Lawmaker Wants To Ban Students From Wearing Axe Body Spray

Lawmaker Wants To Ban Students From Wearing Axe Body Spray

Commented Nov 28, 2013 at 08:49:34 in Teen

“I don't like the way Axe products smell but why is it the responsibility of everyone else to protect the canary in the coal mine? in other words, why do legislatures think that it is appropriate to ban scented sprays, or peanuts, or almonds, or laundry detergent, because a minority of students have allergies? someone please explain why my kids' allergies are the world's problem? they're not and this kind of legislation has got to stop!”

“BSA these miscreants are "positive" influences on scouts and suited to lead a scout troop? I think you need to look at your criteria for evaluating what constitutes suitable leadership and start evaluating moral character on more than just sexual orientation, disregard for the integrity of ancient public sites seems pretty morally bankrupt to me.”

“if the welfare of the minor is really the issue here then every 18 year old male or female who is dating an underage female or male in this county should be equally charged; failure to do so evidences the discriminatory nature and illegality of these charges and this punishment.”

DON McDONALD on Oct 4, 2013 at 15:04:32

“True...here in California ANY sex (including "heavy petting") involving someone under 18 is a crime by both parties, even if both are under 18...the whole state would spend it's youth in jail if it was enforced!”

“Please read my comment, so that you might be able to understand just a little as to why. This order is not taking away from the soldiers, it's just enforcing what has been on the books for decades. Ignorance is not bliss and unless there is someone that can shed light on these types of subjects for you or unless you have first hand experience in the military a comment stating civilian rights doesn't apply to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) or the members of our Armed Forces. These men and women all know what they are getting into when they sign on the line and the military has been very lenient with them during this time of conflict over seas.”

“Dr. Phil is right in trusting your gut, but before you get to that trust you have to give yourself permission to do what is right for you irrespective of how it affects others. often people keep toxic people in their lives because they don't want to "hurt" anyone or "disappoint" anyone. when its you or them that is going to be disappointed or hurt, it's very much okay to have it be them. give yourself permission to trust your gut and then do so!”

“Toxic people are very aware of that tendency in others, and they use it to their benefit. They know you will rescue them. It's ironic, but when you cease to rescue them, they are no longer friends. They will only be a friend to you as long as you meet their demands/needs. In any healthy relationship there should be a give and take, not one-sided.”

you love your kids that is ALL that matters. people will talk about you, to you, about your kids, and to your kids, who cares, just because they talk doesn't mean you have to listen. your daughter is her own person, she will be who she is and there is nothing you can do but love her, guide her, love her, provide her opportunities for education, love her, provide her opportunities for experiences, and oh yeah......LOVE HER!

“"We hear it constantly from the media and politicians: Children of queer parents will turn out to be queer themselves. Children without a mother and a father will become confused about gender."

She didn't state the 'logic' as you call it as though it were her own, she stated that we as a society are constantly bombarded with that way of thinking. Perhaps you should read more carefully before jumping to conclusions.”

“gun control is perhaps the beginning. we need to care for the human beings in our society that have mental health issues. we can no longer simply turn a blind eye to mental health issues and try to sweep those with disorders under the carpet. we need to consider mental health just like any other health issue, we need to be vigilant in screening for AND treating issues. just like people are encouraged to get cancer screenings and cholesterol screenings, society (insurance/ medicare/medicaid coverage to start) should encourage and make a priority the treatment of mental issues. unless or until we, as a society, change how we deal with mental health, all the gun regulations in the world won't matter one bit.”
