Re: Internet Pornography

The lie (emotional) that men are powerful and women are weak. Weak is another word for the meaning powerless, which you have refuted in the case of women. How else would one interpret this? Are you not suggesting that women are the stronger sex. Reasonvemotion; Let me clarify. Men are not more powe...

Re: Internet Pornography

It has everything to do with gender roles. It's called culture, and we get all out concepts of gender, and normative instructions from our culture. If we got them from our genes then we would all act the same, like squirrels - WE DON"T. Chaz; This is simply not true. We do not get all of our concep...

Re: Internet Pornography

The lie (emotional) that men are powerful and women are weak. This is simply not true. Men are physically stronger in most ways, but that is not power. If a man falls into a well, most will laugh and ask if he was drunk; but if a baby falls into a well, the world stops and waits for its salvation. ...

Re: Time to say Hi!

Socratic Dialogue not Debate Dialogue: Is collaborative: multiple sides work toward shared understanding. One listens to understand, to make meaning, to find common ground. Enlarges and possibly changes a participant’s point of view. Creates an open-minded attitude: an openness to being wrong and a...

Re: Internet Pornography

I didn't say girls are good and boys are bad. I'm not attempting to moralize or declare what is right or wrong, or what gender roles should be. I'm just trying to understand and articulate what is. I apologize. You did not state that girls are good and boys are bad. But you did state that women wer...

Re: Time to say Hi!

Gee, I will get back to your reply but I was accurately stung by your comment that I did not pay complete attention to your thread. I will accept your apology if you will accept mine for my lack of patience. So lets start from the beginning as you are correct that I tend to read a point in the sub-...

Re: Time to say Hi!

Rational minds may be a result of a critical mass of 'grey matter'. If Bees can connect as a collective mind it may be possible for a hive to have some sort of rationality, but as individuals I think it is unlikely. Hi Doc; I agree, it may be grey matter, but how much is actually needed? If bees co...

Re: Internet Pornography

Hi all; The porn stuff was boring, but this is now an interesting thread. I have to agree and disagree with both, Felasco and Chaz, for the following reasons. Felasco: You are correct in your opinion that males and females are different genetically. They are not only different physically, but they a...

Re: Time to say Hi!

The Doc; Words of wisdom. I suppose that I will have to go back in the thread and find your responses, because I owe you some posts. Besides, you are the only one who responded to my list of topics as though you actually understood the instruction. So, if bees have language, does that mean that they...

Re: Connecticut School Massacre - pass the ammunition

gee perhaps i overstated things a bit most nra members are reasonably responsible - which includes storing guns safely - not mixing guns and alcohol etc however there are plenty who should not be trusted with anything more dangerous than a spork - there are enough of them to question whether nra - ...

Re: Time to say Hi!

Gee, Save your platitudes for those who think them of worth as you've obviously not met many philosophers and your response gives the lie to your claim of the Socratic dialogue. So you are saying that you took my statements: "My apologies. I mistook you for a philosopher. It won't happen again." as...

Re: Internet Pornography

I can't believe that I am saying this, but I have to agree with Chaz.

I have seen a whole lot of man hating on this forum, and a whole lot of poor-me women-victims.

Re: Connecticut School Massacre - pass the ammunition

This is the reason that I support the NRA (National Rifleman Association) as they seem to be the only organization that teaches responsible gun ownership. you should go hunting with a member of the the nra sometimes and watch how responsibly they get drunk before they start the hunting anyone who t...
