Yeah, it needed clarification but I believe we're on the same page lol
I know what you mean, all too often, Unseen's comments require not only a translation, but a Surgeon General's Warning, but I've spent the past year learning his primitive language, consisting largely of grunts and pointing, and feel qualified to act as a translator. Sometimes, if you're really lucky, you can just give him a cookie and he goes away --
@Simon: It isn't really me taking it in any way, it is me pointing out that you are trivializing a difficult debate. As for women having sex and taking advantage of their sexual capital, that's something I wholeheartedly support. It's a bit different from the epitaph, which is usually lobbed if cheating, lying, or stealing of some sort has been involved.
I think it would be better to have a calm debate over what women can do to minimize their probability of being victimized, and I would reiterate that choice of clothing and level of alcohol/drug consumption would be relevant points in such a debate. None of us here are in any way supportive of rape or lack sympathy with victims, but that doesn't subtract from the potential of analyzing the situational factors which led up to the events for commonalities.
I agree Arcus that rape prevention should be the onus here, but be wary of analyzing anything involving an emotionally-charged subject on this thread - we don't need another conflagration!
Apparently, of the many, many differences between us Simon, one is that I don't grovel, another would be that I have enough spine, not to apologize for having done nothing wrong.
Word to the wise, Strega - a really effective "spit-take" requires carefully calculated aim --
@Simon, lol, "corrected" - kk
@Simon, it would be cool to have known you in real life. Your posts are always entertaining. I want to read that "quite good" post you lost if you can get the time to redo it ;-)
@Unseen - works for me, but we've yet to hear from "Moderator Dan" --
If I didn't understand archy and unseen by now, I might be a tad concerned :)
