So this week a couple of guys from St. FX were found not guilty of sexual assault. The judge found that the three-way they had with an unnamed woman was by all accounts consensual (seems there were partygoers and others wandering into the bedroom from time to time who became witnesses). My Bitch is why does the law allow these guys' names and their "perp walk" photos to be published the moment they are simply accused. I notice that the female complainant still has her name and photo hidden, even after she loses the case. That system is reasonable for the woman, but hey, even if innocent the guys will have this hanging over them forever. Any reason they can't put a lid on the entire case until it is decided? WTF.

Hello person who made a Bitch about pedestrians and cyclists being slow or inconsiderate. It is I, a pedestrian and cyclist! I think you should know that any time a car is flying towards a crosswalk I do take my time. I do because my body is more vulnerable than your car. Stop coming to a rolling stop and expecting me not to give you some casual realness—it doesn't matter if I'm in a rush or not, if you are putting people in danger through your reckless driving I don't think you should be driving a vehicle. Maybe take a breather while you're at it, if you hate driving then don't, roads used to belong to those travelling on foot, driving is a privilege, so ahhh fuck you too kind person. Cheers.

The reason there are so many rules surrounding the area known as the Public Gardens is to protect the grounds from those who may take advantage and misuse them through plain ignorance or malicious intent. These rules should not be viewed as a personal affront or bureaucratic boondoggle. To put it in the simplest terms, the Public Gardens is not a park—it is a garden for all to enjoy in perpetuity. Its designation literally means that the space is to be treated very differently than a park.

You should not walk on the grass unless you and your children wish to examine the flora, which is permitted. Interacting with the wild ducks is not a problem. It is unwise to feed them because they become accustomed to this behaviour and will not migrate. Its beauty and atmosphere is meant to be enjoyed, but it should not be treated as a mere picnic site to use at your convenience. If you had a pristine garden at your home that you cared deeply about, I doubt that you would take very kindly to complete strangers endlessly traipsing through it and mucking about at their pleasure.

I suggest that you take some time and look into the history of the Public Gardens. The story of its genesis and raison d'être may help change your negative attitude, and teach you to teach your children that the Public Gardens is not a playground but a Victorian oasis in the middle of a modern city. It should be cherished and respected, and its mandate defended by everyone who appreciates the privilege of entering its gates.

This weekend I saw people peacefully showing support for the protests in Hong Kong. Opposite them, and outnumbering significantly, were international students trying to drown them out with patriotic Chinese songs/chants, distributing Chinese Communist Party propaganda, and physically blocking the HK supporters with Chinese flags and their bodies. I don’t know what the conversion rate is on their Social Credit Score back home for displaying CCP brainwashing here, but trying to suppress others is counter to everything Canada stands for.

A note that sexual assault is not caused by anxiety or depression or having a dark year, but by ignoring boundaries, objectification and entitlement. —WWSD

Just sitting here reading about the lack of participation in the recent Nova Scotia provincial election and how it seems to be a mystery to most people. Why aren't people coming out to vote? I think the message is clear. We don't trust any of the leaders or parties and we don't care enough to waste our time voting when we're going to be subject to the same shit and broken campaign promises, also known as lies, no matter who gets in. Sound about right? —One of the 53 percent

The new health centre in Bayer's Lake is meant to serve the ENTIRE province of Nova Scotia, not just the downtown core. Just because the location it doesn't prioritize the commuting of South End  and downtown residents doesn't make Bayer's Lake a wasteland or Clayton Park a ghost town. Most importantly, remember that flooded decayed hospital shaped building full of Legionnaire's disease and bed bugs that houses and treats sick patients? Would you prefer we kept services there or would you maybe like some new facilities? —HRM Resident

What kind of brain must you have to deface your 20-something body & face with tattoos that will be fucking meaningless in a couple of decades? I totally understand a well-thought out tattoo that has a lifelong meaning to someone (such as a person surviving a serious illness) but the trash I see emblazoned these days are as meaningful as the ass cheeks of a Kardashian. Don't these silly little wonks ever think of the big picture? —Your Tattoos Are Fucking Hideous, Especially The Tear Drops

I recently have taken to task people posting meme's about white privilege is the reason why the white rapist was given a higher sentence for the "same" crime committed by a black man. This isn't the case. the black man was convicted on 5 counts of a higher charge but was given a retrial because one of the jurors was a victim of statutory rape and the defence knew it was their only saving grace. they then went to trial on 3 lesser counts of sexual assault because they couldn't convict him a second time on the original charges. the sentencing took into account the 5 counts he was already convicted of. Second thing people have been complaining about. 6 months is not enough for a sentence. This is a case of people not having a CLUE about judicial proceedings. It is well within a judge's capabilities to offer less than statute sentencing, after deliberating with the WEIGHT of all evidence presented to them. Let me tell you that WOMEN are given as the NORM vs the exception lesser sentences for rape and sexual assault. in fact, I looked on a website of women convicted of sex attacks on minors and men, that they often got less than 4 months for similar crimes. only on the ones that involved children younger than 11 did they match times given to men. To all SJW's out there that post a meme that is factually inaccurate. you are morally and ethically bankrupt if you are doing this. You are disingenuous when you post these things. you are lying with inaccurate "evidence" that is easily looked into. Stop making interpretations and using conjecture and accusations to silence someone who is trying to correct you for it. If you want support for your cause...STOP FUCKING LYING. Lastly, when debating or arguing, at least go by the Principals of Debate...instead of braying like a donkey over and over in an effort to drown out anyone who differs with your opinion. —Icky
