It is the day after St. Patrick's and speaking of the Irish, I would like to point out that Sinead O'Connor was absolutely right 16 years ago about child abuse and the pope, but so many people dismissed her because she was a woman who had the audacity to shave her own head, and they somehow found that more offensive than the church covering for pedophiles.
to be found in Islam
the church wrong, WE ALL know their misdeeds
what I find funny
not One post condemning the Actions within ISLAM
hell.. I'll do it
A woman just before being stoned to death in Iran under Shariah laws.
At some places on this earth, women’s rights are limited to getting a spoonful of water before stoning.
This is the “religion of peace”.
Honor killings are common within Islam and are still happening within America, this is not something you want. This is what they are asking for when they demand Sharia…
the Left refuses to condem the Lioue
Christians are the problem
a lezbo priest wannabe removing crosses
This post is not about the actions "within" any religion, it is about the mainstream being afraid of people who don't follow the expected norms,
like the lack of respect for women who shave their heads, are "lezbo"s or are "priests".
Nice job proving the point. Thanks, and have a great day.
This type of malfunction happens more often than one thinks ... Watch the video and tell me how something like this can happen? ... I know, because I've seen it happen on a T-Bar lift ...
Seems like somebody could have pulled the plug and stop the mayhem.
Have you seen the newer version of The Beguiled with Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman?
Yes. It was alright. 4/5
Would you consider keeping an insect as a pet?
Yes. But not for long
Here's a good example of progressive thinking. "Why do we live in a society where one of the icons of family entertainment, //the Pirates of the Caribbean// ride at Disneyland can have a segment called "wives for sale" and most non-progressives think that this endorsement of ****-trade slavery is just //good fun//?" We will never progress until you can see the problem with that. [Can't wait for the conservatives to rip me a new one for this post.]
Sure, there's a market for everything. But I doubt such men are anywhere near as common in our culture as you imply.
As for the women...is it for you to determine what they do?
Not at all. And I did not attempt to imply that this was a wide spread issue, only that until it is no longer a 'thing', progressives will have a goal.
You and others can continue to poo-poo this as a non-issue (exactly like OP predicted you would.) That doesn't make it a non-issue and it doesn't excuse you and others for your complacency in equating humans with property.
How many men do you know that believe such a thing...seriously?
Personally? Got me, I don't ask around, I hope few if any. But based on the ad's I see on the internet, there seem to be a market. Maze's comment seems to indicate that some women find a that "market" which implies that there are 'consumers' out there willing to pay.
If it is a lot or a few, humans are never chattel and should never be treated as such.
Please caption me.
Let's have a lifestyle where our main focus is fun...
Isn't it always?
Should the NFL allow women to play? I mean, with all that sexism going around these days, why eliminate pro football? ... You can’t just pick the easy ones, come and open a can of whoop-****.
You're conflating **** slavery with foreign brides? Interesting choice. If that's even a legit ad, and I doubt it is, some women want to find a foreign husband because they're looking for a better future. There are also women who are kidnapped and sold into prostitution by criminal gangs, but that's not the same thing.
Even if you were to take away the ability of women to advertise for foreign husbands, that wouldn't do a damn thing to stop **** trafficking.
Perhaps. What if we took away the male's belief that wives were a thing to be paid for?
And here's another perspective,no need take things so seriously. What if I say " I'm so hungry I could eat a horse" And everyone loses their mind OMG he's a horse murderer, he kills little cute horses for his sick pleasure OMGGGGGGG!
Why do progressives have to ruin everything by looking what to whine about and sadden everyone's day. It's not hurting anybody, no one in a modern, logical and democratic world actually thinks women are creatures so low that you should treat them like store merchandise. This oversensitive perspective is bad for everyone. I'd understand if this was about open hatred or offense but rather it's making a blue whale from a flea.
Maybe, I have complained more than once about the sidebar ads, right here on Amirite, that offer women like merchandise.
Are you sure in "no one in a modern, logical and democratic world actually thinks women are creatures so low that you should treat them like store merchandise."?
Start a boycott of Disneyland if you don't like it.
Thanks for begin the first to comment.
Not much different from this
been going on for centuries
time for this to stop
Over the last ten years, I honestly believe the glue that binds the social progressive Left.. Is the thought of and disdain of a White Straight Male being in charge of anything. Amiwrong?
