    Is war a humane notion? A human notion?

    Let's say that animals are evolving into more and more intelligent and empathetic species. But my reasoning is philosophical. Not biological.

    Is war a humane notion? A human notion?

    Hannah Arendt in her work "The Banality of Evil" points out that the defining quality of the human being (what makes us different than animals) is to be able to think. Meaning, that animals eat, sleep and have sex, they all do these things mechanically. Without thinking of what meaning these...

    Is war a humane notion? A human notion?

    I am speaking of philosophy and theology, here. And those who conceived the Holocaust, for instance, or those who committed so many evil crimes against humanity during WW2...well...in order to do those things and then go to bed as if nothing had happened, I need to assume that they are soulless...

    Does homophobia make sense?

    I can assure you that many heterosexual women have been hit on by lesbians...and it's not pleasant either. And lesbians can be infinitely more clingy than gay men. That said...I have noticed a shameful doublestandardism from straight men. They are bothered by the presence of two gay men holding...

    Is war a humane notion? A human notion?

    I don't think so. Because I have my Christian faith that tells me that every living being must be respected. Even animals. The Nazis used to kill their own peers too. Fellow Germans. Nazis were assassins, period. If they didn't feel any emotion while doing what they were doing, well...that's...

    Is war a humane notion? A human notion?

    This is more about philosophy, not biology. Biologically speaking, scientists can define Homo Sapiens Sapiens as Animalia. That's true. Philosophically and theologically speaking (evolution has also philosophical implications), is man an animal? Or is he something else, more sophisticated?

    Does homophobia make sense?

    You're right. Also because each country and each culture has its own vision of manhood and its own cultural schemes. I guess what you said it's true about the US. I mean...there's this vision of manhood that depends on how feelings and emotions are conveyed by men. Seldom. In my country...

    Does homophobia make sense?

    Psychologically interesting. This makes you question their alleged heterosexuality.... Because if I frequent lesbians, I am not afraid of anything. I already know that frequenting them will not make me like women... Freud would have probably thought something like that.

    Does homophobia make sense?

    Maybe it's fear to become gay...?

    Does homophobia make sense?

    Honestly I think that you're absolutely right. But in my opinion, it's some bisexuals who hate homosexuals because the latter live their sexuality above board. Whereas bisexuals are often covert bisexuals or people who pretend to be 100% straight, and this repression makes them angry and...

    Does homophobia make sense?

    I mean...inspired by a recent controversy...in the religious, ecclesiastical field... does the sentiment of homophobia that heterosexuals may feel, make sense? I think it's irrational and self-contradictory. I mean...I am straight. I am into men. If the most beautiful women are gay...it means...

    pope made homophobic slur

    I don't criticize him for saying what he said. He probably was denouncing the obvious fact that the compulsory ecclesiastical celibacy pushes so many gay men to choose the ecclesiastical career in the RCC. But they wanted that. The Vatican has always defended it.

    Is war a humane notion? A human notion?

    I advise you to watch this movie Entrusted. It shows that several Germans, Italians and French people saved so many Jews from extermination. They gave their life. It shows that some humans have evolved from the animal stage. Others are still animals.

    Is war a humane notion? A human notion?

    Does it mean that men have become worse than animals?

    pope made homophobic slur

    I think that there are too many contradictions in this Papacy: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/pope-denounces-hypocrisy-those-who-criticise-lgbt-blessings-2024-02-07/ He has always shown so much openness towards LGBT people and then he uses two terms that Roman comedians use to make fun of...

    Italian writer against women choosing the bear: hating men has become fashionable

    Thank you for clarifying. But then I need to disclose to you that numerous Italian females have that kind of behavior with the guys they are into.

    Italian writer against women choosing the bear: hating men has become fashionable

    But only if the man does it, right?

    pope made homophobic slur

    Guys...come on... the word he used...I mean...half of Italy has been laughing since this early morning. Non-stop. ;) I guess he (allegedly) used a slur that means to target those passive, feminized priests...

    Italian writer against women choosing the bear: hating men has become fashionable

    I think that it's logical what "Selfie in Vaticano" means...right? The girl makes positive remarks about the Guard's beauty and then she asks him for a selfie together. He won't answer and she makes the selfie anyway...touching him...as you can see. Isn't that sexual assault?

    Italian writer against women choosing the bear: hating men has become fashionable

    The problem is that American feminists have a peculiar vision of sexual harassment. Isn't this sexual harassment according to this definition? What this girl is doing with this Swiss Guard? Potential rapists. That's what feminists claim. It depends on the definition of sexual harassment.
