Miscellany

I lost track of who orig­i­nal­ly linked to what, so I can’t cred­it them prop­er­ly. But thank you to who­ev­er they all were, any­way! Filed under “anoth­er rea­son I’m proud to be a home­school­er”: Cal­i­for­nia court rules that pri­vate school can oust les­bian stu­dents. I do under­stand that it’s a pri­vate reli­gious school and that […]

What Can All Couples Learn From Same-Sex Marriages?

From Gay Unions Shed Light on Gen­der in Mar­riage A grow­ing body of evi­dence shows that same-sex cou­ples have a great deal to teach every­one else about mar­riage and rela­tion­ships.

This began as a com­ment in misia’s jour­nal. I do believe that sex­u­al vio­lence is under­re­port­ed, espe­cial­ly in men. I don’t believe that 100% of the female pop­u­la­tion has expe­ri­enced sex­u­al vio­lence. I do think the “1 in 4 women” sta­tis­tic is prob­a­bly on the low side.
