Feb 6, 2013 pretty basic stuff commented on SL Letter of the Day: Rocky Mountain Rainbows.
Rocky Mountain Rainbow: the smear of menstrual blood (and often cum) left on a man's balls after period sex. "Jane gave Tom a Rocky Mountain Rainbow, but by the time he'd finished going down on her, she'd left a double rainbow all the way across this guy... so intense!"
Feb 22, 2012 pretty basic stuff commented on Walmart Tries to Pay Workers in Walmart Vouchers.
like @32, my concern is the level of entanglement between the corporate employer and employees. It's difficult enough standing up for oneself when it means risking your job/safety/comfort, especially if you have family depending on you. It takes a frequently impossible-to-sustain level of courage to do so when that also means you lose any $ or benefits you've already earned but haven't cashed in on. So from Walmart's perspective, these vouchers don't just mean they're controlling all of their employees discretionary income, it means they're ensuring that A) nobody's going to unionize, B) nobody's going to protest, and C) their employees are COMPLETELY dependent on their jobs, which means that systematic abuses can occur and even become de rigeur, and they won't have to deal with lawsuits or complaints.
And if it weren't for the bravery of this anonymous employee, that would have been true.
I know I've struggled more than once with leaving abusive employment situations because it meant putting myself at even more risk.
The violation of human dignity comes when a person is financially, emotionally, or physically forced or pressured into returning to or participating in a degrading situation because they believe themselves to have no options or recourse. THAT is why this scenario was judged unethical. And when a power dynamic is judged unconscionable by the Mexican legal system, that alone speaks more powerfully than I can.

Wow, it's no wonder so many conservative people are afraid of letting us have a political say - we can't even have a basic discussion about terminology without ganging up on each other.
Seriously, just because you CAN post anonymous snarky witticisms doesn't mean you should. It just makes us look like the same kind of immature bullies that target gay people for being self-centered enough to whine to the other 90% of the world about how unfair it is they can't adopt or get married or whatever bullshit they think they deserve now.
...So yeah, sometimes it's hard to comment respectfully about ideas you don't believe, especially when you're in the majority. But it'd be a hell of a lot more welcoming around here if people tried writing "I don't have a problem with the semantics," instead of ganging up on someone who feels strongly about an issue that doesn't bother the rest of us.
