Topic Sexuality
Posted 17 Oct 2010 01:42

I was talking about this with some friends the other night. I like both men and women, but have never needed to label myself as being bi - I;m attracted to who I am attracted to regardless of gender.

However I know a lot of people who find it very important to say "Hey I'm bi" "Hey I'm straight" or "Hey I am gay" and will always make it very clear.

I guess this is more of a question for bi people, but how important do you feel it is to label your sexuality?

Buy a rice cooker. Rinse the rice at least 3-4 times to wash the starch off before cooking.

Yes! When I was in Malaysia I asked somebody to teach me how to make really good rice. They looked at me like I was crazy and switched on their rice cooker. Apparently people don't use their pots any more.

So do you have to vote for someone or can you just send in a blank vote?

Topic Compulsory Voting
Posted 09 Oct 2010 14:58

Forcing people to do anything they don't want to is always going to end badly.

I don't like it. I didn't vote last time around, they hadn't changed my address in their system, so I didn't bother. I haven't been fined yet.

How much of a fine do you get if you don't vote?

I agree. The first six months travelling I was constantly on the move and didn't have a laptop so didn't log on in that time. I didn't feel the need to come on. But then I got a laptop adn things slowed down, so I do come on most days

Topic Am I the only one?
Posted 09 Oct 2010 11:31

Obviously not the only one.

For me age is not really important. Most of my friends are older than me. I find it hard to get along with people my age, because we can't necesarily relate to each other. I am somewhat more mature than others and have had different experiences than most people my age. I don't avoid men, or people in general my age, it just so happens that I tend to form relationships (both sexual and not) with people older than myself.

Topic tattoo on my ass
Posted 09 Oct 2010 11:21

i just cant think of anything else to get????

You shouldn't be getting that just because you can't think of anything else to get. A tattoo should be something personel to you, it will be on you forever. You don't need to be able to explain those reasons to others, but have those reasons for yourself. It's important you think it's attractive. My tattoo has personal meaning to myself and I feel no need to explain it to others.

Someone once said to me, if you are unsure wait 6 months or a year and if you still really want it then get it, but often people change their mind and are glad they didn't get it in the first place.

Topic Compulsory Voting
Posted 09 Oct 2010 11:15

Ladyx's thread made me think of this, and I think it deserves a thread of it's own. Recently an Australian couple were telling me that it was compulsary to vote and I have read a few articles over here about people wanting to make voting compulsary. Was just wondering what people thought of this?

I guess sending in a blank ballot would count as voting.

Topic Should "alternative health" practicioners be prosecuted for misleading patients?
Posted 04 Oct 2010 17:50

What if whoever is prescribing the treatment really believes it works? They aren't knowingly misleading anybody.

A few years ago when I was sick, I was in and out of the hospital for year. On multiple medications, all of which had some sort of side effect; nausea, allergic reactions, fatigue...etc The doctors were doing invasive tests and eventually I got sick of having tubes shoved down my throat I thought "Fuck it" and went off all the medication and refused to see a doctor. I was having horrendous stomach pains, trouble breathing, was suddenly allergic to everything, was constantly tired, had migraines....

Instead I went to see a naturopath, a homoeopath, an acupuncturist... I sought after any alternative therapy I could find. Things were slow at first, but eventually I found some things that worked. Without going into too many details I recovered and am no longer allergic to the world. None of the treatments required things being shoved into uncomfortable places or anaesthesia. My parents were resistant when I took this approach. They thought it was a load of bollocks and that it was just a way for people to make money. My previous health care was all covered by the NHS. The alternative therapies weren't.

I think a lot of people look at health care in an either or sort of way. I think they need to be combined and worked with together in order to get the best care for the patient.

I know I went a little off topic, but my point was going to be who is it that judges practitioners are misleading patients? When the treatment doesn't work? Should that apply to all doctors?

reforming tax codes that would reward families with less than two kids.

Some European countries are lowering taxes for people with large families. I know Germany and France did it for a while. Spain as well and possibly Italy.

Topic Biggest Problem Facing the World Today
Posted 04 Oct 2010 17:38

Without a question, the biggest problem facing the world is overpopulation.

There are not enough resources to sustain an exponentially increasing population, combined with the fact that people are living longer as well. So many environmental, social and economic issues arise from overpopulation. They estimate there will be 694 billion people on the earth by 2150 without any conditions to curb population growth. The earth simply cannot keep this many people healthy and thriving. With deforestation, pollution, global warming, and competition over jobs and education, it's said the biggest issue may be lack of access to fresh water in the end. Currently 97% of the water around us is saltwater. Without water, we cannot survive.

Do you have a solution for over population? Or a suggestion?


Yes. It is education.

That's part of it but, I fear not all. The reason I ask is a friend and I were talking over the week-end about the woman they call octomom. The one that had 8 embryos implanted. She already had 6 kids and no means of supporting them. Now she has 14 and her house is going into foreclosure and she'll be going on welfare. The question was, should she be "allowed" to have had herself impregnated and should the doctor be held accountable for doing it when he knew she had no visible means of supporting them.
Hence the overpopulation statement. Do we legally stop people from having children? Limit it to one child, like China does? Force people to have abortions or give the child up for adoption since our resources are fast running out? I always hear what the problems are but, no one offers solutions or suggestions. I don't just mean here on Lush but, everywhere else as well.

I don't think it's so simple though. If you look at it on a more local scale there are many countries where people aren't having enough babies, which will cause problems when they start working and have to support the older and younger populations. Pensions and other services will become more strained as a result. Countries like Spain, France, Germany and Russia all have policies aimed at trying to get people to have more children.

Back to overpopulation though, I think there are countries which have better policies when it comes to trying to limit the population. Kerala (I know it's not a country) in India is aiming at educating the people and not just in regards to contraception. They have built many schools for women and are trying to encourage the women to enter the work force.

Topic Is Feminism Bad for Your Health?
Posted 29 Sep 2010 03:06

I think that's ridiculous. When I was a kid my dad stayed at home while my mum worked. We moved to the UK because of my mothers job and they decided it would be better to have one parent at home instead of both working all the time.

Feminism has gotten such a bad name. I definitely consider myself a feminist, which gets a lot of criticism from my friends whenever I say that. Even my female friends. I'm not really aggressive about anything, it's just things I believe in.
