how about keeping your political biases to yourself?

Dec 9, 2007

"You are 21 and you are still concerned about contracting HIV from yourself via masturbation and contact with your own spunk??? Let me guess. You were home-schooled and come form (from)a devoutly religious family, right? Hmmmm. Another one!!!!"

Are you really enough of an ass to suggest that home schooled kids are really this stupid? Or that devoutly religious people lie to their kids? I don't have a clue how you get away with this kind of insensitivity. Keep your left leaning bias to yourself, and just answer the questions!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Actually I don't think home schooled kids are stupid. They are, however, often "uneducated." It's their clueless parents who think they are teachers who are really stupid.

As for devoutly religious people lying to their kids, well, yeah, I believe some do. Of course devoutly religious people have "swallowed the Kool-Aid" and so they often truly believe some of the poppycock preached from the pulpit. After all, "intelligent design" is anything but intelligent!

Although I admit I may often be a bit farther "left" than the salad fork, the above comments have more to do with common sense than with "political bias".
