Of course, people should never use getting drunk as an excuse for raping anyone, but that's just sickening.

WTF

When I started Uni some of the older students made signs that said "Fathers, kiss your virgin daughters goodbye!"

I thought that was bad.

That a great deal of scientific progress has been delayed by magical thinking shall we say.

Peppa Pig is very popular in China for some strange reason, especially since most shows, movies and books that have talking animals are banned in China.

And contrary to popular belief, Winnie-the-Pooh isn't banned in China. I think he was but then the ban was lifted. Which is also odd since Pooh is also a talking animal.

That's new to me. Sounds crazy. I guess a government that bans "sissy men" on tv is capable of anything crazy.

If I don't like the way that people treat me, I can always leave a location and let people go along their merry way.

Yeah, I saw a video the other day where a Karen was flipping out at this woman and her friend because they had her pet pig out for a walk. The pig was on a leash and wasn't doing anything wrong or harmful, just minding its own business, but the Karen reacted as if the lady was walking a wild alligator or something and said that she was going to report it.

Maybe the Karen thought all pigs have the swine flu, but she never mentioned that. :)

It's not always a good idea to call people out on their obnoxious behaviour.

How ironic it is that some people who talk like total boomers that think people on the spectrum are nothing but snowflakes get extremely offended by the word "neurotypicals". And even say so.

That there are diseases that have never been cured despite the fact, being cured throughout the rest of the world.
