EtcetEraThread Two people killed in fiery Tesla crash with no one driving
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Hostility; Prior Ban for Hostility
it actually doesn't "immediately follow" at all consider this entirely hypothetical example I've made to disprove you, with very simple and pleasantly round numbers - we'll assume self-driving usage rate of 50%: 50/10000 non-self-driving cars have a fatal accident in a given number of miles 5/10000 non-self-driven teslas have a fatal accident in half the given number of miles 40/10000 self-driven teslas have a fatal accident in half the given number of miles (you can assume they're the same teslas if you want, it makes no difference really) the end result is that teslas are more safe (45/10000 vs. 50/10000 over the same number of miles) but automated driving is less safe (80/10000 vs 50/10000 over the same number of miles) obviously with more realistic numbers the margins are different, but it doesn't "immediately follow" in any kind of way. in order to make it "immediately follow" you have to assume that the underlying driven-tesla vs driven-non-tesla fatality rates are the same, but you haven't really shown that? in fact, we have a lot of reason to believe they wouldn't be, in that teslas are generally newer, driven by people in (), and driven in urban areas or on highways (). musk himself loves to talk about how safe his car is! it's possible that the underlying rate is much lower, at which point nothing you've said is accurate whatsoever in general, "is automated driving safer than manual driving" is a very thorny question that it's difficult to get a real answer to, because there are a large number of confounding variables. the best data we could have in theory are rates on self-driven automated vehicles vs manually-driven automated vehicles of the same type, and even then you run into the problem of "you can't use modern self-driving in many of the more dangerous situations, so your data is likely skewed to begin with" and . also like, just gonna be real here, as a neutral observer I'm basically only writing this reply in the first place because you're being an enormously smug asshole without any real ability to back it up, and you should maybe reconsider how you talk to people or like pick up a statistics book or something idk

I'm not here to be anyone's ally, your country sees us as a tributary state for it to plunder, so its cool with me whatever you choose to do (i just hope individuals in it dont suffer for it obviously), but I keep up with news in general and the US is the cultural hegemon (even more so black American culture). And your comment could literally be extended to anything that is culture related (dont talk to Europeans about race relationships they have their own history!, dont talk to Russians about corruption, they have their own history!) Maybe take the opportunity to look at a perspective not clouded by the fog of your own culture (like how Europeans should do so with Racism) It is a fact tho that saying "i dont trust statistics, i trust my gun to feel safe" is Anti-intellectualism and that it is a cultural prerogative that the US is currently exercising (both from the right and the left), same as how guns are culturally accepted, and I made a comment about that, simple as.I wouldnt have black americans do anything (because im not american or black), im not proposing solutions to your issues, im just commenting on the anti-intellectualism revolving around it.

Reason User banned (permanent): concern trolling over multiple posts
Why do you think I'm arguing with you? I asked you a series of questions to clarify your stance. Since if you haven't realized, you've made a rather bold one yourself.You've stated that the OP does not have a right to an explanation. But it's unclear if by that you mean its always acceptable to leave a date without directly telling the other person. You've made clear certain scenarios where it is acceptable. But in this case without knowing if it's one of these scenarios, you believe its not only wrong to the judge the person, its literally harmful and dangerous. That these people making judgements are potentially dangerous men. I think that's an accurate summary? If the bar for being dangerous or engaging in harmful behavior is making character judgements based on limited information, well I'm curious your thoughts on other threads where character judgements are cast on limited information.

The fuck is wrong with people saying this is a good thing. I get that people want to defend themselves with all those right wing idiots running around like military while cops shoot blacks on sight. But more guns is never ever a good thing cause it just increases the amounts of accidents and suicides. And things like white idiots not wanting blacks in their gun club and now blacks forming their own "black only" clubs just leads to more tension and segregation. Get your fucking gun laws straight and stop all that needless hate on any skin color. The color or your skin doesn't make you a good or bad person you are still a human being and should be treated as that, another fellow human being trying to live your life.

EtcetEraThread NCAA announces they will pull events from any state that bans trans athletes
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Concern Trolling; Account in Junior Phase
I have a lot of questions about this, as I‘m not well informed about this topic. But first off, I think this is really good news and a very important step into the right direction. Fuck everyone that prohibits other people to participate in some kind of sport. People have it hard enough to come out. My questions are: Where does trans athleticism (not even sure about the term, I‘m sorry) stand right now in general? In sports, are trans athletes better than other athletes (regarding the gender they converted to)? Some people have been speculating that this might the case (at least from some media I read a long time ago, but there was no scientific research behind it that gave some truth to the claim). And if (if those athletes perform better by an overwhelming amount), is there at least an approach in existence to make it possible that trans athletes have the possibility to perform in their own groups against other trans athletes? And if it’s the primary approach right now, let me tell you - I have nothing against the idea to watch trans athletes give their all against another group of trans athletes for example. I’ll make the popcorn ready in a minute! I‘m really sorry if something sounds off. In my country, trans athleticism isn’t really a big thing. I don’t even know about one athlete in my country that is trans actually. I want to dig into this and be more informed about it.

EtcetEraThread I'm tired of the anime/manga community's normalization for pedophilia...
Reason User banned (permanent): normalising pedophilia
I wanted to point out a few things that may or may not have been mentioned but to also provide hopefully ideas absent of moral judgment. First, this might have been mentioned previously, but people point out how Japan is gross due to the relatively and definitely lower age of consent. This does not mean that pedophilia isn't looked down upon. The age of consent is primarily power given to the PARENTS. As in, at that age, parents can start marrying their children off or looking for arranged marriage prospects for them or even allow them to have sex depending on if the minor is in a 'loving, sincere relationship'. I am not unfamiliar with the practice of arranged marriage (as I'm Indian) since my parents were brought together via arranged marriage, though only in the last year of my mother's college life. In other words, it's not the same, though statutory rape laws are a bit more variant due to this age of consent as it varies from from around ages 13-14 to 16-18 depending on the context. Furthermore, the term 'lolicon' is slang. If you want to co-opt slang for describing a crime, go ahead, but the specific LEGAL and Pathological/Psychological term for pedophilia is '' in Romaji or '小児性愛者'. Please do not disrespect the language by saying that 'lolicon' is an official or the term for pedophilia, it simultaneously the actual seriousness of the crime by making it all about a niche subculture and also serves to slander otherwise mostly normal people. Finally, another point, and I may come back to this thread to add others: people point out that the '9000 year old vampire' style of excuse wears thin. While it is can be considered a means of circumventing the legality of what would otherwise be a crime, the age of consent, as we've seen, is somewhat arbitrary dependent on the places its enforced. Furthermore, and this is the focus of what I wanted to remind people, . In that vein, unless the character who is a 9000 year old whatever is relatively young for their species, that unit of time is also an absolute measure of their capability to exercise their personal, ethical, spiritual, and sexual agency. If you would like an example of this phenomenon, Rory Mercury, from GATE, is a 961 year old priestess who does everything she can to engage the main character sexually despite having a short, petite and potentially legally questionable body type. The point that I wanted to emphasize from this last point was that . These points I've brought up are not meant to defend lolicons or pedophiles, only provide more level-headed and hopefully amoral context or nuance to the discussion while also hopefully reminding users to treat such a topic with the gravity it deserves.
