Rhys Meyers was an odd choice to play Henry VIII in the Tudors.

I like the series but he doesn't really resemble the young Henry VIII. He grew on me over time in the role but initially I was quite surprised at the casting.

Although you haven't said otherwise, he still did a very well done job when playing King Henry VIII.

Take Mexico instead. It would be easier to take Mexico instead of tightening the border. TADA ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION FROM MEXICO RESOLVED.

I give my seat up to the elderly and anyone with an injury or a disability. I won't, however, give up my seat simply because someone is the opposite gender.
Sure you can say that chivalry is dying, but it doesn't mean people have stopped helping each other. It just means that people are being treated equally.
Only holding doors open for women is chivalrous, holding doors open for anyone is good manners.

Don't forget pregnant women. I also give my seat to parents with a small child, but I don't know if that is a thing.

We should make this a thing. Just add 'and wait until my comment gets deleted' at the end of each comment.

I would say something offensive, but I'm scared of this new admin. And wait until my comment gets deleted.

I'm not against you, he is pretty sick, but most of the characters are fine with murder. Arya counts who she wants to kill every night. For the wedding of Tyrion, I can't say anything good about it except how cruel it was. Something is revealed about the wedding which makes it even worse.

Yeah, our school has a smart board in every room and the teachers either don't use it properly or don't use it at all. It's really a waste since most teachers use ELMO.

Well, I've only met three Americans in my life, but they moved here to Canada when they were young. Anyway, they were very kind, funny and charismatic people. I don't know about the majority of Americans since I haven't met many of them, but there are nice Americans.

I have probably met a ton of Americans on the internet, but I don't really know them.

Well, there are Muslims wishing to build a religious centre (which has an area for Muslims to pray) a few blocks down where the World Trading Centre used to stand. Many people oppose it. In response to the attack on 9/11, the US army have invaded Iraq and destroyed entire areas which have included mosques.

At least, this is what I know and can be proven wrong. However, this is what the post is referencing.

Well let's take a look at what normal is: "Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected." The majority of people are straight, or heterosexual. Therefore the minority of people are homosexual. Making it not normal.

Did I say that lesbians are evil or bad? Did I say anything bad at all about them? No. I didn't

If you wouldn't mind, what is your argument on why it is normal?

Well, the definition of conforming is: "Behave according to socially acceptable conventions or standards: "the pressure to conform"." I automatically assumed that you were saying homosexuals were not behaving acceptable. I can be wrong in this and I do admit at being the worst at debating. I came here to learn and I would wish you to be gentle when replying (so far, you've been kind and in no way rude to me.)

I've only ever heard this argument from people saying homosexuality is a bad thing which is why I jumped to conclusions. I let my emotions get the best of me since I constantly have to defend gays to my family (along with other ethnic groups, religions, etc.)

Again, I am still learning. If you would do so kindly to pick any flaws in my arguments, it would only help me learn.

Side note: Here is another argument which popped into my head, but was for sure to have some flaws. If the majority of people are a certain weight, then would it be fair to say anyone not in that weight are not normal? This has flaws and I wish to learn. However, if you do not feel like being kind or showing me the flaws, you don't have to. Thank you for your time.

I didn't mean to imply that everyone who does is a ** ** and I'm sorry that it came across like that. I just meant that people need to take responsibility for their actions and if they aren't ready for the consequences that come with it, then they shouldn't do it.

I'm sure this girl can make a responsible decision by doing whatever she feels is the best for her well-being. Whether abortion or going through with it, it is a decision that is never made too easily. There are consequences of having an abortion as well as going through with the pregnancy. It is her, and only her, final decision that should matter unless it poses a very dangerous health risk.
