Aug 31 LML commented on Shut Up About Trigger Warnings....
We also need to call out the conservatives who throw up their own trigger warnings at being exposed to any idea that does not come from THEIR version of the Bible. Remember the student who complained about being forced to read about "anti-Christian" lesbianism in Funhouse? As a former Political Science instructor (about 12 years ago), I remember all the grief I got when I discussed religion as a social phenomenon. How dare I suggest that God might not exist or that other religions might be equally valid?

And what about all those supposedly anti-PC conservatives who can't have their beliefs bruised by learning about evolution in a biology class???

@5 No, I am not missing out. My wife (then girlfriend) tried to get me to eat seafood for several years. She was convinced that I just hadn't had good seafood and I must really like it, even though I "did not know" that I liked it. The result was simple: I still hated seafood every time I tried it. To my palate, all seafood tastes like something that has spoiled. YUCK!

Dan should have added that asexuality should not be viewed as the result of a trauma anymore than the old standard that homosexuals must have been abused--why else would they be gay? Asexual could mean, for example, that she naturally has an extremely low libido.

Also, "she'll miss out." On what, though? On something she is not interested in? As a straight guy, you can tell me I am missing out on a lot of dick. But I don't want that, so missing out on it is not a bad thing. I hate seafood, so "missing out" on salmon, lobster, etc. is actually a great thing in my book! I imagine that an asexual who goes along with sex and pretends to like it in order to conform must find it either unpleasant or, at the very least, boring. So this girl would not be "missing out" if she really is asexual.

This could work, but only in a porn movie.

Years ago, a tall friend of mine in college said she could not date shorter men because she "would look like a moose." In other words, it might not be that they are not attracted to short men or don't find them sexually appealing. It may be that they are being self-conscious because society puts them down for "looking masculine" because they are tall. The solution--stand next to someone taller than you.

Oh, and you all laughed at Sara Palin. If only she had been elected, the Canadians would never have invaded the U.S. and annexed Washington State! Hurry and elect Sara before the dirty red maple-swillers get ahold of Oregon!
