Isn't it rather difficult to emigrate to Canada? Even if you are white?

I don't understand the logic, really.
Canada grants her access to the country, allows her to study at one of their educational institutions.
There are many nations in the world where even that is extremely difficult.

It just seems like bad form to me. Pick a country that you want to move to, apply to move there. Them government of said country invites you in, Immediately you start whining that their country fucking sucks.

Like, are you fucking dense or what? You are the one who chose to move there!

Even if you take it from the perspective of Canada's history. Yes, it definitely was a colony and, worse than that, they did not exactly treat the indigenous population well.

However, how is she not now doing the exact same thing or at least contributing to the problem?
Surely the correct solution is for everyone in Canada to go back to where they came from? Not "lets just add more and more colonizers".

By her own definition she has to be part of the colonial project?
Arabs and Middle Easterners are not even historically oppressed to any significant extent (aside from "muh Crusades", but those were just a response to attacks on Europe). The Irish and Scottish were much more oppressed than them.

Arabas indeed waged wars left and right, thank you, prophet and thank you, microbes who killed him, that it stalled after his death.
But no, muh Crusades wasn't "a response" to anything.

Regardless, what does something that happened somewhere to sp,e people the past, have to do with someone living here and today?
So what if they looked similar?

your mind
@somerset dribbles adderal into his mouth by the beadfuls and goes on wild tangents about god knows what
some kinda underground, long-lasted democratic socialist cult ring heralded by tony blair and george bush

Those incessantly long mostly incoherent posts that you have been skipping over usually contain the words Fabian and dribbling.
Gillard, Shorten and Plibersek are Fabians. That’s all you need to know.
I’m still none the wiser, but I’m guessing @Teletraan1 ’s post holds the most truth.

I thought it was some new-fangled internet trendy talk, but Google and Duckduckgo disagree, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

How the hell can you conduct over 100 bodily modifications and end up looking like a frumpy middle-aged librarian?

Welcome to the trans-humanist cyberpunk future where body modification is all the rage and anything is possible...
...but everyone just modifies themselves to look like they are off to the local church bingo night.

It is important that a subset of the population rejects the dominant narrative. The revolutionary types, pointing out the issues in current society, the rumblings of social change... all of this is normal and helps any system correct itself. I grant that, and i even identify with it to a great degree. Like, i 'get' face tats and such when done as a rejection of society. I've known people who reject greater concepts like taxation supporting war, etc., and have intentionally removed themselves from taking part in mainstream society because they reject it through and through.

The problem is, this fringe activity has been coopted and weaponized, and is now a large, dominant force in and of itself, and pointed in the wrong direction. And so instead of rejecting true authoritarianism, they embrace it, and instead rebel against stuff like the 'patriarchy'. And so instead of 'freedom fighters' in the truest sense of those words, you've got people denouncing and despising their own maleness, because they've been convinced maleness is the problem. Instead of people rejecting, say, war, they're rejecting their own identity.

It's absolutely bizarre to watch. The most 'privileged' [using their terms] among them have turned themselves into self-hating idiots, that reject their own identity in trying to claim a piece of power in their new, imaginary, world order. The anti-war gutter punk types were not trying to grab or claim power. They were rejecting it, pushing it away. They wanted nothing to do with it. These people, however, are power hungry.

Demons described these folks perfectly. Social outcasts. A chip on their shoulder. Passionate about their beliefs. Pulling well-meaning folks to themselves in order to obtain more power.

When the ideal of "we need to stand up for what is right" inevitably transforms into the next stage, which is "here is the evil we need to tear down", watch closely, because the demons are quick to grasp that power for themselves. The shift is almost imperceptible.

99 of them were probably follow-up surgeries for the dilation complications.

Yorktown High School, a public school in Arlington, Virginia, handed out a physics assignment instructing students to pick a famous scientist, engineer, or inventor to focus on for a biographical project. But the assignment came with a catch: Students are not allowed to choose a “white, non-Hispanic male.”

By the way, the person who wrote that article is a professor at a university.

So he's getting paid a lot regardless.

Such a lot of diversity in their staff.
Diversity, equality, inclusiveness - that's ultra-important, top-priority stuff. I keep being told this.
Right.. ?

And, going by their list of tags, "race" equates to just two races:


Racism, uh, finds a way.

Oh good ol’ crossing eden. Lol
I have an account there. I don't use it after seeing the place for what it was. So am not familiar with the regular names there.

I got a temp ban around the BFV announce-trailer outrage when I made what I felt was a soft-ish joke.

I asked that, if I had never shown interest in any past Battlefield games, and continued that tradition with this latest one - does it mean I'm now sexist?

Tough crowd. 😢

I just see a dude who hates himself and has to bring the rest of us down with him because he’s a narcissist.
He failed at being a male.
He failed at living as an American.
He is now working on his third life as @Saruhashi put it, a female librarian in Japan.

His attempt to carpet bomb western gaming with stupidity will be less effective than Japan's ballon attacks on the US.

And he'll blame us and try to vacuum up as many victim points as he can.

I dont hate the guy. As @matt404au points out, he already hates himself. He's the one putting his ideas out there, and stupid should not be a protected class.
