Re: “Fighting Abuse

Emerge is one of the most hateful organizations out there. Not only do they deny the existence of the majority of male victims of domestic violence but when a male victim is referred to their services they treat him as though he is a perpetrator.

There is nothing like seeking help from a place like Emerge as a victim and still in pain from your injuries, and being treated as though you are perpetrator. The representative from emerge outright lies because Centers for Disease Control studies prove that men are a large percentage of victims. Women are actually more likely to initiate domestic violence and more likely to use a weapon. Yet they make up only 3% of domestic violence convictions.

The author clearly has a large store of hatred towards male victims that she would deny the existence of most of them. The fact that she is either too dishonest or too incompetent to report factually on this subject when the facts are so easily obtained shows that she should not have a job with Tucson Weekly. I guess if you have the correct politics Tucson Weekly is perfectly willing to ignore a lot of flaws in your character and ability.

Re: “Demand Letter

These are special snowflake social justice "warriors" who find EVERYTHING sexist, EVERYTHING flavor-of-the-day-phobic, EVERYTHING racist, when it is not. This is the most priviledged generation, and still not happy. If these special snowflakes can't handle such a safe learning environment as the UofA (which is EXTREMELY easy on these kids), then they are not capable of benefiting from university education and need to get fast food jobs. Kat Hermanson needs to stop taking up space at the UofA that a student capable of learning, with an open mind, could constructively use.
FYI homophobia ACTUALLY means fear of that which is the same as yourself. Stop using it wrong special snowflakes.

Re: “Divided

Tucson city council ALWAYS rubber-stamps what developers wants, even if it's to give away traffic bearing streets, like they did to 5th avenue so "the district" apartments could be built. It's insane how stupid and greedy these people are.
Fry's doesn't need a new location there on houghton! They already have a store on the next major street west, 22nd and Harrison!

Re: “Deported Father

Cesar IS a criminal who came here illegally and never took the effort to become legal IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT HE HAD 13 YEARS TO DO SO! All he ever had to do was go back across the border to Mexico, fill out the paperwork like he never left, and wait his turn like the millions who have come here legally before him.

This man is the victim of his own choices, and his son pays the price of his laziness and selfishness. He's a terrible father because he never did what he needed to do to ensure that he wouldn't be separated from his family.

I repeat, the only thing that this man is the victim of, is his own choices.

Re: “Solution Wanted

Having a sex change operation is elective and cosmetic surgery. After care is thus, equally elective. Tax dollars should never pay for someone else's CHOICE. It's not discrimination to claim that not covering an elective procedure and the associated after care shouldn't be covered. It IS unfair to make taxpayers, you and I, foot the bill. Check your priviledge.

Re: “Should People Be Upset by a Burrito Joint Called "Illegal Pete's"?

I like how all the jobless jerkwads are disliking EVERY logical post that supports Illegal Pete's. BTW I took my friends there last night simply because of the protestors, our bill was nearly $100 because we were a large group. The place is great and the employees were awesome! The protesters were jackass bullies though, and I really was wishing the cops would actually do their job and move them from obstructing access. TPD, why wouldn't you do your jobs? This is harassment under state law.

Re: “Protesters Swarm Mexican Restaurant Illegal Pete's Opening Night: 'Racists Enter Here' (SLIDESHOW)

If you're not here legally, you should not get in-state tuition. Period. But that's beside the point. These protesters are choosing to see offense in something that was not offensive. They are choosing, because they are a bunch of cowardly children of priviledge, to attack a family business whose owner has worked hard to get where he's at, when they've never worked hard a day in their lives.
Honestly, they're disgusting, each and every one of those protesters there, they only make the world a worse place by their actions, I wish they would all go away forever. Every single one of them should be expelled from school and jailed for criminally harassing a local business and its patrons.
