My views on breastfeeding:
I feel uncomfortable around it - even if it's my own sister -, and so do many (!) people. It's irrational, but the discomfort is there. Nevertheless there's no reason to ban the practice. The ideal solution would be for nursing mothers not to breastfeed in public if reasonably possible, and for nobody to complain when they do, because nobody has a God-given right in either direction. Just have a degree of empathy for your fellow man human, regardless of which side you're on!
The same reasoning applies to running around naked in public. There's no reason to forbid me from waving my schlong every which way in Times Square, but it's rather rude since many people don't want to see it, at least in my experience so far.
Not everything should need to be regulated by laws.
I agree with this in its entirety.

You might have an argument if you could lobby for men not to breast feed as well, I suppose.
Men's nipples secrete beer though. That's an actual medical reason not to feed your child that way.

puts hair on their chest and whatnot.

First off, SJW is extremely derogatory.
Sure it is, but I thought you associated yourself with the term at some point in the past. I must be mistaken on that I guess.
Second off, I'm not the one that said that.

OK, I'm just gonna say it, he said it's coming off as sexist- it might not to other people, but saying 'I'm insulted' doesn't argue any point whatsoever. It's little more than a whine. If you want him to stop saying that, prove and argue how it's not sexist instead of saying 'I've been insulted!'
well said, but I'm a she :D
You hold that opinion. Or at least, you agreed with someone about that opinion, which would be an odd thing to do if you didn't.

Third off, those things are not related like you think they are.
They are very much related. "Your rights end where my feelings begin" and so on.


Anyway, it was only a lighthearted comment on how your position conflicts with things you've said before. No need to get so het up about it.

The term, to clarify, is something not invented by rights advocates, but by 4channers, MRAs, red-pillers and what have you. It is specifically meant to be an insult, and is used by the most despicable kind of people. The kind of people that thik the causes we champion are stupid, women are inherently worthless and inferior, and black people are intellectually inferior and all criminals, and who have other colorful opinions about trasngendered people (some of them on 4chan actively working to get trans individuals to kill themselves,) and homosexuals.

Some times rights advocates will use it to throw it back in their face and lessen its power. Personally, I won't touch anything they are responsible for.

And that's why Sheb calls me conservative... I am, I really am, but I'm too young to be comfortable with it :D

Maybe you should check your oesophagus privilege. Skeletons don't drink juice like you and I do, they absorb it directly into the bone. Like a...

fucking derails.

EDIT: Right, breastfeeding.
So long as there are such things as public decency laws there is room to argue for making public breastfeeding illegal.

Hey, we all have our burden to bear! Having muscles and various tissues comes with all kinds of problems. Just because skeletons can't technically walk or breathe or drink juice doesn't mean MY problems don't matter just as much.

how about this? no kids or babies at restaurants AT ALL that aren't for children because they are disruptive, uncontrolled, and obnoxious most of the time.
I wasn't. I'd like to point out that this proposal shows a collectivist way of thinking...

I'm pretty sure collectivist is the go to phrase for everyone else on this forum for... everything.

Thinking kids are absolute monsters on average is not collectivist. Stop using that word every time you disagree with something I say. Christ. There's no way you are using it properly every time, either. Since it gets used in such a myriad of situations and whenever it feels convenient to the accuser.

Just going to chime in that this is a perfect use of the word collectivist as Helgoland has been consistently using it: assigning blame to a group for the actions of some of its members. In this case he was pointing out that not all kids are annoying, so it's not fair to punish them all for the actions of some.

Also, don't worry Helgo, we'll make a progressive of you yet.  :P

To be fair, he's already on the left side of German Crypto-Christian Democrat. Arguably he's already a progressive, just one in the style of an enlightened Kaiser.

It sort of feels this conversation has left the bounds of European Politics Discussion and turned into General Progressive Issues Discussion. I'd recommend the Calm and Reasonable Progressive Discussion thread or starting a new thread.
