Re: It's all about "sex"

Then why.... why for the love of God do they STILL plan to give that man a vote??? Can't your friends see through his charade? Do you really think he carries the so called "holy spirit" in his heart? Do you really think he gives a rats ass about abortions? Do you think he really cares about your Go...

Re: It's all about "sex"

Trump’s a cretin. I said before. The GOP is better than this. The USA is better than this Even my friends who voted for him - and will likely vote for him again - his juvenile tweets are an embarrassment, and without exception they have all expressed the wish that someone would take his phone away ...

Re: New Court Apparel

I found the source of that outfit. It's the least silly of the collection. Apparently codpieces are in again.

Re: Manly dresses, girly dresses

Steve, "Joan of Arcadia" was a comedy/drama ("dramedy"?) a decade or two ago with the premise that God decided to manifest itself to an insecure teenager in high school, taking the George Burns route of appearing as a variety of generic, nonthreatening human beings. You might bounce from one scene i...

Re: A Meaty Question to our American Friends

She-who-must-be-obeyed and I have just about given up on supermarket meat, even before the idiotic panic buying of meat started last month. Instead we drive out to the country where we can buy directly from local farms whenever possible. It means buying a couple hundred pounds of meat in one go and ...

Re: Has the attention on transgendered individuals helped us?

I also see that he's reversed the health protections for transgender individuals in your country. So one step forward, one step backward. Sinned, I introduced that topic a few days ago when it was announced. There seems to be some uncertainty over just how much damage Trump did with that ruling. My...

Manly dresses, girly dresses

I've been watching old DVDs of "Joan of Arcadia" this week, and several of the episodes feature flashbacks to the wreck that paralyzed her brother. He remembers arguing with his drunk friend over taking the keys and driving, but drunk friend wouldn't hear of it. He mocked Kevin's concern, to the poi...

Re: It's all about "sex"

Thanks, Salt and CR. It sounds like that particular case was a unique aberration on the part of a rogue EMT crew, not standard practice. It's also worth noting that the original incident occurred in... what, '95? So even if that attitude was more prevalent back then, the subsequent lawsuit and 25 ye...

Re: It's all about "sex"

Followup: A friend-of-the-friend in question finally provided a concrete example, which is indeed horrific. Regardless of one's personal, religious, psychological, or medical opinions about transgender issues this is appalling and should not be legal under any circumstances, ever. TL;DR taken straig...

It's all about "sex"

I can't make any headway discussing the Trump administration's reversal of Obama's transgender health anti-discrimination policy . Everyone is so angry (one way or the other), any attempt at discussing the facts is met with accusations and ad hominem attacks from all sides. One transman friend is co...

Re: Protests

Most of the calls to defund the police are not total defunding. The idea is that many things that the police approach in a violent way could be done in other ways. The people advocating for that should be clearer in their messaging, then. If we (the general public) only see "defund the police", it ...

Really? I swear, when I wrote that it seemed like it was in the "advocacy" forum. If I was mistaken, I withdraw my objection! And I'll make an appointment with my optometrist to get new glasses :oops:

I am not sure it is wise opening this political can of worms in this particular forum as everyone will have their own views, and some will be strong views that are likely to cause offence and resentment.
Yes! Move this to the off-topic forum, please.

Re: Summertime, and the clothing is easy

Understood, Tom. Unfortunately, I do not. EVER. post information that can identify me - my face, my full name, my birthdate, my city - anywhere I don't have control over the audience.
