@15 Exactly. What they did was actually very effective. It showed Americans, in no uncertain terms, the right's lack of morals, empathy and complete lack of human decency. Their message came through loud and clear and the voters showed that we understood exactly where the extremists are coming from.

@34 Using your logic people who are disabled due to preventable accidents or bad habits are choosing to be disabled. And your flawed logic makes sexuality in general a choice. A person could've been gay but they chose to be straight. It's semantics and you're very bad at this game. You can't have it both ways. It's not up to the likes of you to decide who gets a pass and who doesn't. The only choice I see in your argument is the choice you're making to remain willfully ignorant.

The one good thing about the ever so lovely Seattleblues crawling out from under his rock is Kim's absolutely amazing post @20.
Dec 5, 2011 capricorn44 commented on Bullying Victim's Video Goes Viral.
@21 It may be hard for you to grasp but even in this day & age there may be no one to talk to. When I was growing up there was the occasional kid who would step in, only to be bullied themselves for associating with me. I would bet this video was a last resort for Jonah. At least he did something which is more than you appear to be doing. If you've been through this yourself then you should be ashamed to even suggest that it's "emo narcissism bullshit".

Obviously, if you went through this and 'just suck it up' was your solution it didn't work for you. Survival doesn't have to equal bitterness.

@249 You've hit the nail on the head. Reminds me of an exchange between Clive Owen & Jude Law in the movie "Closer":

Law: Everybody wants to be happy.
Owen: Depressives don't. They want to be unhappy to confirm they're depressed. If they were happy they couldn't be depressed anymore. They'd have to go out into the world and live. Which can be depressing.

As someone who spent 30+ years being rejected before getting my act together I can say that things were much, much easier when I was being rejected for something I have very little control over. You get used to it. You know where you stand. There's no validation for for getting your shit together. In fact, there's a bit of rejection from people like Rose Pedal who insist it's your fault they're miserable. Vicious circle that.. With relative happiness comes responsibility. With rejection there's a built in excuse for every woe that befalls you.

I wouldn't for a moment say you don't have a right to your views, but don't make the mistake of thinking them widely shared.

We can safely same about you & your 1955 view of the universe.

Reading the comments on the article I'd like to know when 'explicit' became a bad word. I'd much rather take advice from someone like Dan who actually gives a damn that what he's telling people is based on fact not fantasy and who shows compassion for people who need it. If I recall correctly, Ann Landers, called it 'comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable'. Most religions have that backwards.

@16 EXCUSE ME? How on earth do you get that out of what I wrote?

@1 We can't ignore that celibate by circumstance is not the norm. And there is a norm, a majority if you will. Your average person will more than likely say that they don't know what they'd do if they were never intimately touched by another human being. A tiny portion of the population knows that you can survive, it's very, very hard, but not impossible. But I don't think it's out of line for Dan to acknowledge that's not the norm.
