ferret is fighting the demons of chlorine.
in the past few hours ferret commented on The One Admirable Thing About Bigots.
Well others with huge behavioral problems like those with paranoia are also upfront with their views...
10:16 AM yesterday ferret commented on Anita Sarkeesian Threatened with Rape and Murder for Daring to Keep Critiquing Video Games.
I don't think video games cause violence, but they cause bad social skills, and semi permanent immaturity...

There is nothing wrong with debate, and I liked Sarkeesian's movie critiques, but backlash shouldn't include violence and death threats...
Aug 25 ferret commented on Should Washington State Eliminate Our Statute of Limitations on Rape Charges?.
Yes they should eliminate statue of limitations for rape and sexual assault cases..
Aug 22 ferret commented on The Walrus Accuses Me of Saying Something I've Never Said and Refuses to Run a Correction.
@32 Back in the early 20th Century, the US went through this huge spelling reform, (because all those immigrants wouldn't spell properly, and just fester on our Social Services... Benghazi!!! USA!! USA!! Love it or Leave it!!!)

Anyway, the spelling reform was to make words sound phonetic, like "Center" instead of "Centre", "Jail" instead of "Gaol", "Favorite" instead of "Favourite" etc. etc.

Canada like rest of the Commonwealth didn't need the Americans to tell them what to do, so they continue with spelling many English words and French loan words as they always do...
Aug 22 ferret commented on No, Henry Rollins, Fuck You and Your Stupid Ideas About Suicide.
@84 No one is defending suicide, but how difficult is to treat depression, which is a chronic illness. What people are taking offense is that stigmatization of suicide victims as weak and other moral judgements against them, when they have a serious disease that is difficult to treat.

Aug 22 ferret commented on The Walrus Accuses Me of Saying Something I've Never Said and Refuses to Run a Correction.
I think why the Walrus is keeping the line, is that it is a quote from "Leah", who stated the defamatory line. not from the reporter as a matter of fact. I think the Walrus should do more, then put a blurb that Dan Savage took "offence" (heh!)

Mr. Toub should had put an addendum that this is not what Dan Savage has stated for years about "GGG"(I am guessing I need to pay a license for using that trademark) Mr. Toub or his editor should had fine tune the paragraph to state this isn't exactly what Dan has stated in the past...

The Walrus should correct this.. It is just sloppy writing on the writer/reporter's part. It is also important for a correction, as a reprimand to the writer...
Aug 22 ferret commented on The Morning News: Feds Consider Moving Grizzly Bears into Washington; Seattle Judge Busted.
Grizzly Bears are already in Washington State, they are in the Pasayten Wilderness area. Putting them on Westside of the Cascade Crest is something new, if they haven't migrated there yet from the eastside or to westside of North Cascade National Park
Aug 21 ferret commented on No, Henry Rollins, Fuck You and Your Stupid Ideas About Suicide.
@43 ?!?!?

Just read Henry Rollins's article... He gives two examples of friends or roommates committing suicide.

"

@17 "The act of suicide is incredibly brave, and yes, it leaves behind your loved ones to grieve and pick up the pieces"

No, suicide isn't brave, and the victims don't pick up the pieces. Death of loved ones does not bring out the best of people. Loved ones always have the pain from someone who killed themselves. They just learn to deal and try to cope with that pain.

Suicide isn't a choice, suicidal ideation is part of a mental illness. I see it more as actions and disjointed thought process than choice...
