I approve of the comments that people are leaving on that page ripping the whole idea of demanding an apology

Posted by: BSmurf on May 11, 13:32 in response to Tanker's post Offended easily much? Online petition to scold Marvel for...

The line, "He's adopted" was not implicating that adopted people are bad. Thor was trying to distance himself from Loki's misdeeds. It was the equivalent of saying, "We're family, but not THAT close to one another."

Offended easily much? Online petition to scold Marvel for using a single word in The Avengers. Not the Q word but the A word. *spoiler* Tanker May 11, 13:12

not that I take this seriously at all, but Thor did stand up for Loki for the most part...felt it was a private family matter...hehe {nm} tealfan May 11, 13:19

The fact is that 16% of all serial killers are adopted. elchan May 11, 13:21

I read somewhere that 84 % of those freaks were raised by their natural parent(s)... {nm} JMT-NL May 11, 13:25

So.. The odds say that serial killers come from non-adopted homes??? {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:25

Truer quantitative analysis would be what % of all adopted kids were serial killers and what % of all non-adopted kids were serial killers. Catzan May 11, 13:35

The rate of adoption in the US is 3%, so for 16% of serial killers to be adopted means adopted serial killers are over represented. elchan May 11, 13:35

It actually could still be an anomaly.. Are there stats on adoptive environments over representing in other maladaptive behaviors? {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:40

Most current behaviorists would say that there are biological components involved that over represent in serial killers too {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:42

its comes from the fact that most sk's are abused, which happens more often in a family with non-related parents. {nm} jwammo May 11, 13:44

based on what data? {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:52

you can look at the references in this link. I assume you don't need the data that most sk's are abused. jwammo May 11, 13:56

notice i didn't say adopted, btw. the group that are most prone to abuse are foster children. {nm} jwammo May 11, 13:59

Ok.. You were answering a separate question then.... We can let it go.. Lets talk movies :) {nm} dioneta May 11, 14:06

They're just stats. Here's an article with a paragraph. elchan May 11, 13:46

I approve of the comments that people are leaving on that page ripping the whole idea of demanding an apology BSmurf May 11, 13:32

Hmmm...just think of all the ancient cultures we can demand apologies of for poorly representing the foibles of one group or another... Catzan May 11, 13:40

What the freck is wrong with people.... Its a joke, and it was funny. The fact that people actually get offended by this makes me idrom May 11, 13:42

What if he would have said "He's gay" instead? {nm} PRodQuanta May 11, 14:11

That would make more sense. {nm} elchan May 11, 14:13

What's the difference, though? {nm} PRodQuanta May 11, 14:18

Why? STONYRN May 11, 21:47

How does being gay have any relevance? Why did that even pop in your head? {nm} STONYRN May 11, 20:20

Because it's more or less the same as calling someone adopted. You don't say "gay" to mean "bad", just like you should say "adopted". PRodQuanta May 12, 08:53

"should' should be "shouldnt" above {nm} PRodQuanta May 12, 08:54

hahaha! Loki himself signed the petition, if you go to the link, scroll to the bottom an you'll see his name LOL! {nm} nicadmous May 11, 14:46

almost wish the person who posted that would say that he was kidnapped and not adopted lol {nm} nicadmous May 11, 15:06

What percentage of kidnappers were adopted? {nm} elchan May 11, 15:11

WOW, what a complete failure at comprehension! Thor said Loki's "adopted" so that he'd dissociate himself from Loki. That is all. NM blinkuldhc May 13, 09:41
