'God's plan' is often a front for men's plans and a cover for inadequacy, ignorance, and evil.

Re: “I wasn’t surprised by the SMU rape chant

Too bad they are so anal about funding the Women's Center. A good one would be one of the only things that could entice me to go to university. You are right about them not being direct and only covering their ass. They don't really care about the safety of their female students.

Re: “

I agree with you. It is not radical. It is certainly attainable. Education is a right. This would save a lot of people from being damned to the working class treadmill never advancing. Much like my parents who could not afford university. We certainly pay enough in taxes and see little benefit from it.

Re: “Here’s why I’m not voting for Darrell Dexter

"You ended up raising a tax that hit everyone, even the poorest folks in our province." You are so right about this. It hit my working class family very very hard. I like some of the stance of this party most of it ideologically but in practice they failed. I think I will vote communist instead.

Re: “SMU's pro-rape chant: a teachable moment

It is a shame that people like Jared Perry even exist. Men like him need to be castrated.

Re: “Mike Savage was elected mayor one year ago this week. What do you think?

I think he needs to use his position of privilege to make Halifax a safer city for women. He could start by implementing the Nordic Model on human trafficking.

Re: “The politics of BULLSHIT

If the NDP really cares about women they need to stop using the euphemism "sex worker" and start calling these women what they are- CRIME VICTIMS! Prostituted women! A true social democratic party would acknowledge how beneficial the Nordic Model on human trafficking has proven to be. Our bodies are not for sale! Johns are scum and need to be dealt with harshly by the law! equalitynow.org/sites/default/files/Nordic_Model_EN.pdf

Re: “Red-light greenlight: Sex work at the brink of legalization

"The prudish public---anti-sex work feminists and family-valuing conservatives alike---are giving way to a slowly building consensus that creating legal conditions around sex work is the only way forward."
No this is false.
Anti-sex work feminists as you call them, better known as abolitionist feminists support the Nordic Model on sex trafficking, which criminalizes the buying of sex but does not target sex workers. "Sex work" is a euphemism for the hell that is being a prostituted woman.
Prostituted women are crime victims and punished by the male supremacist society that threw them under the bus in the first place.
No woman's flesh is capital. Our bodies are not for sale! No man has a right to buy a woman's body to use and abuse. I have talked to many prostituted women who have suffered unimaginably in this so called tradeand had no choice due to poverty.
Money does not equal consent.
The men who abuse prostituted women are absolute scum and legalizing the sex industry industry itself and not going after the pimps and johns for the criminals they are would be a huge mistake and a huge blow to the status of women in Nova Scotia.
Legalization of the sexual slavery industry has failed to keep women safe from male violence in countries that have tried it. It is widely proven to be failed and should not even be considered. It puts the most vulnerable women due to poverty, skin color, disability and other social disadvantages at risk of being trafficked.
Stepping Stone in my opinion is an insult with their ad campaigns and use of euphemistic terms such as "sex work" and "consent". There is no meaningful consent when a man in a patriarchal society with money buys a woman's very body to torture in any way he pleases. The ideals of this org denies basic dignity to victims of human rights abuses! Being prostituted is not simply a "job" like any other as flipping burgers. Does your boss and McDonald's rape you in the ass until you bleed?
Women deserve more than being prostituted. No woman wants that. Men do NOT have any right exploit women through the sexual slavery business!
