  1. When I've d in the schools this past year I flubbed up twice and called a boy a she and a girl a he. They dressed and wore their hair like the opposite gender of their birth, both times they were very forgiving. This was in elementary school. I felt so bad, times are a changin.
  2. Well, I'm taken aback by what I heard yesterday. My husband works with the grandson of a guy whom I babysat for, he and his deceased now wife, when a teenager. The grandson told my husband at work that on Sunday they visited him and he was sitting in his easy chair and feeling a little too great, he had taken a gummy and has his medical marijuana card and he said he should have probably only taken a half, talk about surreal! And works in the temple. There is a dispensary right in his little home town, where I grew up for part of my life. It's a strange, strange world we live in. In Utah of all places, there is plenty of permission looks like. Still illegal in Idaho though. But I'm thankful if it helps people.
  3. And speaking of the topic......Absent an absolute authority, who is to say what anything is
  4. Canadian's seem to have a lot of common sense. No baloney stuff.
  5. I was a bit confused about his daughter, is she alive or is she impersonating his daughter, which seems unlikely or somehow he made it look like his daughter passed away, and how is she working with the guy that is after him? Makes me think I better watch again, lol.
  6. I wish I could share this on my FB, such an epic compilation. Hadn't thought of the idea of the spirit child maybe thinking of the mother first. If I misunderstood the analogy please correct me. And sad that those states that don't provide better situations for women to either take care of a baby, or help her with birth control, are the strictest, and says a lot of how they feel about females/children.
  7. I think it's very possible for a baby to be born with confusing genders such as those that get assigned a sex. That tells me that someone can most definitely feel they are the wrong sex in their bodies and I will give them the choice because I'd hate to be born in a body I didn't identify with. Same with those that are gay and told they have to love a gender that their soul isn't attracted to or it feels abnormal. What if you were told to love a male sexually and that is the the way it was, how would you feel? Speaking as if you're not gay right now. Or if you're a female, told that you must love another female sexually. See how that feels? Well, that's how gays or trans feel when told they must do something that doesn't jive with their soul or body makeup.
  8. Thought this should be interesting. And some facts we may not have known.
  9. When we meet in person so I can make sure these names apply. No, I'll call you anything you want.
  10. I'm a pro choice and pro life person, I believe the planned parenthood facilities should be supported in order to avoid pregnancy. There's so many lines that can be crossed here, that we need to do better in all areas, couples that have sex should take every precaution in what they are about to do and the outcome of it, needless to say. I guess this overturning Roe vs Wade could have a good outcome if it makes everyone stop and think. And maybe think tanks out there will supply the better way.
  11. We need the very wealthy to pay taxes like everyone else.
  12. "The Good Dinosaur" you can watch over and over and see new things. Beautiful story line, funny and sad parts, creative and intelligent. Tending my granddaughter and she likes Arlo the dinosaur, and adults would enjoy it too.
  13. I've taught many kindergarten classes, and that wasn't in the curriculum. Teachers have to keep up with so much of it, it's hard to believe they'd have time to teach them to be gay. And I've yet to see the facts from these people that listen to Fox news.
  14. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_Utah#:~:text=Abortion in Utah is currently,abortion a second-degree felony. Free birth control correlates to teenage girls having a fewer pregnancies and fewer abortions, according to a 2014 New England Journal of Medicine study. At the same time, a 2011 study by Center for Reproductive Rights and Ibis Reproductive Health also found that states with more abortion restrictions have higher rates of maternal death, higher rates of uninsured pregnant women, higher rates of infant and child deaths, higher rates of teen drug and alcohol abuse, and lower rates of cancer screening.[16] According to a 2017 report from the Center for Reproductive Rights and Ibis Reproductive Health, states that tried to pass additional constraints on a women's ability to access legal abortions had fewer policies supporting women's health, maternal health and children's health. These states also tended to resist expanding Medicaid, family leave, medical leave, and sex education in public schools.[17] According to Megan Donovan, a senior policy manager at the Guttmacher Institute, states have legislation seeking to protect a woman's right to access abortion services have the lowest rates of infant mortality in the United States.[17] Poor women in the United States had problems paying for menstrual pads and tampons in 2018 and 2019. Almost two-thirds of American women could not pay for them. These were not available through the federal Women, Infants, and Children Program (WIC).[18] Lack of menstrual supplies has an economic impact on poor women. A study in St. Louis found that 36% had to miss days of work because they lacked adequate menstrual hygiene supplies during their period. This was on top of the fact that many had other menstrual issues including bleeding, cramps and other menstrual induced health issues.[18] This state was one of a majority that taxed essential hygiene products like tampons and menstrual pads as of November 2018.[19][20][21][22]
  15. I'm grateful the church at least allows for the following, better than some states. The Church allows for possible exceptions for its members when: Pregnancy results from rape or incest, or A competent physician determines that the life or health of the mother is in serious jeopardy, or A competent physician determines that the fetus has severe defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth.
  16. Finished the series, hmm, looks like Sally's LDS parents are no longer all in, like I thought. I'm torn in how I see all this come to play. I hope Sally and Lena stick it out, I know Sally was having a bit of cold feet and anxiety. But the whole of that is from worrying that they won't make it stick forever, maybe she's worrying about her family, children to be specific, and what they'd go through if it didn't last.
  17. Yep, why is the woman to blame and the men not so much, sucks!
  18. You've never experienced an abortion I take it. I haven't either, but read what someone getting one goes through before saying what you did. Much easier ways to use birth control. Also, looks like that's even being considered, so if no contraceptives then it stands to reason there would be more unwanted pregnancies, how asinine is that?!? Two links below, one is on what women go through, let alone the horrible guilt. And second is the law that is being considered. https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/abortion/in-clinic-abortion-procedures/what-happens-during-an-in-clinic-abortion https://www.statnews.com/2022/06/24/supreme-court-decision-suggests-the-legal-right-to-contraception-is-also-under-threat/
  19. c/p'd below of the part I was responding to especially the bold part and indicating Carbon Dioxide isn't the CES Directer and that the CES Director might take it a little more seriously, I've yet to read your links though so maybe you had more to say. "The whole back story of that letter as I understand it is a joke. Why would anyone really think that anyone would respond to such a thing. If a friend of mine sent me a list of a 100 or 200 things they had a problems with the Church, I would toss it in the garbage. I don't have time for that. I would say to them give me 5 or maybe 10 things. Serious people don't write up things like that and expect any kind of response."
  20. Well, you're not a CES director.
  21. Sick! I hope she doesn't really mean this. Is she that dumb?!?
  22. So very true, nailed it! Ewww, but that's socialism. 🙄 We must not ever do that. 😠 It's about the rich getting richer and capitalism, no government programs. Which is hilarious because capitalism wouldn't happen without the programs to help the citizens get a leg up. And poo poo'ing some programs by taking them away could prevent healthy families, sadly.
