The Leftist Assembly Regional Message Board

Antinios wrote:Regarding the point stated above that we should ignore animal rights because we have yet to progress enough in terms of human rights, I'm not sure if this is your intention but the argument of "us not having enough so we shouldn't help others that we don't believe to be the same category as us" is often used to discriminate against others. One example of this are TERFs who try to screw over or ignore trans rights using the argument stated above. I don't see why we have to segregate ourselves into exclusionary groups when we can advance the rights of everyone together. There are many other forms of entertainment and having blood sports as one of them is unnecessary. One does not have to watch others suffer just to get enjoyment, especially when said beings that suffer don't necessarily want to partake in such activities. Just because the rights of humans are not improved doesn't mean that we have to be against the resolution.

The difference b/t TERFS and animals is that trans/enby people are just as morally considerable as women, whereas animals are indefinitely less morally considerable than humans, perhaps being almost equivalent per the most radical of views.

I don't think you got my point. As disgusting as it is, for TERFs, people identifying as trans/enby are not morally considerable as them. Another example would be fascists thinking that other races are not as morally considerable as they are. And in the case of this conversation, people believe that animals are less morally considerable as humans. Just because they are not one of us doesn't mean that we shouldn't try to ensure that they are not abused.

WA Recommendation

Ban On Forced Blood Sports AGAINST

This resolution is obviously a contentious debate for our region. However, after seeing Antinios reasoning, I am recommending a vote against due to the loophole wherein individuals may exploit the religious exemption to abuse animals.

In Unity,
-Grey

Imma copy Ban on Forced Blood Sports and improve it for later voting.
For now, I am voting against it cause of loopholes.

Legislation Voted Upon

The Legislative Process Amendment (Neutral Signatories) has passed in the GA by a vote of 7-0. The votes were as follows:

FOR

Antinios: "It clarifies the bill such that the signatory does not necessarily have to support the bill which could have been a source of confusion if not amended."

Argentigrad: "This is a simple change that will allow any MGA to become the signatory to a bill that they don't necessarily agree with, but that they believe is worthy of discussion."

Dyl: "I'm in favour of clarifying that the signatory doesn't need to support the bill itself."

Kavagrad: "This is an important clarification to prevent a future source of inefficiency in the legislative process."

New Samon: "It includes a clarification so the signatory could provide anything they think is worthwhile up for debate without agreeing."

Nottinhaps: "This clarification means that all bills worthy of discussion will make its way to the General Assembly."

Sincadenas: "This makes it possible for MGAs who disagree with a bill but see it as worth debating to be signatories. As is, the bill could cause confusion or cause the MGA to fear their position being misinterpreted."

Legislation Introduced

Next in the Legislative Queue is the Election Amendment (Uniform Language), which is being introduced as a Minor Amendment under Clause 2.a of the Legislative Process Act.

Overview


Purpose

The amendment seeks to standardise the language in the act.

Implementation

The amendment shall be implemented immediately.
