    Free advice: if you know someone who was raped, it's kind of a jerk move to tell them "well you shouldn't have gotten involved with a future rapist...duh!" I can't fathom the disdain you hold for women who've been raped within marriage, to presume that there was no change in behavior, that the woman should have seen the signs but (through failing to interview him well enough first I guess) was too dumb to see those signs. I can assure you, however, that fear of that kind of disdain does affect reporting rates. It kills. Just as common sense and foolproof would be for rapists not to rape. It's just as realistic a request. Don't worry though. This is RPFs, so it is more popular to view the women into!ved as idiots, the guys as oppressed, and the claims as disingenuous. I could say "I pray this doesn't happen to you or yours," but your point of view is the false confidence that it can't. I don't think I'll be back for awhile.

    Then maybe your skepticism is more insulting than you intend on this one. It happens, which is what my point was about proposing avoiding premarital sex as part of a catch-all solution. In fact, it might be more of an issue since you're less likely to know what your new spouse likes in bed until you're locked in matrimony. Moreover, there's appetite and then there's APPETITE. I agree about the new book, and that goes both ways. The thing is, sometimes the book is swapped on you when you're unable to do anything about it. When you're left lying there trying to figure out how the hell it all happened, staunching up the blood, and rushing to get the laundry started, it's not that helpful to reflect that you might've been on a different page. Anyway, I'll leave the guys to discuss rape and how women love to cry wolf about it. I'm honestly tired of hearing about it for the past couple of decades for some reason.

    Actual, violent rape does happen within marriages. I'm not talking about the twisted nonsense being characterized as rape these days. I'm not talking about waking someone up with kisses and touches. I'm talking about a woman just having given birth and still healing from stitches being told she doesn't get to say no. I'm talking about someone who has simply had too long a day to deal with the elaborate fantasies her husband demands, begging off and saying no, and having that choice forcibly taken away. The standard of proof remains the same. There is no "pass" once there's a ring on the finger; the wife doesn't become your private sex doll and lose the right to consent. I wonder if you'd feel the same way if the wife in the scenario decided, since they're married, she could tie him up and use a strap-on on the husband against his will? Nope. Rape. And I hope she goes to jail for it.

    Personally, sometimes the official story has been true, and sometimes not. The truth seems to be somewhere in between. Claiming this was some kind of record was idiotic; there's no way to prove it. I do get the sense that viewership numbers are higher than reported (they are reporting numbers of people who watched on television, but almost everyone I know streamed it at work). There is also the matter of when the "empty white tarp" photos were taken. It should be an easy matter to review the images from the Washington Monument and find the point at which the most people are packed in there. The parade stands being empty looked awful, and it was largely due to people not showing, but also partly due to it getting dark and it having been cool and rainy all day. Do you want to sit in a wet chair once it's dark to watch some marching bands? Me neither. Especially with the prospect of 2-3 hours to get food and get to the hotel afterwards. That should have been planned for. The ceremonial signing of Executive Orders, with all the idiotic talk of pens, could have waited. The tea and luncheons and other bullshit could have been shorter. It was fixable. None of that, however, makes that press conference look any better. Record viewership? Can't be proven, and in the absence of proof, they are NOT going to get the benefit of the doubt.

    That can prevent a lot, but definitely not all. I still believe a significant amount of rape happens within marriage, but once you're there, there's a lot less you can do to get out of the situation easily, especially if there are kids involved. Some of those women will also tell you they are obeying God by keeping their marriage together. So while I agree that it's a definite good start, it would be dangerous to paint it as "a solution to all these problems."

    You'll want to refresh that repeatedly. We're good here, but to the south it's lit up like a Christmas tree. Even a few miles south (at work, etc.) things were nasty. Tornado warnings in effect for Orange, Seminole, Lake, and Volusia Counties. Looks like Marion is done. Basically things are sweeping along the eastern side of Central Florida. There is a nasty cell right near the Orlando area attractions. There are now a couple of tails to this swinging through the area, and a number of reports of damage (unconfirmed levels due to the darkness). Tampa looks like the first tail fell apart before much happened, but the second one is looking very red and compact on the radar.

    Yeah... I have no idea why I didn't want to elaborate earlier. Thank goodness that no one dug back and pulled a few anecdotes out of their rear ends in their hurry to... agree... with me. I'm assuming you're agreeing with me, since my entire point is that if there IS discrimination, the solution is NOT Government. Of course that would mean that you only felt like being a spiteful jackass. Ah, that part of RPFs which believes divorces are only sought or caused by women, that deaths on the job constitute gender bias (but yet that gender also consistently talks about the virtues of the good old days where men worked and women stayed at home), and that sexual assault is usually just a boogeyman made up by women to get out of being ashamed of things. It'll be the last part to die, sadly. The very last.

