If FRF is having rape fantasies - well - who doesn't. But telling him to dump her because she's still figuring out where her power is - that's just denial. He won't know how to handle it when the next woman pulls this one on him. I for one am not happy to play some roles where I'm just a silly bitch. My man is just as happy to do something else that I create. I actually see this mental side of sex as partly my 'job' as his ideas are always simple dominance trips and mine are more intricate and more fun for me and for him. That's where I find my power. Women are so much more invested in understanding how to handle their power and not mimic the abuse that's out there. The struggle over all this is the relationship. There's so much to learn and I'm all for her thinking he's a perv until she's ready to do something where power-play is O.K. They've just gotta talk, experiment, read, play... If she won't do any of that - then of course - walk on.
Dr. Richard Schabas, chief medical officer of health for Hastings and Prince Edward Counties in eastern Ontario, said the H1N1 influenza outbreak needs to be put into proper perspective. About 200,000 people die in Canada every year from all causes combined, including about 4,000 from seasonal flu.
"By the time all the dust has settled on H1N1, somewhere between 200 and 300 people will have died in this country," Schabas said Thursday during a panel on media coverage of H1N1 on CBC-TV's The National.
A healthy child in Canada is about 20 times more likely to be killed by a car than by the H1N1 virus, Schabas said, but that isn't going to make the national news. Schabas criticized the media for not trying to put the story into perspective, and for being "a little too easy to spin sometimes" by public health officials.
