So, I just saw a video of a woman slapping, numerous times, a man on a bus. Then, more women joining in… Not once did I see genitals. Not once did I see, or read, anything that indicated that this guy was being indecent. I went to YouTube to see if there was a video that indicated otherwise, but no…nothing. Unless I’m given proof to the contrary, this is a nonincident. Sad part…this is anything but a slow news day.

…and you’re a scuzzy little troll, so you can imagine how much your opinion means to anyone other than yourself.

The laws have prevented, until now, teenage boys from showering and changing in the girls locker rooms.
So, what happens when you put unclothed, hormone driven teenagers in the shower together with no supervision? By the way, the laws on allowing adult teachers in the showers to supervise have not changed.
Here’s the thing, I actually do live in reality. I understand that there are nearly the same number of “registered” sex offenders in the US as there are transgendered people. I also understand that the 9 out of 10 rapes and sexual assaults are perpetrated by assailants who are NOT “registered” as sex offenders. 90+% of rapes and sexual assaults are not reported for fear of the stigma associated with going public, so the facts are skewed on the number of rapes and assaults, each year, putting them much higher.
I wouldn’t invite a stranger into my home to share a shower or bathroom with myslef or my child, why would I allow that to happen in public? Opening showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms to the opposite gender will open the door to perverts (who are not transgendered), who would have stayed at home and watched child porn (which is disgustingly rampant in today’s society) into real life situations. It invites teens at school to be put into sexual and intimate situations with each other.
So yes, I live in reality. This has never been about transgendered people. It’s about common sense.

By the way, it’s God, not god. If you were a true “nonoffending lover of everyone”, and saw both, believers and nonbelievers, in the same nonbigoted way, you wouldn’t go out of your way to offend one group over another. Hypocritical much?

So, if you go to church and talk to your neighbors about your sexual behavior or preferences, raise your hand.
Why would the pastor of a church find it in anyway appropriate to discuss their sexual behavior in front of an entire congregation during a sermon?
Imagine being at church. Joe Schmoe walks to the podium. Then Joe tells your family that he likes to have sex with women, “Hey, All. I just wanted to let you know that I prefer sex with women. OK, thanks. Just thought you and your families needed that piece of information. Now, go on and praise God like this weirdness didn’t just happen”.
What is wrong with people, seriously?!

I live in the middle of a county park (not a national park), so the Rangers here could care less how close you get to the wildlife. Every morning, I have to run deer from my yard (they’ve eaten 199 of my 200 tulips…yes, I only had one flower this year, but it was beautiful. Besides, they kill all of the saplings in the area.), last week a rafter of wild turkeys tried to intimidate my Belgian Malinois, (oddly enough…they lost), and we (my kids and I) were run down the road by a gaggle of geese and bevy of swans (at the same time). I love my back to nature suburb, but sometimes I feel like I have to fight nature, in order to enjoy it.
Great story. Your tale about running the deer out of your tulip patch hits home as we have to do the same regularly though it does little good (as you know). We're on 20 acres of forest backed by millions more. With all of the wood needed to be cut and split and grounds to clear I also feel like we're fighting nature to enjoy it sometimes too, but that is why we live in the country. Here's a hint. Deer love ivy. We have a massive ivy patch and they eat it all year round. I don't know if it will help you, but it keeps them healthy and well fed until deer season. :)
You need a pack of wolves!

Hey, whatever… Bison are not domesticated animals, so if, or when, she’s mauled, no one will give a flying rat’s patootty (I’ve always wanted to use the word patootty in a sentence). Just like that crazy bear guy who thought that he was one with the bears, and they just let him live near them as preserved meat, until they ate him. Bison will maul you when they have young near, until then, they will pretend you don’t exist…as long as you don’t bother them. Dumb@$$.
The late Timothy Treadwell who thought the bears were his "friends" because he was trying to save them.

Dang! That is obvious.

Well, it’s a bit late for that, isn’t it. She didn’t stay out of the cage. If a farm dog, a domesticated animal, gets the taste for cows blood, by their own fault or not, you shoot that dog, because they will forever have a bloodlust, and any cow is no longer safe.
Same goes for a wild animal. No person in the zoo, or even in its natural habitat is safe anymore.

Tigers are oversized house cats. People tend to mix up the words “tame” and “domesticated”. Cats can act tame, but they are not domesticated, like dogs. All felines are still very much wild animals.

People tend to forget that there are very few domesticated animals. Cats, of any size, are not one of them.

We name all of our food, too. No biggie. One day they were there, a week later they were on our plate and we thanked God for them, by name. My first experience with the miracle of birth was helping a heifer, who had lied down while giving birth. It was amazing. Two years later, after hand raising the calf, we ate it. Nothing goes to waste on a farm. Ever.
I hope he’s keeping a close eye on his bank account and credit cards.

There is nothing about this that is right.

So this is just what I just read…Georgia will not lose out on any monies at all, since movie producers, for the most part, search out cities and counties that give them the largest tax waivers and the most free benefits. This is a noncommittal threat from Disney. When Disney needs a specific location for a film, they will go back to Georgia. They are not morally or ethically hard. They only say what they do, because they don’t have a specific future production scheduled in Georgia. If, or when, they do, they will continue with business as usual, as if they had never made this “threat”.
They are trying to appeal to “tomorrow’s ” parents. The children of the Millenials. This has always been their business model.
That's a great point. I hope the Georgia legislature actually understands this when they vote.
Welcome to politics. (Say one thing, just keep doing it the same after the outrage dies out but people will remember your "promise" and just think you did what you could do without ever investigating/questioning it further)
That was perfect.

My ancestry is very similar. I’m 1/16 Cherokee. When I was young I went through the adoption process. They gave me paperwork to fill out about my Cherokee ancestry. The agency had to send the paperwork to the Cherokee Nation. From there, they had to find my family’s tribe to see if there were any living relatives. I was informed that if my baby was born and adopted before the Cherokee gave permission, they had the right to come and take him from his parents at anytime. It was an excruciatingly stressful time.
