My Opinions

This is a post inspierd by this post ( ) I found whilst wondering through old posts on The Walrus Room. These are just my opinions, I'm not trying to force them on anyone, if anyone has a massive disagreement to anything I say and they keep there argument mature I will be happy to consider there opinions and possibly change my own.

  • Humans look at people and judge. People get to know people despite these differences. 
  • I don't see the point of vegetarianism, some animals eat other animals, it's not like it's exclusive to humans. However, if you don't want to eat meat, that's your choice. 
  • That said, I think that we should eat more of the animals than we do. Why is it ok to eat leg, but not liver? (That said, I really don't like the taste of liver. But at least I tried it :) )
  • The Rights of The Child are incomplete, because they do not mention a child's right to not be discriminated against for liking someone of the same sex/both sexes. 
  • Marriage should be available to everyone
  • You should practice what you preach
  • The teacher isn't always right
  • School uniform is pointless, everyone has the right to their own individuality. 
  • Everyone has the right to do as they wish, as long as they are not hurting themselves or others 
  • People who rape should serve life sentences.
  • A subculture is something to enjoy being part of, not a set of rules to run your life by
  • You shouldn't be constantly rude to people, then complain that no-one likes you
  • Virginity is overrated. If you love him/her, and you both want to do it, do it. 
  • Dress as you want, not as others want you to. 
  • If you know you look good, you'll look good.
As I said before, I'd be happy to hear any differing opinions and the reasoning behind them, as long as you keep your argument mature :)

P.S My new favorite Dr. Who quote: There's something that doesn't quite make sense, something that doesn't add up...lets go and poke it with a stick.

I think that people really need to remember the last several more often.

The point about veg is that the way we raise animals for food (not just meat, but eggs and dairy, too) is inhumane, unnecessary, and disgusting. You shouldn't support it. THAT is the reason for it. Also, some animals are herbivores.

*Marriage* should be available to everyone. Calling it gay marriage is exclusive, too, because not everyone is male or female. Some people are outside the gender binary, and should have just as much right to marry.

I think that the point of uniforms is to cut down on distractions and bullying, not individuality.

People who rape should actually be punished for it, yes, but life is a long time and a *bit* excessive.

I understand what you mean about the point of being a vegetarian and, although my family always eat organic meat, there's not really a foolproof way of making sure your meat lived well. I don't think I worded that statement well, and my opinion is slightly tilted to the pro-meat side by the fact that since my sister became vegetarian I've mostly lost all meat in my meals. I'll edit that statement, along with the marriage one, now.

You make a good point about uniform, but I still completely disagree with it. I have yet to see it working on stopping bullying.

And I believe firmly those who rape should serve life punishments, because, at best on a very fundamental level, they ruin a person for life. I'm not saying that victims of rape can't live properly because of the horror they were put though, but it'll always be at the back of their mind, jumping out at them when they least expect it.
