It certainly is improving, better in some countries than others. But still the world is becoming more and more aware of the struggels females face.

Yes, but people interpret it in a wrong way. You can have an opinion but one that is not insulting, streotyping, baseless and specifically directed at a certain nation/religion in order to harm them. It is not freedom of speech to go outside and scream "ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS!"...that would be classified as discrimination.

yes, some enjoy the excitement they get from being nasty. Normal people usually don't understand how someone can hate a stranger for no reason, but there are people like that. And the sad part is they are not afraid to do it (usually they do it in places where no one can see/hear and prove that it was said). This is like this in western countries. I know of some people who had gone through that.

Even though I'm not majoring in phil/history, I took some courses and they were very very good. Usually such courses talk openly about contraversial things which is great. People aren't afraid to say what they need to say.

In any case, I see you around here very often. I'm going to class right now. But I will talk to you when I see you again :) You are awesome!

Though it doesn't really change when you go of to university, most people will stay this way. It is unless you join the philosophy/history department then you get some real good debating done.

I have one, but many people aren't bothered with things like this because it involves thinking outside of what the "group" does and that is apparently "uncool" especially in my age group where "cool" is defined in how many people you've had **** with, smoking and how many beers u can take before falling asleep in your own vomit.

Same, I have one friend who enjoys talking about world issues. You make a good point, people are afraid to be different. But it is good to discuss these things, if everyone ignored them then there will never be change. Even though, we still experience issues they are slightly better then they were in the past. So we are making slow progress (better then nothing). People like you and many others are the ones that keep the world sane. Some are too stubborn to realize that the world is not what they make it in their mind. To be honest even after you graduate school, you won't find to many people who enjoy discussing things like this. I

It has been the problem for as long as humans had existed. If people truly understood the meaning of life we wouldn't have wars over things that are created by humans in the first place. And I agree with you on the age here. Some like to think that underaged people don't understand a thing about life, which is ignorance in iteself.

Good point, I didn't notice that. In any case, I really think that generalization is pretty ignorant. But hey, I can't change a persons mindset...

I never think that, maybe it's just you. Also ArchAngel makes a good point, it depends on the area you live in. And why would you suspect a black person. You are racist aren't you....

And you may just be right, this post wasn't my particular belief. It was simply a statement. Since I'm Agnostic I don't deny either possibility. In any case, if you would fear death all you need to imagine a dreamless sleep and it doesn't seem so bad anymore.

You should understand that what you have now was through hard work of those "annoying feminists". Plus, not all feminists truly understand the concepts of what it is like to be a true feminist. Some women believe that Feminism is a good way to hate on men, while the real ones hold intelligence and actually do work that helps. You shouldn't be against them for you are a woman, if it weren't for them you wouldn't have the rights you have today. Just look at Middle East...

this is very true. a lot of times, self-proclaimed feminists go the wrong way about trying to earn respect for women, but the basic feminist ideals are very true and very important.

If statement B is false and statement B says that statement A is true, then A is false. Neither exists.

That's also very true. Use the past as your tool to pave the future. You should be more specific next time so people can understand what you were trying to say.

It's not a good way to live your life by putting away your past. Your past is what makes you today. It is never too late to achieve your dreams, even if you are old. Unless your dream was to be a professional athlete and you are 82, then look at all your positive times during your youth and agree with that.

Ignorant and arrogant people find it easy because they never think before they say. I prefer to have some backround knoweledge of a person before I judge(not judge but have an opinion of a particular person). However, you are allowed to have preferences in who you want to be friends with or associate with(except for circumstances where you are ignorant and haven't thought about the outcome). It is your personal opinion to which you are entitled to. But it doesn't mean you can do it directly to their face.
