This is a second account. I'm using this account to talk about any controversial topics. I have another HubPages account that's all about entertainment. This account is a kind of dump for anything I consider too controversial for the main account. In other words, the stuff I don't expect to make money from. I split this that way because short, ranty, political posts tend to get low Hub scores, and I want my average Hub score to remain high on the other account.
So, this account will deal with the following topics:
Politics - US: I am a moderate libertarian with liberal leanings.
Cultural and Social: I talk about the reasons I have for not liking "social justice warriors", but I also want to address some of the points they make.
Feminism: I see it as a cult I left behind. Sure they once had some valid criticisms of society, but they got everything they want. They've also become corrupt and manipulative, thinking that repeating fake statistics and slogans enough will make people believe them. I talk about my many concerns with the movement as well as my hopes for gender harmony in the future.
Religion: I'm an atheist (duh, in the name). But instead of being so negative like other internet atheists, I want to genuinely try to see things from the perspective of religious people. I also want to reach out to believers and explain what I think about their religious beliefs, without (hopefully) coming across as condescending or rude.
Censorship and the Media: I want to encourage people to be critical of whatever the media tells them, whatever cultural or political messages they're hearing. So I will be discussing things like fact-checking, censorship, personal self-expression, why I dislike the concept of cultural appropriation, etc.
