Assisted Suicide. So controversial that people don't even want to talk about it.


OoOoO good one! I support it btw, under certain circumstances. Such as someone's body just slowly withering away from cancer or a disease like ALS or something like that. That is just too painful and sad.


Agreed. At least that's the position I have right now. But it gets hazy. For example, if someone is deeply depressed they might be in pain, and yet it seems different from someone suffering from cancer or ALS. It just bothers me to think that someone might be so sad that they believe it is best for them to pass on when there might be a lot of people who would be equally sad to see that person die. That's why it's a complex issue. I do think though that a person who is so debilitated from a disease, to the point where "normal" life is unattainable, should have the right to choose between life or death.

Still a hard thing to think about though.

I definitely see what you mean. However, I don't think I'd ever back assisted suicide for people with depression. Although I can relate since I struggle with bouts of pretty intense anxiety and depression, I still can always find something beautiful about life to live for. I understand people have depression 10x worse than me but I don't think I could ever back assisted suicide for those situations. For other mental illnesses (like schizophrenia etc.) it is a more slippery slope for me. But as for now, people who are just withering away should have that choice. If a dog has the choice (or the owner I should say really) to be put out of its' misery, I think humans should too.

You said it about depression for sure. That's exactly how I feel. People always say "you don't know what it's like to be depressed if you think that suicide for depression is wrong." But to be blunt I think it's outright cowardly and selfish to want to die just because of sadness. I think it's great that I get sad sometimes, even really really sad, because then when I'm happy it seems like I'm on top of the world compared to if I was sad. Basically without sadness there is no happiness.

Abortion and religion for me.

Well for people around me. I'm agnostic which means I get thrown in with the Atheists who get lumped in with the Satanists. It's some really confusing shit. And I'm pro-abortion. We are a crowded species, and I find it funny how religious people want to act like they have a say in this matter when they're always "free-willing" themselves everywhere. There's probably a small fraction of abortions compared to how many humans are pumped out each and every day, so I see no problem with trimming the species. Hell China even has a one child per family rule or something to that effect.

Well according to the religious folks, every word out of my mouth is controversial since I am not a major practitioner of any religion (and of course in my family if it isn't Catholic, it wouldn't count anyway as a religion).

Of course I will say it is fine you like who you like within Politics, and you can follow whatever religion you wish. Just don't try to shove the shit down my throat and then call me a heathen or anarchist just because I don't want to get caught up in the shitstorm those two topics alone cause.

If anything I follow the whole logical and scientific part of life. Cloning, stem cell research, advanced prosthetics, major science stuff that if researched properly would change the face of the world as we knew it. Stuff most religions seem to shun and politics can't openly say they are funding due to not wanting to lose their religious voters (or they openly say they are not funding just so they can get the religious voters).

Equality. Unfortunately. And I don't mean JUST with homosexuality or races... Let's not forget gender equality and transgender equality. Equality for EVERYTHING. Let's just love each other.

Abortion and all forms of suicide is pretty controversial, as well. I am pro-abortion, and I am against suicide but I do not shame people for wanting to commit it.

Gay people hate and their rights. Personally, it's fine if they want to get married because if two people truly love each other regardless of gender than I don't see what's so wrong. But I do have my doubts because two reasons.

1.) Marriage is a privilege, not a right.

2.) Gay marriage may lead to more children being raised in same-sex households, which are not an optimum environment because children need both a mother and father.

As for gay community reviving hate from straight people, this is how I personally see it without bringing religion into this. If you're gay that's honestly fine, but please do not shove your sexuality in my face, do not force your sexuality to straight people, and I beg you please don't prance around and discriminate other gay people with "Oh, I'm gay so I have to act all flamboyant." I understand that it's their personality, but I can assure you that gay people who act masculine do not appreciate it and and rather annoyed.

I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but I had to share my opinion on this controversial issue.
