Spotted girl your nuts. You have no clue what the word Libertarian means. Libertarians don't talk the way you do or have any of the sort of ideas that you have. Your more of a Benevolent Tyrant slant. In all truth your ideas are somewhere between between Marxism and fascism. Your the one who started arguing because. You think people just want to piss and moan and bitch about things but do nothing about them and expect nobody to comment when you say something. Well darlin' that is immoral. Your just another person who blames everyone else for your problems in order to avoid any responsibility or solutions to problems. Your words are vacuous.
I never forced anyone to switch to any browser. It is YOU who feels a need to force their will on others.
You say you said something along the lines of: boys need to have their ego fractured . Well my dear, that shows that you are fairly violent yourself. So violent that you feel the need to destroy someones self esteem and identity who does not goosestep to your beliefs ( Fascist ideology, Libertarians don't think that way). Things that in the same breath you state is a symptom of men. You think that one gender is superior over the other. That is the definition of sexism.
In the words of a great thinker and TRUE Libertarian:
" I do not agree with what you have to say but I will defend to the death your right ti say it."--- Voltaire
Of course I am nuts to argue with fools, and you know nothing about my beliefs, just what I expressed in a few posts about ONE specific issue. On social issues, I'm quite to the right.

You are the one who started arguing. I made a one-off comment as a vent about the browser locking up. It was not a call for help nor advice. Only very evil person give advice when they are not asked for it. But you went on trashing my choices rather than realizing I posted a one-off vent. All you had to say was, "I know," or "I'm sorry," but your masculine need for mastery or to "fix things" kicked in and kept you from being empathetic. Then when I stood up to your ego, you started labeling me.

Again, the point is this. When a person mentions an issue, it is ALWAYS wrong to blame the victim. Giving ANY advice to victims to "prevent a future occurrence" is just more abuse. It is correct to ALWAYS go after the aggressor and NEVER suggest that the victim of whatever do or change anything. Blaming someone for their browser choice is the same as blaming someone for being a crime victim. You either think rape and malware are the victims faults, or you think they are the fault of those who perpetrate such.

As for masculinity, that is immoral and wrong for anyone to have, and loving parents will do what it takes to destroy all that. The first time a son bullies, bosses, attacks for no reason, etc., you apply the "board of education" to the "seat of understanding."

Only MEN (the ones with power and advantage) are capable of being sexists. Anything you think is sexism in woman is only leveling the field and adjusting for past inequities. Any advantage a man has over a woman needs to be destroyed by whatever means possible to promote equality and level the playing field. If women cannot walk down the street without being in fear of men, then maybe men should be made to live in fear of walking the streets alone (and denied to opportunity to gang up on others by making it illegal for men to congregate in public).

If men were so good, there would be no wars, no rape, and no crime, and you wouldn't have to give them pills or beatings (equally effective according to science) to force them to act according to the perfection that is naturally born to girls (until men or society destroy that in them and lower them to the man's level).

<quoted text>Your a mental midget. All human beings regardless of race, culture, or creed are all capable of the same good or evil. I'm sorry your Father hurt you so bad and left you with all these daddy issues.
I never said that was not the case. However, men are born evil (until goodness is beaten into them) and women become evil.
My father didn't hurt me, by the way. What I believe is what I believe. It has nothing to do with me, but what I see as right and wrong for all.

Actually, you are the one with father issues, since you seem to treat others according to what was done to you.

They like to plug Facebook but you don't have to login via it, it's only an option. You can still sign up with your email and then just login with email/password as with Topix.

So your sexist, racist, a confused marxist and fascist who thinks they are a Libertarian. Yep your nuts. Hey spotted girl. Keep using those multiple browsers running at the same time that you admittedly troll topix with to keep those judge marks flowing.
Yep, you have that one pegged all right.
