@mydriasis:
Why would one have to be or have been a sex worker to have expertise on the topic?

Am I the only one who thinks that men physically defending women (either by beating up the offenders, or by threatinenging violence, or by just being physically intimidating) are part of the problem? (I am excluding cases where the situation is so that the only possible intervention is a physical one.)

If I am harassed or insulted, I am grateful for anyone who takes my side without thinking that the situation demands threatening or exacting physical violence. A man stepping up and threatening another man for cat-calling, just annoys me, because he perpetuates the notion that a strong men has to protect those fragile women.

Dear Mr vennominon,
the French use Euros (but display the price in Euros and Francs).

@ nocute:
Somewhere above, you mentioned that you find it sad that people nowadays want to be asked before the first kiss, and consider it otherwise sexual assault.
In my opinion, being asked (or asking myself) is hot. Nothing to be sad about.
Considering every unwanted kiss an assault is silly. As long as it is stopped as soon as I communicate a clear "no!", it's unpleasant but nothing else.

Am I the only one who doesn't think that cherry red lips are a turn-off, not sensuous, esp. in men?

"Usually former military or cops"
Not according to my brother who got really irate when he was out hunting with a group, and the Navy guy endangered everyone's lives (including his son's) because he just didn't observe basic gun safety rules.

@sissoucat:
Touché!
However, I have to admit regarding cleanliness, bar and restaurant toilets in Russia and France are on par, and that isn't a compliment to either side.

I don't think it is only the prevalence of guns in the US that leads to the high homicide rate (yes, there is lots of violent crime in Europe as well, but our murder rates are way lower than American murder rates). If crime was just caused by the guns available, Switzerland and Canada would have much higher murder rates.

The problem is American culture. Violence and vigilantism as problem-solving strategies are much more accepted than in civilised countries, even among so-called "liberals".

@46:
Sitting down to pee wouldn't be so disgusting if the other people were also sitting down. It is the disgusted women who somehow crouch or squat or stand or whatever while peeing who mess up the toilet seats.

IPJ @23:
Since it takes 3 months for red blood cells to mature, beef and spinach the week after your menstruation won't do much good. If you are really anemic due to menstruation, you should be eating high-in-iron foods regularly.

I missed some positive connotations regarding menstruation. I've bled through tampons and pads, was caught unawares by my period in my sister's house (wouldn't be remarkable if I hadn't been standing there chatting to my BIL in my underwear before noticing that blood was running down my leg) but I don't mind my period usually. And for women with chronic constipation, the looser stools during a period are a welcome relief.
My former flatmate got pretty bad periods physically, but mentally she was in a very Zen place during her periods.
