Why is everyone so invested in someone's kid's genitals?! The best gender reveal party would involve popping a balloon that sprinkled biodegradable purple confetti, followed by "Yakkity Sax" blasting on speakers while a couple people in fairy wings skip around with signs that say "Gender is a social construct," "Kids are more than gender," and "Ask me about my personally signed copy of Judith Butler's Gender Trouble."

I think that child marriage (Marriage below 18) should be illegal with NO exceptions. It makes so much trouble for the kids, yet so many states still have many loopholes. Only a few have a strict ban. NO parental consent, NO exceptions, and KEEP it that way. Sometimes it is used to keep a rapist out of jail because the child is pregnant, There was actually a case by the way. A girl's father or mother had her married because her boyfriend got her pregnant while drunk. She only consented because she loved him, and she was happy to be a mother. Sadly, the child miscarried during a wedding, but the people got punished for this. They went to a different state to get consent from a judge. Man, life is worng.

Regulation is the means by which the wealthy and powerful use government to protect their market share. The notion of a "well-regulated free market" is oxymoronic. As information technology expands, economies are increasingly able to be controlled not by regulation, but by informed choices. So Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Disney, GM, Exxon, etc., urgently convince people that they need more regulation. Absent governmental controls (like 100-year copyrights, frivolous patents, etc.), wealth and power will obey the law of entropy.

What if a black person is reclaiming a slur? What if a black person calls another black person 'my n***a'? What if an Australian woman casually uses the word c*nt to describe a man? What if a British smoker asks someone if he can "get a light for his f*g", does he get arrested? Also- any kind of insult that discriminates against someone- you know all insults are discriminatory right? if you call someone stupid, you're discriminating against stupid people, that is the nature of insults. It might sound nice, but I can't imagine a situation where this wouldn't be horribly misused. The goal isn't to 'get rid of mean words', it's to change discriminatory systems and treatment so that those words lose their power over people.

But that is the purpose of freedom of speech in the U.S. Speech that is all butterflies and roses does not NEED protecting. The Gettysburg address didn't need protecting, they lyrics to "Strange Fruit" did. Yes, there are a-holes out there who just don't need to be given a microphone or even listened to without one, but we cannot pick and choose what is allowed to be said based on how it makes someone else feel. Vote with your feet - walk away from these people or don't buy whatever they're peddling and hit them in the wallet. That's what works.

I agree, but also if it was illegal, it would be stripping away words that people are trying to reclaim. For example, the n-word.

That would be a good thing, I'm also black and you can't reclaim words like the n-word. The sad fact is that that word has been kept alive in black arts to our own detriment because it still has the same meaning when spoken by anyone that is not black and carries with it the same ability to offend. It would have fallen out of use in the same way many other words have over the years by now.

I personally believe that a person who committed one crime should be given a second chance. But some people are irredeemable . A person who has raped and killed 3 infants should never set foot on the streets again. (To out an example). Since keeping people locked for life is cruel and expensive I don’t see why death penalty shouldn’t be an option for them. Maybe it could be a choice for the inmate to never be free again or to die. (I would chose the second)

Good to know I'm not the only one who thinks so. You quite easily get labelled as "antisemitic" for publicly holding that opinion, even though I have absolutely no problem about Jews - I have a problem about child genital mutilation, regardless of who does it

Um.. do you want to copy China's disastrous 1 child policy? Do you want to sterilize people against their will? Do you want to slaughter the excess children? Do you want to dabble in eugenics? Should poor people (a group which is largely constituted by minorities) not be allowed to reproduce? What exactly is your plan here buddy??

It's slave labour and why keep somebody on once the internship is over when you can hire somebody else for nothing. Also it discriminates against people who don't have parents to financially support them while carrying out an unpaid internship.

Political correctness.
We have specific words to describe things for the purposes of accuracy. Sometimes the truth hurts. Abandoning accuracy simply for the purposes of sparing someone's feelings is in essence sacrificing the truth for emotion...it is feeding delusion.

Report

Murdoch also owns British media such as the Sun and the Times. When he bought the Sun which used to be the Daily Herald he introduced topless Page 3 girls and made it right wing. Liverpool has boycotted the Sun so there are very few shops there that stock the Sun and there hasn't been a Tory MP for over 30 years and there isn't a Tory councillor. Most of those there that voted in the EU referendum voted Remain. Manchester is following suit. The Daily Mail and the Daily Express are less dangerous as they are mostly read by middle class people who would vote Tory anyway if they didn't exist. The Sun is mostly read by working class people who would otherwise vote Labour if it didn't exist.

Gas-powered leaf blowers. The engines are filthy, producing hundreds of times more pollution than a car engine. They're dangerously loud to the user and those nearby, but are even annoyingly loud from hundreds of feet away. And most morons who use them always use the highest setting, blasting dirt and pollen a hundred feet around and two stories into the air. Using them to move large amounts of wet leaves in the fall makes some sense, but they’re more often used to blow dirt around, scouring the top soil off the ground, destroying insect and small animal habitat, or just raising a giant dust cloud in an urban environment.
