This is a peaceful little forum. I don't think anyone wants it to turn into another Ozpol.

so mothra just wants to spread lies unchallenged - you are as weak as piss- you wont be allowed to lie about me and hide here in this "peaceful little forum"- I will start that thread as aussie suggested- to keep it seperate-

Telling lies about a member here Mothra is keeping this forum peaceful in what way-?
:WTF


You told lies about me for a whole year but no more - this is a despicable horrible destructive lie-



' ........... Telling lies about a member here Mothra is keeping this forum peaceful in what way-? ......... '

Can I humbly request of you Agnes, that you start a Thread titled "Me and Mothra," so your problem with her is focussed there, and not anywhere else?

I will refocus this in a new thread aussie of course

A few very basic inconsistencies amuse me about you M'balls- and you ain't ready to hear it-

I want a linK where I laughed at rape- where I think it is "hilarious"- dont lie and dont lie about me- the one thing I have said is I dont believe your story about what was supposed to have happened too you as told by you- I fart in your general direction - now links/proof of my mirth regards rape or an apology-

you make stuff up in your head and try to crucify ppl with same- hatred spread by you based on a complete lie - you do it all the time and trying to again- now get me a link to prove I laugh at rape- I'm waiting-

You do realise it was christians doing the enslavement of women?

Any man who does not speak out against such material disrespects all women

You realise The Handmaid’s Tale was written by a woman.

If it is woman hating than fundamentalist christians hate women. That is why they do not teach women to read. There is a LOT more to the Tale than women hating christians!

No, my opinion is as I stated. There is a thread here on control of women’s bodies. Have a read:

http://polanimal.com.au/viewtopic.php?p=50722#p50722

I have had an interest in this creeping religious subversion of the state to remove women’s freedom to control her own bodies.

You two might like churches seeking control through political parties I think it is an ominous development.

I think that ^^^ rubbish is just an excuse to watch this claptrap -- its total fucking crap-- sadism- next- who thinks rape glorified is interesting?

Banned?

What about movies depicting WWII and the Holocaust - ban those?
