Thank you for this. I'm still trying to learn that I'm worthy even if I'm not perfect. This is especially difficult for me because of mental illness, and most people are not understanding of that.

It's becoming quite a well known theory that links very closely with imposter syndrome, I think.

Sounds like you are blaming women for Trump's election. For being feminists or for not voting.
At one time women were considered to blame for domestic violence, because they had annoyed their husband or some such nonsense. Most folk have moved beyond that opinion now. But your arguments have some parallels with this type of reasoning I think.

This was excellent. I especially appreciate the nuanced analysis regarding restorative justice. One needn't dehumanize perpetrators in the pursuit of stopping their bad behavior; in fact, it often leads to perpetrators getting away with things because it's hard to see them as complete monsters.

consent not being respected as a valid reason to say no wasnt what got him fired. pursuing the author despite her quite clearly saying no wasnt the reason he lost his job. our societies are no where near that advanced! he was fired because the author brought it to the attention of his boss that he had quite clearly breached a customers' privacy. unfortunately, breaching a customers' privacy is of more concern to most bosses that pursuing a women who repeatedly says no

Obama is more humble, as he did come from an unconventional upbringing. Trump (or Strump as I like to call him), is like a male version of Veruca Salt all grown up, blend with an archetypal 80s evil businessman and 80s school bully.

Humbleness is a trait that I often wish more people had.
When a grown man yells and raves about this and that, like a disobedient child, it doesn't make me respect that person.

Should have never been imprisoned in the first place, but the wprst crime in the US is embarrassing the imperialist war machine.
Americans are an indoctrinated bunch; if one brings forth proof the government and its apparatus are intentionally doing great harm, you get punished and labeled a traitor where the apparatus gets rewarded and celebrated for the intentional taking of innocent lives.
Americans in some ways are far too reactionary to understand the wrongs committed in their names.
Graham Seth Moore
01/18/2017 at 19:58
My first reaction is, great! My second reaction is, if you were going to commute her sentence, then why didn't you do it 7 years ago?!
I guess better late than never, but I'm still a little annoyed at Obama for this.
01/18/2017 at 22:35
I was thrilled to read this.
And I'm worried.
The period between Friday and May will probably be the most dangerous of her imprisonment. I fear that some will try to push her to suicide before May.
We need to keep the spotlight on Ms. Manning until she is safely out of there.

IMO the problem is less that white people have opinions and more that we tend to have *ignorant* opinions. We need to shut the f*** up and listen.

We actually had an incident at the high school where I work and when a black student asked my opinion, I told her, flat-out, "I'm white. My opinion on the matter doesn't really have any importance here because I will never understand what it is to be afraid for my safety because of the color of my skin."

I had no idea that even in the Gay and Lesbian community there can be problems for non-white, non-middle class, non-cisgender, non-binary people. Why would they call themselves LGBT when they ignore the 'B' and the 'T'?
01/19/2017 at 04:22
This is slightly off topic but I have a genuine question about language. Is 'queer' ok now when used within the correct context? It's probably a stupid question but I guess I grew up hearing it as a homophobic slur but I've noticed it being used more and more lately in non-offensive settings. I don't want to use terminology incorrectly but saying LGBTI is such a mouthful sometimes!
01/19/2017 at 07:38
You know, this makes me think of the time my trans girlfriend went to our campuses gay/straight alliance. The guy in charge was of course a white cisgender male. My girlfriend suggested that maybe they shouldn't do a drag show at their event later in the year, as drag can be kind of offensive to trans and non-binary folks. She was basically shot down. She didn't go back.

Also, vegans, not everyone's body assimilates plant protein so great. Those with food allergies & digestive issues actually *need* animal products to be healthy. For me, no animal products = no periods. (Yes, even with supplements, meal plans, etc.)
01/17/2017 at 22:32
Eating too much sugar, fat, or salt is not a moral issue, but having animals killed for food when there are other options available is definitely a moral issue.
Cruelty to animals still matters, even if the cruelty is inflicted to produce "food".
