    Do you understand what the meaning of the world "voluntarily" is?

    Re: School policy forces students to take pregnancy tests, bans pregnant teens

    How does withholding education from a pregnant teenager help her or the baby?

    How many will really go back after the pregnancy when she has to take care of the baby?

    Does the name of the school "Delhi Charter School" have anything to do with this?

    Delhi is in India and maybe they want the girls to follow some kind of moral code from India.

    No, as far as I can tell the names of the city of Delhi and Delhi charter school is just a coincidence.

    It's discrimination. The state has the right to interfere.

    **** you. Rarely does a comment on a message board truly make me angry. You are a misogynistic piece of filth.

    Did you think for even a minute about the different types of girls that might not know who they had sex with? Did you forget that there was such a thing as rape, and that it happens fairly frequently? How about the fact that many girls who are raped keep that horror a secret because it fills them with shame? But thank god for assholes like you who are going to look at those girls and just assume they are 'loose', without knowing who they are or what they may or may not have experienced.

    So this is the depths American conservatives can sink to. They are so huffed up on their own **** that they can't even recognize some of the most horrific struggles women and girls are faced with. I guess conservatives didn't put much thought to the fact that they might be kicking girls out of schools because they have been sexually abused. Scum like you might counter that a girl could just tell the school she was abused and they might give her leniency. In that case the options would be going to school or being forced to relive their trauma not own their own terms, but on some charter school administrators. No girl should ever have to go through that. Under these policies at least some certainly will.

    As a society we need to protect those who are most vulnerable. The last thing we need to do is shame them, judge them, and take away their equal opportunity to a future.

    You make me sick.

If you want to respond to one of my critiques of the right-wing with 'well Obama did that same thing' you have found yourself in the wrong place. Now lets stop with all the "classic misdirection" and actually debate each other.

    Statistically speaking, Rape occurs most often between people who know each other.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    We do the opposite.

    We give Teen Mom's their own show on MTV.

    Which then encourages more teens to have babies.

    Yah, I know. It is a well known statistic. That doesn't mean women don't get raped by people they don't know. GPS_Flex brought up girls who don't know who they had sex with as a group, and a portion of that group is women who have been abused. I was dealing with his argument specifically.

    My overall point was that he was obviously forgetting about it entirely. Whether the girl knows her abuser or not makes absolutely no difference in relation to the policy. GPS_Flex and anyone who is missing that part of the equation is either disgustingly ignorant or plainly disgusting.

    Wow, this is terrible. It's a blatant violation of Title IX and it's gender discrimination, pure and simple. And it's made worse by the fact that this is a PUBLIC charter school in Louisiana.
    LOL - are they going to pay for DNA testing, too, so they can determine who the father is and kick his ass out?

    Psychos.
