    The Other Double Standard

    I would like to start by saying I believe everyone here is well within their rights to talk to whoever they choose and are free to not associate with anyone they choose. That being said. I am finding online especially on sites like this more and more ladies taking the stance...

    Primary/elementary Education

    I believe that there should be classes that very clearly educate chlidren as to what is a 'good touch' and what is a 'bad touch', what is appropriate and inappropriate behaviour by adults, siblings and other people they are in contact with towards themselves.  I feel...

    Crime and Punishment I’ve never understood

    why so many families of crime victims get upset when a suspect in the case is released from custody, isn’t prosecuted, or isn’t convicted when they are prosecuted due to a lack of evidence. They seem to be so fixated on a particular suspect or defendant that initially...

    What If . . .

    To those who believe that people need to subscribe to a particular dogma in order to stop from going to h*ll: Stop trying to 'save' the masses and focus instead on your own 'salvation,' whatever that may be. I for one don't think I need to be saved or find jesus...I need to be...

    ISIS is not a religious organization.

    Yeah, I Said It And I'd Say It Again

    Parents shouldn't let their little girls dress like grown women. Wearing skimpy clothes and make up draws the wrong kind of attention to little girls. Stop dressing them up like they're going clubbing or starring in a Britney Spears video. It's not cute! Yeah, I said it and I...

    Muslims are treated poorly

    because a lot of times on the news, they specifically state the group of people committing the crime were Muslims. if the standards were the same for other major religions, it'd make those religions look bad too. there's good and bad in every group. stop discriminating.