    Erm, all low-pressure systems do that up 'round these parts :p * * * Wind is insane (sustained @ 25 with higher gusts even away from the bad parts of the system), already some trees down. We expect much less of an impact than GA, AL, MS, and LA, but it's still going to be sporadically dangerous. The main line (from my perspective) will be here within the hour. It's that tail hanging down from the picture he posted. That means it won't be bad for too long (good thing) but it also contains some really nasty wind and rain and likely hail (bad thing). Then there's another part expected to build and hit around midnight. Your timelines may vary.

    In some of those cases, it's easily solved by being cleaner. I see people taking their damned phones into the bathroom all the time (and even talking on them while in there), and purses hang on the little hook in the stall. That stall is not far from the toilet, which turns everything in the bowl into a mist that settles on that door. The desk almost never gets wiped down, even though people eat at it, drink at it, and in at least one case I witnessed change a dirty diaper on it. You don't have to be obsessive about it, but wiping down the desk area, not eating or doing other gross things at your desk, and generally using a little common sense... well I guess I'm asking too much.

    Mostly it's because it's easier to screech for a law (when they're likely to get one) than it is to work to change hearts, minds, and private contracts of any sort. One of the other images you posted contains a great deal of truth. I could not afford to drop everything and go to DC for several days. Even when I lived in the area, the investment of time would be significant to get to a Metro station, park, take the train into town, get out, navigate this mess, etc.. Many of these women supposedly come from pretty far away. How did they get there? Did the celebrities bus some of them in? If so, how sick is that? Instead of donating to the causes they say they champion, they knit a few more hats and sent people on their way to protest? Not a one of them can name specific legislation they are against (especially since he hasn't been part of introducing anything yet). They are upset over things he said before, and they are upset over a bunch of petty stuff that has no relation to politics at all. Let's round it all off to 500k from all over the nation. Maybe if they'd been this passionate and this mobilized up front, their Hillary would have won. I am willing to bet a chunk of them stayed home, butthurt they couldn't vote for Bernie. Another portion stayed home because it was easy to do so. A small portion stayed home because they hated both options. That's fine, but then don't get this pissy over Trump winning; it's ridiculous. You know why stuff like "Christian Mingle" and "Farmers Only" and whatever get so much press and so many hits? Because people are desperate to avoid women and men like in the photos. Because I want someone who's never put on a sweater vest, and who doesn't have to think too long about whether they want to put on a bowler, or perhaps a bowtie, to go out to dinner with friends. Someone who opens doors and pays sincere compliments and is nice to old people, waiters, and dogs. He can be mean to cats, though. Cats are awful. Someone who likes to read and be quiet, but also has a sense of humor that may include a few more vulgar items that are only told under the right circumstances. Someone who's not easily offended at all, but does take it to heart if he offends someone else, taking it as an opportunity to learn something new (even if that something new is that people are way too easily offended). Also, at this point, he has to smoke or drink (or both) and be able to maintain all those character traits even when relaxed, drunk, or high. And he has to love my cooking. You will not find that marching in the streets at these damned protests.

    Are you discussing laws or rights? I'm surprised to see someone mix the two up on here. Of course, that's one of the major problems with this march. There really ARE women's health issues that are a huge, systematic problem, but they have very little to do with legislation. Signs that say "stay out of my uterus" would make more sense if those same women were not screeching for funding for things to go in and around their uterus. If we are referring to laws, it's just going to become a war of anecdotes, and I'm not keen to get into that. I have been through some things where I was quite surprised to find roadblocks I hadn't considered, and that would definitely affect women at a higher rate, but I can also readily predict the arguments that would ensue on this board. Regardless, whichever gender is being treated "more unfairly," the solution is not going to be more legislation, societal backlash, or reparations.

    I don't really agree with that. There are still a number of situations where women are treated unfairly or downright terribly based purely on being women. These situations aren't new, as opposed to the relatively recent oppression of men (particularly via child support, etc.), so there are old injustices with new ones being piled on every day. Where I differ, though, is that these are battles that can be fought by people rather than Government. We don't need more laws, or special protection, or pandering speeches. It really is along the lines of all the other "rights" groups. We should be focusing on human, God-given, non-obtrusive rights for everyone rather than imposing laws on people to make life "fair" for others. The only one to profit from that is the entity making the laws --- and enforcing them.
