Sexual preference isn't a choice. It isn't fatphobia if you aren't attracted to fat or overweight people in the same way that it isn't misogyny if a gay man doesn't find women attractive.
It is pretty damn immature to think that you are entitled to being considered attractive. If you struggle with feeling good about how you look, I empathize. We've all been there, but nobody else owes you your own happiness and self-worth. It is nobody's responsibility to take care of your ego.
Basically, these people need to learn the same lesson that whiny "friendzone" guys need to learn. You are not entitled to other people.
You are not owed a model, whether it's a curvy chick or a chiseled dude, just because you're a pleasant guy or a 'real' woman. They'll date who they want, and if that isn't you, you have to deal with it.
You know how those guys who complain about women being 'prudes' and 'bitches', or about how easy girls have it look like complete dumbasses? You know how the only women they care about are the ones who they think are hot?
Yeah, well, when you complain about how 'most' men are immature or shallow, and the only dudes you seem to value are ripped Calvin Klein models or famous actors, guess how you look? Pretty much exactly the same way.

According to the same logic anyone who is not Chilean shouldn't talk about capitalism since they experienced a brutal dictatorial regime with neo-liberal economic policies.

Oh, I'm no fan of unfettered capitalism either.  When taken to the extreme, both capitalism and socialism are very, very bad.  But the way I understand it, communism is inherently extreme, due to its goals.  And even worse, it's basically impossible in the real world above the city-state level.

Representative democracy doesn't work very well beyond the city-state level either, tbh.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

What's extreme are the means that some communists have used to gain power and means by which they have tried to reach their vision of Communism. Those who have tried to change the system from within and have gained power peacefully have usually been overthrown by an US-supported revolution.

Anarchistic strands of Communism are the ones that aren't viable in the large scale. The ones that are interested only in transforming the economic system and try to do it through the current political systems are more realistic.

Given human nature, a working communist system is simply impossible.

I wonder why worker cooperatives, consumer cooperatives etc. then survive and many of them thrive. They act according to communist principles whether they realize it or not. A worker who is a co-owner of his work place is just as dependent on it for his living as is a capitalist owner. They both have the same incentives to keep it profitable. The difference is the division of those profits and the power structure.¨

I think this sort of discussion might deserve its own thread... and for Ultimate Paragon to take it seriously instead of insultingly and dismissively laughing at people for holding beliefs and ideas counter to his own.
There is no plague more evil and vile to watch spread than the plague that is the Von Habsburg dynasty.

And free will is the closest thing
We will ever see to superpowers

Oh! That explains everything! Neo-Nazi special snowflake! So they're EXTRA stupid!

To be fair that's hardly exclusive to UP.
