I know I am treading on thin ice here but I also hear the words "girl, gay, poor, Jew, Muslim, etc. " when I listen to The Talk. I know my mom had an ongoing talk with me over the years about what is right, what is wrong and what is expected of any socially conscious responsible person, regardless of their race, religion or other background.

Why do you assume that this message of truth that will keep their children safe is all that these parents teach their kids? They also teach their children to be strong, to achieve their goals and to love and be proud of who they are. I heard these messages in this short film & I've heard it in real life. It seems to me you weren't listening. It seems to me that your negativity overshadowed the message. Try listening. Try empathy.

Its not "fake news"... It was a philosophical metaphorical treatise. Plato wrote it to talk about so called Utopian ideals and how they don't work out. Just because modern readers are too uneducated to understand this does not make it fake news. This topic drives me crazier than the new age hooey people keep spouting about Atlantians...they were never real, they were always ideas...

Rediculous photos the reason you don't have a dog in your bed with your baby is the same reason as why the baby should not sleep in the bed with the parents!! Someone Momma, Daddy or the dog could roll over on the baby and suffocate it. Please don't portray potentially deadly scenarios in the guise of comedy.

Pretty good advice except for the first Can I Do anything for you? Some with mental illness will NEVER think you have done enough no matter what you do. If you are a very closely attached loved one you can do all that is possible and say all those other things suggested but some mentally ill loved ones will not realize how bad they can make you feel trying to justify things. Asking to help in any way might be setting yourself up to a certain degree.

I'd like a reference for higher mortgage rates. It could be down payment amount, credit history or income. Either you qualify or you don't. I've owned several properties and gender was never a consideration. It makes me angry to see these wild accusations meant only to rile people. Why is it our goal is to make someone a victim? Stop it.

The gender wage gap is a myth, it doesn't exist, stop regurgitating this idiocy. Study after study has thoroughly refuted such nonsense, and clearly show any difference is due to difference in lifestyle and career choices.
If this were true, every "greedy corporation" would be staffed entirely by women. Don't spread ignorance as a political tool.

It's probably worth noting that you should also contact your representatives when you are in favor of something, or agree with what they are doing, not just when you are against something or disagree with what they are doing. Otherwise you have the opposite problem.

I can't believe any reputable publishing house would publish his article. There is a long verifiable history of discrimination, hatred and mistreatment by the European colonizers (primarily the English, Spanish, French and Dutch) against multiple groups at various times. Those groups include the Irish, the Italians, the Chinese, the Japanese, the Polish, American Indians, African-Americans, Mexicans, Jews, Catholics. The list is quite exhaustive.
