Largo I sent you email. Check out FB. I put 1 of the calculator's there. They seem incomplete for some other parts.

"gen z psychos?"

It's not easy to have a conversation with this kind of characterization. The conversation immediately becomes "us vs. them." Obviously, "psychos" cannot be reasoned with. Why try?

If you mean to explore a topic with others, a little less evaluative characterization might be helpful and encouraging.

Damn, Largo. Your ideas are completely rational and to the point. How anyone but a psycho could have a problem with such a "code" only shows that they don't want to address the problem. It's far more important to have someone, anyone, to scream at and feel righteous. We are living in a pretty effed up time. Ugh.

Agreed MikeL, itís that same kind of characterization from both sides that leaves little space for dialogue or understanding.

A woman I know is one of the Stone Nudes. She says that many if not most of the men she has climbed with want to f*#k her. Luckily, she hooked up with my friend Jill, who I taught to climb and basically gave all my gear to after my traumatic brain injury,

You can't even go to a gym anymore without people being dressed in underwear, basically.. actually in the stuff too transparent and unsanitary to even be worn as underwear. I think this should be outlawed (for both women and men, yes), in parallel with outlawing harassment.

their outrage runs much deeper, into personal histories that likely are dark as night.

Nailed it.

These three poor ladies seem to be further torutured by extensive Psych training at universities, which in itself is a hall of mirrors. (horrors)


Funny how Largo and Chris Owen, trying the hardest to help, are getting attacked most severely.

Ladies, they are on your side and trying to help.

With all the focus on DEI training in this and the Beckwith incident, the cynic in me canít help but wonder if this is partially an effort to boost the value of a certification/degree that hasnít penciled out for a group that already feels marginalized.

Make our education a requirement for participation, thereby creating demand where none existed before.

Largo I didn't know what gen z was when I posted here. Again as mentioned in the aol email your FB is not appearing in OC where I'm at. Though it was also being filtered out in years past.

Wow, so much mansplaining going here when the obvious has been completely overlooked ignored and marginalized. Many books have a forward written by someone other than the author, 500 to 1,000 words seems to generally be the formula. Simply Hire one of the offended parties who is trained an educated onsaid subject to write about sexual harassment.df

Edit, it's not about being right, it's about doing what's right. . .

Once the anti-harassment policy is in effect all the attention-seekers would be losing their fan base... will be a bummer.

I'm with DF: the sladies need to be the ones who write the introduction to Bullwinkles Stone Nudes calendar gyrlsplaining the terrible oppressiveness of non-non-binary men's scopophilia of looking at naked women. Cause DF's adherence to supremacist cisnormative ideology means he can't be objective as he is part of the white patriarchy historically and violently keeping the white Womyn down. ... or something like that.. After all "it's not about being right, it's about doing what's right."

Largo, it appeared, went that extra mansplaining trope of the hero cis-white male mile and he got needlessly slammed. ...and the moral of that story is...? Next time get your parents to pay for a masters degree in "Grievance Studies" first like these gyrls did.

Attack the argument, not the person - or at least try to - at first. It seems these women are miserably failing.

I was unable to ascertain any point - other than they apparently have one that's much better than Long's - but I have no idea what it is - nor do I care to.

Waste of time.

Possibly simple solution:

Just start by telling them you "identify as a woman".
Never mind the XY.
Then they might listen to you?
Otherwise they would be practicing gender discrimination.
Never mind that they were already doing it....

Not really sure what the gist of your post is. So are you saying that Largo can't be criticized because he's Largo? or is this another discussion about how men who don't want to be lectured by women on issues that affect them exclusively?

Being Largo never stopped anyone from attacking me, nor should it. Anyone can lecture me all they want. But I reserve the right to respond, and I chose not to attack anyone, especially those who apparently have had experiences that have led them to believe that all men are pathological rapists not interested in sexual gratification but rather, in control, domination and humiliation of women.

This is perhaps one area that some women might ask around about from somebody actually living in a male body (clueless and un-woke as we might be), who's been led high and low by their "small head" and has done the silliest and most absurd things, has said anything and spent more than they've had and folks, it ain't been to control, dominate and humiliate - for some nutters, perhaps it has, but for the rest of us, taking sexual attraction out of the equation is a good reason to be friends, not to start in with the repression.

When you paint the entire gender with that brush, you deny the diversity found in any group. You kill diversity by claiming it ain't there. That's a shame in my book. Of course it's patently untrue.

Not sure if this is directly related....

How do the grievers (the sladies or whatever they call themselves (or fek they're probably gonna fry me for that...)) feel about lesbians? I mean, are lesbian women oppressive sexual predators who harass women? What about trans people? If one becomes a man, do they become a predator? If one becomes a woman do they lose their predatory nature?

Where is the fund of knowledge? Some poor person might need to make a withdrawal.
