Default What weird odd beliefs have you heard?

I will begin:

I heard once a woman (like60years old) say that masturbation is bad, cause everytime you masturbate by thinking of someone that person feels it (whatever she meant with that), so what she was suggesting it is sort of a ...long distance telepatic sexual harrasment?

If that where true, i dont know what would happen to known-all-over-the-globe hot celebrities... Or any of my crushes for that matter

---------- Post added 18th Aug 2013 at 03:53 AM ----------

Another one: "the pope is not a christian, the pope is a catholic" with is like saying a potato is not food, potato is a edible vegetable lol

---------- Post added 18th Aug 2013 at 03:56 AM ----------

Another: " having sex in the bathroom is a great injustice, because the bible says that sex is only on the bed" (the bible doesnt says that anywhere actually xD)

On the topic of masturbation, I'm pretty sure a common rumour is that masturbating too much will make you blind. It's become more of a joke than anything else now because of how illogical it is.

That homosexuals recruit young kids. Because how else would someone be gay, right?

I hate the belief that homosexuals will raise more homosexuals.

Right, in the same way the straight parents raise straight kids.

That by being gay, my gayness is rubbing off on my best friend and making her gay as well. Also that I want to rape her because I'm a lesbian and she's a girl. -_- Homophobes...

There is a widely held belief that humans are humane. That is an exception, not the rule.

I see lots of humans, but little humanity.

That the Illumanti is responsible for the gay agenda and plan on taking over the world through the LGBT rights movement.

This op-ed. It's a very...novel argument against gay marriage. Normally stuff like this makes my blood boil, but this thing was just too funny.

I think this was just a ruse to stop kids wanking. Dave Allen did a great sketch in which he described how he was taught to sleep with his arms crossed across his chest so that the Lord would see that he'd made the sign of the cross and would protect him. His freind looked at him in disgust and said, 'It's just to stop you wanking, you idiot.'

That, as a homosexual, you're automatically attracted to everyone of the same sex.

No, believe it or not, chauvinistic straight male douchebag, I'm not hot for your cheerleader girlfriend.

I saw someone say legalizing gay marriage will raise abortion rates.

I've heard a few eyebrow raising ones about Trans* and the bathroom.

- By allowing young Transgender kids to use the bathroom pedophiles will abuse the privileged and go after your children. And trust me, I've heard this argument more than once. Because all Grade Schools allow random strange grown-ups to enter a school and use a kids bathroom with children during school hours.

- Transgender women only really want to use the girls bathroom to rape others. Cause Lord knows the first thing I think of when I enter a restroom is who's gonna be the first to take this thing I can't stand between my legs. It's around the same logic line that all lesbians want to rape straight women in the bathroom

I have a few more, but they're along the same tinfoil hat "DER!" line of thinking.

Well I learned a few ridiculous things today, but the top 2 that will probably forever crown are these:

1. Gay people can't marry because you can't refrigerate homosexuality
2. Gay people can't marry because they don't face each other during sex.

Those will probably be the crowning arguments. I've never laughed so hard at an argument before. Not even twice.

But...but it says so right in this ancient book that in no way has been tampered with in 2000 years! Cause something written in an era with chariots should totally dictate how we live our lives today.
