Not sure how I feel about the idea of paying per kilo, but I do like the idea of making the extra-wide people buy the extra seat. Or at least making them upgrade to first class.
I'm juuuust too big to fit into a seat comfortably, and consequently, I don't fly much. I always put the armrest to keep myself from oozing into the neighboring seat when I do fly, though.
commented on "Why does he have boobs?"
I often encounter people whose gender I can't tell. I wish it WAS ok to just ask if you're confused (and I REALLY wish we had gender-neutral pronouns in this language!)
I was mistaken for a man once. I thought it was hilarious.
drunk guy 1: "Dude, hey, dude!"
drunk guy 2: "Dude, that's a chick!"
Me: walks away, laughing.
I guess it probably doesn't seem very funny after several times of it, but it sounds to me like the blog poster is expecting people to be psychic. And since she KNOWS that people are confused, and is afraid of tying up the scanner, maybe she should actually TELL them before she goes in that she's female? Make everything go more smoothly.

The way I see it, if guys I don't know are checking me out and thinking naughty thoughts (whether there's a fetish involved or not), it would be creepy as all hell if I knew about it, and not at all if I don't know. Ignorance is bliss in this case. As long as the women don't know what he's doing, I really don't see them as victims.
commented on Secretary of Defense Lifts Ban on Women in Combat
@18: I think the thought is generally that we (women) have less muscle fibers, so sure, we can get just as strong as the guys, but we have to work harder at it.
I'm thrilled that women are allowed to serve in combat finally. It's about damned time. I do agree with 15-16 that we should be treated equally and the same should be expected of us (although his points seemed a bit...full of vitriol...)
commented on SL Letter of the Day: Skin-to-Skin Contact
@9: Yes, I totally agree. For me, online is a place to exchange emails so you can set up a meeting place/time, basically. The last thing I want to do is get into a months-long email exchange before I meet the person. It's too easy to edit your personality via texting/emailing.

@20 I second that. It's all very beautiful, but I also want to see wedding photos of Dan and Terry.

I don't get why it's worth the argument to say it's NOT an orientation. Regardless of how you or I feel (I don't feel informed enough to have an opinion), it's clear there are a lot of people who identify as poly or D/s, so why offend those people by arguing that theirs isn't a legit orientation?
