Can you elaborate on #5?
I could write a series of myTakes on this, but I'll just mention a few things: sexualising underaged girls as is done in mass media these days; arresting only the adult if he is caught having sex with a jailbait teenager; demonising and shaming men caught having sex with teenage girls while sympathising with women caught having sex with teenage boys. Those are, like I said, only a few examples...
@Dchrls78104 Aren’t you are 42 year old virgin? How do you feel when someone makes fun of your virginity? That’s how gays feel when you shit on them.

What did MacArthur say about China? And what does Islam say about women?
MacArthur wanted to use nukes against China in the Korean War when our Marines were being swarmed by wave after wave after wave of Chicom soldiers who were all press-ganged and told to attack Americans or die trying, they had one rifle for every ten men and they were wearing paper shoes. In the mountains, in the dead of a legendarily cold winter. MacArthur wanted to nuke the 38th parallel and put a stop to these Chinese suicide charges. Truman fired him and negotiated our withdrawal instead, negotiated for a very long time while our troops were fighting and dying in a war that we had no intention of ever winning. That's why the Korean War is called "The Forgotten War," and is never talked about in US schools. We all just want to forget, but the Chinese still consider the Korean War to be ongoing. They consider the destruction of the US as being essential to securing the survival of the CCP, as evidenced by this leaked internal memo from Chinese Military Intelligence in the early 2000's:
That's not terribly controversial. To be fair though many modern sects aren't all that Christian. It helps not to be another religion though.
Existing on a slight spectrum for intersex conditions. Example: Completely inactive Y chromosome is closer to female so that's the classification. Both genitalia with the external being male and secondary sex characteristics being male puts them as male even if they have female reproductive organs internally.
you know what i mean...
Not to judge, but why is that?
Because they aren't the takers in the economy. People who receive tax refunds and don't pay taxes shouldn't get to vote on giving themselves more benefits.
That's understandable, and in many ways I agree. But if you don't mine, can I play devil's advocate? If poor people were unable to vote, those who do have land could vote laws into affect that exploit the poor. Now, to clarify, I think poor people voting people into office that give them more free stuff is an issue, too, I'm merely playing devil's advocate.
Theoretically a representative republic would keep the rights of minorities protected
I'm not familiar with what a representative Republic is, can you explain?
Do you live in the US?
Then you live in a representative republic. You elect the representatives to vote for you. You don't vote directly on bills
Oh, I see. But isn't that just a republic? I was confused on what you meant by representative. I thought you meant everyone had representation, of which wouldn't be true for a system whom only land owners can vote. My misunderstanding.
But can you explain to me how only land-owners voting could also ensure the protection of minorities?
The representatives are tasked with keeping the rights of the minority.
What makes them inclined to perform that task?
What makes them inclined to vote for anything? people voice their opinions on matters.
Yes but wouldn't it be easy for the voters to disregard and neglect minorities if minorities don't have a say?
We've had a number of laws made in the protection of minorities that couldn't vote.
Yes, we also had slavery, too.
Yes, as did much of the world. We also fought a war to end it.
Yes, and wasn't part of that war about giving black people a vote equal to white people?
No. You really didn't pay attention in history, did you.
No, history was my least favorite class. But regardless, they certainly fought over the freedom of slaves, I'm confident these same people also felt as though black people were equal to white people, and I'm also confident these same people felt as though black people should have an equal vote to a white person. Is that incorrect?
Blacks only received the right to vote in 1965. About 100 years after the civil war
Gotcha. What laws were you referring to when you mentioned their were laws in place to protect minorities?
Look where it got us.
Could you elaborate?
When women were not allowed to vote we had 2 world wars. Just trying to say, couldn't understand your point.
@Platypuss If women were world leaders, we’d have even more. Men are lot more logical than women. The right to vote originally meant being in the draft and providing. I don’t think women should be in the military nor should they be the providers. I also thinking women voting got us to things like LQBTQ rights, feminism and all those ridiculous things. Women in the 1920s didn’t want to vote. The men made them.
TBH, irl never met someone as logical as my own mother. It's not the gender which is at fault, many men have made series of wrong decisions. One of the dominant traits of women are compassion, you need to have at least some people who are compassionate to be the decision makers.This keeps things balanced.Just my thought.
