I like keeping my nexus window open to pop back and forth, even while I'm doing other things (or listening to music). But the ding won't stop even at lowest level.Please make it (optionally) go awayContinue

jay H replied to Travis Hedglin's discussion Whats the deal with feminism?
"There is some wackaloonery in feminism (or call themselves feminists), though I suspect  these are the outliers. One area that this is common is to confuse equal rights with the belief that men and women are essentially identical. (This may be…"

"There is sometimes a difference when it's an expected death. My father had a stroke, and died some months later. To me, he died with the stroke. He was physically alive after that but the man I knew was gone. My brother was much more shaken up…"

"One more point on a completely different point. "There appears to be a desire to keep feminism separate from secularism, but by its own definition, secularism should embrace some aspects, and even stand up for, feminism in some…"

""You risk getting pregnant when you have sex. Why do I have to pay for your risk?” Or my favorite,”If you would keep your legs shut, you wouldn’t need birth control.” Men basically are told the exact same thing when it…"

jay H replied to Freethinker31's discussion Are Atheists too judgmental??
"Atheists come in a wide range of styles. A few remind me of the fire- and -brimstone variety, but most of us are not like that. I really don't care what people choose to believe as long as they don't force it on others. As long as they…"

jay H replied to MattyLJ's discussion Haveyou ever seen a self centered person become the opposite?
"People who are truly self centered never see it. I was recently reading a study about psychological characteristics of some highly innovative people. According to the author they all shared a sense of confidence in their abilities combined with self…"

Michael Penn replied to jay H's discussion Employee fired for not praying
"That's really some odd crap. The sad thing is that more and more people in this country who are religious seem to be thinking this way. As I read it all I'm thinking of the crying McGowan wanting so badly to "be with Jesus."…"

jay H replied to Bertold Brautigan's discussion David Barton, current de facto head of the dominionist movement, claims the founding fathers wanted the Bible taught in schools to prevent another inquisition

About Me:
I'm an old coot, raised JW, became sceptical then outrightly disbelieving many years ago.

Politically (after years of wandering through philosophies-du-jour), I'm strongly pro-individual freedom, pro-market, to the discomfort of both my liberal and conservative friends.

Day job is computer administration for a large corporation. Off hours I like anything with machines and tools.

We live in a society of generalities: not all cyclists are rednecks and vice versa. No offense intended.

Nice looking dog you have! "Securing" a dog is a concern. Previous dogs have stayed outdoors ALL the time, never running away . But I live out in the country. Free roaming is my preference, but the H.S. doesn't like to hear that. I'm losing sleep trying to come up with an alternative.
