Re: The Abortion Thread

By the way, I don't think all pro-life people are trying to control women's bodies, but I do think a portion of pro-life women buy into that subconsciously. That it's about making the "right" choices and having consequences if you don't. Like, look, I was a good woman and behaved myself so I didn't ...

Re: The Abortion Thread

Just tell me, pro-life "libertarians": is this rash of state laws what you want this country to be? Is forcing that 11-year-old to bear her rapist's offspring a proper use of state power, in your view? And they would say, would you allow that same woman to kill her rapist's offspring if the child w...

Re: Inequality

I took that post to mean the guy (excuse me -- the xuy) thinks sex work is a job, but being a landlord isn't.

But I think a lot of religious conservatives wouldn't think of sex work as a job, the way you wouldn't call robbing banks or scamming old ladies a job.

What was happening in that scene where Brienne was writing in a book? I've seen a lot of memes about it (mostly Mean Girls based) but I didn't actually watch the episode. She was filling in Jaime's part of the Kingsguard history. Ah, thank you. I had also seen a screenshot of Tyrion saying "Who has...

Re: Home $weet Home

I attempted a sweeping decluttering of our spare room to turn it into a home office. Mainly what was in there was clean, perfectly nice clothes that never get worn for whatever reason (don't fit, not someone's style, etc.) A cold, rational assessment of my laziness revealed that if I decided to dona...

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

I understand the extreme usefulness of having a setup where you can tell a single story per episode, but why does practically EVERY show have to make that setup "... and they solve crimes!" Joan of Arcadia, for instance, did a problem-of-the-week without it being a police procedural. I'm just weary ...

Re: A thread for mocking politicians

The criticism I always hear (in real life -- I seem to know a lot of anti-charter-school people!) is that charter schools are for racist WHITE people who want to do an end-around on integration, and send their kids to an all-white school.

Re: Video Games!

I am amused by "Crowd City" on my phone. It feels like a beta version/mechanism for getting you to watch ads* but it's still fun. You start out as one faceless, brightly colored cartoon guy running around a SimCity-style city. You are apparently the most charismatic person ever, because as soon as ...
