In Malta, a kidnapper “after abducting a person, shall marry such person, he shall not be liable to prosecution.”

The predominant religion in Malta is that of the Catholic Church. The Constitution of Malta establishes Catholicism as the state religion and it is also reflected in various elements of Maltese culture.

No, I just consistently call myself a dumbass, don't try to view it as manipulative- I've known a lot of manipulative people and would hate nothing more than to be one.

This is a consistent point I've pushed on Riot, Mastodon and other channels of communication (in reference to 'I'm a dumbass'). I can imagine it coming off such a way since I don't know you and assume vice versa is true, but I'm very consistent on this.

I want no pity and do not accept pity.

A counter-argument would not suffice because I have none; I don't know enough to make one, and generally often don't know enough to make arguments period. Over Riot I stressed a wish to get passed some resources to educate myself with, generally 'im a dumbass' is me just accepting defeat before going on to ask on easier forms of communication for ways to remedy that.

In conclusion, I am a dumbass, but I am very consistent about it.

Oh, yeah, definitely. The trio just seem to me that they're often hand-in-hand with reactionary ideals, given my experiences with Christianity and what I've heard from friends from Morocco and Syria.

Aren't all of the Abrahamic religions generally pretty sexist by default? The writings are sexist and depending on the country the sexist parts are implemented to varying degrees (this includes Christian teachings, don't take this as a roundabout 'but the muslims do it worse'. Covering myself because reading over it it could be taken that way.)

Generally, the three just pull social progress back.

Yeah, I'll talk shit about any religions but will certainly avoid that.

Okay, fair.

antisemitism, Islamophobia,

this part concerns me too given I very much hate the main branches of most religions, from these to Christianity to Buddhism, etc.

I didn't see any rule about that.

Also, many of us such as I are far from traditional Marxism.

All positions of power claim it won't be used for such reasons; I continue to oppose it based on that.

Oppose. Given my ban from lobby, I'm forced to assume this will happen much too often, and be used very often to snip away what was hardly an issue. It's a nice idea, but as most powers used by admins/moderators/any authority, I doubt it will be used nicely in practice.

Yeah, true. But as someone else with autism/aspergers, I still think its distinct enough to use its own marker.

Remember, Emma quit the site but didn't remove her contributions other than her posts, which are entirely hers. Still skeptic on Nettle.
