Should the Black Lives Matter movement be seen as a Terrorist Organization?

NikoRaviel

I have been seeing a lot of petitions for Congress to see the Black Lives Matter movement as a Terrorist Organization. I personally have no position on the matter but I also found a article stating that Russia is already in movement to put the BLM moment on their "terror list." With the recent violent actions the group has been taking I would be leaning twoard them being seen as a Terrorist Organization What do you think? Should the BLM be seen as a Terrorist Organization?...

Should children be able to withdraw themselves from Religious Education.

IllogicalChickenNugget
TheAardvark

Children should be allowed to make their own choices when regarding religion. They should not be forced to worship and study a god and have beliefs pushed down their throat by schools. Religion is a choice and as humans we have the choice to believe what we want. So if that statement is true, why do MATURE children not have the choice to pick religion. Religion is completely based on faith so why can't children choose not to study religion completely based on no basis at all (like religion is)....

Is rape fantasy linked to rape

angienajel
Oak19

I am obviously against rape fantasy being linked to the act of committing rape. I fantasize about rape play but I will never commit rape or any form of sexual assault, in fact non consensual sex being committed disgusts me. The main reason why I argue against this is because people have all sorts of desires and as you cannot control which gender you fall inlove with you cannot control your deep desires within your conscious or your unconscious. You can control your behaviours/actions but not you...

Black Lives Matter Protest Don't Help

PrettyOnFleek67
AbrahamThurmond

First off let me say this, yes I am black, and I'm young but that doesn't have to do with the fact that I have an opinion. First off doing all of these protest is going to do nothing, and I mean NOTHING. Why do I say this well almost every time a protest happens some more stuff happen and what I mean by that is more people get shot, more people get hurt, and at the end of the day what does protesting do. I mean I know it can help people understand the pain but screaming 'Black Lives Matter' is g...
