    yet men can wear less and that's fine. they can be comfortable and wear next to nothing at the beach, while women have to suffer in the heat. fuck that.

    I don't agree with it but, as I said, go elsewhere.

    Go to a place where they do allow it. They'll soon change when they realise they're losing money but it will be their choice not us forcing change upon them.

    Yes I agree.. I mean it's only women that are being discriminated against based on religious views. If they wanna act like whores they can go to Brighton or Toremolinos. :electropop:

    I don't feel it's for me to judge other religions. I don't agree with it and it would be very colonial of me to go there and say they should change their ways to what I believe.

    I'll just go to Brighton.

    Borremans is an incredible painter. Art is supposed to be strange and make people think. I cant with gen z and do many people on social media looking to get offended these days. Not everything is literal. Sorry but.. since when are the youth so fucking prude?
     

    This feels like the conservative alt right jumping in with their usual “wont somebody please think of the children” anti sex and homophobic “propaganda”. Dont fall for it.

    You might think images that have direct references to child abuse are "artists disturbing the peace" but I don't. I have friends that have to deal with this kind of stuff and it's unbelievably horrible. It isn't conservatism thinking that papers which refer to actual child abuse is unacceptable 

    It's this kind of trying to act cool and not be shocked which enables serial abusers to continue in plain sight such as Uncle Terry, Harvey Weinstein etc.

    First of all, who exactly are "addicted loons", and who are you calling that? Because no one here sees this man as any sort of hero. In fact, quite the opposite. All I thought was that there's some interesting perspectives right now from experts who study authoritarianism, media, disinformation, etc. regarding who funded the deal, who he is/was in communication with for the deal, what are the long-term ramifications of all this and how does it affect future issues regarding protecting democracy/communication/elections/etc. There's a lot of things ringing the alarm to them beyond the obvious of him just being an egomaniac.

    Yes, I saw something along those lines and it does make you wonder along with Zuckerberg, they think they're bigger than government and can shape the agenda.

    They want to get anyway from 'corruption' but all they really want is to take the reigns of power.

    However, it's hilarious to see just how terrible Musk is. There will be multiple lawsuits heading his way for the way he's dismissed staff globally.

    And I didn't realise he didn't create Tesla, just ousted the former CEO.

  5. I think it's also the fact that Facebook isn't popular with the young, use among the older demographic is likely declining too. I don't use it very often and many of my friends don't use it so much now. 

    He's thrown so much money at the crappy metaverse to try and be the next big thing but it looks like a children's game from the mid 2000s.

    I am not sure his appointments make him be seen as a safe pair of hands? At least outside the UK all seems the same mess. Maybe inside the UK it seems or is better.

    Everything is relative. Plenty want Boris back but he's still being investigated for lying and if found guilty could trigger a general election which the Tories don't want to risk. Sunak is generally regarded to have handled the COVID situation pretty well and there is literally nobody else who seems capable. I think Gove has stabbed too many people in the back. 

    But yes, the markets stabilised, the pound went up and things settled down when he was appointed.

    That's the express though. Only old ladies read that and they're probably not happy there's an Indian doing the top job.

    Sunak has stabilized the markets and is generally seen as a safe pair of hands. The Tories won't be getting rid of him as there is literally nobody left who is any better.
