    Chess, reading, writing, gaming, and debate are some of my many hobbies. Mythology, religion, and politics are my major interests.
  1. I don't have a problem with looking into the root of why women are more inclined to worry about their partner's satisfaction at the expense of their own. My own thoughts on the matter is that it's likely a mix of biological and social reasons, What I do have a problem with is automatically assuming or implying that the actions of men are a direct cause as a rule, or that they don't care as a rule. This is an overly simplistic assessment that disregards the motivations of women in favor of having someone else to blame - a trend that becoming annoyingly problematic these days. Perhaps since women assume more physical risk from the repercussions of sex, we may be more instinctively prone to want to please our partners to keep them with us, which may include accepting discomfort during sex, because we wish (subconsciously or otherwise) to prevent them from feeling inadequate or undesired. From an evolutionary standpoint this would make sense because it would decrease the likelihood of that partner choosing a different sexual/life partner. Thoughts?
  2. In that the owner is no-longer anti-gay and doesn't donate to groups that are also anti-gay? No, I don't think that's changed - or at least I haven't heard of it. What I do know is that they still hire gay employees and serve gay patrons, which they did before the bru-ha-ha with Dan Cathy.
  3. Serious as a heart attack. Great movie, too. Genuinely did not see the twist coming.
  4. Long enough to strangle me in my sleep. That is to say, down to my hips, maybe a little lower. Dark brown with just a hint of grey. On another woman - I don't really have a preference - though I don't really care for the buzzed look.
  5. erotica. If you had to live the rest of your natural life in the world of a single book, which world (book) would you choose to live in?
  6. I'm with Jade in that I hope you're doing it for you, and not for someone you haven't met yet. If I were on the hunt for a girlfriend, I would probably invest more in classes or travel - something that would allow me to meet more people and learn more about the world and the people in it. I'd maybe spend a little more time in the gym to, you know, improve stamina and whatnot. In the end, though, what matters is what makes you happy with you. .
  7. It feels like...exhibiting the characteristics and traits of a female homo sapien. e.g. Female humans look and act a certain way, so looking and acting this way is feminine.
  8. I think the author answered her own question on why some women will endure uncomfortable sexual situations - and the answer takes place in the bit about 'faking orgasms'. "This is especially true where sex is concerned. Faking an orgasm achieves all kinds of things: It can encourage the man to finish, which means the pain (if you're having it) can finally stop. It makes him feel good and spares his feelings. If being a good lover means making the other person feel good, then you've excelled on that front too. Total win." The question is, if society expects a measure of female discomfort during sexual encounters, why on earth would a woman feel the need to fake an orgasm? If discomfort or pain was expected, wouldn't they just openly suffer though it? They wouldn't feel the need to pretend to enjoy themselves for the sake of their partner, because it wouldn't matter to their partner whether they did or didn't. " It would be grand if women (and men) were taught to consider a woman's pain abnormal; better still if we understood a woman's discomfort to be reason enough to cut a man's pleasure short." There is one solid point here, but the rest annoys me. Yes, women should absolutely be aware that pain during sex isn't normal. When they experience it they need to learn that it's okay to say so. Hell, it's even okay to say, "Sorry, but this is really uncomfortable - I'm not into it anymore. Let's stop." I know someone somewhere will probably say it isn't that easy - but it really is. I know, because I've done it. I'm willing to bet that, more often than not, people care if their partner is experiencing pain or discomfort during sex, and they won't continue an act that's truly unwanted. She states women are enduring discomfort and faking orgasms to spare the feelings of their partners (presumably because their partners want them to be enjoying themselves - otherwise, why would they care in the first place?), yet in the same breath she's insinuating that pain during sex is considered normal by men. How would they know there's pain in the first place if their partners aren't telling them? The solution to this particular problem lies less with men and more with women. If it hurts, or it isn't comfortable, say so. Be open and honest about what you're feeling. If your partner is the the rare class of asshole that doesn't care, then dump the loser like yesterday's garbage.
  9. Gal Gadot was a very good Wonder Woman.
  10. It's the weirdest thing, but I don't cry when I'm sober. all. Even when loved ones die. At least not genuinely. I recognize that crying is a normal expression of emotion, but fuck if I'm subconsciously willing to do it without a few good slugs in me. I just spent two hours with my eyes leaking. I don't know why I felt the compulsion to do it, but for whatever reason, I drank myself to a point where tears could flow freely. Now the head hurts a little, but the soul feels a little lighter. There's nothing to talk about. No grand declaration of sorrow or stress. I woke up feeling anxious. Worked all day with a feeling of anxiety. Came home, had several drinks, cried my eyes out at made up sob scenarios in my mind. Now I feel better. Am I gonna talk it out with someone? Fuck no. Keep a stiff upper lip, soldier on, and never let them see you cry. Just cuz it's normal and natural, doesn't mean you have to shed that stone cold reputation. Life sucks, Silo. Get right the fuck over it, and make it better, even if it kills you.
  11. I think Wildstar has adopted a Free-To-Play policy. It's a really fun futuristic MMO with a battle system that's focused on telegraphed abilities and heavy movement during battle. It also has ridiculously customizable player housing.
  12. I'm used to seeing circumcised penises, as I live in America and Americans seem to culturally abhor foreskin. Frankly though, I wish my husband was uncircumcised because I feel the whole 'I will never circumcise my son' point would resonate more if he didn't feel like his kid should be circumcised because he was circumcised.
