“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Our students are the achievement of a systemic commitment to producing individuals without a past for whom the future is a foreign country, cultureless ciphers who can live anywhere and perform any kind of work without inquiring about its purposes or ends.

I understand what you are saying, but 13 is very young, too young, to be exploring one's sexuality in my opinion. Personally if I had children I would not want them having sex so young or exploring their sexuality. Of course that is my opinion and how I plan on raising my children, should be lucky enough to start a family.
I'm not quite certain what you mean by "the inferior feeling male". Could you just explain so I could respond with a proper reply?
Women are in a much better place now in society than they ever have been, but this is not to say they are not still discriminated against or unequal to males (not by my belief but the social inequalities such as wages).
You mean claim to choose to conceive a child at such an age? No child can truly comprehend what it is to be a parent. I understand perhaps earlier in history children had children, but in this day and age where the life expectancy is relatively high there is no reason not to wait to mid twenties.

I would like to propose that the wildly popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory is effectively dumbing American's down by making a mockery of intellectual's.
Sudent activists at Brown University are complaining of emotional stress and poor grades after months of protesting, and blame the school for insisting that they complete their coursework.
“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes, and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” an undergraduate student going by the pseudonym “David” told The Brown Daily Herald Thursday. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. Counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay.”
Other students reported similar problems, describing maladies ranging from emotional distraction to panic attacks that they say caused them to skip assignments, miss class, and generally lose focus on keeping their grades up.
