    Re: Boys Can Have Periods Too!

    If you really want to play semantics, have fun. I'd have figured you understood the point which is that students would be motivated to learn and support whatever the teacher was teaching in the...

    Re: Amazon Fires - Manufactured Crisis by the Left

    First, nuclear energy was intended as an example. I am not making an argument over specific energy policy. What I can say is that while 34 reactors have been shut down, only 2 are scheduled to be...

    Re: Mind Trapped by: The age of Propaganda

    You make some good arguments. However, the CNN business section isn't the front page. It isn't the home page for its website. Most readers would never even find that story. It stands to reason...

    Re: Mind Trapped by: The age of Propaganda

    Not sure it is exactly the exception. I cannot prove it is the norm per se. Just wondering, did anyone get fired? You say it was widely condemned, but I'm not sure the word widely is correct. It...

    Re: Boys Can Have Periods Too!

    It is the default position that anything a teacher teaches may be tested. It would be your burden to explain how this is incorrect. Obviously, the exact questions on a test are not predictable, but...

    It is a big assumption that students are graded on tests which are based on the things the teacher is asking them to learn??? I think this is the default position. If you have evidence to the...

    Re: Boys Can Have Periods Too!

    This is really outside the scope of the OP, but it is, I think, a fun side-conversation so I'll engage. The answer is maybe. Again, I'd use the pronoun that makes the most sense. I cannot think of...

    The claim is that the Earth is dying and we have less than 12 years (or something approximating that number) to make significant change if we want to save it. That stupid girl from Sweden is going...

    Isn't it possible that this is more nuanced than either complete B.S. or absolute gospel? The 'whistleblower' may be both biased and truthful. Trump may be both lying and not guilty of an...

    Not a slippery slope. We both agree that there is no law against being an ahole. More importantly, we both agree that such a law should not exist. Now, we can disagree on whether not calling...

    So, you are arguing that Democrats are against oppression. They are campaigning on the concept of social justice, among other language. If they didn't believe oppression existed, then why would...

    Sounds fine if that's what the company and its employees agree to. When you start your business, this is certainly something you may offer to your employees.

    My argument is that the Democrats have based their policy on the neo-Marxist argument of oppressed classes. The fact that no one knows where they draw the line adds to the divisiveness. If I tell...

    I think this goes to the meaning and scope of the 1st amendment which isn't solely about speech. Freedom of expression and association are in there too.
