Re: “Getting a grip on real world feminism

I want to throw up. Shame on you. You don't know how great you have it here as a woman. Most women who are married, rule the roost. Have you been to Pakistan, or Afghanistan lately?? Or Somalia? Or Bahrain? Saudi Arabia. I suggest you visit those countries before mouthing off how bad women have it here.

And I guess you did not read the articles and see the pictures and videos of the people coming in from Syria into Germany. All young men. You hardly saw any women and children. You need to brush up on your current events. They are building an army. Have you any idea what is going on in the EU? Apparently not.

My parents were refugees. But came here legally. Never took a dime from the government and assimilated. Did you know that the #1 name in the U.K. Is Mohammad? Not Harry. Why is that? Do you know that Sweden has the highest incident of rape by young Muslim men? Why is that? The girls are dying their hair dark, to dissuade the men from attacking them. But I guess it's their fault. The land of the midnight sun.

You try moving to a country where they let you stay. Give you free housing. Free medical, free food and spending money. It doesn't exist. They throw u out. Why? They have borders.

You talk about justice. My goodness. You live in the greatest country in the world. Start appreciating it.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

Wait a minute. Wasn't this article about the trans gender issue??? The above comments have absolutely nothing to do with the article. I feel for transgender people. I just watched an episode on VICE on HBO last week devoted to this issue. And if it is healthy to start young kids from going thru puberty. I really do feel there is a cross chromosome that happens. But the issue is what to do with the majority of the population who are not transgender. We hv to look at both sides. When I saw this young boy on Vice, who was 5, he was already a " she". Totally. No way did she look like a he. But what happens when she goes to middle school and HS? And has to change in the locker room. She can get hormones to be more feminine. She can go in a stall. The girls will never know, until they start gym. I know when I was a young teenager, the thought of seeing a man's genitals was scary. Granted teenage girls r having sex at a younger age. But not all. And it is not fair to them and their parents to be subjected to a very small % of the population.

I do not think the Supreme Court sent it back to the lower courts because of Trump. This will be left up to the states. Just as pot is being left up to the states.
But to judge people as racists or homophobic and just horrible people is nonsense because they don't agree with transgender bathrooms.

People who voted for Trump are not racist. Don't hate gays. Don't hate transgenders. And blacks who are republicans are not uncle Tom's. It is utter nonsense. And it's getting boring.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

The global killings of American's likely refers to people like Anwar al-Awlaki, A great guy and Muslim preacher, who incited attacks against the West. Also, Samir Khan, another great guy, who was an Al Qaeda militant who created and served as an editor for the Al Qaeda magazine, 'Inspire'. Awlaki's son , was also killed by U.S. Drones. Or Perhaps he refers to another great guy, Jude Kenan Mohammad, who was an Al Qaeda recruiter. All great guys I am sure, all U.S. Citizens, and all thankfully dead for fighting against the country they betrayed.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

As far as wiretapping of private citizens, maybe some thought should be put into wiretapping the right citizens (which they did - can't vouch for the current administration) because since 9/11/01, all terrorist attacks that have been carried out on American soil, have been American citizens.

"Global killings of American citizens" ordered by Obama? Please provide a source because I would like to research that some more since it is extremely troubling.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

"In this regime, there are no real principles, only power and the repression of anyone vulnerable enough to repress."

This Baltimore carpetbagger must have been smoking a lot of the cannabis he speaks of for the last 8 years to miss all the wiretapping of private citizens, forced health insurance mandates and unauthorized global killings of American citizens that the Obama administration was engaged in.

CCP how long until you give a South Carolinian an editorial job that you farm out to Northeast hacks?

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I am so glad that lawmakers are taking my porn-induced blindness, and hairy palm syndrome seriously. Mom always said it could happen, but I never believed her.

Re: “Thief allegedly robs Girl Scouts of their cookie money

Glad it got caught. And, I will stop using the term deplorable since it is a sensitive term now. I wasn't insinuating that Trump supporters are thieves, so I apologize to everyone - not just the "offended".

Re: “Is Lindsey Graham gay?

Heterosexual males , from early, want to have children and get married. It is innate. It is obeying the first great commandment to "Increase and Multiply." That some do not get married , some get children but do not get married, some marry and do not get children and some get do not get married and do not get children does not mean that they are gay.

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I call BS.South Carolina has no way of executing its more than 30 death row inmates?The perfect solution is in their own thinking.South Carolina lawmakers have now filed a resolution to declare pornography as a public health hazard and weed is so dangerous that SC would become a death trap,there you have it.Lock them up and take them out with weed and porn!!.By South Carolina lawmakers ideas, they would not last but a few days on death row!!!

Does this mean our legislators feel that porn has damaged them?

Re: “Hush That Fuss?

When an officer is responding to an assault, the whole notion of Sheriff Taylor and Deputy Fife having a nice little chat with some troubled teens goes out the window. I don't want to see kids get roughed up, but bus drivers should be able to do their job without fear for their safety. Keep in mind also that getting arrested is a way of gaining street cred, and that is a huge problem in the African American community. Teens and young adults trying to prove they're black enough to their peers is not a reflection of police practice, but of a decayed culture.

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I don't cotton to the notion that only one problem can be tackled at once. There are a lot of people in the Assembly and Senate, after all. However, I'd like to see the proportionately-larger effort by our state's reps to combat the legitimate public health hazards in our state. Consider: drug addiction, mercury contamination of drinking water, long-delayed lead and asbestos abatement in low-income housing, the lack of guardrails on rural highways, and of course our crowning achievement: women being killed by their intimate partners.

Work on regulating porn, fine, but if you care about public health then put that much effort or more into things that harm and kill us every day, every year.

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

The damn SC sex patrol group again. Why worry about roads and education when Courtney Cummz and Eva Angelina have captured the attention of our political Columbia Crew. I, for one, am mildly disappointed at us only being 25th in the nation. I guess I need to spend some extra time on pornhub to try to bring up our ranking. I know we could be #1 if we all work at it a little harder. Who's the #1 now?

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

What is the public health hazard? Carpal tunnel syndrome? My take away is this "Pornhub users in the Palmetto State spend an average of 10 minutes 44 seconds on the site per visit, 29 seconds longer than the national average." I heard "South Carolina people can last 29 seconds longer than the national average." Finally we aren't number 50 in something.

Re: “Attorneys for Michael Slager cite Trump’s declarations of ‘fake news’ in allegations of media witch-hunt

Fake news: completely fabricated stories peddled by click-baiters to rubes eager for confirmation of their preconceived notions.

Slanted coverage: news that covers a story with a narrative in mind. Not the same thing whatsoever.

Unfriendly coverage: news that YOU don't agree with.

Officer Slager shot a fleeing man in the back multiple times, leading to that man's death. That's not fake news... we've all seen it ourselves. Sorry your client isn't getting painted as a hero for shooting a man at a distance in the back, but it is real news even if it is unfriendly to the accused.

Re: “Hush That Fuss?

"Would it have not made sense to attempt to first diffuse the situation peacefully, allowing the students to be disciplined by their families and their school?"
The problem is, the parents would NOT discipline their children. This is likely how the children ended up in this situation. A child does not suddenly go from good to bad overnight, it is a process. Had the parents been made to come down, then the situation likely would have re-escalated as parents refuse to accept that their children are not the little angels they perceive them to be, or begin the discipline process right then and there.
