Name something you have that you wish was bigger
my summer jacket
I am back did you miss me?
Yep. Where you been?
Have you ever built your own castle out of bog rolls?
No but I know that I am good for loo rolls - he said so
OK I'll say it, it is all men. If you say 'no' we should respect that and stop trying. If we try again after you said no, you have permission to be pissed off. But you can't blame us for trying and if you don't say 'no' -it's not fair to bring it up 20 years later.
You aren't taking into account coerced consent when a man or group of them intimidate women into complying if they don't go along with them for **** out of fear for their well-being or loss of life; that happens everyday, throughout the world.
I would submit that consent cannot be coerced. The victim might say the word "yes" and still not consent - it is a sticky wicket on both sides. How can we know what either party intended or believed in their hearts?
You also said the victim would "have permission to be pissed off"; no one needs "permission to be pissed" ever, and especially not after being victimized a second time!
I stand corrected.
SILENCE IS NOT CONSENT. Please for the love of all that is holy understand that fact.
Trish, I don't condone any unwanted advances - but please understand that there has to be a first attempt. No is a valid response, and I for one will walk away at the first no.
Just say no. And teach your wives and sisters and daughters to say no. Silence sometimes means yes.
Let's talk about ex-con vets. They served our country in the military, and later committed a crime. They served for that too, now they are out of prison. They paid their debt to society. Should we kick them out of the country?
I DID respond to your questions.
Both of them.
1) What is your problem?
Answer - " YOUR headline, YOUR explanation does NOT include the FACT that these men had entered the country illegally. Your intent is clearly to misdirect."
Answer - Jesus would smack you upside the head and tell you firmly to stop being deceitful!
Maybe you just don't read so good!
Avoiding the question
Should we kick them out of the country?
No, Vic, it's not all men. The simple way to solve your dilemma is to let her make the first move. I have never groped, grabbed, fondled anyone that didn't make damned sure that I knew they were receptive to such activity.
I think all these complaints from 20 years ago or sooner, we're not as bad as people are making out...I don't think anyone touching another person without permission is right, but I would imagine a good percentage of things that happened, were minor and now as the complaints come rolling in, many are using it to get compensation....
Maybe JD. Or maybe they have been carrying the burden for years and now feel safe letting it out. Either way I agree that touching another person without permission crosses some line. Do it twice and it is clearly assault, even if it is two different women. In my heart I have to give a pass to the first time a guy does it to the first girl as an awkward learning experience. If he doesn't learn, shame on him.
Women (girls) should be taught from an early age to say "no". "I don't like that", "Stop it!" Say it loud and say it clear.
All men and women alike should know that "no" means "no", that is a given. There is no harm in flirting, there is no harm in pursuing someone. But when they show or tell you that they are not interested in your advances and you persist despite their objections, you are crossing a line.
If you don't say no, then the issue is with you, not with the other person. Regretting an encounter that you consented to does not mean you were assaulted or raped.
Well said. That's what I was trying to say, exactly.
Lol @ "if we didn't try there would be no babies." Vic only laughing because it reminded me/was similar to what my husband would say to me while trying to convince an exhausted me at 4 AM to "make love" (he's a morning person who leaves for work at 5 am) after I came back to bed after feeding our 6 week old baby her 3 am feeding(he knew that 6 weeks was when we could have s e x again), knowing I had to be up in 2 hours to wake up our 5 and 7 year old children to make them breakfast, make their lunches for school, drive them to their 2 different schools(with our new baby in tow) while also in between feeding our baby her 6 or 7 am feeding...where my blue collar husband GOT IT and RESPECTED that I was not interested in having s e x anymore at 4 AM now that I was up every 3 hours feeding our new baby.....eh whereas the supposed wicked smaaaaaat college educated, powerful men in DC, in Hollyweird, in sports and in our news media all lack the basic COMMON SENSE that when a women says NO, that she means NO.
Good for him.
Yes! If the girl says no, it means no.
Can't blame the guy for trying (unless she's a child). But after he gets shut down he has to stop.
