Why are all the realistic challenges geared against corporations and for environmentalism? I think realistic 6 should incorporate something about environmental lobbyists who pay off politicians to get laws passed that limit our freedom. Realistic 7 is a downright lie, conservatives believe in independent thought, especially from governments. I do not think it is a big deal if same sex couples roam the streets, but I think it IS a big deal when they petition the right to marry so they can claim the same tax benefits as a legitimate family that needs it. Believe me, if there was no money involved, homosexual people would not want the right to get married. I just don't like the liberal slant this site has.

Does it really bother you that much? If you don't like the challenges, don't do them.
Hint: The challenges aren't 100% serious...you realize that, right? Sure, they have a total left-wing slant, but they often extend it even farther to the left more for comedic value than anything else.

I don't really like the ultra-liberal tinge of the missions either, but it's not like we're a militant group of rabid hippies, because although the challenges do have a liberal feel to them, they satirize it at the same time, as Sanddbox pointed out.
tldr: We're not promoting a certain viewpoint over another.
