So much for State's Rights. It wasn't a right given to the states in the first place. It's kind of like marijuana. The federal government has it outlawed but some states have it legalized recreationally. The power was never given to the states, they just kind of did their own thing and flexed their...

If you really must put this out there, I would suggest you include systematic to the deliberate line. Parents have off days, and it would be a shame to penalize them for a momentary slip.

OOC: I would argue prepubescent children don’t have a “sexual orientation”. Recalling my childhood I thought girls were icky at one point, but that definitely changed.

Only young people would care about hair coloring. When you hit my age, it’s either shave it off completely or buzz it close to the scalp. If you’re losing it, doesn’t really matter what color it is, right?

As far as I know, in any case, WA committees are staffed by 'goblins' who are just presumed, as a premise for the way the WA and the game work, to be neutral and have total integrity. So it's not possible for a WA committee not to carry out its duties or to be corrupt. (OOC: They are usually called...

I still find clause 2 and 3.b problematic. You’ve a must statement for a member nation, but no penalty if they don’t. And 3.b has no repercussions for the agency if it does divulge the information. Is there other resolutions that tie in to those to offer recourse? Clause 3.d then requires that the ...

It seems every time a guy asks his girlfriend for a paternity test, she takes it personally. And any time he doesn't, his rationalization is "I know my own girlfriend." Well, that's what they all say. Why could anyone in this day and age still object to mandatory paternity testing? If it'...

Why do people feel this insatiable desire to reform the court.

You could probably just do away with the whole non civilian thing and just have two categories of medical personnel.
