The creeping cancer of political correctness.
Look am I the only one wondering why physical examinations were necessary? A woman who’s just given birth is usually pretty messy down there. A quick look at their underwear, with them wearing it, should have been more than enough. This behaviour is appalling and totally unnecessary. However, given the prevailing attitude to women in that part of the world, it’s not surprising.
The article itself hit the nail on the head in regards to a solution to this problem. The social worker said when talking about another child suicide that ‘The family didn’t give us any information.’ Therein lies the problem.
The New Zealand economy is in a perilous state and ‘empathy’ isn’t going to fix that.
I have my hair cut every six weeks at a cost of $30. That works out around $25 per month. That’s it.
I’m 75 years old and I’ve had more flakers than you can count, although I do believe that this behaviour is more common now than when I was young.
I had to have a hysterectomy at 28 due to severe endometriosis. My husband and I had been trying for six years but after multiple miscarriages, we succumbed to the inevitable.
Good grief! Does anyone really care about the state of the marriage? How credible is an ex friend with an axe to grind?
I was cheering for Irena from day one. I’ll admit to bias because I’m a retired nurse. She handled the argument with Bella in a mature way, while Bella behaved like a five year old. Irena just seems genuinely nice and mature, so I choose her.
Just another symptom of the disease of entitlement sweeping the western world. So many people think they’re entitled to have what they want with little to no effort or inconvenience on their part. Whatever it is you think you’re entitled to for free, just remember that someone has had to put in some time and effort to make it available in the first place. It’s up to you to recognise that and pay them.
Oh please! Michelle Obama’s no longer relevant. She grabbed the opportunity to slag off Donald Trump. No class! A classy person would have concentrated their speech on praising the Democratic candidate. You know, being positive and ensuring that her audience was made aware of how great Joe Biden is and why he’d make a great president. Probably an uphill battle but at least she could have tried.
I’m sad for you because I know your loss. I’m happy that your Christian friends and family gave you so much love and support.
Is everyone seeing therapists these days? How common is it? Do people no longer have friends or family they can talk to if they need help?
Let’s be honest here. If Joe Biden is elected president, we’ll have a situation where Kamala Harris is the one actually running the country. If you’re in any doubt about this, google Biden’s interview on The Voice answering questions about inappropriate behaviour. He constantly wandered off track and didn’t complete one sentence.
I’m a cranky old bat whom most of you would probably regard as being past her use by date. When I read comments on social media complaining about their rights being infringed, I think back to the stories told me as a child by my English relatives about living in the south of England and London during the war. Hiding under the kitchen table because there wasn’t enough warning to get to a shelter. Night after night spent with the kids sleeping in the underground. No idea where your male family members were or even if they were still alive because they were off to the war. Rationing of food and clothing.
I simply cannot close this article without commenting. I know much more about adoption than the author and I’m amazed and bewildered in equal measure. The reader may think I’m arrogant because of the statement I’ve just made, but I’m perfectly justified in making it.
I find Ciarran to be the most revolting example of the male that I’ve struck in a very long time. I didn’t like him from the minute he walked onto The Bachelorette, as I could see he was a poser with a very high opinion of himself.
Seriously Laura! Why would you let this bother you? It’s your life, your family and nobody else’s business. You’re doing yourself and your gorgeous bub a disservice by allowing others, strangers, to control your emotions. You just do you and ignore those who have nothing else to do but trawl social media looking for something/someone to criticise to make them feel better about themselves.
How dare the president of the United States expect that people will behave in a respectful, responsible manner? When did it become okay to loot and burn other people’s property for any reason? What’s it to them if there are soldiers on every corner? Protesters need to be reminded that if they want the benefits of living in a civilised democracy, they behave like civilised humans with consideration for others.
I’m a mother of a son much older than yours. I know this would be a very difficult thing to do, but for his own sake, you need to report him to the police. This would get him help. This can’t go on. Your younger children are suffering and you need to protect them.
