    So, this certainly sounds like it could be gaslighting. But we’ve also seen some statistics lately (as well as a whole ton of anecdotal evidence) that rapists often deliberately target women who have personality or mental disorders, because they know that these women are less likely to be believed when they attempt to report the rape.

    I can’t even begin to list the books I can think of off the top of my head that don’t have any romantic subplots whatsoever- even you mention Harry Potter above, and the first couple books certainly don’t have any romantic subplots. The same is true of many, many, many mystery novels I can think [...]

    I’m really not sure that being young is an excuse for posting on a subject where you have clearly not done any research- maybe take it as a learning experience, but before you go posting about a news story, you need to actually familiarize yourself with the facts. To do otherwise is incredibly irresponsible, because [...]

    I don’t know, here’s the way I think about it- if we were, say looking at a presidential election that pitted Obama against Michele Bachmann, would you even have a second thought about voting against the female candidate? I know I wouldn’t. I’m personally of the belief that the most qualified candidate, and/or the candidate [...]

    I find this project terrifically interesting, and I wish you all the best of luck with it. I certainly think that there are things that people on both sides of the abortion debate can agree on (e.g. that reducing the number of abortions through comprehensive sex education is a good thing). And I think that [...]

    One thing you might want to consider is that CPS may actually be much better equipped to get the mother in touch with some sort of empowering organization than you are. This depends on where in the country you are, but I know in my state, CPS can require parents to take parenting or anger [...]

    I actually agree with your article almost completely and think you make a really good argument, but I wanted to point out a minor–if not an error, then at least a moment of ethnocentrism that you might want to edit. You say A fetus is a subordinate part of a woman’s body. It has the potential [...]
