That’s what you get for relying on loopholes to win.
Florida Man isn’t quite as cool now that Marvel has done a SJW retcon on his character.
Seriously, he’s lucky it was just a trans woman. He could have had his soul stolen by a succubus or his brain eaten by an illithid.
Has anyone pointed out to them that Mexicans moving to your neighborhood isn’t quite the same level of systematic oppression that Tibet has experienced for the last 100 years or so? Wait, what am I talking about, its /pol/.
I’m with Morgan Freeman when it comes to Black History Month. Or any “Ethnic History Month” for that matter. I find history in general too interesting to relegate it to a single month.
One could even interpret the memorial to be a moral fable about the perils of transmisogyny. If Firedorn had simply stated “Sorry, I’m not really into that sort of thing, so I will take my leave” or “fuck it, YOLO!” he might still be alive.
So yeah, I dunno WTF Erika is griping about.
Kinda lengthy, especially for Twitter. Wouldn’t #STFUTB work just as well?
A pathological liar calling someone else a liar? That’s like that one riddle…
When people try to make the “video games influence IRL violence” argument…are they not aware of the last 10,000 years of human history?
I mean, most of these people went to college, yes? Did they just not take a single history course the whole time they were there?
>Transmisogyny is not acceptable in 2015.
Agreed. Good thing the game isn’t based in 2015, then.
In GoT, the main character is whoever dies first.
That’s gonna put quite the damper on my penchant for bisexual Asian trans women.
I’ll give you a hint: the oldest established city in the world isn’t in Europe.
Except that you would also carry the genetic trait for that disability. You lucked out in it not being active in you, but you are going to pass it on to your descendents. If you interbreed with people from your ethnic group, there is a higher chance of breeding with someone who also possesses that genetic trait, thereby increasing the chances that your offspring inherit the disease.
The best way to avoid this? Breed with people outside of your ethnicity.
>modern achievement and technology
So…everything that has been invented or achieved in human history has been in the last few decades?
You know the people who invented civilization weren’t particularly white or asian? Yet another example of whitey stealing from the black man.
Even your own siblings can be born with a minor genetic difference that causes a debilitating illness or radically different physical trait. Does that make your brother or sister a different race from you? Does that make you inherently superior or inferior to your sibling?
Hell, we share 98% of our DNA with chimps, and can’t even interbreed.
But humans can interbreed with any other ethnicity of humans, which we have done at great length throughout history. because our “genetic differences” are infinitesimally insignificant. This isn’t horses and mules, its horses and horses.
And comparing the average intelligence of a group comprised of millions of people to the average intelligence of another group comprised of millions of people, it will not provide any indication of the intelligence of individuals of that group. I suggest brushing up on Statistics 101, sir or madam.
Did you know that you’re part black? Most likely some Middle-Eastern in there as well. And probably part Asian. Most definitely central Asian, as all Caucasians are.
You see, racist ideologies are stuck in a time period from before our modern understanding of genetics. When people made the assumption that the outward color of your skin somehow indicated your genetic ancestry.
Arguments insinuating the superiority or inferiority of different ethnic groups completely overlook the fact that we are the same species. We’re no different that a brown dog with black spots is different from a black dog with brown spots.
Aaaaand…before you bring up the “but dog breeds are different, so black people…” argument. Yes, dog breeds are extremely varied and each have different attributes, because WE bred them that way. The only human equivalent to this is the aristocracy, which is inferior to the rest of us because so much inbreeding has increased their likelihood of genetic malformations and diseases (just like purebred dogs).
I could explain the argument from authority fallacy to you. I could explain the rather dubious reliability of IQ to you. I could explain how your misinterpretation of statistics is based in your racial bias.
But what good would it do?
A birther’s opinion isn’t going to be swayed by a copy of Obama’s birth certificate. A truther’s opinion isn’t going to be swayed by the laws of physics. An anti-vaxxer’s opinion isn’t going to be swayed by peer reviewed studies. A Creationist’s opinion isn’t going to be swayed by geological evidence.
Just as your opinion won’t be swayed by anyone explaining biology, anthropology, sociology, or history to you. So why should anyone bother engaging in debate or acknowledging your argument?
Just because someone has an opinion or belief, does not make that opinion or belief inherently legitimate or worthy of further consideration.
Would you like to have a debate on whether the number four smells a bit more like the color yellow or red?
There is no “debate” here. A critical debate would infer some possibility of either side accepting the merits of the other side’s argument based on logic and evidence.
“Anti-racist is code for anti-white” itself is a false equivalency fallacy; not a great footing to posit a legitimate argument. The entire premise is steeped in racist ideologies, and overlooks (or blatantly ignores) established knowledge of genetics and sociology.
Its not simply that one disagrees with the argument. It is that the argument itself does not possess any shred of legitimacy worth acknowledging.
There is no point in engaging in a debate in which the claimant will ignore all facts to the contrary because they run counter to their racist ideology. So the best course of action is to not engage.
What if I said there was this CHAOS problem and this CHAOS problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of Chaos Space Marines were brought into EVERY Imperial sector and ONLY into Imperial sectors?
How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a CHAOS problem. I am talking about the Final solution to the FALSE EMPEROR problem?
And how long would it take any sane guardsmen to notice this and what kind of psycho guardsmen wouldn’t object to this?
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of denial against my gods, the Ruinous Powers, the Inquisition and respectable Space Marines agree that I am a chaosspacemarinewhowantstokillsixmillionTerrans.
They say they are anti-heresy. What they are is anti-truth.
Anti-heresy is a code word for anti-truth.
