The Dude is right. Amirite ?

Explained by Darkest_Serenity...

at what point does someone's opinion cause you to want that person silenced in some way. When it's dangerous (ie inciting violence in others against others/Pedophiles not included , they bring out my very aggressive side and I make no apologies for my feelings about that Scum) , when it's offensive(ie Racist) or when you just think "OMG that's such an idiotic comment , how can you think like this"( ie Lib's are Pussy wearing Fem Nazi's /Con's are Women hating misogynists) *you get my drift* I want to discuss this / want your feedback/thoughts/opinions.........Ser

I agree. It's amazing how people these days seem loath to accept that someone may not agree with their political opinion. Usually there is some policy issue/idea that starts the the discussion which then immediately goes right to accusassions of hatred, lying, steeling, racist, misogyny, ..etc Without ever even bringing up any pros or cons of the original idea. There is no real discussion or sharing of ideas. There is only I hate Trump and the stupid conservatives that elected him, or I hate Hillary and the asinine liberals that voted for her. Actually, talking about religion is a welcome relief these days in comparison. Ha!

I think we've both mellowed out JD you certainly have and I agree about the constructive criticism being acceptable , that's something I usually choose to learn from.

Like my belief that all Pedophiles are scum and have no place on this Earth , no one will ever change my views on that particular issue and I have a firm grasp on that rope. If someone challenged me on this , I know I would get angry with them.

I'll admit that there are many that I disagree with but rarely say anything about it. I usually just skip past most of those long rebuttals to things I see here. I respect people's opinions whether I agree or not.

There a several people, here, that hold fundamentally different opinions than my own. Some, I am able to have constructive conversations with. And I respect those people, and their opinions.
But...there are those that gather together to criticize, humiliate, go to other sites to denigrate, people here, only because of differences. And...mostly, they are either blocked by or have blocked the people they are attacking. We all know who those people are. Their opinions I DO NOT respect, as I do not respect them, as people. When I see them spouting their hateful words and ideas, I will respond with vigor.

It happens more and more these days.
I don't know where people get the idea that there is no right or wrong anymore. That every point of view is valid and so on. We see it all the time here on Amirite. Most of the time conservative folks like me are told to STFU or go back to 1800's where I came from, loosen up and so on. I'm glad to see our senior moderator Ser did find a boundary line somewhere near pedophilia. But even in a recent discussion on that topic here I was dismayed to find so many willing to accept the depraved behavior. I was reminded that it's still legal in some states for example.

What CAN we do? Well, what I've been doing is standing firm on what I know is right and decent. Take the ridicule of the 'enlightened ones', fight back as appropriate.

I agree that marrying children is sick and perverted.

For the sake of clarity, when discussing the matter, you might want to be more specific in as much as making a case for pedophilia could be at least complicated if the 'victim' is married to the perp.

Without an effort for clarity, one could make a case that information was purposely left out.

Does that make sense?

I've not seen a major religion that condones or promotes pedophilia - other that Islam. I agree, it's horrible.

Again Carla - religion condoning pedophilia is a different topic than children getting married.

I understand that we assume sexual intercourse within marriage. And, we have agreed that we both disapprove of children getting married.

But, if you MEAN religion approving of children marrying, for the sake of clarity, that's what you should write! Your comment is unnecessarily inflammatory. And future comments will be assumed to be hyperbole as well.

How is any person (without supernatural powers) supposed to understand that what you REALLY mean is that some religion allows under age marriage.

By the way, it's state law that governs the legal age for marriage.

thanks Budwick (smile) Empathy , many want to empathize with others
I will never have an ounce of empathy for a Pedophile in any form even if it's seen to be Legal by some and by Law it makes me Sick to my Stomach to think about what some Young Girls are put through.

of course there is right & wrong but everyone's feelings about what is right & wrong are different very different in some cases and there are as you know so many factors that make us who we are and from those factors stem our own unique belief system , our own moral code.

Darkest_Serenity Darkest_Serenity OP

I'm not particularly interested in silencing others' opinions unless they include actual threats of violence or law-breaking. This also happens to be where the 1st Amendment draws the line (i.e. death threats are not protected speech, but almost everything else is). And in this case it's an action that needs to be dealt with, not so much an opinion that needs to be silenced.

For the most part, the solution to a bad opinion is a good opinion: to engage in a dialogue or an argument, not to try and silence the other person. If you think someone else has terrible ideas, then demonstrate that those ideas are terrible. Drown them out with your great ideas.

Sometimes the best solution is just not giving the person any attention at all. So what if some weirdo believes something I strongly disagree with? Who cares? Giving them attention might be exactly what they want and I don't want to play into that.

Way too many people on here can't express their TRUE opinion without getting attacked and being labeled.

It's been going on since I've joined, members automatically label others because of a comment. I'm the culprit of body shamming, racist, bigot ... blah blah blah.

I skip a lot of posts just so I don't have to deal with some members. My life isn't here on Amirite, I come here to have fun ... or at least try.

I have little tolerance for hate speech. Racism, misogyny, heterosexism, anti-Semitism, etc...I loathe it and those who espouse it. I think it negatively effects all of us regardless of whether or not we are part of the targeted group.

I would not support "silencing" it as I don't believe in censorship. However we don't have to accept it, respect it, or give it any sense of validity. We should always oppose it whenever we encounter it.
