commented on Mayor Murray Interrupted by Youth Jail Protesters During Irish Week Kickoff Speech
If you don't want to house kids for corrections, you're going to just get anyone charged with anything serious tried as an adult... but it won't even work because the laws of the state dictate. The new facility is designed to do all the things these people say they want for these youths, but it also fulfills our legal responsibility (and moral) of being able to hold youths out of society for a time if necessary.
commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Straight Uncle Offers Trans Nephew A Summer in the City (But Mom Says No)
People here are way too hung up on this notion of the inviolable rights of parents, which is bullshit. There are lots of thing a parents do which are bad for their kids which fall short of abuse, that doesn't mean outsiders shouldn't meddle, especially close family.
Also, the kid is 16, he should be getting a lot of say in his summers, and should be allowed at the negotiating table with his mom and uncle.
Saying he belongs to his mom for two more years is fucking bullshit.

@1: it's succeeding wonderfully.
@3: it's like they don't understand how insurance works, and they want all the seniors to sign up, and not the youth. I get it, it's more expensive for seniors, but the problem has always been not having young people sign up because it's a mediocre deal for them.

@8: LOL. The country you fought for in Vietnam died when Saigon fell. The Viet Cong won. As far as your stupid birth control comment, pay for birth control or pay for the baby. You probably don't bring or use condoms when you sleep with someone either, eh?
