Well sure, but nothing about vomiting on their partner.

You've vomited on your partner? I thought you just said you were a virgin?

Conway since his embarrassing blowout loss is further in the rearview mirror.

Conway performed considerably better in 2010 than Grimes in 2014.

56-44 vs. 56-41. I wouldn't really call that "considerably better". Besides, Kentucky was more friendly to Democrats in 2010 than in 2014.

McConnell was considered much more vulnerable in 2014, with his approval and favorability ratings in Kentucky in the toilet, while Grimes was considered a much stronger candidate than Conway with family ties to the state and she ran as an anti-Obama conservative.
31  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What outcome wouldn't be embarrassing for Romney? on: January 15, 2015, 01:34:07 pm
The only non-embarassing outcome is if he wins a clear victory in both the EC and PV.

Tom Dewey closed the gap and came closer to winning in 1948 compared to 1944, yet that didn't spare him the embarrassment of yet another defeat.

I would like to see Mitt run just to get thrashed again, this time even harder. Against Hillary under better economic conditions, Romney would do even worse than 2012. And a man this arrogant and privileged with such an incredible sense of entitlement deserves to get smacked down yet another time by the American people. Son of a mega-millionaire CEO and governor who made millions more destroying American jobs for his own profit, and 3-time loser for the presidency of the United States. A 3rd electoral defeat in a row would be a great way to end his public career as he rapidly approaches 70.

I think people of all classes have birthday parties for their young children. (Unless the parents are simply devoid of class). It need not be expensive. I remember having backyard birthday parties when I was very young, the most expensive thing being the Barney the Dinosaur character. I don't think Chuck E. Cheese or Laser Tag is that expensive either. (Unfortunately I don't think I ever had my own birthday party in either venue, although others' birthdays)

What is truly obscene are the "Sweet Sixteen" parties held for rich girls turning 16. I've heard of Wall Street bankers spending six figures on dream fantasy "Sweet Sixteen" parties for their daughters. "Sweet Sixteen" is something that needs to be abolished.
35  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: So much for the myth of Kirk being sane on: January 15, 2015, 12:45:00 pm
And no, Kirk is not some "insane radical".

But ... but ... he's a Republican. To many of the commenters here anyone to the right of Elizabeth Warren is an "insane radical". Because justice and equality and puppies.
Yes, Kirk is a member of an insane radical right-wing political party. Which explains his insane commentary on Greenland, his radical support for racial profiling, etc.

Anyone sane who tries to run for office as a Republican will be immediately targeted for elimination by the deranged base of that party.

I can't speak for the 2016 board because every presidential election board almost two years prior to the election is going to be terrible. The rest of the Forum has been overrun by the Pruders. It's a very sad thing.

It's like the forum has become a cesspool of mean and spiteful 18 year old Pajama-boys from Europe sprouting their radical views in hateful ways.

Like Antonio?

Have you seen the "Post a Picture of Yourself" thread recently?

What's your point, that the current "Post a Picture of Yourself" thread is lacking pictures of you standing extremely awkwardly between Vegas showgirls?

However certain people will keep repeating lies that I'm posting "sexually explicit" content all over the forum, like Snowstalker claiming that I've engaged in "obnoxiously slutty behavior" in the PAPOY thread, here is my "obnoxiously slutty" contribution to the PAPOY thread: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=205070.msg4445097#msg4445097

Snowstalker would prefer that all gay men posting in that thread adorn full burka before taking photos of themselves.

The only thing notable about those pics of Libertas is that he's kind of posing like girls often do in selfies.  I'm irritated that Snow would call that "slutty". 

Has your leftism been relegated to economic matters, dude?

I certainly didn't intentionally strike a "girly" pose in my selfies, I just liked those poses. But if my poses do in fact resemble the way girls often pose in selfies, and Snowstalker considers my pics to be "obnoxiously slutty", then all I can say is wow, that's pretty awful and misogynistic.

There seems to be a subtle yet consistent anti-LGBTQ strain running through most of the criticism of me.

Now my selfies aren't manly enough, instead of looking like a manly man, I look like some "obnoxiously slutty" girl.

Libertas, did the events of your story cause you mental anguish? That was not my interpretation of your narrative.

