It is a scientific fact. Everyone hates everyone else Does Racism exist? Yes of Course But so does Sexism, Ageism, Religious Intolerance, Class Warfare, Prejudice, Homophobia, Transphobia, Arachnophobia, (I am sure this is a very long list). Whatever your reason for hating your fellow (please insert personal pronoun). The least that you can do is to be polite and sincere. That way we don't have to go around killing each other :cheers:
I am staying out of this ridiculous argument, but as a circumcised male, who has been circumcised his entire life, didn't feel a thing as it was done at my birth, and happens to know via education that whether it actually has any health benefit that it is done for purported health benefit I resent being told I am mutilated. Do we call men with piercings mutilated?
You don't like it, don't like it. Maybe you are unused to seeing circumcised penises. I am not. A preference or unfamiliarity with something does not give someone the right to slap a derogatory description on people. A preference to heterosexuality and unfamiliarity with homosexuality gets us called faggots, poofters, fudgepackers, fruit loops, and a host of other things. They show intolerance. Are they ok too because it's a "preference"? I didn't ask to be circumcised, nor am I asking not to be. I am asking to be respected whether I have been circumcised or not. I don't go around calling uncircumsised men "doggy dick".

@raphjd In the developed world? Which developed world are you talking about? In my country multiple people have tattoos.
It takes a real douche bag, in the best DNC vein, to screech about dividing the country, while acting like a total asshole toward those that disagree with them. Of course, an ass clown that votes for Honest Joe would have no problem with this since that's what your supreme leader does.
If I'm a Russina Troll, then you are Pelosi's snatch.
I wonder if you and Creepy Uncle Joe share other traits.
@raphjd I wonder if they will create a NEW Donald Trump when Trump wins his 2nd term in 2024.. or will they use the same old one.. which is actually the robot animatron they made of Hillary Clinton, but then just stretched a mask of Trump on top of it.
You forgot the AP story about 70% of calls to Poison Control is for Ivermectin issues. It was less than 2% and in many cases, it was asking for information, not about medical needs.
The examples of "aggregators" not doing even basic homework on the stuff they're regurgitating are many and varied... on all sides.
In a perfect world, we'd find a way BACK to making news reporting a non-profit enterprise... so that there was no need to hyper-inflate stories, and no value in click-bait!
“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
This is getting pretty wide-spread coverage - and I mention that because this is a 1-off case... a substitute teacher in a school district (Las Vegas) that is practically begging for nearly ANYONE to become a teacher due to shortages and COVID medical leaves. The district doesn't claim it didn't happen, and the "teacher" is being disciplined - but that is a "private" matter, so we'll probably never get to hear about the fallout...
It doesn't make it right - but substitute teachers have done MUCH MUCH worse, and received a LOT less coverage in the media!
GWB gave us the Patriot Act and Obama expanded it beyond anything GWB ever dreamed of. Now the Dems are here to finish Obama's work.
The UK's "constitution" only exists in your (generic) head. Several PMs and people running for PM have promised a written one, but they all lied. Gordon Brown was the last to promise a written constitution, but after becoming PM, he immediately backtracked on that promise.
The Scottish government has been shitting on our legal and human rights via various laws and they are ramping up the draconian laws every time we turn around.
Australia and NZ don't ascribe rights in their constitutions, so they can shit all over their people as they please.
What?! You don't understand that there is a very real story about a preschool teacher who made TikTok videos who talked about teaching toddlers about genitals and asked on Twitter what kind of permission slip she would need to teach the toddlers in her care about kink.
She has since been fired.
This was all in the last month.
While this article (OP) may have been altered, the other one is completely real.
3 teachers in 2 weeks have been fired for teaching kids things they have no business bringing into the classroom.
