They sure are, under Stock... come hell or high water, the question of whether
women in this country can get abortions will be freely discussed by a bunch of
zealot-maniacs who will be overwhelmingly male in numbers or proportion. Hell, in
Quebec as late as the early 60's a woman needed her husband's permission to get
certain operations... why not 'freely discuss' the removal of those rights, and
while we're at it the question of women's sufferage needs to be frankly and
openly examined again- mp's need the right to vote on these and other issues...
all in the name of rights will they remove peoples' rights left, right & centre,
so to 'speak'.

Yes yes yes, the awful left have the temerity to wander if rights enjoyed by all
Canadians are in fact less important the the rights of social-conservative mp's
to remove these rights. It's the American way after all, respecting & touting the
fundamental rights of assholes while gleefully trampling on the rights of people
who don't want to live by assholes' rules.

Funny how you connect the two- so what do you call right-wing gun-nuts?

Well, by accident you're almost on to something here- it is frequently much worse
to have moral issues that all Canadians are already free to 'discuss' from coast
to coast enter the domain of mp's and their policy-setting discussions. I'll bet
the fiscal conservatives would agree on this one...

No, it's perverting democracy to remove rights some demogogues simply have no
right to interfere with.

What 'special rights' do they enjoy which us hets are currently denied? Marriage?
Tax-back on partners? Sex? Which of these do you as a straight person feel is
unavailable to you?

Yup. I agree.
