This reminds me of the John Green quote from Paper Towns:
“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for plannning. No time for a future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future--you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college."
I don't understand how this post has such a positive score, when it's essentially saying someone who chooses not to have sex is stronger in that regard than someone who chooses to have sex. When is it ever okay to judge people by their personal, sexual lives? Virginity isn't an accomplishment. It's an abstract concept that some people choose to put value in.
I have to imagine it would be a lot harder to explain that we're using the overwhelming majority of crops grown in the country to feed livestock. Factory farming is the biggest waste of food in the world. The amount of crops necessary to produce a single eight ounce steak could feed about forty-five people.
World hunger could be eradicated if factory farming were to end. By consuming meat, you're funding the primary reason that those African children are starving.
Not me... I always saw him as sort of solitary and celibate, which is really what he was after the whole Grindelwald heartbreak. Coming to terms with the fact that the love of your life is evil as you're watching him torture your brother, possibly kill your sister, and attempt to start a genocide can really make a man give up on the whole idea of "romantics".
I personally would rather be a river than a strait. But that's just me.
Your teacher could've just as easily shown you Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer. The point is that it DOESN'T MATTER. The fetus has just as great a chance of being a horrible person as being a good person, so that shouldn't even be on anyone's radar screen. It's honestly a stupid discussion to have, and your teacher's presentation was biased, manipulative, and just plain dumb. Abortion shouldn't have anything to do with what the future of the fetus might look like in the decades to come; it's about the here-and-now situation of the mother.
Yeah, but it would suck if fires were like they are the Sims where if you forgot to buy a smoke detector, you've basically condemned your entire family to either death or misery, because you can't stop screaming at the fire long enough to call the fire department or get your baby out of the kitchen. Pools also suck in the Sims. I have a two year old cousin who can hoist himself up on the side of the pool, but heaven forbid a Sim at the peak of his physical fitness doesn't have a ladder...
It'd be awkward if you walked in and there was someone else in there crying though. How would that work? Would you awkwardly back out and wait your turn? Would there be a line outside of the 'crying room' full of people frantically gulping and blinking, or would there be people on all sides of the room breaking down into tears? How about stalls? Would there be plenty of tissues and a mirror so we could touch up our makeup?
These are the questions...
Not doing something that makes you happy in the face of opportunity for the sole reason that you want to be able to say that you resisted it is stupid, not strong. There are plenty of legitimate reasons not to have sex, but it doesn't make you any stronger than those who do.
Are you Amelia Bedelia?
One: You're not a carnivore. You're an omnivore.
Two: Yes, you can be an animal lover and still eat meat. It's wonderful that you've saved animals in the past. However, there is hypocrisy in the fact that you love animals, and yet you continue to pay the companies that force mass amounts of animals to live short, miserable lives before savagely murdering them.
What's wrong with you?
Nickelback is terrible.
The drinking age in the U.S. should be lowered to eighteen. Twenty-one seems outrageously random to me, and I think all legal adults should be allowed to drink; that's the way it is in the vast majority other countries. Not all that controversial, but I can't bring this up with any adults in my life because -obviously- my stance means I'm a drinker.
If a "promiscuous" woman likes to have sex, there's nothing wrong with her going out and getting laid. Like really who cares? As long as she's safe and not getting in the way of anyone's relationship, it's really fine.
Why are people so invested in each others' sex lives? Whether they're fucking someone of their own gender or just fucking a lot, it's none of your business. If your biggest issue is with someone you don't know doing something that hurts no one, you need to go out and get yourself a life.
How do you know? Tom Riddle was pretty handsome in his day... I bet he knew how to get down.
