Re: what's your favorite website?

False allegations are awful and cause suffering. A person is more likely to be falsely convicted of murder than rape. https://www.thecut.com/article/false-rape-accusations.html A man is more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. https://www.channel4.com/news/factcheck/factcheck-men-are-mo...

Re: what's your favorite website?

Just like women are victims, men have also been made into victims by women who continually go unpunished due to their gender. The raped can recover in time, most of these men will never recover to any previous life they could have had. Your saying that it's worse for someone to be falsely accused o...

Re: what's your favorite website?

I used to seek out similar painful confrontations to jar myself into remembering how much terrible stuff is in the world. It's probably why a news website (albeight not.org) has been a favorite website in the past. My current favorite is probably Plants For A Future (pfaf.org), but it's really the d...

kids' mail subscriptions

Does anyone get a box or magazine subscription for their kid? Any you would recommend? My mom had the idea of giving my kid Little Passports but they don't ship to Finland. Kiwico has a similar line that will come here, but there's still the concern about how well they're teaching about different cu...

Re: Analog or digital clock?

One of my not so well kept secrets is that I'm terrible at telling time. It's like I was sick that week in first grade and never made up for it. And yet, analog. There was a time when trying to overcome my ineptitude that I wore two watches, analog and digital, attempting to read the clock face and ...

Re: ‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration

Sorry for the confusion. I was thinking about city, country, and even state wide legislation within the US. I know anti-descrimination laws that would include trans individuals are on some ballots this November and am aware of others that have been passed within the last decade. So my question was i...

Re: ‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration

I just learned about this yesterday. I don't think I've encountered a more appropriate use of "Orwellian". So the courts could shoot it down (not gonna happen) or the legislative branch could make the law more explicit. I heard there was a bill with that included but it hasn't gotten anywhere. Does ...

Happy birthday! I wanted to get you a spy baby, which led me down a hole that included a lot of hateful propaganda and scary medical stuff, but eventually led me to cute babies in decorated cranial molding helmets including an r2d2.

I voted by mail and got a sticker

I got my ballot in the mail yesterday and mailed it out today. It came with a sticker saying "I voted by mail" which I happily stuck on after the envelope went in the box. I don't remember getting stickers with the mail-in-ballot in the past. It's also much bigger than any sticker I've gotten when v...

Re: How important is school?

I think it depends on how terrible it is. I grew up in the U.S. in a state with a funding system ruled illegal by the U.S. Supreme Court. My siblings started in a non-prestigious private school because the public schools were so terrible. My parents couldn't afford to send me as well, so we moved to...

Re: Abortion - My Stance and Why I Can Still Be a Feminist

Basically, first I will state my stance on abortion: -- An adult human has something that makes it wrong for somebody to kill it (whatever this may be, I will simply refer to it as "a life"). There comes a point where the unborn child has this. -- Once the unborn child has this (considered to be "a...
