    Good for Obama. The president trying to get the federal government to recognize it as a monument to the gay rights movement is a sign of progress.

    Cool. Also about nug?700’s comment on http://blog.codinghorror.com/they-have-to-be-monsters/

    I think there is something off.

    As I am not a sociologist, I would like someone more knowledgeable to debunk nug700’s claim that male privilege doesn’t exist and that it is females that have the advantage. To someone like me it would be easy to be taken in by nug700’s claims as it all looks so scientific but there is just something off somehow.

    When I found a positive homeopathy study, I was shocked that I couldn’t find anything wrong with it. Which is why I realized, I have a lot of learning about scientific skeptism to do.
