Re: School to refer to students as purple penguins

If the school mascot is a penguin or something, not so much. My school mascot is an animal, and all our sports teams are named for that animal, and sometimes the term is used as a kenning for "students at this school." I had not considered that. So, being an educator in the U.S., do you think there...

Re: School to refer to students as purple penguins

Can we get a second source? This seems like satire.

Still, you would do a disservice to children by trying to blind them to superficial differences between people instead of acknowledging said differences and teaching respect and tolerance.

Re: Vatican synod abandons Latin for Italian

I thought some Churches still held the Tridentine Mass, aka still used Latin? Oh yes, some do. My grandfather's position is that mass should be held in latin all the time, everywhere. I mean, he stopped my grandmother's confessor from speaking at her funeral because he supported the "charismatic re...

Re: Gay Marriage: Won't Somebody Think of the Children

A person's desire to have a spouse and kids is worth far, far less than a person's desire to not enter into a sham of a marriage to someone who doesn't love them. So please, leave this bullshit to fuckups like Elliot Rodger. This got stupid really fast. People are still strongly pressured to confor...

Re: Gay Marriage: Won't Somebody Think of the Children

I don't feel any sympathy for the ex-husband. It doesn't matter whether your new squeeze is a man or a woman, telling your spouse you don't love them* and you're leaving them for someone else is a shitty thing to do, especially if the way you choose to do it carries with it the implication that you...

Re: Gay Marriage: Won't Somebody Think of the Children

I actually have some sympathy for the lady. Is she right? no. But it in no way can be easy to hear and find out that your husband of ten years and father of your children is gay and wants to leave you. (Though being said husband is no easier) The other claims, may be true, may be biased but I can s...

Eh, not really. WoW is all about managing your bars and getting timing down. 4e is a tabletop game with grid based movement. Your DM can MAKE it WoW but it's still at heart a tabletop game.
