Happy 14th spacefemmiversary rowan!

NICE!! Super happy you're here.

Man. Remember the time before Spacebot where we had to actually keep track of our 'femmiversaries ourselves?? Rough times. I think I managed to remember mine once.

Are you drinking enough water?

For sure. I drink water constantly. To the point that it's silly. It would not be an unusual thing for me to be at a party and have a glass of water, a glass of wine, and a mug of some hot drink is on offer. I mean it's ridiculous, especially at parties that don't have a lot of end tables, but I'm always hydrated. by Enigma in Random

What are you listening to lately?

Bought my billionth copy of tool's 10,000 days album recently. holy fuck I cant believe it was released in 2006. that feels like forever ago. what the fuck happened to good metal/rock bands, guys? everythings all the same shit in different flavours now. the good ones are all dead and the bad ones are all being done for sexual assault or worse.

The female price of male pleasure



Thank you for supporting my point.

Majority of men are not out to trick or control you but a large portion are trying to get laid, and some are trying to control you.

I dont consider a woman whos wants financial stability a gold digger. However, I despise gold diggers as lazy manipulative scum. These are a portion of women who give women a bad reputation and give men like those in MGtow reasons to treat women like shit. Once their looks fade, unless they have found a guaranteed sugar daddy, (which in my opinion is why most wind up dating/marrying near death old men) they have a hard knock life ahead of them. Very likely to end up a dusty prostitute. Its funny because I consider it street justice lol

Hey so that was terrifying

Sorry to hear that and Im glad your ok.

People suck. I travel west to east and back every weekday in my city and I see so many accidents. One day I witnessed a similar situation. On a one way street and sitting at a red light, there was a bus in the left lane waiting to turn. The light turned green but the buss didnt move. The asshole behind the bus decided to go around it and make the turn. The bus was stopped because someone was crossing. He drove around, hit the person and drove off. Almost every pedestrian came running up to see if the guy was ok.

light hearted bitch-post.

i'd like to bitch, again, about my own stupidity this time. edited for privacy because I'm still learning all the glorious ropes of how new pc's spew out information now, and because I'm drunk and editing things is fun.

cleaning up and deleting old online footprints is sooooo fucking boring. deleted my old blog domains. like, just threw $100 for my 2018 subscription down the drain. no more shiny awesome domain name, but i dont give a fuck. im not really the blogging type anymore.

What games have you played lately?

How is the Secret of Mana remake? I've heard some negative opinions, but they may have been people who didn't like the original anyway.

We played Talisman tonight so help me glod

Is that the one with all the dice?
No, but it's the crawliest dungeon crawl and goes on forever like monopoly but with dungeon crawling as a board game until you want to stab your eyeballs out and I've dungeon crawled with the best of them. you roll a dice and an choose direction to go but then have to do what the cards say idk. It's ok for a while but it really just goes on forever and is more of the same.

Can Pro-Lifers Be Feminists?

Again, I ask that users here stop attempting to throw character insults. Please continue the flow of debate here. I simply quoted your post as an example of how we should not engage each other, and I continued the flow of debate with my next post.

There have been no character insults yet in this thread. A character insult, AKA Ad Hominem attack, would be something like this example: "You are a barely literate, quite immature, anti-choice troll who is self-righteously trying to reframe the abortion conversation into this bullshit life vs death crap that's already been proven irrelevant. You throw "now, now, let's be nice" tantrums whenever you can't come up with a cogent answer. At this point it's just entertaining to see you proudly chomping at the hook and ignoring the worm. So chomp, little minnow, chomp. I got nothing better to do than practice yet again on another ignorant, self-righteous, misogynistic anti-intellectual."

Quiz: What kind of engineer should you be?

