now that it's a year away, who do you guys think will run for president? I'm hoping Rand Paul has it in him to win but I don't know. Jeb Bush as of yesterday is making a strong showing to get out there and try, maybe another Bush? Maybe Hillary? what party do you think will win, and what party do you think should win?

She's going to have the blacks and democrats vote for her like they did Obama. And she's going to have the women voting for her because she's always been thought to be destined as the first female President. I wouldn't be surprised if another large turnout of younger people voted for her too. I'll be fairly surprised if she doesn't win, which is awful because I hate her as a candidate.

I couldn't give a shit that this transgender Leelah Acorn committed suicide.

First of I don't believe in gender being more important then sex so I don't find that kinda shit natural or logical. Not meaning that I want it killed but I simply couldn't care for it's struggle.

Second of all I always believe that suicide is cowardice especially since it could have gotten its dose of estrogen up the ass in a year (she was 17). Its parents never even physically assaulted or threatened it so clearly it wasn't being abused.

Third of all, it chose a really stupid way to kill itself. Really, getting hit by a truck? You could have gotten the truck driver killed, pretty uncaring. You could have just slit your throat or jumped off a tall building. That would have looked pretty cool.

Also, I literally cringed when I saw its picture. It's funny seeing people on tumblr praising it like a queen or a perfect person.

I never understood how people can think of it like that. Sure, something must be wrong with someone's head most of the time when he/she commits suicide, but calling it cowardice doesn't make any sense.

Not really. Statistically most people have suicidal thoughts during some period of time in their life.

1. Gender and Sex are literally the same thing. They meant literally the same thing until John Money came up with the idea to distinguish the terms gender and sex, the same John Money who got a boy to commit suicide because he raised him as a girl trying and failing to prove that gender is a social construct.

2. It's the result of Gender Identity Disorder. She had a disorder that needed to be accepted and fixed but the parents decided to ignore it. It's akin to telling a person with clinical depression to be happy. It may not have been any physical abuse but due to the dysphoria she had caused by being in the wrong body she suffered immensely.

3. Agreed. Suicide is bad enough, traumatizing a truck driver is even worse.
User avatar #75175 to #75124 - Shiny (01/06/2015) [-]
I agree that Money made a lot of idiotic decisions under the guise of academic pursuit, but gender and sex still aren't the same thing. One could argue that sociological perspectives are meaningless, but nevertheless they are well accepted as distinct.

Social constructs can be biologically rooted, after all. We consciously decided to sexually segregate bathrooms in most public settings, for example, as opposed to doing so out of biological impulse. But the reasons we do this are related to biology, i.e. men need stalls because dicks and women need tampon vendors because periods.

1. I know. Also "meant".
2. I won't believe in this unless you were to give me some kinda anatomical evidence.
User avatar #75134 to #75129 - kanadetenshi (01/05/2015) [-]
It's not anatomical but psychological. Gender Identity Disorder is in the DSM-V. The physiological cause would probably be the SRY gene not working properly thus causing us not to receive enough testosterone to go to the transition to male neurologically like most humans do when they get the Y chromosome. Thus having a female brain with a genetically male body. Dunno about FtM.
User avatar #75136 to #75134 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/05/2015) [-]
See the problem with the social sciences, psychology especially is that it gives everything and everyone an excuse. You got school problems, disorder. You raped and slaughtered a bunch of kids, mental illness. I'm sick and tired of this going on.

There are 2 types of people on earth. Ones that like to give excuses for everything and look over optimistically on people and ones that don't accept excuses and bring punishment and action accordingly. Kinda left vs. right separation.

I find it hard to believe this is all a science. I can't argue against your proof but as you state this is all probable and guesstimated. Either way we are all born with different brains and genes and I don't feel like I've been presented enough anatomical evidence for this to be such an abnormality as to label it as something that needs treatment. Damn right you don't have a state of order in your "gender", so what.

I feel bad for it, but I don't believe it has any disorder.
User avatar #75138 to #75136 - kanadetenshi (01/05/2015) [-]
There's a difference between excusing and finding the cause of something. When we know the reasoning behind why someone commits suicide or wants to shoot up a school, it's easier to take measures to stop it.

I always thought it was funny how blue eyes and blonde hair was considered the master race. Comparing that to evolution is fairly silly when you consider how those are recessive traits, and when those traits are combined with someone of brown eyes and brown hair they're going to have kids with brown eyes and hair in most circumstances.
User avatar #75156 to #75153 - youregaylol (01/06/2015) [-]
The true master race has light bronze (not brown) skin, hazel/brown eyes, and pitch black hair, and an abundance of body hair. I'm talking of course about Mediterraneans.

