    Absolutely beautifully stated. I too have always drawn a distinction between religion and faith or spirituality. I’m not religious but I can be sometimes spiritual (I have no defined beliefs really, if anything I’m an agnostic polytheist)

    “Generally, many mothers would agree me because sex in this way connected to something bigger than the act. I’m not only saying “for me”, I’m speaking collectively, “for most”.

  • So now she’s a stalker? Way to promote victim blaming. The wording in the NPR article is terrible “allegedly essentially a stalker” that’s piling opinion on top of opinion. Not to mention every time he reports a “fact” he throws in doubt on the woman’s story. Of course it sounds fishy when you say things [...]

    It started off fine but then the interviewer became more antagonistic as the interview went on, had he dropped the subject of provocation after asking if he was rolling to towards the police. I don’t think there would have been any outcry, but he didn’t even after McIntyre explained that he can’t actually use his [...]
