Bolded: Nothing scientific to ever prove that claim,only emotions and even that thought can be considered sexist.

Women are probably believed more on average, but they're definitely much more likely to be raped.

If i tell you men tend to struggle more with those kind of things and maybe make a group of people to follow me would that be enough incentive for you to believe it?

Depends on how you framed it.  

I'd believe that the average woman has a harder time than the average man.  But the average male rape victim could have a harder time than the average female rape victim.  (Would be kind of terrible to try to quantify "harder time", but I digress...)

If you had something stronger than that, I'd need some proof.

Believe women is a slogan and not a movement,it is used by the overused "me too" movement but that does not make that slogan a movement.

Right

First bolded: My heart goes out for all of the victims and i would say that women have the "weaker" Physical build of the 2 genders and that could translate in more victims but women also tend to report alot more while men on the otherhand tend to keep quiet about it,so yeah i partly agree with that but not with the source you have your info from because it is not a source but a translation from mostly only female writers and first thing i noticed was that Trump reference ?

On the other hand ,even when women have a weaker physical build it says nothing about abusement in a relationship itself and abusive women tend to mentally abuse their men and break them to the point they  can not defend themselves physically when receiving physical abuse and it is not baked into our culture for men to report that so i still think"believe women" is unneeded division of genders for this topic.

Second bolded:I can just ask the same of you,"i need some proof" and till now there is nothing concrete yet just "believe" like you said.

Trump was at his Trumpiest at a campaign rally (yes, a 2020 presidential campaign rally already) in Michigan yesterday.

If Hillary got in... you'd be doing wind. Windmills. Weeeee.

And if it doesn't blow, you can forget about television for that night.

'Darling, I want to watch television.' 'I'm sorry! The wind isn't blowing.'

I know a lot about wind.

I had to read that a couple of times before I understood the general sentiment he was going for. This is borderline incoherent. It's rants like these that make me question if he might not maybe have dementia.

I've been wondering that for years.  Every time I hear him talk or read some of his quotes, the grammar, syntax and general flow of thought makes me question his cognitive capacity.

Consider this word salad from July, 2018.

“I have broken more Elton John records. He seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No, we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look, I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really, we do it without, like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical – the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth, right? The brain. More important than the mouth is the brain. The brain is much more important.”

Beto will official kick off his campaign today in El Paso, Texas. It's by a part of the border that Trump said he will shut down.

Probably not.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

He spoke it.   The sheer ignorance that compels him to believe that you cannot store energy from windmills is staggering.  Worse is that he had the expectation that his rally attendees all have the same mental cognition and would accept his statement as fact.

"I know a lot about wind". That line right there, and how he delivers it, is clearly Trump being Trump. He's joking around. He may understand the cost of wind and how that compares to fossil fuels, but how wind energy actually works, probably not. He's being a smart ass. He knows that he doesn't actually know all that much about wind, and he also knows when he says stuff like, I know a lot about _insert topic here_, that it drives the left mad because they either hate his ego and arrogance or they hate that he's 'lying' because they think he really believes it himself and so does 'much' of his audience. Many know it's just part of the show.

I used to do something similar to my brother all the time when we were young and it would drive him insane when we argued, which was the point. Looking back it was a bit of a dick move because he was a few years younger, so he didn't have the life experience yet, and he's also always been more closed minded, but when he actually had a valid point, or wasn't simply being a pain in the butt for the sake of it, I wouldn't act like that. I partially see the same with Trump. He's getting bashed constantly for little to no reason, rarely heavily justified, and so he's being a dick to drive them nuts as retaliation, hoping they will back down. If they don't, then it's simply fair game as far as he's concerned. Usually this is a last ditch tactic if you can't get through in a politically correct manner.

It has very little to do with what he actually said, and much more to do with Trump trying to prove he's right and his opponents are wrong. He's basically a Gorilla bashing his chest. Trying to get attention and showing everyone who the boss is, because it's a tactic that works if you know what you're doing, for men anyway, especially if you can back it up. It's not so much about what he's saying, it's how he's saying it, and the body language that accompanies it.

That's the best April Fools post I've seen all day.
