Re: BYU is Stephenie a Mormon?

Growing up, and I think one of the main contributing factors to my non-belief in the church is the gender roles that is in place. I never understood why only men can have the priesthood (I realize a lot of religions are patriarchal, but that doesn't make it ok) Also, as someone who never has wanted...

Re: BYU is Stephenie a Mormon?

More questions from a non-Mormon for you! (Even better, from a non-Christian/Catholic/Atheist. I practice Ásatrú.) Anyway, I was curious as to how woman are viewed within the LDS belief system? As in, are there defined gender-roles to be followed--things that was viewed as "woman's work" and "men's...

Re: Periods...not a grammar topic

You know, I'm not one for these type of threads, especially because I don't really mind my period, but can I just state how much it sucks to be the only girl in a group of guy friends? So, no one ever comes to my house because my house is kinda scary, which is fine, however I never know what to do ...

Re: The movie Juno

My friend Melanie and I literally quote Juno and Leah, all the time. "Yo yo yiggidy yo" "I'm a suicide risk" "Juno?" "No, it's Morgan Freeman, do you have any bones that need collecting?" "Ha, only the one in my pants." and I can quote Juno after she comes back from the abortion clinic. Su Chin cra...

Re: Cullen Cars

To those of you complaining about the cars in the movie: You do realize when picking out cars for movies sponsorships play a very large part, right? This was why Bumblebee in Transformers was not a VW, and probably why the cars in the Twilight movie are different. You cannot simply film a major mov...

Re: Seth Clearwater

I think it depends highly on the area you're raised, and the type of people you're around, your family relations, etc. I think someone above me mentioned this, too. You really can't make generalizations concerning these things based off personal experiences or one high school, or one town. I can eas...

Re: Imprinting

I used to love the idea of imprinting. Of course, when I first read the book I had just gotten out of a relationship, and I was completely and utterly in love with the idea of someone having such unconditional love. There's such certainty in imprinting, and that is definitely attractive. Now I don'...
