“I still don't understand how hemophilia doesn't describe a person turned on by blood. My daughter learned some basic Latin root words and thought we were sharing WAY too much about a relative once, and warning her about him too, when we told her to be careful around him because of his hemophilia.”
“Just keep it all closed. Never send an email or facebook her. Block her on facebook, and when your son starts his own account, block her from seeing that one too. As long as you give her any whisper of contact you open the wound. Let her try to put the boy in her past. Your teen-mom fueled guilt doesn't help anyone. It may make you feel better to think you're doing good, but how must it feel to that woman? "So near yet so far" just has to be worse than so far and so far.”

“I agree that all contact should be stopped immediately. Borderlines thrive on drama and will create it whenever an opportunity arises. Noncontact is the only real defense. I think the adoptive mom has not paid enough attention to the fact that this was an INVOLUNTARY adoption for the birth parents. Expecting them to act like birth parents who voluntarily agreed to an adoption is just plain unrealistic. As far as the birth parents are concerned, the system stole their baby, and so did the adoptive parents. Telling the birth mother she wasn't stable enough (ie not good enough) to see the baby, but could only look at pictures, was never going to be received well. Further contact will only create more conflict.
With no contact at all and the passage of a few years, the birth parents will no doubt have another baby or two, and hopefully feel less wounded about the loss of this one. Not necessarily a good thing for the future children, but definitely the best outcome for the adopted child.”
“Reminds me of an old AbFab episide. "Is that what you want me to do, Saffy? Just use the TOILET like everyone else? Like a poor person, Darling? On the TOILET! 'Oh sorry, Mum can't take your call, she's on the TOILET.' No thank you! I will never be too poor for a colonic!"”

“Colonic irrigation is no joke ,its not to be snoofed at sweetie !”
“Yep, because EVERY SINGLE metal head out there rapes kids, right? I mean, that's what you're saying, isn't it? That his heavy metal persona, as well as being private, should have let them "connect the dots" and lead them straight to child rape.
It's people like you who put the West Memphis Three in prison. Linking long hair and loud music to violent crimes. I'm connecting the dots here and I'm thinking you're an uneducated, fairly sheltered, ignorant person. I worded that nicely.”
gmcinahuff on Oct 23, 2012 at 21:45:15
“No, Sorry Charlie, nowhere did I state every metal head rapes kids. However, this guy is obviously someone exhibiting behavior that fits pedophiles.
I also didn't say just because someone may exhibit odd behavior, they belong in jail - those again are YOUR words.
All I'm saying is keep a watchful eye on those around you. All this garbage spewing out of your mouth is hogwash.”
“ERs don't dole out chemo, or radiation. They'll give you morphine when you come in dying, and they'll diagnose you when you first get sick, but they won't treat you through the process. People DO die from lack of insurance.”

“They will kick you out of a hospital in 24 hours of being determined not treatable. They don't let their space go to waste, every patient must have a diagnostic code that proves they are getting treatment. Otherwise you are OUT!”
“We live in a nation where you can cut a bird's beak off while it's awake, keep it in a one square foot cage, fatten it with steroids, and then cut off it's head (again awake) and eat it,but you'll go straight to jail, you sicko, if you let it touch your junk!
Also, while the whole thing disgusts me, how are thoughts a crime now? The porn, yes, but the thoughts?”
laaambchop on Oct 3, 2012 at 06:10:56
“Is Child Pornography a Crime?
Yes, it is a federal crime to knowingly possess, manufacture, distribute, or access with intent to view child pornography (18 U.S.C. §2252). In addition, all 50 states and the District of Columbia have laws criminalizing the possession, manufacture, and distribution of child pornography. As a result, a person who violates these laws may face federal and/or state charges.”

“I think his point is that y'all are acting more disgusted by his thoughts than by the porn. Which is weird.”
serinakthomas on Oct 3, 2012 at 00:14:13
“He was asking for and recieveing child porn and having sex with his dog. These are all crimes not thoughts.”
adam25x on Oct 2, 2012 at 19:24:33
“His thoughts were not the crime. He was arrested for the porn, not the thoughts. Does that clear it up for you?”
VanTroi on Oct 2, 2012 at 19:19:17
“He wasn't arrested for his thoughts, try reading.”
““It was nice to be able to tell our story and show toddler breastfeeding in a way we knew would not be manipulated,” she writes.
I have news for you. A four year old, even a three year old, is no longer a toddler. I breast fed my toddlers. I stopped before they were pre-schoolers. I didn't do it on magazine covers.”

