Good.

We don't need to be going backwards in Equal Rights.

And no ones taking her religion away.


It's called "having your own opinion." But we know by now that many in the left don't believe in this, and those like you would rather FORCE your views on everyone else. Fascist much?

You assert that there are no others at Berkeley that shares her beliefs and values? Fanatics are doing their best to silence her. That's not freedom. That's, somebody help me here, fascist?

Personal beliefs - whether or not they're influenced by religion - have everything to do with politics. Whether you like it or not.

To be fair, she abstained from the vote because it was a conflict with her beliefs but felt like it wasn't in support of the beliefs of the students she represented. I think that's completely fair. These students voted for her to represent them, and she did what she felt was right.

I'm not seeing a problem with her position at all. If the students want to vote her out, then they have every right to do so.

It's not so much religion as it is morality. Do you support immorality?

Annee, you do realise she simply ‘abstained’ don’t you?

Or do you not really know what that means?

One hundred percent if this was a Muslim student abstaining due to religious beliefs then Annee, and every leftist would be in full support of her. She would not be fired or asked to leave.

One hundred percent I’m correct on this.

Is it because liberals are thick? Or is it because Christianity -bad, Islam-good? (Which is also thick)

And before someone jumps in and says “who mentioned Muslims?”, read the OP, the OP asked this very question.

She's representing the people who voted for her to represent them. Typically that'd be because those people agree with her personal beliefs.

Although I fall into the LGBTQ category, I've never considered it part of my identity or supported it as a movement for reasons exactly like this. They aren't about acceptance and haven't been for a long while. Why can't we add an S in there for straight, too? You know... Just be people...

ETA: This is obviously just an attack on Christianity... California doesn't allow that, and it's pretty obvious.


As someone that used to be quite active in the political part of that community I agree.

That's why I left, actually.

It went from "can't we just be treated like any other human being?"

To... "You must agree with us or die!!!"

Went from a basic human rights thing to an excuse to attack anything that doesn't promote the Progressive agenda.

At the end of the day, the narrative should have been "we're all people and it doesn't matter who we like being or sleeping with", not the insanity we have today.

Which is actually a big step back for us... as politicizing the Feminist movement was.

Now it's all about how they can use us as pawns against anything they don't like.

Unless you are LGBT, do us a favor and don't talk for us.

It makes us look stupid and intolerant, you see...

You don't know crap.

My mom was a polio victim in the '51 epidemic. I was 5.

Until the Disability Act was signed -- the disabled were discriminated against.

Denied entrance to businesses. Kicked out of restaurants because another customer felt uncomfortable. Etc, etc, etc.

So, I don't care if she's pink with purple polka dots.

There is no room for discrimination in schools.

I'm genuinely confused as to which part of her actions you think were discriminating. Can you please explain?

It's ok to discriminate against her though, for abstaining to follow the proclamation... gotcha...

So you're all for keeping Jews and Muslims out of government too?
Wasn't America founded on the idea of religious freedom?
I think you're genuinely confused about who is getting discriminated against here.

My God Anne, you've become so predictable and boring.

Trying to equate discrimination of disabled persons with the redefinition of what's been painfully obvious since the beginning of time.

I'd say grow up but you seem to be firmly entrenched in your ways.

All inclusive as long as you follow what we say, endorse what we say, and don't ever speak out against anything the collective says.

Also gawd forbid you do the right thing and not vote against what the collective wants you will be outed and ostracized.
