    See, why does it have to be either or? I feel like this status quo is bad for everybody, not just women, but boys and men too. Sure, the power structure favors men in many ways, but money and power...

    Stumbled onto this on Facebook, and it seemed very relevant to this discussion :)

    I've been really astounded by some of the comments I've seen on this. When pointed out that dogs can seriously injure or kill livestock, my favorite comment was "but these are PETS that people...

    Well now you're just shame shaming.

    I think there are always variations in how individuals perceive things, or subsets of people perceive thing, but OVERALL, I think yes, society as a whole is more likely to be OK with a tomboyish girl...

    This is all dependent on current societal norms though. Not long ago, little boys were dressed in pink too :)

    I don't think it's that people care deeply, as much as it is an interesting optical illusion and illustration of how people perceive the exact same things so differently. Which if you want to get...

    I think for a long time it's just been more acceptable for a girl to be a "tomboy" than it is for a boy to explore "girlish" things. Which is a shame. But it's also hard to fight, it's a pretty...

    I think people who are on the internet a lot are getting tired of the word because everything is "shaming" these days. Anything negative you might think, or any opinion you might have, is "shaming"...

    It's weird, even knowing what color it actually is, and seeing the corrected images (corrected for white balance, etc), it still looks white and gold to me pretty much no matter what.

    Strange...

    I'm actually curious, when did this "no eating before riding" thing become such a... thing? I remember it from my youth, and I know horse digestive systems are tricky buggers, but most of us aren't...

    That's not exactly how it works, though. In the vast majority of cases where insanity is shown, defendents end up confined in an institution for longer than their sentence would have been. In the...

    Exactly this.

    Actually my first thought was Walter White from Breaking Bad. Maybe without all the murder, but the using people, always looking for a way to get ahead, seeing others as competition...

    This largely depends on the prison. It can vary state by state, and then there is quite a lot of variance between state run and private/for profit prisons. Medical care does not always include...

    Heh, my husband makes chili when it snows. Sure warms you up quick! :)

    It just seems ... inadequate. But then again the hard thing about law is that is needs to be as black and white as possible. And issues of insanity and mental health are impossibly nuanced/grey. ...

    Exactly. If anything it will make him worse. But nobody cares because he's locked away.

    I think the legal standard for "insanity" is woefully lacking. Just "knowing right from wrong" does not...

    Yeah, I can understand why it played out that way. By the same token, I imagine that in some situations that "ramp up" can create a lot of anxiety in a person. I would think that there are cases...

    I think it's partly for safety, or if there's possibility of arrest or worse-than-normal criminalism or what have you.

    Oh but she didn't "spank," she used her "baby swatter."

    Either way, in many places spanking is a "parental choice," and if no one calls, and there's no child care people seeing marks, who's going...
