    [–] I went to hug a girl and she grabbed my hand and shook it, what are the most isolated places on earth known to man? acesea -4 points ago in AskMen

    Yes if you get all the way through a date and he hasn't murdered you already, saying your not interested in a public space will totally turn a man who otherwise wouldn't murder into a murderer

    Such a petty distinction. You get my point it's a generic disadvantage

    [–] Marilyn Manson to #MeToo movement: ‘Say it to police, not to the press’ acesea 1 points ago in news

    saying "it just be nice to be someone who hasn't experienced sexual assault" is really a problem. Parading people around as privileged or pampered for not experiencing a form of assault just forces them to dig deeper to construe some experience as a sexual assault so they can actually gain legitimacy in the discussion. Which actually further increases the issue. Can't you just be genuinely glad someone hasn't been assaulted rather than upset there isn't another view which totally supports your narrative.

    1. It must be nice to not experience sexual assault.

    2. Proceed to provide example of person who you think did but who doesn't believe he experienced it.

    Does it occur to anyone that questioning of this me too thing is just about having a standard definition for sexual assault or harassment?

    [–] Transgender man talks about how differently he was treated as a woman vs man acesea 4 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in TwoXChromosomes

    I imagine the perspective of someone who has seen both sides gives context and comparisons that nobody else could provide. If as a man you haven't experienced X or X is experienced differently by women, you can just trust them and believe them but it's sort of like an experiment where you can say when I'm a man X doesn't happen and when I'm a woman X does happen. You can isolate variables and know that X really is related to being a woman. Also often times X is not a binary experience, it can fall on a spectrum of severity so while X may happen to both men and women, it maybe experienced differently in some way by women that only someone who has had both experiences can truly understand.

    Finally it's easier to believe what someone is telling you when they know where you are coming from. For example, If I knew someone who said kidney stones were the worst pain ever, I would wonder if they experienced birth for example, but if they experienced both and maintained their positions then I would be more inclined to actually believe that kidney stones hurt more. In the first case I could trust them but if they haven't experienced what I have, how could they really know it's the worst or even that big of a deal. In most cases men and women are living off their own lived experiences and don't understand what it's like for the other. It could require blind trust but I can see how even though it's a good effort to trust what someone is saying, it's better to know that it's true. Somehow you might see why a trans perspective offers insight that no other person can provide?

    [–] College student on campus Jon Meis stops active shooter with pepper spray and tackles him to the ground (1:25) - can’t believe this wasn’t mainstream. acesea 2 points ago in videos

    Active means it has not been stopped. You can use it to say right now there is a shooter and they haven't been stopped. In the past tense you can say at this point the shooter had not been stopped.

    In the aftermath of the event the shooter is no longer actively shooting people and can just be referred to as the shooter.

    [–] Difference between Nazis and Antifa. Pretty Simple... acesea 3 points ago in socialism

    At the top of the thread someone asks something to the effect of, who decides who is a Nazi, and the reply goes, "Self-proclaimed nazis do a pretty good job of identifying themselves. You know, with swastikas and white supremacy and advocation of genocide and the like."

    You comment really justifies the asking of the original question of who is considered a Nazi because anyone can just blur the lines until it gets to a point where "anyone who opposes my political or physical efforts to eliminate Nazis are Nazis."

    [–] True love acesea 6 points ago in ANormalDayInRussia

    Yea it sounds like you are suggesting women are gluttonous sloths by 30.

    American children and toddlers are also lazier and hungrier than they have every been in the history of humanity, those two year olds just keep making excuses.

    And whose to say pregnancy doesn't play a role in women gaining weight long term?

    The conclusions you would have to come to in order to say that the human will has changed instead of our environment is mind boggling.

    [–] True love acesea 4 points ago in ANormalDayInRussia

    Are you suggesting that hormones don't have a role to play in hunger/satiety, and nutrient partitioning? Are you suggesting that when a boy goes through puberty he is getting taller and stronger by just cico? Are you suggesting that human biology is no more complex than a balloon you fill with water and later empty?

    [–] Illinois State Senate passes measure designating neo-Nazi groups as terrorists acesea 3 points ago in news

    Violent fascists are handled differently than fascists, simple as that. If someone is non violent, no violence should be brought upon them

    [–] Illinois State Senate passes measure designating neo-Nazi groups as terrorists acesea 5 points ago in news

    You suggested opposing fascism with violence is justified (even against civilians), so yes, you did suggest this

    [–] What instantly says, "I'm trashy"? acesea -20 points ago in AskReddit

    I don't recall any anti Islamic terrorism comments hitting the top of unrelated ask Reddit threads after any of the numerous domestic and international terrorist attacks that occurred in Europe in the past two years.

    There really is no denying how much Reddit is pouncing on this event like it's some kind of opportunity to justify their political leanings. It's just so dumb.

    [–] What instantly says, "I'm trashy"? acesea -24 points ago in AskReddit

    This might be the last straw for me browsing Reddit, it's really impossible to escape politics on this site.
