    Uber- are you trying to make me pull all of my hair out in frustration?

    if a girl likes you it doesn't matter whether or not you have a job OR if you have sex experience! If you're a student you're on your path to getting a job, and the less experience you have the less bad habits she'll have to train out of you!

And this is something I want to at least try before I hit 23 so I can feel less insecure, but I need the money first.

    Or are people still able to get it that way without necessarily being employed?

    And I heard most women want men to be experienced.



    I mentioned to the mods to move post 76 and beyond to my blog.

    And the derail was not my fault...this is just a subject that really gets to me.
    Uber, why do you place your self-image in all of this? No one knows how many sexual partners you have had until you tell them. Confidence (not cockyness) is attractive and has associated traits.
    For instance: I occasionally take the bus with someone I know from elementary school. She totally assumes I get laid a lot based solely on the basis of my "normalness" (i.e. I don't give off the vibes you think you give off). (I don't imply that I get around, I just don't want to talk about sexual behaviors with her, and she assumes this. We're not that close.)

    I will credit you a little more weirdness than me deemed solely on our personal differences, but I'm also an INTJ female, which puts us almost equal on the balance scales.

    Difference between us? Not much except for attitude and where we place our self-worth. People can see right through that. As soon as you start believing you're awesome, other people will see it too. (Assuming you get out there a little and balance your life a bit.)

    Sex is so overrated. What is important are the relationships you form. Sex is just icing on the cake. If you are going out in the world with the intention of getting laid, then I feel you are doing it ass backward. And first times are supposed to suck, otherwise you wouldn't have such fantastic nostalgic memories thinking back.

    It's like when you first are learning to ride a bike. You may need training wheels and you are almost guaranteed to fall down a few times and get bloodied up, but then you get the feel for it and it comes naturally and is one of the most exhilarating feelings in life. A virgin is like someone who has never ridden a bike. Everyone is nervous and a little scared the first time they do it, and its a good thing because it's part of the experience and something everyone shares. And just like sex, you can't really describe the experience of riding a bike, it's just something someone has to do to grasp the feeling.

    I think some of the questions were worded awkwardly. Particularly the right to life question, as abortion and euthanasia are two completely different topics that people don't always share the same opinion on.

    Those should definitely be separate options. I think it also lacks a distinction between "I choose to abstain from X" and "X is always wrong for everyone and should be illegal".

    Not to jump the thread from all the things great with sex (man, we got some sex crazed posters up in here...:rolli

    But:

    Being intolerant to any behavior that may destroy individuals, families, and our culture.
    Oh hell no I can't agree with this. This is the most xenophobic, ethnocentric, culturally homogenous etc.etc.etc. insidious kind paranoia and hate masked behind a benign, feel-good veneer of 'family values'. Who exactly is included in 'our culture'. Who's speaking and behalf of whom? I highly doubt that I or 'my people' (or even you) are included in this 'our' so no thank you.

    I will fight to protect and uphold the basic human rights (and OMG people, I do not consider 'the right to smoke indoors in public places' to be covered under that) regardless of what or whose culture someone is from or identify with.

    See, the problem with this 'which do you agree with' thread is knowing where these stated values come from, I cannot divorce them their real meaning and the agenda they serve. I know some of these stated traditional values seem so harmless or even wholesome but I know better.

    I abstain. Hahah, well no I actually I don't actually abstain abstain but you get the picture.

    Damn...look what you bunch of perverts have done to me! I will say this for the 4th or 5th time until it becomes my tagline and immediately associated with me but -- I am a L-A-D-Y.

    That is my traditional value.

    But the agenda only goes as far as the person who espouses the particular opinion. These values can be harmless or wholesome if the person in question lives them in this way. For instance, just because some company lies and tells me "your time is valuable to us" doesn't mean that I cannot be heartfelt when I express a similar sentiment to a friend. To say that you know better is to assume everyone is out to get you.

    But the right wing IS out to get me.

    And that's exactly where these values ad verbatim were lifted from.

    I was speaking directly to the original question and the original source of these values.

    So in this case, I do know better.

    That's very much my issue too. Who says their view of what the culture should be is the right one?

    And to support their POV, they often try to go back and say, "Here's what the Founding Fathers intended." But usually this is just scrounging for support for their concepts of what already they believe the country should be. And after all, the Founding Fathers have been dead for 200 years or so, the country is very different, and the world is very different; perhaps what was appropriate then is not appropriate now; and usually their view of the past is still a glorified one.

    (Honestly, if Thomas Jefferson tried to become an elder on the board of an evangelical church, he'd most certainly be kicked out; and yet people keep appealing to him and his peers as if they would endorse conservative religion.)

    It's just rather offensive that some people, instead of viewing the group in context, are so attached to their way of life that they not only disenfranchise those who disagree but also attach moral stigma to dissent... as if people who do not share their particular values are now degenerate in some way.
