You know, smart phones have the ability to record video and take pictures too. These days, when somebody has their phone out, you don't know if they're texting, browsing the web, or shooting video of you, and nobody seems to have a problem with that. So maybe take your Luddite bullshit somewhere else.

Maybe the kid will be fine. But if he's not, if he comes out disfigured or developes a severe mental illness, that mom will spend the rest of her life wondering if it's her fault. "Did I fuck up my kid's whole life because I couldn't give up weed for 9 months?" Is not a question you want hanging over your head.

Feb 23, 2013 Brandon J. commented on Vatican Denies Pope-Toppling Gay Sex Scandal.
I realize the Vatican are a bunch of despicable assholes, but I don't see how you can be mad at them for denying this scandal. I mean, that's just what you do with scandals, you deny them, doesn't matter if they're true or not. How would it help the church if they were open and honest about fucking a bunch of gay prostitutes? Would you be less angry? I'm not saying the Catholic Church is in the right here, they're just playing by the time honored formula of the public scandal: First comes the accusations, then the denial, then the evidence surfaces, then a half-hearted apology.

Because if you want to murder 30 people, you should at least have to reload.

I find your stance on this issue surprisingly conservative, Mistress. I mean, just because polyamorous marriage would present legal and logistical difficulties doesn't mean it shouldn't happen, or you shouldn't fight for it. "Being in love doesn't have to include a ring or a big white cake" is a terrible argument against marriage equality, and I might add, can be used against same-sex marriage. Your anecdotal experiences and discussions with your friends about Polyamory does not prove there is no support out there for Poly Marriage. I'm sorry you had some bad experiences with cohabitation, but you need to realize that not all people are introverts and not all partners are like that property-obsessed ex of yours. You mentioned that you could count on one hand the number of happy poly households that have cohabitated for many years. Don't you think at least some of those people would enjoy things like hospital visitation rights, next of kin status, and adoption privileges? Sure, Polyamorous Marriage doesn't seem likely now, but neither did gay marriage before Stonewall, or even 20 years ago. So when Poly Marriage does happen, maybe don't stand in the way?

Publicly badmouthing the company you work for and its customers is one of the dumbest things you can do as an employee. Don't do it, you'll be fired. There is no such thing as an employer who finds this kind of stuff good natured fun. It is damaging to their business and they'd be a fool not to get rid of you.

If there is any moral lesson to be learned from I, Anonymous it is "You are no better than the person you hate." There is a clear trend of the authors outing themselves as horrible people while ranting at the horrible actions of others. This one takes the cake though; here's a guy who used to be friends with Nazis, fantasizes about hitting women, and has no problem using sexist slurs, and yet he is DISGUSTED by the actions of this other person.

The problem isn't wealthy Seattle hipsters and their 2 child families, the problem is explosive population growth in China and Africa. We need to do more to promote birth control and family planning in the Third World.

Exactly Charles, fucking EXACTLY. Why does our society have to be so damn reactionary?
