Re: Music recommendations

Wow, I've missed a lot of good stuff on the last few pages while I've been on a bit of a hiatus. But before I comment on some of those, right now I'm here to tell you about this video below. If the recording of Bach's Chaconne (from Partita No. 2) that you're listening to is not literally making yo...

Re: New Home for My Stuff

I’m trying to do a clean up and out soon. Big Brother/Big Sister was picking up last month, some local shelters and halfway houses were interested in books, the Red Cross is still taking clothing, and I was considering a dumpster bag for the rest! But we are in pretty good shape here in Mass, since ...

Re: I see you

Apples and grapefruit, Gob - which is a ridiculously silly name, but no one here seems to object or have a problem using it, or refuse to do so and “explain” why.

Re: Washington Redskin's New Name?

[quote=Scooter post_id=293527 time=<a href="tel:1595169199">1595169199</a> user_id=74] I am saying that "Redskins" is a racist term for Indigenous Americans. In any other context, no one would ever contemplate using it, because it would be recognized as such. Ok, if the indigenous people have state...

Re: I see you

Truth of the matter is, I will call anyone by whatever they choose to call themselves, but if requested by Squigglypantyfarthobgobblin to call them "they" I will politely decline, and explain why. So you’re going to give them a lecture about how you are right and they are wrong? Where did I say tha...

What Econo said. Plus, we don’t cut and run. I’m not giving up that easily. Never have, never will. As for voting - bless the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The legislature passed early vote and early vote by mail earlier this month, and we just got the first mailed application today. There will be ...

Re: Cancelled cancel culture

Much ado about nothing. The right to free speech has never included the right to make me listen, or purchase a ticket. Even George Carlin understood that. People have been boycotting commercial activity from companies they disagree with for as long as I have been alive, and certainly longer. A perfo...

Re: I see you

Seems to me that if 'Stacy' prefers to be 'they' (etc.) it's no skin off my nose I agree; Stacy can do as he or she wishes. But I won't use "they" and Stacy can like it or lump it. His or her choice. You keep on preaching love, but you have ignored respect (and my specific points about same). Love ...

WHITE HETEROSEXUAL MEN OF THE WORLD, YOU'RE ON NOTICE!
Why does this bother you? No one is suggesting that anyone speak to or regard you differently. Or heterosexual white men, in general.

Re: I see you

Yeah, I see that I was laughing a lot. Wasn't. No, I won't call anyone what "they wish". I'll call 'em what they are. Fellow humans, lovely folks. But not "them" or "they". I'll just use the person's name. How about that? The world isn't what you tell me it must be. You’re totally missing my point ...

Ashley Graham - with a luscious plus sized body, and who works out with Lindsay Vonn’s trainer (who is a beast). 473AD42F-FDFB-47BF-9908-E0CEB566F778.jpeg See, that’s what a naturally large-busted, large-bottomed woman looks like - she’s also got an even distribution of adipose tissue on belly, leg...

Re: I see you

Just loving people includes being respectful of how they want to be identified and referred to.

It’s as simple as what Sue once said about gender harassment in the workplace - don’t be an asshole. I’ll add, don’t presume you know better than someone else about that person.

Cool. My godson is non-binary - trying to get used to referring to them as they. My brain still processes that as plural.