Hey that's me. (Except the body hair part. I'm 19 and can only grow some okay facial and chest hair. Nothing manly looking. )

I wouldn't really say that there is a true master race. But you can't deny that some races have lagged behind others.
User avatar #75158 to #75157 - youregaylol (01/06/2015) [-]
Rome, Greece, Mesopotamia, Carthage, Egypt, Phoenicia, and even Persia. Whatever we touch turns to gold.

However you shouldn't consider yourself part of that just based that decription I gave you. You could easily be a wetback, an indian, an arab, a jew, or slav, or a turk just based on that description.

Usually when I describe Mediterraneans to other people they associate them with those races despite the vast differences of accomplishments between them. Mediterraneans have more cultural victories than any other race on earth.
User avatar #75160 to #75158 - marinepenguin (01/06/2015) [-]
Well I'd say that's a matter of your own opinion really.

I'm 1/4th Sicilian, 1/8th Native American Cherokee, 1/16th Czech, 1/16th French. That's my fathers side. My mother is mostly German, with blue eyes and blonde hair as their defining traits. I don't know the specifics of that side though beyond German.

And I'd say that every single race and nation on the planet has had their own achievements in science and culture. Some of the first civilizations appeared in the Fertile Crescent, but they turned that fertile landscape into a desert through poor irrigation. Rome was a shining beacon of Civilization for a thousand years, but fell due to a horde of Barbarians and centuries of Corruption. Egypt has survived for thousands of years through drought, invasion, and warfare, but they haven't been much to bat an eye at for thousands of years, their golden age ended long ago. Same can be said for the Persians. Greece is a debt riddled mess these days, and although they did great things long ago, they were nothing more then a pack of warring city states before Alexander came from Macedonia and forced them to work together.

The same can be said for civilizations in Africa, Asia, America, the Pacific, and India.

While power in the ancient times was focused around the Mediterranean, I'm afraid that time has been gone for a long time. For 500 years now the world has been centered around Western Europe and her colonies, and now that's aided by the relatively recent rise of the US after WW2. It's a European and Western world these days, and not a Mediterranean one. Sometime in the future that power will fade and it'll be replaced by another rising power.
User avatar #75161 to #75160 - youregaylol (01/06/2015) [-]
Only a fool would compare african "civilizations" to what happened in the Mediterranean.

And you realize you're comparing apples to oranges with the western comparison. One is a unified economic and cultural bloc, and one is a race. To be western is to be born in the west which includes the Mediterranean , to be Mediterranean is to be Mediterranean. We're talking about race, not nationality.

Racially, there has been no other singular race that has contributed more to this world than the Mediterraneans, whose legacy continued through the Saxons they civilized and the governments based on their culture. Like all european nations the bloodline has been thinned with other races, such is the result of multiculturalism, race mixing, and immigration over hundreds of years. True Mediterraneans, the ones who founded Rome, have long since been displaced and their culture has been destroyed. Such is life, but they still have the most accomplishments out of any other race in history.

To deny that is ignorant.
User avatar #75162 to #75161 - marinepenguin (01/06/2015) [-]
I never compared civilizations in Africa with those of the Mediterranean. I only claimed that they had their own golden ages like all others did. There were actually a few Saharan civilizations that were very advanced for their times, but succumbed to drought and warfare eventually. Since then nothing commendable has come from them.


And yes, all civilizations have been built upon the ruins of the ones before. The dark ages occurred because the Northern Europeans didn't have the capacity to understand and maintain the infrastructure and knowledge of the Romans, combine that with plague and you don't have an easy combination. Eventually they began to advance on their own, without Roman knowledge, though it took nearly 500 years.

Yes, denying that Rome and many Mediterranean civilizations had a massive influence on human culture and technology is ignorant, and I have never denied that fact.

But it is just as ignorant to say that they are directly responsible for our modern world. They "raised the bar" of human technology and society, but when they were ultimately destroyed that bar had to have been raised by someone else. The industrial age, trains, widespread electricity, Flight, Space technologies, Nuclear Power. All major creations and discoveries that were made without Mediterranean ideas. Rome and Persia and those other nations may have helped spawn the European civilizations today, and that may make them indirectly responsible for many of our technologies today, but it does not mean that they were the master race who made this all possible. They were simply a stepping stone of human achievement in it's entirety. Just as our modern age is a stepping stone into another more advanced age.
User avatar #75163 to #75162 - youregaylol (01/06/2015) [-]
The Mediterraneans weren't stepping stones in some progression of civilization, they were civilization. It wasn't just europe, every form of government on this earth sits on the building blocks of what happened in the Mediterranean. The past hundred or so years may still be in our memory, but I can't think of any greater invention than civilization itself.

