    True. It's like reading the twitter feed of any female public figure. There are many suggestions of rape from both men who like and who dislike the woman. However, I suspect that the vast majority...

    ??? So, UVA says that students of various cultures are not welcome in any building unless it says "Multicultural" on it? Your reply has opposite meaning depending whether it...

    Yeah that highlights another aspect where it may be even harder for a white gay man than a straight black man to be elected. Even among people that are not only liberal but even very left wing and...

    Does the existence of a "Multicultural Student Center" mean that there is a Student Center where people of various cultures are NOT welcome? And if not, what is the difference between a...

    A black guy did. Why not a gay guy?[/QUOTE]

    Because as widespread as racism is in the US, gays are still less trusted. And while the vast majority of people who would refuse to vote for a black...

    I don't either. I did not say crimes were identical, just that pardons/commutations for 'white collar criminals' (phrase used in the OP) are very common.[/quote]

    Abortion-relevant science

    This is NOT a thread to debate whether abortion should be legal or is moral, b/c any such debate ultimately rests upon subjective moral values.

    Rather it's a thread about establishing the...

    So by "Drain the swamp", Trump actually meant release more leeches and venomous reptiles into the swamp.

    It's understandable. After all, he wants to strongly reinforce the precedent that...

    In general, I agree. There are way too many news cycles and bouts of social media outrage being driven by a handful or even a single person saying/doing something stupid and then it being cast as...

    I think religion-free spirituality is largely a game of semantics. If you dispense with theism, religion, notions of the supernatural, and other faith based beliefs (like that there is any "meaning"...

    Of course. Not only has the Bible had huge influence, but is itself the product of factors and influences that are highly relevant to understanding humans and society. It's important to understand...

    Pete has a very mixed (from ok with Pete to outright hostile) reputation among his black constituents in South Bend (which has a large black population), and is happy to take credit for improvements...

    I believe that OWIP is from the Chicago area while your profile indicates you reside in San Diego. I believe that whatever political machinations you attempted to the contrary, OWIP is a better...

    Those who've wronged us are likely to so again. So, an aggressive response to those who have wronged us is very often protective, preventative, and highly adaptive, as are the the feelings of anger...

    Local terms: The Chicago Metropolitan Area [aka: "Chicagoland"] is made up of Cook County (which contains the City of Chicago, as well as 'Suburban Cook County') and the Collar Counties: DuPage,...

    How many is "many"? What sheriff's department should do is go investigate those involuntary cases, not persecute people doing nothing wrong!

    Insulting a person for their actions and who happens to be black isn't racist.
    Insulting them b/c they are black or insulting their race is racist.

    Rush's statement is an example of the latter...

    I agree that it isn't actually "hypocritical". It's just a shitty, selfish, immoral thing to do. She doesn't want her own life ruined by raising a child and recognizes that as a consequence, but...

    That's the point. It didn't stop Trump from winning because evangelicals and all Trump supporters have no strong objections to rape, misogyny, white supremacy, and fascistic threats against those who...
