Question Forum: Try to answer at least 5 of the following with explanations as to why you have chosen that viewpoint... Convince me.
1) Abortion: pro-choice or pro-life? (legally and personally)
legally and personally i believe women should have the right to choose for themselves. the government should not have a voice in what we do with our bodies male or female. they can't ban masturbation either. seriously, i'm a male and i'll never be in the situation where i'd have to choose. i will never know how that must feel or what a woman goes through, so i cannot say yes or no to this at all. there are other options available, but it's not for me to decide.
2) Gay marriages:
the gay marriage thing has gotten way out of hand. seriously. i do think gays should be allowed to marry. it just shouldn't be a big deal. i don't think it'll hurt anything if they can, and it might simplify some of the other questions urrounding gay rights.
3) Racial profiling: help or hindrance?
racial profiling is not very nice. has it been helpful? i don't know at all.
4) The War on Terror:
how can you fight a war against something like that. it's a bit of a broad topic. and it's like everywhere. there is terror here, terror over there. where is it? how do we fight it? how about we all take a deep breath?
5) War in general:
WAR. huh. what is good for? absolutely nothing! say it again.
6) Anybody like the Sopranos? favorite character/episode? this one's for breakermorant and does not necessarily reflect the views of the community as A-hole.
i have never seen one episode, have i?
7) The Lakers:(Specifically Shaq or Kobe) What about the Yankees?(specifically A-rod or Jeter)
shaq does commercials, but i don't know which ones. he's done movies too.
kobe got himself into some trouble. we'll see how that goes. he didn't video tape it, did he? you never video tape these things.
8) Previous two questions: stupid or significant?
well, personally, i don't find them to be very significant, but i wouldn't go as far as stupid.
9) If you HAD to fuck an animal, what animal would you choose?
probably something friendly and slow and big like a hippo.
10) The Death Penalty: for or against?
i am against killing criminals, but i am pro-choice. how does that work? well, it just does.
ani said something along the lines of, "how can you judge someone based on the lowest moment in their life?"
11) Drugs? Legitimacy of legalities, penalties, dangers, etc. go to town with it.
there was this great thing i had to read once for comp 1301 and it was all about how all drugs should be legalize and sold in stores with warning labels saying exactly what they do to you start to finish. the article said that reasonably....well, reasonable people....would not do things to harm themselves and would stay away from the really bad stuff. something like that. i don't know. personally, i don't care for drugs at all. i could do without them altogether. yeah, ban drugs. and guns while you're at it.
Before you go...