You live in a fantasy if you believe that they weren't responsible for our world today.
User avatar #75167 to #75163 - marinepenguin (01/06/2015) [-]
You're a fool if you think we know exactly where civilization first began. We know much less about our origins then textbooks would have you believe. There are ruins in South America that are 13,000 years old. Ruins in Turkey and India that are close to 15,000. These are both 10,000 years older then the Pyramids, and at least 5,000 years older then the first record of the Assyrians, the first recorded civilization.

Even if the first civilizations hadn't of sprung up in the Middle East, it would have come from China, from India, from the Pacific, civilization was inevitable for our species. Those civilizations are responsible for the world we live in, but if they hadn't we would still have civilization, just in a different way.
User avatar #75169 to #75167 - youregaylol (01/06/2015) [-]
Then I guess I'm a fool because we do know exactly where civilization first began. Textbooks don't tell us everything but they tell us everything we need to know. It's no secret that all of our major cultural advancements in history happened in one small corner of the earth by a distinctive group of people.

The we're all equal so it would've happened eventually nonsense is easily disproven by just observing history. The Mediterraneans did it first and they did it better because they were better, it's not rocket science.

David Trads, political commentator and blogger (for some reason that's considered a profession these days). Also he's an avid supporter of Radikale Venstre, a political party which in essence wants to make Denmark into Sweden, controlled by the EU. They love anything that isn't Danish and muslims are their waifu. And they too are becoming increasingly popular.

Well according to wiki he's an experienced journalist, so that he has success as a blogger isn't a surprise.

I'm not Danish, but I speak it, and I read Danish newspapers and Danish social and political threads, and most people I see aren't too fond of political correctness. I also think that it doesn't mix very well with Danish humor.

Danes should feel bad, or at least be aware, of how they mistreated the inhabitants of Greenland in the past.
User avatar #75109 to #75106 - radiserne (01/05/2015) [-]
We mistreated them in the past. But I think we've redeemed ourselves pretty much by giving them self governance and a shitload of money each year, with nothing in return. And even so, it turn out that Aleqa Hammond, the chairman of the Inatsisartut, uses government money she's not allowed to use. Greenland's current issues are self-inflicted, we've done all and more to help them. For historic purposes we should be aware of the mistreat of greenlanders, but no living dane should feel any guilt whatsoever.
User avatar #75110 to #75109 - christmouth (01/05/2015) [-]

The "holocaust" diversion Smerconish pulled, at the end, was much like Leibowitz's attempt, last October, to get Bill O' Reilly to profess to the existence of "White privilege."

David Duke did not capitulate, though, and handled it, along with the greater interview, pretty well.

He had been making a good point regarding the misconception that EURO was distinctly fringe in Louisiana, before being cut-off as "off-topic" by the same anchor who would aim to entrap with historical irrelevancy.

It is good for the economy, so long as the rates do not go to high.
Its been a while, but I think this book was talking mainly about the absurd amount of interest on the money that Germany had to pay to all the other countries after they lost WW1 (They were forced to pay all the war debts of everyone participating in the War.)

Aside from that, yeah, interest is fine, it acts as an insurance (or incentive) that assures loans will be paid back quickly, but if it is too high (I believe both this manifesto and Adam Smiths "Wealth of Nations" will support this), then it creates a situation where loans simply can't be paid back by a laborer (or nation) with a low income job or poor economy (similar to the situation Germany was placed in after the war).

Oh, don't worry. I read that one in private. But it really goes to show how good insight can come from just about any source. Very rarely will someone get the entire picture completely wrong, but very often will people be so far off in a few particular areas that all of their good ideas are thrown out too.

hey new /pol/ first time on here, but I'm here in times of distress. Our religion course has a question that compromises the entire mark of the assignment, the question being:

Read “Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack”. Write a 250-350 word reflection on your reaction or response to this article

This is the article in question:
amptoons.com/blog/files/mcintosh.html

So my query is: How do I properly tell my teacher that all of this is complete and utter bullshit on all fronts?

