Of course, Mouncey is Australian, so that may be the local custom down under, so to speak.

Don't know, don't need to find out.

Grab her butt and tell her she's fuckable. See if that works out.
Based on your area of interest, enjoy ...

It's a whole new world we live in these days. Not the same as it was 20 or more years ago. Many of us grew up in an age when such things were frowned upon. So we learned to frown upon them also. 20 years down the road, things will probably be even more different.

I guess, in the end, as long as everyone gets a chance at happiness, whether it be with the opposite sex or the same sex or in being the opposite sex, then things are good.

So delusion, fraud and lies are ok as long they make a person 'happy'. Lies and delusion have repercussions beyond the delusional ones. I don't think you have thought this through very deeply.

Perhaps not. Just don't want to be the "bad guy" making other people feel unaccepted, I guess.

I found out today that a guy I knew in high school who used to dress like Boy George passed away. He had a difficult time in school growing up but he was apparently happy in his final days. I probably gave him a few qualms myself back then. But I sort of feel badly now. I don't know.

I get it.

I don't even consider myself to be a human. Rather I am a conscious entity experiencing what it is like to be a human.

The Philosophy
At any particular moment when each atom in the universe exists in a particular configuration of molecules, it must exist as such. It can be nothing other at that moment, although with everything going on in the universe, it can definitely be another way in another moment.

This truth extends from the micro to the macro. What is the significance?

It’s a long-winded way of saying:

Because God made him, he must have a place in the world.

I was talking to an elderly black woman recently about this. She apparently got her grandson's underpants in a bunch when she said that white people trying to pass as black does not pick her wallet, break her leg, or prevent her from voting, so she is not going to lose any sleep over it.

Young people get worked up so easily these days.

With age, people acquire wisdom that allows them to look at things much easier and without unnecessary emotions. Unfortunately, not all people become wise enough to realize such things.

Pointless, shallow comment. Science matters. The truth matters. Repercussions other than 'your wallet' or 'your legs' matter (and it may well hit her in the wallet in ways she hasn't thought of).

And be careful how you describe a person. It may well be illegal one day to call a person 'black' or 'elderly' so it could come back to bite you in the arse :lol:

Unbelievable': House Democrat's opening prayer ends with 'amen and a-woman
https://thefederalist.com/2021/01/04/de ... nd-a-woman


That actually tops the obnoxiousness of Congressmen addressing women representatives as, "The gentlewoman from ___," which is done to be PC equitable with the word, "gentleman."
What a pathetic fool. And he doesn't even say 'Amen', he says 'Aman'. Exactly what point is the idiot trying to make? The word 'Amen' has nothing to do with the word 'man', making his loony attempt to be 'inoffensive' even more offensive.
Maybe it's one of those US accent things, like 'horror is stated as whore, and poor ol' Harry is considered 'Hairy'

That someone "identifies as" whatever isn't a lie or fraud insofar as its telling you something about how they think or feel. It would rather be a lie for them to not tell you this, to not express it. It would only be dishonest if they were claiming some objective fact that weren't the case, like saying that they were born with a different set of genitalia, or different genetics, or that they achieved some objective status they didn't achieve, etc.

Not sure what you see as bullshit there or why you think it's uniquely American, but okay.
