The point of feminism (in this case) isn't "don't hit women" it's "maybe don't hit anyone?"

Fun fact! Because the majority of knights were right handed, stairwells were built counter-clockwise so that the knights protecting the castle would have a greater range of motion going down than the knights that were attacking going up

First of all, repost. Should be deleted. Secondly (and I'm not going into detail on this like I did the first time) no. The word pusillanimous does mean cowardly, but when someone says "don't be a pussy" it is in reference to female genitalia and it is shitty and it needs to stop.

One item that OP missed is that in order to vote, you MUST BE REGISTERED. Please, do not forget to register to vote. Dates vary by state, but there is always a cutoff date to register by.

That's not how the electoral college works. It's kinda like the house of representatives in that it's based on population. In fact the number of electoral college representatives a state has is the number of congressional representatives + the number of senators.
So why does your vote matter? Because the way the electoral college works is that whichever candidate gets the most votes in your state is who your electoral college representatives vote for.
So all you have to do is cast your vote to ensure that your desired candidate is the one who receives the majority in your state.

Actually, it was very intentional. The term "Uncle Sam" dates back to WWI, when soldiers would get care packages from their families and the addresses would say "u.s." legend is that one smart ass soldier kept referring to the "u.s." as his "uncle Sam"

Okay, so in previous years Starbucks holiday cups had holiday-like designs on them. This year it is a minimalist red cup.
A few, and I mean literally just like 2 or 3, people made videos complaining about the cup. The conservative media RAN with this story about how this was an "attack on Christmas" and "an attack on Christians" and how "Christian groups were outraged" when in reality the only people they could ever cite as being outraged were the same 2, or 3, people everytime.
So really only 2 or 3 people are complaining about it, and the rest of the world is complaining about those 2, or 3, people, imagining them to number in the hundreds that are outraged over the cup.
It is the single most idiotic event I remember of 2015.

Actually, that proves how photoshopped it is. In reality, when you light a match and hold it up to see its shadow, you don't see smoke trailing off the tip, you actually see just the match (because fire is a light source and therefore cannot have a shadow)

No, actually it was meant to protect us as a nation from other nations because when the constitution was written, the united states didn't have a standing army. The 2nd amendment made it so that way if we were ever invaded by a foreign nation, there would be some form of a military (in this case "a well-regulated militia") to protect us.

Pusillanimous 16 comments
guest · 7 years ago
Okay, but don't let ANYBODY tell you that that is what the put-down "pussy" means.
Yes, pusillanimous does mean cowardly, as does to be a "pussy," but the derogatory slang of "don't be a pussy" is in reference to the female genitalia because society has equated femaleness with being afraid, weak, cowardly, and meek-all of which are equated to the slang term "don't be a pussy."
It's an example of how misogyny infiltrates nearly every level of our society.

The Onion speaks truth 31 comments

This "article" (and I use the term loosely, because it's the onion) is referencing the USA. I don't know what USA you know, but guns are FAR from illegal here. Statistics, studies, and the practices of other countries, have proven that the banning of (at least SOME types of) guns reduce the occurrence of mass shootings. By a LOT. Because guns are so readily available in this country, more people get hurt by them; however, if there was less access to these weapons, the united states would be a safer country.

Morgan, what you just described is gender. A person born with both male and female parts, or xxy chromosomes, are intersex- THAT is their sex. Their gender is then PERCEIVED as male, but in reality they could identify as either male or female. Or both. Or neither. And why would it matter to you?

Police getting yelled at 68 comments
guest · 7 years ago
Yes, hats off to the police. Those that are doing their jobs correctly are keeping the American public safe and deserve to be applauded, BUT I do have a few complaints:
1. Roughly 5 out of these 6 memes were racist stereotypes.
2. There are cops that are NOT doing their job correctly and that does not get addressed nearly as often as it should.
3. When officers are found to be acting outside the parameters established the law, they are not punished and THAT needs to change.
I'm probably paraphrasing here, but Jon Stewart said something along the lines of "you are allowed to think highly of the police and still want them held to a high level of accountability. The two are not mutually exclusive."
