[xkcd] Rapture

(no subject)

You Are a New School Democrat

You like partying and politics - and are likely to be young and affluent.

You're less religious, traditional, and uptight than most Democrats.

Smoking pot, homosexuality, and gambling are all okay in your book.

You prefer that the government help people take care of themselves.

Interesting Topics

Highly-biased Texas State Board of Education votes to define marriage as "one man and one woman" and promote abstinence as main form of birth control in textbooks (Closed community, leave any replies you have here...)

My comment was to this post...

Parents, nowadays, are just too uncomfortable speaking with their children anymore. Many are afraid of what other parents will say about their child raising techniques and won't persue the actions that they should. My parents beat the tar out of me when I did something wrong and they talk to me when I ask questions. That's discipline and communication. Parents today are too young and too stupid. Children, no matter what age, need to be educated when they see/hear something sexual and explained to that there are correct ways to handle situations they are seeing. Plus parents need to turn off the televisions and take their children out with them sometime... :)

Another interesting 'essay' that I like... Gay Marriage Debate Thoughts: "The New American Schism"

I also believe that a ban on gay marriage is the denial of fundamental rights to someone and is unconstitutional. I've always thought this even before I found out my brother was gay. I never thought I would feel as strongly as I do now though.
