I just went on /hi/ and it's full of threads that should be in /civ/ or /phi/ instead. If this is an attempt at creating "unique institutions" for the sake of it as per >>2 then it's a classic case of delusional escalation of commitment, aka "I don't need to do anything about it because the community will figure it out themselves like they have in the past amirite guise?"

You: Pick up some retarded, bullshit Trumpian policy that can only destabilize the world, undermine western society, and eventually leave the planet in ruin.

Someone with a higher IQ: Confronts your idiocy with reality.

You: Demand sources to prove that reality is real.

Fool who thinks this argument could go somewhere: Provides sources that prove reality is real.

You: Doubt those sources, demands sources that you trust--which have only ever regurgitated the idiocy you wholeheartedly believe in.

Fool who still thinks there's a possiblity you could be convinced otherwise: Gives an anecdotal example from real-life, personal experience proving that reality is real and you are stupid.

You: Dismiss anecdotal evidence as irrelevant, purport that no one has attempted to oppose your point of view; disregard sources you disbelieve and anecdotes you also disbelieve as having ever been part of the argument.

Fool who would beat you to death with a hammer if he could find you: Tells you to kill yourself for the sake of humanity.

Look, your entire point of view holds no water. Nothing you have to say makes any sense. Several people have tried to break it down for you, but as usual idiocy triumphs over reason.

I recognize the superiority of your stupidity, after all your people elected Duck and they'll do it again in 2020. So what if he tanks the economy and leaves office with the greatest deficit, the most active conflicts, and the highest rate of hate crime in history--you like how he sticks it to the libs and there are more of you than there are people who give a shit if the planet earth still hosts human life twenty years from now.

I guess you win, and the human race loses; good game.

Do you have a single shred of evidence to back any of those statements up or is it entirely speculation and hearsay?

You do not speak for the human race, so stop acting like you do. We're articulate enough to speak for ourselves without you.

Look at you, back to square one again.

You do not have the intellectual capacity to lose an argument.

The only way to win this game is not to play; I'm thoroughly convinced there is nothing that can be done about you. Idiocracy is happening; we all know where the world goes from this point on.

This joke is funny because she is white racially and culturally and that she was obviously therefor not born in Kenya. The part that's a jab at Duck for perpetuating the "birther" conspiracy isn't what people will be laughing about when they hear this.

Hillary makes this racially charged joke on mainstream TV and no one calls out her shit?

You're going to have to be a little more specific, unless you mean Shillary is a nine year old, or that her joke was written by one. It might have been written by one, it was a shitty joke; but Hill-dawg is geriatric, yo.

You wake up with a rocket launcher hanging in your wall, next to your gigantic weed farm for your company called KushFarmsInc which has made u a shit ton of money that u can keep to yourself since u won't need to pay taxes. Then you log into the internet to your online gun shop and see that you've made over 200 bitcoins over night, then you trade your bitcoins for a shit ton of Hentai and get high. What about that sounds bad?

Without a state support your claim to private property, everything you think you own is only yours as long as no one steals it from you or kills you to take it. Even if only a few couldn't resist the urge to rape and pillage, society would quickly collapse into dystopian authoritarianism.

Without a state to decide what degree of human rights to give to who, and to maintain national borders, mass migration would destroy all of civilization. People would move like swarms of locusts from one resource to the next until there was nothing of value left on or under the surface of the Earth.

Without a state to organize under a lesser amount of tyranny, a new state of greater tyranny will form. Humanity cannot sustain any form of anarchy; we inherently organize. If we don't have a strong military and functional government to protect us, we will have something worse.

Just stop with this shit. Forget about it. Find a political ideology that makes some sense.

You now realize that the reason Arpaio got in trouble wasn't because he was detaining non-citizens, it was because he was illegally detaining citizens.

The problem with racial profiling is it's not correct all the time, yet legally it has to be. Once they find out you're a citizen they have to let you go, yet he didn't. And when the court ordering him to stop, he didn't. Not because of the non-citizens. But because of the citizens.

