Great little story, wonder how many other people out there made this transition because of the birth of their children...?
Super interesting! :)
Best ending:From the page: Jim Fallon says he had a terrific childhood; he was doted on by his parents and had loving relationships with his brothers and sisters and entire extended family. Significantly, he says this journey through his brain has changed the way he thinks about nature and nurture. He once believed that genes and brain function could determine everything about us. But now he thinks his childhood may have made all the difference.
"We'll never know, but the way these patterns are looking in general population, had I been abused, we might not be sitting here today," he says.
As for the psychopaths he studies, Fallon feels some compassion for these people who, he says, got "a bad roll of the dice."
"It's an unlucky day when all of these three things come together in a bad way, and I think one has to empathize with what happened to them," he says.
Great perspectives on technology and relationships- upsides & downsides
don't like those laws, but like being informed about it
This is the most important part of the entire article....From the page: Indeed, their determination to parent to the best of their ability or not at all is the reason why restrictive laws and attitudes about abortion are so dangerous. They don't stop women having abortions; they simply make it more difficult. They risk turning relatively simple early-term abortions into more complicated later-term procedures. And if we ever go back to the bad old days when all abortions were illegal, we simply increase the risk of killing the mother and the child.
From the page: "mold my spouse's mind ever so gently" LOL
Really great article, exemplifies many of my own feminist perspectives on the reality of relationships today.
From the page: "Women are not quite ready to admit that we are ready to be domesticated again. But the Girls Gone Wild model doesn't appeal much either. Caught between the false liberation of the last decade and the fervent conservatism of the new one, it makes some sense that Hephzibah Anderson called the whole thing off for a year. It's much easier than dealing with the shame cycle."
From the page: So what has Newkirk to say for herself, and for PETA, then?
As for the sexy women in our ads, the silly costumes, the street tableaux and the tofu sandwich give-aways, in a world where people want to smile, can't resist looking at an attractive image and are up for a free meal, if such harmless antics will allow one individual to reconsider their own role in exploiting animals, how can it be faulted?
Sooo, ah they are exploiting people with developmental disabilities? I guess they better get a pay check that corresponds! - From the page: The companies claim those who are autistic have a talent for spotting imperfections. Often, they do well with predictable, monotonous work. People with autism often display an intense attention to detail, a single-minded focus and a willingness to work on something repetitively until it's perfect.
so cute & cool.
Interesting.. wonder why this is published in esquire?
From the page: .. that in our multicultural societies, we must come to terms with people who are different from ourselves and whose presence in our lives may challenge us at a profound level. Moreover, as a species, we are bound tightly to one another -- electronically, financially and politically. Unless we manage together to create a just and equitable global society, in which we treat all nations with respect and consideration, we are unlikely to have a viable world to pass on to the next generation.
The Gospels paint a picture that is very different from the cozy stable scene on the Christmas cards. They speak of deprivation and displacement. The Messiah himself is an outsider. There is no room in the inn, so Mary has to give birth in the 1st-century equivalent of an urban alleyway. As victims of Herod's tyranny, the Holy Family become refugees; other innocents are slaughtered. If we attend carefully to these parts of the story, the specter of contemporary suffering -- within our own society and worldwide -- will haunt our festivities. And we are left with the disturbing suggestion that the future, for good or ill, may lie with those who are currently excluded.
"Domestic violence as glorified by Twilight: New Moon movie and book"
What is with this craze anyway?? I just dont get it.
DGTGDGCG- I second TurtleHeart, the character is a native american. The book makes it an issue... That was the point of the article.
Sooo most women are lying manipulative princesses who dont want to have sex but have no problem sitting around pulling money out of their ex/husband/whatever's nose?? oh and I forgot...needy and abusive too.Seriously...where does this writer live? Maybe I'm the one living in a hole but this is not even close to the overall norm....
UUH, how did I even get this?? I'm married, dont have dating tips in my stumble subjects and there are no other categories this site is listed under.....weird.
yikes. Maybe folks should read the next verse before they decided to take the bible and make it a gimmick...
"Yet equally, it is men who, within a patriarchy, and with their sexuality and aggression thereby socialised, who make political society. It is they who create great art, symphonies, aeroplanes and highways."
