"Hi. I'm sexist. I specialize in sex."

"I'm a philanderer. I love other ppl."

Don't even. If you haven't lived there, you have no idea how much hatred there can be between Japanese and Koreans, or Koreans and Chinese, or Chinese and Japanese. It is its own tangled web of bigotry with centuries of practice behind it.

PS: Everyone loves the Taiwanese. It's the only universal truth.



@tehwatever
I DO specialize in sex, thank you very much. Now, let me show you the house speciality!

I was just thinking how bizarrely difficult it can be for ESL students dealing with some words.

Also I had in my mind the made-up word Analrapist aka Analyst-Therapist.

It's ENGLISH Jim, but not English as we know it.



@Background Human
I am Chinese (a bit) but I was working in Japan, and nearly everyone thought I was Canadian, so this is the point where it all gets terribly confusing and to be honest I just followed the crowd, kept my head down, and apologized for breathing.

Cancel culture, up until recently has been entirely a tool of the right.

Want to unionize? Fired and possibly blacklisted from the industry.

Think that maybe gays and blacks should be treated like human beings? Good luck ever getting a job again.

Don't forget all the people that have been fired for being LGBTQ+, refusing to work unpaid overtime, bringing up hazards at the workplace or calling out injustice at work.

And now that it's happening to them, conservatives, true to form, whine and cry and act like it's only happening to them, and how dare you do to them what they so gleefully do to other people.

Heavy topic but you seem like the kind of fella who is down for tackling taboo topics:

What’s the reason that the Eastern and Western worlds have different stances on Sex in general?

In Canada there’s a shitload of buzz about an proposed Anti-Porn Bill that some Officials are welcoming.

Did the GOP take over Canada or something?

As an observation, notice in America and Europe how it is always white people being blasted for how awful they are, when racism is so ingrained elsewhere in the world and far more openly accepted. The conveniently half blind progressive narrative in action.

What gives you the idea that I’m some sort of Kaczynski-esq libertarian (or worse, one of the fash-adjacent HBD fuckwits who masquerade as libertarians)? I’m a big advocate of public housing, and see it as a way to solve or at least alleviate a lot of problems in society.


I'm not entirely clear as to what your politics are (which isn't a bad thing; I'm not sure of what my own politics are, either). You do seem to have a very distinctively libertarian bent, but by that I don't mean I think you're an anarcho-primitivist or a neoreactionary; more someone with a consistent "attack the system" ideology.

I guess what it comes down to is this; can you really not see why someone might consider Trump to be qualitatively worse than other presidents like George W. Bush, even if you don't agree with that assessment? Liberals don't find Trump to be abhorrent because of his "style" alone. They find him abhorrent because of what his style indicates he would do if he actually had the unchecked power he instinctively desires. I don't think it's inaccurate to say he's pathologically narcissistic in a way his predecessors simply were not.

It's a mistake to underestimate the sheer terror Trump and his enablers inspired in those who are committed to a liberal, democratic society. In my experience, the people who don't find Trump uniquely disturbing (like you) are those who don't have a strong investment in the American political structure. Am I wrong about that?

Short answer: Culture religion and economy?
Same reason why west and east see funerals and death differently? Idk. Talk to a anthropomorphologist for this issue.

@silbasa
…lemme break it down for you.

in America and Europe, White holds power. In other parts of the world, they don't.
in America and Europe, You have FREEDOM OF SPEECH. In other parts? They don't.

In case you havent noticed, ppl in the respective countries have been wanting to speak out against Han chinese in china or the jews in Israel.

But systemic racism over there is also enforced or allowed by their respective government, in the name of whatever, progress, development, honor, safety, order etc. Dissenting voice against racism is extinguished by violence and shame.

If your argument is: "O, people of color and immigrants in America and Europe, listen! Other minorities in other parts of the world are okay with their majority mistreating their minority, so why dont you tolerate our treatment of you?"

Then I want you to think about what you're really saying.
