Topic: Why Utah is making men pay women's pregnancy costs
Replies: 360

I am...not sure what I think about this. My initial reaction was it is better than nothing, but then I wondered about men who do not want to be a father while the mother is unwilling to have an abortion. It is a matter of personal responsibility. If they didn't want to pay for a child, they should ...

More than 6 out of 10 Americans, or 61%, oppose allowing small business to refuse products or services to gay or lesbian people if doing so violates the vendors' religious beliefs, while 33% believe businesses should be able to deny services on religious grounds. I wonder to what extent this actual...

I've been reading about it but I'm still pretty confused about the doctrine of the eucharist. I understand that the orthodox consider it to be a holy mystery, but would it be against dogma to say that the real presence of Christ in the bread and wine is of a purely spiritual nature? That is a commo...

I was not a fan of President Bush. Only referred to him as a sock puppet and the shrub. He like other Presidents basically played J.D. Salinger and only appeared from time to time to promote something. He actually gave an interview and was asked about the attack on the capitol. For all the jokes of...

Indeed. We have to show that we as a society will absolutely not tolerate this sort of degeneracy. I believe the murderer has similar attitudes about society and "degeneracy". Except that the women he killed, if they even were in prostitution at all, were probably there due to poverty or ...

If the women who were killed were sex workers, they were probably there due to being trafficked, poverty, or both. Perhaps in stead of blaming them for his moral degeneracy, the killer should have taken a good, long look in the mirror. But instead he has compounded his guilt and now it seems like th...

I think 6 people shot for their race as part of a rising trend of hate is pretty significant. That being said, someone already made a thread relating more specifically to the hate crime murders in Atlanta that I’m waiting for the mods to merge this with. The folks in Atlanta weren't shot for their ...

Eh. Get a car. Why would I get a dangerous, polluting, expensive, burdensome to maintain, time-consuming, traffic-stuck transportation device when I can ride fast, clean, cheap, reliable, safe trains and metros and read a book during the transit ? What if you could buy a non-polluting electric car?

It is a neutral term, whether or not its derogatory depends on context. Plenty of people proudly consider themselves to be progressives.

Also, I don't think it is exactly fair to say cities are lacking in good culture when they are home to some many art museums, symphonies, and historical sites.

Every city I’ve lived in requires you to drive to get anywhere so it’s really no different than the suburbs. Hell some cities, like Mesa, are just giant suburbs. Basically I like the suburbs.

I understand where it would seem unfair to expell children from school because of their parents' actions, but perhaps the children would have been better off being raised by different parents.

Is it really sex work if you don't get paid for it though? There is a lot of unpaid work that goes on. And I think the *feminist* thread is the best place to talk about that. If someone finds sex to be so unpleasant that they will not do it without pay, then I would think that person was better off...
