Fuck the rest.
Facts like: there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
Consumption without industry is unnatural and impossible. Barring slavery.
You won’t be able to live off a state pension, and you probably won’t even get one. They’ll slowly phase it out into irrelevance. You’ll be lucky if it can buy a Freddo by the time you retire.
If the minimum wage hike advocates understood maths and economics to know why it’s gonna screw them over, they’d wouldn’t be earning minimum wage.
Stupid people and poor people will always exist. But I repeat myself. You can’t teach someone out of stupidity. The top schools take the top IQ slice. If you leveled everyone, totally equal by force, after a year there would be inequalities based on personal decisions. Equality is the idea that if I can’t succeed, you can’t succeed, because you must be cheating!
Free loaders expect to match the results of the top performer. Participation trophies?
Smart places are dragged down to the weakest IQ in the room i.e. University.
“But it’s fun” is the excuse of every loser in history.
The Government doesn’t solve social problems. It causes social problems.
You pay a premium to live in a low crime homogeneous demographic area in your native country.
You pay for the destructive lifestyles and terrible choices of idiots in your country, and their vote counts as much as yours.
Political Correctness is the method of politicians saying There Are No Harsh Truths.
PC culture revolves around the infantilization of adults making up the Voting Public.
Whichever baby makes the biggest fuss gets the attention.