“Yeah for you, you sound petty and jealous. Get over yourself.”
“Why would you tell people that? If somebody told me I stunk so bad that people were complaining, that it was so awful that it didn't even merit a warning or a request that I shower or buy stronger deodorant, I would not be bragging about it online. Or anywhere.”
“I quit high school in 1994 because of that kind of stuff. I honestly thought I was the only gay person I would ever meet and that if anyone found out, I'd be in danger. Everything bad was "so gay" and every ref who made a call against our team was "such a fag". Gay was a horrible, shameful, completely negative thing to be. I mean, no one ever said "I love your shoes, they're so gay" or "He's my favorite singer ever, such a fag". Even sick is now a compliment, but not gay somehow. I'm just glad that kids now have the It Gets Better Project and GSAs and things like that.”

“Sorry to hear about your experiences in high school but I think you did the best thing by removing yourself from that environment. Hope you still got your diploma somehow and are doing well. You sound quite intelligent and capable. Keep on keepin' on, CDMelty.
“If we're going to be a society that kills people in cold blood (it's not a crime of passion to flip a switch for a paycheck after years of appeals), the least we can do is provide them the final meal of their choice. We are better than them. It should never be America's goal to sink to the lowest level. The death penalty is supposed to be about justice, not revenge. When you kill people, you can do it your way. We like to be humane about it.”
“The question isn't, "How could they submit the question with a misspelled word?" The question is, "How can we let kids get to seventh grade without knowing how to spell?"”
colred on Aug 16, 2012 at 14:00:58
“Agreed, but the number of misspellings here on HuffPo when people are formulating a thought or in the passion of the moment tells me that it is kind of human to misspell things in the heat of the moment. An English paper should be edited and revised, but other things not so much. We often ask more of our kids than we ourselves are willing or able to do.”
“Sadly, I know grownups that still make that mistake...or misteak?”
teiladay on Aug 16, 2012 at 15:29:06
“It's not the spelling that really matters here but the obvious lack of education related to their own bodies. Basic education! No 7th Grader should have to ask anything about how babies are made, what happens during sex, etc.. Ridiculous! What I find utterly unacceptable is the fact that our education system is failing students while clambering for more money that they don't need, and parents refuse to tell their children about basic mating principles because they are inept at parenting. Unbelievable.
Point blank- I'm so thankful that I didn't have parents inclined to do something so dumb as to deny me information that all 7th graders should've known when they were 5,6, or 7 years old.”
“Wait, did they ban it or just stop serving it? I mean, will the pork police come raid your dorm room if you bring in a bacon cheeseburger you bought off-campus? Because that would be a ban. This sounds less like a ban and more like a negligible menu change.”
“I remember when my daughter's 18 year old babysitter came out to her parents during a college break. They took it well, I guess, but when she got back to school she was told that the tuition check had been cancelled. Her parents weren't answering the whole and when she got home to find out what the deal was, they'd changed the locks. She slept on my couch for 3 months with only what she'd had packed in her car to take to the dorm. Her parents, who'd adopted her in infancy, said they would never have "accepted her from the agency" had they known what they were getting. Ahhh, Christian love.”
sarajames2 on Aug 8, 2012 at 19:04:41
“Please do not blame the parent's actions on "Christian love." I am a Chrisitian and I do not share the same reviewpoint as these parents. There may be many Christian's that do, but also many Christians that do not.”
“The ears thing I understand. It's no different, imo, than having a facial birthmark removed or a cleft lip fixed. But then for the supportive and on-her-side charity to say "Oh well your nose and chin are ugly too, so we'll fix them" was uncalled for.”

“Her eyebrows need a total re-do. I mean, was she born with those eye-brows??
I wonder if she could have a full facial transplant. I know it would be expensive and painful, but if she is going to be beautiful, what does it matter? Being beautiful is more important than anything else in the world.”
“You don't expect a kid to take sides when parents divorce, even when one is just a step parent. These kids saw him as a father figure for a long time and only the most selfish mother would make them choose. You don't make a kid take sides, and not taking sides isn't a sign of "bad behavior".”

“Their father was and always will be Bruce Willis, and Kutcher was not a father figure, just a wife betrayer. They don't need an immature idiot as their father. No where did it say that she asked them to choose. This woman gave up her career for a long period to be a stay at home mother for these kids, and she deserves more respect from them. Demi's mistake was getting involved with this guy in the first place. Unfortunately we can't help who we fall in love with.”
