There are so many……
Actually, that’s not what they’re saying. They’re saying that people are coming to work in the industry, and end up homeless when that doesn’t pan out.
The problem is that the majority of these parents have been phoning it in (as evidenced by their child’s behavior), and then result to these extreme punishments when they’ve reached the end of their rope. These punishments don’t really teach anything except to not get caught, and are more about the parents’ egos than correcting bad behavior in their children. Some of these do constitute abuse, and the rest are just (more) bad parenting. Kids don’t just one day go nuts and break all the rules, it’s a progression, and ignoring it until it’s out of control and then handing out some extreme/abusive punishment isn’t going to help the situation. And for the record, spanking teaches nothing and is a terrible behavior modifier, my parents spanked me, after the age of 5 it was a joke.
Nope, each partner is equally responsible for any potential consequences when both partners consent to having unprotected sex. One partner asking ‘do you have AIDS’ does not absolve them of personal responsibility, regardless of what the answer was and whether or not that answer is truthful. If it can be proven Johnson lied, he should be punished (though attempted murder isn’t an accurate or appropriate charge), but the other partner still bares some responsibilities.
So not a comparable analogy.
To say he has caused the death of each person he MAY have transmitted the disease to (who knows how many other people the plaintiffs slept with, they very well could have gotten the disease elsewhere) is nonsense. It’s not a walk in the park, and it could be deadly, but HIV/AIDS is no longer the ‘death sentence’ it used to be. These people, if they (start) to take care of themselves may very well live as long as they would have without the disease. I’m not say Johnson should go unpunished, but I don’t believe he should be charged with attempted murder, and certainly not without any real evidence.
So, you’re a hypocrite then? You chastise someone for speaking about other cultures, then call the way Americans live ‘twisted’.
There are only 319 million people in the US, a quarter of which are under the age of 18, so 1% of half of the remaining 240 million would be 1.2 million. Also, the vast majority of women who are sexually assaulted are not assaulted by strangers (ie while walking home, etc.). I’m not saying that women (all people actually) shouldn’t take reasonable precautions in certain situations, but living in a perpetual state of paranoia and distrust is not living.
‘Around the equator’ isn’t grammatically incorrect, though saying ‘ALL around the equator’ does sound kind of odd.
The post was ‘22 thoughts everyone has while driving through Mumbai’, what were you expecting?
No, we don’t need a boundary between men and women. That boundary has been used to systematically oppress women (and non-gender conforming men) for ages, and it’s not by accident. We need to do away with arbitrary gender rules/roles.
Oh please, spare us.
Not a logical or fair comparison.
I don’t think they’d be any more unhygienic than a regular lip/cheek piercing (probably less so, actually, since it’s open and dry), but he’ll end up with a lot of tooth decay from his mouth being dry.
No. A man drugged and then raped his wife. Marriage is not implied consent to sexual intercourse. He was found guilty by a jury, and this sentence is bullshit.
In the book it was PCP, amphetamines, and LSD.
Same way gay marriage ruins straight marriage…oh wait, it doesn’t.
Nope. Being human beings makes them equal. Idiot.
Wtf are you talking about?!? What relevance does that have in this context. If you’re trying to say we shouldn’t devote time to issues like this because other bigger issues exist, just stop. That ridiculous way of thinking basically means that no problems will ever be solved because there is always something someone deems more important. Why don’t we try and devote time to ALL issues that need solving.
Hate to break it to you, but all the bands you listed are or were on major labels run by ‘corporate chipmunk sluts’.
Plan B is much less dangerous than (teen) pregnancy. Easy access to it isn’t going to make anyone rely on it as a first line contraception. Making any kind of relatively, circumstantially safe contraceptive less available is ridiculous. I don’t think anyone is saying Plan B should be made available in lieu of education. Comprehensive sex education and access to a variety of contraceptives is the best policy. Also, plan b IS the same as traditional birth control (levonorgestrel), it’s just a larger one time dose.
It’s not that she violated the dress code, it’s that the school administrators didn’t think she adhered to their narrow and arbitrary concept of ‘femininity’. It’s bullshit, I’m sure she wasn’t the only girl wearing pants.
I don’t know if it’s hilarious or cruel, but he’s about to realize (or not) that he’s wasted his life hating people for a god that doesn’t exist.
My brother believed, until he was 19, that girls pee out of their butts. Had to show him female anatomy in a health book before he finally realized what an idiot he was.
I think she is by far the best.
Jesus Fucking Christ, the next person to post one of these stupid GIFs…..I’m putting gum in their hair!
I read an interview with Chloe where she said that she and Vincent Gallo had slept together previously, so doing it (the bj) on film wasn’t a big deal. I’ve never read anything about it not being Vincent Gallo.
Kim Deal is infinitely cooler than Courtney Love.
You don’t have to comply with any norms, and you’re free to say what ever you want, but that doesn’t mean anyone has to respect or agree with what you say. If your opinion is offensive, which it is, be prepared to deal with the consequences if you decide to publicly speak or write about them. It’s seems like so many people confuse ‘respecting one’s right to free speech’ with ‘respecting one’s use of free speech’.
You’re right, he is free to spew this garbage, but freedom of speech doesn’t absolve people from the consequences of what they say. People who are against gay marriage or gay rights ARE wrong, it’s not just a difference of opinion. When tax paying citizens are denied the same rights afforded to the rest of the population, opinions are irrelevant.
Well written?!? Maybe if he was still in elementary school. The only points that he is successfully making are that he is a bigot and, at best, a mediocre rapper.
Sexism doesn’t only exist between the two (socially accepted) genders. Sexism can exist between two people of the same gender, so I don’t really see how the gender of the commenters is relevant. Your comment is really just more of the same, it’s not as vulgar, but it’s the same sentiment.
Heartbeats cannot be detected until 6 to 7 weeks. At 16 days a fetus is a mass of cells.
You do realize there isn’t infinite space and resources on this planet. It’s unpleasant to admit, but many, many people would probably been better off had they not been born (it’s a stupid analogy anyway, if you don’t exist, you can’t be conscious of whether or not you’re better off).
Yep, and then there are the lions that kill all of the cubs/sub-adults to take over the pride. There are far more examples of animals killing their young than of groups of animals collectively raising their young. That’s great if you want to raise every unwanted child, I don’t, so I don’t judge people who choose abortion, and strongly support the right to choose.
My sole goal in life is to die and come back as an animal that kills Jack Hanna.
