A favorite quote: "Women should be obscene and not heard." -Groucho Marx
What is your opinion on...
...abortion?: I am completely pro-choice, but adamantly against the idea of abortion as a birth control method AND the belief that "pro-choice" is synonymous with "pro-abortion" or "pro-death". I firmly believe in a woman's right to choose (again, so long as it's not a birth control method or through complete carelessness on her part). The idea that abortion could be made illegal again sickens and terrifies me. It will not stop abortion; it will send us back to the days of back-alley abortion clinics, causing not only deaths of unborn children but of mothers as well.
...drugs and alcohol?: I fully support responsible recreational drug use and legalization. I have been a responsible drug users for ten years. I am a harm reductionist, which basically means that I know that people have always done and always will do drugs, and that I believe in spreading the complete truth about drugs, the good and the bad, so that people can be educated and better equipped to make choices as to what to ingest. It follows the logic that if you are going to have a pool in your yard, it doesn't matter how high a fence you put around it -- you still should teach your children how to swim. I moderate two forums for Dancesafe.org; DS is a non-profit organization that supports safer drug use. Alcohol is factually among the worst things you can put in your body (at least in any excess) and is factually considerably more harmful than most illegal drugs.
...gay marriage? There is no reason, period, why any two consenting adults who wish to be married should not be allowed to. Any people lucky enough to find love should be able to enter a legally-binding marriage if they wish to.
...premarital sex? Well, I've had plenty and don't regret it. To me, it's not about doing it at a certain age or before a certain event but rather a person's maturity and personal choice. Sex can be just sex; it doesn't have to be a life-changing event and often isn't. Also, I would hate to have not had my fun before I get married because after the first time you have sex, you usually get curious about doing it more, with different people, and that's nothing to be thinking once you're married. And as I say it, you don't buy a car without test-driving it first.
...capital punishment (the death penalty)? COMPLETELY against. It has been factually proven to not deter crime. No person should have the right to take another person's life, even if the person taking the life is a person of authority and even if the person getting killed killed other people. It has been said that it costs less money than keeping someone in jail for life but this has also been proven untrue. Several people were found innocent AFTER they were executed, which is enough of a reason alone to not do it. I also think I'd personally RATHER be just "put to sleep" than spend the rest of my life locked in a box. As the small child of an FBI agent asked her father, "Why are they going to kill that man?" and her father replied, "Because he killed other people". The little child's response was, "But then daddy, who will kill them?" It is a vicious cycle that doesn't solve anything or undo the crimes, and instead of just having the criminals victims' families in torment for the loss of a loved one, it unnecessarily puts the CRIMINALS' loved ones in that hell, when they didn't do anything wrong.
