A common term in otaku fandom, a yandere is a person (usually female) romantically obsessed with someone to the point of using violent means to get them in their arms. Often seen with a sharp weapon and a psychotic grin.
Hey look, Charlotte just killed Karen just for coming within 10 feet of her crush Joey.
Must be a yandere. Avoid at all cost.
An emotional and spiritual relationship between a couple that does not involve sexual desire. A working platonic relationship is mighty rare these days.
Platonic love is wonderful. Unfortunately, today's sex-crazed culture has driven it to near extinction.
The use of improvisational means to obtain sexual gratification in the absence of a partner.
Because the word "masturbation" sounds kind of boring, people have come up with an absurd amount of euphemisms for what is essentially sex without a partner.
I tried to look up "masturbation" on UD, but the constant use of euphemisms and the lack of a real definition drove me crazy.
An embarrassment to conservative Christians everywhere.
Robertson is constantly firing off inflammatory statements, overdramatizing revelant issues and making up others. His abrasive attitude towards sinners drives further away from Christ and further towards damnation. Plus, he advocates a twisted theology that tells Christians they should take over the world and oppress nonbelievers. Jesus never advocated that.
The worst part of Robertson's teachings is the way the secular Left uses them to present a carictured pictured of evangelicals. The American people are scared into hating evangelicalism and supporting secularism, and the Left maintains its stranglehold on American culture.
Who are you?
I'm an evangelical.
So that means you're like Pat Robertson?
Simply put, the removal of a fetus from the womb.
A horrible thing that I wish would just disappear.
You know how the Republicans (and some Democrats) are always complaining about abortion. Well get this: As much as these politicians make gestures towards getting rid of abortion, they will NEVER completely eliminate it. Why? Because abortion produces plenty of tub-thumping. It allows politicians an issue to demagogue each other and appeal to people of faith with talk of the "right to life." Abortion is important to politicians because of its value as a political tool. If abortion simply disappeared, politicians would have to find another issue to emptily "debate" about.
Republican: Vote for me and I'll get rid of abortion.
Translation: We'll impose minor restrictions and pass 10 zillion resolutions. Because if we actually outlawed abortion, we'd lose our most important power-maintaining "issue." It's like the Eternal War in Nineteen Eighty-Four.
OK, let's clear up some myths:
1. Slavery. The conventional un-wisdom says that had the Confederacy not been defeated, slavery would still be around. Nothing could have less truth value. The modernization of farming that occurred in the late 19th century ensured that slavery would have simply become obsolete had it not been outlawed.
2. The right to secede. Yes, it's legal for a state to leave the Union. While the Founding Fathers intended for the US to have a reasonably strong central government, they also believed that there was a point where the state governments could act if they felt that that federal government had gotten TOO powerful. The Confederacy was doing just that. Look at history, and you'll find that "Honest Abe" had some BIG plans for the government.
3. Civil Liberties. In times gone past, when the US fought wars, the government saw no need to silence critics. As for how this pertains to the current War on Terror, I'm not quite sure. Now I do believe there are some things you just can't do, like exposing government plans. Expressing your opinion is good enough.
4. Lincoln's views on race. Contrary to the myths, Lincoln was not the heroic "Great Emancipator." His opposition to slavery was based purely on political convenience. He did not intend for the freed slaves to stay, but for them to be deported to some place where they couldn't bother whites.
Me: I support the Confederacy
Idiot: You racist!
Me: Oh yeah? Why don't you do some research before opening your mouth.
Idiot: Because it's too inconvenient!
A scientific...oh, what the heck am I saying. It really is poppycock.
Sorry guys. I now realize that Intelligent Design is as stupid as you say it is. But don't you dare tell me "I told you so."
