and really, this can apply to anything. let's talk about furries for a moment, shall we? for the two of you who don't know, furries are (as i understand it) people who get off on dressing as anthropomorphic animals. they're also the laughingstocks of the internet. and just today i came across nazi furries, which ratchets it up a notch. they dress like anthropomorphic animals who dress like nazis. now on the one hand, far be it from me to claim somebody's sexual preferences are not up to the same level of respectability as my own, because really, how could anyone possibly rank something like that? there is just no criteria. but on the other hand, i can't help but wtf at it all. for all my attempt at liberal acceptance, some things are just fucking weird.
King Nixon (8:42:04 PM): sometimes these people make me feel very whitebread
discordia81 (8:42:19 PM): i think we are though, aren't we?
King Nixon (8:42:36 PM): "i like giant anthropomorphic badgers dressed as hitler"
King Nixon (8:42:39 PM): "i like.... uh... girls"
edit! this isn't to say that i don't think general religious/spiritual beliefs are plenty ridiculous. because i usually do (possibilities of them being true notwithstanding). but i can still talk/think about them reasonably with no problem. the more specific the details get, the harder it is for me to not facepalm.
so in conclusion, i am open-minded but i think you're probably wrong.
