The aghast controversy evoked by Dunham’s nudity shows us just how much of this 'real women' talk is lip service, and how very far we have to go before we can socially deal with the fact that different bodies exist. Truth is, we’d all probably be a lot less neurotic about our own bodies if we could get used to seeing and accepting the natural variety in other people’s -- without shame, and giving no #!$%@."

Wait a minute? Somebody needs to pay and be held accountable for the fact she can't keep her legs closed and because her baby daddy is in jail? WTF is this country coming to when people fee so entitled to handouts and charity to fix their problems? Put the kids in subsidized daycare or foster care and get a job! And not one that entails you laying on your back all day. This video disgusts me! It should be used in high school sex education class as a deterrant. I am just aghast at her lack of common sense and decency and feel sorry that she's born all these children who will end up as part of our never-ending reliance on public assistance and entitlement in this state and in this country. This is really a disgusting example of he "American Dream." It's not her fault; give her money and clothing; etc. because she deserves it. Just disgusting!

I don't care what the founding father's intended, beyond the need to know historical context. Who cares what they intended? What does their 250ish year old picture of America have to do with what America needs now. They could not and did not predict how our world would change. Therefore they do not know what is right now. Moreover their word is not infallible. They had some good ideas, but to anyone who thinks their opinion still matters, one simple fact should make anything they ever said be taken with suspicion and healthy debate. They owned slaves, and if they did not own slaves, they allowed a system of government to persist in which one man owned another. Screw cultural and historical circumstance, any person ever, who looked another human being in the eye and saw property rather than soul, is a monster at least in that regard. If they can be so wrong about that, then they can certainly be wrong about public policy.

Question: If God is inside of us, what is the point of worshipping idols? My thoughts: Most people carry photographs of their beloveds in their wallet. When you are away from your loved one, you look at the photo to make up for the lovers absence. Now, the intellect may argue that you are only looking at printed paper, however for the heart the piece of paper is very special. It represents a symbol of love, something that is next best to having their lover in close proximity. In the same way, although God is within us, the mind is by nature turned outward and thus it it very difficult, at-least initially, to experience God subjectively. To bridge this gap, initially we create symbols, like the photograph of the lover above, that represent, to our hearts, the God that is both imminent and transcendent. One such symbol could be a stone idol. Now, when your lover is with you, you will probably not look at his or her photograph, as the photo can never match the joy of the lovers direct presence. In the same way, once you are able to experience God's presence directly, the idol, or any other symbol, is no longer needed.

She didn't understand that. "How can anyone be afraid of love?" "How can they not?" His face was completely aghast. "When you love someone... truly love them, friend or lover, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt—you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it's crippling—like having your heart carved out. It leaves you naked and exposed, wondering what you did to make them want to hurt you so badly when all you did was love them. What is so wrong with you that no one can keep faith with you? That no one can love you? To have it happen once is bad enough... but to have it repeated? Who in their right mind would not be terrified of that?

Underwhelmed, and frankly a bit pissed off. When I read that the font would be released in the coming days, I took another look to see if I was missing something great—I wasn't. I get the design arguments associated with doing this type of project, but it seems to me someone forgot design is supposed to excite and get you to look, and that when you do look, you enjoy the transcendence that a piece of communication has provided you. That is art. That is elegant. This is laughable shite! I hate to see someone as heroic and innovative as Bowie connected with this much lack of design sense and hype being passed off as artistic. Ugh, I hope it sounds different than it looks. Don't judge a record by its cover, apparently. Sorry Barnbrook Design, you've done a disservice to both the design and music communities and no amount of design-speak or artsy drivel can "cover it up." <3 lovemando.

A woman was shaking out a rug on the balcony of her 17th floor condominium when a sudden gust of wind blew the rug - and the woman - over the railing. "God, that was stupid," she thought as she fell. "What a way to die." As she passed the 14th floor, a man standing at his railing caught her in his arms. While she looked at him in disbelieving gratitude, he asked, "Do you suck?" "No!" she shrieked, aghast. So he dropped her. As she passed the 12th floor, another man reached out and caught her. "Do you #!$%?" he asked. "Of course not!" she exclaimed before she could stop herself. He dropped her too. The poor woman prayed to God for one more chance. As luck would have it, she was caught a third time, by a man on the eighth floor. "I suck!, I #!$%!" she screamed in panic. "Slut," he said... and dropped her.

What has caused more long term destruction - the A-bomb, or Government welfare programs created to buy the votes of those who want someone to take care of them? Japan does not have a welfare system. Work for it or do without. And I don’t think there has ever been a better explanation of the importance of incentive than this example These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

A pregnant woman was at the hospital giving birth to her baby. The delivery was almost complete, and at long last, the doctor held up the newborn, cut the umbilical cord, and took a moment to look the baby over. Then without missing a beat, the doctor threw the child against a nearby wall with all of his might. The mother watched in shock as the baby slid to the floor with a sickening thud. The nurses and orderlies stood-by aghast as the doctor proceeded to dribble the newborn around the room like a soccer ball before finally passing the baby through the door into the hall with a mighty kick. Everyone, including the fatigued mother, chased the doctor into the hall just in time to see him scoop up the infant and run down the corridor, stopping just long enough to bodycheck the child into the wall every so often. At the end of the hall, the doctor gave a mighty leap and slam-dunked the baby into a nearby trashcan, giving himself a load roar of approval. Finally the now quite large awe-struck crowd caught up with the doctor. The mother was distraught and burst into tears. “Why? Why in the name of God did you do that to my baby?” she cried. The doctor replied: “I’m just joking with you! It was stillborn.”

