Oh I get it, this is where we take words that already have perfectly good meanings and substitute them for phrases we're too lazy to type out.
You've missed the point. Punishment has nothing to do with it.
So now democracy is about punishment? and collapsing the government will more than likely hurt other people.
Woah there, I'm pretty sure not everyone in the armed forces does that.
On topic: As much as I agree with the protests, there was no need to smash up one of the royal family's cars. Last time I checked they don't have any power until the country becomes so ****ed up the military can be put in charge.
Or are the big corporations out to gain profits no matter what, even if it means harming others?
Ah yes, call me an idiot because I have views that oppose yours. My claims are so outrageous and based on nonsense, and I am completely talking out of my ass by claiming that women have it easier than men nowadays, which is a view that I base on things that I see day after day.
I think I have said time and time again that I am strongly for feminism in making men and women equal, what I am NOT for is feminism that strives to give women advantages, which seems to be the main purpose of most feminist groups.
You can make claims about ideals of feminism all you want, I'm basing my opinion on actual RESULTS of feminism, which is all about giving women an edge.
Why is it fair that unemployed women get extra help that men in the same situation don't get?
Why is it fair that things like this pass by unquestioned, but when a guy claims that women have it easier than men, people jump his ass and call him an idiot for forming an opinion based on observation instead of meaningless statistics?
EDIT: and before you go on a rant on how women have to deal with stuff like cat calls and such, are you REALLY so close-minded that you don't realise that guys have to deal with shit like that as well? Like guys are never approached with the classic "You got a problem, boy?" from guys who are trying to start a fight? Like guys live quiet, peaceful lives without ever being harassed or bothered?
I thought Labour was left wing?
Correct; only if you are EMPLOYED for a wage less than the minimum.
It's alright. I think working at your job is also compulsory to receive your paycheque.
So it will help those who are willing to work by improving their employability, placing above those unwilling to work who will get out of it somehow.
Too many times do I see yobs who've got 7 kids; 52" plasma HD T.V; each kid has a £700 computer; nice car on the drive etc., when my parents (and now myself now i'm adult) have to work bloody hard to get what we have. If I want a new TV, or new car, or laptop; I have to save for it and do overtime. My parents have to work bloody hard to keep just the house and whats in it and food on the table. Some people get it all provided on a plate, and we as people working and paying tax are effectively paying for all this.
There are troops now in Afganistan who havn't the proper equipment they require and are consequently putting their lives at more of a risk than they should have to; there are hospital departments closing left-right-and centre; the are thousands of police jobs being lost as no-one can afford them any more; the fire service have made firefighters redundant and are not taking on any more;
The only thing i find comical is that it's near impossible to survive on minimum wage alone.
Sure some people have managed to do it but most would be scravling for pocket change.
Yet the point of minimum wage was to provide a minimum pay someone could live of off.
That's called being really fucking sad. Sadness doesn't stop at a certain level. It can go on until you want to kill yourself. It's silly to say that once you're sad enough you suddenly have a disease, just like it's silly to say you have a disease if you're fat enough or something.
Here are some facts:
-What we term 'depression' is a very modern phenomenon. It was not observed until recent times, and did not begin to be diagnosed regularly until after the first antidepressants were introduced.
-In scientific trials that are not affiliated with drug companies, antidepressants have been shown conclusively to have little to no effect over a placebo.
well i dont see it as faking either. i do encounter it a lot though: people - often children - feel excluded from their community and want to get attention. its not like they think: "y'know what, ill just fake depression", but they feel unhappy and this escalates because they overthink it and possibly, maybe subconsciously to receive the attention they want so much.
i mean, people have a tendency to exaggarate things because it makes it more interesting. trust me, been there . when you keep telling other people - or yourself - how depressed you feel - even when you feel just feel moderately unhappy - it will become worse and worse.
well for starters i have read the post and the historical arguement was pretty convincing i must say, but when i see how many people - especially in the pit - claim they are depressed (mind me, im not saying any of you are not) it makes me wonder why. maybe the internet just calls for the more introvert, einzelganger-type kinda people. but it could also be that people in the pit are generally not socially the best people - from my personal experience, mind me im walking on thin ice here - and that they thus exaggerate their unhappiness and talk themselves into depression because it is so widely accepted as a terrible disease. they could do it for attention, hell i dont know. but it does seem plausible to me.
Well this is pretty much the answer I was expecting but think about it. since depression is a mental disease, it could easily be a placebo. like i said before, depression is different from cancer in the sense that cancer actually shows a tangible symptom - or at least, provable - whereas depression is more of a vague kinda disease.... if "depression" didnt "exist", how would people who suffer from it now act, is what im wondering. would they just suck up their unhappiness and say "its all in my head, ill ignore it"? and dont just post no youre a frikkin idiot l00lz. try to think about what im saying here, please?
They are pretty subjective IMO. Surely everyone sleeps bad every once in a while because they worry about stuff. Everyone has headaches. Not everyone loses weight but you can be depressive without right? It's just pretty subjective in the sense that it's subjective to see when something's a symptom of depression or just has a headache.
That's kind of my point with depression. If you weren't told depression existed, would people be depressive? It's literally all in your head, right?
im not sure whether as to believe that depression is actually a disease or just something like a placebo. i mean, people can easily call the depressive card even when they objectively have nothing to blame. thoughts?
In Australia we have a federal minister for the status of women , but no equivalent minister for men. How is that fair?
I just feel really empty, all the time. Life seems just so pointless. I feel my life is meaningless, no one would notice if I were to just disappear. No one would question it, no one would care. I can't be happy, its pointless trying to be.
I've lost the will to live. Fuck it all. What's the fucking point?
What scotch is affordable for a student?
guys im so ill atm ... i keep passing out , i cant keep any food down hugs please
What do you want? All films to be about Emmeline Pankhurst, Jesus, Nelson Mandela and Gandalf fighting against gender and race inequality (and the dark lord Sauron)?
Will you people please read the damn proposal rather than the article, the article is wildly inaccurate! The actual proposal only mentions the idea of centralised deductions and payments as an idea way down the line; it's about as related to this proposal as the discovery of penicillin is to a cure for cancer!
And just how many people are intersexuals? I doubt it's enough to shake the labor force to the core...
By the same logic we can conclude that the argument about minor differences in pay represented by mere statistics are void.
I'm not just saying what I am based on physical characteristics, and I've made many a reference to the emotional and mental disadavantages women have in comparison to men.
Feminism now has evolved from the perfectly sensible notion of giving women rights such as equal pay for the same job as men and allowing them to ask for maternity leave and all that jazz to the 'all men are evil rapists' bullcrap which modern feminists seem to spout.
It's all about female superiority now, not female equality.
@toastedlemming person....I am NOT a masculinist!
The problem is that many feminists, including Mistress_Ibanez, hold masculists in contempt. If anything, they're being sexist by doing so.
