Professor Claims Racial Discrimination, But Former Student Remembers Incident Differently

“She was plan rude and the students addressed her quite appropriately. I think she has a problem. She could have given her opinion without all that white male oppressor stuff. I am not a white male. She used emotionally manipulative language at the very least.”

“It is a given that racism is never acceptable however open discussion of different experiences and view points is essential. Seems like this topic could have been okay in a communication class if open discussion was acceptable to the professor. It does not feel good to being treated like the villain so these men had a good point. By the way, I am not a white male.”

Lawrence Dalton on Dec 5, 2013 at 14:48:33

“This was supposed to be an "English" class, not african-American studies or Racism in America. This teacher is guilty of trying to indoctrinate racism, not teach English.”

“You are reading stuff into my comment that is simply not there. Anyone who does have children is childless. It is not an offense comment. It is a descriptive comment. You can describe it any way you want. I am not in favor of people who don't want children to have children just because I find it rewarding. The only time it becomes a moral issue is when someone has children and then abuses or neglects them. If you look at the other comments you will see a lot of critical comment from people who do not want children.”

“I agree with you actually. I would never pressure anyone into having kids. I suppose my comment came off that way. It has been the best thing ever for me. There are some childless people who talk as though having kids is the worst thing and that only childless people have the good life especially after seeing a comedy sketch such as this one. The joys of having children are great but having children is not for everyone.”

“Fine--I probably should not let the childless people in on the secret. Having kids is the best thing ever with these "complications".”

Riiings on Nov 22, 2013 at 15:18:04

“The word "childless" is the most offensive thing I hear from parents. It indicates that there is a void or something missing.

Many of us our CHILDFREE - we do not care for children, we do not care for being a parent, and choose to focus our energy and resources in other directions. I would never judge someone for choosing to have a kid. Who are you to just me for choosing to not have a kid?”

InedaName on Nov 18, 2013 at 18:02:33

“Childless = wanting children but physically incapable of having them

Child-free = not wanting children”

Mike Hadidiy on Nov 18, 2013 at 15:48:35

“I think for you this is true. This would not be true for everybody however. Some people are ill prepared to deal with children and should not have them. I put myself in this category. I simply don't have the patience to deal with them.”

“I have no children, yet I completely agree with you! Unless you are curing cancer, etc., bringing another human life into the world and raising him/her with love and care, has to be one of the greatest accomplishments for any human individual.”

“I'm sure there are plenty of children from abusive and/or neglectful parents that wish dearly that their parents hadn't been pressured by shortsighted people like you who think *everyone* should be a parent.”

“This was obvious when I was a kid. The skinny girls kept hoping those training bras would do the trick as they headed into high school. Now of course now the embarrassed ones are the overweight 2nd, 3rd, 4th graders.”

leskataus on Nov 5, 2013 at 15:41:00

“I was a skinny girl who was already past training bras when I was 11 years old. I used to be very self conscious because I developed earlier than most other girls in my school and I used to be accused to stuffing my bra.”

“I used to be the only fat girl in Jr. High now I'm one of the only skinny girls at the class reunion 30 years later. The tables have turned... Even with the extra weight, thankfully, I didn't hit puberty at age 9...They've got a LONG way to go...sheesh.”

“Am I the only one who thinks these photos funny ? Men and women are attracted to different things. I am not even sure a gay man would find these poses attractive.”

“You're probalby right! However, they pulled off the tongue and cheek poses really well. Good job, guys!”

cisio64123 on Oct 20, 2013 at 20:12:15

“I agree , they are poking a bit of fun at the typical sexy babe model stereotype. I think it is ( and is meant to be ) both funny and thought provoking. The fact that men are ridiculous looking in the same poses and outfits that are accepted as sexy for women is saying a lot about what we think is sexy based on gender.”

“Predictions are silly. Chuck Smith just died. He was indirectly instrumental in the Jesus movement among young people in the late 60's and 70's. I imagine that many of these young people left the movement but I will guess that many stayed too and joined both conservative and mainline churches. One factor that is effecting church attendance is the increasing business of people's lives especially working mothers.. Sunday comes around and they want to rest and read the paper. They no longer feel like they have to go to church to be good people. The spiritual hunger that churches fill is still there.”

“As a Wiccan, I don't NEED to travel to a specific building to worship the Goddess and the God-in fact, it's both impossible and absurd to try to confine Them within walls. I tell people that I'm in my church every time I step outside, and there's quite a bit of truth in that assertion-when I'm outdoors and surrounded by nature, I feel truly in touch with Them and a peace that I NEVER felt as a kid being dragged to Sunday school or church. We create our sacred space when we set up our altars for ritual or religious worship, and when we're done we take them down and put them away until they're needed again. It's not permanent, but then again, neither is our current incarnation. Besides, we don't NEED formal times and days-we can stop and meditate while taking a walk, or doing something good for the planet like recycling or harvesting our own produce in the garden. Being Wiccan is not merely a religion, but more a way of life than anything else, and I find it far more spiritually fulfilling than my enforced Christian childhood. I do take my children to the Unitarian Universalist Sunday school, but that's because it's the only house of worship I can trust to give them a well-rounded education in ALL the religions of the world. But otherwise, I'm doing my own thing and am happier for it. Blessed Be!”

“I was my observation during the seventies that most young people became "born-again" because their lives were getting screwed up with drugs, or they were generally unhappy and they felt they were hitting rock-bottom. I politely attended many of these churches with friends, and when people got up and gave their "testimonies", it always started with a drinking, drug, or too much sext story. No one I witnessed ever said "I was happily going through life, found Jesus, and got even happier". Using Jesus as a crutch to fix a broken life is not a genuine "calling".

The spiritual hunger that fills churches also guides people in other directions.”

Paul Hitch on Oct 5, 2013 at 20:48:22

“The stats have consistently pointed to the almost fact that religion is and has been in decline. Religious decline has been correlated with the information revolution and educational levels.”

“I'm a non believer , but I don't understand why Christians have to go to church; that's where the trouble starts with this organized religions. It seems some church have such ill will toward other Christian churches . I read a comment that Catholics are not Christians because they never take their bible with them when they attend church.....I love this thought process . If you truly believe this whole Christian thing , then Why do you have to go and listen to some holy man every sunday”

“I do think that college students need to know that a very drunk person probably can not rightly consent to sex-no matter what sex they are. Got to remember that it is likely that both partners are probably equally drunk. There has to be a term for taking advantage of a person that is drunk. 20% statistic has got to be hugely inflated. I remember some young men being very persistent but that does not make them rapist. I am sure there are a few persistent women too-are they rapist too? Men need to learn to treat women with respect and certainly never, ever force themselves on them and women need to learn to treat men equally with respect as well. What we don't want is a bunch of hyper vigilant young people looking for abuse and victimization around every corner.”
