NSFW Banners... IRL

There's a dude on campus right now sitting a folding chair with a huge banner with pictures of aborted fetuses from the third trimester. The opposite side compares abortion to the holocaust. I'm pretty sure the pictures, even just linked to, would be banworthy.

He's also got a video camera set up, presumably to capture students reacting to him. I don't think people calling him a douchebag is quite the response he wanted, though.

So what stuff have you guys seen in real life that would have gotten the person banned from the forums here?

    I saw a guy sleeping in the street with his genitals exposed and also having a full blown erection

    so uh

    I guess that uh... If you post images of your erect penis here, would get you banned...

    sigh

    I don't know if it would get me banned, but I saw a legless guy huddled in the doorway of an abandoned shop, in front of him was a big puddle of frothy green puke.

    I thought that was pretty horrible.

    When I visited New York last month, I stayed at a hotel a block away from the Twin Towers site. Everyday, there'd be people there with a huge sign, something about 9/11 being a conspiracy and yelling at tourists as they walked by. Now, you can believe whatever nutjob thing you want, but is it really necessary to do it right in front of the place? Old news, but seeing that still made me kinda mad.

    People like that and those wackjobs that go to funerals and hate on the gays just seem kinda silly and stupid.

    banners are nothing, motherfuckers here had 3 20 foot towers of aborted fetus pictures, one had just a severed hand next to a dime, a dime that was 5 feet across. they had these 3 towers set up in the middle of campus near the student center, which put it in my way on my voyage to chic-fil-a. Strangley when I saw the towers from a far distance I thought the Army had set up a rock climbing wall again and was slightly excited, but it just turned out to be feti, not even ones I could climb :(

    my friend got tricked into giving a girl a ride to go pick up her friend from surgery because the girl (not in surgery) locked her keys in her car. Half way there she tells him that the surgery her friend is having is an abortion. He said his car got surrounded by protestors on the way in and they were screaming at him and stuff. it seems strange to me because this dude is about the most upstanding christian person I've met and he was just trying to help someone out.

    a friend of mine got an abortion last year

    she felt so immensly guilty about it, she told no-one except her boyfriend. he was a real douchebag, that one. he talked her into getting it in the first place and then when she got it, he dumped her because apparently that close call to actually having to take responsibility for his actions made him squirrely about being in a relationship.

    eventually, she told me, because she wanted to talk to someone about it. but she was apprehensive, because she knew how i felt about it.

    you know how i reacted? I told her "So far as I'm concerned, you've confessed to me that you've killed someone. That you've ended a human life. Your own child's life. You have your reasons, and I understand where you are coming from on it. Yes, I judge you. Yes, I think it's wrong, and I think on a level it makes you a bad person. But, I don't hate you, and I'm not going to reject you or stop being friends with you. You're just going to have to live with the fact that I think less of you now than I did."

    Sometimes I think that was overly harsh. But really, I'm not sure how else to react to such a thing.

    I've had near the same conversation before, and felt the same way. Sometimes it's hard to juggle upholding your own beliefs and still respecting other peoples :/

    I'd give you an A+ Pony. There is no point in telling someone "it okay" when you don't mean it. You made your feelings clear but still showed you cared about the person and it didn't change your relationship with them.

    what the hell, pony

    there are times when being perfectly honest about your opinions is appropriate

    but if being honest means telling someone who has come to you for help that they're a murderer, then you should probably tell a little white lie and say you think they'll be just fine

    The fact that she felt guilty about it at all, and that she had the courage to tell me about it knowing I was going to judge her and say something that was going to hurt her speaks volumes of her character and who she is as a person.

    So while I think she did something horrible, and that it sort of stains her as a person, it doesn't make her worthless. It means she's human, she made a terrible, selfish mistake and feels badly about it. Doesn't wash what she did away, either. Just means I can still talk to her and be friends with her.

    i don't think this is one of those times.

    she wouldn't have come to me if she wanted a sugary pat on the back.

    she knew better.

    she came to me because she wanted my honesty, so that's what she got.

    I went out with a girl for a couple of months who had an abortion. It took a while to work into us actually having a relationship, and I never understood why until she told me the story.

    Its really heavy stuff, to be sure.

    I've done some pretty terrible things in my life.

    depending on how you stack it, i might even be a mur-diddly-urdler

    i don't expect any of my friends or anyone close to me, if confronted with my history that way, to pat on the back and say that it's okay and that it's understandable.

    it isn't. it's just unfortunate, and it's happened, and it's in the past now and you try to move forward with your life, but at the same time not erasing what you've done or who you've been

    anything less than that is deep personal dishonesty.

    While I may not agree with what Ponyfeels, or said to her, and I'm not etirely sure it was the "correct" thing to do.... I still respect him for telling her the truth. He is correct however in that she knew ahead of time what he would think and still came to him. In that sense he did the correct thing.


    However overall? I may have been a tad less harsh. But thats the difference between us. Niether one is really right or wrong. We hold polar opposite views on the subject.
