  1. I'm planning on getting my dual citizenship through Italy within the next year or so. I've been too lazy to go through the red tape because I have a lot of personal things going on right now, but will definitely do it. I try to be understanding about both sides regarding UK leaving, and other Euro countries potentially staying or leaving. I'm really sick of polarizing and bitter politics, but I'm still watching what will happen regarding any domino effect on other countries. I have been hearing a lot of anger from my sister and brother in law in the UK about the outcome of the vote yesterday. My sister considers me more right wing because she's very left in her politics.

  2. Florida should be a country of its own :dead:

    Sometimes wonder how international people here must think about the never-ending stories coming from Florida. :lol:

    Lived there for a short time and spent time in different cities. There's definitely a crazy mix of interesting people depending where you're in the state. There are some things I love about it, including many white beaches and relatively cheap living. Just have to avoid some of the militant cops who watch drivers on roads like hawks. Some come off like Hitler's gestapo.

  3. Floriduh again? hehe Nah..this sounds like mindset of a lot of dopey millennials in Ameriduh right now :/ Some scary, stoopid shit/characters. I see some dogs in my neighborhood who seem more focused and sharp than those people in this video. Love or hate him *this is exactly what Trump is tapping into...hard. LOTS of people are fed up w/ the comical, extreme absurdity of the PC machine.

    Think the spreading social justice warrior ideology people have strong concerns about is even worse in UK campuses. Seems very trivial with some of the policing of language and online media that takes place in UK. It's also reportedly pretty off the charts in Canada, but it's always been a much more liberal country compared to US. .

    Also, most everyday folk would not know what micro aggressions and cultural appropriation are, but think it's a strong trend for now which needs to be reported on. Even NY Times and CNN are reporting on these issues all the time.

  4. Hardcore SJW ideology seems like a phase right now because of how the world is changing so fast. It's definitely gaining traction and you see it permeating the culture in a big way, but maybe (hopefully) it will run its course in a few years.

    Even if some are well intentioned, some continue to think you can only create changes by yelling people down or making them feel guilty. I have a couple of family members like that and they're really difficult to engage in sensitive political topics.

    SJW aren't always going to get their way in the real world, where people mostly care about their daily survival and there's no time to wallow in being offended or micro-aggressions.

  5. Think that retarded clicking of fingers instead of clapping made headlines because it was used by National British Union of Students.

    I recently read that same union in UK made a motion last week to abolish any representation for "gay cisgender males", particularly whites, because they're no longer consider oppressed. :lol::lol:

    They totally ignored statistics that show gay guys have the largest rate of HIV, along with experiencing a high rate of violence perpetrated against them.

    All this intra-fighting in leftist circles is not helpful, and partly contributing to right wing rhetoric surging popularity. Like others have already said here, we now have the other extreme like Trump, Le Pen, German far right, etc....

  6. Agree that Madonna would have been attacked left and right if the internet and out of control identity politics were as popular as now.

    Globalization and advanced technology has made the world much smaller and intimate. It's to be expected that people are going to be inspired and even rip off other cultures. You can be pissed off about it and start conversations, but assaulting and bullying people is immature and nonproductive!

  7. We know cultural appropriation from people of color and even lgbt communities is an issue. Of course depending where you live, racism, xenophobia, homophobia is REAL shit.

    It just feels that SJW schtick is like a secular religion and many of the tactics employed by them wind up alienating people who would be their allies in the fight.

    I actually applied for that university and took a tour of that school back in the day. Did not wind up going, but not surprised this incident happened there tbh.
