Good for you.

Sadly, you will soon learn that it's ultimately useless, patriotism aside.

The only thing I find ridiculous is claiming a woman is a virgin who conceived and had a baby. Did that myth originate at the time of Mary / Jesus or was it invented later by the followers? It waz god wot dun it! Yeah, right. My guess would be that Jesus invented it. I would imagine that Mary, Jose...

Well, everyone says the cops are fine until they arrest you for no good reason.

Oink oink oink the pigs need to go back to the farm. Contrary to what you people have been lead to believe, not every cop is a sadistic jerk on a power trip. Yes, I actually know at least one cop that fits the stereotype you are mentioning, my ex-uncle (the slimeball my Aunt married years ago). Tha...

Men are more than welcome to share in influence within the familial and domestic sphere, imo - if they want it. I don't often see evidence that they do, but maybe in many generations time, that will change. I would like power to be shared between the sexes in all spheres. Here in Quebec, at the ver...

I agree.

How?

If we "switched" to matriarchy, the problem would be the same. The fact that men dominate women is not in itself the problem. The problem is when any group dominates any other group, especially when it is nigh-impossible to change from one group to the other. I don't think I would characterize my so...

I would imagine that an orgasm within a relationship is different from an orgasm without. All that you are doing is squirting semen. Same difference. The emotional value is different. Intimate relationships are not only a prerequisite to sex. They have value in themselves. From that point of view, ...

I don't advocate making prostitution illegal, whatsoever. Oh. Then why are we arguing? No, my position is that no well-of-mind person would buy sex. Selling sex is a reasonable choice in some circumstances. If no one buys sex, no one can sell it. I don't understand how you can get off with a partne...

Some think communism is a utopia but whenever communism is implemented with force people lose their freedoms and become worse off.

That's because utopias are not meant to be applied.

Women don't 'give' or 'reward' you with sex. It's not a commodity. It's an activity with two or more people involved. How is selling sex fundamentally different from selling a massage? You can't get STDs, internal injuries or pregnancy from giving a massage. There really aren't many especially deme...

Women don't 'give' or 'reward' you with sex. Then what is the objective of "dating?" That should be obvious. Social relationships do not inelectuably lead to sex. Also, in a date, the relationship is expected to be relatively equal and reciprocal. How is selling sex fundamentally different from sel...

If they accepted it, no one would have been punished The Nuremberg Trials were more a show trial than an actual trial. The laws were basically made up as they went. Actually, I remember that at Yalta, Roosevelt and Churchill wanted the chief Nazi rulers shot on capture. It was Stalin who wanted a tr...

If mariage is obsolete, it will disappear by itself. In fact, it is already dissolving somewhat as an institution -- or at least, it is not as rigid as it once was, for various reasons. Forcing people who want to marry not to do so is not a good solution. If it is the only way to stop a practice, it...
