About

This is where I come to make notes, talk about things that catch my interest, share ideas, etc…  Currently I am getting my MBA.

Let me be blunt and unapologetic.

I am unrepentantly liberal.  I am an atheist.  I am pro-choice.   I believe we cannot have freedom of religion without freedom from religion.  I think everyone should seek higher education.  I think homosexuals are people and deserve to be treated as such.  I believe in racial and sexual equality.  I have friends of many faiths, nations, creeds, and genders.  As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone who didn’t consent to be hurt, I don’t think society has the right to interfere.  My support of the Constitution is not limited to the second amendment.

And this is my playground.  If you can’t handle any of the above, go be dumb somewhere else.  It’s a big internet, I’m sure you can find someone out there who will sympathize when you cry about how mean I am not to let you track your shit through my living room.

Other than that, welcome to the playground.  Play nice, or I’ll feed you to the dragon.

    Play nice or you’ll feed me to the dragon? Why don’t you try “playing nice” when you are posting on other blogs and replying to people who have a point of view different from your own? It’s a concept known as “practicing what you preach.”

    Btw-”many genders”? Uhm, there’s ONLY two….1)male 2)female

  2. Oh, look, a troll! I’m sorry I had to school you somewhere, but you’d have to be more specific. Whoever you are, you apparently weren’t worth remembering.

    Genders;

    Heterosexual male
    Heterosexual female
    Bisexual male
    Bisexual female
    Asexual male
    Asexual female
    Transexual male
    Transexual female
    Homosexual male
    Homosexual female

    And I’m sure I’ve missed a few. Now you’ve been schooled again. Hopefully, you’ll learn something.

    Oh-kay…I’m such a troll that I haven’t even looked at your website content other than the “about” info. You didn’t school me on anything on the ImNotSorry blog other than the fact that you take scriptures and twist them to mean what you WANT them to mean and use outdated translations.

    The “genders” you refer to? Those aren’t genders (aside from male and female) they refer to people who either have changed their biological gender or the various sexual orientations.

  4. Obviously, I got to you enough for you to come to my blog.

    Now, my little ignoramus, I suggest that:

    A: you read your own bible, in it’s entirety, so that in the future you know what it does and does not say so that in the future, you don’t look like a complete idiot when trying to defend your pseudo-religious beliefs.

    B: You get a basic education in human biology so you know ‘how babby is formed’ so that you can at least provide some sort of coherent argument when attempting remove rights away from women. I remember you now, you were yet another misogynist who believes women are sluts who should be punished with a child.

    C: You get a dictionary and look up the definition of the word ‘gender’. For starters, gender is a social construct, sex is the biological construct. Sexual orientation IS gender. You might want to read an introductory sociology textbook.

    School is out, you’ve failed, go be dumb somewhere else now.

    Hi. I think we’re rapidly approaching derail status with the thread we’ve created. If you’d like to have a back and forth with all that information you’ve recently posted, make a post about it and I’ll comment.

    Responding to everyone at the same place is threatening to make my posts look spammy, and you have a lot more to say than most of them.

    Sure, since you don’t want to get your ass kicked by a girl in front of an audience, we can play here.

    I feel a bit odd weighing in so long after the troll and such, but I feel like I should make some commentary on your description of genders.

    I, um, am really not exactly on board with the idea that orientation is gender. Orientation is orientation. It’s an entirely different axis, and I’ve never seen anyone other than confused fundamentalists claim that it’s a gender identity.

    Also, trans* people can be binary-identified, and third-gendering them is inappropriate and kind of (I’m guessing unintentionally here) transphobic. And the erasure of nonbinary people and just listing mostly cis people in your descriptions of genders seems a bit off.

    Sorry to intrude, but as a genderqueer person, I can tell your heart’s in the right place here, but your information is a bit lacking on the subject.

    As a genderqueer person myself, my comment was meant more to address the silly little asshats that do think sexual orientation/’appearance’ are enough to define ‘gender’ and insist on gender-roles. As far as I am concerned, ‘gender’ is a more or less meaningless term. And as someone who doesn’t fit into any particular category myself, yes, I know the list is ‘off’ because there is no such thing as a complete list. I could spend days trying to list all the possible orientations, and the truth is, I don’t think that it matters, as long as everyone involved is giving their full, informed, enthusiastic consent,

    I even pointed out that I was sure I missed some, as there are orientations that, off the top of my head, I did not know the appropriate terminology for. Is ‘heterosexual/homosexual transsexual male/female’ how you’d phrase it? I’m happy to expand the list. I know I left off all the polys, but that was because I honestly had no idea what phrase to use to describe someone like my friend T, who was born male, is transitioing to female, and prefers the sexual company of women but is also attracted to more effeminate looking males and is currently in a more or less permanent relationship with both a man and a woman but who isn’t opposed to having sex outside that relationship as long as it’s safe and the others are okay with it. And she dresses fairly butch and works in a typically ‘male’ role and engages in typically ‘male’ behaviors but is adamant that she belongs in a female body.

    I gave up because, well, I don’t see how it matters. Her relationship is more healthy than a lot of the ‘traditional’ couples I know, she’s my friend, I love her dearly. She requested I refer to her using the feminine terminology, and that’s good enough for me.

    I’d say I’d love to learn more about it, but the truth is, I don’t know that I care. I have a hard enough time categorizing my book shelves, let alone categorizing people.

    So, yeah, my initial comment was oversimplistic and probably could have used a few more rewrites. But in my defense, I was addressing it to an asshat who had been ranting previously that anyone outside of the strict male/female ‘traditional’ binary was a sick person who should be rehabilitated by force if necessary, and I’ve never felt it was worth a lot of thought or effort to respond to such shit.

    I apologize to any I offended by leaving them out. I responded in too much haste to a dipshit who’d spewed all over several other blogs and I should have realized that even if it didn’t deserve my time, I should at least have regard for those who may be caught in the cross-fire or splatter-damage.
