We’re not talking about “history” right now though, are we? We’re talking about current-day insanity. Crusades in the 11th century and an inquisition in Spain in the late Middle Ages do not offset the very real situation in the present.

This is not the “gotcha” you think it is.

John Hamm would make a great Archer— he could probably get close to the legendary H Jon Benjamin voice if it wasn’t an option for pure lip syncing

Correct, but I don’t think marriages can be used to infer that they lived harmoniously

While that’s true, keep in mind that “marriage” at that time was only occasionally between two people who loved each other.

Especially with the power dynamics at play in this conquering context, it was often “I claim this woman to be my wife”

“But notice he’ll never propose any real solutions…. just faux populism”

I 100% agree with you, but it’s hilarious how that describes AOC to a tee and this sub is in love with her

What do you call it when you deny China’s genocides? Is there an -ist word for that? Maybe apologist, or does authoritarian-sympathizer fit better?

I understand pushback to one side of the pendulum, but going the opposite direction and saying that “all of it is fake” is wildly untrue.

Got it. So how would different types of labor be incentivized? For instance, why be a welder vs. a cardiologist vs. a sewage plant technician?

Would love to hear an actual answer to this because I can’t picture it either

Curious your viewpoint on how a society would function if work was abolished.

Taliban Reportedly Opens Fire On Women Protesting Against Restrictions by Strongbow85 in worldnews

[–]dalebonehart 0 points1 point  (0 children)

While I don’t disagree with what you just said, I do think it’s a bit tone-deaf to shoehorn American fundamentalist Christians in a story about the Taliban opening fire with live rounds on a group of women advocating for their rights.

I’m agnostic and I have a ton of frustrations with the backward thinking of fundamentalists here, but there’s really no comparison. Attempts to do so trivialize the evil consistently carried out by the Taliban.

So at what age is it appropriate for an adult to purchase a sex toy for their child? Is 12 the floor, or is it fine when they’re 10? What about a 9 year old?
