the internet providers have the tech to deal with hater posts and false news and they do nothing; then deny responsibility for what is done by users.

The day we start allowing these providers cut posters off for what they determine to be hate speech, is the day we can bury freedom of speech.
Just because someone has a different opinion or point of view, does not automatically makes it hate speech.

+6 Speed using phrases like “insert demographic” should be killed is actually criminal speech and not covered by the freedom provisions. speech that is harmful to people does not deserve a benefit of defense when it is in the list of things we are not supposed to forget to not do: genocides. not being allowed to oppress or control unrelated people is not taking rights away, but granting them for people to self manage.

+Nina Tryggvason other than middle eastern or muslim terror groups, who do not fall under the jurisprudence of the US Constitution nor recognize freedom if speach as a tradition, I cannot think of any.
 I asked for specifics because anything politically to the right of Jane Fonda is now considered extremist.

The bottom line is that without government stepping in with their own police forces, like blasphemy laws in Pakistan, media companies must rely on AI and user generated reporting systems. When those systems are used they end up doing more harm then good.

In short, the medicine is worse than the disease.

The Same is Equal, Not Special

October 1, 1989…Denmark introduced what they called registered partnership, the world’s first, legal, modern, same-sex civil union.
marriage is not just a word for a state of couplehood, there are contractual rights and responsibilities
and “civil union” and “domestic partnerships” were the special rights that were not like British Common law marriage or formal marriage; it was a separate and different and lesser status
2017

A rule that says “no bias” does not have exemptions and is not how law actually works: letters have spirit and intention

“Two men have become the first gay couple to marry in Germany, on the day gay marriage became legal there.

Karl Kreile and Bodo Mende, a couple for 38 years, exchanged their vows at the town hall in Schöneberg, Berlin.

Registry offices in several German cities were opening, unusually, on Sunday [1 October] to allow couples to wed on the first day it was legally possible.”

When the Right to Rights Is Wronged

religion invented polygamy

and opposes equality for queers in couples, which does not change marriage, as it remains 2 people exclusive of others

and does not alter inheritance, divorce or employment benefits or any contract law

as polygamy would

+Matt inLancaster the majority can’ be trusted, it’s why minority rights are supposed to exist and when are the 1950s and 1970s over for women? the 1960s for nonwhites and the 1980s for queers… we keep telling the children to not bully, and then they see how we allow politicians to behave.

+Nina Tryggvason They see how this particular group of politicians behaves. The previous eight years featured a class act in the White House.

Well said. Some people simply don’t understand why these athletes are risking their reputations and running the risk of losing millions of dollars to raise awareness of the inequalities racism, discrimination and prejudice that permeates the USA supposedly of the most civilised,wealthiest and powerful country in the world. This is why personally I find Donald Trump’s stance on this issue so obnoxious ignorant and utterly despicable.

Elevator 8: The Heart Story

Today on the elevator at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC

I got on with 2 nurses, each to a corner.

The next floor; 3 more women got on, and two of them had a cart with educational displays. One of the items was a model of a human heart.

So, after looking at it for a long while,  I said to the 5 women in hospital garb and badges naming their professions

“It’s funny that the heart looks like that, but we keep drawing women’s asses.”

they all laughed

TV commercial complaint

Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications … – CRTC

 

Dear CRTC

 

I am writing to complain about a tv commerical currently airing on Global Television in British Columbia and likely across the country.

 

It’s the Viagra commercial where a man at the pharmacy counters asks chirpily for brand rather than generic and then proceeds to repeat the word Viagra to the woman and male customer behind him.

This commerical raises several issues of medical access and brand vs generic across the spectrum of medicines – and in the era of medical and recreational marijuana – raises the issue of what is medication being used in an obvious recreational fashion.

Pharmacy counters are about privacy and the character in the tv commerical’s conduct is firmly in sexual harassment domain, one’s penis is never polite company conversation.

In public, that is just short of actually flashing other people, and in the workplace, would be subject to workplace grievances.

Of course, it is just a tv commercial, but I really have to wonder, do men really want to be viewed as being unable to mature beyond the toddler toilet training phase of social development?
