I agree that my wording was poor on the trans post at times, but that's my whole point about amongstclouds throwing a fit without ever asking for clarification. I feel that I should have enough good will here at this point to get the benefit of the doubt, without someone immediately assuming the worst and throwing a dozen aggro posts at me.

I'm not going to defend an 8 month old post where I said I read there's evidence that CP reduces actual child abuse. Maybe the studies I heard of are bullshit, idk, but I was team anti-child abuse there either way.

"Stupid" means lacking intelligence. An idea can be unintelligent, it's not ableist to say that. That use has nothing to do with intellectual disability.

But I'm not arguing it any further. If this is really how you want anarchist spaces to be run, anarchy cops scouring the post history of longtime users to find no no words to get upset about, words that no one outside of your 6 internet friends find offensive, fucking have at it bud.

I'm not interested in mediation unless they change their behavior. I'll just continue ignoring them like I usually do.

I don't understand how other people on here consider their toxic behavior in any way acceptable.

You did this way before any of that came up. You even said in matrix that you wanted to apologize but I had blocked you. So I guess you hadn't decided I was an unredeemable shit person yet, but you were still aggro af?

You're like the only person on here that I've had problems with, and you're blowing up the recent comments with your spam every other week. So just maybe it's not me.

Ziq referred to aragorn in his comment here, so I said "the aragorn thing." What the fuck is with you and instantly throwing a fit about everything? You're fucking unbearable.

But whatever keep deluding yourself that it's your gender people are bothered by, and not that you're a huge asshole.

If suggesting that maybe its not terrible that there's an NBA and a WNBA is so horribly transphobic and beyond the pale, then by all means ban me. If that's an opinion you think people shouldn't be allowed to say in public, then I don't know what to tell you here.

As for the aragorn thing, there's literally no evidence of the transphobia other than amongstcloud's word.

I don't believe the word stupid is inherently ableist. If occasionally using the word invalidates all my contribution to the site for you, then please ban me, I'd rather not be here.

Not even sure what part I'm being downvoted for. Cause women can be dumb and schlubby too? Or that people think I'm being sarcastic about it being hot?

Whatever, I think my joke answer was still less sexist than your more serious answer.

The same reason as before the story started? No one believed in white walkers until Jon went up there but they were still watching it anyway. Tradition, a place to exile people, keep wildlings and giants or whatever else out, guard the border of the 7 kingdoms.

But ziq might be right, it wasn't clear.

It's not speciesist because I don't accept the moral premises veganism is based on for humans either. I'm not a utilitarian.

It's a small enough problem that you probably shouldn't be trying to force your western value system on indigenous people over it. The theory behind veganism relies on a completely different worldview (European philosophy), one only accepted by indigenous people after colonization & genocide. White people scolding them for not meeting the values they forced on them is not a good look.

I think that hunting is fine & settlers should fuck off when it comes to indigenous people and their relationship to non-human animals. Deal with the factory farms white people created before harassing indigenous people about some hunting.

But I don't think I agree with western veganism in general.
