h/t for the share.
1. Not being taught how to avoid this kind of behavior (which should be basic human nature)
2. Being directly instructed to behave this way. (and told they will be protected)
I hope for the former, but policy makers would be idiots to ignore the prevailing sense of repression and violence that is being increasingly felt by the black community (and indeed everyone because of how public this stuff all is.)
I fear the latter, because the citizen police officers will be replaced with stormtroopers and jackboots.
Also, if you watch enough of this video, there is a consultation about what to charge her with, in other words, they kidnapped her and then called it arrest afterword.
has lost any loyalty I had over the amount of things that have gone wrong with this car.
There is currently no single cause of stress in our marriage so great as the repairs on this vehicle. I'm done, but I can't reasonably afford another vehicle that isn't going to be in danger of the same problem. Either way, it won't be a Honda.
We need 8+ seats, and need a car with a decent repair record over 100k miles. We have to buy it used, and spend as little on it as possible, because there really isn't a way for us to finance it.
I hate the fact that cars cost as much as the houses we're looking at right now, because that means there isn't a decent secondary market for them. WTF, country, stop buying stuff on credit. You inevitably drive the cost of everything up.
This is a great article with some fantastic points about how kids can learn real lessons about adult issues without ever discussing the actual adult issues. This is a practice we've adopted with our kids (just because you can... doesn't mean you should, if someone says stop you stop, etc.) and it seems to be working out really well.
You don't have to talk about sex to talk about healthy relationships, because relationships are not about sex.
Good on Cartoon Network for having a show like this, and great on the producers and writers for tackling really big issues in a creative, and accessible way.
As for the show, it's something I'd consider letting my kids watch when they get a little older. In addition to the funky art, it's annoying that, even though most of the cast is androgynous/feminine, the protagonist is yet again male - I wish we could move away from the assumption that if the protagonist is female, boys won't watch (or read) it. That's only true if our expectations make it true. I have no problem with the "gay" aspects of the show, though. Yes, I'm sure it promotes acceptance of non-traditional families (which I'm fine with anyway), but I really don't think that's the point here.
As the OP article points out, this show is talking about healthy and unhealthy relationships without sexualizing the context. If the show's writers had been careful to make each fusion a (superficially, since these characters are explicitly non-human and apparently non-gendered) male/female one, that would do more to sexualize the context. Not only are male-female pairings the vast majority in society, they are seriously oversexualized not only in the media but in our culture at large. Witness, for example, the conversations about whether men and women can ever really be "just friends". I find it really refreshing to see a show that apparently is refusing to buy into that sex-obsessed stereotype by just refusing to worry about it. Now if we could get some adult programs to take a similar approach, we might be on to something.