Well I was never given the chance to discuss my own feelings, then and now, about my experiences with that guy. It was a rather multilayered complex story about experiences with a complicated individual, and I certainly spent a lot of time thinking about him and the whole situation while on dates with him, debating whether to go on another date with him, and in retrospect now that it's all in the past. Unfortunately certain simpletons just zeroed in on the "eww gay people engage in sexual activity?" suggestion as part of their campaign to ban me, so the whole story has been disappeared from the forum, and I'm hesitant to go into further detail about a story that was a source of such controversy. My original intention to follow up the second 'chapter' of that story with more detail about what was going on in my own head was obviously 86ed in light of the controversy.

I drink both coffee and tea.

And I drink wide varieties of both coffee and tea.

My tea cabinet is filled with like a hundred different varieties of black, green, white, oolong loose-leaf teas along with rooibos, honeybush, chamomile and other herbal tisanes.

Not knowing much about the race except that Bob Taft was ultimately a lousy governor but won this election by 20 points, I'll default to the Democrat as the safe option, Tim Hagan.

I don't think I 're-ignored' you.  It must have been the default setting when your account was unbanned.  Anyway, the context of my post (and I could have been more clear) is that I began reading your posts a few days ago, so for example, I think I read the stories of a sexual nature that some of the other posters are disparaging.  I found them amusing, personally.

Just as I had read these, I stumbled upon your response here and thought less of you, both for using all caps and then not plainly asking a question of some kind.  And you never cook.  That's disgraceful.  Tongue

LOL well perhaps I was being too harsh in saying NEVER. When I have a hangover, I do make eggs for the cysteine to help break down the alcohol ASAP. I do know how to boil pasta and even make a filetto di pomodoro sauce. Though I only eat whole wheat pasta these days. But when I was at college I couldn't cook (besides using a dorm room microwave) and was on a meal plan with college dining facilities, and now that I'm living at home again my mother cooks and she would not want me cooking in her kitchen. The only time I've ever cooked regularly was when I studied abroad in Rome, Italy and had a very nice appartamento in Trastevere with a full kitchen, and no cafeteria to go to nor mother to cook for me, but a grocery store right next door, so I was forced to learn how to cook some basic food items or else spend every last euro I had on dining out. (Though the kebab place right next to our apartment was my cheap 'fast food' option there when I was too lazy to cook, I still miss my piatto falafel and panino kebab!). I wish I had more culinary abilities though. Sad

Anyway I did ask an indirect question, as Retromike answered below. Tongue
49  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Male Privilege on: January 15, 2015, 12:09:20 am
On another issue, it is true that gender non-conforming little girls and even grown women are more accepted by our society than gender non-conforming little boys and men. A girl who prefers sports to dolls is just a fun 'tomboy', while a boy who hates sports and likes dolls is a 'sissy' to be made fun of.

While this is true, I almost see this as more of a sign that "female"-like behavior has an inherently negative connotation.  After all, coaches often tell us guys we're "acting like girls" if we ran poorly or something.  Being female is so often conflated with being incompetent or in some way "abnormal" (which is why most languages use masculine to describe a mixed-sex group of people); this is why a girl being called a guy is far less insulting than the other way around in most instances.  As such, I actually view that as further evidence of male privilege.

It's an example of how masculinity is valued over femininity, but I don't see it as male privilege, since it harms males. Hence why feminism would liberate both women and men.

I think Libertas will be fine as long as he doesn't keep acting like the victim of some organised witchhunt.

It's funny you should say that, as I had him on ignore in both of his incarnations my only interaction with him was a fantasy politics case where he acted extraordinarily paranoid, as though he were being persecuted in a collaboration of all these separate people.

I did read a few of his recent stories, and found them amusing, but I think he has a very abrasive nature that does not seem to have mellowed.  I don't remember why he was banned, and I'd prefer to see contributors who wish to return be given a chance to do so.  But he certainly strikes me as someone who has not changed on a truly fundamental level.

The 'old' Libertas certainly had an abrasive nature, however I really am not getting where you are getting this idea that I am "abrasive" now, especially if you have me on ignore.

Likewise, how do I strike you as someone "someone who has not changed on a truly fundamental level" when you haven't interacted with me and you have me on ignore?

Note... "had".

He said he had me on ignore in both of my 'incarnations', which means he has had me on ignore both as the 'old' Libertas and the 'new' Libertas who has only been here 2 weeks. He doesn't say anywhere that he took me off ignore, and even he had, we've had zero interaction with each other.