Engineering is one of the coolest jobs in the world, but there are so many disciplines it can be a little daunting to choose one for yourself! I wasn't happy with the existing quizzes, they were mostly way too direct (do you like bridges or wires? uh...) or way too career-spammy, and they were all way too serious. So with that in mind I took some personality traits and kinda did my best attempt at mapping them to engineering fields. It's not scientific or accurate because it really doesn't matter, engineers do so many things and move around so much there's no way to predict what path you'll end up on... so relax! This point of this test is to combine the fun of a personality quiz with the usefulness of a career test... hey look at that, fun AND useful? It's getting engineer-y already!

Nice to meet you all!

Thanks for the warm welcomes! Nice to see since I'm a little socially anxious - not so much online, but still.

I've wondered about studying art stuff, mostly because I've never had any formal lessons, just self taught. I went to go post in mixed media, but I can't seem to start a new thread for some reason? I started a new deviantart anyway since I forgot my old one:

Masculine crossdresser reaction.

Hairy legs and faces are cool as fuck. Sort of derail time but I periodically grow out my body hair, not as a consciously feminist thing but as an obsessive thing where I feel like it's purifying or something, and then shave it off. Right now my legs and armpits are the hairiest they can be but I will never have actual hairy cool legs no matter how hard I try. It will always be crappy blond and sparse. ;_; My armpit hair has actually darkened from my early 20s and used to be very red though. :O by geldofc in Feminism

How do we beat these misogynists?

Alright, I like you. I agree with your point with the only hangup being: just be careful not to become like what we oppose. But you get that. Reminds me of a Youtuber called tobuscus. I still don't know if he actually did what his ex said. A lot of people came up andc said "yeah, he's a bag of dicks but everyone knows that". The confusing part was that there were people all over the spectrum debunking or supporting claims. Tobuscus himself seemed genuinely upset and honest but I still don't know to this day (but I havent checked up on it lately. Probably should). I digress though. by Patterby in Feminism

Debunking Ben Shapiro Transgender claims

Hi, I'm new to the forums, and I feel that this is a great opportunity to enter the community here.

I love talking about social issues with a very objective-based mindset. As a result, I find character assassinations and "punching below the belt" to be useless when debating. I mean if you're stranded on an island discussing the best course of action, I think it would be nonsense to politically throw mud at somebody rather than focus on the objective of getting food and water. So I don't see a reason why talking about issues in an objective manner should be different. When two people disagree, I have a passion for constantly digging the arguments of both sides deep into the ground to understand where exactly the disagreement stems from.

If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?

ok but do I know I'm going to be invisible ahead of time or is this an oh I'm suddenly invisible day? Because that changes things a lot...

Workplace email greeting etiquette

when I send an email at work, I pretty much don't slap in a greeting - wasted text. If you care who is included in the audience, read the recipient list. I get right to the point and say whatever it is I have to say. If you can't figure out that I'm talking to you, you probably shoudn't be using email. by MFS in Careers & Education

what are you reading?

I finally finished "Ulysses", with lots of breaks and a few things in between. I'm not sure if I've ever felt this way about a book before, but I would have enjoyed it more if I was reading it in a class. There were a couple moments where I eventually caught on to what the author was doing changing literary style, but not with enough background to pick out more than a couple. I kept going back and forth between thinking it's genius was not overrated to feeling like it was painful to get through. I really like how Joyce depicts people pretending to be more educated as to keep up with a scholar they admire. I saw myself there, pretending I was able to follow a conversation that I was party to but having no idea what it was about.

So this is where I say hello.

I've actually just taken on a project between friends about a warhammer 40k role play. We've dome it in the past but it was freeform and didn't hold my attention. My idea is to take "kill team" (a smaller form of the tabletop wargame) and make it singular unit, where your unit is your character, with a progression system utilizing regular kill team rules. There needs to be a designated dm but it'll be great. by Patterby in New Members

Flat Earth Discussion

Isn't gravity the primary reason water stays on the surface? Centripetal force (what keeps the water in the bucket) pushes push outward, not inward which is what you'd need for water to stay on a sphere.

Brilliant! The same reason everything else sticks. Everything experiences 1 G.
