That's going to have to pass as a debate of the issues, I guess!

Can't blame you, if I were a fanboy of an ideology that distorts history, placing MEN or yourself as the problem. No doubt the issues would certainly be the last thing I would dare to debate. But REALLY pink unicorns? oh sorry........invisible pink unicorns. What a hoot, thanks for the chuckle!

So, back in the day Sesame Street used to produce 130 episodes a year. Now it produces 26??

Jesus Christ. We let this happen? We're all awful people. :(

Also, no lie, just now learning that Mr. Hooper died before i was born. I honestly thought that hppened in the mid-90s. My entire life has been a lie!

...in a scientifically accurate way, I mean. Don't just jump out at them from behind a trash can or something.

The association of man hating with feminism must stop.
The man hating associated with feminism must not.

I'm skeptical that this would ever work, but I'd love to see them try.

+Rebecca Watson If the woman in question was actually raped, perhaps she didn't have at the time a real sense that intra-marital rape exists. Intra-marital rape is almost impossible to prove unless there is extreme violence in it.

+Mark Hinterthuer  - I saw in your blog entry (http://www.mentallythere.com/2015/08/pro-choice-proud.html) that the survival rate for fetuses born prematurely at 21 weeks is 0%, 22 is 10%, and 23 is 35%. Why would anyone want to limit a woman to getting an abortion at will to  20 weeks is stupid. Even a 35% survival rate at 23 weeks seems too low.
