Sorry but forced marriage? Genital mutilation?


Maybe before you call me names you should learn how to read.

The question was 'arranged' marriage, not 'forced'.

Do we not already have arranged marriages in this country where you don't need to be a Muslim?

Do we not have male genital mutilation in this country (circumcision) where you don't need to be a Muslim?

A simple yes or no will suffice.

She doesn’t sound like she cares about America or Americans. Being draped in the flag of a foreign country while speaking in her primary win says all I need to know about this tool.

Probably because it has been co-opted by a number of alt-Right extremist groups. The neo-Nazis and white supremacists love the Libertarians because they always defend their right to spout hate.


Everyone you disagree with is Alt-Right, so not surprising there.

Forced marriage is arranged, and circumcision has a clear goal, if however misconceived, of hygeine...who even are you today?

I think it is awesome.

We are a nation of diversity and need our government to reflect that diversity. Let all voices be heard.

Maybe you should learn the definition of both of those words because I'm pretty sure they don't mean the same thing.

Are you still not mutilating someone's junk? Yes or no?

Oh I am asolutely certain that I do. Don't misunderstand, there is no difference between arranged and forced where underage children are concerned.

Your second point is just stupid: if you compare the removal of the foreskin to the extraction of the clitoris...just go away.

Except, since you didn't carefully read what I was replying to you'd see there was.

He asked 'what about arranged/underage marriages?', those are two different things, hence the '/' symbol. Arranged isn't forced, which is what I was replying to, additionally plenty of underage marriages happen now because 'religion'. Facts are facts son.

No, you're point is stupid because genitals are genitals and cutting them is cutting them, you know, because 'religion'. You're just more used to one type of mutilation over the other.

Irony is not your strong suit tonight.

Is she for lower taxes, smaller government, term limits?

No.

Then she is a feckless ####.

Why in the hell would she ban knives? I think its great that she is from Palestine and there will be soneone in the US government to call out Israel on their evil crap.

Trivia fact. Most (if not all mammals) start life as female. Human penises are just enlarge clitoris.

Most of the nerve receptors lie within the tips of these tissues Ammirite
.

While circumcision is a hygienic practice, it is at the cost of sensation. Most would argue that's not true, because they have a great time. Most also had the presedure at birth, so they can't compare it. Story's from people coming to America later in life have said they have conformed to that standard to fit in and things just aren't the same afterwards.

It stems from religion as a society norm though. Most hospitals do it as standard operating procedure unless otherwise requested.

Whatever, more power to 'er if that's what the base wants. If the left can't tell the right who to vote for, the road also goes both ways, ya know.

What I don't understand is why do people view Libertarians as alt right extremists? Or am I wrong?

Because people don't know what the frick they're talking about, Libertarians can lean left, right or pull from both sides. For god's sake, I'm Libertarian, I'm not remotely alt-right.

The best way to sum us up collectively is something a late friend of mine one said, "Better at Republican issues than Republicans, better at Democrat issues than Democrats -- not afraid to meet in the middle."

Don't pay much attention to fundie sects in the US, do you? There's plenty of underage Christian marriage examples online, hit up a search engine. It'd do you some good to see the US without the rosy glasses.

Also, Indians do the arranged marriage like nobody's business still. The Indian folks I used to work for, the wife was born here & grew up here (2nd gen Indian American no less) Her hubby was an arranged marriage she went to India to get. As far as I'm concerned, I don't really care who follows what marriage traditions so long as they're not prevented from a legal divorce here.

As far as female circ goes, are you sliced up? Not letting my own personal preference for an aesthetically neater wang cloud this one, think about your outrage for a moment if you're missing some skin below the equator. If you're not willing to go to bat (pun intended) for your own junk, then you don't have a leg (pun also intended) to stand on about the other gender's junk.

There's a difference between removal of a womans junk and a mans junk. The purpose for doing that to a woman in eastern Muslim culture is to stop pleasure being experienced. Its not the same with circumsized males. They still feel pleasure. A removal of foreskin was always for Religious purposes. If your born with it, it probably wasn't meant to be serviced in a chop shop.

That's why I wanted to share my most awkward post ever. I can't speak from experience, but I worked with some people who came over from Brazil. They had it done in their adult life and said things were just never the same.
