    Actually, it does let them off the hook, because rapists will be able to point to this act/bill/law if passed and use it in their defense if they didn’t use physical violence to subdue the victim. The burden is then on the victim to submit proof (pictures of bruises, cuts, scratches, broken bones) that violence [...]

    I didn’t say that executive boards should be made up of the exact percentages of different people as the larger population, but that kind of disparity as ridiculous. There are minorities and women graduating college at increasing rates, and even if it takes women longer to get to the executive board due to pregnancies, they [...]

  • Geez, haven’t any of these people ever heard of playing a sport for fun, you know, win or lose you still have a good time. Do these intellectuals also promote the idea that heterosexual married couples should only play ball when they are most likely to win a baby?
