“Then look at it from strict facts: 1) The kid is doing a good deed. 2) The kid is not breaking the rules of the league. 3) The coach is creating an arbitrary rule that has nothing to do with safety or the rules of the league. 4) The kid is not inflicting harm.
In my view, the coach was intolerant. And I have my suspicions as to why. 'Look like a baseball player'? Seriously? Is he telling me no baseball players on a professional level have long hair?”

“And this is what pisses me off. I'm more than happy to see couples get together, stick together, and be happy together. You want tension, find it in a different aspect of the show. This is also what pisses me off in comic books, too. For some reason, the people who run these comic book companies don't want their super heroes to have happy lives. Superman and Lois Lane? Nope, never happened. Spider-Man and Mary Jane? Oh, we'll get the Devil to annul that marriage. Hey, Batwoman proposing to her girlfriend? Screw that? They even said 'nobody in the Bat family is ever supposed to be happy'.
This idea of people having sane, happy relationships seems anathema to the minds of some people, and I hate it. Seriously, if that's what you need to have 'tension' in your storytelling, you're a bad storyteller. Sure, you can start with it, but it NEEDS TO PROGRESS. Sure, not every relationship has to work out, but sometimes, it's nice to see a relationship that is solid, because those of us who HAVE solid relationships may, I don't know, feel some connection to the characters on television, in movies, and in the comics.
A good example? Pepper Potts and Tony Stark in the Iron Man movies. They are AWESOME as a couple. I would LOVE to see them get married. And they would be AWESOME as a married couple! Being a couple isn't necessarily a Big Game Changer. It's like being friends. Just better.”
“I'll have to tell my wife porn is disgusting. She watches porn a hell of a lot more than I do. She writes porn (usually guy / guy), she collects pictures of naked men and women, and enjoys discussing porn and sex. ;)
You do realize not every studio's like that, right? There are men and women who do enjoy their job (I follow one on FB - she quite happily enjoys making and releasing her own pornographic videos, and her boyfriend supports her work behind her work). She chooses her partners, she chooses her scenes, and she decides what is released.”

“There's been a number of discussions about this specifically - a lot of authors and script-writers prefer it when rapid communication is not desired - and to do that, set the story in the 1970s or so. The Blair Witch project though, would have been easy to deal with - 'oh look, no signal!'. And you could blame magic. ;)”
“If a straight person can kiss in public, a gay person should be allowed to, without discrimination. If a guy talks at the work place about how he picked up a girl at a club, a gay guy should be able to as well. If a straight couple can hold hands and flirt with one another while they're in a department store, a gay couple should be allowed to as well.
And, by the by, straight people DO talk about the things they've done at work. No, they don't tend to risk being fired about it. And I've seen very, very few gay couples talk about what they do in the bedroom. I've seen more straight couples do that than gay couples.”

“Go for it.... it thats what excites you then go for it.....”
“Okay, a question: What rights do gays couples want that straight couples don't have? I'd really, really like to know.
1) To marry just like straight people do.
2) To have the same spousal benefits that straight people do.
3) To get the same services that straight people do.
4) To not be attacked because of their sexuality. Like straight people do.
I don't see any 'special rights' there. Did black people get 'special rights' when they got the right to not be slaves? To not be banned from entering buildings? To get work? Did women get 'special rights' when they got the right to vote? Is it 'special rights' when they try to get equal pay for equal work?
Tell me. What special rights are they asking for? I'd really like to know.”

“There are many legal ways to accomplish all of that.
Any person sexual lifestyle should be their PERSONAL BUSINESS and not be shared with others who dont care.
If a straight person walked into their place of business talking about their sexual escapades they would be FIRED! Gays openly want to share it and then cry discrimination. I like many am tired of gays feeling they need to tell us what they like to do in their bedrooms. WE DONT CARE!!”
“Biology. It isn't something controlled. Sort of like saying 'well, I'm going to be running on adrenaline 24/7'. It's all nice to say you'd like to do that, but your body isn't going to listen to your demands.”
“It isn't something you can stop 'going away'. The human brain's wired to produce the chemicals for a limited time. It goes away on its own. You go from 'wow, I can't get my hands off you and want to have sex and such all the time' to 'wow, I feel wonderful when I'm around you, and want to hold you'. For most people, it's a natural progression. For some people, it seems, it is an addiction. The body, apparently, can't turn it off.”
Antidiot on Feb 13, 2014 at 09:10:03
“So for some people it goes away and for others they can't turn it off? You don't think anyone keeps it going on purpose? Why?”
“Yes, I didn't say he did - I said he wanted it. It's unreasonable. If you don't want to have sex that often, you shouldn't be forced to. If you're not interested in sex, but want to hold hands, that should be fine.
I give my wife spontaneous hugs and kisses, we'll hold hands, we'll flirt a bit during the course of the day - neither of us expect this to lead to sex. If one of us is in the mood, we'll bring it up with the other - and if they're not interested, that's perfectly okay. Both of us have methods of dealing with our sex drives if the other's not in the mood, and neither of us feel 'bad' if the other one isn't in the mood at that time.
Sometimes, if one's in the mood, and the other isn't, they'll 'help'. It isn't sex, but foreplay and stimulation's just fine. And the thing is - HE WAS doing something wrong.”
“I can accept it would feel bad for him - but it isn't normal, and he shouldn't think he can force someone to do anything remotely like that. And you are fully capable of being close to someone without having to have sex with them that often.”
“She's a lovely lady, and I like the top, but I really don't think powder blue goes with it. That's my fashion judgement for the night.”

“Fair enough, Christopher. I do think, though, that MANY times the First Lady selects clothing based on strategy, and she is SO smart for that. There is just something this dress that conjures up the ideal of "french fashion", I don't want it is about this dress b/c I'm no expert, but as soon as I saw the pic, I thought, "wow, looks French-ish". It MIGHT be a bit of that avante-garde look w/ the "wings" going on. Some of it looks hand sewn, which is part of what "couture" is about. I think the French people, when seeing the pics, may see something familiar in the dress. That she is able to do that - evoke something like that w/ what she wears is BRILLIANT on her part. And, she did it by using an Argentinian-American designer! It's like her way of saying, 'Yeah, we are a multi-cultural nation and this is our way of tipping our hat to our dear friends in France". The only other woman I've seen in my lifetime who could do that so well was Princess Diana. And, when it comes to international relations, contract, treaties, etc., every little detail helps set the stage...”

“Second that. Not only that blue is not the best choice there, but also the shape of the bottom is somewhat unfortunate.
The dress would be perfect, IMO, if all covered in the black lace, and if the bottom was less fluffy, preferably straight and narrow.”
“Actually, I'd disagree.
I had a relationship for ten years before I got married. Damn straight we had sex before then. These two got married entirely too quickly, I'll certainly agree with that - but if you want to know how well you'll get along with your partner, I think you should go two or three years with them - AND have sex during that time. That way, you'll know each other before you tie the knot, and if you aren't compatible, you'll know that, too.”
“Sure, I'll rant. I don't want sex 24/7.
To me, showing love for another person involves respecting them, respecting who they are, respecting their needs, and showing you care for them with affection in a hundred different ways - none of which have to be sex. Love also means understanding the limits of your partner, knowing when to step back, give them their space, and put off your own needs for a time.
He didn't respect her. He didn't respect her limitations. He didn't respect her body. He didn't respect her emotions. He might have THOUGHT it was love, but the idea that you can't touch a person without sex (or what's the point?) is wrong.”
