"We all know Dan hates fatties."

Not all of us. No.

There are some of us who think this is a transparently self-serving accusation made by overweight and obese people desperate to protect the delicate web of denial they have woven for themselves.

15 and 11 are gentle reminders to Dan that, if he even so much as suggests that overweight and obesity have some fairly dangerous health risks associated with them, there will come a typing of fury upon his inbox that will shut down his servers from the edge of night on.

Take heed, Mr. Cockmucher. Take heed.

@11 That caller was yelling at Dan for being a coward. He was chastising Dan for cowing to the obese people who want him to shut up about the obesity epidemic.

The obesity epidemic is a real thing. It is an actual problem. It is a major issue in the U.S.

I don't want to make anybody feel bad about themselves but I also worry about the obesity epidemic. Because it is worrisome.

There is your insecurity on one hand and there is loss of life on the other. Do you see how, ultimately, that isn't much of a dilemma?

Dan is regularly punished for talking about a far reaching, fast spreading, life ending, life ruining problem that our nation faces. Why? Because it makes some people feel insecure. Think about that. What exactly is the metric for wimpy behavior, here?

I see a lack of courage, just not where you do.

@113

"Giving head (or doing anything sexual for that matter) isn't about having a repertoire of secret tricks"

Except for the secret part, yes it is. I didn't say anything was secret or magical and it wasn't even kung fu.

I have a repertoire that I learned. I was taught what to do from female friends. I read about techniques online.

I feel like your attitude is the problem. Guys feel like they should be able to figure it out for themselves and it's a failure on their part if they don't.

Didn't happen in class. It's like a family. You socialize, you have dinner together fairly often. Your sigung is your teacher's teacher so he can be very old and wise and knowleagable.

Apparently, my husband's would spend entire dinners talking about exactly how to get a woman off.

@101 "Lick...over the entire vulva"

QED

Is this a preference of mine?

Are there women who want this?

@40 That is exactly what I was thinking. I have only ever been with one guy who knew how to do it.

When I say, "knew how to do it" I'm not talking about knowing some special technique. I mean, "knew that the tongue goes on the clitoris". OR "could locate the clitoris."

That whole "make love not porn" is most important in this area, I think. Every guy I was with gave me head the way they do in porns. They just lick all around and up inside.

Every time I tried to tell them they were doing it wrong, they never tried again. I have Asperger's. I may have seemed mean or something.

Then I met a guy who studied kung fu and his sigung was obsessed with cunnilingus and taught him all sorts of special techniques. It was like I had spend my whole life eating brown rice and steamed veg then somebody took me to the best restaurant in Paris.

I married that guy.

I'm going to chalk it up to the Vicodin that Dan didn't get insecure about dating himself with a Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom reference.

@101 "The right answer is I remind you of your molestation by an older male relative."

You like to find women who were sexually abused and bring it up, repeatedly. That is your thing. Sometimes, maybe because you get self-conscious about it, you put a lot of effort into justifying it. You'll explain why you find it a moral imperative to mention that the person you're talking to was raped. Sometimes you do it as a complete non-sequitur, like you're continuing a conversation you were having in your mind, like here.

It is super creepy, either way.

@104 You think that is what I am proposing? If somebody believes in religion, you should tell them that religion is ridiculous every time you see them? That is what you understood my point to be?

Really?

You are so off base, I wonder if it's intentional. Hell, why not go further? Why not claim that I'm advocating setting up an automated call system that calls believers every night after dinner to remind them that I think their beliefs are ridiculous?

Or we can be honest about the exact situation we're discussing, here.

If the subject of religion comes up on a column of a known atheist, other atheist get to express their thoughts about religion clearly and honestly in the comment section. We are going to say exactly what we think about religion.

You are welcome to disagree. You are welcome to tell us exactly why you think we are wrong about it. You are similarly welcome to just ignore us.

But we aren't going to censor ourselves to help others protect their seemingly delicate illusions about the universe. Please stop asking. No can do.
