• Of course I have a knee-jerk reaction to the headline, but I cannot argue with your reasoning. I’m Asian. Mainstream America can pretty much keep their mouths shut about their assumptions and stereotypes about Asia and Asians as well.

  • It has been some years since I have read posters on Feministing ranting against SAAHMs and “breeders” or about how the child free feel they have to pull the weight for coworkers taking off for their sick children, or having “their” tax money taken to pay for someone else’s children (as if the child free [...]

    “Landon Donovan is not the all-time US leading goal scorer.” It was the author’s goal to be factually correct. In addition to adding the caveat “male,” it would also be necessary to add the caveat “in international competition.” American women have scored the most goals in international competition. The hundreds of comments on Jezebel seem [...]

    I understand why buffer zones around women’s clinics are necessary, not least of which is privacy. Strangers have no business knowing who is going to a women’s clinic or why. Misusing that information (as when activists inform women’s families they have visited an “abortion clinic” or harass them at home) is a violation of federal [...]

  • a male commented on the blog post Why men should be fighting just as hard for women’s reproductive freedom   4 months, 4 weeks ago · View

    Your mother’s story is powerful. One need not experience the hardships your grandmother and mother went through to understand the value of reproductive freedom for women. I believe many men would want women to be able to have control over their own bodies, if they knew they would be free of the responsibilities of unwanted [...]

  • I was not that way as I grew up going to a Fundamentalist Christian church and had self esteem issues. However, if people can avoid unplanned pregnancy, STDs/STIs, and treat partners respectfully, I do not see a problem with people hooking up. I wish I had more fun in high school and before I was [...]

    This week, Hawaii became one of the first states to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour (when it takes full effect in four years). It was passed by our state Legislature and signed by our Governor, former US Representative Neil Abercrombie. “I always thought it’s not a minimum wage, it’s a survival wage,” [...]

    What I found shocking is families pay kids about $2,500 a year, or $15-$24 per hour, for basic chores. College educated young people aren’t getting this much in this economy, if they even have jobs which require college.

    Thank you for standing up for men who’d like to work in childcare. I’m a male nurse and face a number of similar issues. But you can’t point at a simple wage gap and call that discrimination. As pointed out, there are some things missing: Education/training vs. gender Experience vs. gender Performance vs. gender For [...]

    I was ignorant until the news report this morning, as I have not been following the case. Reportedly, Manning will need to transfer to a federal prison to receive hormone treatment or sex reassignment surgery, as it is unavailable at the military prison. It is an added burden and safety issue for her in addition [...]

    The comments to the linked article are for the most part, sympathetic to the situation of the working poor. Critics are in my view, fairly mild in their comments. I am sympathetic to the plight of the working poor, because I consider myself one of them, despite a degree and working as a nurse. The [...]

    Despite its often spot on take on the issues facing the US, you realize the Onion is a humor and satire publication, right, as in fiction? You also noticed “Just Once I’d Like To Make A Hotel Reservation Without Hearing About Someone’s Relative Surviving The Holocaust” by “one of the world’s most renowned Holocaust scholars, [...]

    As was reported on CNN, jury selection is so important. However, that is yet another indication of what is wrong with America. The jury is not supposed to matter that much. The prosecution and defense have opportunities pre trial, to have the jury made up of people who are impartial, or sympathetic to their own [...]

    So sad and disgusting, and all so true. The parents of Trayvon Martin will never recover what they have lost. George Zimmerman may be in fear, but he has many to support him financially and otherwise, and he has his gun. I’m not advocating violence, but fuck George Zimmerman. I’ve had to talk to my [...]

    I believe it is part of the job of elected officials to debate and vote for new laws. Voting after midnight would most certainly be cheating. As for filibustering, those who support choice (I support abortion on demand, and believe it should be the law nationwide regardless of anyone’s religious or moral beliefs, including “it’s [...]

    I believe abortion on demand should be legal. It doesn’t really matter when a woman wants or needs an abortion. However, if the fetus is developed enough to feel pain, 28 weeks or whatever point at which it is established in research, then the fetus should receive anesthetic or some other drug to stop its [...]

    Keira Wilmot’s mother, Marie Martin Wilmot has her own Facebook page. She is a funny and thoughtful lady. In addition to the prosecutor dropping charges in the felony case, Keira is not expelled from her high school. Ms. Wilmot’s remaining concern is Keira’s arrest record. I believe it will be sealed or cleared when she [...]

    In a comment of mine which was rejected, I asked when the story was new, whether we wanted Angel Castro to be charged with murder for causing miscarriages, because of the implications of granting personhood to a fetus. I agree with the assessment of fembots as some people’s flawed idea of a perfect woman. Viewing [...]

    This is about unions, but holds true for other people with employer provided insurance as well. Yes, more services, and more “free” services, but what will it cost people in premiums? Will you be able to keep your current health insurance provider? My favorite part is how one commenter points out “The Treasury Deptment’s (IRS) [...]
