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

But that's the issue. Trying to separate the criteria as you are, you're creating strawmen when no one looks only at whether or not an entity can form opinions It's not a strawman. "I'm not ignoring the bodily autonomy of the fetus. If it had an opinion on what to do with its own body parts I'd be ...

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

I believe you're conflating two different discussions. Basically, I solely brought up the example of a 1-year-old child to showcase the idea that you can't murder something because it isn't able to have an opinion about something. You have to agree, in that murder is not justified when somebody can...

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

Just because something doesn't have an opinion on a matter -that doesn't mean it's okay to kill them. That's insane. If you ask a 1-year-old child what their opinion is of their bodily autonomy, they wouldn't be able to tell you. They can't form sentences. That doesn't mean we should ignore their b...

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

If you create a policy that knowingly affects one sex and not the other, then it has everything to do with sex. It may or may not strictly be sexist, but it's definitely related to sex in effect. "Pro-life" is not a stance nature takes, and so it is not nature that risks being sexist here, but whoe...

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

I would argue there's a false equivalence. A fetus that relies on the pregnant woman is not the same a a baby or child relying in its mother. A fetus takes bodily resources from the pregnant woman and comes with a lot of prenatal costs not every woman consents to paying. The mother who bears a child...

Re: Took Zumba for the first time

I go to exercise classes a lot, and I've always found the gender imbalance interesting. I guess it makes sense, since my assumption would be that women feel less comfortable than men working out on their own. This one time there were 4 dudes in my spin class of ~25, which remains a record. I've nev...

Took Zumba for the first time

I decided I wasn't getting enough cardio and really wanted to throw all aspects of my comfort zone for a loop...hence Zumba. It does feel a little weird being the only guy in class, but I'll just have to get over it and have fun. Last week was my first and yesterday the third time. It's fun and a gr...

Re: What is your worst personality characteristic?

My worst is also my best. I like harmony, so I'll hold my tongue to avoid conflict or saying something hurtful. However, it's a double edged sword because it makes facing any sort of conflict difficult.

^ In other words, Luke wasn't the hero you wanted him to be. You're in the Kylo-position. You don't like being manipulated. Whereas I didn't feel manipulated. That was surprising, and I went with it. No, Luke wasn't the hero The Force Awakens set him up to be. And he certainly wasn't the person Ret...

Tangled: The Series (no spoilers)

The first season of Tangled, which take place after the events of the movie (and the made-for-TV sequel) but before the Tangled Ever After Short, just ended. And overall I actually liked it (of course I might be biased...*points to avatar*). It started out kind of episodic with some basic lessons li...

it said 30 min for Ariel when we were there but it took longer than that. IDK why, most of the line times were pretty accurate. I noticed they hand cards to some guests getting in line. It's apparently to help estimate the rate of people entering. If there was a big influx prior to when the cards w...
