Who is used when it is a subject, whom for an object.

So if we rephrase your sentence: they almost all were related. --> Correct. They= subject; therefore 'who,' not whom.

If you're not sure, just replace it with another pronoun. He, she, and they= who; Him, her, and them= whom.

I do, however, mind being downvoted and not corrected. Srsly. Am I wrong? Or are you just being twits?

Good lord, I agree so much with this post. I face-palmed so hard during an argument that I almost wound up in the ER (not really). We were arguing about sexism, and she kept saying it's impossible for men to be discriminated against, and kept using the word "reverse-sexism".

I was thinking the exact same thing when I first heard about it. I knew gun control was going to come up, and I maintain that it is a symptom, not the cause, of what happened.

Guns can be obtained from any number of illegal methods, so really, I don't even think gun control should be a part of the dialogue about this. Or if it is, it should be a small part of the dialogue.

I feel as though I need to specify: the kid DID actually have arms, he'd just pulled them inside of his sweatshirt.

I am not, in fact, making fun of a handicapped child.

In case there was that confusion.

It was easy for me to quit for about a month or so, but then if I had a really bad day, I'd go out and buy a pack and start again. I'd smoke for a month, hate myself, and throw whatever cigarettes I had away. Rinse and repeat for about two years.

I'm not sure if this is true, but I vaugly remember a history teacher saying that in the Victorian era (and around there) that it was pretty common to marry cousins- especially in royalty, who(m?) almost all were related to each other.

I don't see it as a sign of progressing or digressing. I think the world just goes through trends, a lot are bound to repeat themselves.

Can anyone tell me how to use whom?

My history teacher did that junior year. We were doing a brief history on world religions and he did some guided meditation as part of the eastern religions section.

Yes and no. Starting from low a flat going up one octave it's: 3rd position, 2nd, 1st, 7th (this is REALLY far out, and impossible unless you have longish arms), 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st (or 6th), 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, 3rd.

So the positions go in order, but you still have to remember where to start.

The hard part about the trombone is that it's like the violin. If you push the slide out too far (or not far enough) you'll end up being either sharp or flat.

Last time I gave blood they asked if I'd gotten a tattoo in the last 6 months. I said yes, and when I told them where, they said, "That's ok; that place is safe," and were going to take it anyway.

They ended up not taking it because I'd been to China in the past 6 months as well, though. >_>

I think it's kind of cool-- like the singer is letting you participate in the concert with them. I've seen singers on stage start crying when the audience starts singing. If they actually enjoy making music, it must be very moving to know that there are thousands of people who like and appreciate what you've made.

That will only happen when there is true social equality. Unfortunately, black people tend to have poorer health coverage than whites, women make less money than men, and homosexuals are still widely discriminated against and in some areas aren't protected by law.

It'd be nice if these things didn't exist, but these problems won't be fixed if we ignore them.

I find the need for a muscular body shallow. As long as you're healthy and maintain your body there is no need to body build.

Eh. I kind of agree with you. I think some people want a muscular body because if they feel good about their bodies, then they feel good about themselves in general. But there are definitely guys who body build to show off, and that's shallow.

This would be absolutely terrifying. The only thing keeping you from floating away into infinite, dark, cold, airless space is a thin cord. Astronauts are some of the bravest human beings, <strong>amirite?</strong>

A jetpack would make me feel better, I think. Because then you have some kind of controllable propulsion. But if all you have is a cord, and it breaks, you're ****.

Not only are men shamed if they are more feminine, sometimes girls are shamed for having feminine interests as well. It's like "How can you wear makeup/be interested in fashion/be a housewife??"
Because somehow people's interests make them somehow sexist or non-progressive.
The problem isn't that some women WANT to wear makeup or have feminine jobs like nurses and stuff.. the problem is the EXPECTATION that all girls SHOULD want these things. And the problem is that feminine things are somehow "reserved" for only girls.

Feminine things are "reserved" for girls because we historically have less power in society than men do. So if a girl likes masculine things, it's perceived as having a benefit-- it helps their social standing by increasing their power in the public sphere. Conversely, if a boy likes feminine things, he is, in a way, lowering himself on the social ladder.

And you're right about the problem being expectations, not desire. Despite the fact that I told him I wanted to go to grad school and make something of myself in the academic field, my ex indicated to me (in no uncertain terms) that he wanted me to quit working in a few years to raise a kid. (There are many reasons he is my EX, and this would be one of the bigger ones.)

Don't ask how or why, because I'm not really sure, but the people who used to own my house were fox farmers (or something like that), so there are a lot of foxes around my house.

The cubs are adorable, but did you ever hear them playing? They sound so scary! Actually, foxes in general sound pretty scary.
