@ 16 - I think you're overestimating the intelligence of men who make catcalls. Their logic is: it worked for that guy in the Penthouse letters, why wouldn't if work for me?

As a gay man who used to be on various dating/hookups sites (that's before apps came along), I'd say about 1 in 50 guys who contacted me actually fit the description I gave of the kind of guy I was looking for. So it's not necessarily about power dynamics; they do the same thing whether they're straight or gay. It's more that they figure it's a numbers game, and if they try with everyone, they might get some action sometimes.

In other words: there's a lot of desperate people in this world.

@ 37 - Many people thought that about W.

@ 36 - Actually, the meaning of "least worst option" is crystal clear and by no means utterly nonsensical.

Best is the superlative of good, so by using "best option", you are stating that it's a good one. Which it isn't.

The "least worst" indicates that the option is not considered good at all, but is the one that will do less harm. Which it is.

@ 17 - How you managed to make that up is a mistery. Reading comprehension fail.

@ 72 - Considering the facts that the US as proclaimed itself the leader of the free world and that it bullies its "allies" into embarking on illegal and illegitimate wars, EVERYONE IN THE WORLD should be entitled to voice their opinion about who you choose for president.

And remember your very own first amendment before you try to shut people up again.

@ 64 - Perhaps, indeed. I remember my mom telling me about this custom going as far back as the 50s (her best friend in those days was gay).

@ 60 - I guess it depends on where you were at the time, but as far as I can remember, the Clone Moustache and the One Earring where concurrent. And I believe, from what older gays told me, that the OE even predates the CM, though it had a much longer run.

@ 64 - That's what politicians do. All of them.

You talk about purity? Don't be so naive. It's rather unbecoming to anyone of voting age.

@ 9 - I hope it was for them. Nothing worse than feeling that guilty for a so-so fuck.

@ 51 - "Many of us knew those positions were fucked up and wrong so why did she not know?"

What makes you think she didn't? She's a politician. Doesn't that say it all?

But so is Sanders, and all those who think he's somehow purer because he was an independent all those years should remind themselves that he is now a member of the Democratic party: a thoroughly calculated move. Typical of a politician.

Just saying.
