I really appreciated this article Charles. Thank you for writing it!

You need to discuss this with the director/manager of your hotline. There should be a policy in place for how to handle these calls and you should already have been trained in how to handle them. I'm a little surprised you weren't which makes me doubt the authenticity of this letter. While there is no judgment for what this individual is into sexually/kink/etc, a suicide/crisis line is not the place to explore kinks or masturbate. There are plenty of other avenues for that, and you are not being un-supportive by quickly screening and getting these callers off the line so it is available for individuals who actually are in crisis.

*or anyone who is anything other than white and male, for that matter.

@6 I did "read the fucking article" and nowhere in it is there a discussion of restaurants prohibiting white males, so I'm not even going to comment. As for the quote you provide, the supreme court just ruled in favor of affirmative action practices with the UT case, and this is pretty similar. You don't have an argument that anyone but Trump and his Trumpies would support. I am a white male. I have never, and will never be discriminated against in any way that even approaches what most non-white males will face on a daily basis. It's called white male privilege, and it exists.

@1, no, they are saying that landlords can't give special deals to tech workers, starbucks corporate, etc. This is because by offering a deal to a specific group you are also saying "if you aren't in this group, you need to pay the "normal" rate, which is more expensive". Those deals are total horseshit, and you should not get any assistance based on your line of occupation. Assistance should be assessed based on need, which is based on hard facts like a person's income and dependents. And, there is no such thing as discrimination against white males.

I'd advise you to seek out a counselor, particularly one who utilizes ideas from David Schnarch (Crucible therapy). There is clearly a control dynamic in your relationship regarding sex and your wife is communicating this to you, and you to her, and you may need some assistance in figuring it out. Just reading "Intimacy and Desire" may illuminate a lot of things for your, but professional help seems warranted if you desire more sex than you are currently getting, and its led you to seek out advice publicly.

@7 wow, you really fucking missed the point there. Here you go: Uber is guilty of actual crimes involving assault by their drivers who they failed to vet. They are not prosecuted. Double standard. Uber = white privilege. Make sense now? I'm not sure how you got to me arguing that there is a "CEO" of black people, but I guess we are all guilty of not actually thinking sometimes.

Lets not forget about the numerous assault cases perpetrated by Uber drivers. While these individuals are responsible for their behavior, how is Uber not partially responsible for failing to properly screen individuals operating under their business model?

Its about time he fucking stepped in line so we can start working towards ensuring the raging garbage fire that is Trump does not make it into the White House. It's going to be pretty hard to get any change when that orange faced atrocity is elected and gets the opportunity to appoint at least one supreme court justice. Christ.
