The only way my ex ever squirted with me was by tying her up and pressing the vibrator on her clit long past orgasm. Even that didn't work every time.

The race to the most-hyphenated in diversity orthodoxy is both hilarious and sad. It should be obvious that people of all sorts have important things to contribute, and that by excluding some arbitrarily, you weaken your own organization by screening yourself from qualified and competant people.

However, when you demand dogmatic 'diversity' you do exactly the same thing, except far worse, because by restricting yourself to a small subset of applicants who satisfy multiple hyphenations, you eliminate from your pool an enormous number of people, still highly 'diverse', and with them their talents.

Organizations which enforce "diversity" do so, in general, in every way but thought. Orthodoxy of opinion and politic remains. And with that, they become nothing more than ossified relics.

So, if you could take a pill that would make you gay, you wouldn't either, right? That means your heterosexuality was a choice!

Fuck-noggin.
Feb 10, 2012 Moderate commented on SL Letter of the Day: Life Sentence.
Seems to me Dan's advice is aimed at getting him to ask her for totally unreasonable things so that SHE'LL dump HIM. This "match" is hideous. And reminds me of, hm, EVERY 20 YEAR OLD socially awkward man. He doesn't love her. He is infatuated with her. She doesn't love him, and doesn't have the guts to tell him to fuck off.

But you know what, the pain will be good for both of you, you'll learn, and life will be better for it. Toodleoo.

My first instinct was to shout RAAAAAPE. And that would be my second and third if I believed what this guy apparantly believes about the situation. Why haven't you called the cops?

I saw this over at the Daily Beast, and didn't know what it was about prior to watching it. Made my heart weep. It's time, indeed.

The "Byproduct" hypothesis is just that: a hypothesis. It isn't a theory. To be a theory, a scientific idea must be well understood, well described, describe all the available evidence, and not be contradicted by new findings.

Evolution is a Theory. Gravity is a Theory. Female Orgasm as Evolutionary Byproduct is a hypothesis that is already contradicted by the evidence that female orgasm facilitates sperm-uterine introduction, possibly increasing fertility.

The female orgasm may be an evolutionary byproduct. But we certainly don't know yet. And calling it a theory elevates it to a scientific status to which is has not nearly ascended.

I know, I know, the answers ar 3, 9, and 5, right? No? 0, 0, and 0? Huh. Who'd've thought?
Jan 4, 2011 Moderate commented on Seattle Should Support New York's Ali Forney Center.
The statistics are indeed alarming, but 40% is the high end of an estimate from a source (National Gay and Lesbian Task Force) which cannot be described as scientifically unbiased. I think it does a disservice to apply the numbers this way. The most likely numbers from that report seem to be closer to 26%, which is alarming enough!

If we who care about these issues attempt to constantly present the worst case scenario as if it were the current basis, we risk adopting, through our own words and actions, reputations as number inflators and charlatans. 95% confidence level estimates from unbiased sources are the best to use, and those seem to show an extremely serious problem.

When you have a report that says: "Between 20% and 40%" and you then report it as 40%, you're harming your own cause.
