  1. Well, I would never say I don't like you, but I'm sure there's a lot of people in your life you don't like. I've read through hundreds if not thousands of old threads on this forum and it's always the same handful of women who start attacking people if they don't agree or say something they deem out of line. I know Scott was kidding a couple months ago when he said, uh oh, the jackels are after me again, but he's correct, that's what it feels like. I'm sorry to say it but when you girls get together you can be down right cruel. This poster is banned. There is too much to clean up so let's get back on topic.
  2. I'm confident you don't understand how you come across to anyone with half a brain. When I pray tonight I'm thanking God for letting me live with women who think the exact opposite as you come across
  3. From the second or third day I joined this forum I've been called all kinds names and been insulted and I think it's always been by a handful of women who act like they own this board. You guys are mean. I've tried to be upbeat, cheerful, compliment people and just be an all around good person. But a man says one wrong sentence on here there is a group of women who won't let go until there's no more meat on the bone. One wrong sentence will derail a thread and send people off in a tizzy because you don't agree. It's ridiculous!!
  4. Well, I decided months ago if you, raingirl or Julianne were in my ward, I would sell my house and move to a different stake because I wouldn't want my daughter's to be in any class you might teach in young women's. I don't believe in child abuse.
  5. You want me to prove women can float on clouds? Well I guess if you supply the cloud I'll see if you could float on it. Might work, might not, who knows, I'm not a scientist, just a dumb roofer.
  6. Aaaahh shucks morning star! I teed that question up perfectly for you. I was hoping you would say, well Atlanticmike, if you really want to know why don't you look in the mirror dumb xss! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ That would of been great! Oh well๐Ÿ˜ I'll keep tryin.
  7. Thank you morning star!!! That's all I wanted to hear. I was getting tired of the man bashing on this thread. Young men are less likely to report any type of sexual abuse so we really don't know what percentage of women actually sexually assault young men and even young women. Do men do modt of the assaults, of course, I'm not denying that. But this pretending that women are innocent and are nothing but sweat angels floating on clouds while men are brute beast just dying to get into the women's locker room is ridiculous. Just about every man I know would go out of their way to protect any innocent child or women.
  8. ๐Ÿ‘ Scouts was a positive influence in my life also. Did you get your eagle?
  9. Are you suggesting that it might of been a good idea for the church to of parted ways with the BSA because of sexual abuse? If so, then that kinda opens up the discussion about what we do with the sexual abuse inside other organizations like religions, including ours.
  10. Dang , I was just telling calm about my aunt who refused to go in public bathrooms in fear of a black women had sat on the toilet seat. I can remember being in at a rest stop in the mountains of Virginia, I was probably 10 or so, and my aunt almost peed her pants because she wouldn't go in the bathroom. They made us kids go get drinks out if the vending machine so they could pull the van around back past the semi trucks so my aunt could squat down an pee on the ground. I'll never forget that day, it's seared into my brain. I don't know why some people are transgender. I personally feel like some people are possibly born with a chemica imbalance, possibly something happened in the womb. I also feel like some trans people are possibly dealing with certain trauma that happened to them and identifying as a different gender than what they see in the mirror because somehow they think it will relieve pain they can't figure out how get rid of. But that's all speculation on my part. One thing I do know though is the pain and torment they live with daily because of feeling confused is probably more than I could bear. There's a lot of emotion being discussed on this subject, number one being fear of the unknown. Fear is an important emotion, it's helped keep us humans around for a long time on this floating rock. Fear is used by other people to control what we think in every part of our lives. Our parents use fear to raise us, some religions use fear to control us, politicians use fear to gain votes. Our brains are wired to make sure we stay alive at all cost, that's why change comes slowly for us humans. What we've been discussing for the past day and a half when it comes to the transgender issue has more to do with us heterosexuals understanding someone who is transgender isn't a threat to us or our loved ones, more than it has to do with figuring out why someone is trans. I've said this before but I'm going to say it again. I knew my daughter was gay before she did, I accepted it before she did. Being a very conservative Mormon guy I realized what was in store for my daughter years before she ever told my wife and I she was gay. So I started preparing her for the day she wanted to tell us she is attracted to women. But one thing I've never told you about is how I had to prepare myself. I knew if I wanted to be there for my daughter for the rest of my life I had to come to grips with the fact that if my daughter was actually gay, I basically had two choices, accept her for who she is or risk losing a very important relationship because of a circumstance I can't control. So I chose to accept her. It's the best decision I have ever made in my life so far. The hardest part though was changing my long held perception of what a gay person really was. Early in my life they were pure sin, agents of the devil. I was taught this early on. I had to come to grips with what was actually real, and what I was actually letting fear tell me what I percieved as "real". I view the transgender issue the same way. Most of what we hear from both sides of the isle is total bullxxxx when it comes to the transgender issue. The issue is a political pawn and they're using it to scare and manipulate people on both sides. The actual people who suffer the most are the transgender individuals themselves. Personally, I think it's best to understand that we don't understand.
  11. I'm trying to follow your logic about a locker room being a safe space for women. If a locker room is a safe space, why shouldn't a college campus be? It seems to me if you had male only and female only colleges, on campus sexual assaults should go way down. True?
  12. Serious question calm, because I'm trying to understand where you're coming from. So I just read a bunch of articles on how 20 to 30% of college females have been a victim of some kind of sexual assault. Do you think it would be a good idea to have male only and female only colleges?
