And there we have the problem in a nutshell.

You'll give your daughter advice on how to avoid being raped (probably forgetting to warn her that most rapes are perpetrated by someone the victim knows), but it hasn't occurred to you to talk to your son about consent.

Stop trolling ES !!
In that post I was talking about "Safety First" for both.

The advice I gave both my sons on treating women with respect and care was not relevant to THAT particular post.

T.A.

Don't you dare call me a troll just because you cannot understand what I am trying to explain to you.

Surely having to do that shows you haven't raised the son correctly in the first place.

If you think you are the only influence on your son then you are living in a vacuum. A son will hear the daughter being warned that she risks rape by being drunk at a party. The implicit message in this is that a woman who is drunk at a party is asking for it. This is the hidden message that sons get every day. If you do explain to them that a drunk woman cannot consent to sex then you are by definition not raising your son correctly in the first place.

Lets assume you are right and that all men can't help but rape.

All? Your word, not mine.

Then rather than putting the onus on woman to police them selves lets start treating men as the animals you seem to think they are. Men should not be allowed out without a chaperone.

Glad you are calling for that. It will work just as well as Islam where women can't be out alone.

I'm not calling for that Gary, because I don't agree with your premise that men can't help being rapists.

If you want to realize the biology, then study why penis and vagina developed as opposed to the many other methods different animals - yes we are an animal - use. Tell me is rape even possible with some of the other methods? Take that as a big clue to the answer to your question. None of this makes it right, it only addresses why it exists and why it is impossible to 100% prevent.

I think I've already told you that I have concerns about sociobiology, so you may as well stop banging that drum.

....The culture of society or the culture of men?

I am getting a bit peeved at the way this thread is going where even the "men" are sounding like Es in full cry.

I sincerely hope that these males that are going on about the "culture of men" "rape culture", testosterone is to blame for everything etc. etc. are not speaking from personal experience.

For the record, I have never raped a woman, abused a child, used a date rape drug or taken advantage of a woman who was too drunk to give coherent consent, and I resent in the strongest manner being lumped in the same bag as those who have !!!

To me, encouraging my daughter to wear drug detecting nail polish and not to get so drunk she doesn't have a clue what's happening to her is just plain simple common sense. I would give my son exactly the same sort of advice, i.e. Don't get too drunk and stay out of dark alleys.

If a man walks down a dark alley and get mugged, the first thing that would be said to him is WTF were you doing there.

In this less than perfect world the first person with responsibility for safety is the individual and the rule, whether male or female, is don't get into a situation you may not be able to get yourself out of. Simple, pure, common sense that applies to everyone.

T.A.

Why is it easier to invent anti-rape nail polish than find a way to stop rapists?

Ask your God why he invented testosterone and had some brains swim in it.
http://www.webvet.com/main/2009/01/09/duck-mating-sex-lives-ducks

yes yes, and cats often eat their kittens.

What's your point?

Did you read the report. Having a penis causes rape. At least in birds.

I know you have no personal experience in having a brain swimming in testosterone, but I'm sure you are aware of how some chemicals, e.g. LSD, can affect thinking. Are you assuming testosterone has no effect?

You asked a silly question and got a real answer. I know it wasn't what you wanted to hear. You simply must realize that impulse control is never 100%. (Why do they put candy at the checkout?) Doesn't make it right, but it answers your question.


I've never been a fan of sociobiology because it is particularly vulnerable to subjective bias.

Lets assume you are right and that all men can't help but rape. Then rather than putting the onus on woman to police them selves lets start treating men as the animals you seem to think they are. Men should not be allowed out without a chaperone.

maybe proving that he's an MCP?

Well when I see him over in the "evil" thread justifying infanticide (which is extremely common in nature) then I'll believe otherwise.

..
I followed this story and it's hard to explain but I sensed where this woman was coming from, and it ain't good, believe me. Just like I sensed that 15 year old boy either didn't rape his mother or that she was lying about it. ...

