Why We Need Mental Health Education in Our Schools  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
There’s a serious lack of understanding when it comes to mental health, yet most schools don’t teach kids about mental health problems or have regular mental health awareness drives. This is worrying, because mental health is a pressing issue in the US. Recent surveys suggest that while states have provided expanded access to Medicaid programs […] ...

Or Maybe Not  »  Depressed Single Mother
I'm starting to get worried now. Maybe I shouldn't go to this group. There's the lesbian mother's group, and they meet on a Saturday afternoon, which I can't do because I've no babysitter. But there's another one called Rainbow Families that I could do, because it's for the children rather than the adults. They go on outings and such. So I'd be taking The Boy with me.I know it'd be good for The Boy. I know I'm a bad mother for even considering not going. But I feel ill. I can't stop shaking! I want to hide away. I think ...

Post-holiday blues  »  Cornish Dreamer
I've been on holiday. Not a long holiday, just a week. It doesn't explain my absence, I know. My first thoughts this morning as I stepped into my cold, dark office, was that I didn't know what I was doing here. The feeling weighed down in my stomach like I'd swallowed some rocks. This isn't me right now. 'Me' is someone else - somewhere else - tasting life and doing things that are fascinating and, quite frankly, cool. Work does not make me feel alive and buzzing like my holiday in Sicily made me feel. Instead, I feel like I've hugged ...

All Yesterdays: A Cognitive Shift In How We Look At Dinosaurs  »  Moonlight Investigation
All Yesterdays will make you love dinosaurs anew. The way we view dinosaurs, and the way that artists have depicted them, has changed greatly over the last century (and even over the last decade). Though a child of the 1980s, my love for dinosaurs started with hand-me-down dinosaur books from the 1960s and 1970s which depicted swamp-dwelling brachiosaurs and bulky, slow-moving biped hunters. At 10 years old my view of dinosaurs was changed forever by Jurassic Park (the book and movie, I was a bit of a JP junkie). Fast moving, sleek, powerful dinosaurs were now all the rage ...

The Anti-Gay Cake Wars Escalate: But Does the Right Have a Point?  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
It’s fair to say that Theodore Shoebat really doesn’t like the “gay agenda.” Together with his father, he writes for the site Shoebat.com which at the minute seems rather preoccupied with all things anti-Islam but also runs articles like “Jesus Wants us to Resist the Homosexual Agenda.” In the past Theodore Shoebat is on record as […] ...

Christmas charity donations  »  Things I can't tell boyfriend number 1
Christmas comes but once a year, and for the past 7 years (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013), I've asked readers for suggestions for the charity donations that I always make at Christmas. This year there's about £1000 to give away, so don't be shy, leave a comment and tell me about your favourite charities :-). The one rule is that because of the way I do my donations, I can only donate to charities that are registered with the UK ...
