Who cares what I do? I just want to say that Y!A is somewhat limited, there's no real dialogue so, should you feel like it, do write, I answer e-mails quite frequently.

  • Ó, conterrâneos de todo o país que no Y!R presentemente se encontram....?

    Até quando permitiremos que a religião exerça tanto poder sobre nossa sociedade (especialmente aquela representada pela CNBB)? Até quando suportaremos o não-debate sobre assuntos tão importantes como o aborto, a eutanásia, o machismo institucional (o carnaval, por exemplo) e os direitos civis da população homossexual? Até quando ignoraremos a assustadora ascensão dos evangélicos que, se conseguirem articular a sua seita, serão possivelmente mais nocivos do que a igreja católica? E até quando, pergunto eu, aguentaremos a permissividade com a qual a igreja católica lava as mentes mais carentes e ignorantes deste país com sua ladainha referente à benção espiritual que supostamente é a pobreza?

    Em outras palavras, quando realmente separar-se-á a Igreja e o Estado?

  • Isn't it hilarious...?

    ... that sports fans in the West, most of which are clearly homophobic (Patriots fans, Brazilian and Italian football fans, etc.), are unable to see the latent homosexuality in collective games such as football, American football, and basketball? Moreover, isn't it equally humorous to see otherwise "manly" men hugging and kissing each other when their teams score? Do these folks not realize that most sports were created in older societies (Greece ands Rome, for instance) where folks would f**k pretty much anything that moved and looked human?

  • Is it just me or is Y!A populated by 13 year-olds?

    Seriously, the questions and answers found on this site are either those of children or incredibly bigoted, illiterate, moronic adults. Not only do some questions keep repeating but folks (myself included, unfortunately) keep answering them again and again and again. What the f**k?

  • How can I discover my tells and get rid of them?

    I've a very hard time bluffing in Poker and Truco (a popular game in Brazil). I'm now at a point where I don't smile or anything but folks still know it when I bluff.

  • What do you think of when you hear the word "Brazil"?

    After expounding on said word, do tell me where you're from, that's always interesting to know.

    And no research allowed, people, I would like to know what you think the very second you finish reading this.

    And yes, I'm from Brazil (São Paulo, to be exact).

  • Is it necessary to rape the English language on Yahoo! Answers?

    Seriously, people, is it that hard to write complete sentences using correct grammar and punctuation? Is it that great a challenge to communicate without ridiculous abbreviations? Is it such a Herculean task to check your spelling, perhaps by using dictionary extensions for Firefox?

    To be fair, non-native speakers are more than excused. But to see so many Americans and Britons, to name but two groups that speak the language, unable to use a semicolon is sad, sometimes even scary.

    And yes, this is the second time I post this question, I'd like to get some new answers. And, since I do believe this is a current-events kind of thing (after all, tomorrow's thinkers are writing here and way too many answers are unreadable or, due to the poor language, poor in thought), I've decided to post this question on this section of Y!A.

  • Why are we still talking about gay and straight people as if they actually exist?

    I am of the opinion that there are people who have sex and there are people who don't, end of story. So why take a technicality (say, same-sex sex) and make it into an Issue? How come social constructs (as defined by Michel Foucault) such as "gay", "straight", and other nonsense matter so much to so many people?

  • To all the African-Americans reading this...?

    Why are blacks still practicing Christianity, a religion forced upon them? Why do they continue to believe the Democrats have anything to offer except the payment of lip-service? Why is their such a great reliance upon leadership for further gains on civil rights when it is clear that such movements are only made possible by a huge amount of anonymous people working constantly for a given objective? And why, oh why, are tools like Barack Obama, JC Watts, Condelezza Rice, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Colin Powell taken seriously as representatives of blacks' interests?

    I ask this because it pains me to see that African-Americans continue to be deprived of their most basic rights whilst believing, at least to some degree, that whatever victories they had in the 50's and 60's haven't been severely damaged by those who run the US.

  • Is the US going the way of fascist Europe from the 20's and 30's?

    Islamophobia grows by the minute, kinda like antisemitism during the Wiemar Republic, and Americans know nothing of the religion. And no, I'm not Muslim, I'm Jewish. And never mind the fact that it is increasingly more akin to a police state, segregates all non-rich whites, and feels that only its own national interests count.

  • Will Americans ever discover that they don't have a real democracy?

    The Democrats and Republicans are of the same mind; elected officials hardly represent people's interests; any type of extreme opinion, especially that of the "left", is marginalized; voting has became a farce with rigged elections and the rest; and civil liberties are chipped away at every corner.

  • Why are people asking questions for which they could easily find the answers if they weren't completely lazy?

    People want to know where Darfus (sic) is, when G.W.Bush will start plan B... one hour of research and these answers should pop right up!... Jesus!
