Chemda there is a reason many people are concerned about domestic lone wolf attacks from Islamic extremists more than other religions. If you're going to reference the numbers please frame them on a 'per religious population' basis rather than 'total in the US'.

The example of Mohammed in the Quran makes it harder for moderate muslims to disown/denigrate muslim extremists or say they are 'acting not in accordance with Mohammed's teachings' (he was a warlord that spread his faith with the sword). Whereas at least in Christianity, the example of Jesus is basically as a hippy who got crucified, so the actions of christian mass shooters can be condemned as being un-christian.

Chemda you are not a bad feminist or something.
You are just too nice to creeps. They have a timeout for now. They all want to learn stuff. Well, they should sit somewhere and learn. Just go away for some time. That's the punishment. No attention or jobs for now. And then, someday we will decide if they learned enough or not. If we believe them. Its on them to prove to society that they changed. It's time to think about their victims and other women potentially in danger.

Private Zones

Interesting listening to this episode as today I have taught a class of 5 & 6 year olds - in Australia - about privacy and private zones.

This lesson was about how we have green zones on our body, which are our hands. It is ok to shake hands or High 5 or fist bump. But we have red zones, our private areas. These are explained to the children as those areas we cover when we go to the beach or the pool. These areas are not to be shown to other people and no-one is allowed to touch these areas.

These children understand this concept. Those who break the rules do so deliberately.

this is a lot of bullshit. people are more concerned about islamic extremists b/c they're fucking dumb and racist. no, let's not reframe it to make islamic attacks sound like they're on par with our white conservative extremism problem stateside.

have you ever been to church or read the bible? there's nothing hippy dippy about the fire and brimstone crowd. these assholes are afraid of brown people.


also, as per the poll question, i was sexually harassed recently at a job! officiating a wedding! right before the ceremony! by the venue owner, a rich white Christian man! God won't help us, ladies, from his followers.

Look I agree that those people are indeed all dumb and racist and a lot of their problematic beliefs come from the old testament. I probably shouldn't have made the comment about the context of US stats when I'm talking broadly for the west.

There is a serious totalitarian nature in the way the Quran is written, 'mohammed is the last prophet etc.' and I understand your experience where christian fundamentalists is vaster than mine so maybe I don't quite see quite as far down the rabbit hole as you.
My opinion is based off testimony I've read and heard from people like the Ex-Muslims of North America https://www.exmna.org/ and other widely documented problems like
the honour killing of women and the consequences of the implementation of Sharia Law.
The %s of Muslims in western countries that are for Sharia Law, women obeying the husbands and that think homosexuality should be flat out illegal are higher than the %s I've seen for self purported Christians in the west.

The point about the Quran I was trying to make is that as far as practical strategies go for the progress towards a secular Islam, many people have pointed out that a major obstacle is the semantics by which it makes it difficult for moderate muslims to condemn extremist muslims.

And it is something new this year with all those sex offenders exposed.
1. Consequences.

They really loose jobs. They loose money. Even if they can't believe it. Weinstein wanted to go away for a few weeks and come back. He didn't expect to be done.


2. Surprisingly many men are also against sexual assault!


I'm glad to notice that many men recognized women are people too. Not all of them. But more than before.


3. With social media it's way easier to talk about these problems and to notice that it's a systemic issue.

I was only sexually assaulted very mildly on the job and not very often. Yey!
Some inappropriate sex talk by customers and some touching at a work party with lots of drinking. But I said " no" and he went away.

I was more assaulted in my private life.
But lucking no rape.

Ice cream machine

The ice cream machine is often "broken" near closing time or when it needs to be refiled. Cleaning it takes about half an hour so, no one wants to start that after closing and the thing is a pain in the ass to refill and stuff during hours. No one wants to be put on that machine. So, naturally it's often "broken". Wendy's just up and admits they shut it down and cleaned it and wont serve Frosty's close to closing. Wendy's also cooks the hamburgers ahead of time and keeps them inside a stainless steel bin on the grill. SO FRESH!

I thought when many of these locations switched to 24 hours the machines would be running more often but it seems that hasn't changed much.

Looks like in late 2001, everyone got together and decided to be much more dumb and racist together.

That dies down for a while, then shortly after the Boston Marthon of 2013, people realise how much fun being dumb and racist was and go back to it.



It certainly is the case that "all terrorism other than Islamist" kills around twice as many people as Islamist terror in the U.S. but that's damning with faint praise.

<1% of the population accounting for ~35% of the terror casualties is very, very bad.



This isn't intended to support a particular thesis. I'm just so tired of people using empty identity politics rhetoric to shut down conversation.

The above figures exclude 9/11, obviously or Islamic terror would simply dwarf non-Islamic terror.
The fact that there is a group which calls itself a state, occupies territory, and has supported massacres like the Bataclan also helps. That the only groups likely to deploy WMD on U.S. soil almost all happen to be Islamic may be another factor.
