  • a male commented on the blog post Chart of the Day: There’s even a gender wage gap in babysitting   3 weeks, 6 days ago · View

    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 [...]

  • a male commented on the blog post Manning announces she is transitioning   7 months, 3 weeks ago · View

    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 [...]

  • a male commented on the blog post Slavery and Holocaust Used to Defend 20-Week “Fetal Pain” Bill   10 months, 2 weeks ago · View

    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 [...]

    This story covered on HLN Morning express, and they are taking it seriously.

    OTOH, they are also reporting people are offended by a tea kettle sold at JC Penney they claim looks like Hitler.

    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) [...]

    As in the Kiera Wilmot case, it is not the fault of the police for doing their job. If something is reported to the police, they should act on it, and it is up to the prosecutor, judge or grand jury to decide what to do with it. Contrary to claims, young men do get [...]

    I am a nurse. I was very excited when I first heard about Obama’s plan to fix healthcare. This video makes it sound very nice. What is not to like? Try, for example, Obama’s proposal to cut $415 billion on Medicare expenses – by not paying. “$415 Billion comes from cutting tax payer money going [...]

    “Bartow Bomb” student Kiera Wilmot will not face criminal charges Wilmots will not need to be in court defending Kiera against felony charges, but the matter of her expulsion remains. Also, the fund being established by family attorney Larry Hardaway (still sketchy on details) is for Kiera’s “welfare and care,” not only legal fees. Kiera’s [...]

  • Breast cancer is serious. There’s some debate in the medical community whether increased awareness and screening are not leading to more false positives and unnecessary procedures. Angelina Jolie made her choice. When I first saw the headline, I thought, oh no! Then I realized she gave it thought, naturally, she sees the immense benefit considering [...]

Kiera’s mother Marie is a single mother, and [...]

    “NC Senate passes bill erroneously listing abortion as a cause of preterm birth.” I thought this was referring to how, as seen in the Gosnell case, someone performing an abortion would remove a fetus, or preterm infant in Gosnell’s case, prior to its due date. In the Gosnell case, that was part of the issue, [...]

    I kept my mouth closed regarding controlling for factors such as educational attainment or uninterrupted years of experience*, because the argument is sound overall, and the author kindly included links where commenters on those posts express my common concerns on the “77 cents for every dollar earned by a man” figure. I will say this [...]
