Remember the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) issue that was posted not too long ago? Change.org has a new petition up submitted by the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) that is working against the use of electric shock therapy and hopes, with the added weight of organizations across the globe, to close down JRC's practice with its efforts.

This is a problem, and I am more than willing to have discussions about this, and talk about what can be done to change these things if you bring it up as its own topic.

If you really cared about men's issues, you'd bring it up at other times, not only when we're discussing women's issues. That's not you caring about men's issues. That's you not wanting to talk about women's issues because you want everything to be about men." Amirite?

+12Today's youth has more information at their fingertips than our parents encountered in their entire lifetimes. They are uniquely positioned to change the course of humanity for the good, and it is our job as leaders to ensure they develop the critical thinking skills to do so.
