A little backgroundHey guys, I'm Pat, a 26-year old newly graduated nurse who is looking to go into pediatric intensive care nursing. In light of a lot of what's being focused on in the news these…Continue
"I wouldn't even say the logo is vaguely snarling. Huskies tend to have an intense look on their face and their eyes seem to stare straight through you. They are a beautiful creature and maybe like most other things that is why feminists are…"
"Apparently, a UConn feminist student has complained to the UConn Administration because, she says, the new UConn Husky logo "promotes rape" and "intimidates women". Beware, ladies and those sensitive to cartoon dogs ... the…"
"Single-payer systems are a whole other world. I don't know how much choice of doctor Canadians have, though I do know it varies across regions.
But your experience shouldn't surprise even those of us in pay-for-service systems. Because…"
"History lesson for fun:
I think women were becoming physicians in the US in the 1850s. Today's education structure for the professions, with specialized graduate schools, is relatively recent. In earlier days, it was all done in more of an…"
"I'd just like to remind everyone that at any university big enough to have a nursing program, there are going to be all sorts of icky ideas running around. There will be angry atheists and white supremacists, old-timers angry that women can…"
"It's funny, I was just about to post about a book I read this week about called "Predators" about sexual predators and how to detect them.
Unfortunately, I have grown up since my childhood innocence and now know that sexual predators…"
"Too late to say anything now to this woman. If you could turn back time I'd suggest that you ask her if she is accusing you (ie slander) of committing a sexual act against a child? She would surely try to dodge this and just go back to her rant…"
"1874 in Britain, if my 2-seconds of searching were correct. That's a pretty long time. I'd guess if you went back that far, many of us would be ineligible also simply for our religion or social class. Anyway, I don't see how a stupid…"

"4chan dangled the "milk is racist" bait. Mic bit into it, because that's what political correctness does to you. Instead if just living your life, it makes you worry about what is ok to say. Or in this case, what is ok to drink. 4chan…"
"Hey there, Drew...
From a women's perspective and one that has been through self-image issues I have to say this is not an easy task. It is however a great one :-)
It is not only being overweight that can cause us to feel ugly. Women and I say…"
Hi all,Basically, my fiancee has some body image issues that I'm not sure how to support her with. I was wondering if any of you have experience of this sort of thing and can give any advice?The main problem is she feels like she's fat/ugly. Her mum and grandma have both told her before that she 'needs to lose weight'. In particular her mum has previously called her 'fat' during a drunken argument.I often tell her she's beautiful etc (at least daily), because I think she is and I want her to…See More
