Amidst the chaos, Alastair Ehn struck down his opponent with his cane and released a warning snarl at his pursuers. The armored men, startled by his animalistic expression, flinched – and that was all the time the crippled king needed.
Briefly flicking liquid scarlet from his sword, Alastair returned the blade to his cane and swiftly limped down the hall, only one person on his mind. The ominous moans of his home echoed around him, becoming louder and louder with each deafening, explosive shell that impacted against its ancient walls. A high-pitched whistling demanded his attention, and Alastair swiftly ducked down against the side of the wide hall, bringing his tattered cloak over him. Not a second later, the entire world seemed to jump. Light and flame erupted behind him, fragmented stone and debris

She said she wrote the truth
She was a shy girl, a dying girl
Just a wasting youth
She wrote all kinds of things for me
Poetry and prose
And on the day of her lonesome death
I'd given her a rose
She'd given me her journal
A thing of mystery
She said to open with care
Her tales of misery
I had yet to open her secret book
Until a piece of paper began to float
From the back cover of her life's story
Oh, look, I said, a note
I picked the paper from the ground
A scrap from my best friend
And silently looked at the scribbled words
I cried and read, "the end"

Ever since I was three, I knew my parents weren’t normal parents and my family wasn’t a regular family. My parents taught me things a three year old would never think of knowing. They taught me the life of hiding, secrecy, and lies. The life of a spy.
When I was four I learned how to open a safe and how to disarm some of the top security systems. Then when I was six my dad brought home a CIA code that he taught me how to crack. By the time I was ten I mastered 9 different languages.
I always went to a normal school until the eighth grade when my parents transferred me to a specialized boarding school in Springfield, Massachusetts, called The Academy of the Fine, for people just like me. Okay, well, only half of the school was. This school was designed for onl

Women get away with rape because women are considered weak.
Women get away with rape because they're considered fragile. When someone is considered fragile, that means they have all the protection. Men on the other hand are considered tough. That has both, benefits and downsides. The same applies to being considered weak. I've brought it up many times, and I'll bring it up again...
Being considered fragile is easier than being considered weak. It's like a kid complaining about not being able to go to work.
If you're anti-feminist, you're a sexist.
Most people who identify as a feminist have done so many things that put blemishes, in the feminist movement. When a certain movement has too many blemishes, they will no longer be taken seriously. In first world countries, feminists have

Reasons Why I Dislike FeministsCurrently, the hashtag “Women Against Feminism” has been trending on social media, and it has created quite the on-line feminist backlash.

The Boy Who Had None
In a small country, in a small town, there lived a boy known to all and avoided by most. Though blind and small, weak and alone, everyone feared his presence. For the boy had a gift, or a curse as they would call it, to see secrets best left unheard.
Instead of a face to remember a person the boy could see their hearts. Instead of seeing the Baker, plump and round, the boy saw his secret all too clearly.
“He cheats on his wife.” The boy said aloud when coming face to face with the Baker.
“He lies!” The man shouted, but all knew better. For everyone knew what this boy said was true. No one could deny that secrets he did see.
“She steals from her customers.” Is how he referred to the Seamstress.
“He likes men.” He greeted the Stable boy.
Everyone knew that the boy only spoke truths, no matter the crime, no matter the humiliation; no one could deny their secre

Alastair gritted his teeth. The castle’s warning groans had become deafening by this point, and if the earlier earthquake was any indication, one of the towers had already fallen. Regardless, the king determinedly proceeded onward.
“Your Grace,” stressed Xenos, determined to win Alastair over, “even if you are half-draconic, you’re still half-human. If someone shoots you up enough or the castle collapses, it’ll be bad news!”
Alastair scowled. ‘I will not leave her behind.’
“And if she’s already been taken?”
‘They enemy has not retreated. They do not have her.’

Women are not oppressed.
I have said in the past that women are not oppressed in 1st World Countries. And no, not being able to get an abortion is not a form of oppression.
Most of women's problems are actually gender neutral.
Body Shaming? Being seen as weak? That's gender neutral. Men are expected to muscular by women. Women are expected to be curvy or skinny by men. And when it does occur, it's usually girls doing it to each other. So this is not really a valid reason for the movement to be needed.
And the last time I checked, being seen as weak is in fact, easier than being seen as tough.
Men dont have all the power and privilege.
Actually women have privilege. See this: http://judgybitch.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/feeemaleprivilege-2.jpg
In addition, women have power, so this makes the "you need power for privilege" excuse sound silly. Here are all the things that women don't have to face:

2. The fossil record has holes in it. Dinosaur and humans footprints were found side-by-side in Arizona and Turkmenistan. In Uzbekistan, 86 consecutive hoof prints of horses were found in rocks dating back to the dinosaurs. Petrified trees in Arizona's petrified forest have fossilized nests of bees and cocoons of wasps. Those forests are reputedly 220 million years old, while bees (and flowering plants which bees require) supposedly evolved almost 100 million years later.
3. No macro variations (speciation) in evolution have ever been observed. Micro evolution is species adaptations, and it's not the same as macro. Adjusting to the climate is very, very different than changing from species to another.

Does abortion "liberate" women and free them from "male oppression?" Does it give
them "control" over their bodies and lives as some feminists promise? Or, has abortion hurt
women, bringing them pain, shame, guilt and regrets? They say that having an abortion is one of
the hardest things that a woman can ever do. If it is so hard and has so much guilt piled with it the
morality of it must be questionable. If there is need for guilt, for so willingly disposing of their
problem, then they must, themselves question its goodness. Its goodness, There is none. As
Mother Teresa said, "The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion, which is war against the
child. The mother doesn't learn to love, but kills to solve her own problems. Any country that
accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want."
The means of abortion are violent; indeed the means of destroying life are as brutal and disgusting
as ever. There are special t
