tasha murphy replied to Jezzy's discussion What Is Chivalry, And Why Should We Care?
"Its not your vagina that qualifies you for special treatment, its your womb, and so it should. Chivalry is badly named because it comes from books like Ivanhoe which were written after the fact to try to condone or justify the slaughter that the…"

"Mandie, my heart goes out to you. How utterly cruel and hurtful of your parents. That kind of rejection of who you are must be very painful. We never get too old to need our parents approval. Such blatent favouritism is really not good for your…"

Echo Hotel Lima replied to tasha murphy's discussion truth over religion
"I completely understand your point, and as others have said, most of it is simply left over remnants of dogma that want an omnipotent justice tracker in the sky. For my two cents, look for the balance in the world rather than justice. When you see…"

truth over religion

Hi, its good to be here. For me the journey to atheism was not an altogether pleasant one. My life has not been made easy by religion, making it hard to understand why I clung to it for so long. I am my fathers oldest and illegitemate child, my existance was an embarrasment to his ex-nun wife and so I was not permitted a relationship with my siblings.As a consequence my life was emotionally/financially/socially very impoverished, and to some extents still is. When my father died 4 years ago it…See More

tasha murphy replied to JF's discussion Finally, a place to relax
"I find the attempted conversions worse than the 'hate' reaction, living in rural Ireland most people just think I am mad, or going through a phase. I spent 15 years in Liverpool where 'born again' christianity seems to really be…"

I caught your tweet on the christian ads last night but couldn't respond at the time. It's a consequence of the Google ads that pop up due to the fact we're usually talking about religion. One (of many) discussion about it is here.

Oh, and Welcome to A/N! I've been to Shannon/Limerick/County Clare a half dozen times (on business) and really liked Ireland. My wife is originally from Hull, England.
