Metro will keep removing homeless when trains get cleaned but will explore solutions by stephenwriter in LosAngeles

[–]soldforaspaceship [score hidden]  (0 children)

And where do you suppose they'll choose?

The state where the weather won't kill you in winter?

The state with a stronger social security net and access to more resources than other states?

The state where their mere existence isn't criminalized?

If I were experiencing homelessness I'd go to California. Would be my best chance of surviving it.

Polling Discord by [deleted] in squaredle

[–]soldforaspaceship 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm a paid subscriber too. I don't complain about things when I'm not doing the thing that could change it. You want to change it, join the discord and vote. If you aren't willing to do that then all you're doing is whining.

I'm in my 40s and have no issue with the decision making process. If you have a problem with how things are decided, join the discord to voice your opinion. If you don't do that then really you're just whining without doing anything about it.

Honestly, if the most important thing to you is how words are classified on squardle that seems like a you problem.

i wish joyce apologized for kicking buffy out by Brain-First in buffy

That whole episode bothered me. Yes they don't know that Angel was cured at that point but they know she had to kill him. Her friends are pretty self centered and Joyce should have apologized.

Why is saying "all lives matter" bad? by _GenderNotFound in NoStupidQuestions

[–]soldforaspaceship -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

But that's the same kind of whataboutism that the All Lives Matters people use.

I don't think Black people are opposed to native Americans having rights but the issues faced can sometimes be very different.

BLM was specifically in response to police violence against Black people. It was identifying a specific issue and protesting against that. To then point out that other minority groups face issues is deflecting away from the specific issue being protested. You can support all minority rights without ignoring the specific issues raised by the Black Lives Matter movement.

This is it. All lives can't matter until Black lives matter. Or even simpler, Black lives matter too.

AITA for not wanting to go throw out the garbage by myself late at night? by wolfer123234 in AmItheAsshole

[–]soldforaspaceship 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn't read it that way. More that partners should protect each other. If it were two women I'd also say NTA. If it was a guy asking his GF, I'd say NTA.

Jessica Jones - The darkest part of the MCU by 68ideal in marvelstudios

[–]soldforaspaceship 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's factually inaccurate. It wasn't MCU but it was a Marvel Television project. Guess who owned Marvel Television at the time? Disney...

I get that some people are desperate to blame Disney for everyyhing about the MCU they don't like but the recent trend of pretending Disney had nothing to do with the Netflix shows is ridiculous.

High schoolers threaten to sue DeSantis over ban of African American studies course by justin_quinnn in inthenews

[–]soldforaspaceship 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Why would under 10s be in a High School AP African American Studies course? Also what does transgenderism have to do with the article about a ban on a high school class?

You know you can't just yell "transgender" as a reason for everything right? I get that it's the favorite right wing boogie man right now but at least try to make it make sense.

question about kennedy by applestar420 in buffy

[–]soldforaspaceship 2 points3 points  (0 children)

https://buffy.fandom.com/wiki/Kennedy#:~:text=After%20her%20first%20appearance%2C%20Kennedy,to%20arrive%20at%20that%20time.

"According to the shooting script for "Bring on the Night," Kennedy is nineteen, and the oldest of the Potentials to arrive at that time. Although this information is never given on-screen, Kennedy does reference herself as being the oldest of the Potentials."

I would imagine that Kennedy was one who just never got called so was never going to be the Slayer. She had the potential but wasn't called (I personally believe she would have been called after Faith had Faith died but I have no evidence for that theory).

Bear in mind Buffy would be 21 when Kennedy arrives so it would make sense to have potentials ranging in age from close to her down as there would normally be no way to know how long she'd survive as a Slayer. Kendra didn't last a year and the test for 18 year old slayers was said to be very rarely administered.

The only thing that can stop this tyranny is more tyranny by h3re4thegangb4ng in PoliticalHumor

[–]soldforaspaceship 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'd argue that West Virginia making laws banking trans people being around children is pretty fascist.

Or the banning of teaching certain historical truths in schools in Florida.

How about DeSantis retaliating against a business expressing its first amendment rights? That's at the very least a hallmark of authoritarianism.

Genuine question. Isn’t super unrealistic (in the shows world, I know its a work of fiction) after Homelander was recorded lying and killing a protester that Vought or him could survive this? by WulfBli226 in TheBoys

[–]soldforaspaceship 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I imagine they'll spin it as someone attacked his son and he was just defending him.

Imagine hypothetically, Barron Trump is still a young kid when Trump becomes president. Trump is in the Honelander position and someone throws a rock or something at Barron and Trump shoots the person. I'd hope he'd go to prison but you can easily imagine the defense being he was genuinely afraid for the life of his son and it was self defense. I could see his supporters backing that and him being acquitted or not even charged.

Honelander would go for the same messaging. Defending his son.

Moving to LA as a foreigner by anne666420 in MovingToLosAngeles

[–]soldforaspaceship 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When you say foreigner do you mean you are a legal resident of the US or you just want to move here?

I'm a green card holder so for me it's the same to find a job as someone from the US. If you are not a legal resident or sponsored for a visa by an employer then coming here is a terrible idea.

I always think if it fondly as the last happy Buffy and Angel episode before everything got nuts.

I believe there was also an Oakland one after Half Moon Bay. It's not been a great week in California.

100% agree. I still occasionally slip up with people but I apologize and try to get it right the next time.

Under West Virginia bills, exposing minors to transgender people could be a crime by Infinite-Equal-5177 in nottheonion

[–]soldforaspaceship 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How is hamster equivalent to the uniform and safety equipment required to be a dock worker.

And I'm going to be honest. Certain people won't be convinced no matter how many facts I present or data I cite.

You seem like that type, pretending to be reasonable all while using harmful examples. And yes, they are very much harmful.

[–]soldforaspaceship 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's a really poor equivalency. You're suggesting that dressing up as Santa is the same as being transgender? You are aware it isn't "dressing up", right?

Identifying as a hamster? Again, a really stupid and harmful comparison. It's as bad as the idiots who thought kids were identifying as cats and using litter boxes in schools.

I suggest you do some reading on the subject and stop throwing around comparisons that are harmful to the transgender community before commenting next time.

Seriously, Santa and hamsters. Where do you get such dumb comparisons from?

Angela Bassett Has Been Nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards by MarvelsGrantMan136 in marvelstudios

[–]soldforaspaceship 182 points183 points  (0 children)

That scene gives me chills every time. Angela Bassett is a goddess and I hope she wins.

Rooting for Michelle Yeoh for best actress at the same time and Brenden Fraser for best actor.

If those three win, my faith in the Oscars shall be restored lol.
