    Its much more definitive than that. Blame = Responsibility + Fault.

    The question therefore is whether a victim can be at fault for their rape (or whatever). The answer is "no, you fucking moron".
    Okay but you can see how those two words might be confusing to a non-English native yes?
    You people forget that the same discussion also is perfectly valid in other languages.
    Maybe, I only speak one language though so couldn't say.

    This is clearly a micro aggression.
    i prefer to use the term "Tiny Antagonism" as micro can upset people suffering from the valid medical issue of micro penis

    Antagonist is the 8th gender discovered by scientists and you are a part of the oppressive patriarchy.

    but yes, and that's what I've been repeatedly trying to say too, if less concisely.
    You still don't get it at all. Its not semantics at all - it goes to the very fundamental question of fault.
    Sigh, semantics as in meaning of words, as in didn't understand what words meant, and then spun a bullshit argument out of it.

    And i've been going on about that very thing, about who is at fault, so chill eh?

    "it's just semantics" is the last ditch attempt to dismiss the argument as pointless and try to make yourself look better pretty much

    strictly speaking it is semantics, again, as we're discussing the meaning of words, but yeah, it's stupid to say therefore it doesn't matter

    words are fucking important, shockingly, and even more shockingly IT nerds don't seem to get that, eh?

    It is semantics but its not "just" semantics. It's semantics AND substance, and the latter makes it very important.

    No its not, blame and responsibility are used synonymously in this dicussion in english and in many other languages pretty much all the time, and vicitims can be responsible/blamed. That doesnt matter to the law at all, but in the real world it does.

    Scientology

    It's considered a religion here in the U.S

    Is it ok to insult/mock/criticize/attack this Religion?

    Yes or no?

    (watched a few episodes of the Leah Remini Anti-Scientology show on A&E last night).

    It is ok to mock all religions.

    Also isn't Scientology actually a financial scam?

    Battlefield Earth: The Religion is somehow even worse than the original book which I can't believe I actually read
