Aug 28, 2013 gordonburkholder commented on Pat Robertson Is An Insane Old Bigot.
I just called the switchboard, and their media department explains it this way:

The story is that Pat was at some event, many years ago (no details on that). At the event were "trained security officers" who warned him that there are gay activists who were deliberating trying to infect people with the ring cutting thing.

So Pat is not the source of the bullshit. He is just - repeating - some bullshit that SOMEONE said.

That someone would think that is worth sharing on the air to millions...beyond me.

fuck the cute 21 y.o. guy. he should be $40 poorer, not her.

yes, this happens. has happened to me, more than once (more than twice, actually).

the condom was VERY deep inside, because I kept pushing it in deeper without realizing it…basically up against the cervix. I had to get it with my finger - which was hard to do.

I believe the muscles part - I was with someone who had a rowing scholarship - amazingly strong woman, and that was the first time it happened.

and after long enough, no, I can't always tell if there is a condom or not.

whenever it happened, it cost me $40 and was priceless in terms of relief.

That's $120 well spent.

people.

it is up to the guy to CHECK the fucking condom.

(Side note - my friend met her husband backpacking in Europe. That was 12 years ago. They have two kids now and a house.)

A friend of mine - who loves artisan soap - was having a bad week. To cheer her up, I dropped by a new, very expensive, very artisan soap shop in Philadelphia (I'm a straight male).

After I figured out that the salesperson and I grew up in the same area (it was her accent that gave it away), we had a nice conversation about music and obscure bands from back home.

It seemed that she liked talking to me, but after all, she wanted to sell soap, and she probably had someone in her life, and after all, I'm not the kind of guy to ask strangers out.

So I left.

Walking down the street, I realized I wanted to talk to her more, and I would probably never see her again otherwise.

I turned around, took a deep breath, walked back into the store, and gave her my number and suggested that we hang out again.

She called the next day, and things went very well after that…

OVARY UP!

A suggestion for you, Dan: Fairmount Bagels in Montreal.

Or...any bagel shop in Montreal, probably.

Whole new world of bagels. If you haven't had a good Montreal-style bagel, you are missing the real bagel experience.

Just curious. Does anyone think this might be a troll letter? It seems almost a bit too dumb.

how about you pay for her therapy?

don't lash out at your daughter because you a douche and you suck at cheating.

when I was in my early 20s, my dad called me and told me that he had been cheating on my mom for a year and change, and they were divorcing, and he was going to go see the new woman in a few days.

I was really upset, and I had some really crazy ideas. thankfully I was old enough to filter them.

your daughter is 15 and hasn't developed those filters yet. don't punish her for that, otherwise you will go down as being the worst dad in the world, two times over.

signed. having been to uganda, I will say that it is frightful how much time people spend talking about God compared to the amount of time they spend talking about how to improve their country.

folks, remember that there are people who are just hearing about Dan and the idea of DTMA. I started listening to Dan in 2008 (I could never stand the column, but I love the podcast), and now I can usually predict what Dan is going to say, but for some people, this way of looking at relationships from a sex-positive point of view (ie. sex is an issue worth dumping someone over) is very new.
