Google would rather talk about this, not privacy[edit]

hate speech[edit]

i go to post a link to an article about free speech and i find ive been beaten to the punch. bastards. still, a slightly different perspective and less us centric, so all good. AMassiveGay (talk) 14:04, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

well thats odd. two links, saying braodly the same thing but gets 10 downvotes the other gets 10 upvotes. i am curious to know the reasoning there, if anyone cares to enlighten me. AMassiveGay (talk) 12:02, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

pocahontas[edit]

Apparently disney movies arnt an accurate description of history. Who knew? apparently grass is green and the sky is blue too. who knew? AMassiveGay (talk) 18:53, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

really? john ratcliffe isn't a large, evil-looking fat guy who wears a purple hat and keeps a pug as a pet? БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 20:35, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
Should we remove the headline then? I'm in agreement with AMG here, this subject is so blatantly obvious that it isn't worth mentioning. Alternitvally some snark about said obviousness might be appropriate here ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:49, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
Is the video about something we don't already know about Pochahontas or is it just another video that talks about what it does wrong? БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 20:51, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
Watched the video TL:DR version: Disney movies are inaccurate (we already knew that), Corporatism and Colonialism when combined generally equal bad shit (probably either knew that or had some inkling of that), and Smith exaggerated everything and was kinda a pervert (falls under the first point, also no one who knows history is surprised by this) ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 00:00, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

homosexuality and morality[edit]

this seems to address a debate that literally no one is making. i have yet to meet to anyone who claims homosexuality is moral. plenty who say it isnt or is immoral, but never moral. the chap states at the out set that morality is subjective and you can you make all kind of claims as to why it would be immoral, even using his own criteria for morality. i would likely disagree, but to say it doesnt fall under that spectrum is simply false. all that will be achieved by responding to the an argument that it is 'immoral' by saying its is neither is confirm that are are you indeed a filthy immoral queer. you respond with why it isnt immoral. you respond with why their morality is full of shit. anyone swayed by the arguments in this video probably isnt going be a massive homophobe in the first place AMassiveGay (talk) 23:12, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

homosexuality and heterosexuality and whatever sexuality is just that: a sexuality. all it is says is basically what kinds of people you want to bang. people asking if a sexuality is "moral" or "immoral" are asking the wrong questions: it's WHAT you do with the sexuality that matters, not the sexuality in of itself. БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 23:14, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
but no one is asking that question. there people saying it is immoral, and people saying it isnt. whether it is moral ot does not come i to it. what you 'do' with your sexuality is very much the crux the issue, very much the root of what some find 'immoral'. you cannot separate sexuality and what 'do' with it, its one and the same. do you think anyone would give a shit about homosexuality no acted on it? it would be just some odd curiosity. they wouldnt spit at you in the street. homophobia requires a direct and forceful response. the argument in this video is not that. AMassiveGay (talk) 23:27, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
and i'll repeat myself: people who are asking about the morality of a sexuality are asking the wrong questions. no one cares which gender of people you prefer to bang except for bigots, whose opinions shouldn't be even taken at face value in the first place. БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 23:41, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
and i will repeat - no one is asking that question except bigots, and they need to be answered appropriately. AMassiveGay (talk) 23:50, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

RE; Autism awareness day[edit]

Daily reminder to medicate autistic children with risperidone. I know this sounds cold but it really, really improves quality of life. The Player Formerly Known as Mousecop (talk) 20:28, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

No. Risperidone has some evidence that it works against irritability and aggression among autistic children, but this is not a universal problem among autistic children. Also, with an admission that this is anecdotal, I have heard from two individuals who had unpleasant experiences with the drug who never really seemed to have these problems. As the preponderance of alternative therapies for autism demonstrates, there are many who are willing to latch on to a treatment even if it is not appropriate, and may even do more harm than good. --51.174.61.251 (talk) 14:20, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