No offence, Julie, but that's the attitude that drives lynch mobs. Often what we think we know or feel to be true simply isn't when we examine the evidence without prejudice.

I think this is abetter place to put this news item than in the science thread.

Date rape nail varnish that changes colour when drinks are spiked being developed by US students

A group of university students in the US have come up with a unique way of helping to protect women from sexual assault on nights out - a nail polish that changes colour when it comes into contact with date-rape drugs.

Four undergraduates in the Materials Science & Engineering department at North Carolina State University are developing a nail varnish named Undercover Colors, which reacts to drugs such as Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB.

Stephen Gray, Ankesh Madan, Tasso Von Windheim and Tyler Confrey-Maloney conceived the idea after forming a team on the university’s Engineering Entrepreneurs Program (EEP). A woman wearing the polish can discreetly stir her drink with a finger and if the colour of her nail changes she will know that her drink has been spiked.

Why is it easier to invent anti-rape nail polish than find a way to stop rapists?

Although to be fair, the political wing of Fox News aka The Tea Party are blatantly racist.


Thanks Es99 at least some get what i am on about there is hope yet for you all :)

EDIT Cylde some understand why i say the Tea party is Republican even if they are the ratbags of the Republican party run by Mr Rupert Murdoch the scumbag traitor , criminal

And Marxists, AKA Mass Murderers, may support the Democrats over Republicans. So?

Let's see. Fox aka Tea party blatantly racist. Murdoch "The S...B.. traitor, criminal".

Your hatred is very internal, and very irrational. Please don't involve us in your personal problems.

Note to other poster's: Please don't push the 'Red X'. on Glenn, and other's who agree. They must be allowed to expose the true reason for their vitriolic hatred of those who they disagree. It isn't political, nor a disagreement with someone's point of view.

They are using this forum to vent their own problems. Their, and other's idea's regarding the issue's of the day, must be understood in this context.

It isn't really political, nor ideological. It is something much deeper.

I think you over estimate the numbers rushing to push the red X Clyde. I do find it amusing that you make these speeches about how offensive you find some posts, yet are completely oblivious to how offensive your posts have been on many occasions. (this being one of them)

Luckily the more tolerant left wing posters such as myself don't need to be told not to go around red Xing posts we don't agree with, because left wing people believe in things like your right to express your opinion no matter how unpleasant it is.

Just read an article on the BBC site that said that whites will be just under 50% of the high/grade school population in the US of A. Once the USA goes darker it will only be a matter of time before it gets dark in Canada to. The US won't have jobs for all the people so they will try Canada.

huh?

I'll put only 1 that relates to this thread

To take citizenship away on a whim both the Lib here and in Canada aka tea party

Clyde !

Glenn...

What has that to do with the Tea Party?

Why did you introduce that term in this discussion?

Very silly, unimaginative, and hijack's this discussion. Please stop it.

"Aboriginals" - I take it that you mean the native North Americans, Indians, if so why didn't you just go ahead and say so.


big no no here you can not call the Kori's "Aboriginals" they are either Kori or First peoples and Canada is not the only country that treated the First peoples badly we here did too .

And i'll say it till the cows come home

It's them Bloody Liberals that did it and are doing it again even down here

So Cliff it's first peoples not aborigianal or native north Americans

It's First Peoples


First Peoples and Aboriginal are interchangeable terms.

A Note on Terminology: Inuit, Metis, First Nations, and Aboriginal

Thanks for that, Hev.

Moran? I am not familiar with that word.

Sorry, Should have been moron. Should have reread before posting. Spelling was not my strong subject.

You still get the idea :)


:))) Now that was funny:)

On topic now: I really didn't know racism still had the upperhand over in Canada, shame:( You'd think people would have grown smarter by now... Especially a country like Canada, where people seem to be much more moderated in their actions than in the States.

Canada still has racism. They treat the Aboriginals really badly in particular. I was quite shocked that such a progressive country had treated people so badly.


"Aboriginals" - I take it that you mean the native North Americans, Indians, if so why didn't you just go ahead and say so.

