I said nothing in the Drugs thread about being pro-Drugs. In fact I said I’d never so much as smoked a cigarette.

I never said you did. You’ll have to go back and read again.

Your friend created a thread advocating drug use, on a Star Wars forum, that you know, might not be a good idea for this place. I know I wouldn’t want my kids coming on here to read about Star Wars, and then stumbling into a thread where a few morons are telling people to use drugs.

Yeah, you’re a real saint. Thank God you’re here to protect the children.

our discussion

This is important to call out because nobody has discussions with you. They see you say something that is totally full of shit, and they comment on it. After this, you respond with an endless stream of uninformed nonsense until everyone loses whatever tiny smidgeon of interest they had in the first place. That’s hardly a discussion.

This is the problem, you expect everybody to stop voicing their irritation when you refuse to stop doing what irritates everybody. Not only that, but every single one of the comments that you’re mad about are in response to your posts. Nobody brings up your victim complex unless you play the victim.

I just want to point out that your posts are almost unanimously ****, but nobody points it out probably because nobody cares.

I know, but that’s still a step above your posts, which are always shit.

Right. He’s the type of villain that you just want to see die and never have to look at again. That doesn’t mean that he’s poorly written necessarily, and that can be an effective villain in certain films, but generally not light-hearted adventure films like Star Wars.

Oh my god I agree with Ryan over mfm. What is even happening right now?

I don’t know. A few months ago you’d probably be shocked to agree with me over anyone else 😉

My problem with Kylo Ren was just that he was too unlikable. I know he’s a villain and I get that we’re not supposed to root for them, but I didn’t get what his problem was and the emulation of Vader seemed a bit weak to me. Keep in mind, even though I dislike TFA, I’ve always defended the cast and characters for the most part, so I still think he’s probably more mediocre than actually bad.

Yeah, I know way more about the plight of drug users than you do, and this thread isn’t inciting lawless action.

When I see stupid stuff, I can’t help but call it out. It’s a curse.

let alone one that is visited by underage kids, unless you and the OP are trying to get this place shut down, of course.

Why would that get this place “shut down”? Have you ever heard of the First Amendment?

Yes clearly him calling you on your bullshit is a worse problem than your constant bullshit itself.

I will ask you the same thing. Please stop. I should only have to ask once.

Thank you.

Hey this the bitchin’ thread son!
You don’t like th’bitchin’, then git t’steppin’!

You’re not helping any.

If you’ll quit with the whiny everybody bullies me act I’d be more than happy to.

I asked you once. I’m cool with you, I want to stay that way. This is a “end of my patience” courtesy … please stop.

I don’t even know why I bother calling you out on this nonsense. I really hoped that your ban would get you to stop this, but I guess it didn’t.

Again, let me point out to you, I am not the “only” one in the conversation. If you want to complain then complain about all of us, the fact that you chose one person only, says more about you than it does your “issue”.

You’re the only person to do this shit so obviously you’re the only one I’m complaining about. At this point I’m just going to try to ignore it, but I doubt I’ll be too successful.

I wouldn’t know because I’ve never read one of his posts. I noticed that he has stopped with the stupid formatting, but I still just scroll past them.

Great post. If someone gave me a magic wand and said I could “cure” my daughter today, I wouldn’t do it, because she’d no longer be the girl I love, she’d be someone different.

I see multiple problems with that approach. One is, should you have the right decide she shouldn’t have “the cure” if one existed? What if she would want to be cured? Another is, why wouldn’t she be the girl you love? I mean, you don’t love her just because she has autism right? If she had never had autism, you still would have loved her, right? Also how would she be someone different? She would just be your daughter without autism. Your daughter is defined by more than just autism. She a person and would still be that same person if her autism were cured. If your daughter had cancer and that got cured, would she be someone different after she was cured? Myself, if I had kid with autism and there was a cure, I’d want him/her to have it(but I will not be so arrogant to deny the possibility that my opinion would be altered if I actually had a child with autism). Why would I want to deny him/her the opportunity live free of autism, to be free of all of its problems?

Call me stupid, clueless, bigoted or whatever, but I don’t get it.

edit: I really hope I haven’t offended by any of what I said in this post, because that wasn’t my intent. Keep in mind that I have no family members with autism. I don’t know anyone that does. So if I have offended, it is because of my own ignorance of the issues.

I’m not offended, they are fair questions.

Cancer does not fundamentally change your brain the way autism does. My daughter has challenges that neurotypicals do not,

neurotypicals? You mean people without autism?

Yes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurotypical

Another way to look at is this - if I could go back and have my first daughter not be stillborn, would I? I don’t know, because it would change the course of our history. Our second child might have been a boy instead of a girl. We might have only had one child, and almost certainly wouldn’t have had three…so our younger daughter would basically cease to exist. “Curing” my daughter’s autism would essentially erase her from this world, replaced by a different girl.

Here we are talking about the problems of altering history as opposed to the issues of curing something. I’d love to go back in time and break my father’s fall so he’d still be with us, but I don’t think I should be allowed to mess with history like that.

My point is that simply “curing” an autistic person would not just be a simple do-it-and-it’s-over thing (assuming a cure existed) and that it has ripple effects, and rather large ones at that. Choosing to go back and have my first daughter survive would change everything that came after it, and so would “curing” my autistic daughter.

Lastly, the argument that she should be the one to have the choice is a compelling one, however I don’t think she is old enough to make that choice (if the choice were available to us). If we were given a magic wand and were told we could choose to wave it any time in the next ten years, I might feel differently ten years down the road.

But here is the problem. If I am understanding autism at all, in order to truly cure iy, it would have to be done sometime early in brain development, way before she was 18 and could decide for herself. This brings up yet another issue. Are people with autism capable of making their own decisions? We are talking about a problem with the mind here. What if “curing” your daughter were the only way to bring her to a state of mind where she could make her own decisions?

My daughter has Asperger’s and is high functioning. She can make decisions already, but at her age I wouldn’t want her making lots of unimportant non-Asperger’s related decisions just because of her age (like if she should watch 14 hours of tv today). My statement was more in relation to the fact that she’s too young to be making certain decisions, independent of her neuro condition.

understood, but as I said before, if I understand things correctly. The only time would be possible to truly “cure” autism is at a time before brain development. This would be way before she could make her own decisions you would have to decide one way or the other. Also this would be before you even knew of any ripple effects.

Consider a story: a man was in a car with his sister. A horrible car accident occurs. The sister is killed. The man is seriously injured. He is brought to a hospital. While there, he meets a nurse and falls in love with her and they eventually marry and have kids. One of this kids grows up and finds the cure for cancer. Now it can argued that that accident had ripples and without the ripples with children would not have been born and cancer would not have been cured. Still, you would not tell someone driving with their not try to avoid a car accident if they could, would you?

We aren’t talking about this, at least I’m not. I’m talking about waving a magic wand and “curing” my daughter’s autism. So I would know the person she used to be and the person she became, and I would fear the consequences.

I guess it is more complicated than I originally realized. Still, what if I were to go back in time to a point before your daughter’s brain developed. What if I were to tell the Frink of that time that his daughter had autism and gave him a magic wand to cure it. What would he say?

I’m not even a parent and I know that that is a ridiculous hypothetical question to ask a parent to answer. It’s like I said earlier, maybe someday they’ll figure out enough about the causes to determine how to prevent it from happening, but “curing” autism isn’t even a possibility.
