No, I am against it.
Real Estate, housing and rent would get too discusting. Local people are going to get even more displaced than before erasing local populations.
Plus, you can't never trust Germany, instead of tanks it is banks
EtcetEraThreadJoe Biden's new ad is problematic when it comes to how it talks about China [See Staff Post]
ReasonUser banned (1 week): Inflammatory false equivalencies on the topic of xenophobia
The problematic take is that we can no longer critique China on Uighur Labour Camps, suppression in Tibet, clampdown on Hong Kong, expansion in Africa before being careful with our language.I speak French and Portuguese also.
Same applies from English to French and Portuguese.
In French (Canadian Press and French Press) uses the same terminology as in English when journslistically talking about a foreign government = they name the Country because the Country by name is the government.
In French "La Chine" means "China" and in context of newspaper headlines it does mean the Government

ReasonUser Banned (1 month): sexist accusations, history of similar behavior
is she that type of girl who would get pregnant on purpose to hook a marriage?
because the way her mother talks about marriage, leads me to believe that this "unplanned" pregnancy might as have been part of her "plan" all along
EtcetEraThreadOld homophobic Kevin Hart comments surfaced (update: Oscars request apology, Kevin declines)
ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Rationalizing and making excuses for homophobia over a series of posts
what I mean is that stuff said pre-2012 area shouldn't be used to slam someone in 2018.
yeah, it is highly insensitive what Hart said but many men grow up with a certain level machismo pressure that takes a couple of years to get ironed out with growing progressive changes.
it's not like a light switch that automatically years of macho upbringing gets erased.
I went to high school in the early 1990s, only when I started my career in my late 20s did I start getting progressive about same sex marriage
Being a hetero male kid in the 1980s and 1990s, the shit that we hear in the school yard and the macho peer pressure insitiled on kids. That stuff doesn't go away quick, it takes time and teaching to iron that out.
