It's funny how the only thing preventing world peace is the one species that wants to achieve it, amirite?
@VicZinc Why the double standard? Humans only natural predator is human (except a few microbes that we are good at...

Genocide and wars and robberies and abuse of all kinds, destruction of ecosystems, destruction of species just for their home lands to use, all those arent quite the same as a lion catching an antelope. Their murder is at least justified, but for humans it's just arrogance and unfair claims of the planet

A class of kindergarteners can fight occasionally and play together and still be at peace, but if an 8th grader comes in and stabs half of them and then uses the rest as chairs for himself, that's not peace anymore.

Guns aren't going anywhere. There is no reason to let emotions run wild and ban firearms. Israel has had no school shooting since it adopted a policy that arms teachers on school grounds almost 40 years ago. Thailand has had school shootings drop drastically since they employed the same policy eight years ago. Kennesaw, Georgia hasn't had a single homicide in 25 years since requiring every household to own a firearm. We need MORE guns in the hands of responsible citizens.

I disagree because I don't think that more guns is going to deal with the issue. People shouldn't have to carry guns to feel safe. Most criminals turn to crime because of things like drug addiction, poverty, etc. And most of the gun massacres are done by mentally disturbed people who legally own the weapons they use. More guns isn't going to solve those problems.

It's frustrating how there can be Gay Pride parades and Black History month, but if there was a Straight Pride parade or White History month, people would freak out, amirite?

Oh my lord. White people and straight people are not oppressed. We learn A LOT about white history is school. For example, AP classes. AP World history or AP European history. No AP African history. No AP Latino history. No AP Asian history. Straight pride? What? I'm free to tell anyone I'm straight without fear of being shunned or kicked out. One or two bad experiences with the oh so scary colored people does not constitute oppression. Most scholarships end up going to white kids anyway, yes, there are a few scholarships that end up going specifically to POC. And it angers me when people say "I knew I would have gotten that scholarship over that stupid minority kid! wahh!" How the fuck do you know? You're not automatically smarter because you're white. You know what? How come a Latino/black person can't be successful without having someone saying "IT'S ONLY CUZ OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!11111 YOU ONLY GOT ACCEPTED INTO COLLEGE CUZ UR A COLORED PERSON AND U GOT PICKED OVER A DECENT,HONEST WHITE CHILD!11 OPPRESSION!" Do you know how it feels like to be hardworking and smart, and ALWAYS have someone questioning whether you only got the job/got into college/other because you're a POC?

Click "Yeah You Are!" to vote for Obama, and "No Way!" to vote for Rommey. Let's see who wins this! amirite?

This isn't a vote for Romney. I just don't like this post.

I'm voting for Regina George because she got hit by a bus.

It's a bit ridiculous that Amanda Todd gets so much attention yet many other people who have committed suicide or given their lives for a cause are just ignored in comparison, even if it's a nice gesture to her in an afterlife it's a slap in the face to everyone else who doesn't get a massive fan page about how great they are, amirite?

It's not like we should all decide that because we don't/can't give this attention to everyone, we shouldn't give it to anyone. I think when things like this happen it really reinforces the idea that people need to be careful in how they treat others.

It's really hard to defend the fact that 95% of black people in the US are going to vote for Obama this year. Think about it, if 95% of white people voted for Romney, we'd have riots, amirite?

About the same percentage of black people have been voting Democrat for the past couple elections. Maybe it's not because of skin color. Maybe it's because, gasp, Democrats clearly have their interests at heart.

It's cool to think about what amirite users could be or have done; they could be one of the top athletes in their country, a chess master, have climbed Mt. Everest, a child genius, rich, or famous and we have no idea, amirite?

I'm secretly Allstate. shh smilie

It's common to hear "these people aren't pro-life, they're pro-birth" and this is true for those that call themselves pro-life yet aren't willing to help the mother after the baby is born. However, this same reasoning can also be applied to pro-choicers that aren't willing to help after the baby is born. In order for something to be a choice, there must be other equally viable options available, otherwise you're only supporting one "choice," amirite?

Pro-choice is exactly that, a CHOICE. we're not exclusively supporting abortion, nor exclusively supporting birth of ALL fetuses. We're saying if you feel like you can't support the baby when it's born, an abortion is the other option you speak of. If you can't support it but you want to have the child anyway, that's not our choice and we shouldn't have to help because of it. I'm not responsible for women who have a child and can't support it, nor am I responsible for women who have an abortion. I just support their right to do what they choose.

You don't think the rich should pay more in taxes, amirite?
@thatsmagicthat If they started making rich people pay more taxes then there would be less incentive to having well paid jobs like...

Well...no...look at countries where the rich do may more taxes. That's not the case at all, in fact, with better education and welfare and a greater degree of social mobility, more people aspire to those roles because more people have the means to so so.

A fresh, natural look on girls is so much more attractive than a girl who is caked in makeup, amirite?

They're both equally shitty drawings.

The majority of the wage gap is not a result of gender discrimination. Instead, it exists because of numerous factors which are intentionally left untouched by feminist organizations, amirite?

Hey guess what OP, I've read that before. We covered it in a college class. It's all BS.

A couple of problems with it :

It doesn't take into account any amount of testing/experiments done on this issue. Identical resumes are sent to employers, one male one female, guess who gets the call back the majority of the time? Just coincidence, is it? (Similar testing is done with white sounding names versus more ethnic names with similar results, but that's a bit off subject.)

"Total hours paid" - They're suggesting that the reason women appear to be paid less is because men just work longer hours so when you average it out it just seems that women are paid less. What they leave out is that they included part time workers in that "study." Of course they are working less, those people were specifically part time. And often times employers will fill part time positions with females while males are offered more substantial work. But even with similar hours, experience, education, etc women are still underpaid.

OK, experience. Time and time again women are hired to do menial jobs, never gaining work experience that was offered to their male counterparts, to their disadv...

How can they ever expect to move forward if they can't gain the work experience that they need?

Women are still assumed to be the caretaker. Women are constantly asked about their home responsibilities (children) while mostly men are not. Does she have to take them to school? Who will pick them up? What if they get sick, how much time off will she need? Oh, I can see she's a risky hire! While with men it's assumed that he has a dutiful wife to take on all of those responsibilities. It's almost never assumed he would perform such womanly duties. I guess there are no such thing as single fathers.

Look kid, it doesn't take a genius to see that women continue to get the short end of the stick, or why. What I don't understand is why people insist on denying it. It's difficult enough being a woman trying to make a career, now try throwing ethnicity into the mix. Or poverty. Kid, the world is full of prejudice and discrimination. Open your eyes.
