I don't know why I bother responding to a topic like this, since there is no winning for posting what you believe to be the truth.

there is never any winning of an argument when all you have are only "beliefs" *sage*

I think men by nature have a higher sex drive than women. It makes sense from a biological standpoint. Men have something and they have an urge to put it somewhere. It's not a result of patriarchy or anti-feminist thought.

men *do* have, by nature, a higher sex drive than women. your followup on why is weird and has circular reasoning and I could make fun of you for it very easily, but I suppose we are here so I'll just sigh and zip on to the simple fact that testosterone is the main component of sex drive and men have much more than women (although women always have at least some). this can explain a great deal of the differences between why men are hornier than women, but of course it cannot explain everything. and it's complicated. everything is complicated forever. it's rough.

If you want to put it this way, is there a lesbian/bisexual woman version of Grindr?

probably! I can't imagine why you wouldn't be keen to it, though

also, can we dispel with this fiction that any woman who wants to have sex can just find a guy without really trying? it's a weird, dumb trope.

Wine is pretty gross. Why would anyone drink it period?

Wine, like most things, is an acquired taste and super good once you're used to it.  It's actually pretty entertaining for a weekend activity to get into the different types of (red) wine.  I think white wine is gross, though.

White wine is too sweet.  Red wine is just plain amazingly though.  Bougie.

You know, I'm an idiot. Like, I don't know much about most things. But I know just a LITTLE about wine, okay? And a blanket statement like "white wine is too sweet" is ridiculous. There are many, many varieties of white wine. Within those varieties, some producers add more or less sugar. I have had some sickly sweet chardonnays in my day, and some delicious dry ones as well. If you want to say something like "Moscato in general is too sweet for me" I will shake your hand and offer to finish your glass for you. But if you say "all white wine is too sweet" I will smack you square in the tit. I won't want to - but I will. Because that is dumb.

the quality of this forum has continued to decline relative to its Semi-Recent Past in the minds of its users since I joined here (I think this is possibly a normal feeling for users of any forum once novelty has worn off and etc). I can barely stand to come here anymore - it felt like before there was at least more interesting content to read, and the atmosphere was less grating.

the bland aesthetic of the forum itself I've also grown to dislike passionately (and the fact that I can't even browse efficiently on my phone is pathetic and something I'm thinking about trying to fix, for fun).

I can't honestly answer this question because pat "generational" understandings of sociocultural trends are stupid.

this is true, obviously, but it's pretty lazy cop out to avoid discussing something that at least exists in popular consciousness. coincidentally "shutting down potentially meaningful discussion over something petty" will be high on my upcoming listicle 20 Reasons Millenials Are Still Just the Worst (#4 Will Make Your Man Bun Flaccid)

i think that even though they both oppose transgenderism that they do so in different important ways

for instance one is more interested in practicalities (do you use toilet paper every time you pee or only sometimes and how can we psychically regulate this in order to prevent Islam) while the other is interested mainly in aesthetics (what if I'm not gay but I'm unwittingly attracted to someone with a fancier crotch than mine, which my mother has repeatedly assured me is very fancy indeed? am I an affront to god in a way I'm ashamed to admit to while even cloaked in online anonymity?)

10  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: is homeschooling child abuse? on: April 04, 2017, 02:14:22 am
for the record I was just having a bit of a drunken troll (the fact that nobody seemed to think the way I was speaking in this thread was especially out of character or something says a lot about me, maybe, sadly). I will admit the "child abuse" angle was in wildly bad taste.

my brother was homeschooled for a little while in high school because he was having trouble with things, and my sister homeschools all of her children. actually I made better friends with the other kids in my school who moved from being homeschooled into class with us. some of them were socially stunted (so was/am I, so), but they've gone on to be just as normal or otherwise as anyone else.

in general I do think it is a bad idea, however.

in a funny way anyone whinging about this is admitting that it bothers them on some visceral level

     This post is just like Christians insisting that Atheists arguing against religion are in fact really bothered by the God question and secretly believe deep down. Sometimes you just want to call out sophistry.

this is a cute parallel, but hillary winning the popular vote is a demonstrable fact in a system that popularly advertises itself to serve the will of the voting majority, so it's actually a real relevant piece of information useful to illustrate how dumb the system itself is and why the winner ought not to be treated reverently. or whatever. but I guess also pasta strainers or something yes

     It being a fact is actually not relevant to the point I am making. You and the Christians are both saying that "people argue against my point, therefore they are really bothered by it and must subconsciously believe I am right". It's a really specious argument.

I'm not really saying that, actually (although I guess it's easy to see how you could make that jump), just that those who complain about a demonstrable fact are probably bothered by it. Bothering these people is probably part of the point of bringing it up repeatedly.

For a child though, the first few years are very important & men don't have the motherly, feminine qualities to connect to a child [snippity snip] & a child needs a mother more than a father.
The rest of your post is more or less fine by me but this is some hot, sweaty nonsense, and frankly disturbing.

I personally feel in the initial few months or a year or 2, a child needs the mother much more than the father. Most of the time mothers are inherently better at raising the child when the child is very young & there are many stuff which an overwhelming amount of fathers just can't do but a mother can.

"Mom is *magic*" (meanwhile, somewhere, a chorus of gay married men are singing in dissonance)

Quote
I was born to a working professional who had a full time good job all her life before & after I was born & never left her job etc, so I 100% support working mothers.

CONTRAST THIS WITH THE FOLLOWING (please also note how it is important to emphasize that ones mom is a "professional")

Quote
The connect a child has with his/her mother in the 1st 15-20 months though is unreal & something you wouldn't understand unless you have a child or have seen children of near one's grow up.

This is an amazing, semi-uniquely Atlasian assumption to make about other posters. For the record, I am currently 17 months old and completely disagree with your silly assertions.

Quote
You can disagree & I said it is the responsibility of both parents to raise the child & not the mother. So I find your comment frankly very offensive.

I respect that you have a unique innate ability to reply to my posts and will forego any criticism from now on.

I grow weary of vanilla unicorn pornography. You know I bestowed moderator powers upon you for the sole purpose of your production of original material. How hard can it be to photoshop a twisted tapering horn on a vivacious barely-legal? Please publicly announce your resignation post-haste (or face the magic)

glad to have established that a clear majority of Atlas users support abusing children by forcing them to disengage with their peers and live a life of cold isolation when learning to build social networks face to face is a vital component still in development

it is funny to note how people equate abuse with future failure - while it certainly makes integrating into society more difficult, it doesn't necessarily make future outcomes worse. sexual assault victims can go on to lead perfectly normal, healthy lives, too. but the scars remain.

parents are perfectly capable of helping their children with their homework and being teachers in that way after they have come home from school. they are also able to influence public curriculum if they so choose.

there is nothing admirable about possibly handicapping a child's socialisation skillset
