The findings are based on an analysis of hundreds of millions of comments from over 6.3 million Reddit users.

    If you don’t understand one of those positions is objectively bad then that says a whole lot about you.

      To be fair, while I agree with the viewpoint here, I don’t think there’s anything that’s objectively good or bad, just morals and beliefs in a society. I hope that’s what the other chap is getting at.

      Something we consider to be 100% bad, like physically hitting a misbehaving child, may in fact be seen as acceptable to people from another society elsewhere in the world, or in a different time period.

      It’s all just about perspective, good and bad are relative constructs.

      I’m still gonna stick to being our societies version of good, fascists and xenophobes etc can go screw, but I’m under no illusion that my beliefs or morals are objectively immutably good.

      Just food for thought is all!

        Bigotry such as the transphobic rhetoric the OP of this thread was referencing is objectively bad. And I have zero interest in your attempt to defend child abuse.

        Aha! You are bad because of the way you think. The classic.

        Yes, dumb too.
