In Muslim court, it takes 4 women's testimonies to equal one man's, and if a woman is raped she must receive 100 lashes for being immodest. Just a couple months ago this happened and the girl died after the 80th lash. You must consider both sides in the argument.

To the testimonies thing: first of all it's 2 women's testimonies, not 4. and that was only because at the time most women were illiterate, so if a woman testified they needed to make sure that the testimony was correct. Islam freed women from ignorance - after the death of the Prophet Muhammad there were MANY Muslims women scholars and doctors and scientists.

OP gets the point, he's just saying that that post is overused, and that a lot of the time blind assumptions are right. Not things like "all Black people are uneducated", or "All women belong in the kitchen", but there IS a reason people assume fat people eat too much...

Doesn't give you any right to judge them still.

I'll probably get voted down for this, but whatever.

You're missing the point of the original post. It's not saying there is an excuse for everything or that no one's life is how you expect it. It's just saying don't judge people. The pregnant girl you see might be a **** or an irresponsible teenager. Or, she might have been raped. But unless you know her personally, you don't know for sure that she is one or the other. So isn't it better not to assume the worst? I'm not saying you should just assume she's been raped, just don't make any snap assessments. All I'm saying is don't judge someone or make assumptions, because there will always be exceptions.

Sorry for this super long rant.

Like at college?
Universities (when accepting applicants) always look for "leadership skills". But if they're accepting all leaders, then who do they expect to follow those leaders at the school?

Harry Potter was often late. For egs, in the seventh book he was late in arriving at Tonks' parents house, and then everyone else was late in arriving at the Weasleys' house.

No because the C stands for Chicken and we already agreed we can't replace the ch with the kh since it's already used in other languages like Arabic and German and Hebrew.

"Kh" is actually already used in some languages to make a sound that.. well it's not used in English. But what I mean to say is that "kh" is already called for. Sorry.

And at least give credit to the original poster, i.e. post a comment saying something like, "By the way, I got the idea for this post from DearBlankPleaseBlank."
