When a baby is born, nobody ever wonders if that child will grow up to be black.

These Leftists simultaneously argue that bride+groom requirements in state marriage licenses are arbitrary because women and men are interchangeable and gender is a social construct AND that a gay man can't be happy with a woman. How can both be true? Ask them if Chaz Bono is a liar. If Bono is telling the truth, and really is a man now, then Bono is an ex-lesbian. So we have proof that there is such a thing as an ex-gay. Ah, but logic doesn't matter. It is all about their feelings.
You know what we used to do as a society? We used to have them get married, and then the father worked and the mother - MOTHERED. Or if that wasn't going to happen, the mother went out of town to live with relatives or at a religious institution, where she delivered the child and gave the child up for adoption to a married couple.
Thank you. Getting pregnant is usually a choice. Keeping a baby rather than giving the baby up for adoption is a choice. I'm a married father, by intention. I have limitations my childless and unmarried peers don't. Should there be special programs and facilities to accommodate me? Well, I'm all for VOLUNTARY provision of those things. I do NOT want my tax dollars going to make schools more accommodating for pregnancy/parenting, especially if the encouragement is going to be for the parent to shove their child into day orphanages from age six weeks on. Don't have and keep kids unless you're going to raise them.
I will not begin to take any of these people seriously until they themselves are living in natural caves with nothing manufactured. Otherwise, they clearly don't care much about their contributions to climate change.
Do not have kids unless you will raise them. Kids belong with a parent until they are 5. Sticking them in "school" before that is just an excuse to have hired help babysit your kid when your kid should be with you. I say this as someone who started being stuck in "preschool" at age 3, and as someone who did NOT stick my kids in preschool. Oh, and guess what? My kids, despite being at the younger end of their classes, are some of the most advanced students in them.

Feminists Against Cosmo

Ken the Playful Walrus Wrote: Dec 01, 2014 3:17 PM
Women following Cosmo's advice about dealing with men are not likely to enter into a (lasting) marriage. Unmarried women are more likely to vote Democrat. Coincidence?
Some important things to remember: 1) There are many reasons a man and a woman used to be chaperoned on dates, or courted inside a family home, in the common rooms. Automobiles and urbanization did much to change that. 2) I don't care if she's flirted all day/week, sent your lurid text messages, and taken the lead in taking your clothes off and engaging in certain acts. The moment she says "no", "don't", or "stop", then STOP! Go jump in a cold pool, if you have to. Previous encounters are NOT an ongoing, irrevocable "yes". 3) Sex you later regret is NOT rape. 4) Man can get raped, too, including by women. Some have been. 5) False accusations make it all the more difficult for actual victims. 6) Women are literally giving it away to men now with little time, money or effort spent by him. That means most guys are raping because it is about hurting her, not because of lust.

Long Wars Aren't Working

Wars would be very short if we used nukes. Fewer American casualties, too.
