Here we are 8 years later, I'm a single Mom with little to no support from Dad and barely scraping by as a parent. And I'm still vilified for literally everything on a regular basis. Should have done what I thought was best in the first place. Conceding to his demands only made things worse.

While there are very good points made here. I think it is very important to keep in mind that institutionalized racism and sexism are in fact widespread and deeply ingrained in a lot of our "power" structures. The disproportionate amount of white men in positions of power alone is an indicator of this. Furthermore as movements like #metoo continue to expose those who do and have abused their positions I think we'll see more and more come to light. A rock has been turned over here and it's no surprise to see all the worms and roaches squirming now that they're being exposed and feel vulnerable.

@FrayedBear I see we've devolved to name Calling already and I'm not even provocatively dressed.
People that don't believe in God... why do some of them believe in ghosts or supernatural?
ScottAHurst comments on Feb 6, 2018:
Until people embrace critical thinking and scientific method as their "way of knowing" their heads are full of random bullshit. Lots of unskeptical atheists believe a whole host of ridiculous notions from anti vax to ancient aliens.
OpposingOpposum replies on Feb 15, 2018:
@ScottAHurst I absolutely agree that critical thinking should be taught earlier and more aggressively in schools. Unfortunately public education seems geared towards grinding out obedient workers and not much more.

@ScottAHurst the point is that they don't trust the people publishing the studies or the doctors administering the vaccines. If you want people to believe you,you have to be ethical and honest.

OpposingOpposum replies on Feb 15, 2018:
Because men being attracted to women doesn't equal men respecting women. Guys will look at a pretty woman in a bikini then turn around and call her a whore etc. Furthermore women's opinions get written off out of hand, particularly if they're *sexy*. It seems it's assumed they can't be smart/educated etc.

Well, obviously Sweetheart Sean is the choice here!

The only question I have is what part, were you playing in this horror movie? I cannot imagine how you work a plot around that scenario? Or was it one of those 'plotless' movies? Did the movie end, and will there be a sequel? Just asking?

Lysistrata comments on Feb 14, 2018:
Some people really WANT monogamy. If that's what you want, but you agree to a polyamorous relationship so you won't have to break up when they stray, you've only condemned yourself to an endless cycle of pain. I don't want to be polyamorous with anyone. I'd rather be alone than watch the person...

I try to be open minded but Polygamy is not something I can be open minded too. I just don't understand it.

However, cats in particular think it's hilarious to freak you out by suddenly jumping up, staring into the darkest corner of the room and hissing as though there's something there you can't see - so you can end up thinking there really *are* ghosts.

Do you think abortions should be illegal?
kiramea comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Anyone who believes that giving one up for adoption is easier is beyond delusional. I've given two up for adoption (found out the hard way that the pill does not work for me) because I don't believe in abortion. Was the hardest thing I've ever done.
OpposingOpposum replies on Feb 10, 2018:
