    I just had a discussion on this topic, and thought it could make an interesting thread:

    Why are libs always fighting against any type of social/sexual standards, and always fighting for killing the unborn and the terminally ill? You can bet money which side of these issues a lib will come down on. Is it merely the leftovers of 60's anti-establishment philosophies; an immature bucking against authority ("Don't tell me what to do!")? Or is there something else at work here?

    Liberals fight for all kinds of social/sexual standards, like calling women Ms., that women should be able to say "no" even after the sex act has commenced, that women can choose abortion without a man's consent, but if the woman doesn't use birth control it's the man's responsibility to pay for the child. And so on.

    "don't tell me what to do" explains it pretty well I think however they are very fond of telling others what to do. For instance "save the whales" translates into "YOU go save the whales". I'm too busy having fun.

    Do you think the whales should be destroyed, Captain Dilhab?

    Do you purposely just miss the point or are you just slow?

    I believe your point was that liberals want to tell other people what to do, but not actually do it themselves because they are too busy being decadent. Is that a fair appraisal?

    So do you want to kill the whales?

    That's pufferfish (blowfish). I've had that many times.

    Puffin is a sea bird.
