• Is teaching religion to children equivalent to child abuse?

    Being that the world's great religions are simply tiny cults gone viral, isn't teaching falsehoods to children's fragile, curious minds equivalent to child abuse?

  • Should looking at women be considered rape?

    As we all know, men stare at us. I think we should classify this as rape, then we could say that 3/4 of men rape rather than 1 in 4.

  • My younger stepbrother is acting weird around me. I think its just curiosity but I dont know how to talk to him about it?

    I'm 16 and he's only 11 we've lived together for about 6 years. He's always treated me like a sister since he was too small to understand the idea of step-siblings.

    I'm 16 and he's only 11 we've lived together for about 6 years. He's always treated me like a sister since he was too small to understand the idea of step-siblings. Well recently I have caught him looking through my underwear and found a pair in his room that he took out of the hamper. I noticed him trying to peek into my room or the bathroom when I'm changing. I even had to stop going braless around my house because he would stare at me. I dont want to talk to my dad or his mom about it because I think it would be awkward for everyone. But then I dont know what to say to him myself. I get that hes at that age where puberty and curiosity are taking over his mind but apart from me telling him to stop doing it I havent said anything else. Everytime our conversation is just "What are you doing?" "Nothing" "Well dont do it again" I think maybe too at this age it sort of clicked in his mind that we aren't blood related and thats why he's starting to act this way. Like I said I'm just super confused and dont know where else to turn to get advice.

    Best answer: Hi! I am 15 year old girl & before you dismiss me thinking I have no idea what it is like being a parent, which is true, hear me out as someone basically the same age as your daughter going thorugh some of the same situations. I have come to realize that social life as a teen can be kind of tough, people always judging you for the most meaningless things, gossip, & honestly you just want to fit in. So when you find a friend out of everyone that starts to actually like you for,well, you it makes you want to cling to person knowing if you let go you may never find anyone like them again, even if you will later on. I am asexual, like your daughter, & I too have friends, not best friends, but friends with girls who are lesbian. I can promise that your daughter has voiced her concerns with the girl if they are that close & I know lesbian girls are very understanding & respectful when it come to others sexual preferences. Also try not to take the 'I love you' too seriously, I say that to all my close girl friends, its more of a sisterly love if that makes sense, cuddling too, all sister sister. I completely understand why it would worry you but just try your best to trust your daughter to make all the right choices based off what YOU have taught her. & also remember how great it felt when you were a teen to find someone who you felt cared about you in a big school where everyone is just trying to find their place. Hope that helps & good luck with everything!

    Since an atheist has no objective standard for morality their moral code is subjective. They have three options: They can develop a moral standard out of their own opinions. They can adopt the moral standards of society. They can use a combination of his own opinions and the morals of society. If they take the first option they are based on his/her opinions, so why should we take his/her moral opinions seriously? And what right does he/she have to say that anyone else's moral position is right or wrong? If they take the second option then what makes one society right and another wrong? Haven't societies been wrong before? Think of Nazi Germany or America in the 1800's regarding slavery. Furthermore, who's to say that in the future a new moral majority might condemn atheism as an ethical danger to society? Finally, if the atheist uses his/her own opinions in combination with those of society, then he is subjectively deciding what he/she thinks is right and wrong in the society around him/her. He/She is judging society's morals and deciding which ones are right and wrong, which ultimately brings us back to the first problem where he/she is deriving morality from his/her own opinions. Although I am prepared for the side-stepping "BUT UR GOD IS IMMORAL FOR THIS REASON" I think this is a legitimate problem for atheists and would appreciate an intelligent answer if you can provide one.
