Choose 5 of the opinion prompts below. There are suggestions after some of the prompts. Please do not feel that you have to discuss all of the suggestions; you don't have to address any of them if that's your prerogative. They are there simply to provoke thought.

  • Reproductive Issues (Abortion, the availability of Plan-B over-the-counter, insurance coverage for birth control): Im against abortion. Its that simple. I dont think, because you screwed up, you can play god and take a life that can develop into a beautiful person. What if that person in your body is the next Martin Luther King? The next John Lennon? There are so many ways to protect yourself.. and if your not smart enough to do so, then should a life be taken because of it? You shouldnt be having sex if you arent willing to live with the possible consequences.
  • Religion:
  • Legal Drinking Age (Should there be an a legal drinking age? If so, what should it be? Why?): Yes. Not that people who want to drink abide by the law anyways; but alcohol takes a lot out of you. Your conscious, your ability to make choices you'd normally make. Alcohol gets women raped, people murdered, deaths by car crash, and more. People dont drink responsibly.. I think 21 is a good age where most people can decide for themselves how much they want to drink. Much younger then that, a lot of people live to party it up, they dont think ahead.
  • Animal Rights:
  • Gay rights (Gay marriage, Adoption, domestic partner rights for insurance coverage): I'm COMPLETELY for gay marraige, adoption, and everything else. The Catholic church argues that it's a sin to marry the same sex, to even love the same sex. But isnt it YOUR choice to sin? They are in love, and they want to devote themselves to their other.. is that a sin? Studies have shown that gay couples that adopt do NOT influence the child's sexual preference. I mean, sure, they might end up gay- but that'd happen if they were in a straight-marriage home anyways. I dont think gay couples are an object, some kind of disease; they are just like straight couples, two people who are in love.
  • Sex Education (Should it be mandatory? Comprehensive vs. abstinence-only): Personally, I dont like sex education. Those who are interested in sex, are doing exactly that. Those who arent, find themselves uncomfortable. Its just a bad situation. Comprehensive is immoral, and abstinence is unrealistic. No gym teacher will keep anyone from having sex. Only a long speech from a Church leader would even possibly get a thought process going.
  • Education/ Dropping out of school:
  • Censorship (Censorship in the media, Government censorship): I think censorship is needed, badly. More in TV than ever. All TV is sex, violence, gay reality shows and American Idol. I cant stand it. You can get a playboy in your nearest Jewel. I turned on the channel one time to some normal station; I see two chicks making out, taking their tops off on top of eachother in a shower. Then flashes, 'the REAL Gilligan's Island.' WHAT THE FUCK. I nearly threw up in my mouth. Perversion is so more open nowadays- and its wrong. I dont mean on sitcoms couples should still sleep in opposite beds- but children sit on the couch with their parents, then see shit like Paris Hilton taking her top off one channel after Nickolodeon. Something needs to change.

    Pick a topic, not listed above, about which you feel strongly. Tell us your opinion on it, and why you feel so strongly about it.
    Global Warming. To be blunt, it scares the living shieettt out of me. And people dont care. No, it isnt a fairytale- Antartica is melting, polar bears are drowning, sea levels are rising, and so on. Where I live in Illinois, we had the warmest winter recorded, and thats not just random, thats global warming. Dont people understand? Florida, parts of Cali, Hawaii, and little islands in Asia will be covered in water. We're talking billions of people drowning. Okay, turn your lights off when you leave the room. That wont help much. Political leaders need to pay more attention to whats going on in the world, before its too late. We cant keep holding things off until their urgent. We need to start now while it's still reversible. I may sound like a treehugger, but this is BIG.
    Now, tell us one topic that you wish people would simply stop talking about and let us know why:
    Myspace. I WONT COMMENT YOUR NEW PICTURE. You have 50 comments already.

    (Choose at least 1 prompt below.)

  • Post a picture that you feel best represents you. This may not simply be a picture of yourself. Explain to us why you chose this picture and how it is representative of your personality.
  • You're the lead singer of a popular band. We want to hear all about it. What kind of music do you play? What is the name of the band? What is the name of your album and your first hit single. Also, give us a preview of the lyrics.
  • Post an original work. This can be a poem, short story, drawing, painting, link to a sound clip, etc. Wow us with your talent.

    Well, here's a poem I wrote a year ago. Its kinda corny, but whatevaaa.

    I can no longer keep inside
    These feelings ive been trying to hide
    This increasing pain piercing my heart
    Cant you see im falling apart?

    Its you that I once deeply adored
    But I dont want to love you anymore
    You throw away feelings like its an art
    Cant you see youve broken my heart?

    All of our memories fade
    Broken are all of the promises made
    Every night I lay here crying
    Cant you see i'm slowly dying?

    Countless hours wondering where you were
    To find out that youre once again with her
    I get so sick of your denying
    Cant you see I know youre lying?

    Im afraid if I keep stalling
    Back in love id be falling
    I will for the last time walk out your door
    Cant you see you cant do this anymore?

    Where/from whom did you hear about us? Searching livejournal for good rating communities.
    The community name is Not So Ordinary. So, tell us what makes you not so ordinary: Well, the biggest thing: I dont love Myspace. I find it sickening when girls follow stupid trends, like getting skunk-like hair, ugly fake extensions and eyelashes that look like a clump of dirt. I dont say I like things to get accepted. I dont take shit from people to keep the peace. There is no peace if their talking shit. Im not extroverted, but I dont keep what I believe silent. I'm willing to make a change.
    Why do you want to join this community? I think this is one of the greater communities out there, it sends out a good message :) unlike vanity communities.
    Any last words? im eating bacon pizza.
