I can't say I blame him. He probably has close friends and family members who he told previously he was gay, but the North Dakota Republican Party have made perfectly clear they're not willing to accept LGBTQA people in their state. I imagine had it not been for fear of being rejected by the party or its voters because of his sexual orientation, he would have been willing to come out to the public as well as vote for the bill ending discrimination against LGBTQA.

One other thing, whoever threatened this man into voting against his own rights should be thrown out of office, but that state is so backwards in terms of who has the political power that the wrong person will end up facing backlash.
I'm sorry, did I miss the memo. When did LGBT add on two letters? This sounds pretty insensitive and off-topic. Don't get me wrong, I support the LGBT-Q-A? Community, but what do these new things stand for.

Queer/Questioning and either Asexual or Allies, not sure.

What does it mean to be "assigned male at birth"? You are either born male or you are not, no?
It means you were assigned based on your external genitalia rather than the gender you "really" are inside.

I put really in the scare quotes because if gender is a social construct rather a bit of physical anatomy, then no one is "really" a particular gender.

It's neither. If gender were determined by sex, trans people wouldn't exist by definition. If gender were a social construct,  every tomboy would just be a boy (if, of course, I am understanding those social-construct people).

We can compromise public integrity in the folks who interpret the laws but not the ones who make them? OK, Chief...

If this hasn't been mentioned yet, the current name du jour is the Baltimore Uprising.

However, there is still absolutely no excuse for violence and looting.

Not even during the American Revolution?

Fairbanks will die in 1918 and make Hiram Johnson president, and he was no interventionist himself.

Three woman presidents? My God!

Debs reelected by a smaller popular vote? Shame on Atlas.

He's still the first president to be elected to two terms since James B. Weaver, though, and the first president to be reelected period since Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

And the first to serve two full terms since John Parker Hale.

Have a B- in chemistry for this quarter, practically giving me a nervous breakdown, but on the flip side the last quarter is basically just an easy final project.

If we vote for Champ, we might be able to take over Canada!
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP congressman: Obamacare will make America like North Korea on: April 18, 2015, 09:28:28 pm
And "capitalist" South Korea has a universal health insurance program far more comprehensive than what the ACA does.

David Brat is a moron. It's troubling to think this man was awarded a PhD and a university faculty position.
Im so glad you acknowledge PhDs are only rewarded to the financially viable on whose head the square hat fits.  The graduation ceremony is capped offby an illustration that the circle (your head) has been squared.

That's why all schools are so nervous about the kids throwing the hat off afterwards (they outlaw it or threaten fines for not finding your square again).  My school said throw the hat off but you must turn in a hat.  So be sure to scramble for one against your fellow graduates lest you be fined!

Grad school:  Finishing school for squares.

I'm having a pretty bad night. I can't cry but I really want to.

I'm sorry to hear that. If you ever need to talk, you can talk to me.

Is it a hard j or a soft j, though? I pronounce it softly, like a zh.
