oops. Saw this sticky AFTER i posted a new thread *facepalm*
Family status (SO + kids): Been with SO for a year and a half. Due with my first son in March 2011.
Do you have a favorite topic?: No, not really
Is there anything about which you are particularly knowledgeable?: I have been to alot of diversity programs which focused mostly on race, religion, social economic status, and sexual orientation. So those are the topics i am most knowledgeable about.
Your hot button issue?: Anything with race, religion, and sexual orientation
Probably be nice to post an intro before I jump in, just found a thread that intrigued me
Family status (SO + kids):3 Kiddos, Alexis is 12, Alyssia is 10 and Leo is 7
Do you have a favorite topic?: Honestly I just enjoy discussions and debates. I don't believe I have a favorite topic. But I do tend to throw myself into the discussions I really enjoy
Is there anything about which you are particularly knowledgeable?: How to make a post take way more sentences than it needs to...if that counts
Your hot button issue?: Any sort of issue that deals with any type of abuse towards children. I know, it's an obvious hot button for most. I can get extremely passionate about things when discussing them and my pov, but I wouldn't consider that a hot button really
Family status (SO + kids): Military wife married for 3 years, currently living separate but still together. We have 2 gorgeous children, Mackenzie who will be on March 16th and Casey who will be 7 in June.
Do you have a favorite topic?: Ehh, not really.
Is there anything about which you are particularly knowledgeable?: I'd like to think I am knowledgeable on a lot of different topics, but mostly I am very opinionated. Lol
Your hot button issue?: I have not "hot" issues. I am open to all intelligent discussions.
Family status (SO + kids): married, two kids, 1 pending (my little womb tenant)
Do you have a favorite topic?: i love debates. i just hate when someone says 'well i'm against this just because it's wrong'. if you want to be against something thats fine, just have the knowledge and/or reason to back it up.
Is there anything about which you are particularly knowledgeable?: eh. not that knowledgeable lol
Your hot button issue?: i have two; gay marriage and welfare.
if you're gay, you're gay. i won't like you any more or any less and i'm not going to hate on you because of your sexual preference. if you're a jerk i might because you're a jerk but not because you're gay. i also don't believe in using gay-slang as an insult. but i think it's inappropriate for gays to be married in a church where gay marriage is specifically shunned against. yes we've made great strides over the years and yes change is imminant, but this is a slippery slope of what may come later.
and welfare. if you lose your job, gotta feed the kids, by all means get welfare. but don't live off it for 10 years and keep popping out kids to secure your government checks, while smoking pot. i think they should be drug tested, and should only be on welfare an allotted amount of time. just because it isn't a job you want doesn't mean you should sit on my bill anymore. if i need money to feed my kids i'll flip burgers if i have to.
