<quoted text>How did you gauge right and wrong before you adopted your new beliefs? I was taught basic ethics by the people who influenced me as a young child. These teachings were reinforced by experience. In my case, I was instilled with a solid set of moral values and had a childhood free of serious mental trauma. Why don't you read a text on human development and psychology?
Okay, that's the end of our interactions. Bubbye.
Exactly Elise. 20 some odd years ago or more *cough* I bought into the whole organized Baptist religion thing. I found myself "hoping" I had pleased God and fearing constantly that I had done something to offend God because there are so many "critics" out there. Most of them were fellow Baptist. Then I took an Ethics class while in Nursing School. Next to Anat & Phys, and Biology, it was one of my favs. Passed it with A's haha. Of course it got controversial at times, but it opened my mind and my eyes. I for one do not need religion to define for me what is morally correct. I think it's natural to know. Comparatively, there are few human beings that absolutely do not know right from wrong.

And you know what? Maybe is is one day in the future - but it would take an act of Congress to change how the draft works, and who would be drafted.
No intelligent person can envision a Congress that would enact a draft women in it.
A volunteer military is a completely different animal than one filled by a military draft.
If a draft ever happens again, and women aren't drafted, I wonder if women will be demanding equality and insisting that they be included.....

My Grandma was also infamous for giving a pinch on the arm. She'd manage to get a good piece of skin and she had a penchant for doing that shit when we'd be in church. You knew damn well you couldn't scream because if you did, your ass was grass and she was the lawnmower when you got home!! I swear, my Abuelita's a thug! There's nothing funnier than listening to my hardcore beefcake Marine cousins talk about how they'd rather deal with all the craziness that has to do with serving in a war torn country than deal with the wrath of my Gram, LMAO!!

Since a draft doesn't stop people from volunteering, I doubt it. Women that WANT to volunteer - can, and get whatever duty they qualify for just like the men do.

Hell MEN dont want to BE drafted. Nobody WANTS a draft.

IF a draft ever happened again, women would NOT be drafted, unless congress changes the rules.

With a volunteer military, so long as there's enough troops, there wont be a draft anyway.

Dont get me wrong, I dont WANT to see women drafted, I have a child that would be draft eligible.

But there's enough REAL drama in the world (heck, JUST within the abortion debate) without bitching about pretend drama that's nowhere near being a REAL worry.

I'm better than you because you cannot describe me in one word? Really?
<quoted text>
No. I'll say it angers me to be mislabeled as part of a "kill all" crowd when that is furthest from the truth. It angers me to be accused of holding a "double standard" because I believe women are intelligent and strong enough to determine their pregnancies' outcomes without outside influence.
(do you need the definition of "double standard" in order to use it appropriately?)
<quoted text>
I do? I struggle with the point a human fetus becomes a child? As opposed to what? Not struggling when a canine fetus becomes a puppy?
<quoted text>
Is that how I handle my life? With "whatever gauge is handy and fits the mold"? How do you determine such a thing without sitting here as accuser, judge and jury of all women?
<quoted text>
I see you proved my point by playing accuser, judge and jury of all women. You write as if your God would view me in the same biased light you do.
Exactly right.

Not upside the head, right on that tender spot between hip bone and buttocks. My gramma always had good aim! Mom did it for fun, though. Not gramma. She meant bidness.

Good times, STO!

No matter what you think of me God is just, and will be a true judge. I just ask you to think how you will do when you stand before Him?
You say I accuse and judge, is that not what you and others do?
you say you're all for womens sexual and reproductive rights, but it seems that theory is beginning to crumble, as some say if a woman conducts herself this way or that, then she's a slut /whore.
Plus you judge me for judging?
Its like saying "I hate certain people, who hate certain people! " :)
I know how you and other pro choice folks think, becouse I used to be pro choice.
When.I seen myself the way God does -I realized I needed something.
Turns out, it was a savior.
Just becouse someone doesn't word things the way you think they should, doesn't mean they don't have good intentions and care about you and your future.
"When.I seen myself the way God does"

You're blind. In too many ways to list.

The really dumb this was them assuming that the possibility of women being drafted had not occurred to any of us, and that they needed to point it out to us.

There is no one "moral standard". That is the point.
Morals are subjective, not objective, and relative to the person/group holding them.

Where do we draw the line?
just in our laws alone -people in times past would be punished, for things that we are told to accept as normal.
Where will it end?
There are a few who believe in doing things, that even the most liberal of people would find hugely offensive, yet to them it is just how they roll.
They say it is better to drag out into the open what is growling at you, so atleast you know the truth -good or bad.
A person will never be liberated,untill they realize the truth.
WE draw the line at you live your life as you see fit, so long as it does not infringe on another person's civil rights. We do the same.
