It really doesn't feel this long ago, but two and a half years ago my friend Gymnotide posted this thread. I've been meaning to re-post it for months but just never quite got there, so tonight is as good a night as any. For those of you who are too young to know this, OVP stands for Other Voting Polls, the old name of this section. Here is a link to the original thread for those of you who are old enough to have posted here last time. You can see how your answers have changed!

--

{ITT}: Let's play a game


Arrange the following parameters into three groups: support, oppose, and impartial. Don't write anything for each thing, but provide some quick notes at the end if necessary. A copy & paste will be located below.

I am being as restrictive as possible by giving you only three categories to fill. There are no "sometimes," "yes, but...," or "only if." Just answer.

To keep this OVP-material, please minimize the discussion; discussion belongs in OC. Don't go about writing explanatory paragraphs. After all, this is a poll--to be blunt, I'm interested in collecting data, not your opinions.

Some notes, though--

____________________
  • Religion; this is not about whether or not you are religious. Answer whether you believe religion is a positive institution, or you dislike it (you are leaning toward antireligion [read more on Wikipedia]). If you do not care about it or you are secular (keep religion and other things separate), then answer impartial.
  • Spirituality (irreligious only); a spirituality is a belief in forces that supersede human control, but are also deeply involved in human affairs. In other words, a religion is a spirituality that has evolved into mass-practice, whereas a spirituality alone is just the practice. You can be religious and irreligiously spiritual at the same time, such as if you perform certain personal, spiritual rituals outside of your normal faith.
  • Intelligent Design; do you support the idea that a sentient being (not necessarily a god) created the universe as we know it?
____________________
  • Homosexuality; do you believe that homosexuality is morally / biologically / etc. correct?
  • Gay Rights; do you believe that homosexual individuals deserve equal rights (e.g. the right to marry and adopt, job equality, etc.)?
  • Polygamy
  • Censorship
  • Pornography; is pornography a positive institution (economically morally, etc.)?
  • Prostitution; is prostitution a positive institution (economically, morally, etc.)? Should prostitution be legalized?
  • Gambling; how do you feel about people who gamble? Should gambling institutions exist?
____________________
  • Standardized Testing; is standardized testing necessary? Is there too much emphasis on standardized testing?
  • Institutionalized Education; is education a positive institution? I.e., are schools necessary when there is home-schooling? Does the school-to-college system work? Or is it too technical / restrictive?
  • Abortion
  • Euthanasia
  • The Death Penalty
  • Gun Control
  • Corporal Punishment
____________________
  • Evolutionary Theory; "Evolutionary Theory (ET)" differs from "evolution." It is strictly the concept that involves selection processes, methods of evolution, etc. It's answers how evolution occurs, not whether or not it does.
  • Cloning
  • Genetic Engineering
  • Stem Cell Research
  • Animal Experimentation
  • Animal Rights; how do you react to hunting, fur trade, factory farming, overfishing, animal property, etc.?
  • Vegetarianism / Veganism; do you believe that becoming a vegetarian or vegan is beneficial to an individual (not necessarily yourself; whether morally, health-related, or otherwise)?
____________________
  • Marijuana Use
  • Marijuana Legalization
  • Tobacco Use
  • Tobacco Illegalization
  • Alcohol
  • Steroids (non-medical); that is, recreational, as enhancement for sports, appearance, in the pornography scene, etc.

Copy and paste this list and then sort the items into the three sections below

Abortion
Alcohol
Animal Experimentation
Animal Rights
Censorship
Cloning
Corporal Punishment
The Death Penalty
Euthanasia
Evolutionary Theory
Gambling
Gay Rights
Genetic Engineering
Gun Control
Homosexuality
Institutionalized Education
Intelligent Design
Marijuana Legalization
Marijuana Use
Polygamy
Pornography
Prostitution
Religion
Spirituality (irreligious only)

just some notes


A lot of these are here for the same reason: I support free will over one's own body. Alcohol consumption, euthanasia, homosexuality, marijuana use, polygamy, pornography, prostitution, steroids, and tobacco use all fall under this principle. Naturally, I do think that there is a certain point where some of these things become incredibly dangerous and life threatening, and at that point I start to differ in my thought process. But a little of these things every now and then is okay in my book.

Animal rights I support, but only down to the most fundamental belief. We, as living creatures, don't have any right to be in command of any life but our own. I believe domestication, in some ways, is like slavery.

In regards to homosexuality, I just want to note that I don't think it's biologically natural. Apart from and despite that, I do support it and I don't think that that should be a reason people should be against it.

Tobacco use is something I support, because of what I said earlier, but I also believe that it has absolutely no positive effects for the body and is foolish and life threatening, no matter how small the amount consumed is.

Vegetarianism / Veganism is something I greatly respect in people. I believe that we as a society should grow to a point where we no longer eat meat or consume byproducts of animals and we can live independently of each other, but I am someone who consumes it. If I were to meet two people and they were identical in every possible way, with the exception of one of them being a meat-eater and the other a vegan, I would greatly favor the vegan.


I oppose

Abortion
Animal Experimentation
Censorship
Intelligent Design
Standardized Testing
Tobacco Illegalization

just some notes


Abortion is on both lists of things that I support and things that I suppose, because I do believe that after the fetus is developed enough, it would be homicide. I'm still ignorant on when life begins, but I feel that after life does begin and the fetus actually begins to feel, then that's the point where abortion is something I don't support.

I don't support animal experimentation because I feel that we are developed enough to consider other options, but I understand why it's beneficial, and I would rather it be animal experimentation than human experimentation. Still, I don't believe it's at all the moral thing to do.

If you know anything about me, you know that I'm against censorship. Just the act of censoring a curse word angers me.

I am against standardized testing, simply because I believe there is other ways of measuring ones' intelligence than having them recall facts taught to them earlier on. I'm at a point in my life where I question intelligence as a whole because, at least in school settings, its often measured in your ability to regurgitate things said to you rather than actually being well educated in a particular matter.

Because I support free will over one's own body, I am opposed to tobacco illegalization.


I am impartial to

Cloning
Corporal Punishment
Evolution theory
Stem Cell Research

just some notes


These are just things that I don't care about one way or the other.

    ---------------------------------
    I realise I am impartial to quite a lot. It doesn't mean I don't have an opinion, but that my opinion goes both ways. For example, I fully support gay rights, no two ways about it, whereas for something like animal testing, I support it for serious medical drugs but not for cosmetics. I use pornography and have no problem with it, yet it's not what I consider moral.

    I'm not on the fence for most issues, I'm in both gardens.

    Mostly did this as an exercise to see how I feel about the issues, surprised myself a little! And like above, using 'impartial' as "both agree and disagree".

          In the spirit of not qualifying my answers, I went with my immediate gut feeling on these.
