I remember when they came out with MTV2 as a response to complaints that there was so little actual music videos on the original MTV. Their slogan was "Where has all the music gone?" or something like that. Within the first year it felt like MTV2 had pretty much dropped all their music video programming and was showing the same stuff as MTV.
No, the concern of anti-abortionists is that they feel that an unborn child still has the right to life. Most pro-choicers seem to either ignore or not realize this, and keep shouting "it's the woman's choice", as if that were the flip side of the anti-abortionist argument. The discussion that needs to be had is not "does a woman have a right to an abortion?", it's "when does a human gain the right to life?"
I completely agree. 99% of harassment is done for personal reasons, ie, the harasser wants to feel powerful knowing they are causing someone to feel a certain way (and making someone feel bad is usually much easier than making them feel good). When you give them nothing, they quickly move on to another target that will give them what they want. Only when you get someone mentally unstable do they continue to harass someone with no feedback whatsoever.

Just remember, you have the right to be offended. You do not, however, have the right to *not* be offended.
