Underage Sex Isn’t Necessarily Bad.
Let’s not get too hung up on the exact figures of underage sex.

Microsoft is publicly supporting a bill to legalise gay marriage in Washington. Why? Because discrimination is bad for business:
As other states recognize marriage equality, Washington’s employers are at a disadvantage if we cannot offer a similar, inclusive environment to our talented employees, our top recruits and their families.

Despite progress made in recent years with domestic partnership rights, same-sex couples in Washington still hold a different status from their neighbors.

The Radical Housewife lives in Minnesota. I’ve (Deb) been reading her blog for a few months now, ever since she left a comment on my blog, and I followed it back to her place. She doesn’t post often, but it’s always good. Here’s a post she has written on domestic violence (nb. could be triggering): Why doesn’t she leave? Only she knows.. I particularly like this point she makes.
If you aren’t sure about how to react to a person’s story about domestic violence, don’t judge. Listen. Answers will reveal themselves, one story at a time.
Annanonymous wonders how she ended up on the mailing list for the John Paul II centre for life.
In lieu of pretty shoes this week….OUCH.
