    You can be a ****ing toaster for all I care, just don't expect the masses to throw out societal norms to save your feelings - and certainly don't throw out science to back your personal choice. That's not how freedom works.

    I didn't say that you fool. I put forward the notion that he could be but I don't think he is... another sweets special... changing the posters words. You need everything spelled out for you huh? Sign of a real low IQ.

    James Harden is a basketball god who can do no wrong.

    Also, he is indicating 3 points after scoring a three. He is not some nobody holding it up randomly on camera trying to troll people and get attention.

    I agree with you, but you have to at least consider the possibilty that lady sitting behind that kavanough guy or whatever his name is was seeking attention.

    Seeking attention doesn't make you a troll. That's the problem with the world we live in now... an attention seeker that I disagree with, must have bad intentions, right? SO THEY MUST BE A TROLL.

    I choose to not judge people unless their actions affect me, and someone being stupid on TV doesn't affect me. Politicians like AOC spreading this "racist sign" bullshit does affect me and my country. The spread of hysteria and ignorance is a serious issue.

    We can agree on the first half. But on the second half, again you're assuming. He may be counting the number of strippers he's hiring that night. You never know!

    Seeking attention is a common tendency amongst trolls. But seeking attention to get a reaction (mostly negative) is trollish behavior.

    James harden can be counting the number of strippers he is gonna bang after, he can do no wrong on a basketball court.

    But it isn't exclusive to trolls. Countless people act crazy when they get on TV, just look at timeout breaks at Toyota Center. The difference between you and me, is I don't bother myself with the actions of others unless it affects me. The overly sensitive left seems to wake up every day hoping and even seeking to be offended. If that is the way you choose to live, you can't be surprised when you are offended... and that subjective feeling, is 100% yours and yours alone.

    I dont know who this left is you are referring to. It just seems like a hate term to throw at anyone who disagrees with one or some of your beliefs. Please be specific, there is:

    Republican and democrat
    Conservative and progressive

    Both can have conservative and liberal views.

    If you are gonna label then please clarify which side you have the issue with.

    Now I see exactly why you want people to watch their words as not to offend others. You know what overly sensitive left I am talking about, and most rational people do as well. The crazies calling for safe spaces, and trying to make gender mislabeling a a crime are a bigger threat to our country and our freedom than the Alt Right.

    Why? Because they control our colleges and education system. The Alt-Right are just the KKK and typical hatemongers relabeled. The only people that gives them a platform is the left. Both are an extreme minority of each side of the political aisle, one of them has the backing of colleges and "intellectuals," and one of them has Alex Jones.

    I'm a Libertarian, and voted third party. I call it like I see it. if that offends you, that's on you - not me. To me, 1+1 = 2, and XY and XX are the only sexes. You can call and be whatever you want, I love freedom, but when you try to make others believe what you do, when it goes against societal norms and facts - then we have a problem.

    I am confused when you say terms like left, be specific who you have a problem with. Is it liberals? Is it conservatives? Is it Republicans? Is it Democrats? Or is it progressives?

    I'm confused how this can confuse you. The left is clearly defined throughout American history.

    So you have an issue with a broad range of individuals and groups that want changes. The group who got us labor rights, civil rights, and reviews capitalism to make sure they get a piece of the pie for their labor.

    That is a lot of beliefs to be against.

    So you think women should not be allowed to have abortions?

    I didn't say that I was against all of their beliefs, I mentioned one... and again, you assumed I meant all. You sure do assume a lot.

    I used "the overly sensitive left" to define a set of people, and I then explicitly said what my problem was with them. Why you think there was room for interpretation in a direct statement is beyond me. My exact quote:

    Nowhere, do I mention anything about them or their beliefs outside of those who are overly sensitive. Again, you're looking for a reason to be offended - I didn't say anything like you alluded to me saying.

    How can you define an entire set of people, but agree with many of their views? I’m confused.

    So you have some views that are considered left because they are liberal or progressive, correct? Please tell me which left views you are most against.

    You are assuming I am offended.

    Again, you're spelling out your own problems, without truly understanding that the answer to all of your questions is right in front of you. I can and do respect Liberals. I can and do respect many of their policies. I can and do, respect the fact that they think what they are doing is the right thing to do. It's called empathy, and you should learn and practice it.

    With that said, I call a turd a turd... I'm a registered Republican and voted Gary Johnson. My criticisms aren't only for those on the left.
