    Know what? That you're at risk of tests? I'm sorry, I have no idea what you're talking about. Are you saying there's a tendency for people to comment on people's weight in photos? Um...okay, if you say so. I've already said that being overweight (and obese) compounds health risks, while also...

    I'm not sure what yours is either apart from the idea that obesity isn't a health issue, in which case, I completely disagree.

    The people "raging" about the obesity epidemic tend to be medical professionals. Who the heck are they harassing? Generally, the people who do the harassment and discrimination are everyday people, especially in the school ecosystem. Also, if you're obese, you're far more at risk from...

    Obesity absolutely is a problem. If you think it isn't, you're living in another universe. Also, I don't know what you're trying to say with point C. Are you trying to say that discrimination and mocking aren't problems? If so, I'd love to live in this universe. Abnormal? No. Rare? Yes.

    San Andreas is beating Modern Warfare, Witcher 3 is beating God of War, GTA5 is beating Arkham City, Breath of the Wild is beating Bloodborne. Disclaimer: No responsibility is taken for any damage towards BrawlMan's sanity in regards to these statements. :P

    You're describing a situation where it's impossible to not be prejudiced, you understand that, right? The person with malice is on the same level as the person without it. Well, yes, it does sound like feelings over facts. And that can have potentially lethal consequences. Look at the fat...

    I disagree with most of this. First, I agree that there's elements of external identity, but also internal, and I guess factual. To cite three examples: -Factual: Right-handed -External: Australian -Internal: Writer That I'm right-handed is a statement of fact, that I'm Australian is a...

    You're basically describing a situation where it's impossible not to discriminate by that criteria. This isn't even money-based. Working in local government (so, without the profit motive), you can literally walk from one suburb to the next and be a majority in one suburb, and a minority in the...

    There's your proof. Also, if you want to argue that Enter the Matrix isn't canon, you'd have to contend with how not only was it written by the Wachowskis, but its events are directly referenced in the third film. Whether you consider Enter the Matrix canon or not, it doesn't change the facts...

    You and I clearly have very different definitions of "distinctive." First, the person claiming that heterosexuals believe that there's something distinctive about them is the person on this thread that isn't heterosexual, while every heterosexual is saying the opposite, so you might want to...

    Gena Davis institute on Gender in media tries to link violent games to mass shootings and police violence

    I doubt many hetrosexual people will have the sense that there's something "fundamentally distinctive" about them. Again, I don't buy the "distinctive class" thing. Regardless of the term's origins, or any alternate term you use, most people, heck, most animals, are going to have an...

    Well then you haven't been looking at the statistics. Generally, the rate of people who classify themselves as LGBT has gone up as acceptance has, but not as much as you might think. 10% is a general average, encompassing both the younger and older generations, but even then, I've never seen any...

    Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome (5/10) Treating this as a movie, as while it was a web series originally, it's cut together as a movie on the DVD, and as far as editing, pacing, and structure goes, that's without issue. However, what IS an issue is that this really isn't that good. The...
