Why are these things still an issue? and simple explinations why its dumb.

These things are major issues for everyone, and by everyone I mostly mean the USA.

Race:
this is so stupid to argue about now a days. all men are not created equal, but should be treated as equals. I make racist jokes based on common public stereotypes. but i'm not racist for real. ( and seriously not only black people like fried chicken, everyone likes fried chicken, like bacon, it is amazing.)

Abortion:
This all stems from religious zealots who think it is immoral to kill an unborn child.
It is the woman's body. leave it up to her to decide what to do with it....it really is that simple.

Feminism:
if a man can walk around topless and let his man boobs hang out, so should women be allowed to let their woman boobs hang out. its a moot issue.

Death penalty:
Should only be used when there is beyond a reasonable doubt and full proof that the crime has been committed. Should not take months. I say bring back firing squads. each inmate on death row is costing everyone money. lets go down the list and start Hitler-ing them all into a gas chamber.

These are all my not so humble opinion. the wonderful thing about opinions is they are immunity to being wrong.

what is your opinion?

    The only one that I don't agree with here is the Death penalty. Life can't pay for another life, and will only cause more people to suffer, also, you can never be 100% sure that someone did commit the crime that they are being charged for.

    I can respect that opinion. even I am not solid in my own opinion in this case. because an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind. but there has to be a better way other then let just lock them up and feed them and have them living better then homeless people.

    they could always work for their food... theres plenty of jobs nobody wants so make the inmates do it. you wanna eat? you stamp that license plate.

    and if i see someone shoot and kill someone else, i'm very positive that they're guilty of murder. my opinion on it is this, kill the guilty bastard. they gave up their right to life by taking someone elses. it'll help with overpopulating and save on prison costs. if you're on death row, you have 24hours before you die. imagine how much that'd save...

    I don't agree with the death penalty
    but other than that i agree with you

    like I said to firecracker119 too. my opinion on that is shaky at best, but there needs to be a better way.

    I agree with most of this, though when it comes to feminism there's a matter of accountability that needs to be addressed. Many women today have grown up with the idea that they don't have to be accountable for their actions. And where I live firing squads are still an available method of execution.

    What do you mean by "accountable for their actions"?
    - Ertrov September 6, 2013, 2:47 am
    Before I answer that I want to know what you think I mean by "accountable for their actions"
    - triclebickle September 6, 2013, 4:09 am
    I'm not making any assumptions until I know more specifically what you meant.
    - Ertrov September 13, 2013, 1:02 am
    I mean that many women today believe nothing is their fault.
    Examples: Woman dresses in revealing outfit, gets mad and calls men perverts when they look at her tits. Woman gets drunk at a party and sleeps with an equally drunk guy only to wake up and regret her decision, says the guy raped her.
    Of course I'm not saying all women are like this or do these examples, most of the time it's over a petty thing that would be fixed by a simple oops and a sorry, but many women are like this.

    Interesting topic to think about...
    Race is and always will be a fucked up issue in America, mostly for its historical aspects, which have lead to more modern problems such as difference in education, prison incarceration, median income, earning potential, it goes on and on. Yes everyone should be treated as equals, but that is just not going to happen in a world of humans. And too, everyone has their own ideas about it. I try to treat everyone equally and give the benefit of the doubt, but because of circumstance (I live in a community where I really have limited interactions with people of different races) and my own preconceptions ( I make racist jokes based on stereotypes too, including my own race, yes I'm white) I am probably not as even handed as I think I am. Don't really know how to solve that issue personally, and when people are just fine being racist, not sure how that issue is gonna get resolved on a societal level.
    Abortion- I also believe this is a religious issue. Not only do I not believe in any type of god, or crazy human religions about him, I also believe in the separation of church and state, I think that a government ban on abortion is a violation of that. I'd like it if people would consider it in another way...What gives people the right to make a decision, as personal and intimate as whether or not to have an abortion, for someone else?? That is a lot of hubris.
    Feminism- Not sure what I think here but men with man-boobs should NOT be allowed to walk around shirtless!!!
    Death Penalty- I think it should be abolished, except perhaps in the case of child molesters, they can serve absolutely no purpose in society and are sick beyond the ability to recover. Otherwise, I don't think one person's crime allows me, or the government, to commit another (taking their life). And with all the evidence that so many people are wrongly convicted in the first place....plus the whole idea is that capitol punishment deters crime, it doesn't. We need to rethink our whole conception of crime and punishment in America.
    Great points for consideration! +3

    +1 for a well thought out response.

