No. You might find this surprising, but the Latin populace has very similar attitudes to the white, non-Hispanic populace. Their youths are just as thuggish as any, but teenage brats don't seem to vary much across cultural or ethnic lines. The only group that consistently shows greater opposition to...

This is quite wrong, actually. They tend to be surprisingly supportive.

If passed, the amendment would override the ruling in "In re Marriage Cases" that struck down both the 1977 law and Proposition 22. The Constitution, as amended, would add a new section (Section 7.5) to Article I, placing it between the state Equal Protection clause and nondiscrimination in busines...

If I were looking Death square in the face, let me be quite frank: I do this on a daily basis, and I regularly restate that my life's goal is not to become a rotting, dead corpse or a pile of ashes. I am dying right now due to the slow, lethal cancer of aging that originates at every person's birth,...

Quoth the gryphon: "Umm...I have no intention of dying. Ever." Quoth the Christian: "Oh, is that so?" The man gives the gryphon the cocky smile of someone who thinks he knows better. "Well, I regret to inform you that not one of us can escape death. You will not live forever, and you will have to de...

California, of all states, is least likely of all states to pass a ban against gay marriage. In fact, they have the strongest and most active liberal base of all states, and their supposedly conservative governor has not only failed to endorse the ban but has outright spoken against it. In fact, suc...

Men enforce it only in the KSA and Iran. Only these two countries. In countries with high illiteracy like Pakistan and India, many Muslim men force their women to wear the hijab, but they make up a minority. The hijab is basically very common in and around the Arabian peninsula, it gets rarer the f...

Men are psychologically vulnerable, and there are many "date rape" situations in which the male is as much a victim as his partner. It is nonsense to assume that you have to lay your hands on a person in order to violate him or her. It's a murky issue, but it is one that needs to be addressed. I am...

Liberals... Do you even know what Liberalism actually is??? :? Whatever Ragtime happens to disagree with at the time. Ragtime's just your typical bigot. One of these days, someone's going to smack him down for his bullhockey, and he's going to be sitting there wondering why. And he STILL won't real...

Anyone running for President, particularly if he is front-runner, will always become a target for some amount of joshing. As ridiculous as some of Obama's gaffes are, though, Ragtime, you are clearly cherry-picking. If I thought that you were doing this for the sake of political humor, which is a ti...

The burka is ridiculous, though, and it's counter-productive. Social liberalization and egalitarian compassion is the only strategy that has consistently proven itself effective in reducing sexual mischeif and violent crime. Oppressive taboo is like gasoline on the fire. The hijab can only prevent ...

... some men find it incredibly embarrassing to lose their capacity for coherent speech due to some ho's exploitation of their vulnerability. Sexist harassment is ugly (or as the Buddhists might say, "unskilful") no matter which gender is perpetrating it. It's drawing a long bow to call ^this^ "rap...

1) How can you declare that which involves society is not part of my business? Do people marry and retreat to the forests? Gay marriage is just as much your business as it is your neighbor's. Yes, if gay marriage is offensive to your scruples, it is your place to feel out of sorts out of it. Howeve...

It's only a matter of time before "californiacation" effects us all. First it was Massachusetts, now them. In time, all fifty-two states will allow gay marriage. Sorry my fundalmentalist brethren. We now have fifty-seven states, Averick. Barrack Obama said so. See? I can josh the guy. Anyway, only ...

No one asks to get raped and even if they do, you have self control. More attention should be paid to sexual assault against men, though. It isn't well recognized because it's mostly psychological, but some men find it incredibly embarrassing to lose their capacity for coherent speech due to some h...

I'd like to know why men regularly get raped in divorce settlements. The system's skewed. Unfortunately, it seems sexism is perfectly acceptable as long as the men get shafted.
