I know I give you a lotta ****, but one thing I'll admit is that I like to see different views and opinions from mine. I know I get cocky pretty often, but at the end of the day I get to see how other people see the world, whether I agree with it or not...
While I wouldn't consider Facebook or Twitter to be the "liberal hellholes" that they're made out to be, it's less common for me to see people with controversial views unless they're friended or shared by somebody I know. It's always "be nice to gay people, don't be a dick, the sky is blue", I mean.. they're not wrong, but it's nothing really thought provoking or challenging anyone's beliefs.
While I may not agree with much of the stuff going on here, it still lets me get an insight into other people's thoughts in an unbiased way that goes beyond "hurrr literally hitler" or "everything is sexist/racist". We can disagree for valid reasons without resorting to strawmen and it helps me understand people who think differently from me. I think some of the more respectful people like Scootabot and jgkingpin are the highlight of this site, as they give me a chance to discuss and debate without getting hostile toward eachother.
For that, I thank you.
This site's pretty good, not the best, but still pretty damn good.
