"Kiss My Face" has pretty decent products, and I believe they're completely vegan. It's sort of hard to find depending on where you live, though.

That one line of L'Oreal doesn't do animal testing. I'm not sure why they made a small portion of their products vegan, but hopefully the positive feedback they've gotten from customers and animal rights organizations will help them change their mind about their other products.

I also think public schools need to be severely over-hauled. There were only a few upper-level classes I ever even felt like I had to study for when I was in public schools. Most of the classes weren't challenging for me, and they were too challenging for others, yet the school insisted we needed to do away with lower-level classes and honors classes. :|

Blobbenstein I was home educated for a few years (8ish to 11) and I think I missed out of socialising..I'm glad I went back to school for secondary education(11 onwards).

I love the steamy summer, and I love the rain. grin.gif

I agree that public school wastes an incredible amount of kids' time for the little actual learning that takes place. And the textbooks they use in our local school districts are deplorable.

thatsright I agree and disagree. I went to one of the best school systems in the country so I feel I got a decent education, but I can't speak for most of my friends who can't spell correctly lol

I agree with you. I remember from another thread that you unschool, and I think that's fantastic!

Wesley Crusher is one of my favorite Star Trek characters.

 

I think candy is good for my health.

 

I think time outs and other contrived consequences are not good for kids.

 

OK, that should get me in plenty of trouble for now.

I think you can be a vegetarian for your own health but it doesn't make sense to be a vegan for health as you wouldn't avoid wool, leather, fur, circuses etc... for health reasons.

 

My unpopular opinion is that I am so sick of reading how "bad" white bread/rice/pasta is for people.

I don't think those people would say that's an unpopular opinion; they just expressed their own opinion on it.

Personally, I prefer to see this issue not in terms of good vs. bad, either-or, 1 or 0. Even my own vegan lifestyle is not just "good", full stop. I still contribute to environmental destruction, I still participate in a fundamentally violent society. But being vegan is a very big and necessary part in embodying common decency towards other sentient beings.

Going veg*n for health reasons is a step in the right direction, but that doesn't mean there can't be any negative considerations, such as possible lack of political solidarity with the animal rights movement, or unawareness or lack of caring towards, or participation in, other ways animals are exploited.

I agree with that.

I like wearing black when it's hot out even though everyone is always telling me it's a bad idea tongue3.gif

Some atheists just want to set up a straw-man by saying that Christians must believe x, and then go on to say how believing x is ridiculous.

Logical fallacies are used on both sides of every argument all day long, I believe that.

Is the reverse true too? Or only that specific orientation? I think in general no one likes to be told what to believe/eat/wear/do/think...
