Those words describe my perspective, which is not judgmental. Cancel that, you are right, I was being judgmental. Now I'm being sarcastic. And/or sardonic.
CONTROVERSIAL : of, relating to, or arousing controversy controversy : a discussion marked especially by the expression of opposing views : dispute There is no implication of judgement in this definition. If you add something to the definition, or put words like wonderful in my mouth, that is your perception (problem), Clearly we dispute as a result of controversy. Your perceived context is just wrong.
Everyone on slashdot is trying to demonstrate their intelligence by proving their ignorance, including me. I have met some winners recently.
Dude you are so wrong. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/controversial
No. Calling something controversial is not a judgement statement. It is a statement that there is complexity and more than one opinion.
They're already there.
Surprised how many people interpreted my comment that way. I don't find having this IFV treatment to be controversial. I find *not* having it to be controversial.
I would appreciate any solutions to my social problems.
Or just adopt.
Wha...? Reread the summary and what I wrote. It's the opposite of your interpretation.
I don't me seeing something as controversial as controversial. Explain to me how having a child with issues is better for the world, for the parents, or for me than having or adopting a child without? I predict no response.
Why a banana in the photo?
I should have been a doctor.
One thing that worries me is that this choice seems to be on the rise, especially with Downs Syndrome (possibly due to the trend of more births late in life, where that lateness reduces the chances of another successful pregnancy). I see it everywhere now in the progressive community in which I live. I would go so far as to speculate that in centuries past, child sacrifice may have been nature's way of dealing with such defects. Humans that would not have survived in the natural world are kept alive in our increasingly artificial world. Nice talking to you.
Watch the daily show from last night to see what unnatural things are natural. And I didn't mean any offense to anyone who has children with "defects". It's just a choice I would have trouble making.
