    I used to laugh it off, but now, I do wonder to myself what they are thinking whenever it happens! It's so obvious that it won't warrant a response -- it almost seems like wasted energy. You're absolutely right that it can also turn violent -- it's something that hopefully we can continue to collectively discourage.

    This is a hot question even in 2018? The #WitchHunt has begun. We attack male adulterers for their alleged sexual infidelities . How should we feel about women who allegedly OPENLY sleep with married male politicians on their climb to election? Watching Kamala Harris attack Gina Haspel.....just wondering what Kamala's approach would have been if Gina was Gino? Would she try to seduce her to get ahead? As a retired politician I had to think about why it matters how we behave on our way to the top. What do we female politicians feel about women working beside us who have had allegedly had adulterous affairs with married mayors of their city and still try to present themselves as moral compasses? My question while I was watching her attack a remarkable woman, Gina Haspel, was: "Kamala Harris: is it still adultery to sleep with a married man? YES OR NO? Should we as female politicians feel and express moral outrage when female politicians working beside us are publicly reported to have slept with important corrupt married male politicians on their climb to their elected office yet preach like they are a judge of character ? YES OR NO? Should we vote for them? YES OR NO? If I wanted to run for President, who should I sleep with next? That's not a YES OR NO question, please give me a list of vulnerable men married to living breathing wives. What if someone slept with your husband? Would she be an adulteress? YES OR NO?

    Hello, @Rebel93! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this controversial matter. I identify as a Ukrainian Orthodox Christian, and I don't agree with the notion of abortion. But, that's my personal opinion, and I don't believe that everyone has to (or should, for that matter), share my ideas and principles. I wouldn't want someone to tell me how to control my body, so why should I tell someone what to do with theirs? Ultimately, I believe that it is the choice of the person - not mine. Truly, I don't believe that anyone genuinely wants to have an abortion. It's seldom someone's initial thought, and it's typically not something one does with joy. The notion of abortion is difficult for many who may experience it, with people often feeling guilt and sadness following the procedure. It's pro-choice, not pro-abortion. It's not advocating for the increased prevalence of the practice - it's advocating for the right to decide what one does with their body. 

    I also, respectfully, disagree with the phrase "pro-life." I do not believe that those who are pro-choice are not pro-life. I highly suggest considering the case of Wendy Davis, who is a devout Christian who had an abortion (https://www.thedailybeast.com/a-christian-case-for-abortion-rights). For her, abortion was the most compassionate choice - her child would have been both brain-dead and physically paralyzed. Although one may argue that she was playing the role of God in deciding who should live and who should not, I do not believe that this was the case. So, what do we do when there are instances when abortion is truly the most compassionate choice? 
    I'm also heavily involved in the scientific field and believe in scientific fact. I believe in climate change, among other things, and recognize that there is some scientific evidence to support the idea that the "child" is merely a zygote during the stage of abortion. It's true that the zygote could become a child, but the commonly used phrase "abortion is murder" appears misleading if examined in this specific context. Plus, although many persons of faith dispute science on the grounds that it runs counter to some of what is said in religious texts, what if scientists are carrying out God's work? That's an interesting question that I've pondered for quite some time, and I suggest you do so as well if compelled. 
    To wrap this comment up, I'd like the note the importance of listening to people's stories. These stories are painfully absent in the anti-abortion movement. This can be the same for the pro-choice movement, as well, but I have found that they often try to raise the stories of people who had abortions. Their stories are often cast away as sinful, even though they can actually have tremendous compassion and poignancy. 
    Again, I absolutely believe that you have a right to your opinion and should be able to express this opinion as often and as fiercely as you'd like. This is simply my opinion as one religious individual to another. I hope you find merit in some of my points, as I've found much in yours. I have much to learn, and I believe that my faith is a process that is ever-changing. Please do reveal other sides of the argument that I have not considered, or reach out to me at janderson@nyatoday.com. 

    As always, I do not represent or speak on behalf of programs and organizations of which I am affiliated (specifically, NYAToday and the United Nations Global Ambassadors).

    Unprocessed rape kits, statute of limitations aside, the destruction of kits and badly stored kits and the failure to prosecute rapists is revealed by this HBO Documentary. It is scandalous that such crimes against women have gone unprocessed and that rapists are allowed to live freely.....Is it time for vigilante justice or a huge class action lawsuit against LE and government. Mostly women of color have been disregarded and their rapists have not been identified.....How much should each one of them be paid to make them whole.....how much is enough......Just sayin.....

