Bullshit.

You've been outed as a nihilist.

Suck it up, Phos.
So I suppose you would like me behave like a gay, conservative nihilist now because you can't fathom it. I'll try, but I don't think I can pull it off.

I've been on this forum a long time.

I'm pretty sure you could pretend to be anything you like.

It's easy to change masks when there's nothing underneath to cover up.

Except for earlier in this very thread, where you suggested it might be doing everyone a favour if [GROUP] gays [/GROUP] were barred from certain premises.

Well we have to admit that people are somewhat dumb and can only imagine the world according to categories they've been indoctrinated into. That was not a dig on gay people at all. That was simply to say its sometimes best to mitigate problems instead of exacerbating them. Sometimes its best to separate people to keep them from hurting each other. Soccer hooligans for example. But I know you had to play up your outrage.

Except you, right?

You were looking for some kind of affirmation from the get go. Enjoy.

So, you're not into separating people into groups.

Except when people are too stupid and indoctrinated, then you have to separate them groups.

And treat them differently.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we spout $hit3 we don't believe.

I'm not into that at all. People do that on their own. Yet some insist on doing that for them.

Look, all I'm saying is be wise, and don't judge people by how they are grouped. Individuals are not the group they are grouped in.

Why don't you stop talking about how the topic is being talked about and start talking about the topic?

Isn't that a study all about grouping people in order to determine why problems occur?

Doesn't sound like your sort of thing at all.

I'm not talking about turning off a part of your brain, I'm talking about turning on another part of your brain.

Take Milo for instance. I don't share his sexual preference for black men, nor do I even agree with what he says about Muslims in Europe. But what he says about the state of culture and the left is spot on. I don't need to write him off as an irredeemable individual because someone considers him a twat? How different is that from someone writing him off because he's gay?

Can you up your game, or have you had enough of this? The silly attempts at disparagement is somewhat boring and way too predictable.

Nobody takes you seriously because you don't answer questions and don't proffer a personal opinion. You jump on board all the "Hot Topic" threads, add absolutely bugger all to the discussion of the topic and then just spout off about how people discuss it.

I can't help having the feeling you're a politician.

Can you SOMEWHAT attempt to stay on topic. Nobody on here has suggested because Milo is within <group x> all his opinions are invalid.

My personal reasoning for his opinions (that I have heard) being invalid are that I have heard them. I'm sure he has SOME valid opinions, most people do, even certain trolls on this thread.

Well it does not need anybody to separate people into groups. People form the groups themselves-identify with certain values,ways of behavior, clothing,etc etc.And labelling someone as this or that is basically to give that sense of security. Now we have him labelled,put in a box. We are safe now

I'm not sure this makes any sense whatsoever. The only thing linking the male gay community is the fact that they are men who fancy men. The community is full of individuals who share this one trait.

That you would extrapolate this to suggest they share other values or behaviours is clearly labelling on your behalf. Sure, many of them may not like football, or may like to frequent certain clubs, but that goes for the human population as a whole, or any other "self-identifying" groups you may wish to pigeonhole.

EF is full of people who speak English and live in Switzerland - they all think alike.

You see, I understood what he said, and it seems like he understood me. How do you explain that? Are we in a separate alternate universe, or a separate basket of deplorables and irredeemables? But that may just be the majority of humanity. Oh boy, how do we deal with the world? Group huge and cry?
