You ever know someone who's not necessarily "unattractive" but you have absolutely zero sexual attraction to them also? Like, you could never see yourself sleeping with/dating them, but you can't explain why, like they give off a "sister" vibe?

[–]NastyWetSmear 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I've felt that way before. I've even felt it about people who are more than conventionally attractive. People who I can look at and say: "Yeah, she's beautiful."... And then just feel nothing about at all.

I assume it's some evolutionary, lizard brain quirk. Something instinctive in me that tells me, on some biological level that I can smell or see but not consciously understand, that we wouldn't be a good pair to be breeding? My eyes tell me that they are beautiful, my brain tells me they are nice, but some instinctive ape centre inside me says: "No, our kids would have lung problems and would die trying to climb their first tree. NEXT!"

Love, lust and desire are odd things like that. It's like a woman describing her ideal man to a person who matches every criteria she's describing and then going off with someone else who seems to have none of those qualities - we might know, intellectually, what's good about a person but be biologically driven to get something else despite ourselves. Very odd.

I think I agree with you. If she did or said something to end their relationship (even if she "dumped him") he moved on and married a woman who is now his wife, and he did so by choice, not willing to wait for the ex to come to her senses.

He can be free from guilt if he gave her the opportunity to write her communication out, whatever it was she wanted to say. If she is not willing to do that, that is more evidence that he is being set up for a fall.

Maybe she dumped him.

The way I see it, nothing the ex says is going to be any good for his current relationship.

It's probably something like "you were the one, I messed up, I missed you so much," and "all I want is one last time together."

I don't know if he should or not but he'd be walking into a minefield. Seems wrong to deny someone such a basic last wish and he'll always wonder what she was going to say if he doesn't.

Never been, but I keep hearing it's a beautiful city

It is! Especially the downtown part of it. Though it's not always like that - in winter it's just plain depressing everywhere you go. Would not recommend. Though maybe it's just me.

Is the city a pretty even mix of old architecture and new?

Yeah, pretty much so. Though, the closer you get to the outskirts, the more ugly ass lifeless modern buildings you see.

What are the main night life / Saturday nigh evening out activities?

I think it's pretty much the same everywhere. Tons of bars, restaurants and clubs open all night in the city centre, very peaceful & quiet outside of the major areas. I don't know, you gotta ask someone more experienced about that. I usually just stroll around in an attempt to feel alive, lol. That's what I was doing when I took this pic.

Absolutely not. If they did, everyone would have been in jail by now.

In principle, the government could just arrest you for sharing 'intelligence' (pictures of a street).

And then he bent the knee to the trans crowd and I’ve never read or listened to him again.

The woman is his "ex" because he left her, gave up on her, severed the relationship.... even if it was because of something she did or said, and his choice was finalized when he chose to marry another woman. When he married another woman he declared the previous relationship was over.

It's suspicious that he says they must speak in person face to face. How can the "ex" be demanding on how they communicate when they are no longer in a relationship?

My thoughts: We should do more to be reconciled with people while they are yet living instead of waiting for them to die. It would be good for him to confess his faults to both his ex and his wife to gain their forgiveness. He could give the "ex" the option to communicate openly with him, so that his wife could also hear or read what is said, but not privately face-to-face. He would hurt his wife doing so and could even fall into temptation in person and make matters even worse. A safe option would be for him to send the ex a written message, allowing the wife to read it first. If the ex is serious about communicating, she will compromise on the requirement for it to be in person and also reply in writing for the wife to also see.

Some of you may not have been in the mind space for this yet but back in the day this exact same JKR effect happened to a different person.

Dan Savage is/was a very well known gay man who would ostensibly be with transgender people on 99.99% of issues. He was giving a speech at a university and used the word "tranny", which at the time was still a very common term and it was perceived more like a shorthand way of saying transsexual. Like saying granny for grandma, etc. anyway, at some point the early 4th wave type TRAs decided that word had become the "T slur" and a bunch of the students freaked the hell out and were like throwing themselves out of the auditorium claiming they were experiencing violence etc... Dan Savage became the "big bad" to the LGBT community even though he did more on his own that all of those people combined. They tried to make it like he dropped the N bomb in the middle of his talk. It was CRAZY how much they hated him. The difference is Dan Savage decided his career depended on staying in the good graces so he caved in and threw himself at the feet of the TRA mob. He had to come up with excuses about a different time etc... They still hated him for a long time afterwards and perhaps he just faded away because JKR popped up as the new "big bad" and she refused to cave in to their demands.

Instead of rationality, they display a consistent pattern of being delusional with hubris, constantly overestimating their own standing and capacities, mistaking their wishes for reality, and, in general, misreading the global room we call humanity. Clearly, a complete theory of this epidemic of Western “elite” delusion is beyond a short essay. There is no doubt that is has something to do with having had it too easy for too long while wielding too much power far too easily: Hegemonitis, as some observers have aptly called this syndrome.

I think that the Western elites have become drunk with their delusions, especially after the end off the Cold War.

But what even the critics of such dishonest and self-defeating strategies do not pay enough attention to is another effect: The prancing Western politicos high on their latest “color revolution” trip (a historic city center preferably in winter, after dark, or well-fumigated by the smell of burning tires and a touch of tear gas; enthusiastic crowds who don’t know any better, wrapped in mass-distributed EU flags; a speech giving you that “Kennedy in West Berlin” high; a brave march when you know you would never be touched by the police because that would be a scandal – you know the drill…) are not merely annoying. Unbeknownst to them, they are also very symptomatic. For having its own bullshit about its own “value”-“garden” superiority echoed back to it by those too inexperienced or dependent to know better is one way in which the West has made itself so very, very stupid.

