I continually got told in my 1st job that the company couldn't afford anything over $15/hour.

    Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition announced for the Nintendo Switch!

    Could be MS trying to soften Nintendo for game pass on the switch via xCloud. Would be interesting if we see an announcement along those lines. Hell, that might actually get me to upgrade my wiiU to a switch. ...

To say it's just Democrats is grossly disingenuous and far removed from reality.

They can stop at any time.  That's legally how it works.   If you're in the middle of sex, you are free to leave at any time.   Someone's consent is only given in the moment.  And it can be taken away at any moment.   I'm sorry, but this is just incredibly dissociated...

You're highlighting possible rare exceptional cases as though they were the rule. As I have pointed out, 70 to 90% of prostituted women are sexual abuse survivors. 2)To your second point (the one about the nature of capitalism),...

I don't think registration is good because I don't like the feds keeping track of people's purchases and there are other ways to solve crimes. You don't care if they track what you buy and don't think the methods we have now are sufficient enough. There's really no middle ground here and I doubt were...

But using that ingredient to portray a massacre as being caused by misogyny is almost as bad as blaming violent video games when violent video games were among the interests of a killer.