Or if that fails, how would I answer this properly? Thanks
User avatar #75081 to #75051 - byposted (01/04/2015) [-]
I remember being presented with this material in high-school English class.

I had looked forward to writing a truthful response to it, though the teacher did not afford me the opportunity. The reading was not intended to beget classroom controversy, you see, but to get "feet wet" on "racism," which was a topic in the next unit.

If I were to write on Mcintosh now, I would begin by deconstructing her feminist presupposition ("male privilege"). It is indeed fascinating that men cannot see what a band of loud, hairy women can. She writes that male "oppressiveness" is "unconscious." This tacitly concedes that men act as they do by nature. Her view of gender relations must be a "social-construction" of sorts, which has no bearing on the real world.

Her views on race, or "skin," as she understands it, certainly suggest so, in how devoid they are of pertinence. All of her identifiers of White "skin privilege" are nonsense and/or simply silly.

>I can if I wish arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time

An "African-American" can move back to Africa and enjoy the level of civilization his people maintained. A European-American is taught that the country his ancestors built is one which must be embracing of all. He has no refuge from this doctrine, given that Europe has itself become a continent of foreign migrants.

There are many such points, where the inverses are accurate. Number seven goes that Whites are taught that they made civilization. I remember school textbooks regularly butting Blacks, other minorities and women into the development of the United States and Europe. My textbook on "European civilization" even had a mulatto on the cover, whose life was a testament, so it went, to how "cosmopolitan" the continent had become.

>muh band-aid

Look at that! Pebar's free market fixed it. No store is left, these days, without darker colored bandages, in a great victory against the association between "white" and "normal."

I wrote it up yesterday, read your comment and realized I basically had all of what you said. Goddamn the part about the band-aid annoyed me to no end. If an educational establishment forces us to write about an article made by someone who equates the lack of band-aids that match your skin colour with systematic racism, then I'm honestly losing all hope for everything.

can you swallow your anger and deal with ignorant people for a better grade?
If not, I really have no idea how you tell your teacher you disagree

People like that have gut feelings that can never waver, not really anything you can do. even if you bring up facts and stats, those will be discounted through some absurd loop of logic and systematic racism

No, no you are a fucking idiot.

You don't just give up, you don't just let them step over you like that.

Do you remember the school system, you REALLY think they'll risk their jobs or get into hot water for this? No, if he writes it well and offers up good enough support which is very easy for a 250-350 long responce they'll have to give him a good mark. Also not all teachers are as liberal as what they teach, like my happened not to give a fuck.

First off, what's your professor like? If he/she is the type of professor to issue this stuff, I suspect they may also be the type to deliver a much harsher grade on the essay for writing in defiance to the point to it, rather than support to it.
By the same token, they may have this to challenge the class and get a feel for how the general political attitude of the student body.

ohh my god. Dood, you have an AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE HER THE FINGER IN TEXT FORM.

TAKE IT.

I'm sure you know how to fucking write arguments, make sure you provide large amounts of criticism and your emotion. For example, you could say stuff like "I am angered by"... ect.

And don't even worry about getting a bad mark, 250-350 words is a fucking joke. If you write it fine she'll have no choice but to give you a good mark or you could take it up to the principle for marking bias.

"I am angered... by egalitarians, who suggest that women and negroes are the rightful inheritors of European civilization, crafted by White men. They actually represent the tombstone, which, if anything, inherits the decaying corpse of what my WHITE ancestors built. Fuck niggers and womyn. Bloodshed is needed to correct what they've done foul."

srsly don't embed yourself into an argumentative essay unless you're telling some sort of a tale.

Do real Libertarians take Ayn Rand seriously?
User avatar #75022 to #75020 - pebar (01/03/2015) [-]
It should be pointed out that there are two primary sides of libertarianism: deontilogical and consequentialist, (and of course a mix)

Deontilogical libertarians take rights very, VERY seriously and tend to be more extreme. These people are more likely to be ancaps. These people may take Ayn Rand seriously.

Consequentialist libertarians believe individual freedom and the free market is the best way to advance society. These people are more open minded to government involvement but are still skeptical.

So yes, some "real" libertarians do take her seriously, but others "real;" libertarians do not.

>defend a guy who breaks into a house

Don't you see? The burglar is actually the victim. Throughout his life, he was dealt a short-stick by society, and that's wrong. He never received a proper education, and always acted up in school, not due to any innate limitations, but because his environment was substandard. The state needs to do more to correct this. We can help by donating to the Din Doo defense fund.
