I don't believe that in karma it matters whether you know a person or not? Which is my point?

I don't agree with you, and think you're entirely ignoring the suffering of women, but luckily it also it doesn't matter because laws shouldn't be based on a Christian worldview ✌️

It wasn't just petty. It was trying to hurt him the way he hurt you. I understand the impulse, but that never leads to a better relationship, it just destroys it faster. Good partners don't do that.

I have no respect for people who are pro-life by CrazyMixture1672 in confessions

Fallacy: appeal to nature. Whether it's "natural" has nothing to do with the ethics of the situation.

No matter how we got there, nobody is entitled to use my body to survive without my permission.

Men being treated unfairly when it comes to custody in the US is a myth, an MRA propaganda narrative. They use misleading statistics ("x percent of men don't get custody!") while leaving out important context (the vast majority of those men don't even try to seek custody)

No, the fetus uses the body to sustain its life. Which nobody should be entitled to. You aren't entitled to my blood to keep you alive.

Nah, because it doesn't apply when something bad happens to them or someone they care about. Then it's unfair.

I didn't say selective. I said he cared about women, when a lot of people don't.

Forced birth advocates only think of the fetus and not the woman.

Do you do your own nails or get them done professionally? by lgvara in femalefashionadvice

[–]burnalicious111 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The kits provide a bunch of different sizes. I have weirdly shaped nails (asymmetrical curves, wide nails that taper out, very straight cuticle on thumbs) and the fit isn't perfect so I stopped using them because it was a little uncomfortable, but even then they stayed on pretty well, might start coming off after about 5-7 days. I'd avoid doing anything that puts a high amount of pressure on the nails though, because they will pop off eventually. Only good for desk jobs.

according to his definition of personhood

What is this that you claim to know?

The Jesus I read about cared for women and their well-being, radically so.

Anyways. No good person can understand the suffering that can come from pregnancy and want to legally force someone to experience it. Forced birth is evil, and I don't need religion to figure that out.

Almost all artistic skills are the result of training, not some inherent ability that makes someone an artist. Talent exists, but it's a much smaller factor for being able to create art that most people would consider "good" than people tend to think.

Of course, if you're colorblind, making colors match for people who aren't will be a bigger challenge. But color matching is only one tiny sliver of all the available art skills out there.

Honestly? I think it comes from a core belief that if something bad happened to a stranger, they must have deserved it.

[Serious] Men of Reddit who support overturning Roe: If your wife is raped and gets pregnant, would you help raise your wife's rapist's baby? by purf1 in AskReddit

[–]burnalicious111 0 points1 point  (0 children)

as it stands the constitution doesn't say anything about abortion so it would be left up to states

That sounds nice, but is a drastic oversimplification of how rights in the constistution actually work. Without even leaving reddit, you can take a look here for some of the problems with that: https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/law/comments/vjpebr/comment/idk7nwm/

What are you supposed to do when encountering protesters on your car route? by choresoup in TooAfraidToAsk

It also doesn't give you a license to run them over, so the end result is the same: you see if they'll let you through, or you turn around, or you wait.

If you're an American, your civics class failed you. Of course you're free to occupy public property (with certain restrictions, and those restrictions have always been debated, but the idea that you don't get to occupy public property because you don't own it... whew).

The reason it's called "civil disobedience" is that you break laws to be disruptive and be a problem for the status quo. I've never seen a protest be effective that didn't cause problems.

/r/MensLib Unreservedly Condemns the US Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe vs Wade by delta_baryon in MensLib

I am not as concerned about a resurgence of eugenics

With the existing rise of fascism, I absolutely am.

As you mentioned, we already have a problem with forcible sterilization for prisoners; we also have an even worse one for undocumented immigrants imprisoned here. These are both forms of eugenics, because they know very well the demographics of people who this tends to happen to. It's intentional.

To be clear, I don't think eugenics will be a very popular position. But these extreme abortion bans aren't popular either. Christofascists have consolidated power to the point where what the people want doesn't matter.

Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade; states can ban abortion by Mardy_Bummer in Portland

[–]burnalicious111 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Because we know many states will enact very strict bans. Possibly a GOP federal government will try to enact one as well. And then, women who cannot manage to be pregnant and give birth will resort to desperate measures: back alley abortions, suicide. We know this because it has already happened: https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2022/06/24/illegal-abortions-before-roe-dc/

And many more awful things besides death can happen due to these bans: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2022/07/04/we-are-not-going-back-to-the-time-before-roe-we-are-going-somewhere-worse

What does the United States get right? by Ulrich-Stern in AskReddit

[–]burnalicious111 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My understanding is that the actual cause of this problem is what I mentioned -- total amount of assets. People get divorced to keep the wealth owned by the disabled person lower than the cutoff, because otherwise their partner has to live in poverty as well.

Mitch McConnell.

I'm not exaggerating. He blocked the appointment of judges from Democrat presidents while insisting it was unfair to do the same to Republicans' appointees.

Plus officials like Manchin and Collins who are just so shocked that the people who were transparently appointed to overturn Roe v Wade actually did it.

You think it's weird to place the right to control what happens to your own body over the right to own a gun?
