How do we treat women here?

Ive had a women doctor all my life. Except for the last year she retired and now i gotta gay. Not surprisingly he is a lot smarter than old doctor.

I suppose it's understandable and common to develop that kind of bias against a race, ethnicity, gender, etc. if one has been mistreated by members of that race, ethnicity, gender, etc.

Having said that, I think that kind of inductive prejudice shown by a white only wanting a white doctor or a female only wanting a female doctor or a Jew only wanting Jewish doctor, etc. should be discouraged. We want society to progress to the point where people are judged by the content of their character, not by externalities.
What all men speak well of, look critically into; what all men condemn, examine first before you decide.

It's her, and her son's, loss.

Saw, for the first time in 30 years, a couple of my parent's friends. He's well but she has Alzheimer's. :thdn: What an awful disease. To his credit, he's a saint to care for her. :thup:

It is horrible .. My father in law has it and EVERY time we go see him I have to be introduced to him.
Most times he's happy thinking he got a new son in law ...but every once in a while he gets mad thinking we got married behind his back.
I couldn't even imagine how it feels on his end. Horrible

Horrible is right...

She just nods and makes soft noises while he talks. She is incapable of following a conversation. Again, he's a SAINT because it must be tough to be her caregiver.

What's awful... when you ask him about her, he discusses her condition, with her 2 feet away, knowing she will not remember/understand what he's saying. It has an eerie surreal quality to it.

On a day like today where so many Canadians - gay AND straight celebrate the LGBT community it is sad to see what is happening as gay rights are rolled back in places like Russia - and in Turkey - which as recently as 3-4 years ago had a vibrant Gay Pride celebration in Istanbul..

Just thinking again, from watching more news, about that cladding on the apartment building that burned and killed so many, in London Engl and how it's a shame that it took this sort of incident to get this cladding changed on other buildings. Unfortunately it sometimes does require a horrendous incident to change things things though. :cry:

The CBC was discussing how far the parade has coming in Canada. It's impressive.

I remember, 35 years ago, being thought of as "gay" was the worst thing in the world. Now, in 2017, it's a non event.

Good for you and your group, Patrick. You've come a long way, baby! ;) :thup:

I wish someone would run an article, in a major newspaper, or write a book, about how far the CFL has come in the last 20 years. Pure positivity.

People who raise money on Fund sights, and then abuse it.

If you ask people for money, a) you better be dying, and b) you better pinch every penny. 

Sadly, some people didn't get the memo, and they ruin it for others.
