How I can be so sure there is no god? Well I am 95% sure and simply round it up! I'm antitheist because religion is judgmental, persecutory and each brand feel they have a monopoly on truth.

Once upon a time I worked as a teacher but now work in mental health. I find fulfillment in my work, my family and friends and hobbies. I'm a strong advocate for social justice and have no time for racists or sexists. I'm a feminist and believe feminism has been advantageous for both men and women but I still don't feel fairly represented in government. Politically I favour democratic socialism.

Widowed many years ago, I raised my four wonderful sons.

How many of you ladies can receive orgasm from oral? If it's mind blowing of course.
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 18, 2018:
The biggest turn off for women is the thought that a man doesn't really want to be there. If you're going to do.......at least pretend you're enjoying yourself.
Would you rather have friends or fans?
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 18, 2018:
Lying on my death bed I doubt I'd be giving a thought to fans. It's true friends and family that enrich life.
What do you think of circumcision?
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 18, 2018:
Only 4 % of male Australian babies are circumcised. how does this stat compare with the USA? We might be having a poll about something that is no longer much of an issue.

MsDemeanour comments on Jul 18, 2018:
Interesting. I just thought Trump colluded to sabotage Clinton's campaign. Putin is no fool. Ex KGB, not a man to be trifled with. I think you may have something there.

What is the worst thing for a child to see in an R rated movie?
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 16, 2018:
Who the hell would think watching a sex scene would be more damaging than violence? It wasn't that long ago we all shared a one room shack with our parents and siblings. Unless you're talking extreme pornography? That wouldn't be healthy for young developing minds. Most of us heard our parents having sex when we were kids. At the time it might've made us feel sick but I don't think there were lasting effects.

MsDemeanour comments on Jul 16, 2018:
hilarious. Those Christians can sure teach us a thing or two about 'loving your enemies' and 'turning the other cheek'. They certainly make us aware of how christians could conduct the inquisition or lead the crusades. These are the same ppl who would have us believe muslims are evil.
I really don't know what to say.

I got caught speeding once (actually many many times but I'm talking one occassion) anyway the cop let me off! I couldn't believe it. I've met some rude arseholes but this was the only time one let me off. He was a country cop. I still scratch my head over it.

MsDemeanour comments on Jul 15, 2018:
I guess it has to do with being a humanitarian. I have little time for these fools or the tourists facing the death penalty in Indonesia for possessing a bit of pot. I have little time for the idiot who goes bush walking by himself and gets lost and thousands and thousands are spent on searching for him. But the consequences are inappropriate for the crime. And if we can't find compassion in our hearts for these fools, then we are no better than narrow minded christians. It comes down to your own personal values. For me, I want to do the right thing by people, not to reserve a place in heaven but because it is the moral thing to do.
So really we're just a bunch of thought provokers.

I love using Chia
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 14, 2018:
I got some chia to add to my cereal. It was ground up more than in the pic. In fact it tasted like dust on my cornflakes. Had to toss it. If I bought it again tho, I'd ad it to my protein balls. Been making them lately. Healthy and filling. No baking.

Free will?
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 14, 2018:
This is where critical thinking comes in. It is important to continue to question our long held beliefs and as you say it isn't easy to detour from those deeply etched neural pathways. Take racism as an example. There are evolutionary reasons for racism. Back in the day we had to make snap decisions whether someone was friend (from our clan) or a possible threat (not of our clan), or we could be dead. We made that judgement based on what we saw. We still sum up people in under 5 seconds. This is innate. Add to that environmental influence of racist parents and we have established racist views without ever needing to think about it. BUT unless we are morons, we can challenge that thinking, 'is there any valid basis for my racist thought?' NO? Then I adopt new non-racist values. Being religious is actually closing your mind to critical thinking. You are taught to question nothing, just accept because 'the bible tells me so'. Not much synaptic transmission happening here; might as well be a jellyfish. We do have free will but it's up to us whether we will exercise it.

If you good live anywhere on the planet, where would it be and what attracts you about it?
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 14, 2018:
hmm difficult. All those Scandinavian countries rank highest in Forbes 'world's happiest country'. https://www.forbes.com/sites/duncanmadden/2018/03/27/ranked-the-10-happiest-countries-in-the-world-in-2018/#6dfd22f973e9 And I love that they are secular on the whole. But I don't speak the languages. I'd live in New Zealand, because the people are generous, funny and creative, and the country is beautiful and secular and progressive; but I don't like the cold. Ultimately for me it's about the people. And my people, friends and family are right here where I am , so I won't move. The weather is warm, even now in Winter. There is space here, space to get away, to think, to breath. So despite Australia being overrepresented by wankers, capitalists and racists, I will stay here because this is where my heart is.

‘No Jab, No Pay’. In Australia, no excuse accepted for unvaccinated kids - The Globe and Mail
MsDemeanour comments on Jul 14, 2018:
Mullumbimby, in the Byron Bay shire, home of the anti-vaxers, had an epidemic of whooping cough. Only one in two were vaccinated. Babies too young to be vaccinated died as a result of coming into contact with others who should've had their vaccination. Those so ready to swallow the homeopathy fallacy are just as gullible as the religious. Let's be rational and stick to science based evidence.

Prison should be about rehabilitation. It should also be for only violent criminals. Others, the poor who can't pay fines, the mentally unwell, white collar crime, thieves, they should all be working off their crimes doing voluntary work. The should have a curfew and be deprived of going to pubs and such. But in this way, they could pay for their crimes without become the bitter and hardened crims that often are released from jail.
