People who blame things on feminism mean feminazism, not what you're talking about.

^this. feminists who truly want equality are fine in most people's books. the ones we have a problem with are the "feminists" who think all men should be castrated and enslaved to the "superior" women. basially, a reversal of pre-industrial age and some.
tl;dr extremists make the group look bad. whats new.

um wat. i mean, i agree with you that cross country is almost always just running in loops, but track is running a portion of or number of laps of a very specific rectange with semicircles on 2 ends.

** is a huge commitment that people no longer take seriously. It should be kept special for someone you really love, not a way to have fun just for the sake of it. If you want to talk about the evolution of **, it has evolved from a sacred way to profess your love to someone to doing it just to have fun.

uhm excuse me. when was ** ever a "sacred way to profess your love"?? now, i don't know if you've ever picked up a real history book, but that has never been what is to 99% of people. Prior to civilization we were by definition animals and appropriately. prostitution was one of the first professions and has only sort-of gone away in the last 50 years, making it one of (if not the) longest-running professions. prostitution and interation with its practitioners also only became stigmatized within the last couple hundred years. in some places like japan, some prostitutes even were very highly regarded within the society. so if anything, this idea of ** being a "sacred way to profess your love" is a primarily judeo-christian construct that wasn't even taken seriously by anyone until the past few hundred years.
also, if you don't think ** is for pleasure, you're either a virgin and don't get what you're missing, or you've had really bad **.

Many many women who are over 19 have abortions, for various reasons. Many women over 40 have abortions after Amniocentesis determines that the fetus is defective.

i didn't say 19 anywhere, i said mid-to-late 20's. that means 25-29. people under 30 account for a large portion of abortions because they can't fully comprehend consequences and can't support a child.
Also, are you saying hopelessly deformed children shouldn't be aborted and the pregnancy should be carried to term at risk of the adult, and make them have a child who has very little hope for an independent, successful, and happy future?
seems legit.

Hey I noticed on your profile that you want book suggestions, but I can't message you so I'll put them here.
The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud. They're fantasy, and are some of my favourite books of all time. Very cleverly written.
Daemon ( I don't remember the author's name, but the sequel is called Freedom TM). This one's very hard to describe. It will make you rethink how you see the Internet and technology. It's fictional, but written so realistically you could see it taking place in the nearby future.

I find that most books like that end up being really good. For example, Harry Potter started off slow imo but it was to provide the background information that was necessary to make the rest of the book good.

If you genuinely want to learn lots of complex words like what they use in government, it's not that hard. Complex things can be broken down, and words are no different. Read a few pages of a word root or word part list, i find the best way to remeber is try to use those roots that day.
Also, reading hard books is the only way to guarantee you'll pick up new vocabulary. They're hard for you because you don't know a lot of the words, so learn them by reading+google/dictionary.
As far as amazing books, I'm currently obsessed with "a song of ice and fire", the series Game of Thrones is based off of. It's very unique in the fact that you have chapters from pretty much every major player's perspetive, so "good" and "evil" are extremely relative.
"Little brother", fahrenheit 451, and books like that have been a large part of my reading lately. Also LotR other than the main trilogy. The Silmarillion is probably one of the most confusing books i've ever read.

For me, I consider that bunch of cells that you're aborting life. I also think that people shouldn't be having ** at such a young age if they know they would be unable to raise a child. Yes, there's contraception, but everyone knows the risks and everyone knows that it's not 100% effective. I'm just really anti-abortion, unless it's under the circumstance of something such as rape, because that person has not willingly subjected to . My point: if you're going to have , then understand the possibilities, and if you don't think you could handle a baby, then don't have **.

This argument is probably the one that bugs me the most from the pro-life side of things. You are aware that it's widely accepted that the frontal lobe, which deals with consequences and related stuff, is not fully developed until someone's mid-to-late 20's? This argument basically punishes teenagers purely for being biologically teenagers, entirely out of their control and *cough* WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT *cough*.

just to put being hit in the balls hard into perspective, there's a standardized pain measurement (like inches or cm, but for pain) that takes fancy machines to measure and i forget the name of just now. anyway, some tests were run, iirc the instantaneous pain of a guy being hit in the balls hard is *multiple times* higher than the highest point the average woman reached during labor, which is generally the single most painful thing a woman will ever experience.
Also it really can cause permanent damage, it takes a surprisingly small amount of force to effectively explode a ****.

no, instead they've added a new "seen by" feature in groups where you can hover over it and see who's viewed every post and when, and they have a track record of using group as pilot tests for the rest of facebook

an old lamp. When I rubbed it a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there."
"That's brilliant!" says the waitress... "Most people would wish for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!"
"That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man.

The waitress asks, "But, sir, what's with the ostrich?"
The man sighs, pauses, and answers, "My second wish was for a tall chick with long legs who agrees with everything I say."
