No pro team wants the type of ‘controversy’ having a gay player is gonna cause. If he had just been convicted of DUI vehicular manslaughter, or obstruction of justice in connection with a murder, or have been accused of sexual assault, or screamed the N-word at a concert, or killed a bunch of dogs and buried them in his fucking yard — you know, ‘NFL material.’

JON STEWART, responding to reports that college football player Michael Sam has been deemed undraftable by some NFL teams because of the “controversy” surrounding his announcement that he’s gay, on The Daily Show.

Yep.

This was defining the fetus as a non-person, not redefining what a person is. The fetus wasn’t designated a person before Roe v. Wade. Also, it said that abortion would be legal through the first trimester. It did not say that it would necessarily be legal for all nine months of pregnancy.

People will need to work fewer hours to afford what they need, opening up jobs for more people. It is not cutting jobs, it is cutting the need for people to work hella long hours.

My, oh, my, how times have changed. America now has a government that views work as a trap and celebrates those who escape it.

Obama Democrats’ troubling view on work | New York Post (via stuff-that-irks-me)

There is a different between the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs, and having 2.5 million people lose their jobs. People will work fewer hours, allowing them to, you know, be able to have a life outside of work. I don’t see how this is a bad thing. If companies want to fill those time slots, they can hire more people, and this reduces unemployment. Please, explain why any of this is bad.

I am sure it would. People would definitely get offended, but I doubt that many people would say one has no right to do it. People shouldn’t, just like people shouldn’t burn an American flag (except in the retiring ceremony, when it is standard to burn the flag), but there should not be laws against it.

While this person is an awful human being, it does nothing to refute gun control…Nice try though!

This isn’t about gun control itself, it’s about the fact that gun control is usually instated by those claiming to abhor violence. 

"usually". That is the key word. Most of us definitely abhor violence, but there are the bad apples in any group. It still does nothing to refute gun control.

literally, feminism is just so trivial. you people have nothing better to do than find a way to victimize yourselves and get away with sexism.

How do feminists get away with sexism? How are men oppressed by women due to feminism? How are women privileged over men in our society? Why DON’T we need feminism? Y’all complain about it, but you have never actually really explained why you think it is unneeded.
