It's like you're implying that being straight is better than being gay, at least that's what I understood.

I hate when people say things like, "real women have curves." I'm naturally skinny; I couldn't get fat if I wanted to. Does that mean I'm Nita real woman? And I hate when people try to blame my body type for eating disorders. It makes me really sad that people starve themselves, but it is in no way whatsoever my fault.

I'm not saying they should, but to them it isn't disgusting. America and Canada would imprison them, but in their society, it is allowed. They believe that is what they should do. In China, there is the one child per family law (I believe). People still have more than one child and abandon all except one. In America, we see it as cruel. In China, it is seen as normal to regulate population. In the Middle Ages (completely different), the patriarch of the family and his name were permanently dishonored if her daughter or son did something wrong. It is all in perspective. You say it's wrong, a Muslim father might say "I'm defending my honor and my right to a good afterlife." I am in the boat that they shouldn't be allowed to do it, it's disgusting that they do it, but it isn't disgusting that they agree to it.

Yes, cultures are different, but there are some basic human rights.

with all do respect, but you're a **** idiot... some priests molests young children, but you don't find a muslim dissing their religion.... if some idiots kill their daughters and happens to be muslims that does not reflect their religion...IGNORANCE is something you need to get rid off

Honor killings are done in a culture and a part of the world that just happens to be Muslim. It's not a reflection of the entire religion and it's practice around the world.

So... There should be no **** ed in schools and if the parent doesn't want to teach it to the child, then oh well, they're screwed, they didn't need to know how to be safe anyways.

The class OP is talking about should never exist. Every kids' parents should be able to tell them about these things as they need to know it, not as a class in high school.

Maybe they SHOULD, but the question isnt what they should do, it's what they actually do. That's like saying there should be no **** ed in schools because the parents should teach them or they should learn by experience.

The US needs to stop trying to take care of everyone else and start taking care of its own people first. Why did we dump so much money and soldiers into Iraq and Afghanistan when there was so much reform needed in our own country?

If you just put on a little, everyone is like, "Oh you look so good without makeup!" But if you don't put on any at all, people are like, "Are you ok? Are you sick?"

The role of the government is to follow the mandate of the people. Most of the people do not support these bills. I guess now we will see who is really in control.

I had waiters offer me the kids menu until I was like 16 because I look so young. I'm 18 now and I might even still be able to get away with it. People say I look 14, so 13 wouldn't be a stretch really.

Or paying athletes millions of dollars, they don't need that money.

The athletes and other entertainers make so much money because so many people pay to see them play. If people find that to be a problem, maybe they should give fifty dollars to charity instead of going to a football game.

So basically you're insulting the entire educational standards of a country because they dont teach their students what YOU think is relevant? Also, is an educational system one's only source of learning and cultural enrichment? Certainly not!

Just because students in America cannot find Afghanistan on a map does not mean their culture teaches ignorance. Do you think most students in Afghanistan could find, say, Uruguay on a map?
