I don't like penises, yet I have one. I love boobies, does this mean I should have boobies? No, it doesn't.
You're holding yourself back, man. Think of the possibilities.

The death penalty is my issue. I wrote a six page epic paper on the issue and got a 100% from my very conservative English teacher.

I'm not sure which I'd view as the biggest issue personally, the environment or social justice. I suppose they tie together as the social environment we create within the physical environment. I mean, we're pretty fucked without a decent environment to live in, and I don't want to live in any society rife with injustice, marginalisation, and inequity. The situation of the Aborigines here in Australia, for example, nauseates and sickens me beyond words.

If I were in the US, then ending the war would be right up there too.

It's one of the most twisted love stories ever, plus it's got some great effects/camera work for the time period.
this is true.

i've seen like three or four hitchcock movies, and i guess i've seen all the right ones as i think they're all fantastic.

I don't get involved in environmental issues because I hate nature. It bores me and gives me allergies. Fuck.

As far as issues go, there's only two I'd say definitively have a right side and a wrong side: gay rights and the death penalty.

My two cents:

Abortion should be legal, but it shouldn't be used as a birth control method. Some sort of records should be kept, so that if a woman gets more than two or three abortions, she can be counseled about her sexual practices.

I use birth control, but no method is 100% effective. If through some fluke I ended up pregnant, I'd certainly want the option to have an abortion.

I'd also like to add that the morning-after pill (which is not to be confused with the so called 'abortion pill', as the morning-after pill actually prevents conception), should be more easily available, when needed.

And schools should definitely be teaching safe sex practices, rather than that stupid 'abstinence-only' crap which doesn't accomplish a damn thing.

And condoms. Condoms should be fucking everywhere, and everyone should be using them. They should put them in cereal boxes as prizes.

4 of the 6 I've seen are in my Top 50. That's pretty good.

I'm sorry but that is incredibly narrow-minded. Everyone should have a right to be who they feel they are inside. If they feel they are a different sex inside then they should be able to make the transition. It is basic human freedom.

Oh, I've never watched all of The Big Sleep, to be honest. I have been meaning to but since noone seems to know exactly what the hell goes on in it, I get sort of put off by that. But he's a great director and you should definitely check out more of his stuff, he worked in like a million genres too. The Cary Grant movies of his are always good.

I'll maybe check him out then. I was really turned off by The Big Sleep, as a director, that was some poor work.

I understand the plot a little better now that i've seen it twice, but Jesus, the movie doesn't even really get started til about an hour and 15 minutes in

It's quite unnatural. I don't see how it relates to human freedom.

I don't have much opinion on it, but I don't think it relates to gay and lesbian issues, or civil rights issues. I think it's a totally different thing.

Damn straight.

Anybody who thinks abstinence-only education actually works needs to look up from the script for a second and have a look at the data.
