it's not shallow, it's certainly privileged tho

I don't see privilege there, we choose our friends. If you don't want to be friends with a certain kind of person, that's your call.

i agree w/ choof here. for someone to not be affected by new policies, there's a certain level of stability you must have. politics has had huge effects on my life. granted, i'm privileged in many other ways.

choof is right. Also, responding to sincere beliefs with mockery is typically a trait of people you should distance yourself from. These individuals aren't interested in personal development outside of trying to maintain their fragile sense of self by putting others down.

ye I have certain privileges that make my life better than some other ppl
being aware of that is a pretty good step towards learning compassion and understanding for ppl who don't have the same means as you do

being of a certain status that affords you the ability to ignore or not pay attention to certain or all legs of politics is a form of privilege. altho this might be lost on a pepe posting retard like you, I don't rly expect idiots like you to be mentally capable of empathy

When someone is foolish you should focus on pitying them instead of get angry at them. Also don't call people retards, idiot.

It’s not about offending me, or anyone really. It’s about having a standard of decency. That standard is clearly outlined in the forum rules, as well as the consequences of breaking them. If you don’t want to play by the rules, either post in tgb or face the consequences. It’s really simple stuff.

When it comes to enforcing da rules, I'd like to see myself more of a Jorgen Von Strangle than a lawyer.
