Hey, if the dude can manage a cowl neck and the twig and berries stay under the dress, just let him roll.

Depends on the hat shape? But you have good cheekbones, and the level at which the pigtails come in highlights them well in terms of shape.

Like guest said above, unless they have a "no political t-shirts" or "no graphic tees" policy, there should be nothing dress code-able about this.

This isn't remotely offensive, unless you're REALLY sensitive about politics.

Which is why, in a separate discussion, I suggested that using capitalism heavily alloyed with some of the principles of other basic economic theories is a better idea.

I'm sorry. Both options suck, though.

Merriam-Webster: Capitalism: an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market
Capitalism is primarily about the concept and use of *capital* property (i.e., means of production), not necessarily the basic concept of property itself. A complete free market is an oxymoron, because a free market has no anti-monopoly regulations and thus quickly becomes unfree.

That's neat as hell, but how visible is it on a rainy, crowded highway?

The discussion would be moot, unless you were particularly interested in the vagaries of Christian theology, which is, like most religions, about half and half "a really neat way of looking at things" and "impressively fucked up."

Tarot - Okay, never mind. I was going to use the concept of original sin as a discussion if you were.

Weird question, Tarot - and I swear this is not going the obvious direction - are you by any chance Christian?

Geez, it's almost like you cherry-picked parts of the article and missed the entire fucking point. Having racist attitudes DOESN'T magically reduce you to a "racist," which was half the argument of the article.
And why the quotation marks around "classism"? Classism is defined as "prejudice against or in favor of people belonging to a particular social class," as which instinctual distrust of someone because of their perceived level of wealth definitely qualifies.

Okay, that's genuine bullshit because literally everyone is, in some form, prejudiced, usually in multiple ways. I was sent, as one of like, five people in my grade whose parents only made a five-figure income, to an elite private school, so I'm classist as fuck if I don't watch myself. I subconsciously distrust anyone who dresses like they've never looked at a raveled hem, said ".....eeeh," and sewed it up with cheap thread until something *else* on the pants broke. That and I have a HUGE problem with ignorance of black culture, because as much as my parents believed in civil rights, I just never really saw the parts of town where most black people lived. Rural America can be weird that way.

Well, my alternative is to believe that 70% of the people I meet (welcome to a red state!) intentionally WANT the lives of their female relatives to be a steaming pile of bullshit. Maybe I just like sticking my head in the sand, but I generally assume that human beings, with a few notable exceptions, don't deliberately set out to harm other human beings unless there's some benefit in it for them.

Well, the point of those videos is that you totally CAN be sexist without knowing it, and have to be open to the concept in order to fix it. Actually, for a humor website, Cracked has a really good piece on why the overstigmatization of prejudice (racism, sexism, etc) actually harms the effort to remove the influence of the prejudice:

Well, abandoning capitalism doesn't necessarily mean you abandon the concept of property - it's only if you go full swing into Communism or Socialism. Capitalism works best when alloyed with some of the principles of socialism - not far enough to remove incentive, but far enough to do things like, say, remove most of the negative effects of a parent's poverty from their child's education. In this way, the society as a whole does not lose the contributions of a person because of their parents' situation. The other problem with Capitalism is that most of the time it becomes so focused on the development of direct economic capital that it ignores and devalues less material resources that are still necessary for continued value improvement on a large scale - things like social capital and emotional labor. It also has a tendency to hyperspecialize labor beyond the point the human psyche will bear well.

If you own clothes, a house, and food, then yes, you are using material possessions as a defense mechanism against the inevitability of your death. First-line defense, really.

Capitalism is, at base, the concept that the owner of a material resource is entitled to a share of the profits of the use of said resource, regardless of whether he contributes any of the labor - i.e., if you hire a factory to produce your line of clothing, your money goes in part to paying the laborers who actually make the clothes, and in part towards the owner of the factory. In theory, this is a nigh-perfect system - the trade provides value for you (ideally you wanted a line of clothes produced for a value-producing reason), the laborers, and the factory owner, rewarding the effort and materials originally invested in obtaining or creating the factory.
Crowdsourcing in instances such as gofundme *can* be used in a similar fashion, but more often they're used in a collectivist fashion, in order to provide a conversion from social to concrete resources in order to pay off a debt owed in the capitalist economy.

Something like. Needs some security features fixed, and there's this bug that lets some apps monopolize the CPU's resources.
