I'm Maya, obviously. I'm Lebanese; no no not lesbian, LEBANESE, as in I'm from and I live in Lebanon. The reason why my username is my name is because I'm not creative when it comes to names ok.
I'm not really new to the site, I've been on here for like a year and 2 months, but my old account got banned like two months after I made it. My old username was Expelliarmus, I'm not sure if any of you remember me because I was basically a nobody. I got banned because I supposedly was spamming but I really didn't mean to, I was trying to be funny :( Anyways I promise I won't spam again.
Even after I got banned, I've been going on the site like almost everyday, and I sometimes make posts and comments. I didn't think of making a new account back then because school was going to start soon so I thought I'd be better off without one. But now I really missed having an account, so I made this one.
I got a POTD while banned! http://amirite.net/719635
And I've made loads of posts, but there are a few posts I made that I really like and am proud of:
What really made me want to come back is that POTD from a few days ago about being attractive when making a duckface or scrunching your lips together. I even participated in it.
I'm the second girl on the top left corner: http://ctrlv.in/106687
Okay I think my bio's long now, even though most of what I wrote was about my life on amirite instead of my actual life. Feel free to message me I guess, I'd like to make friends again on the site, and hopefully some of the people I talked to back then will remember me lol.
This is somewhat ridiculous. Of course it depends. If an armed gunman is asking you for directions on how to get to the nearest elementary school, and you lie and lead him to a police station, then your lie is absolutely justified morally, logically, and does plenty of harm to said stranger. However, if there were a fire at an elementary school and the paramedics asked you for directions on how to get there, and you lied and led them to that same police station, then not only would the kids burn, but the paramedics would get shot by that gunman and you'd be an asshole. So it depends. I don't see how it could be any more objective than that. It //has// to depend.
That's two totally different questions and the answer to each is different, so the given answers are too vague. No it is not okay to lie to strangers, and yes, it does real harm. Lying is always wrong, no matter the circumstances. Before I continue, I want to define lying, because not every falsehood is a lie. From here out, lying will mean the deliberate choice to communicate against one's own conscience and/or with the intention to deceive. Things that are not lies include: certain white lies, jokes, being unaware you're not telling the truth, etc. Maybe you have an altered definition; if that's the case I'd like to know what you think. But anyone with a pulse knows lying is wrong regardless of law, or religion, or philosophy, right? I mean, lying is self evidently terrible. But most of the damage done when a lie is told, is done to the liar. This is clear from the guilt that liars feel, but the lied-to do not feel. Other self inflicted damage include softening of the conscience which is a slippery slope. If it's all good to lie to strangers, why not vague acquaintances, or close acquaintances, or distant friends, etc?
I would like to remind that the "dangly bits" are not the only difference between men and women, it's only one of the most obvious external physical differences. I believe if I were to cut off mine —god forbid— and trade it for two other pectoral dangling things, I'd still be a man (probably a traumatized one, though). I mean internal chemical differences, emotions/way of thinking (admitting that society is responsible for a great part of that).
Sorry, but gender is determined by working "dangly bits" and not what's in your head. If the voice in my head tells me I'm a ccamel, that doesn't make me a camel, that makes me either severely confused or have a chemical imbalance in my head.
Because of choice, preference, information, decision making, and individuality - it would be possible for a person raised in an atheistic household to have similar views and beliefs as a person raised in a Christian household. Amirite?
Sarcasm much? Who said anything about wanting gay people dead, wtf? I have the right to think however I want about a certain thing, which in this post is gayness, the same way gay people have the right to love and marry whoever they want.
Before anyone's like: "How the fuck does that work", this is an example to explain what I mean: Your daughter's getting married, but you really don't like her future husband and think he's the wrong guy for her. Even though, you still approve of her marriage and allow her to marry him because this is her life and her right.
