Whoever said they decided not to get in the middle of a FB rant-o-mania by idiots was wise.

I am very sure that in my state at least, if the defendant is charged with forcible rape, a showing that the victim was under the age of consent is not enough to support a conviction. Our courts rejected that argument back in the late 1800s.

I never said that it was forcible rape, I said that there is no such thing as consensual statutory rape.

Yes but it would be enough to support a charge of statutory rape.

Has anyone looked at the Missouri guy's argument? What of this?

Physical Effects of Stress on Fertility
When the body feels stress, it immediately goes into protection mode. Life preservation ranks higher than reproduction, so getting pregnant when stress levels are high can be difficult. This has nothing to do with a physical inability to conceive, but with genetic wiring. Stress was once defined as physical threat. Today, we react to emotional and perceived stressors in the same way we react to physical stressors. The body does not know the difference and thus reacts the same in both situations. With stress levels high, menstrual cycles can be thrown off cycle or cease all together. This can make ovulation prediction and conception extremely difficult.

COVER STORY

Does stress hinder conception?
The relationship between mental state and fertility is a complex one.

The idea that stress causes infertility is an old one. Couples struggling to conceive hear it all the time: "Just relax!" "Have a glass of wine!" "Take the pressure off by adopting a child, and you'll get pregnant in no time!"
Today's researchers, however, believe that psychological factors--while important--are secondary to biological ones. They know that the interaction between factors is complex. And while some studies support the idea that stress-reducing interventions boost pregnancy, the jury is still out.

Chronic stress and short-term stress (like fight/flight situations) effect the body differently. Those appear to be referring to chronic stress.

I'm not going to post a bunch of cited research here but I'm going to say stuff that will offend some people.

Spreading genes ensures the survival of the species. I always figured rape was more likely to result in pregnancy that consensual sex.

Thomas Aquinas said that rape was less of a sin than masturbating, because at least rape could result in pregnancy.

Genghis Khan's genes would probably agree with you.

How fucking stupid do you have to be to think that Heineken is sponsoring illegal dog fights? There was nobody in the comments even questioning this lunacy. facepalm.gif

Is there a dog fighting channel?

It's weird to see somebody filming that kind of spectacle..

I'm guessing there are probably underground dog fighting dvds you can buy at swap meets and the like.

Why would anyone want to watch dogs fight?

And why do people find it so appalling? I mean it's not nice for sure, but they're dogs, not people. I think some have trouble making that distinction. I think it's just as cruel to own dogs in a place like a major metropolitan area. As long as we're attaching human qualities to animals, why do people think it's fine to keep a dog locked up in an apartment all day so that they have their personal plaything to jump all over them in joy now that they can finally eat, piss, and do something other than lick themselves? (Obviously the above doesn't apply to guard dogs, seeing eye dogs, etc.)

That dog fight is taking place in Asia. Heineken may very well be sponsoring it. Europeans are great moralizers, but they never let morals and ethics get in the way of a good profit.
