@25 - It's clear just by your last comment that you are out of your league here. Feel free to bow out graciously now.

@10 - Here's what I've learned so far:

Lawmakers have created unsafe laws. Many people are able to identify this, and express dismay at said laws.

Minors' lives can be used to create probable cause for their murders, even though the murderer would have no way of knowing anything about them.

I have the right (in Florida) to stalk and confront anyone I perceive to be dangerous and then shoot them when they return my aggression.

I have no legal obligation to follow orders from law-enforcement and have every right to create dangerous situations and not face any consequences for my actions.

Race is used to determine how much someone deserved the violence done to them.

Americans are confused about the differences between the social constructs of race and ethnicity. Also, only white people get to be racist.

Shooting a person through the heart deserves less time (read: no time) than shooting no one.

Hispanic is an ethnicity, not a race. You can be black and Hispanic, or white and Hispanic in this country (or white/black and non-Hispanic, etc).

@2 - This is for you. But since you may not read it: "Indeed, the problems begin when a man [or woman] starts offering solutions without understanding the group’s history or the history of the problem. Or, worse, when he intimates that a group has not already been working on solutions to their problem and that he’s the first damned genius to ever realize that perhaps problems need fixing. As if the group hadn’t been smart enough to recognize that their problems might need fixing and hadn’t already been doing some stuff."

@5- I think what he was referring to was the evolution from capitalism to socialism.

@biffp - how you could tell social awkwardness from an internet thread is beyond me, but you can stop. Keshmeshi is amazing.

@ McGee - spot on.

@12 - The testosterone levels you're referring to have never been conclusively proven to have the aggression effects you describe on males. They have seen that males are more sensitive about social status when increased testosterone is introduced. An interesting example, from the NIH: The Influence of Testosterone on Human A…. It may also increase sex drive, but not nearly as much as external and internal stress, diet and your attitudes regarding sex itself do.

Separately, this guy sounds fucking (ha!) awful. DTMFA

@8 - That would be nice. But some sects require proselytizing in order to gain entry to heaven. Sucks.

Why yes, yes it is different. Because you're asking kids to not eat pork or drive a car, not deny an inherent part of their humanity. What a great question though.