The same shit is going on with voter registration purges in GOP states. They're purging citizens from the rolls simply because they won't vote for GOP candidates.

The GOP can't keep this going forever. Fewer and fewer people are voting for GOP candidates every election. Eventually there will reach a tipping point where the GOP will either no longer be in power or they'll have stripped voting rights from the overwhelming majority of citizens. Remember the old rallying cry of "no taxation without representation?"

That image macro; it's perfect. F'kken sav'd.

Sadly, I don't think the Republicans mass-disenfranchisement will culminate in revolution. We're too fat and our attention spans are too short these days. If we're very lucky, it will lead to reform of federal voting systems--but only if a party that stands to benefit from election reform takes power.

The Democratic party is not that party; running Hillary (and rigging their own primary for her) in 2016 proved they are also betting on a small minority of available voters--party loyalists with no concern for an individual candidate's moral or professional failings--to lead the vote. They tell people to register, and to vote, but they never mention voting for anyone other than the two major parties. I would be more forgiving if they only ever told people to vote for their own candidates, but they are just as guilty of propagandizing the "binary choice" false dichotomy. You hear it every time they talk about "swaying independent voters"; they take absolutely for granted that these voters will vote for a major party. That is not independence, that is captivity.

I don't know if you'll ever read this, but I asked myself this question about other people many times in the past. I think in words, and sometimes in images, but most of the time I just think about doing something and then I just do it. There isn't an image or a word associated with my thought.

Technically speaking, giving the choice of two genders based on either observable genitalia or genetic testing is insufficient: there are a range of hermaphrodites, and a number of chromosomal variations that should be accounted for.

That said, I support the administration's position that sex is not to be defined by how one feels, but by clinical fact.

Being transgender is a matter of identity, which the freedom of each individual to define when and how they see fit shall not be curtailed by requiring a medically sound description of their genetics and physiology for official uses.

You can still be whomever you want to be with a birth certificate that accurately describes the body you were born with.

>They did not prevent you from having the sex you want with women.
Maybe it is so because I had escaped
>Your parents should have been there to protect you and you had to learn to stick up for yourself.
My parents can't be around all the time as well as police (which does not serve and protect us well here in Ukraine)
>Of course, knowing the part of the world you come from, I'm surprised you weren't sold to a "child modeling" agency at age four.
There was no such organised agencies when I was 13 so lucky me.

>I think you need to deal with your insecurity regarding trans people.
There is no some major insecurity. It is just minor disgust like something I fell for mentally broken people with Down syndrome for example.

>If your argument was that gender dysphoria were a mental illness I could understand it
Gender dysphoria is not normal. It is in fact a desease. And I think it is somehow more complex than pure _mental_ disorder. It is more like schisophrenia which still does not understood by science and more likely to be some hereditary disease.

>but you aren't separating genetic variations from people who just feel like a different gender than they were born.

You have a point. Had you been captured and raped repeatedly for long enough to come to like it, you'd probably be faggot now.

You're pretty defensive for a person with no major insecurity.

>Gender dysphoria is not normal. It is in fact a desease. And I think it is somehow more complex than pure _mental_ disorder. It is more like schisophrenia which still does not understood by science and more likely to be some hereditary disease.
That's like, your opinion man.

>Not all mental disorders are purely mental. Some of them is more like brocen genes we still cannot fix.
True. Perhaps one day we will find a genetic source for some cases of gender dysphoria; I don't think we can account for all cases this way however. I'm also not saying we should cater to people who make up whatever "gender" they want to be. My point is that we are already aware of some variations in our genome, and whether or not they are diseases we should probably write down the whole truth on people's birth certificates so they can make and informed decision on how to live when they come of age.

I'm pretty sure there were organized groups of the kind he was referencing when you were 13.

He's talking about being sold into child sexual slavery.
