Re: 0879: "Lamp"

What exactly makes the joke that gross? Please explain, anyone. It seems like sperm or sexual arousal equals "gross/immature" in general.

Re: Abortion and Women's Rights

I don't now. The whole ..thing isn't applicable for men at all, thus I can't see it as an issue of different rights or standards men vs. women, morally.

Re: Abortion and Women's Rights

Your hypothetical 'we couldn't be bothered with a condom, and I was too lazy to get to a doctor for twenty weeks, and I don't actually want a baby' is a complete fallacy.

Re: Abortion and Women's Rights

Personally, I question whether or not a fetus has such a interest, but that's not really the point.

Because 'being born' doesn't mean 'everything works out'. Since I wish I would've never been born* I clearly do know that.
