Chat room quotes Edit

  • So many state funding issues would evaporate with decriminalization of both drugs and sex. rumiboy @ 00:14:55 UTC
  • mmhmm we've decriminalized prostitution here in New Zealand, nothing but good results and workers rights. tamora @ 00:15:46 UTC
  • Personhood will become more important when an entire prosthetic body is develop, as it will be. rumiboy @ 00:21:48
  • What the hell is BALANCE anyway, by who's standards? jefferson50583 @ 00:28:30 UTC
  • Good tip, nick. again, I think all of this manipulation is a crime against a person, depriving them of the right to the luck of the genetic draw. rumiboy @ 00:30:49 UTC
  • You don't need technology to oppress... but you can use technology to eradicate oppression. jefferson50583 @ 00:35:25 UTC
  • This idea of personhood as the standard is very attractive to me. The question should always be, Am I doing harm to another person. rumiboy @ 00:37:01 UTC
  • That's because, until one is "of age", our society wants to brand any sexual behavior as verboten. Siniful @ 00:39:28 UTC
  • The same society that forbids is permeated by sexual pressure on young people to sell products. rumiboy @ 00:40:29 UTC
  • I am and always be skeptic of anyone individual or institution or any "scientific/medical" agenda which determines the specs of normality... jefferson50583 @ 00:43:24
  • From a certain viewpoint, yes.. Though I'm thinking no matter who we put in charge, and I think we do need people in charge to free ourselves up to focus on other things, we'll end up with flaws, people abusing their position, giving in to greed, etc. Squeak @ 00:55:17 UTC
  • MORALITY is a relative value. RIGHTS are not relative. jefferson50583 @ 01:02:29 UTC
  • ANY interference with mind development creates bias, one way or another. Schooling is by far the greatest bias generator humans invented. jefferson50583 @ 01:06:46 UTC
  • Hmm. I figure its up to the individual to be smart enough to not take everything they're taught as god given truth. Perhaps more philosophy should be taught if people go to higher education thinking they shouldn't question what they're taught. Non-questioning sounds very anti higher education. Squeak @ 01:14:35 UTC
  • It wasn't her sexual behavior that was dangerous, it was her problem with truthfulness. rumiboy @ 01:16:30 UTC
  • The mandatory course we have about the philosophy of science was very helpful for putting things into perspective, de-deifying science. Squeak @ 01:16:40 UTC
  • It bothers me to criminalize any sort of sexual behavior between consenting adults... but I think that someone who does engage in potentially fatal disease-spreading bothers me. Siniful @ 01:16:56 UTC
  • Oh, yeah Odysseus, he was so Captain Kirk. rumiboy @ 01:35:17 UTC
  • I think many who are opposed to sex for money, are opposed to sex for pleasure as well. rumiboy @ 01:38:55 UTC
