C'mon, people, it's perfectly natural for his weight gain to impact her attraction. How many letters does Dan get from men who are no longer attracted to their wives after they gain weight, with whom he sympathizes? Huge double standard here. This letter makes it sound like women need to stay thin so their husbands will want to fuck them, but the opposite doesn't hold true. I'm a woman who is normally as horny as a 15 year old boy, but when my ex gained 50 pounds I lost all interest in sex with him. He was constantly moaning about how he was chubby and needed to lose weight, expecting sympathy and validation from me, and then would go scarf a cheeseburger and throw back a 6 pack. Then he had the audacity to tell me that this shouldn't matter to me because "women don't care about looks." His attitude was as much of a turnoff as the weight. Even when he lost weight it was too late-I was simply no longer attracted to him and had to force myself to have sex with him-once a week seemed extravagant to me. I was afraid my libido was permanently broken until my first date after we broke up. Then I realized it was just him and that I was back in business. Now I'm with a fit guy who drives me out of my mind and we fuck like bunnies. So geez, people, give the woman a break--she's not attracted to her husband anymore because he got fat, and she's come up with this proposal because nothing else has worked and she's desperate.

commented on SLLOTD: Anger Mismanagement Issues
I could have written this letter 10 years ago. Fiance with anger management problems, yelling at and around me, losing it over nothing, frequent public humiliation, refusal to go to therapy. It's emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, pure and simple, and you're not seeing it because you're too involved. Thankfully, I came to my senses before I married the dude. It sucked, it was the hardest thing I've ever done, but it was also the best thing I've ever done. Get out. Now.

@6--you're missing the point. Lot refused to give up his angel-in-disguise visitor to the queer mob who wanted a piece of his ass, because homosexuality is wrong. Instead, he offered his virgin daughters to be gang-raped, because that's much LESS sinful. Obviously. And don't forget, it was the DAUGHTERS who got daddykins drunk so it wasn't his fault that he knocked them both up. Oh, yeah, and let's not forget that his wife was an evil whore who got turned into a pillar of salt (??) because she dared to take a peek at the fire and brimstone destroying her home. Poor Lot was actually a stand-up guy. Geez, keep up. It says so right on the Lot Project website:
"The LOT Project is so named because Lot represents one who was delivered from the judgment of God upon those who practiced homosexual sin. Lot was not such a man himself. Scripture declares that Lot was a righteous man living in an unrighteous environment. As such he was grievously distressed by the lifestyle of the men around him in the city of Sodom and Gomorrah. (2 Peter 2:7)".
@34 and 54--of course there is no translation error. They're using the KJV, straight from the mouth of god. It says so on the website:
"Due to the inconsistency of many modern Bible versions in translating passages, and in light of the fact that the King James Version was translated at a time when political correctness was not an issue, we will confine ourselves to the KJV exclusively."
What a pile of bullshit.

commented on The Basket Case for Marriage
"The argument that same-sex marriage cannot be justified without also, in principle, justifying polygamy and polyamory infuriates many advocates of the former. There is, however, no good answer to the charge; and the arguments and especially the rhetoric of same-sex marriage proponents clearly apply with equal force to polygamy and polyamory."

Goddamn. I am a recovering evangelical, and for years have been phrasing rebuttals in my head to fucked up rhetoric used to justify denying civil rights to people of whom they don't approve--using their own logic against them--and I thought this angle was brilliant. It doesn't surprise me that it's defeated, but it underlines the hypocrisy at work.

@52--you're absolutely right, and I'd reiterate to SHIT to loosen up a bit about sex. You don't want to find you're not compatible with someone sexually until after you're emotionally involved. I made this mistake and it turned out the guy was impotent and unwilling to do anything about it. So in the meantime get yourself a vibrator, listen to all the people urging you to get out and be good to YOURSELF and stop focusing on whether you find someone or not. I forget which commenter said it, but a man should be the icing on the cake, not the cake itself.
