“Politics is a dirty game - but it would be so refreshing to have one, just one election where people didn't resort to name calling like this. It makes him look silly and sexist. Call her out on her policy platform - but leave the schoolyard name calling at home.”

“While I appreciate the sentiment in the song - working hard from nothing to achieve goals - I can't see it going over well if white kids sing the song. Since we aren't supposed to use the "n" word. Then the constant use of the f-bomb wouldn't like go over well at public events. This song has nothing to do with being Canadian - I'm all for a new anthem - but give me something that ALL Canadians can be proud to sing.”

“Asian governments MUST step up - and DEMAND an end to this. The leaders need to step out and say there is no medicinal benefit from ivory - that ivory statues have no value - and people caught with ivory will be penalized heavily and jailed. This species will be extinct if we don't see this come from the leaders of those nations that are the main consumers. I am sickened, saddened and disgusted by what is happening to these majestic creatures.”

“I am disgusted by this woman getting asylum here. I work with legitimate refugees who have seen their family members murdered by the military in their home nations - simply for having a differing political opinion than the ruling party. These people are desperate for a safe place, contribute to our country as soon as they are able to work, learn English and volunteer in the community. Yet our government deems that they aren't in enough danger and sends them back. Yet a sex offender is allowed to stay. Wrong!”

“I wasn't attempting to tar all men or teachers with the same brush. I was merely making the point that too many men view women/girls in a way that sexualizes them. Especially men in positions of power have an even greater responsibility not to abuse it.”

tgc1974 on Jun 1, 2014 at 02:27:30

“That's fair, but that's not the message you convey when you talk about the prevalence of, or culture of, sexualizing girls. By using those terms, it seems like you are asserting that it is the majority of the population that is guilty of these behaviours. I'm glad that isn't how you feel.

You also state that "he didn't even realize he was setting them up to believe this is normal male behaviour", which suggests that his actions are far more influential than those of the many, many, men in these girls lives who don't sexualize them. I would think/hope that these girls are able to understand that the inappropriate actions of small subset of the population are not representative of "normal" behaviour of the larger group.”

“His comments about 'pink shorts' and attitude towards his female students show how prevalent and seemingly common the culture of sexualizing girls has become. He made his female students feel uncomfortable and vulnerable - sadly he didn't even realize he was setting them up to believe this is normal male behaviour. In his position of trust he is supposed to be a role model of how women (and all students) should be treated. i give him an F.”

“the comments/attitudes of one demented individual do not a social movement make.. Tarring all with the same brush is vile behaviour, at the best of times ... trying to tar 'men' with THIS particular brush is ... well ... sad ... good luck with your love life, I suppose. Your comment gets an F, as well.”

tgc1974 on May 31, 2014 at 16:41:13

“He definitely deserves an "F", and your disdain, but I don't think this incident speaks to any cultural norms. Using this atrocious example to suggest that it is common behavior is, in my opinion, an unjustified leap, and an insult to teachers, and men in general. You cannot take the actions of one, and suggest they are representative of the actions of large and diverse groups.”

“Excellent assessment - I totally agree. Our culture is making girls feel they must look/act a certain way to be popular and as you said, without a boy/man, they are nothing. Girls need to be empowered by the other women in their lives so they feel valuable on their own - by their own merits. There is a lot of work to do to help ALL people feel valued on their own - whether or not they have a partner.”

“This mom chose not to vaccinate her child - her choice. But now her child can contract and more importantly to other parents - spread the disease. So, she needs to deal with the consequences. Her inconvenience pales in comparison to the parents who are dealing with sick children now. I do not support any type of bullying - but I don't think this woman is being bullied.”

“As a Canadian who has watched with horror the "stand your ground" murders in the news lately, I agree that blacks in the US (and here in Canada I dare say) are treated unfairly by the justice system. I don't think the solution is a separate legal system however. Then we'd be on a slippery slope to separate justice system for other minorities due to their unique history and unequal treatment in the current system. I am not sure how to fix the current system but I don't feel a separate system is the solution.”

“Since I'm not Catholic I may not understand all the details of their communion tradition, I wonder if this priest asked the other people taking communion if they are 'sinning' - extra marital affairs, premarital sex, masturbation, etc, before providing it? Isn't it for God to judge?”

Sue Roediger on Feb 8, 2014 at 01:04:07

“These days at Catholic funerals the priest reminds Catholics "who may not have been to church recently" that they must me "in the state of grace" in order to receive communion. Catholics know what that means. Don't jump on me -- I am EX catholic”

“When receiving communion a priest doesn't ask your sins, that's done during confession. When you register your car does the DMV employee ask you if you broke any vehicle laws during the year.”

“The way this young man is (mis)behaving I doubt he'll get to 25! He got too much fame, money and "yes men" way too soon.

“The issue is also to have PARENTS become more aware of what is going on with their children online. Limit time online, take away cell phones at night, have any computer in a public family area, talk to kids about what is/isn't appropriate, work with schools/community groups to have a cohesive approach to 'net safety and kid's security. The internet can't be regulated - so let's approach it from an angle that can have results.”

“I'm in NO way excusing this and I appreciate you giving the person the benefit of the doubt assuming they forgot to ask you for your name. But I'm thinking if I had forgotten to ask for a customer's name and phone number and took dozens of passport photos in a day, I might want to find a way to identify the customer that didn't mean going through those dozens of envelopes to find the right photos when someone came in. However, if they had given you a slip that matched the number on the envelope that held your photos then no wording was necessary. I tried to think of another way the person who made the error could have identified you under the circumstances. I suspect if it had happened to me I might have been identified as "older white lady" - which is true. It may also show that in the world of customer service we may all need to make sure we give our name/phone number when we have something to pick up. Just my 2 cents.”

“As a woman who has breastfed three children, was a La Leche League leader and labor support doula I think this is crazy! Not every mom can breastfeed and to legislate that a woman must breastfeed for two years is another attempt by men to control women's bodies. With the attack on reproductive rights in the US (and other nations) and now this I am wondering what century I'm living in. We seem to be going backwards to a time when women were chattel and their functions controlled by "smarter" (yes sarcasm) men.”
