I’m sorry, but if lesbians can control themselves in a girls only changing room with ass naked woman waltzing around. Then I figure men should be able to control them selves with clothed girls walking down the street. Just a thought.
“We shouldn’t teach great books; we should teach a love of reading. Knowing the contents of a few works of literature is a trivial achievement. Being inclined to go on reading is a great achievement.”—B.F. Skinner, American psychologist (via whats-out-there)
I’m prepared, and not really nervous, but I’d say slightly apprehensive. My boss said not to be nervous and just remind myself that I’m the best and that I have the best ideas in my presentation so it doesn’t matter what the other candidates present because my ideas are the best. Hah awesome, I’m gonna kick ass and take names. Or atleast hopefully get a call for a 2nd interview.
My mom wants me to have a Jewish wedding. She said it very matter-of-factly as if this was already an established thing.
I had to remind her that I haven’t been to services in 8 years, I left Sunday school at age 11, I can’t read or write Hebrew, I never had a Batmitzvah, my fiancee isn’t Jewish, and I don’t believe in God. I mean how much more un-Jewish could I be? I mean I’m going to the San Diego Atheist Coalition meeting, c’mon.
I’m so tired of this. Tired of filling out applications, tired of calling and getting a “we’ll call you when we choose candidates to interview.” I have a masters degree and 3 years of experience in my field and really excellent references and it took me 10 months after graduation to get an interview.
Only to get 3 interviews and not get hired at any.
I’m so tired of this, won’t anybody hire a good worker? I’m sure there’s terrible librarians out there and I could easily fill their spot. I’m so frustrated!
I actually don’t have an opinion on this. I mean people enter in to polygamous relationships all the time; but as far as polygamy when it comes to marriage… it usually only happens in certain religious groups and I don’t like any of the major or minor world religions. So I don’t really have an opinion one way or the other; people are gonna do what they’re gonna do, who’m I to stop them, though it does make the whole marriage thing complicated.
Why do you think government should be involved in anyone's marriage- straight, gay, or otherwise? Why is it appropriate for states to get involved in any voluntary personal relationships? It seems to me that what ruins the sanctity of marriage is government issued marriage licenses. Instead of begging for the equal right of gays to be married, ought we not be asking the state to stop licensing and regulating straight marriage?
I’m not quite sure what you’re trying to say; are you saying we outlaw marriage outright?
The government issues marriage licenses for property. If someone marries several people from different states, and we didn’t have the state to issue marriage licenses, who does said person’s property go to when they die, especially if they don’t have a will (which many people don’t)? States issue marriage licenses so they can check with other state databases to make sure everyone only marries 1 person (or several, after several divorces).
Now it’s wishful thinking to just do away with all laws pertaining to marriage and just let everybody get married. But that’s the same as saying let’s get rid of the minimum wage and pay people what they deserve or lets get rid of regulations because people and businesses should regulate themselves. If humans were less human-y and more Vulcan-like, then this would work; but humans aren’t Vulcan-like and they’re prone to things like greed, pride and gluttony.
I’m fairly certain there was a woman on my bus today who thinks ebola is rampant and anyone can get it from the air because she had a cloth covering her mouth/nose and was staring around slightly wildly when people sneezed.
