Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

I'm with you Joan. It's personal, private, & not for public display.

Ruth, the dietitian not only affirmed your comment about Vit D, but gave me material with science non-biased research to demonstrate its effectiveness. 

She also gave me a website for evidence-based research for information on herbs and cancer.

Napoleon, you can judge me a prude, a Victorian, a Tight Ass, or any other word or phase you like. I don't like sex talk. If I like it, I know where to go to see all kinds, every position, using every orifice imaginable. I left GLBT because they have every right to discuss sexuality and I don't like to read or watch it although I support their efforts. I can support them in other ways. 

I don't apologize for being who I am, nor do I judge you for being who you are, or anyone else. Sex is a personal thing and private.

Of course, Ruth, I agree with you. It's not an issue, I was making a parody of a typical grievance and found it amusing.

I think the video is punk art albeit utilizing a pornographic film.

I am happy if my videos are seen and any publicity is good publicity.

The 'Filthy Habits' video might violate the AN standard of not posting something inappropriate for a 14 year old, since it's sexually explicit. While I have no objection to masturbation video in general, I can see how that's doesn't further our purpose. Leaving it here would just give ammunition to critics who view sex as filthy. I'm personally sex-positive. I consider consensual sex among adults as normal healthy behavior, no more morally reprehensible than eating. However AN has to function within a larger Dominator culture in which sex is taboo.

We're not really stitched up, as I see it. You can load up on sexually explicit material from the internet all you want. It just doesn't fit with our purpose here.

We have to pick our battles, Napoleon.

For your enjoyment ... a couple of music legends share a song together ... and we're goin' to Graceland!

I was wondering the same thing Lillie!

Joan, you are the wonderful Matriarch of your wonderful Family!  They are all so fortunate to have you, and you are fortunate to have them!

Love the cat scan.  Wonder how on earth they got the cat to stay there.  Mine would have rebelled.

Stop Atheist Nexus censorship of Art.

http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/noproblematheists

Are you aware that 'Atheist Nexus' has recently removed material for your proper consideration deeming it unsuitable. In fact, there's nothing you can do about it because this apparent act of censorship relates to the agreement of membership and any remedy is in the law of contract and is not a civil rights issue. In other words the Guv has us stitched up.

If you don't care either you can see the censored material at;
