I followed it -ahem - "religiously". It used to show up in my inbox automatically then I had to go seeking it out. Did the author just run out of things to discuss?Continue

"@ Angela Evangelia There is no visual description there about the history of Mohamad. You specifically mentioned sexual body parts of a 14-year old girl and an older male and sexual activity between them. You did not do the same…"

"@Angela Evangelia you said a specific set of words meant to evoke a specific image for the reader. You didn't just "say some words". You said a very specific set of words with a definite intent. If someone speaks of a "green…"

"You painted a very graphic and sexual image of a young girl and an adult man. @Unseen didn't even come close to advocating such. What he HAS discussed and originally brought up is the boundaries of a young girl (14 years old in his example…"

"It makes its validity as a true statement questionable and as our culture matures it becomes even more so. It's a sexist stereotype - put it to rest. And simple prenatal care does not satisfy me. A young, first time, mother needs all the…"

"No, it's not that they lack a sense of other's motives. Humans at very young ages (except in the case of conditions like autism) rapidly become adept at sensing the motives of others - it's how they develop necessary social skills.…"

"You mean young mothers in the U.S. and most of the Western world do not get or have available to them:  Prenatal care WIC Of course I know of instances of such being tossed out of the house by their own parents - that part is sadly common -…"

"The original purpose of the sex offender registries was to aid in investigation of new sex offenses and not to prevent them. No evidence exists that they have an inhibitory effect. In fact the state law enforcement officer who first proposed the…"

"I'm currently working with a legal argument among who's consequences is that a 14-year old girl has the right to consent to all of the above. But this is only a legal framework and not a social, cultural, or health one. Those other…"

"It assumes that a 14-year old girl ISN'T old enough to consent as a prior argument. It begs the question "Is a 14 year old girl old enough to consent to sex?" Probably a even more emotionally charged question than your original :D But…"

Yes you read right. How are you

Are you trying to create a domain name or site for yourself?

Ha,ha - you have got to be joking :) I don't know how many times someone tries to put my name in their computer - invalid - whatever....

I had to choose a URL, don't have one, so I asked my 'computer expert' and he said "I had to join' etc., so went back and couldn't find anything to join. Sorry for getting snippy. Programmers, generally, and I am with one, don't see the wood for the trees, and to a non-computer user like myself, it is very frustrating not to be able to go to a site, and work my way around it. So, if this was in Beta mode, does one have to join, or have a URL, or whatever else was on the drop down list?

The hyphen bit was in my name - windows computers often do not compute hyphens, so if the blog is produced on a windows machine,or a windows programme, it just may not take hyphens.

Thank you Richard - I just thought I was missing something. My name is hyphenated, and it wouldn't accept it - a common with Windows.

Tried to post on your blog page - 

Gun control - of any sort - will not happen in America - The Wild West is still in the psyche.
URL - What is that all about - and why doesn't it take hyphens, somebody is getting too clever for their own good.
