    If you wish to act like a girl then that is your business, just do not try to hide in the closet by slapping another label on it. Not everyone falls for something just because someone slaps another label on it, look its not used is pre-owned, look its not gay marriages its civil unions/domestic partnerships, look its not a Bong for smoking weed its a water pipe for smoking tobacco.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Journaling

    I don't keep one now, but I used to, back in my late teens and early 20s. It was useful for helping me sort out my thoughts.

    I also had a blog for a few years, until shortly after I became a dad. At that point I had to chuck a few things I didn't need so that I could have time and money for what I do need. Neither the blog nor my CoH subscription made the cut.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

Are these the rantings of a two year old ??
    Are you ever disturbed and does civility and respect mean anything to you? So ,off come the gloves.
    Make no assumption about me, boy,as you are totally wrong.
    As to journals or diaries, many well know men and women have maintained these during their lives - how do you think they write their autobiographies?
    Or do you think?

    TED,
    Ignored it for that very reason.

    I use a free software called Efficient Diary for my really personal thoughts, and I also have a blog that I put a variety of stuff on, from health info and political stuff, to music videos. I enter something in my personal diary on most days. I think it's interesting to go back and read even mundane stuff later.

    That's awesome. I wish my Dad had kept one. It would have been something nice to remember Him by.

    Re: Journaling

    My grandfather, a poor farmboy and a real firebrand, kept a journal of all the women he dated in his youth. He evaluated each young lady based on intelligence, wit, appearance, and skill at dancing. He rounded each entry out with a letter grade overall.

    My grandmother was the final entry in the book, and he gave her an "A+."

    We found it after he passed away and we were cleaning out his house. My uncle found it first, and he blushed fire-engine red and tried to keep the rest of us from seeing it.

    Real men sit on a comfortable chair and type away at the computer keyboard for hours on end with a box of Kleenix on hand in case he gets emotional.

    Can you please stop turning this thread into your personal cause? No one cares about your gender stereotyping. I asked people if they kept a journal, and if they do then why.

    I didn't ask jamesrage what it means to be a man. Seriously, stop trolling and go make another thread if it's so important to you.
