Genocide and wars and robberies and abuse of all kinds, destruction of ecosystems, destruction of species just for their home lands to use, all those arent quite the same as a lion catching an antelope. Their murder is at least justified, but for humans it's just arrogance and unfair claims of the planet
A class of kindergarteners can fight occasionally and play together and still be at peace, but if an 8th grader comes in and stabs half of them and then uses the rest as chairs for himself, that's not peace anymore.
I disagree because I don't think that more guns is going to deal with the issue. People shouldn't have to carry guns to feel safe. Most criminals turn to crime because of things like drug addiction, poverty, etc. And most of the gun massacres are done by mentally disturbed people who legally own the weapons they use. More guns isn't going to solve those problems.
Oh my lord. White people and straight people are not oppressed. We learn A LOT about white history is school. For example, AP classes. AP World history or AP European history. No AP African history. No AP Latino history. No AP Asian history. Straight pride? What? I'm free to tell anyone I'm straight without fear of being shunned or kicked out. One or two bad experiences with the oh so scary colored people does not constitute oppression. Most scholarships end up going to white kids anyway, yes, there are a few scholarships that end up going specifically to POC. And it angers me when people say "I knew I would have gotten that scholarship over that stupid minority kid! wahh!" How the fuck do you know? You're not automatically smarter because you're white. You know what? How come a Latino/black person can't be successful without having someone saying "IT'S ONLY CUZ OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!11111 YOU ONLY GOT ACCEPTED INTO COLLEGE CUZ UR A COLORED PERSON AND U GOT PICKED OVER A DECENT,HONEST WHITE CHILD!11 OPPRESSION!" Do you know how it feels like to be hardworking and smart, and ALWAYS have someone questioning whether you only got the job/got into college/other because you're a POC?
This isn't a vote for Romney. I just don't like this post.
I'm voting for Cady, because she pushed her
I'm voting for Regina George because she got hit by a bus.
It's not like we should all decide that because we don't/can't give this attention to everyone, we shouldn't give it to anyone. I think when things like this happen it really reinforces the idea that people need to be careful in how they treat others.
About the same percentage of black people have been voting Democrat for the past couple elections. Maybe it's not because of skin color. Maybe it's because, gasp, Democrats clearly have their interests at heart.
I'm secretly Allstate.
Pro-choice is exactly that, a CHOICE. we're not exclusively supporting abortion, nor exclusively supporting birth of ALL fetuses. We're saying if you feel like you can't support the baby when it's born, an abortion is the other option you speak of. If you can't support it but you want to have the child anyway, that's not our choice and we shouldn't have to help because of it. I'm not responsible for women who have a child and can't support it, nor am I responsible for women who have an abortion. I just support their right to do what they choose.
Well...no...look at countries where the rich do may more taxes. That's not the case at all, in fact, with better education and welfare and a greater degree of social mobility, more people aspire to those roles because more people have the means to so so.
They're both equally shitty drawings.
Hey guess what OP, I've read that before. We covered it in a college class. It's all BS.
A couple of problems with it :
It doesn't take into account any amount of testing/experiments done on this issue. Identical resumes are sent to employers, one male one female, guess who gets the call back the majority of the time? Just coincidence, is it? (Similar testing is done with white sounding names versus more ethnic names with similar results, but that's a bit off subject.)
"Total hours paid" - They're suggesting that the reason women appear to be paid less is because men just work longer hours so when you average it out it just seems that women are paid less. What they leave out is that they included part time workers in that "study." Of course they are working less, those people were specifically part time. And often times employers will fill part time positions with females while males are offered more substantial work. But even with similar hours, experience, education, etc women are still underpaid.
OK, experience. Time and time again women are hired to do menial jobs, never gaining work experience that was offered to their male counterparts, to their disadv...
How can they ever expect to move forward if they can't gain the work experience that they need?
Women are still assumed to be the caretaker. Women are constantly asked about their home responsibilities (children) while mostly men are not. Does she have to take them to school? Who will pick them up? What if they get sick, how much time off will she need? Oh, I can see she's a risky hire! While with men it's assumed that he has a dutiful wife to take on all of those responsibilities. It's almost never assumed he would perform such womanly duties. I guess there are no such thing as single fathers.
Look kid, it doesn't take a genius to see that women continue to get the short end of the stick, or why. What I don't understand is why people insist on denying it. It's difficult enough being a woman trying to make a career, now try throwing ethnicity into the mix. Or poverty. Kid, the world is full of prejudice and discrimination. Open your eyes.
I love this one.
