Why do all the thread in the pit turn into arguments between two sides about nothing?

No, they are defending rape. A rape apologist gives excuses for and condones rape. Apologetics usually is a term associated with different religions (e.g. C.S. Lewis is a famous Christian apologist) but it can be applied to other things, too. The term does not mean you are saying sorry or you are sorry about something (like rape) but it means you are making an argument for the defense of it.


There is so much wrong with this post it's not even funny. You should read a book on this shit.

I'm actually not. But you seem to be saying I'm usually wrong, when you're the guy who sat there and told us all that Mao and Stalin were great. It's like the pot calling the kettle black.

well actually i've never said either of them were great but okay

Actually, what you said was that Mao modernized China (when it was actually Deng who did that [by bringing in capitalism]). It's not too far of a stretch that you really like Mao, if you think he modernized China.

I'm assuming you think Stalin is great though, because he's your avatar. It's not too far of a stretch to assume you really like Stalin, if you're using him as your avatar.

okay that's a fair enough assumption, & Mao did definitely make a good bit progress in China

i prefer Stalin as a theorist than a leader tbh, altho he did do more to realise socialism than any other person has

You're ignorant.

A rape apologist is someone who's committed rape and feels apologetic about it. That's why being a rape apologist is a good thing, if you didn't feel sorry about it you'd be a terrible person.

'Arguing' is a good way to expand your own knowledge, providing you can accept when you're wrong. Usually both people will bash their side and all the cracks in the concepts erode away so both benefit.

"Arguing" in its literal sense is good, yes. But what often occurs here, I find, is the de facto definition of debating. Even once someone knows they're wrong, they tighten their buckles and trudge on anyway.

I can't argue over the internet I get overexcited and abuse caps lock and crack out melodramatic strings of text
but it's fun


when I argue irl I pose it more obviously as a proposition, NLP makes it a smoother experience.

Rubbish.
Apologetics: (noun, usually plural) a reasoned defence or vindication.
Apologist: a person who defends something by argument.
Those definitions are straight from the Oxford Dictionary.
You are confusing this with your understanding of the word apology. Your application is incorrect. The term rape apologist when used correctly means someone who argues for and defends rape.