    I don't agree. Proper parenting can teach men to respect women of all ages and treat them accordingly. If a man has never been taught the way of the gentleman, then it is up to him to choose to learn by observation of the remaining true gentlemen. Women need to give positive reinforcement to those men who conduct themselves as purveyors of kindness. The act of chivalry reveals more about the man than the recipient woman. Good men treat all women with regard for their place in our world.....

    "Early Sunday morning, 25-year-old Chikesia Clemons from Mobile, Alabama was brutally arrested inside a Waffle House." It is sad but not surprising to see the lack of coverage and conversation the mainstream media has given to the polices' excessively violent and brutal interaction with Chikesia Clemons. It highlights the way the stories of black women are barely prioritized in the media which becomes another factor of police brutality and the mistreatment of black women across the country.

    Dear Diamond and Silk, Re women's rights to their opinion.....First Amendment Rights: The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prevents Congress from making any law respecting an establishment of religion, prohibiting the free exercise of religion, or abridging the freedom of speech.... So is Mr. Zuckerberg more important and more powerful than Congress?????? Naaaaaa.... On behalf of all of the women of the world, I congratulate you on the decision by Zuckerberg that you are not a danger to society. What with your big mouths and your own opinions...you may actually convert people to become Republican????? Puleeeezzzz. I enjoy you so much and I was shocked to see that anyone could say that you were a danger to anyone or anything....thank you Mr. Zuckerberg for being honest in public.....even though it wasn't true that your team at Facebook had already contacted the Diamond and Silk team about retracting that very damaging and offensive label. I hope that Facebook gets on to ridding the Facebook posts made by #FinancialPredators and #RomeoCrime actors who try to seduce women with money online so they can steal their money while pretending to love them. They are dangerous. They try to reach us on Facebook Messenger and commit Nigerian419 crimes against women. Now that we have successfully uncovered what the difference is between dangerous and opinionated, maybe Zuckerberg can send your favorite charity $1,000,000.00. Now what is your favorite charity girls???? Go ahead and post it on your Facebook page. This is not extortion or threatening the Facebook team, it is rather an invitation to show how sorry they are. Stay beautiful and outspoken....you say many things some women can only think so when it comes out of your mouths.....!!!!!#$^@**@(()!@)!)^ Luvu.

    I don't agree with the idea that it is our responsibility as a potential victim to have to alter our actions/wardrobe/life in any way to try to deter an attacker from being successful. With that in mind, I do carry pepper spray, check my back seat & under my car before getting in it, park in well lit areas, avoid going places alone at night, don't listen to my headphones while walking on empty streets, don't make eye contact or engage in any way with harassing comments...all of which are specific behaviors engaged in in an attempt to limit my chances of "putting myself in harms way". We are taught that if we practice these defensive maneuvers we are smart, we are taking our safety seriously by navigating even the most mundane aspects of our days like we are on patrol. This is not empowering. This is sending a superficial message that we can stand up for ourselves and shouldn't have to live in fear of the bad guys, but the real message underneath that is actually resonating is that we should fear everyone and it is our failure to spot and stop them that results in assault. It also perpetuates the inaccurate stereotype that the place you are at highest risk is out in public, that is where the attackers lye in wait for random anonymous prey. The idea that any products purchased, or any sequence of behaviors enacted out as a defense against your fears is not safety; that is the acceptance of rape as a statistical inevitability for an unlucky 1/5 of the female population, and attempting to stay in the lucky 4/5. The fundraising efforts should be put toward campaigns that educate and re-define what rape is. Spreading awareness of what rape actually is-no grey area, no stigmas, no creative wording-we will create a culture of intolerance of it, and dismantle the current culture of excusing it.

    Victim blaming of rape victims has to end.......what was he wearing when he decided to commit a crime against a person? Do we ask what men were wearing when they got raped....yes men do get raped. Do we ask what someone was wearing when they were in their home and the break and enter turned into a rape? Do we ask rapist what we should wear so that they don't rape us and will that work? So someone who wears a burka will not get raped? America is not a third world country. Sex is available on nearly every street corner. Sex workers get raped too. So it is not about the clothes on her back. It is about control. It is about making someone feel fear and pain and suffering. BE CAREFUL RAPISTS.....THE NEXT THING SHE MAY BE WEARING IS CALLED CONCEALED CARRY AND YOUR DICK WILL BE BLOWN OFF BEFORE YOU GET TO USE IT. TAKE THAT.
