Re: I don’t think I can vote for Joe Biden in good conscious

What else can we do to curtail the chances of ending in an election like this again?

Re: I don’t think I can vote for Joe Biden in good conscious

Thanks for your input, Heather. You’re right, now that I think about it. We should give respect and attention to those who accuse these men, not to men (or anyone else) with any history of sexual misconduct or lack thereof. I thought I had a decent solution in mind, but I didn’t. I’m learning a lot ...

Re: I don’t think I can vote for Joe Biden in good conscious

I used to think that men becoming rich and successful and taking up important positions with sexual misconduct allegations on their records was so commonplace that it didn’t even matter anymore. It does. We don’t have to and shouldn’t be desensitized to the problem with men with a history of disresp...

Re: I don’t think I can vote for Joe Biden in good conscious

Thank you. I kinda rushed that last post. There are some things about politics that I am neutral about (like certain ways the government should distribute taxes, for example) but I am vigilant and take seriously accusations of harmful and illegal behavior and when the rights and safety of others are...

Re: I don’t think I can vote for Joe Biden in good conscious

I thought I held a position that I could share honestly and unintrusively here. For that, I’m sorry. Sexual abuse and assault is a big deal no matter who is involved and I will be more careful what I say, how I say it, and where I say it in future. I’m sorry if I’ve hurt anyone with my previous post...

Re: I don’t think I can vote for Joe Biden in good conscious

I hope you don’t mind me chiming in, but I’d like to share that I believe we can support a certain candidate while discouraging some of their behavior. It’s not like we’re voting for someone to embolden ourselves or others in engaging in antisocial behavior. For example, a Trump-supporter I know pro...

Short answer: Yes. Long(er) answer: I’m doing totally fine.

Re: Expect no/slow responses today

It’s too bad we have a nihilist (for lack of a better word) as our president. It’s also too bad that people support and vote for him. I mean, I have a Trump-supporter in my own family. I will never let my grudge against him lift and once I go to college, I will break off all contact I have with him,...

Re: What should I do about the Trump-supporters in my life?

Since I can’t change people’s minds or put an end to the madness Trump and his administration have been unleashing on America, as much as I wish I could, my question is and should be about what I feel is best for me to do (and what is best for me not to do) with people in my own personal life.

What should I do about the Trump-supporters in my life?

I never started taking it as seriously as I should until now. Today being the last President’s Day before the next election reminded me how serious a problem in my life is that I didn’t even see as a problem (or as much of a problem) to begin with: There are people in my life who have in the last el...

Apologies

I've been contemplating my previous behavior on these message boards since a bit over a year ago I've posted them. I feel very bad and disgusted that such a person had once been me. I was someone who felt there was something very wrong with what I was born with, and as a result, wrote and shared mes...

Biological sex insecurity

Bear with yourself here, COTD. :cry: I realize how batshit I went on the political section of these forums. I think this is one of those situations where I completely misunderstood my own motives.

Reproductive rights for men

Following up on my discussion from the Pregnancy and Parenting section, I feel that U. S. legislature has been and still is causing us problems by seemingly trading off rights, especially reproductive rights in this case, between men and women. Women weren't seen as independent, for a time. Now, wom...

Re: Penis Size

I just wanted to recognise after COTD's post, that we do try not to assume the gender of someone's potential partners. Attraction, and preferences vary from person to person, and it isn't particularly about being 'female' or not. I didn't mean it like that. This guy's profile said he was straight s...

Re: Penis Size

Penis size is a lot more of a concern than it needs to be in our culture. If you research this and other sexual education websites, you'll discover that, based on the information based on female anatomy, penis size shouldn't affect female sexual arousal and response. As long as you have birth contro...
