'A stroke made me gay'?
Posted: 4/18/2012 1:34:10 PM

You are born as a blank canvass, your environment is the main factor in what you become.


Not really. Our DNA plays a huge part. It's a big ol' confusing mix of nature and nurture and it makes no sense to insist anything is 100% caused by either of them.

As to the person referring to the "gay industry" earlier...wow, paranoid much? Gay people really aren't out to get you. Unless you'd like that, perhaps.

Equal rights... does this cover everything?
Posted: 3/30/2012 1:30:54 PM
The OP is way off base. You can't challenge women being given legal equality just because some women are gold diggers (or whatever term you want to use). Equality isn't conditional on a group meeting a certain standard of behaviour in some weird monolithic block. Some ethnic minorities are criminals*, should we not implement anti-racist legislation until they all stop?

These bitter, borderline bigoted attitudes about what women are like don't help anyone.

What do you think of men that have a fascination for naughty or dirty pics of women?
Posted: 1/30/2012 10:55:50 AM
Facebook really isn't the place for that kind of thing - very strange!


I just don't like the ones that portray the women as cheap trash and yes, I guess from my point of view, that's quite offensive - maybe I am a prude after all haha


No, I don't think you are at all. I like seeing naked women, but there's a difference between tasteful, thoughtful pornography and the more basic, exploitative stuff.

What happens when you pass away...
Posted: 1/15/2012 6:51:20 AM
Nothing happens...and I'm fine with that. I didn't exist for billions of years before I was born - non-existance after my death is exactly the same.

Worrying about an after life has the potential to spoil your current one (and only)

Topless men
Posted: 1/12/2012 9:43:05 AM

If you are a POF man who does not display his boobage, why did you choose not to and do you feel intimidated by the males that do?


It just never occured to me to post a topless shot. Unless I happened to be at the beach or something when someone snapped me, I wouldn't have such a pic - it'd seem daft to pose for one at home!

And not intimidated...I have pretty good pecs :D

Suicide?
Posted: 9/4/2011 2:59:49 PM

Would i commit suicide? Absolutely not. Bloody cowards way out and there are people on this earth who need me and I am no mental midget.


Not a particularly helpful attitude. Depression is an illness. It's not a matter of just being strong and battling through it and you'll be fine.

Is Prostitution An Acceptable Way To Earn A Living?
Posted: 8/24/2011 5:09:37 AM
"Would you be happy for you mother or daughter to be a prostitute?

No, so therefor it's unacceptable"

The acceptability of something is really little to do with the moral preferences of other people. I wouldn't want a relative of mine to be a soldier in Iraq, or a boxer, or a Tory MP, or a priest. But these preferences mean nothing.

girl ya gotta love your man!
Posted: 8/17/2011 10:52:19 AM
Why would any man want a woman to look after them? Surely a "real man" can look after themselves? Traditional roles seem pretty sad to me. I want a combination of best friend and lover, not a mother or a maid.

How safe are males in the light of official evidence?
Posted: 7/22/2011 7:22:39 AM
"Whats wrong with intuition ? its quite obvious soon after meeting someone if they are a nutter, space cadet etc."

The problem is that it's not "quite obvious" at all. It's not just "nutters" who commit casual violence or rape against women. Do you really think rapists all have mad swivelling eyes and froth at the mouth?

The idea of people being able to check up on individuals does seem a bit Big Brother, a little intrustive. But let's not pretend women don't have good reason not to be apprehensive about the men they meet.

Songs that you play, when you break up with her/him?
Posted: 7/21/2011 12:42:06 PM
"Monsters" by Band of Horses - not for the title! But the lyrics - "if I am lost, it's only for a little while" :)

Drinking question
Posted: 7/21/2011 12:39:15 PM
No, you shouldn't. It's sexist to believe that women should drink a certain type of drink - no need to change just to fit in with guys who have old fashioned attitudes!