    Notes on Capital punishment:
    there has to be another way, other then making those who commit these crimes a leech on the rest of society for the rest of their lives. when a hard working man becomes homeless and is not eating as well as a prisoner who killed another person I think there is a major flaw in the system
    - decrotie2004 August 29, 2013, 10:31 am
    Thanks, yeah I couldn't agree more that there is a major flaw in the system, I'm not sure how to go about correcting something like that but stopping this would be a good start, http://colorlines.com/archives/2010/10/arizonas_draconian_and_constitutionally_suspect.html
    Maybe a look at what some european countries do in regards to alternatives to the death penalty...Not that I've actually looked into that, but as far as I know many of them have abolished the death penalty...

    quick question, if you're an undocumented immigrant, isn't that illegal anyways?

    note to decrotie: the average income of a person on welfare and a working middle class family are roughly equal with some states paying more for welfare than a working class family EARNS.

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/08/21/welfare-pays-more-than-entry-level-work-in-a-shocking-number-of-states-study/

    keep in mind, anything dealing with federal anything will have politically biased "facts" so take with salt
    - MIKYTEY August 30, 2013, 5:00 pm
    Oh, I was actually referring to the issue of people who work for private prison companies writing laws that are then passed by states. When these businesses (the private prisons) are essentially writing their own laws which benefit them, it'll be damned hard to change the prison system (of which the death penalty is only one problem).

    I'll just one one of your statements here since I don't have a whole lot of time right now.
    Race is still an issue because of stuff like this
    "I make racist jokes based on common public stereotypes. but i'm not racist for real."

    the difference here, being I make these jokes in private, in mixed company. Not at a supremacist rally, on the news, or out in public.
    - decrotie2004 August 28, 2013, 11:15 am
    The fact of the matter is that you're keeping that door open. I, too, am guilty of this. When we make these jokes, people may be hearing them for the first time; and although we know we're joking, they may not. Even if they do know we are joking, we are still planting the seed of racism. If you have a problem with racism, I highly suggest that you take the time to evaluate your derogatory jokes and pretty much nix them all.

    " I, too, am guilty of this"

    those who live in glass houses, should not throw stones
    - decrotie2004 August 29, 2013, 4:09 pm
    i wasn't racist till i joined the military and met the real stereotypes...

    i'm guilty of it, but selectively.
    and stones make the best projectiles :)
    - MIKYTEY August 30, 2013, 5:02 pm
    selective racism might as well be called an "opinion". and in that case as long as I keep my opinion to myself. not a racist.

    p.s. im sure you also don't go around spouting racial slurs in public... you know like a lot of lower class people do.
    - decrotie2004 September 4, 2013, 2:16 pm
    I don't get the big deal of "racist" jokes. I'm pretty sure we all make jokes about dumb people, gay people, menfolk, womenfolk, midgets, etc.

    When I tell a girl to make me a sammich, it doesn't mean I think that's all women are good for. It's just a joke. Just like when women make jokes about guys... Or are we all keeping "sexism" alive too?

    I guess if you do consider it that way, then I'd rather live in a world with racism and sexism instead of us all being completely politically correct and no fun at all.

    I agree but more on the grounds of
    Safety of the carrier: If there becomes complications and the womans life is at threat.
    Accidental pregnancy: Contraceptives are not 100% and if for example you are not ready for a baby financially or otherwise what life would that baby have?
    I'm 38 and earn a decent wage but I can't afford to have another child due to the childcare whilst the wife and I are at work. For just one toddler it is the same price as the mortgage on our house! One of you stay at home I hear you cry - this too is implausible due to the cost of living, what little we have left after childcare, mortgage, gas, electric, water, council tax, diesel, car tax, car insurance, home insurance, buildings insurance, phone/internet, television licence, clothing, laundry, pension, groceries, toiletries, etc etc.. we both NEED to work!

    If you're still with your parents don't move out!!

    If you have moved out and are not ready for a kid - double bag it!

    Feminism is stupid shit. Women get laws so everything is "equal" which is in some form not bad, in Germany for example there are women with the same Jobs as men but get paid alot less. But like a quota is stupid because you cant find for every Job enough women and sometimes you have to take a woman even if she is less qualified than a who is applying for the Job.
    And men dont get anything, ever heard that a woman goes to jail because of sexuell harrassement just because the man said so? No. Men who do Jobs that are "made for women" automatically are gay. There is no man quota. Women get their own parking spaces (in Germany) but men dont. Women get preferred in School, seriously, most female teacher automatically grade them better because Girls are better than Boys (at least they think so) and male teachers think oh she is cute or dont cry honey or anything like that. There are gyms for women only, they get their own Saunas and so on.
    In my gym there was once just one Sauna for everyone now there is one for women only but the other one is still for everyone. So as a man you have to sit naked in front of women if you wanna use the Sauna, as a woman you can choose.

    But as a man, why would you not want to be naked with a bunch of women?
