What it says on the tin ^

I am personally most passionate about abortion, it's a truly awful thing and it is even worse that so many people don't realise it!

How about you?

I think most DDOers know that because of the sheer number of abortion debates, lol. Your debates actually played a role in swaying me to the pro-life stance.

Environmental protection. It was the issue I was most passionate about when I joined DDO (as you can tell from my avatar, which hasn't changed since 2012).

I am also very concerned about the injustices which developing nations face, such as those coming from the notorious TRIPS agreement.

It means a lot to hear you say that, often I feel as if I don't make any impact on people even when you're passionate on the issue :)

What sort of environmental protection? As in localised, clean, litter-free communities or on a a more global scale regarding ice caps and the ozone later?

Both. I think they're not only compatible, but also mutually beneficial. I'm all for a cyclic economy, but the huge global issues with far-reaching impacts must not be ignored, either.

Though I'd remind you, I'm not really concerned about the ozone layer any more. You haven't heard much of it in the last decade or so because we're on the way to fixing it, thanks to the Montreal Protocol. Global warming is a far greater concern.

I am also very concerned about the injustices which developing nations face, such as those coming from the notorious TRIPS agreement.

1. Freedom of Information, Speech & Expression
2. Right to Education (more of a first world issue)
3. Abortion/Stem Cell Research/Embryo Research (they all have the same problems in statute, I am Pro on these of course)
4. Cultural Integration of Immigrants (the social divisions created in multiculturalism is seriously stressing the existing occupants).
5. Pretty much anything science related

Racism. People on DDO (generally speaking) are pretty bad on critical race theory/philosophy of race. Like terribad.

I feel passionately that people should not eat cake and ice cream together on a plate with a fork. Cake should be eaten on a plate or saucer with a fork; ice cream should be eaten in a bowl or out of a carton with a spoon. The only exception is brownie a la mode, but a brownie isn't really a cake, so this isn't really an exception.

4. Proper glassware and dining etiquette.
5. Geopolitics in general.

Censorship. Its a topic I really want to debate. What I mean by "censorship" is the censoring of subjects like pornography, gore, and language from the internet, movies, television, etc.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

I am really passionate about gay rights which most people would say it's obvious because I am not heterosexual, but I am extremely passionate because all the arguments against it is either really rude and disregarding of facts or doesn't make too much sense, in my opinion.

I am also passionate about any form of equality because of course everyone deserves equality, and I also am passionate about environmental topics and animal rights and just a lot of things really.

I assume you are referring to Political Issues?

Well...first the ones I could not care less about. Oh, I have my opinions--they are in my Bio--but it would not anger me if my stances were voted down once and for all on these....

Abortion

Death Penalty

Education Funding

Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

Gay Marriage.

My MAIN beef is with the absurd proliferation of the Entitlement State in America, since Barrack Hussein has been POTUS.

The Nanny State; Trying to Legislate Morality; Entitlement. People getting monthly checks for being dim; lazy, and obese. Most of them with substance abuse issues. I see this in the VA as well, where I am employed.

Those are MY Issues.