Aboriginals is the standard accepted term here. Although in my experience people prefer to be called by their tribe or region. For example, my Aunt is Coast Salish, but I forget what particular tribe she is from. My husband is Metis and part Cherokee.
I think 'native' has negative undertones for people here. I am starting a course in Aboriginal studies next week and hope to learn more. I will let you know about what I learn if you like.

Are you a parent ? Because the original statement is one of the few things Es and I totally agree on. :D

T.A.

Can children be horrible little monsters? Yes, sure. Does that make them psychopaths (anti social, remorseless, poor impulse control, disinhibited)? Like I said, thats stretching it a bit.

You don't sound like you've spent any time with the average 4 year old. That description fits them perfectly.

And can teens be extremely self centered? Do they have narcissistic traits? Yeah sure, but does that make them actual narcissists? Again if you look up what REAL narcissists are you will find that teens do not even come close to being actual narcissists.

Teens are definitely narcissistic. Any parent or teacher who doesn't take that into account is going to have a very hard time. Angela or Hev might be able to shed more light on the psychological development of people, but as I've said before, the pre-frontal cortex is not fully developed until you are in your twenties.

And with Narcissism also comes the problem of culture. Western culture has inherently more narcissistic traits than other cultures. Its an offshoot of our over admiration of individuality. Still it doesn't make us narcissists.

Obviously children and teens aren't psychopaths or narcissists, but they do display these traits more than fully mature adults. That is why it is so hard to diagnose these disorders until someone is fully matured.

Also, bear in mind that many teachers send their students to this project to learn and participate in science. Although it may be hard to believe sometimes, the boards are supposed to be PG.13.
If you have any further comments about moderation policy here, please read the rules to the left of your posting window or email the moderators.

I know the rules and I accept them.
But what is PG.13 and can you send me a list of the Words not to be used in this forum?
And why dont you make a script which delete all offending Words when stored in the database.
It is so very simple. I can even help you with that if you want to.
Problem solved:)

PG 13 means you do not use anywords that you wouldn't use in front of someone's 13 year old child. Hardly evil, simply common good manners.

Can anybody explain to me what the definition of 'evil' is?
A very bad thing happened to me in this forum recently which I consider is an evil act.
It's about US ways to handle "strong words".
Why are so many US people afraid of words?
Can a word be Evil and have someone died from hearing it?
Dont think so.

Wake up USA!

Its called being politcaly correct. Just another word used to control what we are to think, say, and do. I think its BS myself.
However saying that words can hurt a lot. Ever get mad at your spouse and say something so vile and spitefull, That you wish you had never said it, Or heard a spouse say it? Yes words can kill. They can kill the spirit of a young child, A Mom,Dad, Sister or brother. And words twisted to make a point and or politcal rant can kill millions. Dont think so? Hitler used words to start with. Look what happend. Still dont think words can kill? The US is rife with examples of the printed word stirring up hate which led to killings.

I think that you are wrong, Words can kill from hearing it. Words have killed right from when we started using them.
And you should be glad that the US is wakeing up about words. Maybe that one word we use(WAR) will die out.

Now you misunderstood me. How can a single word hurt people?
It is enough to maybe make a misspelling and the reader gets angry.
Especially in a global world where many nationalities come together with different languages.
For example, there is a toothpaste in Germany called Kukident and I can guarantee you that there is no one who wants that in your mouth in Scandinavia!
And how are rating these Word?
STASI, KGB, NSA, FRA?

You are talking about some incedent that happend on the forum that I have no clue of. And seeing that this is a world community board. I dont know anyone who would take issue with a post from a non english speaker.Translater programs can only do so much. Plus the printed word is emotionless.
What one takes as a slight or insult could be far removed from the actual intent of the sender.
But one single word can hurt another. Whether intended or not.

Also, bear in mind that many teachers send their students to this project to learn and participate in science. Although it may be hard to believe sometimes, the boards are supposed to be PG.13.
