Sovereignty over your person

the is the best pro-choice argument i've ever heard. 

kind of like the "stand your ground" laws

Having the right to your own body is just like shooting Trayvon Martin.

You are a fucking genius.  Talking Ben Carson level brains, here.

 :thanks:

to help push the argument along:

1) abortion should be allowed until the fetus has achieved 18 yrs of age

2) fathers should be allowed to request an abortion - if the mother chooses to have the child anyway, the father should not have to pay child support

3) black fetuses are aborted at 3 to 5 times* the rate as white fetuses.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm curious - do you actually believe in Gurdjieff (or his ideas) - or do you simply find them interesting?

contrary to popular belief, bipolar people tend to commit suicide more often during the manic stage

I appreciate you chiming in - you're info jives with the research I've been doing.  Except your comment us the first I've heard about pissing oneself... Vomiting, sure...

Anyhow, I'm reluctant to try them because of the negative side effects... But I'm just so damn intrigued by their history I can't seem to quit picking at it if you follow me.

From what I understand it acts on the same receptors as alcohol so I expect a degree of similarity.

I've been comparing preparation methods and it seems like sun tea provides the best results. But I also think its wise to dry, grind and mix the entire harvest in order to homogenize the sample so to speak.

Cool.  I've recently learned that I have tons of amanita muscaria that pop up on my property every year.  They have quite an interesting history and I'm very tempted to try them.

A new law in Michigan will prohibit local governments from banning, regulating or imposing fees on the use of plastic bags and other containers.

How many different levels up are possible? Can you pass a law banning banning banning plastics?

banning the banning of banning has already been banned.

Random complaint: I have been handy about the house since I was a kid, and have been fixing up old houses since 1998. I used to work for a company that specialized in old house restoration, I used to co-own a company that specialized in vintage hardware, and have done work on at least a dozen old houses. I specialized in vintage plumbing, but I am also fluent with electrical, framing, and basic finish carpentry. I can lay tile, and have taught others to lay tile. I used to, naively, think that the reason people invariably talk to me like I have no idea what I'm doing was because I was young. As I got older I thought they were underestimating my age, and therefore my experience. Now that I'm all old and gray-haired, it's impossible to ignore that it's just my vagina that leads people to talk to me like I am clueless and helpless around home improvement.

I'm so, so fucking sick of it.

In general, I'm sick of being talked to like I'm incompetent just because I'm female.

In general, I'm fucking sick of people underestimating women just because we have tits and vaginas.

My own household is an egalitarian dream, but as soon as I interact with people outside of our little paradise, it's back to being talked to like I'm a retarded version of a man.

I am horrified that this is the world I'm sending my daughters out into; a world where, by virtue of their sex, they will be treated as nincompoops by default.

Fuck all of this bullshit.

have you considered the possibility that people talk to you like you're an idiot, not because of your gender, but rather - most everybody is an idiot? 

not saying that's the case - but, you know - it's possible . . .
