I mean, it's just common knowledge. Black is usually slimming and complimentary. White often makes one seem larger than they actually are, especially with pants, since they're tight around the butt/legs area.

Okay I don't mean to be judgemental, but is this legit a 16 year old talking about meeting a 25 year old on the Internet? Forgive me, but that is date rape waiting to happen.

I think it's poor phrasing and it's really just dependent on the person's view on it. It could go either way. Personally I don't like the idea of someone saying that to me.

I agree, it's the word "thick" that really bugs me. Personally, I love my thighs. They're muscular and strong and fast. But to be told by a guy that you're "thick" is just insulting.

Everyone still would have the ability to vote. They have the ability to pass the test, which wouldn't be that difficult. Does it really matter if someone ignorant on the policies trying to be imposed doesn't get a say in them? Do you really think those ignorant people care anyway? Wouldn't it be better if they didn't get a say? The right to vote is not being taken away. Oh well, some people would just have to be butt hurt. We would still be a democratic society.

Yes it does matter if a person ignorant of the policies trying to be imposed doesn't get a say in them. No matter how uneducated that person is, they should get a say in who leads them. That moral is what America was based upon, the right to choose.

Okay, sorry about that last comment. I for some reason thought you only said "so what?" in that comment, so that's what I replied to.
Obviously people are going to be "butt hurt" since they got a civil right, maybe the most important, taken away. The ability of the public to choose who leads the public is the prime factor in a democratic society. Without the entire population giving their vote on who leads them, how will we function as a complete society? Tell me, what is a citizen without it's ability to in some way control who leads them? They are only sheep, they are not citizens. Tell me, what is a democratic society without the option to choose who leads the public?

At the risk of repeating myself, this isn't an argument about whether voting is a right, this is an argument about why that right is given freely to those who would abuse it and kept from those who haven't been alive long enough.
Surely if you believe that saying "No, you don't understand the topic well enough, you may not vote." is unethical, then you agree that saying "No, you have not been alive long enough, you may not vote." is even worse.

I understand that. The right is given freely because our forefathers wanted citizens of America to have the right to choose their political leaders. If they want to abuse their own civil rights, so be it, as it is their civil right to abuse. If they want a certain person to lead them because of any reason, it is their right, and their right alone to vote for that person. You cannot simply take away one's civil right because they did not pass your test that supposedly tells if one has an adequate understanding of politics.
No, I agree with the age limit. 18 is the legal age of adulthood, it makes sense that an adult who now has the other freedoms an adult can enjoy, would be able to enjoy the freedom of voting.

So in your view, anyone who has comitted a crime or been prosecuted of committing a crime of any size is no longer an American citizen. Alrighty then. What do they become?
When you said "I'm going to assume you live in America" it just indicated you were too lazy to go and check where the poster was from, which was just plain stupid really. The post itself doesn't actually look at it from the American perspective. It doesn't look at it from within any country, so why bother arguing it from one specific country's perspective?
I like how you didn't respond to my earlier point that your Constitution isn't always right. And that it has been Amended to fit the changes within your society.
I mean, the Constitution didn't allow women to vote until the 20th Century. What if everyone had just sat around and said "THAT'S UNCONSTITUTIONAL" instead of actually changing the Constitution to change it for the better?

omfg remember when i said I wasn't arguing the rights of a felon? Because I do not remember saying anything about someone who has committed a crime. I actually believe I have not given my view on them at all in this discussion, so, awks. Please stop stating my opinions for me.
WOW no it didn't obviously I'm going to argue it from America's point of view because I'm American so I know the law best over here. Thanks for the lazy and stupid comment though, appreciate it.
I don't even remember that earlier point. I do remember saying I didn't want to argue with you because I'm already discussing this with like 4 other people.
I mean, that point is so invalid because that was a discussion of people who did not have the right to vote, and this discussion is about people who want to take away other people's right to vote. DIfferent cases.
K talk to you later.

So what? It's not going to ruin their life, and it's better for the country. Who really cares if some people get butt hurt, they didn't even know what they were voting for obviously because they didn't pass. The world shouldn't be a shittier place than it needs to be just so some people can feel better.

Wow. Reread your Constitution. Not all American citizens have the right to vote. In Kentucky and Virginia there's a long-life denial of the right to vote to all citizens with a felony record.
Furthermore, this post doesn't say anywhere "this will only affect America".
I also find the fact that you assumed the poster was American was suspect, considering it really had no relevance. At all. Whatsoever. The poster has also not said "if you failed the test you could never take it again" they have said that the test should be taken at least once, implying the opportunity for people to actually get educated on politics and take the test again, which would surely increase democracy as it would involve increased political participation--many people don't get involved in politics, and this might actually increase turnout at elections if people have to actually know about politics to be able to vote.

1. I knew everything you said in that first paragraph. I was obviously not arguing about the rights of a felon.
2. Remember when I said "I'm going to assume you live in America."? Yeah, that should have indicated that I was arguing from America's standpoint. With America's laws and constitution.
Please read my other comments, as I don't want to continue repeating the same thing.

It wouldn't be taking away their right to vote, it would be making sure that those who wanted to vote formed their own opinion.
Okay, lets say the thing I said happened, and you could only vote if you showed that you understood politics, and you wanted to vote on a coming election, but you didn't think you'd pass the test, would you be more likely to read up on the election, considering all the candidates and reading up an all the issues and how the propose to resolve them, or would you just not vote, and complain about how your rights were taken away while thinking "if only the constitution were here".
People would still have the right to vote, but not if they were going to abuse it.

Okay, I get where you're coming from now. I agree, a test to make sure people understood what they're voting on would be beneficial. But the actual act of saying "No, you don't understand the topic well enough, you may not vote." is unethical.

That comment's a bit backwards, as taking away people's right to vote because you don't agree on how they are using that freedom is unfair. The constitution is fair. That's what I'm trying to argue here.
