A guy is taking his girlfriend to prom. He waits in the ticket line for a really long time but gets them. He goes to rent a limo. The rental line is really long but he eventually does it. He goes to buy her flowers. The line at the florist is really long but eventually he gets the flowers. At prom, she asks him to go get punch. He goes to the refreshment table and there’s no punchline.
Rape isn’t about uncontrollable sexual desire. You only have to listen in on a Call of Duty game to see that. When that kid crows, “I raped you!”, he’s not calling the other guy sexy; he’s saying he defeated him, dominated him, humiliated him. That’s what rape is about, and that should scare you.
"apparently you can have sex and be sexually active and still be asexual" Actually, yeah. Just like how a gay guy could have sex with a woman and still be gay, or a straight person could hook up with someone of the same gender and still be straight. it's not like asexuals stitch up their vaginas and cut off their dicks so they can't have sex ever because if they do they'll magically transform into a sexual person
this just sounds like “i can enjoy having sex with as many people as i want but i swear i’m an oppressed sexual minority because i’m technically not attracted to anyone”
With how unmotivated towards life and things that don't capture their immediate and all consuming attention most of the teens who have blogs on this site I'm going to guess that like half of them are NOT going to be video game creators or fashion designers or writers etc. They are going to grow up and have jobs and lives hopefully but I don't see most of them actually doing anything world altering. Is that harsh?
i think they are confusing “uploading files on deviantart” and “writing fanfiction” with being content creators.
I'm confused by what you just recently posted you know with the "Not even having sex can stop you from turning into a dirty sexual." I don't understand what that means? I was just wondering if you'd mind explaining.

I summed up my issue with Libertarians for a friend like this: Ultimately they want all the same thing conservatives want - no food stamps, no welfare, no free education, no public health initiatives, no taxes - but they’re almost kind of meaner about it. The ONLY difference between a Republican Congressman and the 19-year-old kid in your dorm hallway with the RON PAUL 2012 sticker is that the latter is more into weed and against war. Which liberals have been on board with, you know, pretty much always. To borrow from Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada: “Groundbreaking.”
“It’s hard to remember a time when a major political party and its media arm were so actively rooting for fellow Americans to lose. When the first attempt by the United States to launch a satellite into orbit, in 1957, ended in disaster, did Democrats start to cheer, and unify to stop a space program in its infancy? Or, when Medicare got off to a confusing start, did Republicans of the mid-1960s wrap their entire political future around a campaign to deny government-run health care to the elderly?
Of course not. But for the entirety of the Obama era, Republicans have consistently been cheerleaders for failure. They rooted for the economic recovery to sputter, for gas prices to spike, the job market to crater, the rescue of the American automobile industry to fall apart.
I get it. This organized schadenfreude goes back to the dawn of Obama’s presidency, when Rush Limbaugh, later joined by Senator Mitch McConnell, said their No. 1 goal was for the president to fail. A CNN poll in 2010 found 61 percent of Republicans hoping Obama would fail (versus only 27 percent among all Americans).
Wish granted, mission accomplished. Obama has failed — that is, if you judge by his poll numbers. But does this collapse in approval have to mean that the last best chance for expanding health care for millions of Americans must fail as well?
Does this mean we throw in the towel, and return to a status quo in which insurance companies routinely cancel policies, deny health care to people with pre-existing conditions and have their own death panel treatment for patients who reach a cap in medical benefits?
“Vaccination provides more effective protection—so-called herd immunity—when more of us are vaccinated. Universal health insurance works in something like the same way: we are better off as a society—more compassionate, but also healthier—when we can all get the care we need.”—Margaret Talbot on her cancelled policy, her values, and a health-care law for the common good: http://nyr.kr/1cWjMRZ (via newyorker)
A man was caught on camera thrusting his hand into the tip jar at the “Nervous Dog Coffee Bar”. Instead of filing a police report the baristas held a food drive for the man assuming that anybody desperate enough to risk jail for stealing a few bucks in tip money must really be desperate. This is compassion.
Nervous Dog Coffee Bar. I would patronize this establishment for the name alone. Sam.
