    Oh lordy. It sounds like one of our anti-gays in the military folks who clearly learned about gays from gay porn. Internet + sex = bad.

    Interesting story. In one of my group therapies a couple of weeks ago, the issue of racism came up. I immediately thought about DP, and asked my group how they think their belief systems about things developed... things like abortion, politics, religion, etc... It was a fascinating discussion, with them exploring how they came to be themselves, realizing that many things influenced their beliefs... parents, family, the media, experiences, friends, their school, their town, etc... Each of us developed through such a complex series of things and experiences that it is difficult to tell HOW we got to exactly where we are.

    I always find it interesting when I agree completely with someone on an issue, when I disagree completely with pretty much everything else they say.

    That is quite interesting, and I would like to see how differently sex education is taught in different areas of the country.

Women are capable of working, taking care of the bills and autos and mowing the lawn, play wrestling and all that traditional male stuff.

    When I go out of town on business do you think our children aren't being cared for? When my husband deploys do you think I don't properly care for our boys?

    There's no logical reason why you should oppose such a union. If you are a staunch opponent of abortion - then you must realize that the number of children NEEDING a family will go up - it's just common sense, yes? Well - if you oppose measures that will DECREASE the number of children who don't have a family then you're just making their lot in life - and situation WORSE - not better.

    If there are thousands of capable, willing, well off gay couples WANTING to adopt - then why not let them adopt? The number of equally situated straight families are DECLINING. . . and your views are not going to change that in a positive way unless you let go of your bias and your bitterness.
    And many more times that in heterosexual couples wanting to adopt.....and I'm not bitter tho I'm just as biased as you are. I just hold different values than you.

Good grief.
    I remember that case. Amazing that they had to give you that paper.

    It's also interesting when you agree with someone, but when the two of you get to that conclusion in different ways.

    This is actually interesting since I am composing in my head a long post on the topic of racism and some thoughts on how we react to people based on upbringing. Moving to Georgia I have had to learn that I may not be as indifferent to race as I thought...but that is for another thread.

    If that was the case then I would still think lesbian sex would involve me rubbing my crouch awkwardly over a blonde girls leg while screaming loudly for no good reason.

    Fine, please provide them. So I'm waiting already.
    They're in the thread... as they have been since the day after I found out the links no longer worked. Go get them.



    By "proving me wrong" do you mean really proving me wrong or just saying you're proving me wrong?
