I just returned from muslim-majority Kashmir where the restaurant and hotel workers who engage with the public are all men. I have a heightened fear of all religion especially the most dangerous and oppressive of them all. My new Kasmiri friend who is a scientist doesn't believe in evolution theory because it conflicts with his Quran. Yes Im islamophobic. Do you have a problem with that? Im confused by your question "Do you want to stay here"
I try to avoid terms that have the suffix "phobic" because of the "irrational fear" connotations.
Yes there is much to fear from all religions and it is far from irrational.

Did you see something about answering questions?

See the section called "Repeated refusal to acknowledge specific questions".
Questions questions everywhere. The question about my GamerGate comment? It was stupid of me to bring up GamerGate. I retract it. I'm going back to my safe space

So, that is another refusal then?

Poor petal. This is not going well, is it?

Do you want to rethink your approach to engagement?

I am confused by your use of the term "islamophobic". why are you afraid of Islam? you should definitely be concerned about it, critical of it, even detest it, but afraid?

You thinking that you can provoke suicide by mod?

You may be right - I am not one.

Would that serve some fantasy about being repressed?

Oh dear me! More questions.

Mod note.

Thread is back open now. Let's keep it real please. And if everyone could make an effort towards making the world a better place it would be appreciated.

Richard you may well be required to substantiate any or all statements you make on this forum. It's the culture of the place. It keeps things very honest. We also test ideas to destruction. Anyone's ideas. It's not a place for the faint of heart. If you stick around you will definitely learn many many things just as I have. Reading and understanding and reading some more then some thinking will stand you in good stead. If in doubt, ask questions. Just be careful about JAQing off. It's effectively trolling. And also please note it's very hard to read intent into some posts. Being clear and concise will help here.
