    Future AOTM Suggestion Thread

    :3 I has an idea. What abooouuuut surrealism? It's creative and really interesting. At least I think so. I'm going to suggest that almost all the AOTMs be in traditional media, basically because I don't have a tablet (or a mouse for that matter...). I also think that traditional media is more...

    Artist of the Month

    Ohhhh~ I am so into this. I will participate! I also second everything Shiduri said. Mixing traditional and digital just isn't fair, nor is doing a really broad type of contest where artists could submit anime and still life drawings. The two just aren't comparable. I also like that actual...

    Pussy Cat Dolls - What are they thinking?

    What were they thinking? They were thinking of making money. To be honest, I think I'm going to be the voice of dissension here. What's so terrible about sexuality? What is so dangerous about it? I don't understand why people make such a huge deal about it. America is actually REALLY uptight...

    Put 9/11 Behind Us

    No, because that's not who they blame. Just because that's who you believe is to blame, it does not mean that they share your view. It's impossible to fully understand a culture through an ethnocentric viewpoint. Many of their grievances can be traced back to-- so they believe-- imperialism and...

    Put 9/11 Behind Us

    I'm going to ahead and skip reading some posts and just respond to a few things that caught my eye :monster: Katsky: It seems you aren't too familiar with Saudi Arabia or the profile of the hijackers. It is true that Saudi Arabia is a fabulously rich country due to oil and that citizens are...

    Political Correctness, and Youth Sports

    Oh god. It's not only in sports; it seems to be everywhere. In this culture, it seems like we always need to stress that each child-- or one could even say everyone in general-- is special. Everyone has to be special and be made to feel like a winner. I find it really ridiculous. I'm sorry, but...

    Memorial for 9/11 victims?

    Well, I'm kind of biased because I'm from New York, sooo.... Yes, I definitely think there should be a monument. Well, they're planning one (some sort of building? a park? something...?) on ground zero. I really do think it's the right thing to do. Not only for those who worked in the Twin...

    Abortion - your views.

    So, uh, just out of curiosity, have you ever heard anything about the Holocaust, like, ever? Hitler didn't just try to kill the Jews or Gypsies or Blacks. He also went after the mentally ill and the handicapped. Kind of like what you're suggesting. Yeaaah. I'm sorry to break this to you, but...

    Abortion - your views.

    Okay, Katsky, I'd like to make a comment here. There is a difference between believing in the right to choose whether or not to have an abortion and advocating that those who have autism or any other disability not be allowed to reproduce. One is called pro-choice and the other is called...

    Abortion - your views.

    I'm not hating on you. Just pointing out the hideous, gaping flaws in your argument :monster: Wow, that's a pretty shitty counter-argument. Pro-choice people NEVER tried to argue that people should be able to do anything and everything to their bodies. That you even tried to insinuate that...

    There's already a thread on this:

    Abortion - your views.

    So you believe that a woman should be able to choose whether or not she has an abortion? Um, I hate to break it to you, but that's called pro-choice. Notice the word choice in the term. Yeah, I'm not sure what "pro-choice" campaigns you've seen, but I'm relatively sure that no pro-choice...

    Abortion - your views.

    Um, there's no such thing as "pro abortion." That term was just invented by right-wing conservatives who want to rally people into thinking that pro-choicers attack unsuspecting pregnant women in dark alleys with wire coat hangers and abortion directions printed from the internet. I'm pro-choice...

    Abortion - your views.

    Hey, you know what I think is irresponsible? Forcing a woman who does not want to have a child to go through a both physically and emotionally wrenching and painful ordeal that results in another human life on this insanely overpopulated and under-resourced planet we live on. You want to...

    Science: how far is too far?

    "The Higgs Boson particle is a theoretical particle that causes gravity" No. It has absolutely nothing to do with gravity. It explains how particles acquire mass. There is a key part that you're missing here. Scientists KNOW for sure what reactions will occur when you mix certain chemicals...

    Science: how far is too far?

    Actually, if I understand it correctly, it IS the first particle accelerator that hurls protons at each other. There are other particle accelerators, but they don't do the same thing, hence my saying that this is the first time it is being done. While it is unlikely that it will create a...

    Science: how far is too far?

    Eh, this is kind of a broad topic I suppose, but one thing in particular got me thinking about this. That would be the large hadron collider that is currently being developed beneath Switzerland. Read about it here: For those who are too...

    Wife WAS a porn star?!?!

    Errmmm, I personally think he deserved to know. This isn't like a "oopsie, I once stole something from a store" type of past. If she was in porn, whether she quit or not, those movies are still floating around. Don't you owe it to the person you supposedly love to come clean about something like...

    Annoying Neighbours

    -__- Guh. There is always drama going on with the neighbors because my dad is the reincarnation of Genghis Khan and has to start shit with everyone. When I brought this to his attention, he told me that he's not here to make friends. Veeeery good attitude. The latest issue is with the...
