Death shouldn't be taken as hard as it is in our society.

Also another point unlike you or me gorillas don't have a sense of themselves meaning they don't know how p...

BeardBoulevard

Today, we have many, many labels for different genders and sexualities. We have male and female, people who are both, people who change, people who don't want to be either. And we have multiple names to describe people who are attracted to males, females, neither, or all of the things considered to be genders. We have names for things that differ slightly from straight, like certain things in the greysexual range. People will passionately defend these labels and say they are real things. A lot...

victoriarizzardo
oliviarawson

The debate about the date of Australia Day has created a great divide between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Australians. January 26th is Australia Day yet it is offensive towards Aboriginal people. Indigenous Australians feel that the date of Australia Day should be changed, and with good reason. Think of it this way: would you celebrate the date that your land was invaded and your life got turned upside down? Exactly....
