You've made the point that there's nothing wrong with dressing in revealing outfits, which I agree with, but following the logic of your comparison that "bullies are like the women and should not be blamed", you are also saying that there is nothing wrong or blameworthy with bullying, which I simply cannot agree with.
Whilst it is not by any means the sole cause, there are many, many cases of people who are bullied into depression who end up committing suicide. They do not simply "choose" to commit suicide - they are forced into a mental state where they feel it is the only option. In cases where the bully is well aware of the suicide risk, and deliberately push their victim to the point of suicide, I believe they should be legally accountable for the person's death. However, in most cases, the bully does not even consider this. I believe they should feel a moral responsibility, as they helped trap somebody in their own mind, feeling they had no other way to resolve their issues.
I do not condone suicide at all, because I know there is always another way, but I also think bullies, unlike rape victims, are somewhat blameworthy.

How in any way does that hurt you or anyone else if a woman chooses to wear a burka in public?

Is it too stealthy for you?

I don't know about anywhere else, but in Australia, people are banned from wearing motorbike helmets, for example, in buildings such as banks or shops, as they need to be identifiable by security cameras if something goes wrong, such as if a crime occurs. I think if there is a law banning helmets, then burkas should also be banned in those places, because they limit identification much the same way as helmets, and I don't believe they should be an exception.

But I don't think they should be banned in public in a general sense. If people are allowed to wear a motorbike helmet or cover their face in some other way, then the burka should not be limited, either.
I have no problems with people choosing to wear a burka for religious reasons, but I don't think the fact that is a religious thing should exempt it from other rules.

Now I'm wondering if there'd be a situation where you would be mean to somebody but nice about them behind their back.

I guess that's more likely to be a good friend.
Like, you rag on them to their face, but stick up for them behind their back, because you being mean is "joking"?

It depends if you then go on to not be nice about them behind their back.
If you're always nice then that's cool. But if you act differently then that's pretty much what being two faced means.

If you're being over-the-top nice, or acting like you're best friends with the intention to mislead them, then I think it's two-faced. If you're just being civil, avoiding confrontation, etc. then I don't think it's two faced. Like, a good friend of mine has a boyfriend who I cannot stand, but I still treat him like a decent human being. I don't go out of my way to flaunt the fact that I don't like him behind his back, but I don't go out of my way to 'fake nice', either. I don't think that's being two faced. It's being mature and knowing when to let stuff go and tolerate personalities that you do not find appealing.

If we assume time to be infinite, then an event occurring today is the same as an event occurring 10 years from now (temporally speaking of course). This is so because relative to infinity, 10 years passing by is the same as no time passing by. As a result, you could call events simultaneous.

There are an infinite number of numbers, but that does not mean that 3 and 8392 are the same thing.

I think their argument is less credible, but not necessarily invalid. Correct spelling and grammar, however, is far more persuasive than poor English skills.

I think immortality would suck if you ended up frail and weak, as life would be very difficult. Also, if you were the only immortal one, I think it would be very difficult to make new friendship groups and watch all your friends die as you live on.

I have absolutely no problems with opinion columns being published, as long as it is perfectly clear what is opinion and what is fact. My only issue with it arises when opinions are presented as fact.

It actually is considered a science, and math comes in to the statistics of psychological research.

How would that be the logic?

If nothing was impossible, then the impossible would be impossible. If the impossible is impossible, then something (the impossible) is impossible, making the initial statement false.

What about medical procedures that cause pain, such as injections, Lumbar punctures, surgery? I realise that in the long run, the physical pain helps the person, but it is still physically hurting someone.

No, I understood the point. I agree that kicking a guy in the balls is not the only physical harm that should be more frowned upon, but I do not agree with the part of the post that says "any reason other than self defence".
