That was powerfully written by Soraya Chemaly. I bet the politicians she addressed this to didn’t know what hit them.
It’s unsettling that someone could even compare women to farm animals and want to have them subjected to the same experiences.

Ridiculous? No. I don’t think it’s ever too late to get an education as long as one has the capacity to learn and is willing to do so. The only way you would be wasting yours or your parent’s money would be if you decided to enroll in college and make a half-hearted effort or no effort at all. Or, like Dr. Ralph said, if you pursue a major for which there is little or no demand then you will more than likely find yourself in basically the same situation before you earned a degree. However, should you decide to enter graduate school then any major that once seemed unprofitable is apt to pay dividends with a master’s or doctorate degree.
Good luck on finding scholarships and grants. I’m in the process of doing the same. The first place I’d look is on the website of the school for which you’re applying.

It’s a real shame that the people in whom we’re supposed put our trust to give protection and bring criminals to justice are corrupted morally and ethically - which actually renders them the worst criminals.
2012-03-19 18:11:26 on So my boyfriend and I got into a fight..
How long have you two been together? Has there been many fights?
It’s not uncommon for couples to get into fights. But it’s also not healthy to get into fights frequently. A couple that can get into a heated argument and kiss and make up not long afterward shows that both care and love one another too much to let anything come in between their bond.

Sometimes, laughter is the best medicine. It’s like an instant vacation.
2012-03-18 19:07:38 on I am 17 years old and I believe my parents are emotionally abusing me.
Look at the bright side: you’re near the age to be able to free yourself from your parent’s control. However, leaving the nest hastily with no job or financial stability will more than likely make living on your own rather difficult. Many teenagers your age around the globe experience a great deal of vehement quarrels with their parents because parents have a hard time adjusting to their teens new behavior and decisions. Once a teen reaches a certain age, they tend to believe they don’t have to obey their parents anymore or feel as though they are under their control. It’s a natural phase many teens go through - myself included.
I remember from the age of 16-18 that I thought my parents were deliberately try to make my life a living hell and do everything in their power to aggravate me. Looking back now I realize I was just a stubborn, immature, and ill-tempered adolescent who couldn’t see things from my parent’s view because I was too wrapped up in my own feelings and insecurities.
I would not presume to judge you for smoking, but might I ask if your parents smoke?

Accidents will happen. There’s not much you can do in the way of repairing the hole in the ceiling. At the very least you might be able to cover it up. But that won’t last for long. Your best bet would be to report it to your landlord or landlady and let them take care of it. But be advised that it will probably come out of your pocket.

Pizza. I have one in the freezer reserved for dinner tomorrow.
2012-03-16 22:11:28 on I hate being so pale!
There’s nothing wrong with being pale. After getting burned by the sun I wouldn’t want to ever try to get a tan. It’s not worth the risk. When it comes down to it, I’d rather be pale and healthy than sunburned and potentially a skin cancer victim.

I don’t think abortion could considered murder - at least not in the stricted sense of the word.
Let’s consider the following:
First: imagine that a bank robber intentionally shoots at the hand of a cashier who is reaching for an alarm button, and the bullet completely destroys the woman’s thumb. Here we have the intentional killing of innocent human life: he shot at her hand, not at her head or heart; and it was, after all, not a horse’s hoof nor a dog’s paw, but a human hand!
Notice: I once again did not use the term “a life.” Why? Because, while no one can deny that this thumb was innocent human life which was intentionally killed, the term “a life” is misused by some in the abortion debate to refer to more than merely living human tissue: it is, instead, a euphemism for “personhood.”
Second: imagine that someone has been mugged, is brain-dead, but still exists only because of life-support equipment. Then, at the request of his family, physicians unplug the patient from those machines, and he dies. The physicians are not arrested. Nor are they charged with murder. Instead, the state’s attorney upgrades the original charge against the man’s attacker from assault to murder. Why? The beating obviously did not kill the victim’s body which was alive until the machines were stopped. What did the beating kill? It killed the victim’s brain-which itself was innocent human life. Had it been his thumb, his kidney, or his lung that was killed, no charge of murder would have been contemplated. But the brain is special: it is the organ of personhood. When someone intentionally kills an innocent living, mature and fully functioning human brain, he has also killed a person; and that destruction is what constitutes “murder.”

[quote ST✪P ★ K❂NY]is miscarriage suicide?[/quote]
Only if it’s a miscarriage of justice.
Actually, I don’t believe a miscarriage is suicide, or any form thereof.
A miscarriage is simply a miscarriage. Does that make sense?

Perhaps you meant to type “abortion” but some unconscious aspect of your mind was thinking about “suicide,” which may be indicative of some hidden interest you possibly have in the realm of suicide.
