Q: Cultural diversity. Minority rights. I eat dogs in your country, you respect that, OK?

Minority rights, favorite of leftists (correct me if I am wrong, I believe you call them leftists),says you must respect those rights.

 

Dalu mainlanders emigate to your country, buy dog, kill dog, cook dog in their home. Claim protection under cultural diversity and minority rights protection. You can't deny that dog eating is part of traditional chinese culture, very popular in Guangxi region.

 

As title question asks, is that OK? If not, what's wrong here?

 

(This is related to Muslims in Europe, in particular the new refugees, addressing cultural differences,and the consequences of some of the leftists' blind support under the universal love & tolerance umbrella)

I actually read this whole discussion.

I'm swinging more for the "when in rome" team but I'm not ashamed of the colour of my skin, my culture or my country, nor do I feel any guilt about those things. Unlike a pompous narrowminded wanker who believes he is the paragon of free speech, new age ideology, unicorn hugging and self loathing. The most amazing part was the sheer resilience of this particular user to embark on frustrated diatribes of complete bollocks and argue ridiculous points with fallacy. For unicorn's sake, some of the comments made by this wanker me ashamed to be an Australian. I think Ted mentioned that he was trapped in his own ideology and i have to agree but I'd say he's trapped in a fucked up, confused, full of shit, wannabe different, pompous wanker, ideology.

As amusing as it is to watch someone commit forum suicide, it is a little worrisome that someone is so eager to sell out their own county and culture based on the fact he believes he's an anarchist. Clearly he has no clue what that means either.

Egypt twin bombings, April 10, 2017

 

Cathedral bombed, ceremonial day, celebrating Jesus coming into town.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/familiees-gather-after-egypt-church-attack-state-of-emergency-approved/ar-BBzAqSh?li=BBnb7Kz

 

Not just Eygpt, every church worldwide from now on is a possible target. 

 

Please don't visit those websites with videos capturing the gruelsome events. They are initially released by the terrorists involved. Each clicking of those videos help them get what they want, attention, thus encourages them further their activities.

 

If you find the above makes sense, please also advise people you know not to do that too.

Who the fuck cares about buying alcohol in a Muslim country? That is their law in their country and harmless, hurts fucking no one. You're comparing it to eating dogs?

If a Muslim came to  my home and refused alcohol, no fucking problem! But in a Nanninger came to my home and brought a dish of dog, I'll tell the asshole to get the hell out. Not every  cultural practice is welcome / acceptable in a new country.

The OP is not saying fucking cultural practice is unwelcome. Some fit nicely, some don't exactly fit but are not offensive (wearing veils) some are offensive (forced arranged marriages) other are out right dangerous like wanting to kill people for silly reasons!!!!!!!!!

If you are so simpleminded that you can't discern 1 from the other then you are not qualified for this discussion.

 

 

look at this: http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9034

"

On another slide, a character named Alejandro schedules a 9:00 a.m. meeting between two groups of foreign professors and students. The first group arrived fifteen minutes early, while the second arrived ten minutes late. According to the answers, it is wrong for Alejandro to “politely ask the second group to apologize,” or explain that “in our country, 9:00 a.m. means 9:00 a.m.”

Rather, the slide says that Alejandro should “recognize cultural differences that may impact the meeting and adjust accordingly,” and understand “that his cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other.”

 

bending our cultural norms to fit people who chose to come here is fucking ridiculous!! Sth so basic as not arriving late is in debate?

Shining you're a shining example of a man imprisoned by his ideology, you sound brainwashed because you refuse to see reality.

 

Me complaining about my negative experiences or poking fun at the aspects of Chinese society that I find silly are completely unrelated to the topic because I'm not trying to push against China's cultural traditions or force China to adopt to me. I'm not posing a threat to any individual because they refuse to accept my way. I'm not throwing aspects of my culture that offends Chinese in their face. 

