For years the left and feminists have remarked that silence is not consent. A girl gets naked in front of you, licks her lips, and waggles her finger in a "come hither" fashion, but does not say anything, is not consent to be with her. Yet somehow these same activists are now claiming that silence on BLM, political protests, and other social issues is complicit and consent to the so called "social injustices" of the world. This dichotomy for a lack of spoken words is something that would seem unsustainable in any logical rational.
I'm not sure if I'm saying this as a reminder that the left isn't rational, or that the rules they make are all subjective and poised to change at a moment's notice, but I felt it had to be said. We live in dangerous times. Think calmly, think rationally, and know the type of person you're dealing with. Anyone have thoughts?
Facebook has upheld Donald Trump’s suspension but will revisit the decision in six months. (Ridiculous for many reasons including that more coordination for January 6th happened on Facebook than anywhere else...including Parler.)
Curious if you guys are even on Facebook anymore. I see lots of messages from people who have deleted it or just don’t use it. Are there any features that you miss which we should incorporate here on Locals?
A big welcome to all the new folks who joined the community today! (And yes I’ll be signing those cards and mailing them out to you ASAP!)
While we do plenty of politics and culture around here it’s also a lot of pet and food pics. And since we have so many new members today it seems like a good time to start a pet pic thread. Here’s Clyde...now everyone introduce your furry friends!
