The True Meaning of Black

No comments:
Black Friday, as many of you know, is the day following Thanksgiving in America on which every major retailer in the country puts on fantastic sales with the hopes of selling more of their wares. Enough, they bet on, to turn a profit and get their books out of the red and into the black. Thus, Black Friday is named, but that's not all there is to the story.

What Women Want

No comments:

This will be brief. There's been lots of talk recently about abortion rights lately, especially as it pertains to rape victims. My contribution to this discussion isn't anything new, but I still need to make my case. Unfortunately, much of the talk (admittedly, only what I've personally been exposed to through various media) has been dominated by men who cannot truly understand the real-life, non-hypothetical experience of carrying a child conceived through forced, unwanted intercourse. I am a man and can at least appreciate that I don't and can't understand.

That being said, I, in my own ignorance, can't see myself keeping that child. Perhaps you would agree with me on this, perhaps not. Either way, man or woman, would you rather make that decision yourself, or would you rather pick someone else - whom you likely do not know personally - who will tell you what you can and cannot do with your body/fetus/embryo/egg?
