In my observation, any child taken to a specialist for assessment is told he or she needs some kind of intervention. Because that's how they make money.

OR: Older DC is in a district G&T, and I don't know that test score is a reflection of ability to keep up. I'm sure some of the kids in the class were heavily prepped; others not. All the kids seem to be doing just fine. Reality is that test score is a reflection of their performance on that particular day. Do I think any child who scores in the 90+ range is "dumb"? No, I don't. But I think that there are plenty of very bright kids who bomb it every year because they were having a moment. They are four after all. At the end of the day, it's a bit random, but doesn't cost you anything to play the game. Just don't get crazy over it, as I've seen many parents do having gone through it twice. [ Reply | More ]

Euro feminists (at least in the western Euro countries) made sure that mandatory paid maternity leave was instituted decades ago, and paternity leave is also very common.

It has nothing at all do with remembering. The legal question is whether or not there was effective consent.

Not only that, but consent gets extended to whom you permit to see you having sex, even if you consent to the sex itself.

Do you think that merely by leaving her own home and losing consciousness a woman relinquishes her right to consent? oh no, only if she's lost consciousness from alcohol, in which case you think you can blame her for loosing the ability to defend herself (which you would NEVER do)... reread the previous poster, she said she was passed out while two married men had sex with her.

Yes. Problem for young women is, sometimes the charming popular guys are predators. [ Reply | More ]

She said blacked out, not passed out. They are different in a significant way. [ Reply | More ]

I can just never figure out why if two college students are drunk and the girl is too drunk to consent, why is the drunk boy supposed to be magically sober enough to know how drunk the girl is? Lots of people act fairly lucid even when they are in blackouts and don't remember anything the next day. [ Reply | More ]

There was a girl who was at a party in the suite of hockey guys who lived on the top floor of my dorm. I ran into her in the ladies room where she was fixing her hair. She had a nice black leather jacket on the floor under the sink. We talked for a few minutes and then she asked me if she could leave her jacket in my room because she was getting hot. I got her name and she got mine and my room number. I took her jacket but she never came back for it. I waited all the next day then tracked her down. She had been crying all day that someone stole her expensive jacket the night before. She had zero recollection of asking me to hold it or of ever meeting me. [ Reply | More ]

If the "boy" is too drunk to reasonably have known the "girl" didn't/couldn't consent, then it's not rape [ Reply | More ]

Sometimes I wonder. By the next day who is to say who was how drunk and when. FWIW I have both a daughter and a son who are teenagers and this stuff keeps me up sometimes. [ Reply | More ]

the boys are not too drunk (what man that is blackout drunk can get it up?), they have pumped the girls with drinks and they have had only one or two (the boys are just buzzed, big difference). [ Reply | More ]

Also, even if they had more yhan two, a girl will get drunker on far less than a boy. Body weight and metabolic rates are different. [ Reply | More ]

True. But here's the deal. Some predatory boys will give girls alcohol for the express purpose of getting them drunk enough to have sex, when otherwise they wouldn't. [ Reply | More ]
