You being offended, or even worse, being offended for someone else, doesn't dictate another person's usage of language, especially if it's a word in common usage.

That being said, I guess you can just continue modding words and beleifs until you get what you want. Don't think it isn't ridiculous, though. And people notice
It's not to do with my feelings or anybody else's. I've explained what it's about. I expect you would disagree with that as well but at least you would be disagreeing with the actual point. Not that it matters, I hope you will humour me even if you think it's ridiculous.

This is the crux of will's sociopathy. It's bad to be offended but it's WORSE to give a **** about other people. Empathy is a disease to these guys.

Keep banning everything until you get the type of conversation you deem appropriate. Maybe one day you'll end up with goofgaller blowing fly every post and 2+2 politics will be perfect.

"******ed" is a perfectly acceptable word and it has been for many years. If you have an issue with it, then make a mod ruling on it and end the discussion like you do with others because you want to protect something or other.

This is not how the world works.
Just another post that proves what a miserable, deplorable piece of **** you are. You don't deserve to breathe the same air as anyone that is a caring human being.

First, that word is not acceptable, not even a little bit. Not even close. Second, it doesn't matter if it's acceptable or not, you don't have the freedom to say whatever you want on here. You don't get any freedom of speech protection on this or any other forum. The mods will decide what you can or cannot say. If you don't like it, take a ****ing hike. This world is better off without you in it to spew your nonsense.

Until that point, your support of Trump consisted of having announced you thought he'd win because you saw rural lawn signs in PA. It's pathetic how ridiculously you lie.



This comes from a handful of garbage links posted by lunatic-fringe media organizations like The Federalist, involving self-selected polls that don't pass the laugh test. Your average conservative IRL is a completely miserable, angry, chronically complaining human being who spends half their day lamenting about how their country is being taken away from them. Just look at your average righty's social media postings; even with Trump in office, all they do is ***** and moan and fight their ridiculous imaginary battles like the "War On Christmas" or the taking away of rights of heterosexual white religious males, which exist nowhere but in their minds.

On the contrary, I think that was wil's Inside Baseball secret knowledge. He knew he was supporting trump and was lying on this forum and perhaps other places, and knew that numerous friends and family were doing the same. So, he had his finger on the pulse of the Shytrump voter and leveraged it.

I wanted to mess around and bring up that this had so much weight it might amount to an angleshoot in the bets, but I don't really believe that. He simply notched a W even though it might be the most Pyrrhic of Pyrrhic victories.

Btw, 'classic/al liberal' means 'conservative'.

I posted this in July 2016 after coming back from a hiatus:

Getting married isn't even that big of a deal to many people, but having children is absolutely life-changing.

There is good reason why people change so much after having children. Perspectives and priorities change. I don't agree with most things I believed in when I was in my 20s as I do now.

As far as racial issues, I think it is more based on belief. Just as you would be suspicious of how you were treated if you were travelling to a foreign country, I believe many minorities feel the same way here in America because they are constantly told so. When someone is a jerk to me I don't start asking if they did it because my eyes are slanted. I just think they are having a bad day.

I personally think my eyes are beautiful, btw.
That's fair, and I'd suspect nobody disagrees. There are numerous exercises created to help young people prepare for having children when they get older, like practicing with a pet, or that weird thing where they have a bag of flour and are made to carry it around everywhere and make sure it doesn't get damaged in any way.

But, in the context of this tangent, you said people who are too emotionally invested should not be attempting a rational discussion on the subject. In this vein, people who do have children shouldn't be discussing it, yet you've said the opposite, notably to batair in general and to numerous people in the 'spank debate' thread.

But, whatev, the following is what most interests me, to the point that I'm digging up a post from a year ago:

That was right around the time you put me on ignore so I don't even know if you ever even saw it, but to tie this all together, yes, I'm aware people people can change greatly after having children.

Heh, weirdly enough I was reading it and assuming it was a wil post until I got halfway through and thought, uh, this doesn't sound right, and looked over to see it was none other than monistat. Duh.

You being a bbv'er is absolutely no surprise. A forum founded by rejects who whined so much they were expelled from the strat forums.

Having a pet does not prepare you for having a child in any single way. To compare the two is a joke. Anyone who thinks the two are even similar is a complete fool.

Just another example of the social ineptitide of 2+2ers. Saying such a thing isn't just wrong, it's insane.

This is the last time I'll respond to your posts, as I'm putting you on ignore. When 7even comes along, I'll put him on ignore also. I have no intentions of interacting with you.

Re: President Trump

You mean slowly stepping up your responsibilities and showing yourself you can progress when it comes to taking care of things outside of yourself doesn't prepare you for parenthood especially the decision? If anything a pet is a good barometer. If you can't handle that then how are you ready to take an even bigger step with a human life?

**** you are dumb. I'm sure you'll blame liberals when your kids wind up dumb as a bag of rocks daddy.

It's obvious that is is a problem. It's a form of Munchausen by proxy. White liberals love creating issues out of nothing. So many of you have gone to college to actually become social justice warriors. It's essentially a business for many, and for the rest of you it's simply narcissism.

I'm sorry if you dislike it but that's the truth.

A pet is nothing compared to having a child. They aren't even in the same universe. It's like saying taking a bath prepares you for swimming.

You should talk to people who've had both. There is no comparison. I've had pets. If one of my pets gets hit by a car I don't cancel my dinner reservations that night. A child, not so much.

Re: President Trump

My first reaction was, wow, I must reeaaally trigger wil. We all knew he was blatantly lying about why he initially put me on ignore but to see it laid so bare is still incredible. I try to be nice and diplomatic and post some substance and get that reply.

But then I realized, holy ****, he only just now figured out I am also 5ive!

It's probably still a little from column A and a little from B but still incredible nonetheless.

It's already turning.

When CNN can't even cover for the Mueller investigation, it's over:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/06/opinio...ion/index.html

Every Republican in 2018 will get to remind their constituency that their opponent bought into the Russian bull****. This is 1998 any more - the Dems have lost the plot.
