Re: My Ectopic Pregancy

I've always wondered what causes ectopic pregnancy. I know what it is but why do some women get it and others don't? I'm so sorry for your ordeal... but I'm glad you are alive and made it through. Ectopic pregnancies can kill. Is there any way to have early detection next time? It must be so stressf...

Re: A Question, but sort of a rant: My New Thoughts of Being Apolitical

That said... are you really attached to using your real identity online? Is it important to you to have yourself identified with your opinions?

Re: Teaching men how to find "the One"

"The one" is an outdated romantic paradigm and is usually the reason relationships fall apart. Nobody is going to complete you. No one is going to be your everything. No one is going to be able to provide for all your needs. It takes a community to fulfill that, and it also takes a lot of inner wor...

Re: A Question, but sort of a rant: My New Thoughts of Being Apolitical

In some districts doxxing is illegal and if it's a person in authority at your school doing it, I would take your complaint straight to the dean or whoever's at the top. Most schools have a harassment policy and doxxing certainly falls under that because it compromises a person's sense of safety and...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (spoilers)

I didn't enjoy it... Most of the film's play time was wasted on watching the rebels being chased, and on Luke being a douchebag and refusing to teach Ray. They could've just skipped all that and got right to the point. The other more subtle thing that really annoyed the hell out of me was that it se...

Re: Debunking Ben Shapiro Transgender claims

He uses a lot of the classic techniques, like strawmen, bait and switch, slippery slope, and changing the goalposts. Like comparing a trans person to someone who's 20 claiming they're 60, or a white person saying they're black. As if any of that really happens. He just says it with such conviction t...

Re: MGTOW: Introduction

It's interesting because in the gay male world, there are a lot of men who give up on men for all the same reasons MGTOW are outlining about women. They become celibate or just do one-offs but they never get into emotional entanglement. So these are men that shy away from other men. Clearly this isn...

Re: MGTOW: Feminism Vs Transgenders

The T is already separated from the LGB. The gay community moved on from supporting trans people in the 80's. The first pride movements in NYC were lead by Marsha Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, who were present during Stonewall, both of whom were later thrown under the bus by these movements. I don't fe...

I never thought about how stopping b/c could be a form of stealthing. edit: it's actually called reproductive coercion and stealthing is the removal of a condom which could also expose someone to a wider range of STDs. I hope long-term couples talk about things like consent and b/c and intoxication...

Re: Caution. X Rated.

I watched porn a lot in my younger years. Eventually it got boring once I ended up in real relationships. It's just so repetitive and not a reflection of how real sex operates. Porn is definitely corrupting. I see it all the time in the gay community. It informs body image and sex acts. I've been wi...

Re: I might be pregnant...

Why did you stop birth control anyway? Was there a medical reason? Stopping birth control without telling your partner so that he still thinks it is safe to have unprotected sex with you is a form of stealthing and falls under the general umbrella of rape, IMO. Women who do what you just did are why...
