Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

How would you counter the average gun nuts arguments made against Chicago's failed gun laws, and in particular the honest guys are the only ones that will turn in the guns leaving only the criminals armed? According to my brother (responsible gun owner, NRA non-member), one of the problems in Chica...

Re: What did you learn from the movies?

I learned that hot guys in black leather jackets and fast motorcycles are my kryptonite.

Whereupon I entered the downward spiral. Took a long while to come back up.

Also, avoid attack rabbits.

Re: Largest one day drop in U.S. stock market - in history

I kid you not, I have a co-worker who loves Trump and has a "pole dancing instruction" small business. She asked me if I enjoyed the "gift" i.e. tax break from mien fuhrer Trump. I asked, "What are you talking about?" I never saw a dime added to my paycheck, not sure where she got hers from. Strang...

I'm thankful to KathyLauren and justsit for patiently enduring some of the comments that have been made in this and other threads on the topic of gender, and contributing thoughtfully and knowledgeably.

Re: What is a Woman?

Indeed. I would highly recommend procuring some and trying out your lovers hormone profile. A caution though. Testosterone is somewhat addictive and perhaps the best cure for PMS. You may not wish to go back. Since starting testosterone (I'm FTM) 2 1/2 years ago, the only thing I can say I dislike ...

So sorry to hear this, Greg. May your brother heal quickly, and if that is not possible, may he receive an auspicious rebirth. Prayer To Be Reborn in Dewachen: May we take birth in Dewachen.

Re: What is a Man?

I am always in awe of how strong people's opinion are on the sexuality of people they will never have sex with. Particularly of people they don't even fancy. Spending so much time on stuff that is none of your business. If doing X makes you happy I don't have a strong opinion unless you hurt someon...

Re: What is a Man?

Obviously, there is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about gender issues. Words and concepts like sex, gender, and sexual orientation are conflated and used very imprecisely on a topic that really requires careful consideration and specificity in order to have meaningful discussion.

Re: What is a Man?

I'm not sure where you're getting your facts from, but 45%?!? And if it's true, I'd say it IS about societal acceptance, not physical pain and loss of time etc that causes those suicides. As for children, the Los Angeles Children's Hospital has a pretty extensive and somewhat controversial program ...

Re: USA CLOSED FOR BUSINESS

Don't know about that... US economy is booming. Unemployment is at its lowest since 1973. So what? The average citizen isn't doing any better, the jobs are low level service jobs, the only ones profiting from the boom are corporations and the wealthy.

Re: Practicing In Location of Great Tragedy

No personal experience per se, other than at deathbeds (mostly when I worked in hospice) and in graveyards; also, a few sites where someone committed suicide.
