    When children in Turkey head back to school this fall, something will be missing from their textbooks: any mention of evolution.

    The Turkish government is phasing in what it calls a values-based curriculum. Critics accuse Turkey's president of pushing a more conservative, religious ideology — at the expense of young people's education.

    At a playground in an upscale, secular area of Istanbul, parents and grandparents express concern over the new policy.

    "I'm worried, but I hope it changes by the time my grandchildren are in high school," says Emel Ishakoglu, a retired chemical engineer playing with her grandchildren, ages 5 and 2. "Otherwise our kids will be left behind compared to other countries when it comes to science education."

    With a curriculum that omits evolution, Ishakoglu worries her grandchildren won't get the training they'll need if they want to grow up to be scientists like her.

    Nearby, an American expat who's married to a Turk pushes her toddler on the swings and describes a book they've been reading at home.

    "It's for 3- to 5-year-olds, and it teaches evolution," says Heather Demir. "It starts off, 'I used to be fish, but then I grew some legs.'"

    The Demir family plans to leave Turkey before their son reaches grade school, in part because of this new curriculum.

    Funny how gayjin posts about Muslims in Turkey, but never posted anything about the nazis, klan members and "alt-rightists" in Charlottesville. But he is an "alt-rightist", so he can't shit on his ideological family.

    Hardly. I was just out of town, snubbing Tokyo CMers.

    A neo-Nazi soldier (a tautology, really) just got arrested for preparing a terrorist attack. Guess how much media coverage a non-Muslim right winger will get and how Maxipad, Pedo Bunny and 3catnazi will condemn neo-Nazis? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017...cion-planning/

    Missouri bill would make it legal for your landlord to evict you, or your employer to fire you, for using birth control or having an abortion. http://feministing.com/2017/06/21/mi...birth-control/

    Um... no, no it doesn't.

    Read the bill.

    What it does is make it legal for your employer to not offer or pay for any insurance that covers abortions*, allows renters to evict abortion clinics (or people performing abortions on the premises of the property*), and allows doctors to refuse to perform abortions*.

    * Unless it is to save the life of the mother.



    Fucking feminist rag overreacting again. Just like a women.









    But I agree, it's a shitty law and fuck the assholes who wrote it and voted for it.

    Shenanigan from reactionaries like Pedo Bunny and the "alt-right". Pushing for the terms "alt-left" and "AntiFa". What a surprise. Creating invisible enemies. Who would have thought Nazis would do that? I'd add "regressive left" to the mix of the little propaganda machine that could. https://qz.com/1083444/analysis-of-5...-left-a-thing/

    The good Republicans of Alabama opted for a Christian theocrat for the US senate. And it's the sharia that is the problem in the Western world.

    It's still pretty horrible. I don't see it passing constitutional muster.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    Meanwhile no nukes have gone off, and its been how many months with pumpkin face as president and yet the soothsayers of doom are still here crying for the end of the world...

    Problem is that general jackass is not only a class skill for him, he also has expertise with it.
