You may or may not know this but I am 100% bi-sexual. Me and a girlfriend of mine got into a debate about what is pretty and what is not. So as I often say now, "OFF TO THINK ATHEIST INTERWEBS TO ASK RATIONAL PEOPLE!"
So here I am with a few questions:
I will be at work most of the day but I will be able to read most of your responses on my phone.
You're not alone. Upon seeing the topic, I immediately thought, "Relevance?" Seems pretty random. Then I thought, "Oh, joy! Another post where we evaluate the image of a woman. Nuuurrrp, the atheist community is completely perfect; it has nothing to gain from exploring feminism. This isn't alienating at all." Upon investigation of the post, I am still questioning the point of this exercise.
You appear to be finding yourself in a very small minority. Whether that means you have better mental facilities or not than those who bit on the topic can probably be debated. :)
I think that is an excellent point.
But so, too, was the point that an athiesm forum by necessity has to conatin content that is not, by strict definition, atheistic. How boring if all we did was discuss how we don't believe in a god or gods and things like Humanism, civil rights, etc. were taboo because they are not about the unbelief in deities?
But your point is really good, too.
"Small Talk - Discuss general issues that don't fit in other board categories"
Regardless of the appropriateness of this particular topic, it is worth noting that it is in the off-topic section of the board.
Exactly,and its the members that have made it the number 1 in the big discussion's at the moment so there has been interest in it either way,but I do wonder how much attention positive or negative this would have had,had one of our less attractive members had posted it.
When you strip away the topic, people stop talking about what they know about things and start to talk about what they know about themselves. I find that equally interesting as a test of knowledge such as a debate.
Also, people's pictures on the internet are self-selected, and will only be the pictures they specifically don't mind sharing with others. People always look better in the pictures than in reality, and almost noone would put up a picture they find unflattering. It's possible you have a point, but I don't have a large habit of prowling other people's profiles for pics..
What a strange thing to say,I was talking about profile pictures but each to their own Arcus,whatever you get up to, I didn't really want to know about it,even if its not a large habit,its still a habit none the less.I'd seek help if it gets any worse.
If you want to be really technical, there would be no point in any of us posting anything as it is an atheist forum and we all already know no gods exist. So there is nothing that is directly related.
We do tend to think differently from most folks and this site is an avenue to explore that.
I object because for myself a primary reason for becoming an Atheist was to get away from the exclusivity of religion. I feel we should not discourage anyone from discussing anything on this forum. I have to admit this was not the topic I was expecting to find on this site but that is kind of what attracted me to it. I'm always the junky for something different. I also think this is a great place for those types of topics because I'm sure the same topic on Facebook would be met with a buffet of immature and offensive replies.
Her eyes are really nice, the hair is good, but like the others have said, the rest looks fake. She looks like she'd be stuck up, not approachable. Personally I think you are much more attractive and given the choice you'd be my pick (but i'm happily married, I'm just telling you what I think)
And yes, I clicked on the link. :)
No, I'd have to know her, what is in her mind. Maybe cause I'm older or my life experiences but there is nothing in a pretty face or the rest of it!