The reality is that the US doesn't care about the Georgians - what they really care about is trying to get a puppet in Tiblisi to open up a second front against the Russians because Ukraine is losing badly. The reality is if there is a coup regime and it goes to war, it will lose badly to the Russians - far worse than 2008. The US is merely using the Georgians.

Leftist political parties in several countries have led calls for peace between Russia and Ukraine and have stoked the debate over whether the new military spending could be better spent on health care or social programs.

That's why the left is being persecuted by the ruling elite.

I think that after this conflict is over, we are going to learn that the Western world spent far more than is commonly revealed on a losing war with Russia.

I wonder if the models that do not require login are less powerful than the ones that do.

I agree with you, because God gives the people a leader that matches the nation's spirit. That does not mean his physical appearance, such as his skin color, is the image of the people.... but his spirit is the representation of the people.

Joe Biden has a reputation of being forgetful and falling down. America in general is the same. The once-great nation has forgotten God and is now falling.

u/GuyWhite is one of our resident race dividers.... he tries to incite hatred against people based on skin color alone. It is the desires of the man's heart that defines him, not his race. He has blackness in his heart but he calls himself white. And I pray he would repent before it is too late.

Honestly that's fucking hilarious.

I need to add in my performative hate for this author in case any of the people reading it disagree with her views enough to get upset over me writing fanfic in her world. Like if anyone hates her that much they wouldn't be reading it? The really funny thing is I don't think she'd care beyond breaking them by saying "thank you for supporting me and my views by continuing to write things and generate interest in my franchise"

That rewrite is funny as fuck though. Because in that case aren't they going the whole trans medicalist route and only saying that they're valid if they take the potion? What happened to you don't need dysphoria to be trans? Seems like that author is a transphobe on the level of Rowling to me.

I read fanfiction (it passes the time, and it costs nothing) and I've run across more than a few authors who openly proclaim their utter loathing for Rowling and view their continued use of her material as somehow "taking it back" for the oppressed people she's supposedly advocating the genocide of. They really do make the central aspect of their lives this woman and her refusal to validate the mentally ill, the fetishists, and the predators.

(One guy actually went so far as to rewrite something like 1/3 of a 10k-word chapter just to put in a massive "take that" against Rowling with a totally irrelevant digression into how one of the key characters is actually trans and thanks to a magical potion is able to be their "correct" gender, and how trans people are actually really common in magical society thanks to this potion.)

You ever know someone who's not necessarily "unattractive" but you have absolutely zero sexual attraction to them also?

Alternate explanation: These people are trans and pass well enough to trick your eyes but not enough to trick your brain and subconsciously you can tell there's very subtle anatomy clues and hints to let you know they're not the sex they're pretending to be which is why they can "look pretty" but you wouldn't want to sleep with them cause they're actually a man and something about them (slender hips, slightly large jaw, extended brow, etc.) is telling your brain that.

This person is not trans, though. She's 5'6"-5'7" and her voice is extremely feminine; no man can sound like that.

That's why they hate her so much. She agrees with them on 99.99% of things. Therefore she is the worst because she 'betrayed' them.

Honestly it's nuts to put that much thought into any author. She wrote a book, she's not obligated to agree with you on every point just because you never branched out into other literature. I do think that's part of it, they see her as 'tainting' the only book series they ever read.

It’s not surprising that they’ve used this too.

maybe the reason people want nothing to do with you is not due to a “phobia” but simply because normal people find you fucking exhausting to deal with.

That was what pushed me over the "peak trans" moment. Actually I had several of those moments hit people I was friends with and 1 or 2 with me. It's like at every opportunity they find some way to make you not want to interact with them.

Unfortunately the friends seemed to end up bowing to the peer pressure and went full cult and i haven't really talked to them anymore. The fact that the cult hurt them in the first place helped push me over the top of the mountain and over time i become less and less interested in appeasing them.

The problem is narcissism. These people don't realize that as long as they hate themselves and keep trying fake identities to convince people to like them that they can never have a normal healthy relationship because the other person will always either be 1) attracted to the fake version of them [a chaser] or 2) in love with the actual them, which runs at odds with their super fake trans persona [a transphobe]. Obviously no one can ever love them "as a trans person" since trans is fake and that identity is phony.

They have set it up so there's no way to win. These people are professional victims.

Excellent summary.

Though you discuss death by 'gas', I think another item can be included as a line item that addresses specifically:

The outbreak of typhus in the winter of 1941-42 resulted in the use of Zyklon B to fumigate prisoners. Although a standard argument about this is that "a catastrophic typhus epidemic in the winter of 1941–2 coincided with the search for a mass killing method for human undesirables.", one could of course argue that delousing was necessary, and not attempted murder. And if we consider the period of 1940-45, Zyklon B is considered to have killed "approximately 1.1 million people in gas chambers installed at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Majdanek, and other extermination camps.", not the much higher numbers often suggested. Moreover, typhus killed 3 million in Russia during WWII, and several million in Poland and Eastern block countries. Add to that the millions killed in the same countries during WWI. So, how did the other ~5 million Jewish prisoners die? The logistics are difficult to calculate, though I appreciate that there are maps with numbers of the dead, I think it's still difficult to understand them. And how many non-Jewish prisoners died? I don't doubt the Holocaust, or the genocide of Jews, but the account of it should be corrected with the appropriate numbers.
