Where I live, there's pretty much no sexual shame for a woman to have sex, which eliminates the concept of this argument.
It hasn't eliminated anything, there is nowhere on this planet (outside a 1970's hippie commune) where a 15yo girl can have sex whenever she wants, with whoever she wants....AND....still have nothing to hide because all the parents are cool with it.
Disclaimer: I make no claims about this case in particular but at the end of the day, some males are violent arseholes, some females are manipulative arseholes. Violent aresholes ruin lives, manipulate arseholes ruin lives. It's not, as Feminists and MRA's would have you believe, a "problem with men" or vica-versa, it is, what it has always been - aresholes being arseholes. Arsehoes can be suprisingly difficult to spot (eg:Rolf Harris), I pity any 'peer' with a conscience who is asked by society to find the truth in an "alleged sex-crime".
While I do remember seeing the movie, I never felt it was something special. The idea is okay, but really stupid in the long run, guess we'll see if they can pull this off.
Anybody who ever served on active duty and handled classified information is just a bit hacked off at Her Majesty's cavalier attitude about, well, everything.
That's true, but comparing Hillary's sending and receiving emails that weren't marked as classified over a non-government server is absolutely NOTHING compared to Petraus' knowingly giving top secret information to someone with neither a need to know nor a security clearance. Remember Mata Hari? (I probably spelled that wrong)
Plus, his adultery is strictly against the USMJ code; people have gotten dishonorable discharges for that alone, and anyone else would have gotten time in Leavenworth for spilling secrets. Petraus got off not with a slap on the wrist, but a stern talking to.
I use the Gnu Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) to design book covers. It's an excellent free open source program that has three weaknesses -- its menu structure is completely illogical (but can be gotten used to), I can't find a full spectrum palette, and its text handling is so poor as to be useless.
Habital planets are so rare and far apart that alien life wouldn't be able to spread across the galaxy. Hell, even earth is so far away from the nearest possibly habitable planet that if we could travel 90% of the speed of light, it would take something like 10,000 years to get there. Much less a population and equipment and supplies enough to start a society.
Actually, we don't know if habitable planets are rare. We are finding a bunch and have barely look at what the universe holds. Now the traveling thing could be a problem, but maybe there are civilization on other planets that don't waste their time and resources killing each other and actually focus on science and space.
I live on a hill, so I guess I'm safe. Can't wait till I have waterfront property though.
I'm wondering what happens in North Dakota that requires drones with non lethal weapons to fly around? Are they planning on using this on the Native American population? Or maybe the wildlife? Or is it to keep them pesky Canadian rapists who illegally cross our border in check?
Of course aliens will invade, every time any country is invaded it's aliens. You can't invade your own country!
I was an alien once, but I didn't go to Thailand to invade it.
Actually, some of us do. For instance, those of us who try to follow Christ also, by definition, try to give at least some consideration to how Jesus defined it:
"27 You have heard that it was said to those of old,[c] 'You shall not commit adultery.' 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart."
(Matt. 5:27-28, NKJV)
The lesson: Big sins usually start off as small ones. Don't lust after other women, don't think about cheating, don't put yourself in the position where you might, don't neglect your marriage to the point where you feel you need to, and chances are pretty good that you won't.
We also try to remember that if God has forgiven us our sins against Him, then we also ought to be willing to forgive those who sin against us. Most marriages can be saved if both partners are willing to save it, and, sometimes, even if one of them is not.
The bible says it's okay for your daughters to get you drunk and have sex with you also.
