Re: "Aversion Fads" Discussion

Trolls. Always blaming the people you harass for you being a jerk. Like if they collectively said "meh" you would do something else like stamp collecting or going outside. I never said it was ENTIRELY their fault. Their attitude certainly isn't helping, though. And if one group says &...

Re: "House of Pancakes" Discussion

Star Trek: The Experience is closing? NOOO!!!!! I only got to go once (maybe that was enough), but when I went, Quark's Bar was closed for some private party which was VERY annoying. If they are going to have a private party, have it after hours or something. I was very sad when I heard about this ...

Re: "Aversion Fads" Discussion

Furries are creepy as hell. But that's not why they bother me. It's how darn vocal they are (as mentioned above). Seriously, are there yearly conventions held for any other kind of fetish? (Not counting general "fetish balls") On a quick search, only dominatrix, but I did find that the de...

Re: Deriving Good from the Tragic--Should We?

Yes, these people are exceptions. Movies are always about exceptional people. You might as well complain that The Guns of Navarone should cover the stories of all the soldiers and sailors who weren't commandos, because they comprised the vast majority of the British armed forces. You know, I don't ...

Re: Deriving Good from the Tragic--Should We?

I'm against the idea that tragedy somehow makes you stronger or 'spiritually' richer--perhaps in moderation, but in situations like this, it really doesn't. I agree with this… I'm not denying that people can't find some good things that came out of the Holocaust. ... I'm sure they could do it. My p...

Re: "Important Life Lesson" Discussion

I Like Smalls Butts - "Weird Al" Yankovic With Legs Wide Open - "Weird Al" Yankovic I find this list offensive because some of the names are wrong (the NIN song is "Closer") and the first two songs are definately not "Weird Al". Well, I can't defend myself ab...

Re: "Important Life Lesson" Discussion

'S a funny thing just how unpredictable this forum is. We were expecting at least one post - and early on in the thread, too - to say, "What is this 'any possibility of sex' of which the strip speaks?" Can it be that geeks actually do get sex? Why would Hollywood lie like that? That was m...

Re: "How It Works" Discussion

When a woman acts in a masculine manner, she is told she is unladylike. But she is also told that she is incapable of doing manly things she’s attempting. That she’s acting uppity. That she should know her place. That she’s a witch* You know, I really don't see that. All the tomboys I ever met are ...

I get pwn'd more by my ringtones than my musiclist. Nothing like trying to calm down an irate customer when Yakkity Sax (aka the Benny Hill theme) starts playing because I forgot to put my phone on vibrate. As far as fellatio, you can put your hand on my head, or guide me.. etc. But if I'm doing som...

Re: "How It Works" Discussion

I'm convinced yaoi male = female - breasts + penis. They're simply not shaped like men in the real world. I'm pretty sure they're modeled after popular j-pop males like Gackt and Miyavi. Gackt = http://www.mahamari.com/story/pics/cal2000.jpg Miyavi = http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u176/kyra__ch...

Re: "How It Works" Discussion

If we conclude that the feminine stereotype is so much worse than all others (which I don't agree with), and if we agree that women are the sole recipients of this stereotype (which I also disagree with), then I agree with everything else you're saying. It's these fundamental points I think we disa...

Re: "How It Works" Discussion

here's the front page of cosmopolitan.com. Note the protruding ribs. This is a women's magazine made by women for women. Compare this with anything you find on the website for a men's magazine like maxim.com. Men clearly *do not* like this anorexic look. Women are pushing this idea for their own re...

Re: "How It Works" Discussion

Not so much the discussion of sexual harassment, but the discussion of things which are probably sexual harassment to some people. Like telling a dirty joke, and someone gets offended..that is a discussion of something that needs to be avoided around certain sensitive people. Any kind of physical s...

and said she was going to sue him for sexual harrasment um no. That's not "lawsuit for sexual harassment" material. That's "going to jail for sexual assault" material. Harassment is when someone annoys you. It's only actually illegal if the person is in power over you and doing ...

Re: "How It Works" Discussion

@ DeadCatx2 I'm not sure we are on the same page. Are we talking about women are more sensitive to the discussion of sexual harrasment, or women are more sensitive to the actual act of sexual harrassment? As far as sensitivity, it is very important because it is often used as a way to dismiss people...

5. The odds of my encountering sexual harassment on the job (as a male) are so low as to be negligible. Bullshit. We just don't care nearly as much. Are you serious?