The glue that binds the social progressive Left is the thought that, with continued effort, every White Straight Male in charge of anything will recognize that everyone else they share this earth with is worthy on the same level and deserves respect, honor, and dignity as well as a decent wage, a place to sleep, enough food to be nourished and health care.
In terms of 'good' and 'bad' every decision, every change, is zero-sum, equal parts positive and negative. From what you eat for dinner to whether you trust North Korea - it doesn't matter to the Earth. Whatever value it brings to you will be exactly balanced by some level of disvalue somewhere else.
That is a disgrace.

Post some poems, quotes or music about flowers.
You are pretending to know something when you don't.
that's the fun part.
What if creationist were only put on earth to test our faith in the scientific method, and if we fail we will be forced to exist for eternity in some absurd pseudo-paradisiac scenario?
If you fail, don't listen to any talking snakes, Vic.
I am the snake
You have free speech. But you do not have //'free platform to speak from'// nor //'free audience to listen to you'//. The first amendment does not mean you can freely speak wherever and whenever you like. It simply means that, assuming you can find an audience, you cannot be arrested for what you say. It doesn't mean we have to be that audience.
No, no - of course not! It's YOUR job to pretend that the university is fair, balanced and has no political bias - just a place of learning.
Good boy! Here's a cookie.
Don't be ridiculous. Some are, some aren't. When I got my MBA the university was very right wing and ultra conservative. For my BA in mathematics that school was very liberal and loaded with socialist.
Clearly some schools are going way overboard to coddle their students while others are teaching 'Chicago School' economics and even creationism.
Students who participate in the National School Walkout Day should be subject to the discipline the school currently uses for 'skipped' classes. Nothing less, and nothing more. To encourage participation by not punishing these kids or to discourage participation by applying harsher penalties only exposes the school to risk of litigation. Do not politicize our schools.
Since it is school students who are most often the victims of these mass shootings, and since it's inside schools where these horrific crimes take place, holding a 17 minute walk out is perfectly reasonable.
In fact we adults can take a lesson. How many school shootings have there been? How long did it take for the issue to fade from the media, and the public discourse following each one? Those kids have managed to keep this discussion going longer than any other group. Perhaps we should have all walked out of work years ago.
I think they should have done it, and many did. But I think the stronger lesson would have been to give them all detention. It would have taught them the price of freedom and it would have given the cause more mileage in both the press and the hearts of the public.
Nothing, except amusement.
Glad to provide that for you. You are easy.
There you go again, Vic, pontificatng in absolutes, when you have often said there are no absolutes that we can know for certain.
What's it to you?
Yeah, that's why they constantly hassle conservative speakers at university - where they celebrate diversity, [as long as it supports progressive ideology.]
Take that up with the supreme court. I cannot answer for the leadership of any university.
Isn't open-air preaching is protected by the first amendment? I remember seeing a news story of a Muslim woman "preaching" anti-Western ideology on a Manhattan street around the time a ground zero mosque was being debated. Even though I detested what she was saying I defended her right to do so against family members who felt she should have somehow been silenced. Perhaps I was wrong.
Sure. But no one needs to let her into their home, place of business or auditorium to speak. Nor are they compeled to stop and listen while she speaks outside.
If Twitter or FB tell her she cannot speak in their forums, it is not illegal.
On the other hand, as Bozette pointed out, a college campus might be required to provide a stage, if properly petitioned and if they have a history of doing so for other speakers. Particularly if they receive federal funding.
Political Agreement: I personally am a Libertarian at heart. A fiscal Conservative in most ways and Social Liberal when it comes to many things... That’s a whole lot of self labeling to simply say.. “I’m Human”. My personal view of the world is semi bleak. All I see anymore is personal attacks on polititions versus debate on policy. Though not just debate. Conference. I would love to hear ideas that we All could agree on to make Earth a better place. Please leave petty political bs out, don’t name individuals. Just discuss policies that could actually benefit all. Can you? It will be difficult for many.
Actually, we do not. We can sign an affidavit instead of showing ID.
Nor do we. No affidavit either. Just sign your name so that they can see that you did not sign-in twice.
