    Child Genital Mutilation

    Are you assuming that examinations are less embarrassing for boys? Also, did you just assume my gender?

    White supremacist attack in NZ

    Alright, let me just summarize the usual reaction on this forum on such topics: - motives are not known yet, don't speculate - it was probably an act of mentally unstable individuals - nothing to do with religion - we must not be paralysed by fear, we will continue to live the life that we want: free, together, and open

    I don't have to imagine it, I've experienced such examination. Doctors/nurses are trained to perform the investigation sensitively.

    It seems that she's the one to blame. Anyway, problems are solving by themselves.

    What is equality to you?

    Yes, I agree. Advantage is a relative term and I wouldn't object using it. But as I said, I dislike privilege because it implies special treatment (which is not there). Perhaps I'm just being silly and focusing on problems of semantics but it seems that using the word privilege creates wrong implications in understanding the issues.

    Sure, my reply was also supposed to be general. I simply don't think that we should project disadvantages/handicaps of individuals as privilege of others.

    What is equality to you?

    Nope. I'd see that I have a handicap (at most).

    Is Comic Relief racist?

    As you do too, in fact.

    I also have an issue with "privilege" label. I wouldn't say I'm offended, I just don't think the term is used correctly. You see, when I hear "privilege" I imagine some granted special status. I believe that's the definition right? I accept that some of these "privileges" might be somehow granted. But special? No. They're normal. Being born in UK, to average family, being healthy and having education - that's all normal, not special. Not being discriminated also isn't special. Of course, some of us are not lucky enough to have that - that's sad disadvantage, we should address it and help as possible. But not by throwing obstacles at all the other people.

    Tommy Robinson thread - All discussion here.

    There is no proof that preachers incite violence. But you and I both know they know their followers would act as they do and the kind of abuse and threats they'd make. Trying to pretend they don't know what they're doing really doesn't wash.

    I meant specifically about incitement to violence towards that rape-crisis center and fitness instructor. (Regarding those tweets, I see mostly jokes, few personal attacks and few valid points).

    What is equality to you?

    Sure, but this still doesn't back up existence of white privilege, does it? I'm pretty sure that 1 % is pretty diverse and independent on skin colour.

    Proof? And you still couldn't articulate that reason.

    Tommy Robinson thread - All discussion here.

    As I've said - any preacher. Tommy Robinson shared a pamphlet. Nothing more. Just like any preacher shares a verse from Quran. Both can be (and has previously been) misinterpreted. If Tommy is called a hate speaker for this single act, then all preachers can be called hate speakers.
