I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

    Usually Christians are viewed

    as the ones who try to force their beliefs down EVERYONE'S throat yet it seems that some (not all I'm not saying all of them do this so don't blast me with hate) people who think differently for whatever reason go into EP groups about religion and comment on the stories being...

    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...

    As a woman feminism offends me.

    Just because you aren't willing to work as hard as others to make the same pay doesn't give you a right to wine about it. And for those that want to run around shirtless and let their chest hang out and call foul on men- no one wants to see your boobs in walmart!!! There are...

    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.

    Today Is Veteran's Day, So Happy Veteran's Day.... Not.

    Today is the day I'm supposed to thank a veteran. Thank them for protecting my freedoms, or something. Hmmm, I think I'll pass. How about: Thanks, but no thanks. It's not that I hate veterans, it's that I'm ambivilant towards them. Let me be clear: I hate the system. The system...

    Saying "African American" is more racist

    than saying "black". Here's why... It makes two huge racial assumptions. First, it assumes that every black US citizen is African. So even if their family lived in say Brazil or the UK for several generations, they're still called "African". You could argue that their origins...

    Rascism: a Message to My Generation

    I wish that atheists would leave us alone.

    Just because you as an atheist don't believe in any religion, it does not mean you have to attack us who do believe. Converse with us, fine, but be mindful that not everyone shares your views. The same way you do not share our views. I am a Christian but I don't believe in...

    Female Pedophiles
