gay dude takes on feminists...

I can't find it on youtube, yet, if so I'll post it because the interviewer's response is so classic, they had no idea how to respond to the last comments by the columnist. it was Awesome. the girl for counterpoint was somewhat confusing, but this guy was well-spoken. Although there's some questioning on the validity of bringing up his sexuality in the argument.... here is a link to the Early SHow interview with the columnist Alex Knepper from American University. He wrote a piece asking about adult women taking responsibility for getting drunk and going to a guy's room and how cases of date-rape can sometimes be a woman regretting what happened and claiming date-rape. I completely agree the issue must NOT be taken lightly as there are too many date rapes that often go unreported for the very reason of not being believed, however, I respect Knepper's courage in making a point and beginning dialogue on the issue. However the university pulled the papers and apologized for the "bad editing job"... From what he stated on the Early Show I was intrigude by the argument also check out his blog entry here, "Sex, Lies, and Media Bias," or even email him from there....

ricky martin comes out...

I guess I've been under a rock all week.... there's a NY Times article here and then I guess I saw something about it on the Early show today. but wow, I guess I thought they were just rumors, or I guess I never cared much since I never thought he was all that. ha... was this news to anyone else?
Ed. sorry i fixed the link to NYT... i had it linked wrong...

CBS this morning don't ask or tell...

good story reported this morning on the changes of don't ask don't tell this last week.
I like that they mentioned what other countries are doing and even had a picture of an Israeli soldier who says his bf visits twice a week... check out the story here at CBS Sunday morning..
The part about the two lesbians who were serving wonderfully until reported was sad, especially since one of them was reported as revenge for turning in someone for drug use etc... UGH.
Regardless how long it takes to change, the truth is change will come, for one thing the new generation of soldiers and officers are going to care less. and the only officers complaining will be the ones our grandparents' age who are from a completely different way of living, including military life.
btw, is anyone watching amazing race, I'm just flipping by it now and then, but I got to say what is up with the complaining and bitchiness from the two lesbians competing. ughhhh. I'm rooting for the two Oklahoman cowboys of course. ha I'm really looking forward to next month. I've been told that the schools at the job fair I went to a few weeks ago start making calls mid April. There is also another job fair in April that I look forward, especially since one of the middle schools is a half mile from my house... I can't wait to be full time employed again, I'm not traveling much at all this year, and am sort of just living on memories at this point, and then some daydreaming about plan for travel in the future... I might teach a class this summer and work at the water theme fun park again. although I'm living pretty simply and frugally right now, my stocks have been going up almost reaching the amount I made while teaching overseas..I had been considering paying off my mortgage, but considering what I pay in interest on the mortgage in one year, compared to what the stock is earning (so far, it could fall back down to nothing any day, I realize all you non-optimists like myself...:)...) it's worth it to keep the funds in stock at this point.
