    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    On a different track as I don't want to spend the rest of my life discussing just the one topic.... Among the other pardons, a murderer who's family donated over $20,000 to the governor and a guy who cut a woman's head off because why wouldn't you pardon them...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    Yes, I know, women can be abusers but some kinds of criminal behaviour are far less common Everyone seems to default to bathrooms but they are just one of an endless list of gender segregated facilities. Bathrooms, spas, saunas, care homes, hospital wards, prisons, public baths. So while...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    OK lets start there at a safe space for women, a communal shower or changing room. Who can enter it, well clearly only women. So what defines who is a woman? If the answer to that question is self identity then essentially that is not a safe space for women any longer as anyone can make a claim...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    You know it's strange. I see "TERF" floating past my social media at times, recently its been about safe spaces for women or women's sports. But it crops up fairly frequently. You know what I've never seen, not even once? "TERM" which would be the same but relating to males instead of...

    Brexit.

    Twitter thread.... Johnson's made changes to his brexit plan. It's every bit as bad as you might fear. Biggest issues: Worker rights scrapped, environmental and consumer rights scrapped, rights for resident EU citizens and child refugees scrapped. All negotiations to take place in secret with...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    (bolding mine) It doesn't matter what the kid did or said. The kid could have called the guys mother a whore it doesn't matter. One is a child and one is paid, trained professional who should be conducting himself with the highest of professional standards mindful of his position representing...

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    And yet the banking crists of 2007-2008 hit almost every economy on earth, having drastic impacts causing businesses to fail, growing unemployment, changing access to credit, impacting on public services (and being the root of austerity measures in the UK which could reasonably be blamed for...

    Brexit.

    Well reading some of those 'reasons' just about makes me cry. The absence of thought..... Which could be rephrased as apart from trashing the economy, the tories are better custodians of the economy. Or this: When deciding who to stop and search the police cannot use their magic powers of...

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    I still blame this on our two-party systems which are based on endless conflict between two sides and seems to swing wider and wider into extremes. It's winner take all and they no longer care what it takes to win. Winning is all because winning is power.