The topic at hand is sb from an outside culture looking to impose their belief on others , when it runs in direct conflict with that country's culture. Or insisting on practicing a cultural habit despite the fact that it maybe illegal or extremely offensive, as in the OP's example. You seem to be purposefully over simplifying things in order to hide behind your ideology. We're talking about aspects that may be extremely offensive, not trivial aspects. In  order to protect your ideology you are ignoring a basic truth, this is not a black/ white issue there are areas of grey, degrees!

Let's say a Chinese guy comes to America and decides to live in a Christian town where all the stores choose not to sell booze on Sunday. But he opens a shop that sells booze on Sundays. No big deal, even though it rubs against the local culture it hurts fucking no one. And they can simply choose to boycott.  But in America the lives of dogs have value almost equal to that of people! So eating a dog in America is deeply offensive because it is seen as killing . Can you see the difference? Me complaining about being harassed is the same as the dog eating thing in your mind? If that Chinese guy would go online and poke fun at Americans for caring about dogs with other Chinese expats, you'll see that as the same actually eating a dog?

You seem also to be attacking others views but offering no counter view. Let me ask you this how would you feel if a muslim familysent their kids to a school in Australia and then demanded that the school stop serving pork?

How would you feel is a swedish guy set up a dolphin restaurant in Australia (assuming Aussies feel the same about dolphins as Americans do)

Better question do you think they should be allowed to do this?

Daluren eating dogs in my country doesn't anger me nearly as much as me serial bedding their women in their country angers them.

Respect my sexually liberated culture, minorities rights, stuff like that.

Whenever I go past this thread, I get reminded of my grandmother... and the good old days of 40+ years ago, where is was normal to call people from different lands 'chinks', 'nips', 'towelheads' (although, that was a bit more recent), 'abos', and 'boongs' (if we were in America, that'd be 'nigger' and whatever other racial pejoratives you used).

 

I'm reminded that Australian actually mean 'British' as far as our 'culture' was concerned...

 

And that to be Australian meant standing up and defending the idea of a White Australia, and good old British values as the only values worth having. You had to be Christian (at least in name).

 

And it was perfectly ok to say to say to someone "go back home"...

 

I did actually reply to your question earlier Earthi, but it looks like it didn't go through (and I got logged out and all!!)

 

Yes, many (most?) Australians would be appalled if someone came over here and wanted to start eating dog meat.

 

The funny thing is - and what you guys don't get is... it's NOT WRONG!

 

You seem to have this idea that doing something that offends us is inherently wrong, and must be stopped at all costs...

 

You, presumably, are going to head on down that slippery slope to start saying, therefore, that FGM is ok in our country, because if you allow one thing that offends you, then you must allow ALL things in ... in the name of 'culture' or 'religion'. Frankly, only idiots would even attempt that argument... as if people aren't sane enough to see distinctions...

 

So, go ahead... tell  me how eating dog meat is the moral equivalent of FGM or wife bashing....

 

 

What I see here - exceptionally clearly - is that if someone wants to do something that YOU PERSONALLY do not agree with, then it's bad and shouldn't be allowed. Even the comments above on religion show this loud and clear... You want this world (or at least, your part of it) to remain exactly as YOU want it.... and any changes MUST be approved by you. There is ZERO consideration of how other people think and feel about things.

 

We have a  word for that now on this board... Yangist.

Shining: you can't argue against the topic of this post so you keep changing the argument. Who the fuck said what an individual finds offensive ? What the predominant culture of that particular country finds offensive. Example libs and cons almost unanimously stand against eating dogs, So if a dog eater goes to America they have no right to be catered to, when it comes to eating dogs! Simple, respond to that, should they be catered to?

@Shining
2.2% re 2016 census of the Australian population are muzzie.
What percentage of terrorism in Australia would be fair to say are committed by Muslim perpetrators?
So before you go on a off the topic rant ...answer this question.
By the way i can't get anyone to cover my bets anymore as your replies are to predictable
