Saw this piece of trash on my facebook
Actually, there are plenty of rapists who have sex on a regular basis.
What about people who rape their own children? They had to be attractive enough for someone to willingly have children with them, but that didn’t stop them from being rapists.
Who else thinks a good start to reform the welfare system would be to have recipients do mandatory volunteer work or community service for their benefits?
A good start would be to raise the minimum wage so fewer people need welfare.
Welfare was intended to help those who literally can not help themselves. People like orphans, the elderly, or the sick.
Not to help people who just don’t feel like helping themselves.
“Not to help people who just don’t feel like helping themselves. “
Like corporations, which receive a lot more handouts than poor people do?
Many of the people who receive welfare work 70 hours a week, and corporations receive more handouts than poor people.
Tell that to corporations who receive massive bailouts.
"But sir, I was drunk I couldn’t have consented to hitting that family of four with my car…"
"Officer you don’t understand I was drunk when I smashed that beer bottle over his head. I didn’t know what was going on it’s not my fault."
"I was drinking, clearly I had to many…I didn’t know I was taking my clothes off it just happened. I can’t be held accountable."
Do you find these acceptable? Do you think this person should be held accountable for their actions? Yea I think so too..then why is this acceptable?
"He raped me, I was drunk when I said yes."
Answer is, it’s not. One is no different than the other. One poor choice is the same as all poor choices. You are accountable for all or none. And don’t say ‘well a guy had to ask a drunk girl’ the choice is still yours in the end. That option of ‘yes or no’ is still up to you. If you say no and he takes you home anyway than YES that was rape. Even if you are not kicking and screaming. But if your answer is yes and you willingly go home with someone…that was your consent. That was your choice to make.
If you honestly don’t think so than you have no right to judge a drunk driver who hits and kills a bystander. It wasn’t their choice, they were drunk.
You’re comparing a drunk person making a choice to hurt others to a drunk person being manipulated by someone. When you’re drunk, you’re responsible for your own choices, but you’re not responsible for what someone else chooses to do to you.
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!
You mean we don’t still take people’s brains out and rub them in salt to dispel the devil and cure headaches? I’m pretty sure that’s established medieval protocol, wouldn’t want to mix things up.
thank you for destroying this nerdshit
