All you can say in this site's defence is that it, rather than reality, occupies the warped minds of some of the planet's most twisted people; gods know what they would get up to if it wasn't here. In these arguably insane times, any lessening or attenuation of madness is maybe something to be thankful for.

Hm, that was odd.
Just had a meeting with my department head. We have a deep-seated, finely tuned mutual loathing for each other, though because I am a gentleman (and because he is a spineless sack of shit) it's all done via nice smiles, compliments and completely fucking up each other's paperwork. The meeting was meant to be a informal "catch-up", allowing concerns (from me) to be aired, questions asked etc.
So I didn't exactly go in with high expectations.
And while I'm not counting my chickens before they hatch, it does seem my repeated emails about the stupidity of the "Prevent" counter-terrorism program material has finally sunk in, and he's willing to do something about it (namely, have me provide the materials and training instead. +1 to counter-terrorism consultant CV building). And beyond that, he also seems to share my concerns that Brexit is probably going to tank the whole company if we don't play it smart, and was apparently sufficiently impressed with my off-the-cuff spiel on the issue to want to bring it up with the Principal and even central management. This may get me in with the lobbying team and allow me to network with the Mayoral office as well (given the Mayor's stated opinion on Brexit).
Now this could be a convoluted way of either getting me to shut up or go away, but he's had no problems in the past telling me to do just that. Plus some of the names he mentioned in regards to the company suggested he was taking this seriously for once (and maybe saw the potential career benefits of using company resources effectively). So I'm cautiously positive about this.
He also appears to be gunning for my immediate manager right now, and presumably wants to butter me up so I can deliver some goods on him. I don't really care for their pissing match, but I'll work the conflict to my benefit if I can.
\But when you subject yourself to long periods of time of hurtful, abusive sexual violence, you become desensitized, or you become attracted to such things. And when you do that, you start to become a bad fucking person.
This is an appeal to disgust and guilt, as well as a non-sequitur as I do not recall us discussing sexual violence, just pornography and zoophiloa and farm porn.Appeal to emotion and appeal to consequences
It's illogical to do something that makes you hurt and or die because you're afraid.
It may be dangerous and therefore illogical but that doesn't make it wrong. For example, Is being a volunteer firefighter morally wrong? It's illogical. You're exposing yourself to danger and not getting paid fot it
Last I checked, rape is sexual violence.
I don't recall rape being mentioned in the conversation
So you don't see sex with non-consenting animals as rape. Good to know.
What if the animal clearly wants it
QuoteBut, considering the legacy of Discordians, I thought the point of a discordian forum was to consider many types of view points rather than seek the "correct" or "ethical" answer.
There is just so much wrong here, and every time I see this sentence it makes me wanna scream and headbutt someone to death.
you're right! I really shouldn't be defending my position based on an arbitrary assumption I have about "Discordianism"
I have returned with a gift:
