If Common Sense Was Used in Government and the...
Citizen: I don't believe in abortion.
Government: Then don't get one.
Citizen: I don't believe in birth control.
Government: You don't have to use it.
Citizen: I think gay marriage is a sin.
Government: Don't marry the same sex then.
Citizen: I want my kids to learn about creationism.
Government: Take them to church.
Yes it IS actually that simple.

thepolitemadman: Here’s what I don’t understand about circumcision. You have a beautiful child made out of love that you adore and say “Oh, they’re perfect in every way! Now let’s mutilate their genitals so they can be more aesthetically pleasing. It’s ‘cleaner’ that way”. Why is it considered cleaner looking, or more pleasing to the eye? Why are someone’s genitals something that...
On Gender, Sex, and Sexuality
thepolitemadman: One thing that I think people for seem to either forget or just be totally ignorant of is the basic concept that someone’s gender and sex are two entirely separate things. Your sex is how you were born, or what is between your legs. Your gender is how you identify, or what is between your ears. The concept in and of itself is not a difficult one, but gender and sex seem to...

victusinveritas: Whether we are talking about sex or circumcision.
uncutting: andythegardensnake: I’m sorry, but letting men debate abortion is like letting women debate circumcision. Personally, I’m of the view that everyone should be able to debate everything, even if they don’t all have the same experience with the issue, but that’s just me. (Let me preface this by emphasizing I’m pro-choice) Just because I haven’t had direct experience...
On Traditional Values:
thepolitemadman: There’s been a quite popular game going around the political circuit these days. I like to call it the “New things are evil” game. You’ll know when politicians are playing it because they’ll say things like “It’s an attack on our traditional values,” and “It must be stopped!” Here’s the thing you have to remember, though. Traditional values are stupid. They also...
My mom just told me that she’s divorcing my stepdad after 21 years together. I’m 23 years old, and I literally do not remember him not being there for me, and not being in my life. I mean, for fuck’s sake, this is the man who taught me to piss standing up when I was 2. I don’t just have one dad, I have two and now I just feel like I’m losing one of them. Honestly,...
thepolitemadman: Introductions are and always have been odd to me. I find introducing yourself to someone to be a bit tedious. Think about it; You have to reduce your entire being, your personality, your wants and needs as a rational creature, and in essence your whole life, to just a few sentences. It never comes out how you want it to, which is why I never consider...

BREAKING: Prop 8 decision to come tomorrow →
gaywrites: The LA Times reports that a federal appeals court will decide tomorrow on the constitutionality of California’s Prop 8, the measure that bans marriage equality in the state. Regardless of how a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decides the case, its ruling is very likely to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which could decide next year whether gays and...
