Will someone please tell me why a BMW 328 with the 230hp engine gets 28mpg but the heavier, larger, less aerodynamic 528 model with 240hp gets 32mpg?

1) If you think that's where "homophobia" came from, you are mistaken. The root of that "homophile" is akin to the Gay Movement of the 50's, homophile was the name of the movement. "Homophobia" came from those men that were straight that had a fear they were perceived as gay. It isn't a fear of BEING gay or a fear of gay people, but rather a fear of being perceived as gay. Or you can use the psychologist's own definition of the word since he made it.


Was it effective and useful a change? Well it wasn't a change. The phrase "homophobia" or "homophobic" wasn't even defined until the late 60's, early 70's, so technically it has never changed.


2) And what differences are being promoted exactly at a gay pride or parade event? And why are they irrelevant? The purpose of the parades is to show people that sexual orientation SHOULD be irrelevant in society. It is to give visibility to onlookers that lots of people are different in lots of ways and that we should still all be equal, even if we are all so different with walks of life, etc. That's why I support a straight parade or white parade if there is no hate speech and all of the messages are positive, like they are in a gay parade event. There is never any talk about "breeders" and no one is excluded from a gay pride event. Quite honestly there are the PFLAG and Gay-Straight Alliance organizations marching in the parade to promote equality and unity between people of different walks of life.

1) Of course I don't think that's where it came from. There was a different word in the 19th century that was used as a root but I cant remember what it was. Either way, the 'gay' community uses it to describe an entire range of behaviour when it suits them. It is the catch-all term for everything from violence to apathy (in relation to homosexuals). It is a powerful propaganda instrument, of course the downside is that it is being 'used up' to the point of cheapening it where it means nothing (much like playing the race card).

2) Whatever you want to call it, promoting, illustrating, celebrating, is an active display of the differences between people. Equality is tantamount to apathy about the irrelevant differences between people. It's not a great motivational message but it's true.

I disagree about gay pride parades being positive for everyone. Maybe some of them, it's not impossible but all the ones I've ever seen are high on shock factor and/or full of vitriolic 'speech.' I don't really care about gay issues, live and let live, but these events piss me off to no end. Especially on campus ones.

I work at a university sometimes (seasonally).

seriously though, campuses are the BEST place for things like that to happen. that's where people are supposed to be encouraged to express their beliefs, stand up for them and challenge convention. college activism is a good thing

Mostly it's a conduit for the faculty to leverage their own political beliefs (not universal, but common). If you think it's anything else you are entirely too optimistic.

It's not the best place simply from a safety perspective. This is going to sound stupid but: stuff gets crazy fast. Not many people think 'oh hey we'll light a building on fire and trash parked cars' when they are at home.

You just contradicted yourself three times. It's mostly but it's common. It's not universal but if I think it's anything else...

You are incorrect. The faculty leveraging their own political beliefs is certainly a key component but that is also a good thing. Academia should do such things.

People doing that are retarded in the first place. That is not mutually inclusive with social activism.

Yeah Im trying to cook and I keep forgetting what I'm writing. You got the gist of it though.

You said 'encouraged to express their beliefs, stand up for them,' I fail to see how faculty agendas (and the corresponding suppression of their opposition) encourage people to form their own beliefs except in relief. Then you are assuming that people will actually be self critical which is probably the least likely course of human thought.

That is inclusive of typical college activism. Especially when it's encouraged or at least tolerated by the administration. Trashing the ROTC building during 'peace marches' comes to mind.

ETA: I should say 'encouraged by tolerance,' is more applicable.

the fact that in some cases faculty has its influence on student activism it doesn't change the fact that a lot of it is through the actions and beliefs of the students. you cannot pretend that every or even a majority or hell, even a significant portion, of student activism is merely the faculty's doing.

I said mutually inclusive, which means that one requires the other to exist. It happens but it's not representative of student activism.

Dude, cmon. I can say that at most universities official student organizations require faculty sponsorship. Is pointless technicality. If you just don't believe it you can pull tons of stuff off google:

http://michellemalkin.com/2006/04/27/an-attack-on-the-rotc/
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124000847769030489.html

(neither of these are where I work, just similar)

first of all, michelle malkin? :lol: again, that shit is not representative of student activism. the overwhelming majority happens without incident

second, faculty sponsorship does NOT equate to the faculty member choosing the course of the activism