I read alot of posts... Alot anti-religous posts and i feel compelled to say this...while i am not the most religious among people,my belief in my religion is strong. It was not the passive, assimilationists that have sustained our people through trying times. It was and will always be those whose faith and adherance to Torah and mitzvos was uncompromising. While people can argue viewpoint all day...those who enjoy some traditions...remember why you have the luxury to still have them and know why they exist. A chanukah a cholent a kol nidre whatever it is...the religious among us keep those things alive. Are there ideas and such that could change? Yes. But the core is beautiful and thats what people should keep in mind. We are the first to support every other religion and cause, but quick to condemn are own....enough already!

The Indian ethos as they call it is heavily loaded against women's independence as an autonomous person. She has to be part of a family unit and seen to be so in order to be respected. Otherwise she is fair game. Hence the constant reference to mother, sister, daughter - adjuncts to possessive patriarchy. And the laxmanrekha is supposed to ensure that. Hence the constant reference to the Ramayana and Mahabharata. It follows in the nature of oppression that those women who think they have hit a sixer in "catching" a good husband and provider, obligingly giving birth to children as per the mandate and keeping a good home, will be smug, traditionalist and supportive of the status quo.

Women's tales from brutal Delhi Delhi is India's 'rape capital' A 23-year-old woman is savagely attacked and raped by a group of men inside a moving bus and her male friend is beaten up senselessly. Battered and bleeding profusely, they are dumped near an expressway in Delhi, where they are found by a passer-by. Another day, another rape, another round of outrage. Yet, more than 630 rapes later this year so far, nothing much will really change. Doctors treating the woman, a paramedic student, who is on life support at a crowded city hospital are aghast. They say this is the "most grievous" case of rape they have handled. "This was much more than rape… They were extensive injuries… It appears that a blunt object had been used repeatedly [by the attackers]," says one. Sunday night's incident in India's "rape capital" was gut-wrenchingly brutal even for a city which has become numb to crimes against women. The mistreatment and abuse of women is a particular problem in Delhi and northern India. A stiflingly patriarchal social mindset, a brazen culture of political power, a general disdain for law, a largely insensitive police force and a rising population of rootless, lawless migrants are only some of the reasons. There must be many others. So if you are a woman - unless you are very rich and privileged - you are more likely to face indignity and humiliation here. In this part of the world where I live and work, people blame rapes on pornography, the influence of foreign cultures and women themselves - for wearing Western dresses and going out with male friends. When another incident happens, the indignant headlines, excited TV talk shows, candlelight vigils, promises by authorities and platitudes by politicians return with familiar gusto. But nothing really changes for Delhi's women. "It is as if there is a silent conspiracy in this city," a woman friend says, "to keep the women scared." They say they are not safe anywhere, at home, on the streets, on a bus, on the new metro system, nowhere really. A friend, who works in the media, tells me about life as a Delhi woman. It is infinitely worse for those who are less privileged than her. When she was living as a paying guest in an upscale south Delhi neighbourhood a few years ago, a drunk male cook barged into her room at night, yanked at her bed sheet and tried to attack her. The man fled after she screamed. "My landlord, a perfectly respectable person on the outside, came up and said I must have been dreaming, that there could not have been an attack. His mother had heard my screams so she believed me. I left the place, and they said they had sacked the cook. When I checked later, I found that the cook had returned and was working," she remembers. After she joined salsa classes a few years later, her friends arrived to pick her up for a competition. They were waiting for a taxi when a policeman walked up and challenged the boys. "You are hanging out with a loose woman," the policeman grunted. "Give me your parents' numbers, we will tell them." When her friends protested, the policeman went up to the landlady and extracted a bribe. "They told her they would file cases against her saying she had rented her place to a suspicious woman without a proper rent agreement." One evening, a few years ago, she was walking home from work when a young man sidled up to her and said something very obscene. She asked him to shut up and walked on. The man ran after her, stopped her in her tracks, and told her bluntly: "I will pour acid on your face next time you say that." Then he vanished. "I came home and began crying. I was scared of going out for the next few days," she says. It doesn't help much if a woman is accompanied by a male friend or spouse. Another woman friend travelling with a male friend in an auto-rickshaw was waylaid by a group of young boys in a posh neighbourhood a few years ago. They blocked the auto-rickshaw at a crossing, pointed a gun at her friend and shouted abuse at him. "They wanted to instigate him, they said he was going out with a prostitute. My friend kept quiet and apologised. They let us go after robbing us," she remembers. When my journalist friend travels alone in an auto-rickshaw on the city's mean streets, she keeps having real and imaginary conversations on the phone with friends and relatives. She doesn't take an auto-rickshaw if she finds the driver overfriendly. If she takes a taxi, she texts the registration number to a friend. She keeps phone numbers for a handful of "reliable" drivers whom she can count on to take her home. Delhi's disdain for its women possibly mirrors the city itself, says a cynical friend and long-time resident. A city largely, he says, made up of a deracinated generation of migrants, rich and poor, living in their own worlds in gated neighbourhoods and grimy slums which all make genuine collective action difficult. An ineffective police and a broken justice system make matters worse.
