@15 where did you get the "I, Anon put herself in a situation with people she should have had at least a smidgen of clue that she couldn't trust" from?

As it seems to be the basis of your argument, I think it's fair to challenge you to demonstrate that is a reasonable assumption.

Btw, if you think that everyone that disagrees with you is a hater then you really need to develop some nuance to your world-view.
I for one don't give a shit about you one way or another ;-)

sounds like a case where less malt liquor might have been advisable eh Ziff?

The key question is: does the definition of rape include when the recipient says "no" in a variety of forms, is repeatedly ignored but eventually allows the act to take place when they *could* have prevented it?

I use *could* because this is the tricky point. Is Anon indicating that she lacked the self esteem/confidence to push him off or is she now blaming herself for becoming overpowered? - But how much difference does it really make? Haven't women been raped in this way since ... always, pressurised, manipulated, intimidated?

The "take more responsibility" stance seems similar to the age old advice to kids against bullying where one should "stand up for yourself" and "fight back" ... handy to know if you aren't already terrified. So, yes, it does sound like victim blaming to me.

RR. Even if you can pull back your foreskin (if you have one) when you masturbate it can be quite tight the first few times you have penetrative sex (anal or vaginal).
You can even tear the foreskin in such circumstances - all the more reason for wearing condoms.
Search for foreskin stretching techniques on-line, if you do have a tight one you will be glad you took the time to make it more flexible when you were on your own.
One good way of varying your masturbation technique is to use the other hand (e.g. left hand if you are right handed) a different side of the brain is doing it and tends to have a different style.

1. I don't see that this supports or contradicts the ECDAMAAF meme, this isn't the action of a rational mind. Period. If he didn't own a gun he could have obtained one, or stabbed his wife and children then suffocated himself like my english teacher did 35 years ago. It is just plain sad.

2. You have had your opportunity to air your feelings of wrongedness and defend yourself from the court of angry young trans person. We know that this furore was really about 'it' and not about you, so now be the older, wiser and more balanced party and PLEASE let the itgate saga go?

1. no, not trolling - seems ironic with that accusation coming from a non-registered commenter ;-) I always wonder how people with a different point of view automatically get demonised as trolls, is contradiction of your world view so threatening?

2. So, I am bullshitting the entire world by describing myself as gay when my preference is for guys but the occasional woman slips in (or vice versa)? - Well I guess it depends on how you come to understand the term gay.
I've always taken it to mean "not willing to conform with other people's preconceptions of whom I should love and fuck".
Moreover, how come it seems necessary for people to qualify the word - e.g. "exclusively gay", "mostly gay", "totally gay", etc. shouldn't "gay" be enough?

Maybe I am missing something but I never heard Tom use the B word - just said that he fancies girls still (I do, sleep with them occasionally, and I still tend to use 'gay' to self identify).

When he later uses the term 'gay' it isn't clear whether that means 'exclusively same sex partners from now on'.

Do we lose the right to use that word if we EVER sleep with someone of the opposite sex again?

I'll have to turn my card in I guess ..

Getting a feeling that outsourcing won't be on the table - effectively opening the relationship for an apparently vanilla person seems unlikely.

They did miss the red eyes, rings around said eyes, pale yellow blotchy complexion, incessant giggling and grunge music.

I still find some fingers bony and uncomfortable after 30 years at it. Your boyfriend needs to practise on himself until he gets what it feels like.
