Do we have a thread for big issues to add?

Three *really* controversial things that should be added:

Feminism

How about:

Balanced budget amendment.
Teaching traditional family values in school.
Moment of silence, or prayer if you wish, in school.
Hate crime legislation.
Anchor babies.

You think it's funny when people hook a rope or a chain to an innocent little baby and throw it in the water?? How can you think that's funny??

I don't know what these are supposed to mean, at least not well enough to say whether I am Pro or Con. They are probably supposed to be code words for something.

Feminism isn't equivalent to women's rigght though. I don't think people still believe that women shouldn't vote, or that women shouldn't work or own property.

However, there are people that feel that the feminsim movement has nothing to really fight for now. Plus there are some things that can or not be considered feminism. Is it feminism or anti-feminist to support prostitution?