The clamour of the crowd made me draw near, to find an old man being held aloft by a group of youths whilst all around people clapped and laughed. From the campanile bells rang joyfully. I asked what the reason and was told that at one time the population was under threat by raiding tribes and fleeing was fraught with danger due to their flapping togas tripping them up. It transpires the old gentleman being feted was named four room because of his dwelling place, and he had devised a leather thong which was pierced and fed through a metal pronged ring. When worn around the waist this held the toga above the ankles and so the people escaped danger safely. For this, he was being duly rewarded and known as four-room the belt holes.
Not all men, vic.
Have you ever been groped, unwantingly, by an aggressive lesbian?
People dont always ask...
I hear you and I am not talking about groping just making a move in whatever form that takes.
no it's not ALL Men
I refuse that notion
Man's Task... make safe the path for Woman to walk without Fear

a father's wisdom from a fishboat
how did Rob Roy say it?
All Men are Kings
not all kings are men
he was speaking of Honor
as was my dad
All men try. Some more crudely than others. If we didn't try there would be no babies.
When a man tries crudely and is rejected he needs to move on, and perhaps refine his technic
No, I don't believe it is all men....just some jerks.... No, I have never been groped, but if I had I would have handled it ASAP and made sure it never happened again. I've been flirted with and even asked out on a date by some guys who knew I was married..... all it took was...."I'm happily married, buzz off." And that ended it.
But when you're a teenager you're not so sure as to what to do. I can see why they didn't come forth when they were young. He was a powerful man, and he could have ruined their lives Now it's their turn to turn the tables on this pedophile.
OK all I am saying is if they say no, the man needs to stop and never try again.
Archaeology Magazine, a publication of the Archaeological Institute of America, is reporting that a site has revealed a box which appears to contain the cremation ashes of Siddhārtha Gautama. The stories of the Buddha are at least as credible as the stories of the Christ or Mohammed.
But...i dont think they pray to him or do things in his name.
I think you are right but I don't know.
Jesus would smack you upside the head and tell you firmly to stop being deceitful! YOUR headline, YOUR explanation does NOT include the FACT that these men had entered the country illegally. Your intent is clearly to misdirect.
And yours is to troll me and avoid answering the question.
In the broken absence of my heart I seek distraction through words immortal.
Endless dreams so more than rapture
More than hope, desire, capture
Absent not most favored creature
She, and each enchanting feature
Move as one ‘tween lust and shame
Fearless, feisty, friendly, tame
Endless dreams with each breath beat
To make my sleep not sound, but sweet
I can and do believe these people existed. Just like the ceasars and pharoahs. It is the idea that they were gods, or chosen that i have difficulty with.
Just curious, but wasnt buddha a teacher, not a god or chosen by one?
Not sure. He certainly has many people who call themselves Buddhists.
Since you don't believe in any deity, what's your point?
It is an opinion. [This is an opinion site]
The way it works is someone (in this case me) posts their opinion and others (n this case you) vote "agree" or "disagree".
My opinion is: "The stories of the Buddha are at least as credible as the stories of the Christ or Mohammed."
Now you get to agree or disagree.
That's how this site works.
I see. Were you aware that these men entered the country illegally? And maybe that had something to do with them being deported? How could that possibly be irrelevant?
Face it Vic - you have an agenda and once again you've purposely tried to deceive the good people of Amirite. Shame on you!
It was clearly stated in the link I provided. What is your problem?
It is a simple question, and as usual you did not answer it. Is that because the answer in your heart makes you hate yourself? WWJD?
What's the most beautiful building you've ever seen?
It is difficult, because there are so many choices. Certainly Neuschwanstein as pictured in OP is one of them; breathtaking as you approach it. Firenze has some real beauties like the Duomo and the Uffizi.
The "Bucky Ball" at the 1967 Montreal World's Fair.
Oops! What do you know? Vic posted a story without all the relevant facts!
Is that the only way you can sell your ideas Vic?
"All" relevant facts? What is relevant to you might not be relevant to me.
There's a link that covers pretty much everything I know about this story.
What's the longest line/queue you have stood in?
Probably in Disney World
